SEEN Beach Club Samui
SEEN Beach Club Samui is a swanky, retro-themed venue on Chaweng Beach, just south of Koh Samui Airport. There are plenty of colourful cushioned seats spread across chequered floors, as well as a Cali-style metallic trailer next to a swim-up cocktail bar. It's enough to make you think you’re back in the roaring ‘50s in Koh Samui.
The beach club’s piece de resistance is its infinity pool, which rolls right out to meet Chaweng Beach. You can enjoy an extensive food menu of chilled oysters, sushi, and pizza, along with your choice of cocktails, champagnes, top-shelf spirits and wines. Pool parties often take place at SEEN Beach Club Samui, which gets packed with well-dressed locals and travellers until late.

Ark Bar is a Koh Samui institution that has been around for quite a few years. It is a lively cosmopolitan beachfront venue (almost 150 metres wide) offering excellent food, drinks, a chill-out groove in which to mingle and party to DJs’ latest live mixes.
Even though Ark Bar has changed hands several times, the bar/restaurant still uses the same methods to draw people in – fire dancers, fire shows, dining and dancing on the beach, as well as a relaxed atmosphere that extends to a children-friendly vibe, even late at night. Read More...

Soi Green Mango is a lively walking street in Chaweng. It’s loud, brash, and surprisingly pretty compact, so much so that before you know it you’ve walked through it to the other side. Several beer bars and dance joints line both sides of Soi Green Mango. Many of the beer bars are so similar that you’d be forgiven for mixing them up if you head back for another night of fun.

On Street Bar is one of the most original venues in Chaweng’s tremendous nightlife scene. Located next to the entrance of KC Beach Club Hotel, this tiny bar is made of corrugated iron and recycled wood painted in bright colours – without them, its 1-metre-wide façade would be totally unnoticed as the stall/shop next door sells vivid paper chandeliers.
On Street Bar is a very popular Koh Samui watering hole, so get there early to get a comfortable spot. The bar only has a couple of wooden tables and stools in its compact space. Read More...
