You and U Zenmaya Phuket ’s ZEASCAPE Restaurant
If you were to hold a competition to discover the most fabulous place to watch the glorious sun setting across the Andaman Sea while enjoying a cool refreshing sun-downer followed by a sumptuous dinner of fine food and wine, then the recently-opened U Zenmaya Phuket resort with its delightful open-air Zeascape terrace restaurant would surely be a very serious contender for the top prize.
This charming new five star resort is set within a verdant green amphitheater of trees and foliage beside the coastal road that leads from the bustling nightlife center of Patong northwards to Kamala Beach. The resort nestles on the west coast overlooking the crashing waves and frothing spume of the sea below with stunning views across Patong Bay to the soaring hills of the headland to Patong’s south.
U Zenmaya Phuket is a luxury boutique hotel featuring fifty elegant rooms all designed in a Sino-Portuguese style influenced by the local heritage of Phuket Town. The terrace of the resort’s Zeascape Restaurant features both indoor and al fresco dining with the abundant natural greenery and fabulous scenery acting as a complementary backdrop to the pleasures of the table and accompanying drinks.
Zeascape Restaurant is the perfect place to take your friends to drink, eat and talk by the sea and the incomparable seascape vista provides a seductive backdrop which is tailor-made for an evening spent in the very best of company. The restaurant’s discretely impeccable service perfectly complements the cuisine and the moment you walk through the door you are warmly greeted by the staff with your every request being met with a
service standard that is attentive, yet never intrusive.
The ethos of Zeascape Restaurant is stated at the very top of its extensive menu. It says “To share is to care. Food in the end, in our own tradition, is something holy. It’s not about nutrients and calories. It’s about sharing. It’s about honesty. It’s about identity.” With those wise words ringing in our ears and a lovely Andaman sunset just making its presence felt, we set about sampling a cocktail from the broad array on offer, followed by starters of ruby red Ahi tuna paired with cashew sambal and avocado, fresh scallops on their half shells and seared Wagyu beef strips served on local, grown in Thailand,organic, and free-range vegetables, keeping the authentic Thai flavours presented in a modern way, it is simply an innovative way of presenting Thai food with a modern touch.
All were totally delicious, there’s a huge choice on the menu ranging from superb Thai specialties through to fresh healthy Mediterranean choices, with popular staples such as pizzas, pastas, burgers, salads and sandwiches in abundance. In addition, there are ample temptations in the “Small Bites” and “Appetizers” section of the menu and delving into the “From the Sea” and “Cooked Meats” selection also unearthed many delicious gems. Finally we couldn’t miss the tempting array of decadent desserts and large ice cream selection to round off this culinary treat for the all the senses! We’d like to suggest taking your friends along and see if they agree that Zeascape Restaurant is one of the best combinations of fine cuisine, a great atmosphere and stunning scenery to be found on Phuket.U Zenmaya Phuket6/181 Moo 6, Kamala, Kathu, Phuket 83150 ThailandTel: +66 (0)76 336 888www.uzenmayaphuket.com
