Sala Sawasdee Lobby Bar
May 11, 2018
JW Marriott Phuket Resort and Spa is a huge tropical paradise, set on Mai Khao Beach and boasting no fewer than 11 restaurants and bars. For a truly spectacular evening drinking experience, head straight to the Sala Sawasdee Lobby Bar as the sun begins to make its descent. This elegant, open‐air bar looks over the resort’s reflection pool to the Andaman Sea beyond and is the prime spot to watch the hotel’s Evening Sunset Ceremony, lounging in one of the bar’s luxurious day beds. The daily event starts the evening in style, with a troupe of dancers and fire eaters performing a contemporary dance routine as the sun sinks into the sea. Once darkness has fallen, a roving band entertains the crowd with a range of popular music including classics from the 40s, 60s and 70s. View aside, the Lobby’s centrepiece is its horse‐shoe shaped bar, where highly trained bartenders mix up classic cocktails with a modern twist, taking advantage of Thailand’s array of exotic fruits. There’s also a good choice of premium spirits and an extensive list of wines by the glass. Tableside service showcases the very best of the legendary Thai hospitality. A range of food is available throughout the day and evening, including a creative menu of Asian‐style tapas.
