Everybody knows the Swiss are famous for their Muesli right?
Well there's a lot more than just tasty Muesli at the new Mövenpick Siam Hotel Pattaya situated on the beach side of Sukhumvit Road heading South at 55 Moo 2 Na Jomtien, Sattahip, Chonburi, Pattaya or a hundred metres or so after Mimosa Pattaya. The building is metallic and highly distinctive so it's a little hard to miss.
It's a brand new hotel so they're still finishing some of the residences and pool villas that are part of the Movenpick Siam's offering but the hotel and restaurants are already operating in typical Swiss fashion of precision, quality and presentation.
I arrived early around 7.50 am to the all day and evening restaurant Twist which is on the ground floor. It was quiet and the breakfast buffet spread was immaculately laid out so I sat down somewhere comfortable and was introduced to menu recommendations by the friendly and welcoming staff.
A charming waiter recommended I commence with the homemade Yoghurts, and so I sauntered over to the chill cabinet to take a look.
I decided to try two as I assumed they would be light and healthy. I chose the homemade Chia and Swiss Blueberry though there were many more options. My next course I aimed to sample the freshly baked bread and salamis, cheese and salmon although the bread offering is equally enjoyed with the homemade peanut butter, homemade jam and even homemade Nutella. These hand made artisanal offerings by Mövenpick Siam Hotel Pattaya are a sheer delight for the epicurious to enjoy tasting.
My palate suitably aroused I ventured to the omelet station and created a classic English breakfast of baked beans, sausages, potatoes, mixed stuffing omelet and rashers of bacon. The sausages were possibly the tastiest I've tried in Pattaya and Jomtien. The meat had a freshly ground taste and a engaging complex flavour with wonderful texture. If you consider yourself a cooked breakfast aficionado I urge you to check out Mövenpick Siam Hotel Pattaya's breakfast sausages. They are tip top tasty and I noticed the bacon was also available in both crispy and soft for the discerning enthusiast.
In the background next to the fork is a small Cilantro Detox Shot which was kindly offered as a free bonus during the main course. That made me feel good about myself while tucking into a hearty breakfast of champions.
Each of the buffet stations is laid out elegantly with use of wood, granite and slate textures that really enhance the presentation of the food.
Naturally there's an Asian offering catering to more local customers.
These home made and bite sized bakery offerings were a lovely sweet climax at the end of the breakfast. I was able to taste all of them without feeling to much like a glutton.
After an extraordinary and memorable breakfast that left me floating on flavours, relaxed surroundings, appetising aromas and kindly service I took a stroll around the grounds towards the beach to take in the hotel grounds including the patio breakfast area below.
As a Swiss brand Mövenpick Siam Hotel Pattaya have a strong connection to nature and this is being nurtured in real life through the gardens and hotel grounds.
This would make a great place for a wedding or banquet style party.
I had wonderful breakfast and introduction to the Mövenpick Siam Hotel Pattaya. The Food & Beverage Director Mr Adel Mojarrad took the time out to tell me of the exciting plans of the hotel and how they approach their selection of ingredients, preparation, cooking and passion for providing the best food Mövenpick Siam can. I have to agree and look forward to trying out their Tapas at La Costa Poolside dining restaurant and the T55 New York Grill Room.
The Price of the Breakfast Buffet is 800++
