IBIZA FEELING ON PHUKET
SINCE MARCH 2018, THAILAND’S LARGEST ISLAND HAS ONE MORE ATTRACTION – AT LEAST ON KAMALA BEACH. BECAUSE SPAIN’S MOST LEGENDARY BEACH BAR HAS OPENED THERE

Almost everyone has heard of the Café del Mar label, famous for its chilled-out soul house compilations, which are now available worldwide on CD or as downloads. The cool tunes have been played since June 1980 in a small bar in Sant Antoni de Portmany, which became the ultimate attraction for beach people, backpackers and hippies due to its music and its ideal location directly on the seashore of the “Cala des Moro” bay on Ibiza.

For almost 17 years – until 1997 – the then resident DJ José Padilla was responsible for the mix, and later his successor Bruno Lepetre, who gradually added the tracks of famous guest musicians.

To this day, Ibiza visitors gather on the terrace and rocks in front of Café del Mar just before sunset during the summer season to witness the legendary “Ibiza Sunset” – lulled by trance hits. In winter, the venue on Spain’s island is closed…

… but not on the island where it’s summer all year round: namely on Phuket.

The “Grand Opening” was on March 17, 2018 and thus this location now competes with the “Catch Club” on Bang Tao Beach – until now the undisputed number 1 on Phuket.
GRAND OPENING IN KAMALA

For a long time now, the former “café” has not just been a place to drink coffee, but a veritable beach club with a casual lounge atmosphere, where you are guaranteed to see the prettiest people on the island splashing around in the pool or sipping cocktails.

Many girls even dress in the typical hip “Ibiza look”, which undoubtedly pleases many an eye (see photo on the right…).

Fortunately, it’s not particularly “shi shi” as in many other clubs – such as the expensive “Nikki Beach” on Koh Samui. Everyone who wants to relax and enjoy a little entertainment is welcome in this beach hut furnished with thatched roof and bamboo. The surprise is more the “inside life” – carefully styled with comfy sofas, soft cushions and a huge bar as the centerpiece.

The good news: you don’t have to rent a fancy pool bed or a day package at the “Café del Mar Beachclub” by any means (although that option is available, of course!), but can simply take a seat in the large restaurant and feast to your heart’s content in a relaxed way.

Friday – Sunday FROM 11:00 – 2:00 AM…
Especially recommended is the Sunday brunch (“Brunch me up”), or a light lunch with tapas and delicious salads. If you love parties, come here around 6pm and enjoy a sundowner overlooking Kamala Beach, a candlelit dinner or the fire show later in the evening. The regular beach events can be found on the website (see info box).

One thing you can definitely count on: there’s always cool music, sometimes even spiced up with live saxophones.

For example the piece “Sunset at the Café del Mar” by Tabula Rasa, or “Sundance” by Sun Electric – both can be heard in the original soundtrack in the album – Volume 1 (Uno) – from 1994…!
