If you’re in Phuket enjoying your vacation, and you want to have a date with your partner, you might be thinking of a romantic dinner date on a beachside restaurant. You picture fine dining, share delicious food, and enjoy each other’s company.
We won’t blame you for thinking this way, as it is a simple yet effective choice. However, there may be times that things don’t go according to plan, and you don’t want to leave that up to chance. If you’re planning for a romantic dinner in Phuket, here are five tips to give you the best chance at a successful romantic date.
1 – Check the Menu
The most important aspect of a romantic dinner is the food itself. If you’re booking a pizza restaurant only to find out that your partner is lactose intolerant, you might not be in for an amazing dinner together. What you should look for in a restaurant is one that has a variety on the menu. Preferably, you’re looking for great starters and a degustation menu. Also, the price tag is as important as the food. You don’t want to be in a position where you see the prices and realize you can’t afford any of it.
Remember, romantic doesn’t equal expensive. What matters is that you satisfy your partner’s taste and book a restaurant you know they’ll love.
2 – Book Ahead of Time
In Phuket, it is normal for restaurants to be fully booked, so you must book ahead of time. If you’re on the lookout for a restaurant with the best views, it is even more important to book ahead, as other couples and vacationers would be looking to make a reservation as well. There are a few new restaurants that don’t accommodate booking either, so keep these out of your options as the chances of them being full are high.
3 – Excellent service
It is tough to know exactly how good a restaurant is without ever being there. Therefore, this tip may be hard to apply. However, there are many reviews online, especially regarding well-known restaurants. These reviews can give you a rough idea of the restaurant’s quality of service. Look for critical features and comments, and look out for any issues other customers have faced.
4 – Reaching Your Destination and Going Back
A good bottle of wine can turn a decent dinner into an extravagant and romantic one. However, getting home after dinner can be dangerous if you drank too much. In Phuket, public transportation is minimal, so you cannot rely on it. Chances are, the restaurant you’ve chosen is off the grid as well. Fortunately, services like Grab are available and are very useful. Although it can be costly at times, you will be sure that you will arrive at your accommodation safely.
5 – Have Fun
What’s the use of planning every detail of dinner, only to end up not having fun at all? At the end of the day, it is you that will either make or break the date. You planned hard for this date, and now it is time to sit back and relax! Have fun asking the chef what their favorite dishes are, and try something new!
The most significant part of any romantic date is the experience that comes with it. Make your memories of your date during your vacation in Phuket a memorable one.
