Dinner and drinks with a view. 

With the hot season’s beachward migration now underway, spend a Phuket evening at Twilight Sky, a restaurant on the fourth floor of the swanky SiS Kata resort  (www.thesiskata.com).

It’s a venue made for knocking back sundowners while watching dusk do its thing on the Andaman Sea horizon. If the occasion calls for it, make the mood romantic with one of the candlelit tables. For a casual evening, grab a sofa or beanbag.

The cocktail menu of standard beachy mixes is complemented by Southern Thai fusion food like a pomelo salad with octopus (B300) and an oxtail soup (B200) served with a spicy seafood sauce.

Nearby sits untrammeled Lampi island, famous for abundant marine life and biodiversity. Flights operate on Fridays and Sundays from around B5,300/round-trip.
