Indulgence without guilt – guests can enjoy ethical ‘Freedom Foie Gras’ at The Nai Harn
Resplendent in extravagance, The Nai Harn, Phuket is ensuring that its guests will be able to indulge in the world’s most exclusive fois gras, without the guilt behind the notoriously cruel production. Formerly The Royal Phuket Yacht Club, The Nai Harn newly reopened in January 2016 after an extensive 18th month refurbishment. This iconic hotel is located on Thailand's best beach (as voted by TripAdvisor) and is the only resort on Phuket accepted into the prestigious Leading Hotels of the World collection, The Nai Harn is set to be Phuket's newest and greatest luxury offering this year.
Sourced from a Spanish producer who utilises farming methods which allows free-ranged geese to roam wild, without forced feeding and in line with their natural migratory cycle, this respectful technique safeguards that the geese enjoy the same quality of life as they would in complete freedom, without the farmer sacrificing on the glorious, final product. Going back to the origins of foie gras, the farmers ensure the geese are well treated with the knowledge that consumers will be rewarded with the gift of fatty livers. With the aid of this specialist foie gras production and its cutting edge techniques, The Nai Harn will be fortunate enough to be able to serve their guests this preferential product and further promote ethical foie gras to the luxury hospitality industry.
In addition to this exciting news for avid foodies, Kevin Jean Fawkes, previously from world-class Noma, has been appointed as the culinary director of The Nai Harn. Chef Fawkes brings with him a wealth of culinary stardust from Michelin starred experience in the great British kitchen of Anton Edelman at the Savoy Hotel London, to stints at cutting edge restaurants by Sir Terence Conran, Gordon Ramsay, Jason Atherton, Albert Roux and the aforementioned Noma’s legendary René Redzepi. With this background, guests can rest assured Chef Fawkes will feature dishes highlighting foie gras in the most spectacular way imaginable.
130 Rooms (all prices incl. breakfast) prices start Deluxe Ocean View Room - 10,000 THB (184.47 GBP).

Notes to Editors: THE NAI HARN offers the perfect blend of romance, adventure, indulgence and a genuine sense of heritage, perched above Thailand’s best beach*, ranged along a lush hillside at the southern tip of Phuket. Only THE NAI HARN offers dress circle seats to the greatest shown on earth – the spectacle of an Andaman sunset set against the dramatic promontory of Cape Promthep, best viewed from the four-poster day bed on your private 40sq m terrace, or from the reborn Rooftop Deck at our bucket list-worthy daily Magic Hour and Sunset Salutation Ritual. Phuket’s only hotel with a real sense of history has hosted luminaries from royals to heads of state to stars of stage and screen – where else but at THE NAI HARN can you take a luxury speedboat island hopping to James Bond Island … while staying in the suite occupied by Roger Moore or Christopher Lee during filming of The Man with the Golden Gun? Offering guest rooms at least as capacious as the generous terraces and suites best described as sublime, THE NAI HARN has been completely redesigned to maximize its exceptional vistas. Minimally elegant with lavish touches and ‘ah’ moments, this comprehensive reimagining of Phuket’s first luxury resort infuses contemporary style with a Southern Thai aesthetic, setting the scene for destination experiences informed by authenticity and local knowledge, new adventures on roads less travelled, and culinary experiences that define excellence as we seek to restore THE NAI HARN to its former glory as a not-to-be-missed dining destination. *As voted by readers of TripAdvisor, 2014.
