Café del Mar

Lounge in Hat Kamala

Ibiza's world-famous, original sunset-gazing brand brings its signature glam-chillout vibe to Phuket with this bold, distressed-concrete beach club on northern Hat Kamala. Hot-orange umbrellas and white-chic daybeds are strung around a gleaming pool; a multitiered terrace hosts DJ sessions and Sunday brunches (from 1860B). Cold-meats platters, tiger-prawn pastas and massaman curries mingle on the world-wandering menu (290B to 900B).

It's popular with well-heeled Phuketians and local expats, as well as party-seeking visitors. Daybed bookings (including food and drink) cost around 1000B in low season and 4000B in high season.
