“Where was the music”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

A good location on the end of Kata Beach, but not over impressed with the service or the average food. Convenient during the day but despite all the posters about the music we didn't hear any on three separate visits. OK for a drink.

“Perfect Spot for Lunch or sunset on Kata Beah”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in kata Beach resort and Spa hotel which was fairly close to the ska bar. Turn left when you get on the beach and its the last bar.
The bar is just above beach level then there are two restaurant floors slightly higher.
The drinks, shakes, soft and beers were all cheap or as cheap as other bars on the Beach and the food was extensive and cheaper/reasonable prices depending if you went Thai or European food.
Portion sizes were generous and the food was tasty. We had Thai green curry, fried rice, tuna bread, carbonara, chicken pizza amongst the many dishes and all plates were cleared every day.
Lovely position of the bar for people watching or watching the sunset, beer or cocktail In hand! I'll miss it

“Friendly, lovely view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

Friendly bar staff, cheap quality beer and amazing views of the beach. They play reggae music all night which we loved. Nice to sit on the edge of the bar overlooking the cove far away enough from the music to have a chat.

“Favorite spot during sunset!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

Servers are friendly w/o being overbearing and they don't mind if you sit there drinking for hours on end while reading a book. They don't rush you out plus they have good reggae music and a friday night fire dance show with BBQ! Best place to be at during sunset when it's cooler, the beach is bathed in a golden light and there's a nice breeze blowing.

“Our favorite spot in Phuket”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

Ska Bar is the place we usually end up before bed. Reggie Music funky decoration with fantastic sea view, and you will never get weak cocktails! Perfect place to catch up and get blasted with friends without messing up around in downtown ;)
