Mezetto Mediterranean Restaurant, GrandBlue Resort and Beachclub Mae Phim

Thailand has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, boasting crystal clear waters and white sandy beaches, and where beaches reside restaurants are also sure to be found. You get both of these, and more, at Grand Blue Resort Mae Phim.

You’re on holiday at the beach, so why leave the coastline?

Mezetto Restaurant and lounge bar at Grand Blue Resort Mae Phim offers simply sensational Mediterranean food, a well-stocked bar, and swimming pool access.

Thank us later when you’re sipping mojitos to the soundtrack of gently lapping waves.

Sip, sit and enjoy the sunset at this comfy resort and hotel and when the sun tucks behind the clouds, be sure to enjoy some tunes at the bistro/bar.
