Sunday used to be a day when there wasn’t much going on, a day to sleep late, take your time over breakfast and snooze by the pool. These days, Sundays are a lot more social as Phuket has more than its fair share of five-star brunches, and they all want to be the best.

Brunch has become an island tradition, the social and dining high spot of the week. It’s not just great food that’s on offer, it’s also exotic locations, live music, free-flow wine and champagne, and free use of the resorts swimming pools and other facilities.

Get your glad rags on and indulge in a sumptuous brunch spread.

Pulling in the weekly Sunday crowd at Surin Beach is the stylish Oriental Spoon Grill & Bar, located at the chic Twinpalms Phuket Resort.

A visual feast, the buffet includes all kinds of fresh seafood, there’s oysters, lobsters and Alaskan King Crab alongside scrumptuous roasted meats and platters of Japanese sushi and sashimi. Save the French cheeses and glamourous desserts for last.
