Located on the West coast of Phuket, along the breathtaking shores of Layan Beach, Bangtao, the sprawling venue exudes unprecedented views of the Andaman Sea.

Surrounded by luxury private estates and hotels, Nikki Beach Phuket is only a 15-20 minute drive from Phuket International Airport and a 10 minutes drive from the nearest helicopter charter & helipad.

Modeled after the same stylish and contemporary look and feel as all of the brand's locations around the world, Nikki Beach Phuket is adorned in plush, all-white sun beds, chic drapery and their trademark teepees located throughout the property.

Guests are able to spend their days and evenings indulging in refreshing cocktails, endless champagne and an extensive menu of delectable dishes featuring signature tastes and spices representative of all the countries Nikki Beach is located including delicious salads, creative sushi rolls, original seafood entrees and slow-roasted free-range rotisserie chicken.

The oceanfront beach club & restaurant includes a pool, indoor & outdoor dining options, opium beds and 4 bars. Nikki Prive, the brand's ultra-VIP lounge, is located on the 2nd floor of the main building and is able to accommodate up to 70 guests for private events, dinners & celebrations and also includes a deck that can accommodate an additional 60 guests.

''Phuket has always been on our priority list of great locations for Nikki Beach and with 5 successful years in Koh Samui, the opening of Nikki Beach Phuket is a great accomplishment for our growing brand.

''We are so proud to be opening our second location in Thailand. The beaches (in Thailand) are magnificent,'' says Jack Penrod, Founder & Owner of Nikki Beach Worldwide.

''We look forward to welcoming both our loyal and new customers to experience the amazing cuisine, service and ambiance found at all the Nikki Beach locations around the world at Nikki Beach Phuket,'' adds Bruce Hanrahan, Regional Director of Nikki Beach Thailand.

Since its conception in 1998, Nikki Beach has successfully established itself as a powerhouse destination for those seeking opulence and excellence in service in relaxing & chic atmospheres in countries such as the United States of America, France,Spain, French West Indies, Thailand, Morocco and Mexico.

It was in 2009 when Nikki Beach Worldwide originally brought its concept to Thailand with the opening of a Nikki Beach on the luxury island of Samui. In 2010, adjacent to the beach club, the brand expanded the Samui location with the opening of 16 standalone bungalows and in 2013 debuted 32 villas & suites, making it the brand's first resort in the world.

The Nikki Beach brand is known for introducing the world to the ultimate beach club concept that combines the elements of entertainment, dining, music, fashion, film and art into one - a combination that is experienced through the innovative events that take place at each location.

The events at Nikki Beach Phuket will include top-class entertainment and signature Nikki Beach themed days including the popular Grand Opening White Party on March 7, 2014 to mark Nikki Beach Phuket's official debut, the Champagne World Tour, Miami Vibes party, Brazilian Party and Welcome to St. Tropez party, among many others.

The attentive and friendly service, lavish themed-events and exceptional dining, entertainment and all-around ambiance, make Nikki Beach Phuket the most luxurious haven of choice for the world's jet-set, VIP and celebrity clientele.

Shouldn't this "story" be labelled "Advertisement"?

As the byline says, it's a 'Media Release'. Our readers can work the rest out for themselves.


Do we know if there are any plans for a Go Go onsite?

Advertisement of course, 'Media Release' at what cost? Can you do a 'Media Release' for my company?

Editor Comment:

We make a decision when we see the media release. Usually, if it's too obviously commercial, we won't run it. If there's some newsworthy element, we'll consider it. Announcements about new openings or new ideas are considered newsworthy. We reject most suggestions. But don't let that stop you, coxo. Our readers are intelligent people. They can tell when they're being sold something they don't need. I suggest you watch for other publications to tell you the same ''news'' without using the words ''media release.''


I don't care what the hell you call it, it's 1 reason, cheerful one, to return again, Thanks I would not have known about it if not for your article.

That's all we need, another expensive beach club. Layan beach is (was) a quite natural beach. Why do we allow greed to destroy Phuket and why is the local government continuing to allow it. Shades of Surin Beach. Anything happen there, NO! Just more payoffs and all is forgotten. Phuket is a beautiful island, let's take I back before it's too late.
