Baba Nest is one of the best places to chill out as the sun sets. It's located within Phuket’s exclusive and family-run Sri Panwa Phuket resort. Head up to the rooftop for a bird’s-eye view of the sparkling Andaman Sea and the southeastern part of Phuket. Settle down and lie back on a large and plump cushion, drink in hand, and enjoy the 270-degree ocean views.

    The rooftop terrace is surrounded by a narrow infinity-edge pool, creating the illusion of the roof simply dropping away and merging with the surrounding sky. The cosy ambience really does make it feel as though you are in a nest, perched high above the world below. Watch as the sky changes from bright blue through shades of flaming red, burnt orange, and dusky pink, and the glow of the sun gradually disappears over the water as night falls.

    A great place to start your evening, Baba’s Nest Phuket may only be open for a few hours each day, but that’s plenty of time to put you in the mood for romance and adventure. While the exclusive bar is open to people who are not staying at the resort, do make sure you make an advance reservation as there is limited capacity up in the clouds.

    There's no entrance charge to Sri Panwa’s rooftop bar, but there are minimum spending limits – 500 baht per person for residents and 1,000 baht per person for outside guests. Meeting this requirement won’t be hard with 13 pages of drinks to choose from on the menu! Feeling peckish? You can also enjoy a selection of Mexican tapas for reasonable prices.
