Dream Beach Club is a stylish, laid-back place to relax and party right on Layan Beach. Part of the world-renowned Dream brand from New York City, it is one of very few clubs in Phuket which is right by the sand and is one of the largest clubs of its kind in the whole of Thailand, featuring two swimming pools, four bars and over 100 comfortable sun loungers.
Replacing the once famous Nikki Beach Club at the very northern extreme of Bangtao Beach, Dream opened in December 2015 after the site had undergone quite significant renovations. While it still targets the party crowd, the atmosphere is much more relaxed. The music selection played by the resident DJ – who is positioned above the swim-up bar in one of the pools – is mostly smooth R&B, jazz and chill-out tracks. Read More...

Serving top-notch Royal Thai cuisine from all around Thailand, the food is as impressive as the settings. The perfect outlet for a romantic dinner, Old Siam Restaurant should not be missed if you are looking for sampling genuine Thai cuisine in an idyllic environment. Read More...
