Such a great place! Just on the beach, you have great views, specially late in the evening. We went to Koh Samui for our honeymoon and the Cool Bar made it so much fun, we went there every night! Un and Doung (the owners) are great fun and very nice people, although be careful with Un's drinking games, you will... More

We've been travelling through to the island of Samui for years. There's something really special about the place and when we found The Cool Bar it made us come back year after year. I dont often write on here about our travels but to read nasty reviews like the one below about a dodgy "Moritos" are just lies. I've had... More

Based on the so many positive reviews from tripadvisor, we had been Cool Bar one night. The bar locates in a quiet beach of southern Samui. Surrounding looks good, lots of drinkers' pic. posted everywhere. There was no other guest when we arrived. One Thai woman served us, no any Thai smile, no any friendly welcome words as other guests... More

The 2nd visit for us and Aun and Doung, not forgetting Sak, made it truly special and welcomed us back with a few memorable nights my family and I will look back on often! You will not find a better bar that offers a genuine and unique welcome. A 'must visit' especially if you are staying at the Centara Villas.... More

As with most guests staying at the nearby Centara Villas, my wife and I stumbled upon Cool Bar a few hundred yards along the beach. What a find it was! Un and his lovely with Duong make you feel at home as soon as you sit down, chatting away, playing games and occasionally fortune telling! There is a huge choice... More

We visited this bar most days, the drinks were great, beer was cold and a good price.We even had Rosie the dog to escort you back to the hotel. We also booked a fishing trip through the bar and had a great day even if we did not catch much.

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.
