What are the highlights of Full Moon Restaurant in Samui?

Full Moon Restaurant is set in the centre of the nicely landscaped tropical garden of the resort in a 2-storey rectangular building alongside the infinity-edged swimming pool. The ground floor hosts the kitchen and the pool bar, while the second floor is an open-sided terrace that can comfortably accommodate up to 30 guests.

At lunchtime, Full Moon is an idyllic tropical restaurant: the view to the pool, with Bophut Bay and Koh Phangan in the background, is stunning. The ambience is relaxed yet elegant. 

After sunset, low lighting gives the restaurant an intimate feel and the only sounds to be heard are those of the small insects and frogs which live in the park, giving the venue a romantic touch. The service is in line with the high standards of Anantara.
