Thai Lounge

I’ve got some great pics coming to ya this week! My mom (“Mommy”) came to visit and do some wedding stuff. So much fun!

On Friday night, I took her out to one of my favorite restaurants in Cancun (or anywhere, for that matter)… Thai Lounge. It is GORGEOUS. It’s located at Plaza La Isla in the Hotel Zone (where fiance proposed). The restaurant itself feels like you’re in the middle of a jungle, looking out over the lagoon. The food is amazing, although a bit spicy. It’s pretty expensive, but well worth the experience. I’d like to bring fiance here! Maybe to save some cash we could just have some drinks and hang out.

Here you will witness some pretty bad photography on my part. I always seem to need to take pictures at night, but I can never figure out how to do it. With flash takes away all the cool lighting ambiance pretty much anywhere. No flash lets you feel the ambiance, but things get so blurry! Anyone who knows how to do this is perfectly free to give me some pointers.

Mommy 🙂

I considered telling ya’ll to just Google Thai Lounge Cancun to see some more professional, high-quality pics, but apparently there aren’t many! Someone with photography skills needs to get on that, FAST.

I guess it’s just one of those places you have to see for yourself. Photos will never do it justice. Mommy and I had some awesome conversations and some amazing food.

    • Thanks Tiffanie! Maybe I didn’t clarify though… he proposed at Plaza la Isla, but not at this specific restaurant. It was on a bench looking out over the lagoon 🙂

      We had dinner at Outback the night he proposed, by my request. Not as romantic, but dang I love that bloomin onion.

  1. That place looks AMAZING! I love that you get your own individual hut kinda thing! That’s definitely someplace I’ll have to go someday. Looks like a blast 🙂

  2. What kind of camera are you rockin’ – shoot me an email and I’ll see what I can find for you to adjust the setting to take better night pictures. If it has the right settings, that is.

  3. No. Freaking. Way. That place is gorgeous.

    I have a hard time taking non flash photos at night too. Apparently a tripod needs to be involved!

    Thanks SO MUCH for stopping by!!!!

  4. It sounds like a great place. I love, love the private palupas!! As for taking night pictures, try using your manual setting, ISO at the highest level (mine goes to 1600), flash off. (I have a Canon Powershot).
