Restaurants & bars
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all served at** Sala Mae Nam**, the Anantara’s main restaurant. At breakfast, there’s a wide selection of buffet dishes from around the world including tropical fruit and freshly cooked dishes. At lunch and dinner, you can sit down to Thai-inspired cuisine, including street food favourites created using local produce from The Royal Projects of Thailand. This eco-conscious movement aims to improve the lives of Hill Tribe communities through organic agriculture and boost the local economy. The menu features a Lanna Northern Cuisine section which is perfect if you like to sample local flavours such as spicy sausages and crackling, shiitake mushrooms and marinated pork. For closer-to-home tastes infused with some Thai seasoning, book a dinner at Baan Dhalia. Each dish can be paired with a tipple from the restaurant’s wine cellar, just ask the resident ‘Wine Guru’ for their recommendation. For pre and post-dinner drinks and all-day dining options, head to the lodge-style Elephant Bar and Opium Terrace which has cosy indoor seating and an al fresco terrace with spellbinding views.
For a special occasion, or just because, treat yourself to an evening ‘dining by design’. You can choose from a selection of menus featuring traditional Thai cuisine or succulent seafood and sit down to dinner in a variety of locations such as the stilted platform above the elephant camp, beside a terraced rice paddy or in a romantic spot on the pier down by the river.
