Seaside Style and Sophistication at Coast Beach Bar & Gril l- Koh Samui, Thailand

It's arrived! Chaweng now has a top-end 300-seater beachside restaurant that offers outrageously delicious cuisine with every possible comfort in an idyllic location. Introducing the amazing Coast Beach Bar & Grill!

So where is this masterpiece of a beach restaurant? Well, it's an integral part of Centara Grand Beach Resort Samui, Chaweng's flagship 5-star hotel, so it couldn't be more centrally located, and you can reach Coast either from the beach itself or from the resort's main entrance on Chaweng Beach Road (where there's a large car-park).

And the first word you'll say to yourself as you approach from either direction, whether in the daytime when you arrive for brunch or lunch or at night for dinner, is a huge great "WOW!" The place is simply stunning and will take your breath away.

Centara boasts of having a longer beach frontage than any other resort in Chaweng and Coast takes full advantage of that by having a sizeable share of that for itself (30 metres!). Expansive white pinewood decking, with lots and lots of beautiful space between a multitude of table, chair and sofa 'sets' (enough to accommodate over 120 diners), with novel seating in hanging 'baskets', 'sunken' circular daybeds and even 'love-beds' – all at the very edge of the beach, just metres from the turquoise waves.

Crisp-white sail-canopies protect much of the outside dining and lounge areas from the intense daytime sun, and they add to the seaside theme of the whole restaurant. In the daytime, the cushions on the seating are light-blue and in the evening, when the romantic table candles, atmospheric lanterns and feature sculpture lighting come on, they are switched for burgundy ones. Nothing has been overlooked at Coast in making it an exceptionally stylish and sophisticated dining venue.

And that's confirmed by the three fabulous air-conditioned 'pavilions' that provide another dining option. Each follows the 'beach' theme, with lots of white paint with blue detail and floor-to-ceiling glass windows all around – ensuring a stunning sea view from every seat. One of the pavilions houses a wood-fired pizza oven and seating for just 16, making it ideal for small groups.

Another, also for 16, incorporates a walk-in wine cellar where you can browse through a most selective collection and make your choice, and it also has a large granite-topped glass cabinet displaying a wide selection of international cheeses (they've got just about every type!). The third pavilion is slightly larger and can accommodate 34 diners.

Before I mention the food, let me introduce the executive chef. And that's Luis Rodrigo Zamora. He's an Australian national who was born in Chile, and with over 14 years in the managerial role of many leading hotel kitchens and restaurants around the world (including the Marriott Hotel in Amsterdam, Holland, and the Pattaya Marriott Resort & Spa) he's the perfect man to be in charge of this stunning restaurant. And what he delivers at Coast is sensational!

To say that the menu offers a wide selection is a gross understatement – it's huge, and has lunch, dinner and 'all-day' sections too. From the lunch menu, there's a delicious Tasmanian Salmon with romaine lettuce, toasted garlic baguette, crisp bacon, shaved parmesan cheese, anchovies in a classic Caesar dressing, but if you're hankering for a burger, then the High-So Heart Attack Australian Wagyu beef burger with foie gras, brie cheese, arugula and tomato relish will more than satisfy your desire!

"...and then there's Coast's amazing weekly
'Champagne' Sunday Brunch."

And Coast is also proud of its 'Dishes to Share', for very good reasons – especially when they are as comprehensive and sumptuous as the Coast Connection, which comprises 6 Fine de Claire oysters, a 55-gram jar of Pescaviar Avruga with toast, and Alaskan king crab legs with a choice of its best companion bottle of Moet & Chandon 'Ice' champagne.

Pizzas, pasta, steaks, burgers, salads, various international selections, cold cuts, cheeses – the list goes on and on and there's literally everything you could possibly imagine, or want, available. And then we have extraordinarily tasty desserts, such as the Crunchy Spanish Churros with melted Swiss chocolate, and the Chocolate Rum Cake Pop, to finish you off!

In addition to all of the above, there's various entertainment including a bartender fire juggler, an acoustic guitar player and a jazz singer on different nights. And finally, there's Coast's amazing weekly 'Champagne' Sunday Brunch offering delicacies, such as sockeye salmon, Alaskan king crab, tiger prawns, imported cheese & cold cuts and sushi, and having an oyster bar, a bloody Mary counter, a grill station and a talented DJ into the bargain.

And it's no surprise that Coast won the 'Wine Spectator 2014' award for its superb collection either – say no more!

Coast Beach Bar & Grill is open for lunch from 12:00 noon until 6:00 pm and for dinner from 6:00 pm with the kitchen closing at 10:30 pm.
