Furnished with hand-carved teak wood furniture and wall carvings, brought from Chaing Mai in the north of Thailand, as well as paintings by elephants from the famous Maesa Elephant Camp, Aroi-Thai has to be seen to be believed. The internationally qualified chefs combine their years of experience to create authentic Thai food, freshly prepared with locally sourced ingredients.
