This place has a athmosphere beyond normal standards. You feel like you have been there a 100 times before, with the great staff offering drinks of any kind (try the Blue one!). Placed 10 meters from the water, you feel in perfect balance with the nature.

I love this bar! Hidden away in a Jungle/beach setting it's great for those late nights when you want to sneak away and try some of the local cocktails! This place made our holiday and really catered for our large group of friends and family. With a friendly welcome and great drinks you will want to return again & again!

In the depths of the dark, rain-soaked Northern European winter I can't help but drift off to memories of the Cool Bar, its killer music, its cold cocktails and its idyllic views. Just a short walk, about 50 paces, from Centara Villas is as cool a bar as you're likely to stumble across anywhere in the world. You can sit... More

We stayed at Centara Villas at the end of August for our honeymoon. We were getting fed up of the 17% extra on each bill at Centara for mediocre food, and average cocktails and were so pleased to find "Cool Bar" open on our 3rd night. The bar is easily reached from Centara along the beach; the path was lit... More

This bar is a short walk along beach from Centara Villas it's so quaint a beach hut with cold beer. Nothing special just laid back Thai style. We popped along a few times some nice little views of the bay's while sipping a cold beer. Very chilled

We stayed at the Centara Villas like many and were recommended the Cool Bar on our 1st day. It's a nice, relaxed little bar but at times it was very quiet and we were the only ones there, so we decided to spend a few nights at our hotel bar which was a bit livelier. Could just be the time... More

Doung and Un are two of the nicest people in Koh Samui, and went above and beyond to make sure everyone felt comfortable at their bar. The name really doesn't lie: it truly is a cool bar. The drinks were yummy and affordable, and the atmosphere was relaxed and homey. We were greeted like old friends, and felt right at... More
