Great western food for lunch with a 5 and 3 year old. Great cocktails, free pool that the kids loved, and happy staff. We were in low season, so no rush and no wait. My girls loved their pizzas'

The draw of this place is all about the location. You can sit on the beds on the beach, where staff will attend to your needs, My kids had great fun in the swimming pool. The Happy Hour prices are from 8am - 6pm if you want a cheap Sangsom bucket with breakfast! food was good, without being spectacular. Overall... More

Dined here twice - Once for breakfast; which was really oily with bad quality ingredients (pancakes were hard, oily and chewy, mushrooms were tasteless and drenched in oil and the bread was the cheap kind you find in the stores). Second time we came for lunch; I had the papaya seafood salad which was good but the prawns didn't taste... More

We took a tuk tuk from Chaweng to visit as we had been in previous years. The swings are now gone from the bar. There is now a pool. But the place looked a little run down. I had pad thai but it wasn't like any I had eaten elsewhere in Thailand I didn't really enjoy it. The staff were... More

Best spot for a bit of people watching! Has shady tables on elevated veranda... Usual list of drinks and a massive food menu! Ordered a hamburger... Luckily its cheap as the food was dry and very ordinary. However can easily while away an afternoon watching people on the beach and in the water!

My partner and took turns getting a massage while the other watched the kids in the water. Location was great. Massage was fair price thb 300 for oil massage. Drinks prices are relative. They also have a dipping pool upstairs beside the restaurant. It's obviously a partying scene at night which didn't interest us. But for the day it was... More

Swing bar has a really good location right on the beach with plenty of sun chairs, even though there are other restaurants on Lamai beach with complimentary sun chairs that are a lot more comfortable. The breakfast is nice with a wide variety to choose from, 3 dishes for 110 bath which was well worth it. We had some cocktails... More
