Catch Beach Club is a high-quality bar, restaurant and lounge spot right on the beautiful Bangtao Beach. With a superb beachfront location, excellent food and drinks and great music, it is one of the top chill-out spots throughout the day and a popular party venue at night. Belonging to the same brand as Palm Seaside, HQ Beach Lounge and Twinpalms Phuket, quality and class are absolutely assured.
A well-established name in Phuket, Catch gained its notoriety on Surin Beach, but moved to the southern end of Bangtao, taking over the premises of Bliss Beach Club. After extensive refurbishment, they reopened on Christmas Eve 2016 and rapidly reaffirmed their reputation as one of the best beach clubs on the island. Now boasting the unmistakable Catch style, you will find indoor and outdoor dining areas, a large canopy-covered bar, sun loungers, a small splash pool and a selection of poolside salas.
The food menu at Catch Beach Club offers a range of ala carte dishes from 11:00 to 16:30, with a snack menu available at other times. Top choices include the signature Catch Beach Salad (containing crab meat, asparagus, avocado, fish roe and French dressing – 350-450 baht) and the rotisserie chicken marinated in a Thai-style sauce (490 baht). There’s also a good selection of Japanese, Italian and Thai dishes available, among others. The beach barbecue buffet every Tuesday and Friday (1,500++ baht per person for food only, 750++ baht for children under 12) is also worth trying, offering a varied spread of high-quality food.
The funky back-lit drinks menu is no less impressive, boasting a broad range of top-shelf spirits, liquors, beers and champagnes. At the bottom end of the price spectrum, a bottle of local beer costs 130 baht. There’s also a choice of signature and classic cocktails, available by the glass or by the jug. The light and fruity Catch Beach (containing rum, blue Curacao, Malibu, pineapple and lime) costs 320 baht while a jug of Long Island Iced Tea will set you back 1,190 baht.
Naturally, the major attraction at Catch Beach Club Phuket is the availability of sun loungers and salas on the sand. They come with a free towel and are right at the back of the beach, in the shade of the casuarina trees and about 30 or 40 metres from the sea. While it costs 2,000 baht to use either a lounger or a sala, that money is counted as credit on food and drinks. Beach massages are available from 500 baht per hour, but this doesn’t use any of your credit. If you just want to drink and dine, there’s no entrance fee.
In the evenings, the club really comes to life, becoming one of the more sophisticated night spots in Phuket. House and guest DJs play great chill-out, nu-disco and techno tunes and, even though it’s not a small venue, it can easily get packed on a big party night. One of the classiest beach clubs in Phuket, it is widely regarded as a must-visit.
