JAHN – Thai Elegance
Jahn is a Thai fine-dining restaurant located in the Conrad Koh Samui Resort on the island of Koh Samui, in Thailand. This property is a one-of-a-kind resort, perched on a hill on the privileged South-western edge of the famous Thai island. It is a luxurious pool villa only resort, surrounded by lush rainforest and the almighty ocean. You can find the resort about a 45-minutes’ drive away from the Koh Samui airport, on a secluded plot of land. For more information about this unique resort that perfectly blends luxury and elegance, please consult our separate hotel review.
The Conrad Koh Samui wouldn’t be a Conrad property if gastronomy wasn’t an essential part of the experience. Indeed, this property offers a great range of restaurants and bars to fulfil even the most demanding foodie. To do so, the resort’s restaurants only use fresh local, imported and organic ingredients, prepared with respect for nature and the producers.
There are more than 6 options to choose from, but restaurant Jahn definitely is the resort’s gastronomic flagship. The restaurant already won several prices such as the ‘Overall Winner of the World Luxury Restaurant Awards 2016’ and the ‘Global Winner’ in both the Thai Cuisine and Ambience/Romantic Atmosphere sections in 2016 and 2017. Oh, and don’t worry about the remote location: the restaurant offers complimentary limousine service that picks up guests from anywhere on the island (best to call them 6 hours in advance).
Restaurant Jahn seats up to 28 diners per service and overlooks the Gulf of Thailand, offering stunning views through the floor-to-ceiling windows from each and every table in the restaurant. The restaurant is set in a warm and atmospheric interior which combines lots of wood, candle light and carefully appointed authentic Thai interior details. At sunset, the restaurant transforms into an ever-changing play of warm colours, setting the tone for an unforgettable dinner.
However, guests might tend to forget these stunning views when tasting the chef’s creations. Executive Chef Sirirat 'Ning' Sansuksup reinterprets Thai classics such as Plaa Pla Bai Bua, Tom Yam Goong or Kai Oob Fang, and gives them a contemporary look & taste, resulting in one of the island most finest dining experiences. The charming lady chef loves to work with amazing international products, too, like Wagyu Beef.
Guests have the option between a dinner à la carte, or – our recommendation – one of the tasting menus ‘Tasting of Jahn’ or ‘Journey of Jahn’ to get a stroll through the chef’s culinary universe. Our favourites? Hard to tell, but we would not leave again before sampling the famous Tom Yam Goong, the Gluay Tup, the Massaman of Wagyu Beef, and the Coconut Crème Brulee. All equally delicious! The wine pairing is highly recommended and combines classic as well as new-world wines.
A meal at JAHN is a guarantee for a culinary treat that combines authentic Thai flavours with contemporary hospitality standards. Jaw-dropping views on the ocean are combined with a table-lit setting, making this restaurant one of the most romantic places on the island of Koh Samui. And the food? Well, that is spectacular, too! Feasting on some of the best Thai dishes that combine authentic flavours with luxury ingredients and modern cooking techniques, combined with the unique setting, Jahn truly is a dining experience that one can never forget.
