“Typical rasta stuff”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

If you are on the budget: You can sleep in their cheap tents for 100 Baht with water running in the tents if its raining, all my books were ruined and everything wet (but there are also tents with a "roof".) If you don´t mind about having a shower or cleaning of everything. No problem, else take the jungle. They say it´s the thai way. But it´s the rasta way like everywhere in Thailands raggae bar- doing nothing besided being friendly and taking high prices for drinks or joints to afford their own use of marihuana. I think so. If you are taller then 1,88 - very small tents as well, so even not cheap for what you get, but o.k.
relaxed athmosphere at night and you can meet other travellers.

“Proper hippy bar”
Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

We came here twice, once for a quite drink and again for a half moon party. Had a great time on both occasions. This is a proper, chilled out hippy bar that serves booze, hash cakes, joints and magic mushroom tea and shots. It's run by a couple of young Thai dudes who aren't in it to make a quick buck off tourists, this is a genuinely cool, laid back bar.
The half moon party was great fun, DJs playing house and trance, a Bon fire and loads of people having a fab time. A very fun and chilled out bar.

“Not a restaurant.”
Reviewed November 21, 2012 via mobile

Not a restaurant unless you like eating and drinking stuff made from magic mushrooms and ganja. Mong by name and Mong by nature.
It is actually a bar built out of beach debris , a refrigerator hasnt been washed up yet as my beer was served warm.
Whist there is no mainstream sex tourism in koh Lanta this sort of place seems to attract single middle aged women who must find the dreadlocked thai boys who work here irresistable!
