Designed to showcase a mix of Spanish, Mediterranean and international cuisine, the buffet’s drawcards include slow-cooked Moroccan spiced lamb shank served with a la minute steamed delicious couscous, olive oil, dried fruit, nuts, safflower and pickled lemon.

Hot dishes include roasted spice-rubbed whole chicken with dried prunes, lamb kofta with tzatziki, and slow roasted Australian beef tenderloin with a selection of flavored mustards, gravy and blistered green chilli.  In addition to imported Manchego and artisan cheeses and a selection of cold cuts including Ibérico ham (jamón), Spanish sausage (chorizo) and chicken ham, the buffet offers a healthy Mediterranean salad bar with a selection of Spanish olive oils, mixed olives and pickles.

The dinner is topped off with desserts such as homemade Spanish and Thai pastries and ice-creams.

Available from July – September 2022, the buffet is THB 1,400 nett per person, THB 700 nett for children aged six to 12 years, and free for children aged five and younger.  Two-hour free-flow package with house wine, draft beer and soft drinks is THB 1,000 nett per person. Prices are inclusive of 10% service charge and 7% government tax.

The hotel offers a “come four, pay three” promotion, meaning four guests can attend the buffet for the price of three guests, if booked at least one week in advance with a non-refundable deposit.

The next dinner buffet will be held 29 July, 5 August, 26 August, 2 September, and 30 September 2022.
