Poll 2024: Illuzion Phuket

Location: Phuket, Thailand 

Capacity: 5,000

A gigantic venue built on the site of Ocean Plaza, a former shopping mall, Illuzion is one of Southeast Asia’s best clubs. Located in the popular tourist spot, Patong Beach, its three rooms sprawl over 6,500 square metres and come equipped with Funktion-One, L-Acoustics and Outline sound systems. In addition to its 300 VIP tables, there’s a 100-square-metre, high-definition LED wall, and, in the last year, the club has built a new DJ booth and incorporated 80 new beam, strobe, and blinder LED lights.  

Illuzion is split into distinct areas, with Empire Discotheque dedicated to hip-hop, Shelter focusing on techno, and a VIP room with opulent balconies, multiple bars and its own dancefloor. Visually and sonically impressive, Illuzion is no slouch when it comes to DJ bookings either. Its flagship promotion, Elevation, a tech-house event, has featured Nic Fanciulli, Paco Osuna, Claptone, Solardo, GORDO, James Hype and Meduza, and has a distinctive visual identity typified by triangle motifs. 

Celebrating a decade in operation this year, the club is more popular than ever, with an 18% uptick in club-goers in 2023: 2.3 million in total, setting a record for Southeast Asia. Looking ahead, the club plans to “continue our success in attracting visitors from all over the world by regularly showcasing international DJs and singers”.
