Owner description: A truly unique way to spend an evening in Samui. Step into an environment where the walls, bar, tables and even your own personal glass are made of ice. With a lovely garden area and air conditioned lounge bar too, it is a bar that caters to all ages and all nationalities. Entry is free with our 3 drinks entry package. Hats, capes and even fun costumes are provided for your enjoyment. The best place in samui to spend some time with close friends, while being looked after by our great staff.

“First time! It was fun enough!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014 via mobile

As part of contiki we decided to come to bar ice! First word of advice maybe wear some closed shoes it's freezing in there!

When you buy your ticket you can choose to buy entry only or include some drinks on your ticket! They give you a hat and a poncho and in you go!

It's pretty cool inside with everything made of ice including your drinking glasses! The bar is small and the novelty does wear off quickly! The most entertaining part of the night was the magician who kept everyone amazed and flabbergasted with his tricks! We're still scratching our heads!

“Totally worth a visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014 via mobile

AMAZING Whoever owns Bar Ice must have had a crazy dream to think of placing an ice bar in tropical temperatures, however what a fantastic outcome. I have been to the ice bar in London and in Egypt and this is much better, a real party atmosphere, you can have as long as you want or as often as you like inside the cold temperatures, with some funky music and cool cocktails with great locally inspired ice sculptures, it even has an Ice Tuk Tuk! Really friendly who all joined the party atmosphere, definitely a must do!

“Amazing place in koh samui”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

Me and my husband came here while we was on our honeymoon in chaweng. The staff were all so welcoming and friendly and we was having long conversations with them throughout the night. You could go into the ice bar, into the normal bar or into the garden bar and spend the evening there going back and forth into what ever bar you wanted to. The ice bar was good inside, ice chairs, ice cocktail glasses etc. reasonable prices for drinks. I would definatly go, something different for koh samui. Thank you to the staff for a great night there.

“Perfect place to start your night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

Bar Ice is probably the perfect place to start your night out. After you've had some food and before heading to the loud obnoxious dance clubs that get going around midnight, you should stop in for a few drinks. The bar itself has 3 areas. The main bar which is air conditioned, the ice bar which is about -7 degrees and the outside lounge area. All three areas have their different uses. The ice bar is obviously the novelty here with ice sculptures and a variety of vodka shots and drinks. There are warm clothes to put on and after a hot day in the sun it can be a blessing. There is a fee to get into the ice bar but there are different levels of tickets you can buy and each one has free drinks that can make staying for some drinks after a good deal. And of course there is no obligation to go into the ice bar. Definitely something that should be experienced when on Samui. The main bar always has a fun friendly atmosphere and the drinks are plentiful and well made. Not to mention that it's one of the few bars that has air con on so it's nice to relax and be comfortable and take a break from the heat. The staff always seem to be having fun and are happy to help customers. The outside lounge area has lots of great seating available. Regular tables and bamboo hut style lounge areas. The pool table and beer pong table are out there too and the music is always great. To keep you entertained they always have funny videos on the TVs to watch when you aren't using the free WiFi. I love this place and always visit a few times when I'm on Koh Samui. There is always a free shuttle driving around on Chaweng road too if you want an easy way to get there. Go on, check it out. You won't be disappointed.

Thank you for such a comprehensive review. Many people forget that we are one of the only bars in Koh Samui that is air conditioned.....and when its 30 degrees centigrade at night you need air con! Please come back to see us when you are in samui again. Thanks for the comments.

“Best bar in Samui!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

I had visited the ice bar, purely by chance, several months ago in Oct '13 thinking I had to see how anyone managed to pull off the ice sculpture concept all the way out here. I had such a great time during that visit, thanks to the really friendly staff and mind-blowing cocktails, that I had to bring a friend back for the experience. The plan was to stop in for an hour or two, but this easily turned into staying until closing, such is the atmosphere created by both the staff and the people you find joining you for a drink there.

The ice sculptures are amazing, and the drinks are just how you'd like them - strong and tasty. Grab the free bus ride to the bar and enjoy the mesmerizing, mystical, moves of Magic Lee, enjoy being wrapped up warm for the ice experience, then kick back and enjoy the delicious cocktails, or even take the beer bong challenge.
