Just a walk along the beach from Centara and you find the Cool bar,great for a beer or cocktails.
Only negative is it could do with the rubbish being cleared.

Such a great little bar that gives you a real tropical island feel! Sitting on tree stumps on the shore among the palm trees, right back to basics! Feels a little deserted at times, not suited for someone looking for luxury. The cocktails are fab & they are great prices. The owners Dung & Un are a lovely friendly couple who really look after their customers - give you cushions to sit on, bug repellant & remember you when you return - even light a Chinese lantern on your last night! Dung was very helpful to us when we had a moped accident - he recognised us & we weren't even near the bar! Was devastated we didn't get to return before we went home - crutches & sand don't go together very well! Well worth a visit!

What might first appear as a basic wooden shack turns in to the most atmospheric and enjoyable place to be after a great day of sun, sea and sights. The owners and their family are so warm and welcoming - you soon find yourself to be really attached and loyal to the place. We visited most nights and enjoyed the friendly conversation and reasonably priced drinks. Note, there is no toilet at the bar so brace yourself for a trip down the beach... don't let this put you off though - it's definitely worth a visit! A trip to Natien would not be the same!

We stayed in Centara Villas next door in August 2013 for 9 nights for our honeymoon. We went to Cool Bar nearly every night, the bar is a perfect place to chill with a drink and talk to other couples.

The owners are amazing and will do anything for you, for example they would order McDonalds and have it delivered to the bar for us!!

We made some amazing memories in this bar and cannot wait to return in the future! Highly recommended.

Spent 10 days in Koh Samui in August on our honeymoon. Luckily we booked Centara Villas as next door we found the amazing Cool Bar. We spent many an evening/early morning here enjoying the cocktails and the excellent host Un and Doung. Many memories from this place; the blue drink, sleepy John, Tim hurts, kissing crabs to name but a few. We hope to return some day soon. John & Marie
