Private dining is a highlight for many guests at Veyla Natai Residences. The villas have spacious and modern kitchens for those who wish to self-cater, although we reckon you’d prefer to sit back and enjoy the culinary skills of a personal chef who is available to prepare every meal on request. Daily continental or Asian breakfast is included in the villa rate. For lunch or dinner there is a good variety of Thai cuisine and western dishes available from the villa’s suggested menu. Meals can be tailored to guests’ tastes and discussed in advance with the chef and Villa Manager in case of dietary restrictions. Having a personal chef prepare your meals is a wonderful chance to experience the explosion of flavours that Thai cuisine is so famous for. Indulge in fresh local favourites such as goong sarong (prawns wrapped in deep fried noodles), or allow your personal chef to work his culinary magic on fish plucked directly from the Andaman Sea, purchased from local fishermen. The chef oversees the buying of provisions for all meals. Groceries are billed to guests at market price plus a 20% handling fee and a government tax, with a minimum shopping fee of THB 750. The villa staff will keep the receipts for reference at the end of stay.
