Beach sunbed for the price of a drink

They do not charge to to use their sun beds but you are naturally expected to buy drinks and or food from them. Drinks service to the sun beds is very good and as always in Thailand... read more

The pizza here was good but the other food (a massam curry and the breakfast - it says that you get two bits of bacon when it is in fact one bit cut in two ) was poor. Service was ok but some staff were a bit abrupt. It was a bit like going to a whetherspoons in the UK... More

We spent our last night here and it was well worth it ! Service was good, one guy in particular stood out to us - fluent English and very good at making cocktails ! Spent the evening watching the fire show, so romantic and perfect way to spend our last night. Make sure you visit on a Friday or Monday

Our hotel recommended this place as somewhere to get everything you need from a beach day - food, a lounger and instant access to one of the best swimming beaches on Koh Samui. What they failed to say was that the service was friendly, quick, great value for money. The food was fresh, tasty and well priced. The staff gave... More

We walked up beach side for the Fire Show which was good, but not as good as the one at Ark bar which was a little 'bigger'. Here it seemed more chill. Then again, it was a Monday night. Then we went upstairs into the actual bar to scope out the swings and we were really confused by what we... More

You can dine on the beach here, either at your lounger or at a table. Waiters work hard all day and always have a smile for you. Drinks are reasonably priced for a beach location, try the chilled coconut, delicious. The food is ok, bog standard westernised Thai.

Went here on a friends request and was slightly disappointed to begin with. The swings are only around the actual bar. Would be cool if they were on the beach as well. The fire show is the real thing to see here. Fire twirling, limbo, fireworks, lanterns this show has it all.
