Rock Bar is a unique place, wild and relaxing at the same time. Perched among the rocks overlooking the sea, it offers a fantastic view. Available for customers beers, shakes, cocktails and good Thai food. Do not miss the rock into the sea which can be reached from the beach. Enjoy nature and freedom reggae style!

Great little hideaway with sensational views overlooking the beautiful Samui coast. Relaxing spot to sink a few beers whilst taking in some Robert Nesta tunes.

Have returned for 10 days to the Rock Bar at Hinta Hinyai (Grandfather and Grandmother rocks) near Lamai after 6 months traveling SE Asia. They all remembered our fun times of before, which will continue. An ideal place to chill out a bit with a very friendly bunch

The atmosphere was bad! Dont take the special 800 baht shakes ! Its a waste of time and money. I would never go back there and sure they just want to rob you......These kind of bars destroy the samui .

Went there once with friends. Nice and cosy bar, but very boring place. It seemed they had only one song that constantly repeated.

Not sure what some people are trying to buy here when they say they've been scammed!!!.... Maybe something off a 'special menu' maybe, but we stopped by for a cold beer and cocktail and sat on a mat on the floor, in a kind of tree house / platform bar made from anything washed up on the shore. Great reggae... More

Cool spot with Marley music inside a tree house. However, we got fake happy shake(green muddy looking tastes awful) and joints. Server charged us through the roof. Waste of money.
