Easter Sunday Koh Samui
My brother arrives for Easter next Sunday with his family and being a lover of fine dining I am compelled to seek out a venue that will keep our kids of varying ages happy and entertained as well as a serving a brunch of the high standards he is used to.
Here are my top picks - the final choice will be down to him.
1. Nikki Beach
Nikki Beach is something of an institution as an international playground for the young and beautiful and on Koh Samui, for an eclectic group of locals and tourists. Easter Sunday Brunch promises a wide selection of savory bites and sweet treats. Music and entertainment by Andy Vier, Henry Jimenez, Shane Shine and Gee Sax. Games and fun for the children has also been on the menu in previous years.
The brunch buffet starts at 11.00 AM and goes until 4.00 PM, with the party and entertainment continuing until sunset. The culinary spread includes an array of action stations, including pasta, crepe, waffle, and omelette stations, and a Waygu grill station, as well as sushi platters, raw bar, salad station and Chef selected specials. The price for the Brunch is 1800 THB for adults. Complimentary towels are available.

5. Centara Grand
Highly recommended award winning Sunday brunch on a lovely stretch of beach in Chaweng, COAST brings the best of sophisticated beach culture to Chaweng Beach, Koh Samui’s most exclusive stretch of sand. Stay all day to relax and explore their wide range of indoor and outdoor dining experiences. Enjoy the perfect mix of urban flair and relaxed beach vibe at this chic beach club and bistro which features lounging areas, extensive dining and drinking options, and DJ sets throughout the day up until the late hours. The grill-focused cuisine and laid-back attitude are Mediterranean in style and sensibility, while the warm service, farm-fresh local ingredients, and the venue’s architectural style are unmistakably Thai.
I have it on good authority which are the best beds to book - but that would be telling...
