Coast Beach Bar & Grill

This recent Sunday we visited the Coast Beach Bar & Grill, which is located at the premises of the Centara Grand Beach Resort in Chaweng.

The Coast Beach Bar & Grill caters to a wide range of beach aficionados and offers some great beach and ocean views with a great menu and food options to boast.

At the entrance on Chaweng Beach road

This is the perfect location of spending a day on the beach, whilst having great lunch and dinner options available, without being surrounded by a party crowd but rather a more jazzy feel to it with a relaxed atmosphere.

First view of the resort on your way to Coast Beach Bar & Grill

We joined the Sunday brunch, which up till the end of this month will be held each Sunday but as of May will be offer on the first Sunday of the month. There are three different brunch options. The brunch includes Tasmanian Salmon, Alaskan King Crab, Imported Cheese & Cold cuts (my favorite), an oyster bar and a grill station with among others lamb cutlets. 
I will cover the brunch in a different post, coming soon

We went with the whole family and weren't the only ones with the same idea this weekend, couples and families alike were enjoying the sunny day and the food and drink options. We stayed all afternoon. from noon to around 5pm but you can stay on for dinner as well and enjoy the candlelit environment.
Each day of the week has a different evening arrangement as well, like a jazz evening, a wine and cheese buffet evening and a Saturday Beach BBQ.

The staff is very friendly and always there when you need them without being in your face, which is very pleasant and helpful.

The bar area

The bar at Coast carries some special drinks on offer that are exclusive of Coast Beach Bar & Grill and are only available here, including some whiskeys and Bourbons.

Ocean view

It didn't require hard work to enjoy the afternoon, eating, drinking and chatting away and before you know i, you realize that time flies when you're having fun. The children swam in the ocean and we received complimentary towels and the brunch includes also the use of other facilities of the resort, like the pool.
