assigned numerous interior projects throughout
the Kingdom - an impressive collection
of ventures which spans boutique hotels,
villas, bars, nightclubs, shops and homes,
a group of talented designers decided
to serve their own passion for their love
of old Phuket Town.
This is when they found the shop house,
No. 16, Rassada Road which was to be the
catalyst for The XVI , Bed & Breakfast,
Cafe' and Bar, soon to be know collectively
as ‘The Taste’ Phuket.
The XVI initially started with two guest
rooms located on the second floor and
a cocktail bar with house DJ’s spinning
funky house, chill out and lounge at ground
level. Supremely successful, visitors
from all over enjoyed this new sophisticated
style of partying, until then never experienced
on the island of Phuket.
Resident DJ’s spinning vinyl, patrons
partying till 1 or 2 with the DJ’s, their
friends and other happy revelers. Nightly
fun was had by all! As a result of this
success, they expanded into an extra shop
house and made ten more rooms to invite
more guests to experience this new taste
of Phuket lifestyle.
With the expansion came the change of name. Now known as The Taste Phuket, but still at house No. 16 (formerly XVI ) this unique ‘lifestyle venue’ features live piano and trio jam session every Friday night, cocktail bar, succulent cuisine and 12 innovative and well appointed rooms to reside in when you need a bit of shut eye.
