International in Northeastern Phuket

Elegant yet understated, one of Phuket's finest restaurants sits in glorious hilltop, sea-surrounded seclusion, 20km northeast of Phuket Town. Blue beanbags overlook the pool and sea from the pillared open-walled dining hall. The divine, inventive European-style dishes are infused with local, often-homegrown produce. Menus change regularly. Classic cocktails are given a Thai twist. Book ahead.

The seven-course Sunday brunch (1400B) is popular. Guests can laze in the turquoise-tiled pool.
