Happy hour 4-6 every day The front of the restaurant and bar is a large covered deck with cushions and low tables where you can sit and look out over the sea. On the beach we have salas where you can sit in the shade and be part of the beach life. We have free wifi internet covering the restaurant, bar and part of the beach. Perfect for just checking your e-mail on your iPhone or doing a spot of work with your laptop. Our designs have been heavily influenced by traditional Thai building methods. All our buildings are made of natural hard woods built on posts buried in the ground eliminating the need for concrete foundations. The roofs are made from local thatch.

We went there one day for Happy Hour drinks and were really satisfied. Good service and tasty cocktails. A few days later we were back for lunch, we had thai food and tuna sandwich and both were really good! The coconut cream Shake is amazing!
