Being on holiday is all about relaxing and having a good time. Whether that means lounging on the beach, hitting up some neat shopping districts or getting world-class spa treatments – your holiday is all about you! However, some times you just want to break away from the same old tourist traps and find a party atmosphere to shake things up a bit.
Experienced travelers and revelers know that Phuket has one of the best nightlife scenes in the world. In fact, the beach club scene in Phuket is known internationally as the place to see and be seen in Phuket. For this reason, you’ll absolutely find an abundance of these places catering to partiers of all ages and walks of life, offering a wide range of music genres and atmospheres.
Here’s a look at some of the best beach clubs in Phuket and an overview of what you can expect when you go.
Dream Beach Club
Dream Beach Club, formerly known as the Nikki Beach Club, is part of the famous New York Dream Club brand. Because of this, guests can expect world-class music acts each month, aside from the regular house DJ that’s on duty day and night spinning all the best R&B and jazz tunes. The party decks are outside around the pool, where you will also find lounge furniture, private cabanas, gazebos and all kinds of places for relaxing – and plenty of room for dancing. There is also an indoor club at Dream Beach Club as well. Admission prices vary, depending on the events going on at the time, but expect to pay between $30 and $60 to get in. Of course, Dream Beach Club also serves up some of the best drinks around – and food, too. You can find minimally priced cocktails here, but also on the menu are some of the most extravagant drinks you can imagine – with extravagant prices, too – up to $85 each. Dream Beach Club also offers a range of food options as well – everything from sandwiches to gold leaf encrusted burgers! Despite its beachfront location, Dream Beach Club is sort of hard to find, if you don’t know what you’re looking for. Just be sure to ask around or call ahead for directions.

Paradise Beach Club
If you’re looking for a beach club in Phuket where you can actually party with your toes in the sand, Paradise Beach Club is the spot. It is located on Paradise Beach, which is on a secluded lagoon just below Patong Beach. Even though it’s secluded and feels quite exclusive, admission prices are quite affordable, compared to other such clubs in the area. You can get either a morning or night ticket that allows you to come and go as you please, during the hours the club is open – for about $15 USD. Morning tickets are good from 0930am until about sunset. Night tickets cover from 1930p until the next morning. There are also full day tickets and special event tickets available as well. You will find everything you would expect from a beach club at Paradise Beach Club – thumping music, lots of places to chat and relax, food and lots of drinks. However, it also offers quite a bit more than other clubs in the area, too. Paradise Beach Club is more like an inclusive village that has restaurants, a night market, pharmacy, ATM, money changer and various snack and drink shops. The great thing thing about Paradise Beach Club is that it also offers kayaks, snorkeling gear, life jackets and paddle boat rentals for use along its private beach and the price of these is already included in the admission.

Insider Tips: Most of the beach clubs in Phuket attract the younger crowd. However, you can usually find all age ranges during the week. Weekends and special events are the busiest times at Phuket beach clubs and this is especially true during the peak travel seasons. As when enjoying yourself at any other club, be mindful of leaving drinks unattended and to not drink and drive. Be safe, but enjoy yourself!
