This is a unique Samui experience: Spirit House was dismantled and transported from Ayuthaya in central Thailand to Koh Samui some years back. To dine or even to pay a visit here is akin to stepping 100 years back in time as Spirit House is constructed out of brick and teakwood with wait staff dressed in period costumes.
In fact, Spirit House comprises several buildings and is eerily reminiscent of a Thai village, complete with a chedi and a central temple. The atmosphere here is about as Thai as you can get, with bird of paradise plants, low lighting and soft background music. Upstairs is a banquet room that hosts Thai dancers at dinner time.

As for the food, it’s also genuine Thai except for areas in which innovativeness is called for, such as using high-quality foreign fillet steak beef in the restaurant’s massaman curry instead of the traditional but tough buffalo.
A practical suggestion is to order a set menu to best appreciate just what’s on offer here. Spirit House also conducts Thai cooking classes and has a spa centre.
