Phuket, 21 April, 2016 – Amatara Resort & Wellness has recently launched The Retreat, a new restaurant dedicated to serving healthy and nutritious food and beverages. Previously known as The Club, the newly refreshed restaurant better harmonises the resort’s food and beverage offerings with its high quality spa and luxury wellness programs and facilities.
Mr. Brice Borin, General Manager of Amatara Resort & Wellness said, “The Retreat is an exciting addition to our restaurant outlets and is a hidden gem for healthy food lovers. The Retreat opens for breakfast for Wellness Retreat guests and Pool Villa guests, as well as for lunch and dinner for all guests looking for healthy cuisine of exceptional quality. We recently launched the world’s first luxury Thai hammam experience at Amatara, as well as reinventing our premium spa and wellness programs. The Retreat is an incredible ocean-view dining outlet to blend perfectly with the Amatara Wellness guest experience.”
The Amatara wellness cuisine concept is deeply rooted in ancient traditions, making it a peaceful sanctuary to embrace authentic healing and living foods. The menu is based on local Thai cultural inspiration, which encourages the nurturing of harmony with spirit, the environment and to re-connect with one another. Amatara’s mind, body and spirit approach to wellness and wholefood supports an organic healing process to naturally heal and improve the body and state of wellbeing; a key part of this is of course superb nutrition.
Ms. Phoebe Boonkerd, Amatara’s Wellness Director said, “Through guest’s experience of our simple, balanced, creative and delicious wholefood cuisine, it is our hope that guest returns home feeling nourished and rejuvenated, and inspired to continue the journey of good health through optimal nutrition. The menu is designed by our head chef and our nutritionists; it offers a delicious and healthy composition of the highest quality local and imported ingredients, organic fruits, vegetables and free-range meat and poultry.
The Retreat will be serving a variety of healthy options including raw juice blends, superfood smoothie blends, salads, appetisers, soups, broth, main course, desserts, herbal tea and healthy coffee. These are delicately crafted in-house based on foundations of using real, unrefined whole foods, free range, cold–pressed oil and avoiding additives, pesticides, toxins, refined sugars and extremes of temperature.
The menu features seasonal, innovative cuisine with a diverse array of traditional and modern healthy eating influences. For example, the delicious-yet-healthy menus feature Soft Cured Ocean Trout with Organic Leaf Salad, Poached Prawns & Quinoa Salad with Ginger and Ginseng Dressing, Goji & Mussel Chowder Soup, Stir Fried Beef Tenderloin with Ginger and Yuzu Soy Sauce, Young Coconut Pudding and many more.
