I really enjoyed my time here. The staff was pleasant and the food was good. Large portions and many options. Great value for breakfast. I wish they would keep the music upstairs, though. It was difficult to read my book on the sunbeds. I have Celiac and they were accommodating. I just ordered things that were naturally gluten free.

This place is awesome. The fire shows are spectacular, the music is loud and the bar is cool, the beach is also really nice. The staff is sort of slow, but that only lends to the laid back attitude.

Spent one afternoon here planning to eat on the beach but never made it. Too much alcohol in the little red bucket!!! Fun was had by all. Will return. The place does... More

We went for late dinner and ordered SomTum, barbecued Tuna and a Red Snapper. Som Tum with crab came with raw crab in pieces (including Shells) - no Chance to break them up. The Tuna was dry and Butter garlic Sauce would have fittet better for Popcorn. The Snapper came more than half an hour late - in a way... More

After reading all the devious we decided to visit Swing Bar on our recent hols to Samui. The location is great right on a beach, but the loud music killed any sound of the sea. The place is a bit like lunapark where owner threw everything and anything at you creating what I can only call a confusion. The menu... More

I have been to Lamai several times and have never come across this place before. In fact it was only because I was looking at hotels more central to Lamai that the Swing Bar came to my notice. Don't be put off by the name, it has nothing to do with wife swapping. It took me a while to find... More

The swings at the bar are a great novelty features. The food is tasty and filling and good value for money. The cocktails are lovely and it is a little over priced but worth it as their is seating on the beach. At night the fire shows are fantastic!
