Chow-Friendly Veggie Hotel on the Beach in Bali or Phuket?

SimonF Feb 16, 2012 08:03 PM

I'm looking for a place that is veggie-friendly (no fish, egg is ok) in Bali or Phuket on the beach. I'm one person, and would prefer a simple eco-lodge place to a super-upscale resort hotel. I'm flexible with regard to price. I'd appreciate any thoughts and recommendations.

    If you go eco-lodge good chance they understand veggie, or if you go five star they will get it. But as Curt says much local food uses non-veggie condiments so to be safe you may need a dedicated veggie place. Most resorts in these areas are next to other resorts or areas with food stalls and cafes so it is easy to wat out. I tend to select my accomodation independent of my food - food first then sleep.

      As far as accommodations go, most don't care about your dietary habits. ;-)

        Thanks. Often for resorts, its convenient to eat where you sleep.

          Not sure how "veggie" you are.

          You can ask for "vegetarian" preparations, but they may often contain fish sauce, used like salt in SEA cuisine. There are substitutes, but these will be found only at true vegetarian eateries.

          Dries shrimp will also pop up in many dishes.
