On the popular holiday island destination of Samui, a hidden passage was recently discovered at a boutique resort on Chaweng beach, and will soon be unveiled to the public. The passage will provide a unique experience for visitors arriving for dinner at Poppies Restaurant.
Until now, the 50-meter long underground passage (built 22 years ago in order to hide resort deliveries) has remained a secret. The tunnel was designed to maintain a peaceful environment for the cottage guests above ground.
"The Poppies experience is all about the details," said James Mc Manaman, General Manager at Poppies Samui. "The Hidden Passage demonstrates the commitment of the owners to the guest experience, and I believe it is time to share this secret with the world."
The Hidden Passage will be the main entrance for arriving dinner guests at Poppies. While being escorted through the passage, guests will be introduced to the history of Poppies which began on Bali 44 years ago.
Local artists have painted canvas illustrations hung on the tunnel walls, inspired by photographs taken during construction and of key milestone events at Poppies Bali and Poppies Samui.
The Hidden Passage will be open nightly starting June 1st, 2017. Access to the Hidden Passage is complimentary for guests with dinner reservations.
Poppies Restaurant is well established as one of the premier restaurants on Samui. The attached Seaside Cottages are rated #1 on Koh Samui and in the top 25 of all resorts in Thailand by Trip Advisor.
