Cool bar

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.

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.

I ordered a Pad Thai which had a huge omlette on the top which was undercooked, so the egg was snotty underneath. The pad Thai also had some really nasty bits of chicken which had grissle and other nasty things which I haven't a clue what they are. I had the unpleasant experience of chewing several pieces like this. Put... More
