The club posted a notice on its Facebook page on Saturday (Sept 5), stating: “To our Nikki Beach Friends and Family, we want to let you know that our Phuket location is currently closed.

“Please join us for love, peace and the celebration of life at our other location in Koh Samui, or any of our other ten locations around the world.”

Yet on the closure of the Phuket venue, after days of enquiries by The Phuket News, the only reply to have been received to date was the message by sent by Marketing Manager Alena Nikolaeva: “Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, Nikki Beach is currently closed. We are doing everything to resolve these matters. Please refer to Nikki Beach FB page for an official statements.”

The Phuket club’s Facebook page remains to be updated.

Meanwhile, the sudden closure has taken its toll on regular guests. One reveller told The Phuket News, “It’s a big disappointment that Nikki Beach Phuket has closed, I spent a lot of time there.

“It was a great place to spend with friends, enjoy the sunshine and listen to some great house music. I hope that it will reopen again in the future.”

According to a notice on the door it will reopen under new ownership, 8 Over 8 Company. I'm projecting local residents will be subject to more  loud thumping bass but now it will be  until the  early morning hours. At least Nikki Beach was just until early evening.

So many comments on their FB page saying how pleased we all were to hear of the closure. Very few comments in support. It is a noisy, unwanted  obscene establishment on a quiet beach. Not surprisingly all negative comments on FB have been deleted, leaving only a few people in support. Totally distorts the say of majority who loathe this place.

Unfortunately there are rumours that the venue will reopen shortly under Russian management.  Now might be the opportunity to petition against another noise nuisance?

Hooray!
Now the rest of us can enjoy the beach there within 300m of the place without having to put up with the dreadful obscenely loud music.
Anyone checked for official notices affixed outside or inside?
Hopefully the monstrosity will be demolished and restore my faith in an even handed approach to illegal development by the Thai authorities.
