Treepod Dining

Treepod Dining

The free spirited nature of childhood was our inspiration for the Treepod. That desire to climb high up into a leafy canopy and find shelter amidst a simple wooden construction where imagination soared and dreams were born.
Our unique Treepod Dining experience invites you to take fine dining to new heights. Comfortably seated in a bamboo pod, we gently hoist you high up into the tropical foliage of Koh Kood’s ancient rainforest. Gaze out across the boulder-covered shoreline dancing with gentle waves, as you savour gourmet delights and your chosen wines, delivered via the zip-line acrobatics of your personal waiter.

Dine in the dark

Dine in the dark

The buzz: Dark dining has been a popular trend in Switzerland (since 1998), Paris, and Berlin before spreading to major cities in Europe and the USA. This fine-dining experience is about depriving you of your sense of sight in order to heighten your other five senses. You choose between meat, seafood or vegetarian—and get no more details past that—and then step into complete darkness.

The décor: Utter darkness. Visually-impaired staff serve as your personal guides and waiters for the evening, leading you to your table and helping you feel around for the plates of food and drinks.
The food:: As we said, you don’t know what you’re eating, but that’s half the fun: “That must be salad, and could this be salmon?” At times, we got it completely wrong as we found out on the way out, when you can actually see the beautifully-presented food. The chef rotates the menu so that even repeat customers will have fresh experiences. The four-course cyclinical set menu is B1420 per person, which could be Thai, Western, or even vegetarian.
Crowd: You can’t see them, but DID – Dine in the Dark attracts Bangkok’s hisos and young professionals looking for anything but an average fine-dining evening. Ruthie Napier
