Get On Top Rooftop Bar Of Patong
Phuket’s main nightlife center of Patong, with its stunning beach and abundant restaurants, bars, cafes, discos and seamier at-tractions is one of the world’s great cauldrons of hedonism and fun. But like any indulgence, too much of a good thing can eventually get on top of you, leaving you seeking a quieter corner in which to hunker down and enjoy a bit of relaxation, rather than in-your-face partying!
So, when Patong is starting to get on top of you, head over to the recently opened Swissotel Resort on Ruamchai Road at the southern end of Patong Beach and take the elevator from reception up to their wonderful rooftop eerie – their relaxing ON TOP Rooftop Bar.
This 1,100 square meter venue spreads out over two adjoining rooftops
and encompasses an enticing outdoor swimming pool area. The stunning oasis features flame-lit torches, 30 foot palm trees, sun loungers, cascading pools, day beds, and even private VIP cabanas. ON TOP Rooftop Bar is equally well suited for private events, group functions, and weddings or just casual dining amidst its stunning beach-like setting.
As you saunter out onto this lovely rooftop restaurant, with dramatic vistas over Patong and the Andaman Sea, you will feel your-self instinctively start to relax, and with the aroma of good cuisine emanating from their kitchen you realize that you are in for some thing special.
The Swissotel lies only a stone’s throw back form Patong Beach itself, and so the views from ON TOP Rooftop Bar are marvellous, facing out across
the Andaman Sea to the west, ideal for watching the dramatic sunsets, or alternatively over the verdantly tree-covered hillsides of Phuket Island’s central spine to the east.
Dynamic young New Zealand Chef Ryan Arboleda presides over the kitchen here and is overseeing a quiet revolution in the fresh, healthy cuisine on offer, featuring all the beachside Thai and European favorites such as burgers, pizzas, pastas, sandwiches, seafood and salads, each cooked to perfection, bringing out their healthiest side through produce selection and preparation.
Chef Ryan has extensive international experience, not to mention much previous local Phuket and Andaman experience at well-known resorts and beach clubs. and indeed, this broad experience shows through in the fine food on offer at ON TOP Rooftop Bar.
The circular bar is a cool place to sit and enjoy the fabulous vistas, or chill out and cuddle up in a cosy corner with your beloved while sipping a cool drink, grapes by the glass, hand-made mocktails, or healthy juice or smoothie.
So, whenever Patong is becoming a bit too hectic and is starting to get on top of you, head up to ON TOP Rooftop Bar, literally on top of the Swissotel and enjoy their fine food, cool drinks and deeply relaxing welcome.ON TOP Rooftop Bar
