Home » Koh Kood » Nightlife

In keeping with the island vibe, Koh Kood nightlife is very low key and laid back, so don’t expect late nights, buckets and dancing on the beach till dawn.

You can jump straight to each category:-

Koh Kood Nightlife has been hit hard by the pandemic, with business at a standstill. Bars are hanging on in there at the moment (when they are allowed to open!). It’s difficult to say where things will stand early next year … when the island may be back in some sort of swing.

Around the Beaches

Klong Chao Area

The nightlife that does go off is centred around Klong Chao Beach on the west coast. Here you’ll find some live music at Tawan Eco Bar and its identikit neighbour Jah Thoom, whilst opposite, Sunset Bar has some decent tunes for the end of the day and occasionally does throw parties. Inland towards the waterfall, Bartist stands tall as the island’s hippest spot, popular with the Bangkok and the travellers’ crowd – it’s about a ten minute walk from the guesthouses and bungalows on the river.

Bang Bao

Heading over to Bang Bao Beach, opposite the turning to Koh Kood Resort and Natural Beach Resort, Fisherman Hut Music Station offers up a live band most nights of the week. Meanwhile, down on the sand itself, Monkey Bar at Siam Beach Resort is a chilled out spot, perfect for sunset watching.

Ao Takian Area

Further down the coast, in and around the main road at Ao Takian Beach, Taleh at Eve House and Kuba Lounge both make for relaxing spots to enjoy a drink and a chat, the latter known for its craft beers and ciders.

North from Klong Chao

Wave-F Homestay in Klong Mad gives you another option up in the north west of the island, with beers and cocktails served at its small in-house diner.

Resort Bars – Koh Kood Nightlife

Many of the resorts also offer excellent value happy hours in their beach bars and restaurants, with Klong Chao Beach’s Sea Bar at Peter Pan Resort, in particular, one to hunt out. You can enjoy too excellent views and lots of comfortable seating at  The Deck Bar at Koh Kood Resort.

For New Year, most resorts will lay on some sort of party, but the island itself normally organises one large celebration for the locals and tourists alike, complete with fireworks, local music and food stalls.
