An on-the-water temple dedicated to Thai dining
With a name which translates to ‘sunset’ in Thai, Sontaya has the perfect oceanside location to watch the sun go down over the Arabian Gulf and sample Thai-inspired delicacies.
Sure to impress discerning diners, Sontaya is set amongst a series of floating pavilions which offer enchanting views alongside tantalising Thai dishes.
With meticulous attention to detail, the dedicated team of chefs serve up authentic Thai favourites with aromatic twists which pack a flavour-filled punch. Using only the freshest ingredients, the chefs have created a menu fit for Thai royalty.
During the day, delicious fare and signature cocktails ensure the ambience is buoyant and cheerful. The outdoor setting is lively and the lunchtime menu offers light bites interweaved with more substantial portions.
In the evening, the energy is altogether more romantic, with the floating pools of water surrounding the dining spaces reflecting the soft lighting and the sound of the nearby ocean contributing to the mesmerising setting.
In keeping with the venue's on-water theme, the sparkling pools of water extend to the entryway, heightening the allure of this captivating venue.
On the menu, classic Thai favourites contrast innovative twists, creating a bespoke dining experience that will leave a lasting impression on anyone who has the opportunity to visit this renowned eatery.
