Koh Raham on Phangan - authentic restaurant of marine litter

Do not be afraid of the word - a cult restaurant (orrather a bar) on the island of Phangan. Made in the style of Robinson Crusoe's hut from materials that seemed to have been fishing from the sea for a long time: snags, faded boards, bamboo, palm leaves, sticks and ropes with ropes. The atmosphere and landscapes here are just freaky, beyond all praise, the view of the sunset sea is chic, and generally full of romance and island chill out. The place is popular, widely known and on that crowded, which, however, does not spoil either your mood or the general impression of this cozy corner of Pangan.

Restaurant Koh Raham

The Thai "Ko" in the name of the restaurant and bar (meaning "island") is taken for beauty rather than geographic features. The bar is located not on the island, but on a rocky promontory between Haad Son and Haad Yaotwo of the most relaxing beaches onnorthwest Phangan. Sometimes, during the storm season, Koh Raham is seriously affected and partially destroyed by wind and waves. This, in part, explains the choice of material for construction by the owners of the building: here you are preserved and authenticity, which tourists are so fond of, and the price for the repair / maintenance of buildings in this case is minimal.

As a restaurant, because of not the most successfulthe performance of Thai cuisine and poor menu, this place does not deserve any special attention. Food in Koh Raham is expensive and, by all accounts, not the most delicious in Phangan. The bartender works much better, mixes good cocktails, and on the whole it is much more interesting to come from the point of view to lie in a hammock, take pictures in an unusual entourage, jump into the sea or just meet friends and skip a glass of something. Although many choose it for one or two romantic dinners at sunset. By the way, in addition to bamboo furniture, there is a massive, it looks unusual.

The first hall (if you can call it openspace), immediately following the entrance is fairly common. And all that I have listed above (ropes, snags and boards) is at the very tip of the island. Be sure to go there.

Besides the fact that I came to Koh Raham with friends, I later also settled at Haad Son Resort, my review of this hotel. So breakfast at the hotel took place inthe restaurant Koh Raham, however, they were so-so and taking out for an additional fee does not make much sense. But there is a reason to sit in the morning, while the restaurant is just a couple of people.

In addition to food and drinks, Koh Raham pleases cleanentering the water. Not in the sense that there is a beach here, but just a section of the sea under the restaurant without underwater surprises and you can jump from a three-meter height without fear of breaking your bones. In addition to jumping here you can tolerably snag, because the sea is clean and clear due to the lack of sandy beaches and smelly rivers. Although, frankly, the local underwater wildlife is not very pleased with the diversity. But this, as it were, the problem of Samui and Phangan as a whole - all snorkeling and diving are on Koh Tao.

In general, Koh Raham is interesting precisely by its organic combination of interior and exterior, authenticity and landscapes, positive aura and pleasant aftertaste. Including - from cocktails.

Information to visit

Admission is free, prices can be viewed on the pictures.

You can get to the restaurant’s territory on foot from Haad Son Beach or through resort Haad Sonleaving the bike in their parking lot. At least once, it is worth coming at sunset, and it is better to come at least an hour to occupy a table, otherwise there are many such smart people.

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
