Description: A chilled out Thai restaurant and bar serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is owned and operated by a Hospitality accredited alumni from Thailand University, with 8 years experience working in the most luxurious hotels on Phi Phi Don and 4 years in Bangkok. We offer free Wi-Fi as well as the only licensed snorkelling tours in Phi Phi, with a guide who brings more then 10 years experience. We are the first bar on Loh Ba Kao, 4 doors up from Pad Thai restaurant and located directly behind Outrigger Phi Phi Island Village Resort. A great atmosphere and local company can be found here! Open 10am until you can't drink no more!

We stayed in Phi Phi for 4 days. We were told by friends to find Mr Chet for a boat tour which we did. He takes no more than 6 people on his Longboat and gives a personal and knowledgable tour of the island. You see other tour boats with 20-30 people crammed on.... Didn't look like much fun!! Our day was relaxed and pure paradise. Mr Chet personally takes you to the most amazing spots, goes snorkelling with you to point out the Sharks and turtles and then takes you to a lagoon to enjoy chicken and rice and fresh fruit made fresh by his family from the restaurant.... It's amazing and should not be missed!!! Maya Beach, Turtle Bay and Monkey Beach are worth seeing. Mr Chet and his crew make the day special and he takes photographs on his own underwater camera throughout the day for you all included in the cost! We also ate in the Knock Out restaurant a number of times.... The food is delicious and fresh and Mr Chet and his family run a friendly and happy restaurant. It was a pleasure to be a part of it! Hope to visit them all again soon!!!

I wrote a review on the Phi Phi page too, but Chet's bar is actually on Phi Phi so not sure how it wound up here. Posting my (long- sorry in advance) review here too so it's covered in both places!

We found the Knock Out bar while exploring the village behind our resort on our first night in Phi Phi. Chet and his team were so friendly and welcoming, chatting with us and attempting to teach us a few words in Thai (pronunciation is not one of my strengths as it turns out).

We had a few drinks and inquired about his private tours of the islands and he let us know that he needed a minimum of 4 people and only ever takes a max of 6 on his boat and at that point there were just two of us interested for the next day (late April is the start of low season and the island was pretty quiet). But he told us that if no one signed up, he would just take us out the day after even if there weren't two more! We were leaving for Karon that day and he also offered to bring our bags along in his boat on the trip and drop us at the ferry to Phuket afterwards, which was incredibly nice of him and made our lives a lot easier. We had lunch there the next day to check in on how many people had signed up, and the food was good and the price right. Chet's wife cooks everything to order and you can tell the difference when you're eating it! We had curry and pad see ew and both were great.

There were still only two of us for the tour at that point and we finalized the details at the same time during lunch. Chet wanted to start earlier than usual (7am, yikes!) to make sure we got to see everything and didn't miss our ferry. The next morning he even called us at 6am to confirm that the weather was good and to make sure we were awake. We had a couple girls join us last minute to avoid the big resort tour because Chet's sounded better and off we went!

Tour was fabulous! He used to work for Phi Phi Island Village Resort and Zeavola as a snorkel and dive tour guide so knows the route all the tours take and goes the opposite way! We started in the most amazing lagoon and no one else was there yet- it was absolutely stunning, especially with only 4 of us! We went to Maya Beach before all the boats started rolling in (although it seems to be consistently busy there- even during low season), went snorkeling in a few areas and saw many fish, a couple sea snakes, and a bunch of black tip reef sharks. Topped it off with a stop at a quiet little beach for lunch and then a quick trip to Monkey Beach before dropping us off at the ferry. Bonus: he takes a bunch of photos with his underwater camera and emails them to you afterwards.

All in all an amazing experience all around and I cannot recommend Chet enough! Try the food and drinks, book a tour, and get to know this wonderful family. Well worth it!
