The Royal Cliff Hotels Group again triumphs to an outstanding achievement by receiving the “Best of Award of Excellence” for five (5) of its remarkable restaurants from the Wine Spectator Magazine New York for another consecutive year.

The Royal Cliff Hotels Group has astonishingly maintained its stand as the only property in the world to have received five such awards within one calendar year, and  this is undoubtedly recognized as a ‘World Record’ for such a significant victory.

With eleven of the most best known restaurants, it is rightfully appropriate that five of these restaurants are hailed as the world’s best by many wine enthusiast, winemakers and wine journalists from around the globe. The five proud achievers are : Royal Grill Room & Wine Cellar – Excellence & Heritage, Rossini – The Godfather’s Favourite, Chrysanthemum – Dynasty Chinese Cuisine, Caprice – A Taste of Riviera and Larn Thong – Authentic Thai Traditions; each of these restaurants are unique in the repertoire of cuisines served, the excellent wine list and indisputably for the complementary hospitality and service. 

Wine Spectator’s Restaurant Wine List Awards recognize restaurants whose wine lists offer interesting selections, are appropriate to their cuisine and are pleasing to a range of wine enthusiasts. The awards also recognize the inclusion of vintage and appellations for all selections of wines, including those which are available by the glass; and these lists ideally offer 400 or more selections, along with superior presentation, and display either vintage depth, with several vertical offerings of top wines, or excellent breadth across several wine regions. The New York’s Wine Spectator’s judging panel of wine experts and editors have the hand in picking the best restaurants deserving of these prestigious acknowledgements.

An accomplishment of this status most definitely called for a celebratory toast amongst the top executives and the food & beverage associates of this eminent 5-star hotel group with the congratulatory honour led by Royal Cliff Hotels Group’s Managing Director, Mrs. Panga Vathanakul.

Situated on a private parkland estate overlooking the stunning Gulf of Thailand, the Royal Cliff Hotels Group offers the perfect beachfront setting with traditional and modern Thai style furnishings, extraordinary service and the ambience of absolute luxury.
