Bimi and Bongo: two fresh, fun ways to celebrate the tropical island life on Phuket
Twinpalms Phuket is bringing more beachside excitement to Phuket with the launch of Bimi Beach Club and Bong Rum Bar this August.
Found on the white-hot sands along Phuket’s spectacular west coast, Bimi Beach Club gives party-goers a stylish yet stripped-down spot to mingle, dance and set free their wild island spirit along the dazzling shores of Surin Beach.
Open from 10am till 10pm, Bimi will throb with the sexy sounds of Thai and International DJs spinning daily mixes on a highly diffused quality sound system. Always exceptional yet never pretentious, our setting, service and style will celebrate the Thai passion for fun and the open, welcoming beauty of its people.
Needing to cool down? Or just wanting to add some sparkle to your sun-kissed skin? Experience the thrill of the Songkran water festival any time with Bimi’s giant rain showers beckoning guests all day. Let your inhibitions melt away in the flowing water…
A relaxing repose on the sand need not lack luxurious touches. With a Bimi access pass, guests are given exclusive use of our sun beds and towels among other party perks.
The Bimi menu was inspired by the dynamism of the sea, with light beach food, both Thai and International, brimming with zest, flavour and life. Try nicoise salad, fresh sandwiches, wood-fired pizza, chicken sate and tom yum goong, topped off with an indulgent dessert such as apple tarte tatin or Thai favourite mango and sticky rice.
Along with our memorable Martinis, we serve an invigorating choice of cocktails, flowing rose, wine and champagnes, all mixed, flared and prepared by the island’s hottest bartending talents.
Bongo Rum Bar is also set to stir up the Phuket Island spirit when it opens next to Bimi.
Bongo is where Phuket’s free spirits will lounge on the sands, groove and chill all day while the sun blazes its path through the sky. Not ready to let the day slip away? Then keep sipping away while the setting sun paints the scene a rich mellow yellow. The glorious sun, sand and sea of Surin Beach have never felt so good, so easy, so free.
Looking to quench that hunger in your heart? Or is that your belly? No problem, Bongo’s small but mighty special menu can fill it all up with tasty beach fare like rum-splashed Phuket lobster, barbecued ribs or chocolate mousse infused with dark rum and vanilla.
Bongo brings to the beach Asia’s biggest collection of finely aged, quality distilled rum from around the world … scents of fresh sugar cane wafting through the salty air. Help life move along a little more smoothly with something like small-batch Caribbean style rum straight up or mixed in a groovy cocktail that’s simply Bongo-esque in flavour.
After letting the sun and salt dance on your skin by day, slip your toes into the sand and let the day roll on seamlessly into the sexy night. Bongo’s the place where Phuket island passions come to life, with laughter, music and crazy talk billowing through the balmy evening air.
Bimi and Bongo Rum Bar are the latest additions to the growing island lifestyle collection of Twinpalms Phuket Resort, which put Phuket in the global spotlight as a place for beachside fun and fashion with its landmark Surin venue, Catch Beach Club.
Both Bimi and Bongo are set to open this August. See you soon! www.bimibeachclub.com
