My friend and I were travelling around Thailand for four weeks in August 2014. We were initially very disappointed when we arrived in Koh Samui as our bungalows were not very impressive and located off of a main road. However, the next day we walked along the beach and stumbled upon the Nature Bar. Poy was immediately very friendly with us and made us feel extremely welcome. We enjoyed a lovely lunch there and ended up staying for a few drinks in the afternoon. Poy introduced us to his partner Noi, who is equally as lovely and friendly and then she arranged two amazing day trips for us to go on over the coming days. We went on a day trip to the National Marine Park and also a jeep tour around the island; these day trips were both amazing and very well organised. We are very greatful to Noi for organising them for us as they really made our time in Samui much more pleasurable than we initially thought that it would be. These two days stand out as two of the best days of my whole trip!

Of course, we went back to Nature Bar before we left the island and again had an amazing meal and the lovely company of Poy and Noi. The bar is not in the middle of the hustle and bustle and so is very chilled out. It also has very clean facilities and great food. Both evenings that we spent there Poy drove us back to our accommodation so that we arrived home safely. Honestly, these guys will do anything to ensure that you have an amazing stay in Mae Nam. We can't thank you enough for your help and amazing service, as well as some hilarious conversations. If I were ever in Koh Samui again Nature Bar would be my first point of call.

Me and my family ate there last night. Mr Pang and Noy could not have been better hosts. We knew we should look out for this place as earlier reviews had hinted. The tempura prawns and spring rolls were heavenly, my wife had the red snapper and home made chips. Great beach setting sort of surfy like Tarifa Spain. We went in to Mae Nam from Four Seasons where we are staying, dropped down one of the beach roads off the main drag, you need to head to the beach and then go right when you hit the beach. After Zansebar, as you get to the Mae Nam river outlet, you'll see the flags on the beach. Sort of don't want to tell anyone because its so nice it might get spoiled but they deserve to do so well.... so there you go secrets out!

Nature bar is the best place to chill out in Mae Nam. Gorgeous beach location, perfect for dining overlooking the sunset at around 6-6.30pm (in july) or just to lounge about at all day. The food is amazing and the cocktails even better! We ate here more than once during our stay and went down for drinks a few times as the atmosphere is so laid back and we felt so welcomed.
We were staying in Samui on a volunteer trip, teaching in the local school. Poy and Noi arranged a tour of the island for us as well as answering as many questions as we could throw at them. They definitely make you feel at home as soon as you sit down. Some of the nicest people we met in Thailand.

I urge everyone reading this to go visit Nature Bar right now! You won't regret it!

This little restaurant has a great location on the beach with perfect service and away from crowded beach bars. If you want to chill out with a great view this is a must.

We had dinner here after deciding to take a walk past zenzibar for a bit before dinner.

I am always a little sceptical about restaurants that are dominated by people with only one review, although thankfully this place was decent.

The food was good, not particularly stand out, but still very nice in an area slightly limited for meals.

Could be an option if you're staying longer than 5 nights in maenam, otherwise there are slightly better in the area.
