Hua Hin’s leading hotels are hosting “Dine Along the Beach” feasts on the last Thursday of every month through November, starting on May 31.

The Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas, Hilton Hua Hin Resort & Spa, Hua Hin Marriott Resort & Spa, Hyatt Regency Hua Hin and Intercontinental Hua Hin Resort will have their chefs out in force preparing amazing five-course banquets on the soft sands of Hua Hin Beach.

The culinary journey begins at 5pm at the Hyatt with a starter of local Burrata cheese and smoked eggplant. Then it’s a short stroll to the InterContinental for a second starter of seared octopus with risotto, salmon roe and pea flowers.

Next, the Marriott has the first main course ready – fillet of sea bass with garlic, Parmesan and pesto. The Centara takes up the baton with Chicken Ballotine with Madeira sauce.

And dessert awaits at the Hilton – coconut pannacotta, purple sweet potato ice cream and passion-fruit sauce.

The whole affair lasts until about 9pm, affording ample time to stroll in the sand and paddle in the surf. If you’re not up for the walk, transportation is available on request.

The five-course feast costs Bt2,499-net with Monsoon Valley wine and Evian and Badoit mineral water. Only 50 people can be accommodated each evening, so book in advance at (032) 512 021.
