Baba Nest

Top choice cocktail bar in Laem Phanwa

Engulfed by beautiful Andaman and island views and bordered by glittering reflective pools, the elegant, intimate rooftop Baba Nest lounge-bar at Sri Panwa is a truly magical spot – and one of the island's (and Thailand's) prime sunset-watching hangouts, with smartly prepared classic cocktails (500B to 1000B) and Mexican-inspired tapas (350B). Book several weeks ahead; reservations require a 2000B minimum spend.

It's on the southernmost tip of Laem Phanwa, 12km south of Phuket Town.
