Phuket, Thailand, July 31, 2023 / TRAVELINDEX / Courtyard by Marriott Phuket Town has revealed details of Yue Restaurant & Bar, its brand-new Chinese dining destination which is set to open its doors in the third quarter of 2023, with a unique design concept inspired by the classical grace of Chinese culture and Phuket’s industrial heritage.
Phuket has been shaped by the Chinese settlers who traveled to Southern Thailand from the 16th Century to work in the tin mining trade. This “Peranakan” community thrived and the urban landscape of Phuket Town now reflects this historical influence through its architecture, temples and cuisine.
Yue, which means “happiness” in Chinese, will honor this rich heritage by bringing the joy of highly authentic Chinese dining to the heart of Phuket’s old town. Open for lunch and dinner, the restaurant’s culinary experience will celebrate the timeless culinary traditions of the Middle Kingdom. Talented chefs will focus on the flavors of Cantonese cuisine, including a selection of fresh, handcrafted dim sum and premium teas.
The dragon is an important and auspicious symbol in Chinese folklore and Yue’s interiors feature eye-catching elements that focus on the dragon dance, which is performed at many of Phuket festivals. The dance’s flowing movement is represented by Yue’s red seating, which appears to weave through the center of the restaurant, as well as in its artistic ceiling. Many of the design features are also influenced by the island’s industrial history, including statement pieces made from rock and tin.
Diners can choose from a range of seating options, from intimate tables to social booth-style seating, with a mixture of arrangements that complement the atmosphere and aesthetic. Three private dining rooms also provide exclusive options for special occasions, with elegant decorative elements that reflect the island’s unique backstory and contemporary Cantonese sophistication.
Yue will become the fourth dining venue at Courtyard by Marriott Phuket Town, each of which embraces aspects of Phuket’s diverse culture. Krua Talad Yai is a vibrant culinary marketplace that showcases authentic Southern Thai and international cuisine, Talung Lounge is a popular coffee shop by day and bar by night, and Kolae Pool Bar is an alfresco space where guests can grab light bites and cool refreshments, including tropical juices and local craft beers, overlooking the pool and Phuket Town.
Nestled on the 2nd floor of Courtyard by Marriott Phuket Town, Yue Restaurant & Bar is set to become a popular place to dine and unwind for hotel guests and local residents alike.
