We regret to announce that Nikki Beach Phuket has closed
Nikki Beach Phuket is a chic beach club set right on the tranquil and rather undeveloped Layan Beach (the northern end of Bangtao Beach on Phuket’s west coast). The venue has an ultra-modern touch with its white theme and modern, linear design. It is the brand’s second beach club in Thailand and the tenth location to open across the world.
The Nikki Beach concept is a combination of dining, music, fashion, film and art in one stunning coastal location. Daily live shows with dancers, fire shows and performances (daily during high season, weekly during low season), and top-class innovative artistic events and themed-days make Nikki Beach Phuket the ultimate beach club on Phuket Island. Regarding its cuisine, Nikki Beach serves top-of-the-range international fusion cuisine featuring the favourite dishes created in – and inspired by – each of its other branches’ locations around the world.
As a long-established and internationally recognised brand (the first Nikki Beach Club opened in Miami in 1998) Nikki Beach can mostly be considered as the daddy of all beach clubs as we know them nowadays: the blending of outstanding beach location, stylish settings, trendy entertainment and fine dining truly created a new concept.
In Phuket, the venue’s layout features a two-storey building and a large open-air terrace with a free-form swimming pool in its central area. Two thatch-roofed bars flank the pool which has a wooden bridge in the middle. Large sun-beds and sun-loungers are displayed all around the terrace which also features palm trees. Inside, the large downstairs dining room seats up to 100 and is the perfect place to escape the heat at lunch time; upstairs, the long and narrow side-opened dining room and its al fresco terrace offer a superb view over Nikki Beach’s compound and beyond to the Andaman Sea, in addition to a daily spectacular natural exhibition: the sunset.
Nikki Beach Phuket has two different menus for lunch and dinner. The lunch menu features a great choice of beach club classics revisited by the talented Chef; for instance the Miami Beach Caesar Salad (340 baht) is topped with Tequila-lime marinated chicken breast; the lunch menu also features raw bar and sushi sections. The dinner menu is mostly à la carte, with a set-menu for two at 3,200 baht featuring fine de Claire oysters, house-made ravioli, tagliata di manzo, and house-made, exotic fruit macarons; the favourite dish for a group or family dinner remains the Nikki’s Famous Sushi Boat at 6,500 baht which can satisfy up to eight persons.
A sun-bed for up to four people is charged at 5,000 baht including one bottle of liquor or wine; a sun-lounger is charged at 1,500 baht including one bottle of water. Summing up, Nikki Beach Phuket is a hip and trendy venue that indeed comes at a certain price yet delivers the goods in style. Their 'Amazing Sunday Brunch' (1,700 baht per person plus drinks) is also a very looked-after event in Phuket.
