Just a few steps off the beaten track from Witthayu Road, what lies hidden out of sight is actually an oasis of wholesomeness. It is known as the Mövenpick BDMS Wellness Resort Bangkok.
Weaving together a space for indulgent vacation and good health, Mövenpick BDMS offers five-starred stays and services along with on-site wellness programs and a wealth of multi-cuisine dishes prepared from organic and nutrient-rich ingredients at Tamarind Natural Dining Restaurant.
Set by the forest-like garden, Tamarind brings out nourishing fare that look as plentiful as its surroundings. It is famed for its terrific Friday Night Seafood on Ice and Sunday Brunch, yet the venue is also noteworthy for their vibrant international a la carte menu, spanning Thai, European, Japanese, and more.
Recently, we got a chance to check out Tamarind Natural Dining Restaurant and experienced some of the best dining options the venue has to offer. Scroll down to see why all you fitness buffs should head there next.
What’s the best way to spend your Sunday if not to brunch away at arguably the most healthy brunch spot in town? Whilst Tamarind keeps on the belief that there’s no such thing as too much meat — evidenced in their Sunday food stations brimmed with Kobe beef, cold cuts, short ribs, grilled seafood, and sashimi — the restaurant wows on serving pristine, carefully-selected foodstuffs, with over half of the food served being organic or low in calories and fat. The guilty pleasure you usually get from indulging in a typical Sunday brunch? Cut it in half here. For those who aim for healthier alternatives, this one should be your move. Another plus is that all diners will get access to the resort’s swimming pool, just in case you need a workout sesh to cap off the fabulous weekend meal.
Price: THB 2,500 ++ per person for food only, and an addition of THB 888++ for free-flow alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks.
Friday Night Seafood On Ice
Friday is a godsend but make it even merrier with Friday Night Seafood On Ice packed with a wealth of seafood along with a side section of healthy gourmet bites and desserts. Whether you crave Irish Oysters, New Zealand mussels, Alaskan king crab or Hokkaido scallops, Tamarind has all the seafood caught from different parts of the world to offer on to your plate.
Price: THB 1,500++ per person and an addition of THB 888++ for free-flow alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks.
A La Carte Menu
No time for a buffet? Tuck into stellar dishes from Tamarind’s a la carte menu. The Quinoa Pomelo Salad offers a medley of bright and acidic flavours whilst the Lemongrass Chicken offers a herbal kick and heartiness.
Seafood eaters should also take delight in the Cured Tuna, but for a more pleasurable meal, opt for the naughty yet healthier version of Veal Zurichoise with Roesti which offers full-on succulency although its original calorie has been reduced in half.
