I've never seen anything like this in my whole life...a floating dining experience in the Gulf of Thailand with incredible food and even more incredible service. My partner and I went in May 2014, and the nighttime breeze was just right. There were no others the night we did this, so we had the whole pier to ourselves, and the lighting and background music (from the floating bar nearby) was just right--modern, hip, and sophisticated--for my surprise proposal to my partner. The manager and staff were incredible, helping me "plot" the proposal, which involved champagne upgrade to Moet Imperial, the engagement ring hidden inside a special dessert (in addition to the dessert platter that came with the meal), a bouquet of red roses which was delivered to our table with my card, a Thai lantern sending off experience after our main course...and all of this free of charge. The best part of the whole experience was the personalized service we received from both the Food and Beverage Manager (who I could feel was just as excited as I was to make this happen!) and the service attendant (who helped me improvise throughout the night, to make sure my partner did not suspect a thing until the very last moment). And the food was excellent too! We had the Thai course, and each of the dishes were meticulously prepared in a way that fused Thai flavors with Asian tastes that felt unique and special for us (we are Asian and Asian-American). The dinner experience we had at Ocean Pier was truly a once in a lifetime experience, and was the perfect start to our life together...I could not ask for anything more. And when we got to our room after dinner, we were surprised to see two 'towel elephants' (bath towels shaped to resemble elephants) on our bed, with their trunks touching, encased by red flower petals in the shape of a heart...this was not requested by me and the staff just went a step further to make our night an unforgettable one. All stars were aligned for us that night, and I will be forever grateful to the staff at Le Meridien! Thank you!!!
