Flavours of the harvest
Meaning ‘cultivated land’, Arva follows the southern Italian tradition of 'Cucina Del Raccolto’, and is creating exquisite dishes out of honest ingredients, grown in gardens or on farms, foraged from forest floors, or plucked fresh from the oceans. The chef's seasonal menu includes fresh pasta and risotto, along with bold, hearty piatti principali.
Rooted in community
The local community is an essential source for Arva's fresh, organic produce. Every day, Khun Somnai, a fisherman from the local village of Bangtao, brings the prime of his latest catch to Amanpuri, including snapper, soft-shell crab, mud crabs and live grouper, caught to order. Free-range organic chicken and eggs are supplied by an orphanage in Phang Nga, allowing Arva to offer sharing platters of herb-roasted chicken; whereas the produce markets of Phuket Old Town ensure a daily supply of tropical fruits, fiery chillis and fresh vegetables.
