 Afternoon Tea at Le Royal Meridien Phuket Yacht Club

Peter Hatt has been Executive Chef at Le Royal Meridien Phuket Yacht Club for four years and he continues to develop some of the most exciting food and beverage promotions found on Phuket.
His most recent project is the offer of an afternoon tea service in the Lobby Lounge of the resort which overlooks Nai Harn Beach, the Andaman Sea and far off Cape Promthep, the most southern point on Phuket.

"We are located at the far south end of the island quite far from many hotels and resorts such as the Laguna Phuket complex. But this is maybe the most beautiful region of Phuket, well worth the effort to visit either by taxi or Avis rental car," explains Peter. "A tourist can have lunch in their hotel and drive slowly south exploring the beautiful beaches along the way before arriving at Le Royal Meridien Phuket Yacht Club where we will serve a refreshing tea between 14.00 and 18.00hrs."

But Chef Peter doesn't just serve tea. What he delivers is a full menu of light snacks and pastries, coffees, traditional teas and "infusions" designed to revitalize anyone not used to the tropical heat.
The Royal Afternoon Tea includes English tea sandwiches, home made scones and oven fresh muffins served with butter, jam and marmalade or Devonshire clotted cream upon request. Also included are fruit tartlets in season, Windsor cake and choice of beverage.
Peter pays great attention to detail to ensure that his afternoon treats are tastefully presented.

"We should be able to pamper everybody's need," comments Peter. "I have a great staff in the kitchen and we work to create excitement for our guests. We want them to look forward to each meal that offers something fresh, something unexpected and something delicious."

The Afternoon Tea has Jamaican Blue Mountain coffees and a full range of Twinings teas including such favorites as Earl Grey, Ceylon Orange Pekoe and Darjeeling in addition to Japanese green tea and a variety of Chinese teas. But Peter Hatt is most excited about the collection of infusion drinks offered over tea.

"Our infusion drinks stimulate the body in very subtle yet exciting ways. We have two Chinese infusion teas, rose flower and chrysanthemum, which have no caffeine but refresh and revive anyway," details the Chef. "We also offer traditional tea sandwiches as smoked salmon with cream cheese and onion sprouts or champagne ham with mustard butter and water cress. We have brownies with vanilla bean sauce and cream brulee and almond tuille."

The Afternoon Tea menu explores new ideas on how to enjoy a late afternoon refreshment with presentations which have a sense of drama.
Chef Peter is also responsible for the upscale Regatta restaurant, home of resident Chef Andrea Accordi who makes meals that are chic and fresh cooked in an al fresco style.

There's nightly themed buffets on the Promenade restaurant which are the most extravagant food feast found on the island.
"In the past few years, new and better quality products have become available so we can create new menus which inspire, not only my kitchen staff, but our valued guests who return each year for long periods."
