It may not be a nightclub, but no review of Phuket’s nightlife would be complete without a mention of the excellent (although pricey!) Nikki Beach. This is a place where you can enjoy a champagne for breakfast and not feel the slightest bit of embarrassment, because chances are half the other guests will be doing exactly the same thing!
On my last visit to Phuket, I had a great routine whereby I would go party at some of the better clubs in town by night, and then spend the next day recovering by the pool at Nikki Beach with a nice cocktail to wash away the effects of my hangover. Indeed, you’ll find a bunch of people engaging in similar behavior here. What I also love a lot about Nikki is their selection of delicious food – Sunday brunch here has a reputation for being the best in town, and it’s certainly a great way to refuel after spending a night on the dance floor at White Room. The only criticism I could raise about Nikki Beach is that the prices are pretty exorbitant – but then again, you won’t find many other venues in Phuket just like it.
One other tip to consider, if you are still quite drunk from the previous nights fun it’s not a great idea to go for a swim. I wish someone had warned the bloke on my last visit about that before he decided to take a dip – and then proceeded to evacuate the pool after he chundered everywhere!
