Phuket is party central and for good reason. Over the last few years, the island has evolved into a high-end beach destination with plenty of activities to keep families members of all ages happy. And what’s a beach town without beach clubs? Phuket boasts some of the best beach clubs in Thailand, giving you an array of options to choose from. 

Picturesque sunsets, endless sea views in shades of blue, and a town that refuses to sleep until the wee hours – Phuket offers all of this and more. If you want to step out of your gorgeous villa and spend a day on a daybed, gazing at the sea and sipping delicious cocktails, these 7 beach clubs are sure to hit the right note. A word of advice – reservations go a long way in avoiding inconvenience. Do ask the Elite Concierge to save you a spot in the beach club of your choice.

Baba Beach Club, set on Natai Beach with 200 metres of blissful beach frontage, should be high on your list if you’re staying at our Natai Beach villas. A haven for music lovers, this is where you can enjoy fantastic music from your daybed looking out towards a secluded beach. The decor draws inspiration from the iconic Sino-Portuguese architecture of Phuket Old Town, combined with the vivid colour palette of Shanghai Tang to create an innovative ‘Sino-Portuguese Tang’ vibe. You’ll love the beachfront pool with an edgy swim-up bar and although the club is part of a villa resort, it is open to everyone.

Top Tip: The quality of the sound system and the local and international DJs make this a go-to venue for music lovers.

2. Catch Beach Club – Bangtao Beach

Catch Beach Club in Bangtao is a favourite hangout spot for many local residents and regular visitors to Phuket. Touted as the big daddy of Phuket beach clubs, it’s family friendly and popular with travellers whose young kids are not allowed in many beach clubs (kids are allowed at Catch Beach club during the day). Enjoy tanning yourself by the infinity pool, barbeque nights every Friday and free massages on Sundays. At night, Catch Beach Club is the place to see and be seen. It has some top international DJs and some of the best local DJs, as well as fabulous shows to keep you entertained.

Top tip: Dress to impress and make sure you reserve in advance via the Elite Concierge.

3. Carpe Diem Beach Club – Bangtao

Carpe Diem Beach Club (erstwhile Blue Siam Beach Club) is located on a lovely stretch of Bangtao Beach. This is the perfect getaway for those looking to relax in the sun and sip on a few sunset cocktails by the beach. A laid back but elegant dinner awaits patrons looking for a relaxed vibe. 

Top tip: You can even rent a yacht from the club go island hopping if the club scene is not your cup of tea.

4. Xana Beach Club – Bangtao

Ideal for active travellers who can’t sit around on a sun lounger all day, Xana Beach Club offers a plethora of water sports and activities to keep you busy. With a picture-perfect backdrop on Bangtao beach, a 35 metre swim-up bar, private rooftop terrace and state-of-the-art sound system, this is one of the coolest beach clubs in Asia. Stylish cocktail functions, brunches and vibrant parties for up to 1,000 people are all part of the Xana experience.

Top Tip: Xana Beach Club’s Sunday Fun Brunch is great for families.

5. Café Del Mar – Kamala beach

Café del Mar Phuket has a grown up personality and is the perfect fit for those who are looking for something classy. An outpost of the world-famous brand originating out of Ibiza, it brings the sophisticated party atmosphere to the northern end of Kamala Beach. There are sun loungers around a pool, sea facing daybeds, and a separate open-sided lounge from where you can enjoy Phuket’s gorgeous sunsets. 

Top tip: The Sunday brunch here is one of the best on the island and a great way to recover after one of Café Del Mar’s legendary DJ nights.

6. Pine Beach Bar, Kamala Beach

Right next to Café del Mar, Pine Beach Bar is located within the Intercontinental Phuket Resort and is fast becoming a favourite with Phuket crowds. Family-friendly and upscale, Pine Beach Bar doesn’t charge a fee for sun loungers and daybeds unlike other beach clubs and you can get one for free on first-come-first-serve basis.
