Xana Beach Club is one of the few beach clubs that still peppers the coastline of Phuket, a cool place to spend an entire day on the beautiful sandy of Bang Tao Beach. The concept is to offer the ultimate lazy experience, starting from a laid back afternoon in the swimming pool or the clear waters of the Andaman sea (during high season of course), eat on the beach and continue to some party until late at night.
Set right on the beach right in front of the Angsana Laguna Phuket Resort, this upmarket beach club is part of the emerging new face of Phuket where wealthier people can enjoy beautifully designed venues, a place for those for whom a plain beach chair is just not enough. And there is no doubt that a great way to escape the heat of the day is to relax in one of their designer water beds placed directly in the shallow part of the 35 meter long swimming pool. Really tempting, unless your neighbour has loud kids, which unfortunately happened when I visited. Nevertheless, with some well selected chill out music in the background, it’s great to be able to walk from the sea into the pool.
Later on, slowly drag yourself out of your waterbed into the very comfortable round sofas disseminated on the soft sand facing the sea to enjoy Phuket famous sunsets with a cocktail in hand, just the way holidays are supposed to be spent (assuming there is a sunset of course). Food is available all day but I didn’t get a chance to try it this time, but their cocktail selection and wine collection is large enough to keep you happy all day. With their massive sound system, Xana Beach Club also hosts occasional parties with international DJ’s (but not on daily or regular basis).
