“Best beach bar in the world”
Review of Lotus Beach Bar

Lotus Beach Bar

Reviewed December 26, 2012

The Lotus bar is close to perfect for the average fun-loving backpacker. Located at the edge of Sairee village, this bar opens an hour or two before sunset and carries on 'til about two in the morning. Facing due west for the perfect happy hour cocktail, you can sit on cushions on the sand or on bar-stools around the service area. Sunset is usually awesome on this island and here is a great place to enjoy. Good music comes from the excellent sound system until 7 o'clock when there is a couple of hours from the ridiculously talented Mr Simon Crockett who sings and plays solo acoustic guitar brilliantly.
After Simon comes DJ Jonny English who plays a great and varied set night after night.
The whole place is lit by flaming tikki torches and from 9 o'clock onwards the team of fire dancers put on an amazing display of fire poi to rival any poi show ever seen.
You cannot fail to be impressed by the variety of visual and aural entertainment offered and you can even eat great Indian food from Noori indian cuisine on the same plot of land.

While watching the awesome fire dancing I had all my stuff snatched from under me. Thought that it would be ok right under me. As I was looking for it I noticed people working behind the bar laughing at me I could only think that it was someone working there.

This bar is great. Always full of activity at night. Very comfortable seating on the beach til late evening and then the beach front becomes a dancefloor. Laughing gas balloons for sale. Music is great and the pai fire dancers are impressive. Drinks are standard prices, but there is a happy hour where drinks are 2 for 1. Enjoyable place with friendly crowd, even if you just want to sit and chill out with a few beers.
