Boat Bar | Naughty Dance Fun

Boat Bar and the rest of gay bars on Paradise Complex get busy around 10:30 pm. Offers two drag shows a night and drinks are reasonable prices. A fun place to be, to dance, to watch and to play about until late.

Music: Boat Bar’s DJs play live DJ who keeps the dance floor busy with cool and funky sounds until very late.

Crowd: Like all of Phuket’s gay town, Boat Bar has a total mix of tourists, professional boy, and local guys.

Dress: Casual clothing, no dress code is required for Paradise Complex.

Paradise Complex Patong is a short street where you get it all from drag shows, dancing and gogo bars, to massage parlors. Patong town is Phuket’s main tourist destination and it’s located 5 minutes walk from Bangla Road (Phuket’s biggest nightlife and entertainment spot) the area is full of gay bars and restaurants. All gay bars on Paradise Complex street host nightly shows which are free entry but guests are expected to buy at least one drink.

The general areas get busy around 10 to 11 pm and until 2 am (even 4 am depending on the crowd) with many of the bars putting on street performances to attract the guests. By midnight most of the gay bars are crowded. Boat Bar and Zag Bar are two of the most popular venues in Paradise Complex.

Passport Review

Paradise Complex Patong – Phuket’s Gay Town

Patong’s nightlife may be best known for Bangla Road but there is also a mirror-opposite part of the city at the Paradise Complex aka. Phuket’s Gay Town. It’s a short street where you get it all from drag shows, dancing and gogo bars, to massage parlors.

Music: Across the Paradise Complex bars mainstream pop is most common. Expect current chart hits and even the odd bar streaming YouTube.

Crowd: Phuket’s gay town is visited by a mix of mostly tourists, professional working men, and local guys.

Dress: For Paradise Complex casual clothing is fine. Flip tops and tank tops seem to be the uniform for most of the guests.

    Love Phuket

    Location

    Kata Beach is one of Phuket’s most popular spots, offering a quieter and more laid-back alternative to Patong and Karon. The resort is located atop a hill, offering beautiful views of (and easy access to) Kata Beach, while still feeling a bit more secluded than some of the other hotels in Kata. You can walk to Kata Noi Beach within a 15-minutes.

    If you feel like partying, both Kata and Karon have lively nightlife. If you really feel like partying, Patong’s famously gay Paradise Complex is just a 25-minute taxi ride away.

    Style & Design

    SIS stands for “Stay In Style”, so everything in the resort is designed for optimum aesthetic points. The design is futuristic and truly unique, contrasting rounded shapes with sharp angles and modern materials with the beautiful natural surroundings of the hotel. Long story short, it’s an Instagrammer’s paradise.

    Facilities

    The SIS Kata Phuket has two pools, one of which overlooks Kata Beach and the Andaman sea in spectacular fashion. The 24-hour gym is large and well-equipped with a range of cardio and weights machines, and the spa offers excellent relaxation treatments.

    Dawn To Dusk restaurant offers delicious food throughout the day in an elegant setting, while the Twilight Sky dining terrace is the place to go for dinner with a view. The SIS also features a cool cafe, swanky neon-lit bar, pool bar, and a health bar serving fresh juices and salads.

    Rooms

    The SIS has 124 rooms in a variety of sizes and styles. Even the most basic rooms come with impeccable design and good amenities, but we recommend upgrading to a room with a view. You can choose from garden, pool, or ocean view, with the latter being stunning thanks to the hotel’s elevated position. All rooms come with a balcony, but it’s the ones with the private balcony jacuzzi you want.

    Gay Phuket is a combination of tropical sandy beaches and intense gay nightlife. What’s not to love? Patong is the largest town on Phuket and home to most of the nightlife both gay and straight. Most of the gay Phuket action takes place in or near to paradise complex. Gay Phuket Pride is all you would expect from pride taking place in a tropical holiday destination. It’s colourful, eccentric, naked, toned, and fun. Of course there are plenty ripped hot guys on floats parading around town. Read all about Gay Phuket with the Gay Passport destination guide.

    HOTELS

    Why We Love It

    ♥ Wonderfully perfect for honeymooners

      Best-Gay-Honeymoon-Hotel-Renaissance-Phuket-
      Perfect-Instagram-Outdoor-Rain-Shower-Gay-Phuket-Hotel-Renaissance

      Location

      Renaissance Phuket Resort & Spa is located on Mai Khao Beach, on the quieter northern end of the island. You’re a long way away from the crazy nightlife of Patong Beach, which for many is a blessing. This is the perfect place to get away from the go-go bars and beach parties to enjoy some well-deserved pampering and relaxation.

      Ironically, the remote location makes the hotel very easy to reach: Renaissance Phuket is just a 20-minute drive from Phuket Airport, and a 3-hour drive from the southern Thai hub of Surat Thani.

      Style & Design

      Renaissance Phuket does an expert job of blending a clean, contemporary style with distinctive Thai influences. This is seen in beautiful details like the vaulted shape of the private villa roofs, reminiscent of a Thai temple, or in the lush tropical greenery surrounding the hotel pool. Even the most basic bedrooms are beautifully bright and airy, with a glass panel separating the room and bathroom for an open-plan feel.

      Facilities

      The hotel has all the hallmarks of an exceptional 5-star resort, including a lovely ocean-facing outdoor pool and a truly gorgeous day spa offering a wide range of high-end treatments.

      Fitness fanatics will love the hotel gym, which comes with a solid set of proper weightlifting equipment, as well as the many activities on offer. These include yoga, volleyball, soccer, circuit training, and pilates.

      Food options are varied and superb, from an authentic Thai restaurant to fresh nightly barbeques, international meals, and carefully crafted poolside cocktails.

      Rooms

      Renaissance Phuket offers two sizes of rooms as well as a stylish 1-bedroom suite. However, if you have the budget, it’s the private villas that you want. Each comes with a plunge pool as well as luxury touches like huge bathtubs and LCD TV’s with premium channels like ESPN and HBO. You can even opt for one with an ocean view, or for a huge 3-bedroom duplex housing up to six people.
