Reading some of the rave reviews about this place we had to check it our whilst staying at Centara Villas. We didn't see what all the fuss was about so gave it a second try: same verdict. It's a perfectly acceptable beachfront bar like any other. Staff are pleasant but not particularly attentive, drinks are not badly priced for a... More

Really great atmosphere. Cheap drinks. Beautiful setting. I highly recommend it if you are close by in Samui. We stayed at Shasa Resort which was just a few minutes drive. Centara Resort and Butterfly Garden are even closer.

We had heard of the cool bar as it is a 2 minute walk from our resort of centara villas. The beachfront tables and bar look pretty cobbled together but the service, reception and quality of the food are first class. The prices are typical Thai - 90 baht for a good sized main dish - but the quality is... More

Probably the most unique bar I've ever been to anywhere. Secluded right on the beach. Felt like we were on an uninhabited tropical island. Cheap drinks. Be careful with the Blue Drink. Can't wait to go back.

We came here for our honeymoon, and found this awesome bar on the beach. We went there every night for our drinks and had a good few meals there too. Great food, Great drinks, and an amazing family running the place. You will feel welcome the moment you arrive, and feel like you are missing something in your life once... More

Such a great place. Doung and Un are so awesome. Un sat, chatted and drank with us for at least an hour and a half. Showing us his card tricks and generally having good chats. Can't say enough about this place. Be careful with the famous "Blue drink". I will mess you up : )

My boyfriend and I visited a couple of times during our stay at Centara hotel. We stumbled across it whilst walking along the beach. Lovely location, cheap cocktails (generous amounts) and friendly helpful service. We booked a boat trip here also. Much cheaper than elsewhere!!!
