As health conscious as we may be, there’s a tendency to fall off the wagon when we travel. It needn’t be so. When you stay at an elite haven, you can continue your lifestyle and eating habits without any change. Your personal chef can whip up delicious and healthy meals cooked to taste. And when you wish to step out, there are a host of healthier options out there. We have rounded up our favourite healthy restaurants in Phuket and Koh Samui.

There are some restaurants on this list that offer farm-to-table dining. Meanwhile, others may have a great choice of food with some healthy options, and most make sure they don’t use products that use pesticides and preservatives. Choose well and you could have a healthy and downright delectable meal at one of these on your next trip. 

Healthy Restaurants in Phuket 


PRU, earlier located within the five-star Trisara Resort, and now found at its new location just adjacent to the resort, is a Phuket legend. Close to Naithon Beach, this is a place where the wild forest meets the sea on your plate. PRU’s meals tell a story, drawing out subtle and bold flavours from the herbs, flowers, plants, and roots that grow wild in their own garden. They say their culinary style is founded on western tradition and influenced by the exotic, and local regional cuisine. PRU attempts to elevate farm-to-table cooking to a new level. They use nature’s gifts from their own farm and do their part to give back, ensuring that life’s cycle continues to blossom.

Private In-villa Chef

The chefs are more than happy to take you along to the local farmer’s market where you can meet the producers and select the product that you want. There is always a huge choice of local fruits and vegetables available. Our highly trained chefs will be on hand to explain what they are and what they can be used for. Vibrant colours and happy faces at the markets are truly an experience not to be missed.

Once back at the villa let your private chef take care of the rest. Fresh, local, sustainable, raw, vegan, vegetarian, healthy and of course, the most important thing when it comes to food, tasty.
