    The best place for parents who wants to chill and listen to good music. Service is very good and accomodating. I especially liked the live music and the service. You must go there if you're around. Really feel like holidays.

    Increadible food, service and lansdcape.
    Incredible food, service and landscape. It' very welcoming and cozy. Every night they do a fire show and then play great live music, you can even sing with the musicians if you'de like. Thank you for everything, especially Pete, the owner of the bar, for his friendly and kind attention.

    Fabulous Atmosphere
    Spent pretty much every night of our time in Koh Lanta at the Why Not Bar. Great atmosphere, good food and the friendliest service ever! The singer/band that play every night are great and were happy to take requests. Love those guys!! The fire show is worth watching, a real showstopper. Wahwah you’re a total hero!! Can’t wait to see them all again next year!

    Great location on the beach
    Nice atmosphere. Dj during the afternoon , with a live band and fire show in the evening. Ideal for an afternoon swim , before or after lunch. Decent food at reasonable prices. Bbq on beach at night

    Great beach bar! Passionfruit mojitos and lychee martini’s were exceptional. 👌
    Great vibe. Excellent cocktails. Right on the beach. Good service. You won’t recommend adding this bar to your Koh Lanta list. And they accept credit card. A rare find around these parts!

    Fab fro and drink
    Had our delicious cocktails and beer from Why Not and sat outside the restaurant that was next door. The food was amazing. We all had different meal and we all thought it was very good. The live music was good and the fire show performed by youngsters was good

Come back to krabi/ and revisited this bar. There was a very aggressive male staff. Food never came after more than 1 hour+ waiting. We were starving, so paid for the drinks and decided to go. That aggressive man in ponytail rushed in front of us and yelled at us. He almost grabbed my friend clothes Said he needed us to pay the food that never came. He was very rude and so ridiculous and crazy. Two ladies (staff from the bar) tried to calm him down. Absolutely terrifying almost ruined our first night here in koh lanta. Nonetheless we definitely won't visit again.

This bar exceeds all expectations. Always friendly and smiling staff, great cocktails and very tasty food. During our stay in Lanta, me and my partner went to Why Not Bar more than once and the atmosphere was always amazing! They have really cool fire shows every night and live music. The location is perfect - Kantiang Bay is such a beautiful spot!

Why Not Bar is definitely a must-go!

The vibe at this place is perfect for a relaxing holiday feeling.

I enjoyed the live band very much. There is an independent fire show on the beach right in front of the beach seating at night.

I suggest you visit it at least once. We went there several times.
