Julie and I spent a perfect romantic evening at the trendy floating WooBar at the W Retreat Koh Samui. It was quickly approaching our last night on Koh Samui, so we were excited to see one last sunset before our next adventure.
It had been raining fairly hard during the morning and we were holding our thumbs that it would clear up for the evening. Fortunately for us the rains had stopped and we were excited to enjoy a lovely evening together. Once we arrived at the hotel we walked through the trendy reception filled with contemporary and modern furnishings and unique art everywhere you looked. We were “wowed” by the spectacular 270 degree views of the surrounding islands and the stunning reflecting pool with its four island lounges that seemingly spilled over the hillside.
As we walked to the bar we were escorted to one of the trendy lounges by a casually dressed “talent” — W’s term for team member or staff. The glow of the fading sunset, effective green floating lights and colored changing center tables created a fun and club-like ambiance.
We had no cell phones or distractions, and it was just the two of us relaxing in this large lounge chair. After receiving our delicious Mojitos we were set for the evening. The DJ started spinning some tunes and we felt like we were in a trendy Chicago lounge, not on an island in the Gulf of Thailand.
We sat there for a few hours sipping on our tasty Mojitos and reminiscing about our journey while being on the road for the past 11 months. The atmosphere was soothing and we were feeling very relaxed. The “talent” were very attentive to our needs, offering us deliciously flavored popcorn while keeping our Mojito bottomless!
Yes, bottomless! There is such a thing as free-flow Mojitos at this bar!
They have a variety of seven signature “Mo-Hee-Toes” that you can try and an extensive cocktail menu. Julie enjoyed the Lychee Mojito and I liked the Boritos which has a spicy flavor. The Dusty and Classic Mojitos are also a good choice.
We would highly recommend this experience as a romantic date night while on the island. If you are not staying at the W, be sure to arrange transportation to avoid drinking after a night of bottomless mojitos. If you do however, have the opportunity to stay at the W Retreat Koh Samui they incorporate music, fashion and art throughout the beautiful property with all the 5-star amenities and some complementary spoilings throughout the property.
Our next trip to Koh Samui will definitely include an evening at WooBar for their incredible Free Flow Mojito night!
