Day out at Nikki Beach, Koh Samui, Thailand
Our hosts at Baan Sijan Hotel, Simon and Janya recommended we visit Nikki Beach, and we are so glad they did, and have now visited 3 times.
Called the “Sexiest Place on Earth,” by The London Observer, Nikki Beach continues to make its mark in the hottest addresses and trendsetting locales worldwide. There are 12 around the world and Nikki Beach in Koh Samui Thailand can be found overlooking Lipa Noi beach just outside of Nathon. It is open 11am – 11pm and the beach club and restaurant at Nikki Beach Resort has become known for it’s cuisine, cocktails, and VIP experience, and most famously for its Sunday Brunch.
We were a little unsure the first time we visited, and initially felt a little out of place, however these feelings soon disappeared. It is free to go in, and you can use the facilities, however there is an expectation that you purchase something from the bar or restaurant. It certainly has the WOW factor, you are met by a member of staff who will ask you which bed you would like to use.
The Pool and Sunbeds at Nikki Beach
A bed by the edge of the pool is convenient for jumping in and out of the pool but also close to the speakers, and the music can get a bit loud. We prefer the beds towards the beach which are quieter and a great place to watch the sun go down.
The sunbeds are the most comfortable double beds we have ever experienced and pillows and towels are provided. The pool is amazing with a DJ booth belting out some great tunes. A saxophonist also performs for most of the day, which adds a great vibe to the place.
Food at Nikki Beach
We had lunch there which was superb, a new york steak sandwich, served with caramelised onions, tomatoes, cheddar and red wine jus (we do love a bit of gravy!) and a spicy thai shrimp soup. The sandwich was 380 baht (just under £8) and the soup 250 baht (approx £5), expensive in thai terms but not in Nikki Beach terms, standard of food was excellent and worth every penny.
Service at Nikki Beach
The staff are very attentive, bringing round ice cold towels to cool you down regularly. The service was excellent but persistent, the only gripe we had was that we did find them a little intrusive at times. They would ask approximately every 15 minutes if you wanted anything which after a while we found a little annoying, we would of preferred to just ask when we were ready.
Drinks at Nikki Beach
Drinks are expensive, small bottle of Singha was 180 baht (just under £4), wine was 380 baht (nearly £8) a glass, and a bottle of 75cl Evian water is 250 baht (£5). You are obviously paying for the lovely environment and experience so all in all to be expected.
One of our favourite times of the day is when the sun goes down, and this really is a great spot for enjoying the spectacular sunsets!
We thoroughly enjoyed our day at Nikki Beach and have been back 4 times since! Have you been to Nikki beach?
