While it is the only bar that closest to the Centara Villa and YL Resorts, it has a local flavor and is right on the beach! Come in for a few drinks and chill.

This place has a athmosphere beyond normal standards. You feel like you have been there a 100 times before, with the great staff offering drinks of any kind (try the Blue one!). Placed 10 meters from the water, you feel in perfect balance with the nature.

I love this bar! Hidden away in a Jungle/beach setting it's great for those late nights when you want to sneak away and try some of the local cocktails! This place made our holiday and really catered for our large group of friends and family. With a friendly welcome and great drinks you will want to return again & again!

In the depths of the dark, rain-soaked Northern European winter I can't help but drift off to memories of the Cool Bar, its killer music, its cold cocktails and its idyllic views. Just a short walk, about 50 paces, from Centara Villas is as cool a bar as you're likely to stumble across anywhere in the world. You can sit... More
