What are the highlights of The View Restaurant in Koh Samui?

The View Restaurant is breezy and open-sided with a great vista of neighbouring Koh Phangan across the water. Spectacular bamboo partitions separate the lush seating arrangements – both table and sofa dining available – and a pool bar is just metres away.

Overhead and pillar lighting is kept to a romantic low with additional table candle lamps. The View also has a beach dining option for that special moment: staff members will set up table and chairs in the sand along with bamboo partitions and flaming torches to set the mood for you.

The View is spacious and yet intimate in parts with a vibe that's almost Mediterranean in tone. The discreet lighting helps the atmosphere along, but the setting and views elevate the experience above what you might expect at an ordinary hotel restaurant.

What to eat and drink at The View at Melati Resort in Koh Samui?

Pan-seared tuna with asparagus, eggplant on a bed of pine nuts, raisins and pumpkin is piquant and a hearty dish. All in all, a fine range of main course dishes along with a competent and inexpensive desserts menu.
