What’s on the Menu
Healthy food is a key tenet of Amatara’s philosophy. All meals are prepared with organic produce. If you are following a detox or weight loss programme, your meals will be custom-made for you. You will also have the option to spend three days on a juice cleanse (with a minimum 7-night stay). There are numerous eateries – so plenty of choice! The restaurant 'Senses' serves health Asian fusion meals, including salads, smoothies and broths. Restaurant 'Scene' serves delicious, fresh fish and seafood, as well as a selection of international dishes. A third restaurant 'Siri' offers local Thai dishes throughout the day. Drinks and light snacks are available all day long from the library and the poolside and beach terraces.
- Be sure to try the ‘jetlag juice’ containing energy-boosting ingredients that will reduce symptoms of fatigue following your lengthy flight.
- Take a boat trip around the Phang Nga Bay. It was here that the James Bond film ‘Man with the Golden Gun’ was filmed. And it isn’t difficult to see why.
- The Thai cooking lessons are a must! You even get to take the ingredients home with you so that you can cook the dish again when you’re home.
