We all know that Koh Samui, is a jaw-droppingly, mind blowingly, beautiful island with so much going on. There’s the gorgeous beaches with snow white sand, the amazing waterfalls, the buzzing night market and then there’s brunch. Yes brunch.

If you’re ever in Koh Samui, and don’t know where to hang out on a Sunday, then take a peep at Beach Republic with the “Sunday Sessions”. This Koh Samui beach club promises to give you everything a Sunday session could ever be; a brilliant buffet, tempting cocktails and intoxicating music. Indeed you can easily pass an afternoon here imbibing at the restaurant, chilling by the pool and swimming in the sea.

However, if you think that this is like the Sunday sessions that you get in Ibiza then think again. Here’s it’s all about the relaxed vibes which as far as we’re concerned, the last day of the weekend should be about. Beach Republic brunch is on from 11:30 am to 15:30 pm and if you’re not convinced already on going, then here’s 5 IDEAL reasons to savour Sunday brunch at Beach Republic, Koh Samui.

GREAT VARIETY OF FOOD

It’s no secret Thailand is a foodies paradise. You can have the best meal of your life on a street corner here. However, we don’t think there’s any shame though, in admitting to craving something not from the Thai repertoire from time to time when you’re in the country. And like all truly great buffets, the brunch one at Beach Republic has a vast spread of foods from all over the world to satisfy your cravings.

There’s just about everything you could wish for here. Think Maine lobster, Scottish salmon, Iberico ham, Fines de Claire oysters, sushi and prime roast beef. There’s even a BBQ station. Oh and if you haven’t had your fix of Thai food yet, there’s a selection of that too. Don’t worry if it sounds like a lot, the best thing about brunch is that it’s breakfast + lunch, which means you’ve got two meals’ worth of eating to do – and then some.  And if you’re craving for international food has been sated and you’re still hungry later, every Sunday from 4pm to 10pm Lamai’s long, wonderful walking street nearby comes alive with hawkers selling a huge selection of street food.

ALL THE DRINKS

Do you like prosecco? Or is a pina colada more your vibe? Well you can have whatever you want here.  Drinks range from local beer to vodka and spirits, dry and sweet wine, and water, of course. Unlike your usual prosseco brunches, there are no rules to what one can drink; it all depends on a guest’s preference. 

LIVE MUSIC DJ

Yep, there’s a DJ to entertain guests playing chill music throughout the brunch session. Once you’ve eaten, station yourself by the cool pool for some languid toe-dipping while your lunch goes down or relax on one of the loungers. Or get closer the DJ booth to really enjoy the beats -the choice is yours. 

THE BEACH 

Could there be anything better than fish so fresh that it still smells of the sea? Yes, as a matter of fact there is – to enjoy that fish right next to the beach. And that’s exactly what you can do here. Beach Republic’s Sunday sessions are held right next to the beach where you can take a dip in the sea whenever you please – however preferably after you let your food go down.

TO ENJOY THE VIBES

In an ambience of cool, chilled vibes, you will find Beach Republic. Whether your desire is to have a relaxed day with your loved one or sociable gathering with friends, this brunch will cater for you.
