Romantic Flame-lit Beachfront Dinner for Two under the Stars at Hansar Samui

Hansar Samui is a stunning 74 room beachfront property located on the tropical stretch of golden sands and turquoise waters of Koh Samui’s upmarket Bophut Bay.  With every room offering a full seafront view, the resort offers a front seat to the idyllic island life.  

A leisurely stroll down the quaint cobblestone ‘walking street’ adjacent to the resort, is the vibrant Fisherman’s Village, with its antique wooden shop fronts, chic cafes and atmospheric seaside bars.
Hansar Samui - Dining Under the Stars

Overseeing the culinary team at Hansar Samui, Canadian Executive Chef Stephen Dion has an exceptional pedigree.  A unique opportunity to be the Private Chef to His Majesty the King of Jordan became a turning point in his career and he spent two years catering for the Family, as well as high profile dignitaries, VIPs and visiting Royalty including the Sultan of Brunei and Prince Charles to name a few.  

Stephen has created a unique and epicurean experience for resort guests, where they can appreciate exquisite French Mediterranean Cuisine, as well as the authentic Thai menu at the beachfront H Bistro restaurant.  Menu highlights include fresh Maine lobster and oysters flown from Canada, Japan and France, complemented by a carefully handpicked list of International wines and champagnes.
