Amazing atmosphere and sunsets

Visited this place several times with my girlfriend throughout a 2-week stay in Koh Phangan. Generally, the prices are very reasonable. A couple of smokes go for 400 THB, and the stuff is quite good. Apart from the long way up to the sitting area and the playlist that contains the same 10 songs... read more

I visited Amsterdam Bar with 4 other friends in December 2013. It was the day after the Half Moon Party and was the perfect place to relax and unwind after a crazy party! We were recomended this place by the manager of our hotel. He described it as "Smokers paradise at sunset" and he was not wrong at all. Although... More

Dropped into the Amsterdam bar solo as I was doing a moped tour around the island. I timed my entrance perfectly as the sun was just starting to set and the place was packed full of people. I had my first beer downstairs near the pool and happily chilled out to the cool music and amazing backdrop. Being solo, I... More

Saw one of the best sunsets of my life here. Very relaxed atmosphere which is nice when you're in Koh Phangan and have been drenched in the madness of the party scene over the Full Moon period. The drinks seemed a bit too expensive but it's only a buck or two more than the average spot but I guess the... More

Definitely one of my top 5 bars in the world. It has a truly spectacular view of the sunset, that coupled with the awesome Reggae music they play makes it what it is. The road up to the Bar can be quite tricky-so if you are riding up, and more importantly riding down(considering the shape you will be in) take... More

This place is well known for selling drugs, but should be actually known for its scenic views. Don't bother with the food. If you just came here for a joint, then just buy yourself a beer with it and admire the views.

I stayed one night in the bungalows, a total dump, they are more focused on selling drugs in the bar than maintaining the accommodation. Stay away, eventually this place will be raided when the police want to make an example.
