Eat as much as you like: a large Phuket brunch will never be forgotten

Phuket's Best Big Bunch for Sunday Brunch

Thursday, June 18, 2009
MANY who move to Phuket in search of the good life end up working harder and longer than they'd ever imagined.

Six-day work weeks are the norm for most workers, while seven days of toil are often never enough for business owners.

The chefs of a few resort dining spots around the island have recognised the value of those precious few weekend hours, and have created Sunday brunch festivals of food and wine that are sure to fortify most for their working week ahead.

And perhaps tickle the palates of the odd tourist, for whom every day on Phuket is a Sunday.

Prices are certainly more than a dish of warm curry, ranging from 399 to 3490 baht.

With wine and use of the resort's facilities included in most brunches, those searching for a special Sunday meal are likely to find them a good-value escape and indulgence.

Phuketwan checked in with five Phuket resorts to see what they had on offer.
