Koh Samui has changed a lot over the last twenty years and even more so over the last ten. What used to be a paradise for backpackers who loved nothing more than going barefoot to a rustic bar on the beach has changed into a location that is far more cosmopolitan.
Chaweng is one area where the changes are far more noticeable, gone are the rustic bars with that tropical island feel and low level music where you can chill out and chat with like minded travelers and discuss you adventures, or has it? Chaweng may not seem like the kind of place where you can go back in time and enjoy what used to be the main attraction of Koh Samui but there is one place where you can really get away from it all, chill out and relax, enjoy bamboo and tropical plants, clever lighting and not hear any of the noise from the traffic down on the street below, or the pollution and most incredibly this bar is smack bang in the middle of Chaweng.
The SKYBAR can be found where the one way system in Chaweng becomes two-way. Travelling in the same direction of the one way traffic simply take a right turn when it becomes two way, towards the walking street market and it’s on your right hand side, alternatively you can take the last turning on the right before the traffic meets and it will be on your left.
You access the sky bar by some steps at the right of the reception area, two flights up and past the large, well appointed room you will find yourself on a roof terrace that will take you back in time. The large roof top terrace boasts a large bar area with bar stools where you can engage in some friendly banter with Kim, the owner and his staff, and of course others who have found this little slice of paradise amid the chaos on the streets down below.
As well as bar seating there are some comfortable chairs for a more intimate cocktail, cold beer, a glass of wine or a G&T and taller seating around tables on the other side. From here during the daytime you have a sea view to the north, the ocean is only 150 meters away, and can indulge in a spot of people watching to the south around the markets.
For central Chaweng the drinks prices are incredibly reasonably priced and there is free Wifi. The atmosphere in the SKYBAR is incredibly laid back with well picked tunes you can enjoy without ruining your conversation.
The Sky Bar is a welcome addition to Chaweng nightlife and the ultimate place to enjoy pre or post dinner drinks. It is open from 6pm every day other than Sunday. Easy parking by the police station or Laem Din Car Park
