Good food and a good vew

It was a good place for lunch and listening to the sounds of the ocean... Next to the beach you can choose to inside or outside. I chose the latter as it is good to overlook the beach when dining. The decor is nice and the food is good too.

Came here for their 109 Baht breakfast deal (select three of the food/drink options) plus tea or coffee. Hash browns, bacon and eggs were fine but the pancake and waffle was terrible. I'm not sure if they were made on site or not, but they were undercooked, doughy and not edible. We used their sunbed for free following breakfast (which... More

Swing Bar has a nice atmosphere. When we visited not too busy and not too quiet, just right. We found a table sat on the Veranda overlooking the sea. Staff are quick to come and ask if we wanted more drinks. Has some pool tables and nice music and is definitely worth a visit for the fire show on the... More

Loved the atmosphere and all the staff. Drinks are pricey in comparison to other bars around the area. It is right next to Rich Hotel so I guess we should have expected the higher pricing! I was charged 190BAHT for one drink and that same drink, not half a mile away, was only 70 BAHT!!!!!!

Diabolical surroundings, but lovely mojitos, and cheerful staff. If you like the smell of paraffin, this would suit you.
