Kids Club opens in Patong as the biggest indoor playground in Phuket
Children can now play, bake and learn magic tricks all day long in Patong at the the biggest indoor playground in Phuket, The Kids Club, now fully operational as a ‘premium children’s venue’ after completion of the padded adventure play area on the entire second floor of the Promenade Mall off Rat-U-Thit Road.
Safe play for kids of all ages
Operated by St. James Properties, the 800sqm venue was completed in May with the installation of imported playground equipment including bigger slides, a climbing wall, adventure walkways, a trampoline, a flying fox, party rooms and an indoor soccer pitch. Plus a ‘tired tots’ rest area.
Cup cake baking class
Creative cup cake franchise Joob Joob is also offering incredible edibles and edutainment at the Kids Club with a daily variety of freshly baked cup cakes, crepes, waffles and natural ice cream, plus illy coffee at the colourful counter and in comfy chairs in the lounge area. Children and adults can learn the secrets of Joob Joob’s famous creative cupcakes from the Joob Joob sisters, Ant and Kea. Classes can be booked in advance and are conducted in English, Thai and French.
The colourful sweet treats by Joob Joob are actually quite healthy snacks, said consulting partner to the Joob Joob sisters Anthony Reynolds.
“The Ice creams and sorbets are additive-free, containing no artificial colours or preservatives,” he said.
Magic tricks and party supplies at the Kids Club’s stores
More recent additions to The Kids Club expansion are a Magic Shop run by resident magician KoKo The Clown, who performs magic shows and teaches young customers how to do their own magic tricks, plus a party supply store with shelves stocked full of themed treats and toys to make any kind of party go off with a bang. Customers can also order helium balloons at the store.
Mega 10-metre slide
Operated by St. James Properties Group, Finnish owner, Esa Veli Mikael Huovila, said the aim of The Kids Club was to establish a dedicated one-stop party venue for children of all ages – and that “Phuket simply needed a place where parents can let their kids play in a safe, supervised environment”.

“The Kids Club also offers parents an ideal place to drop off the kids to do some shopping or take care of business knowing their children are in the safe hands of our team of dedicated staff,” said Mr Huovila.
“Of course, parents are welcome to relax here, too, while their children play. Wireless internet access is available for parents relaxing or working in the large lounge area, which has a reading corner and pleasant view,” he said.
Stores and seating area
Conveniently located next to Bangla Road and opposite Jungceylon, and with underground parking available at the Promenade Mall, The Kids Club is an ideal venue for throwing birthday parties with all the trimmings. Parents can order custom-baked birthday cakes from Joob Joob, magic performances by KoKo The Clown and of course, there’s ample space for youngsters to let off steam.
The Kids Club is open 10am to 9pm every day, offering a range of hourly rates for one-year-olds, under 18s and adults (18+) between 50 and 150 baht per hour, plus daily rates up to just 300 baht for the whole day.
