“Chilled out and fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Along the beach at Fishermans Village Bophut,don't miss this gem of a place.
Day beds, egg chairs and huge comfy cushions on the beachfront , combine to make this an oasis in Koh Samui.
Great cocktails served by attentive staff and the best " chilled out " music in Thailand. Arrive around sunset and enjoy the atmosphere created by an array of flickering candles and get ready to party the night away. A must do in Bophut !

“Great chilled bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

From walking along the beach from our hotel to the Fisherman’s Village, Coco Tams is the first bar on the street and after visiting a number of times probably takes the title of coolest bar in Bo Phut.


Set on the beach itself seating is by way of massive bean bags, hanging chairs and large beds.


The vibe is massively chilled out with slow music playing and shisha available for a smoke while you look over the beach and sea in front of you. Its hugely popular and gets very busy but is entirely worth hanging about for a few minutes if you cant get a seat.

There is a large projector screen normally playing sports with no sound allowing you to watch without distracting from the chilled atmosphere.

Having such a cool spot and bar allows Coco Tams to charge a little extra for their drinks but not much more than most bars in Bo Phut. So much so we often stopped here walking back to the hotel for a night cap.

“Good location for happy hours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Although their cocktail price is a bit high 220-240 b, it worths for it. Big bean bags on the beach, happy hour starts from 4-7, with 20% off.

“Romantic evening on the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

The fresh coconut shakes we had were excellent! We were seated literally 2m from the ocean, on big bean bags and had a very relaxed evening. The only downside: the big screen right next to us, showing football games.
