From Thappraya Road at the junction with Pratumnak if you drive into the turning that leads to the much loved Sugar Hut, immediately on the right you will find Sun Sabella. Alternatively, if you are on foot you can stroll in through the impressive palatial doors and enter straight into the heart of this marvelous resort.
Sun Sabella is what Pattaya has been waiting for.
Set amongst lush green trees, this collection of beautiful buildings encompasses teak pavilions, restaurants, the Nin & Co patisserie, a purpose built jazz pit, cocktail bar, stunning water feature (very worth seeing by night) and some charming traditional Thai memorabilia.
Sun Sabella has been named in honor of the owner’s parents who were Dr Samak and Dr Isabella McKinnon Robertson. They met whilst both were studying medicine at Edinburgh University and you can see the cherished memory of both in the signs at the traditional teak pavilions.
At these beautiful pavilions you can enjoy some of the most authentic Thai food to be found in the country.
In fact these same pavilions were dismantled from their former location at PIC Kitchen in Pattaya Soi 5 and then amazingly reassembled at their new home within the grounds of the Sugar Hut resort. Once Dr Sunya had decided on this move, his sister Marisa suggested they coin a new name for the complex in memory of their parents.
Dr Samak and Dr Isabella (affectionately known to all as Ella) were therefore joined in the name ‘SABELLA’ with “SUN” added for Dr. Sunya giving the new name ‘SUN SABELLA’
As well as the mouth watering Thai dishes available at Sun Sabella, there is food and drink available for any budget. This can be enjoyed whilst sitting at the available seating outside, inside on more “Western style” dining tables and chairs or in this charming, traditional Thai style area.
Nin & Co Patisserie comes to Pattaya
Keeping the family tradition Dr Sunya’s beautiful daughter Yanin – affectionately known as Nin, brings her passion for food from Bangkok to Pattaya. This extends to the wonderful cakes she personally concocts with delicate design and beautiful embellishment. If you have a very special occasion and want something custom made her creations really are works of art. Take a look at the ninandcobake Instagram for examples
“If music be the food of love play on”
In the words of the immortal baird with all this mouth watering food to select from there must also be music and the Jazz Pit has that a plenty With not only Thomas, the resident guitarist but a whole host of visiting guest performers of world class standing who will be dropping in to entertain us with there live music.
