The sunny Phuket is the home to many nice resorts and hotels, from basic to top-notch, from traditional to contemporary, from vibrant and crowdy to calm and serene. One of the most stylish, tranquil oasises near the popular, somewhat hippyish tropical sandy Surin Beach is the Twinpalms Resort.
Bangkok is booming when it comes to fine dining. More and more top-notch restaurants pop up, and there’s definitely more than Thai food to discover in this cosmopolitan city. Take Sühring for example, the exciting project of the renowned German twin brothers Mathias and Thomas Sühring, presenting gastronomic dishes inspired by their home country. With Thailand’s number one Gaggan’s closing in 2020 in mind, Sühring might be the restaurant to take the leading place in most culinary lists, like Asia’s 50 Best, Michelin and The Best Chef Awards. So we went to Bangkok to discover this unique hideaway where German comfort food is lifted to the highest level of gastronomic cooking.
Offering ultimate luxury and privacy, Trisara is the most exclusive and magical resort in Phuket. Be amazed and spend your holidays in one of the ocean view pool suites or villas with top-notch service, enjoy the tranquil beaches and gardens or organize a boat cruise and you’re sure to be totally relaxed, revived and satisfied when you leave. But beware, as chances are that you will never want to go home…

With its amazing views on the neighbouring islands and mangroves, charming fishermen villages like Rawai and not to miss activities like a visit to the Promteph Cape and the Old Town of Phuket, this side of the island has so much to offer. The most quiet area of the rather crowdy Phuket has stolen our hearts. And we’re sure our stay at The Vijitt Resort had something to do with that as well.
Young, ambitious and adventurous… Jim Ophorst (or “Jimmy”, as most Asian people like to say) is a name to remember, as we expect this talented chef to achieve great things in the future. He has made the Thai island of Phuket a must visit stopover for foodies, establishing a truly unique dining concept, that just got awarded its first Michelin star. Chef Jim Ophorst is also one of the selected chefs for the 2019 The Best Chef Awards, so we paid him a visit to discover his cuisine and philosophy.

A restaurant serving artisanal Thai food, conceived by one of the most talented and respected female chefs in Bangkok, rewarded with an excellent ranking in the most renowned culinary listings like Michelin (1 star) and Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants (#31)… If that can’t convince you to schedule a trip to Paste Restaurant, we wouldn’t know what would trigger you anyway…
