Santiburi Koh Samui, the high-end, experience-driven beachfront retreat, is inviting Thai residents to enjoy a magical festive season on Samui’s sun-kissed north shore. With joyous Christmas celebrations on 24th and 25th December 2020 and a glamorous New Year’s Eve dinner and party on 31st December 2020, every guest will be able to end the year in style.
Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, and Santiburi Koh Samui is celebrating this enchanting occasion with a choice of bountiful buffets at The Beach House, its serene seafront restaurant overlooking Mae Nam Beach, and the glistening Gulf of Thailand. Executive Chef Stephen Dion, a German-Canadian gastronomic expert with more than 15 years of experience at leading hotels and restaurants in Thailand, and a deep passion for local and sustainable ingredients will delight diners with his unique culinary style and mouth-watering creations.
On Christmas Eve (24th December 2020, 18:30 – 22:00 hrs), families and friends can come together and enjoy an amazing array of dishes from around the world. Diners’ taste buds will be tempted by vibrant Asian salads, soups and appetisers, including freshly-shucked oysters, tuna tartare and more. A live “surf & turf” barbecue will present grilled squid, rock lobster, succulent river prawns and premium Australian beef, and our expert chefs will be on hand to serve whole baked sea bass and our Christmas turkey – twice cooked (sous-vide and roasted) to maximise the flavour, then accompanied with wide range of side dishes all the usual trimmings, including Chef Stephen’s grandma’s stuffing recipe. Concluding with a delectable selection of desserts, including traditional Christmas cake and stollen, this amazing occasion will live long in the memory.
Then on Christmas Day (25th December 2020, 18:30 – 22:00 hrs), Chef Stephen and his team will embark on another epicurean adventure at The Beach House. This fantastic feast will feature many of the same delicacies as Christmas Eve, along with alternative delights such as house-smoked Scottish salmon, a special Caesar salad with soft shell crab, and Thailand’s favourite spicy and sour soup, tom yam, with pork shank. The barbecue will showcase squid, rock lobster, river prawns and Australian lamb cutlets, guests will be able to enjoy roast turkey with all the trimmings, and Chef Stephen will also highlight his German heritage with crispy pork knuckle, served with cabbage and bacon. And of course, no Christmas Day would be complete without a series of sweets, such as molten lava cake, flambéed Christmas crêpe Suzette, passionfruit tiramisu, and many more.
No matter which day guests choose to celebrate, Santiburi Koh Samui will make it a family affair with a dedicated Children’s Corner that contains everything kids love, such as mini burgers, pizzas, healthy salads and more, followed by tropical fruit salads and two flavours of ice cream. Youngsters will also be able to decorate their own gingerbread men in a live demonstration!
Finally, on 31st December 2020 (20:00 – 01:00 hrs), couples can come together and wave farewell to 2020 with a glittering evening at The Beach House. The New Year’s Eve “Golden Coconut” buffet transports gourmands on a global gastronomic journey with a selection of sublime salads, exquisite appetisers, tuna and salmon sashimi, ocean-fresh oysters, creamy seafood chowder and more. The sizzling barbecue will feature marinated squid, rock lobster, river prawns and sea bass, along with plenty of side dishes, sauces and dips, and the carving station will present crispy French duck leg confit and mustard & herb-crusted lamb rack. Indulgent desserts include pistachio crème brûlée, raspberry cheesecake, and Amaretto zabaglione with strawberries.
The evening does not end there; as the moon rises above the island and casts a soft glow over the sea, revellers will be entertained until 1am with a live band at the glamorous “black and gold” themed countdown party. What a wonderful way to end the year!
