Lava Lounge is not the only bar in Samui sidestepping bar girls and loud music but it’s one of the best that does so. Quite simply, Lava Lounge has the ‘it’ factor in spades in that it’s friendly, tasteful and actually brews up some great cocktails with a smile.
Choose from over 40 cocktails and from the wine list, to say nothing of the range of Belgium beers and tune into some great music (Bill Withers, classic Motown and company) while rubbing shoulders with the friendly punters.

As expected from its moniker, lava lamps abound here as well as bamboo sofas, an atmospherically lit bar and 60sqm of open-sided fun. In a quiet soi leading to the beach and Lamai Wanta Resort, Lava Lounge is a one-off for those who seek good company and a good drink.
The Irish-Thai owners, Frank and Ice have managed to pull off the relatively simple yet winning combination of a warm welcome, cocktails with a kick, and a place you never tire of.
Here, you won’t find persistent ladies of the night and the atmosphere is more like a British local pub than the typical island hangout featuring pumping music and bar hostesses. A good conversation, a laugh or two and a few drinks are the order of the day. There’s occasional live music, too. This is by an impressive margin the best bar in Lamai.
