The Food at the Sunday Brunch at Novotel Phuket Surin Beach
The most important element of any good brunch is, of course, the food available. The selection is extremely diverse, stretching from Japanese sushi to Italian pizzas and pastas. it hits all of the big popular notes, which will appeal to kids and grown-ups looking for familiar flavours. You’ll still find a few interesting Thai dishes, too, if you want to experiment a little.
In terms of quality, the Sunday Brunch at Novotel Phuket Surin Beach Resort has some tough acts to follow. Many of the top hotels around Phuket offer the same service, showcasing their finest foods. The Novotel team put up an admirable effort, with skilled chefs at work, but the fact that they intentionally made it one of the most affordable options available naturally means that the quality of the ingredients suffers a little. Perhaps the flavours won’t be as powerful or the preparations aren’t as exotic but, at 499++ baht per adult, it’s excellent value for money.
Highlights at the Sunday Brunch at Novotel Phuket Surin Beach
Unlike the brunches available at the five-star hotels in Phuket, this offering is uniquely family-friendly. This is evidently firstly in the price, which is already cheap for adults (as little as a quarter of the cost of some of the other brunches around), but is then 50 per cent cheaper for children aged 4 to 12 and free for under-4s. There’s also the Mickey Mouse plates and cutlery for the kids to enjoy.
Particularly noteworthy among the selection at the Sunday Brunch at Novotel Phuket Surin Beach Resort are the live cooking stations. You can have pasta, sushi, somtam and roti all made just for you, with the pasta and sushi particularly standing out. The bread selection is also quite remarkable, being as expansive and as organised as a library. Finally, one or two of the desserts add a little dash of fun and flourish to the meal, with the chocolate sauce injectors on the cupcakes.
Atmosphere at the Sunday Brunch at Novotel Phuket Surin Beach
While it lacks the up-market feel and refinement of many of the leading brunches in Phuket, Novotel Phuket Surin Beach Resort’s offering perfectly matches the theme of the hotel. With its waterslides, kid’s club and many other family-oriented facilities, it is best suited to those travelling with young ones. This brunch perfectly matches that attitude and atmosphere, providing a very good level of quality with none of the pretentiousness which can afflict brunches with higher price tags.
