Initially I was not happy to see the out-of-hand development of what used to be our quiet corner of Kamala Beach, and now two years later things have only got worse!

HQ is now sandwiched between Cafe Del Mar (with loud boom, boom music!) on the south side and construction of the half-completed Intercontinental Hotel.

Consequently, we had two lots of music throughout our meal plus the jackhammer from the building site next door. Totally uncomfortable to say the least. There was just us and one other table of two in the entire place! Sad for a Friday night. We left as soon as we finished our dinner around 8pm.

The food was acceptable, although my Asian Lamb Curry was too fatty.

The staff were apologetic, and very attentive!

It’s a special spot and as much as I’m a fan of Twin Palms and GM Olivier Gibaud, I cannot recommend HQ at this point in time.

Dear Warren D,
Thank you so much for having visited during these challenging times HQ Beach Lounge and for sharing with us your observations.
I cant agree more with you that at times which we cant control HQ Beach Lounge suffer from the lack of respect from one neighbor and on the other side it is only a matter of time until construction is completed.
Dont give up, we surely won't and will continue to review our offering and know that the environment can only get better.
See you on your next visit we hope.
Until then
Olivier

Myself and my boyfriend tried this restaurant and it’s the best meal we’ve had all holiday. The food was lovely and the staff were very polite. I would definitely recommend! (The chocolate fondant dessert is a must!!!)

The restaurant is located just off the main road near the beach. The location is very nice and quite. The pizza and beef salad was very tasty. The curry was also amazing but quite hot. The service was friendly. When we went it wasn’t very busy, which was very nice for us. After dawn the place gets to dark as many big trees surround the restaurant. Also, at the moment some constructions are going on beside the restaurant which is a bit loud from time to time.

Different style beach club experience to its neighbour the cafe del mare. Bar is well designed and relaxing. Some construction happening around tbe island but this is Phuket so to be expected. No DJ playing when we arrived in the mid afternoon and the facility has no pool unlike other places. More designed for an older crowd. Quality of food and drinks though really excellent when compared to others.

Dear 566graemes,
Thank you so much for having visited HQ Beach Lounge, rather than beach club...
Indeed we strive to be different with the food and drink offering, delighted to read that you most enjoyed it.
See you again soon for more quieter quality time by the sea...
Until then
Olivier
