The High Bar & Lodge is based high in the hillside above Chalok Baan Kao with great views over Chalok Baan Kao and Saan Jao Beach, this is mainly a bar and restaurant with a few rooms available to rent and all have great views as of Chalok Baan Kao and the rooms in the north part of the building over looks Mae Haad.
It has a concrete road all the way to the top, but it's better to leave your bike and walk up (not much space for bikes at the top), it will only take you a couple of minutes. The building is constructed with wood from top to bottom with palm leaf roofs in different areas, they have also used the natural rock in the area as part of the internal look, including an inside waterfall and interconnecting ponds with lots of different fish in them. This bar has been designed well with plenty of hammocks and cushions everywhere, perfect to watch the sunset after another perfect day in paradise.
The kitchen serves great food and often has a BBQ night including baked potatoes, chicken, pork steaks, fish steaks, plus loads of salad and extras. They also serve traditional Thai & western food from their menu, and Pin mixes a mean cocktail, ask him to mix you a 'Mama Muu', but get ready for the delayed kick. Even if you can't get a room here it's still a great place to chill and wind down after a long day, with some great chill music and not bad for the sunset.
