The X-Factor Brunch at Xana
To be the best Sunday brunch in Phuket requires a number of specific ingredients to set it ahead of the many contenders for this esteemed accolade and there’s no doubt that XANA Beach Club has attained that perfection.In fact the very name X-A-N-A (from Xanadu the mythic name given to Shendu ruled over by Emperor Kubla Khan in Samuel Coleridge’s famous opium-inspired poem) can be viewed as spelling out exactly the magical ingredients that makes the XANA Beach Club Brunch on Bang Tao, Phuket’s perfect Sunday brunch for visitors and locals alike.
Firstly, the “X”….
Well X marks the spot of XANA’S picture-perfect beachside location on the golden sands of Bang Tao Beach looking westwards towards the setting sun and embracing the dazzling diamondiferous azure of the Andaman’s waves beyond.
As you walk into the extensive grounds of XANA set adjacent to the luxurious Angsana Resort, it’s hard not to think of that famous Carly Simon song; “You walked into the party like you were walking onto a yacht.” Yes, XANA makes you feel very special and privileged just to be alive on a glorious sun-filled Phuket Sunday and to be walking into the fabulous party that awaits you.
So the ‘A’ in XANA is for ambience and atmosphere which are incomparably happy, cool, welcoming and just the most fun way to spend your Sunday whether you are a family, a couple, or single.
The next important ingredient in being Phuket’s number one Sunday brunch is symbolized by the letter ‘N’ which stands of course for nutrition, nibbles or nosh!
The XAXA brunch food selection is huge, covering many stations arrayed between ocean, the 35 meter swimming pool and the verdantly-fringed lagoons of the Laguna’s grounds.The brunch runs from 11:30am to 15:30pm and it features Phuket’s largest selection of live food and cooking stations with a fabulous selection of European, Asian, Japanese and Thai dishes, as well as fresh fish and seafood, plus Mediterranean favorites.The salads, sashimi and sushi are a wonderful place to start and the selection of cooked meats, sauces and condiments to follow are second to none. But plan your own brunch selection carefully as there’s so much choice plus a magnificent selection of desserts that you won’t want to be too full to enjoy. And as if this weren’t enough the cheese selection, with nuts and candied fruits, is extensive and delicious too.
XANA features a large selection of cocktails, beers and wines, which complement the fabulous selection of foods and all the while resident DJ Wii spins his vibrant sets while wandering saxophonist Coco Jamboo adds in a plaintive live element to the musical vibe.
Kids are very welcome and will enjoy their own Kids’ Club and the exciting programs XANA has prepared. There’s also a cotton candy station which they’ll love and even a baby elephant that visits XANA each afternoon.
All this adds up to the final letter ‘A’ in XANA which stands for “AAAAAAAAAAAAAAH”…..the sigh of perfect contentment you’ll emit on experiencing XANA’s perfect brunch.
