Lava Lounge is a friendly bar in Koh Samui that's known for brewing up some great cocktails. You can choose from over 40 cocktails or wines from its extensive list. There's also a range of Belgian beers if you prefer a nice pint. The lounge is great for listening to some great music – mostly classic Motown and soul – while rubbing shoulders with friendly punters.

What are the highlights of Lava Lounge?

As expected from its moniker, lava lamps abound here as well as bamboo sofas, an atmospherically lit bar and 60 square metres 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.

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.

The atmosphere in Lava Lounge is more like a British pub than the typical island hangout featuring pumping music and bar hostesses. A good conversation, a laugh or 2, and a few drinks are the order of the day (or night). There’s occasional live music, too. This is, by an impressive margin, one of the best bars in Lamai.
