Lucky us! Phuket is going to be the first destination in Asia for this world-class entertainment project.
Palazzo Theatre & Restaurant is the name for this high level dinner-show, well known in Europe. But now I’m very pleased to tell you that we don’t have to fly that far or seek a chance while traveling to Amsterdam, Munich or Vienna for the show. You can now enjoy it here, since Australian Vladislav Bond brought it right to your feet! For travelers, this could be a better choice for a night out than a nightclub or shopping you started to get used to.
Phuket Palazzo’s ‘Mirror Palace’ is tucked away in peaceful surroundings, on the way to Kathu Waterfall, just a few minutes away from Central Festival Phuket. The marvelous look and atmosphere of an antique marquee hints at something thrilling inside. Embellishing at the facade are genuine hand-paintings by popular artists.
Inside are a cozy cluster of dining tables set in charming misty candle light. In the center of the palace, embraced by the crowd, is a show podium that is really close to the top view table – just reach out. The reflections of a thousand twinkling candles in many mahogany framed mirrors help get us in the mood for the amazing show. The ambience and aroma time-warp us to a long-lost world all night long – perfectly established in a luxurious nostalgic ‘Jewelry Box’ Theatre with just 250 seats.
Complementing the atmosphere in an unforgettable experience is also the food. Here, their five courses of Mediterranean cuisine with an Asian touch are composed by the team of renowned Chef Maya Noosawat and Richard Marks. The menu comprises Lobster Bisque with Cognac, Beef Carpaccio & Japanese Caviar, Prawn & Scallop Double Act, Duck Wellington with Pineapple Sauce and Cream Cheese dessert with Tropical Fruit & Honey Cone: a big feast and of course delightful dining experience.
Unlike other shows, there is no clear separation set between dining and entertainment. We can let our heart flow with the rhythm of the performances that sometimes surpassed the boundary to our seats, while we easily find pleasure with the meal as every dish is served in a non-traditional artistic way. Show after show gradually creates bigger smiles, laughter and joy for us. They took our concept of time without knowing it. Whether it was the acrobatics, dancing, juggling, clowning and even opera singing, they are all professional, creative and mindful acts, so I didn’t regret spending money and time. Three and a half hours was a time of happiness we received from the international artists.
It was the team’s talent, artistry and dedication that showed through the performance, eventually touching my heart. It was a simply beautiful night that gave me a favourable feeling. After a grand premier on 30 October 2010. Phuket Palazzo will open daily except Monday which is reserved for classical music concerts.
