Updare re beach restaraunts @ JW Marriott

Posted as a new topic as the original thread is 105 entries long now.

All the restaurants and massage places next to the Marriott are in full swing now with some finishing touches being made and there are still a few due to open shortly.

Farmai is now opening next to the Andaman between their restaurant building and massage hut. They are working away on the interior which shouldn't take long and Gecko man is alreay set up there. The beach seems to be fairly clean and tidy and I would expect further beautification in the weeks to come.

There is also a solitary beach bar a short walk to the left of the Marriott. Massage huts and a bar

with what appears to be a restaurant being built.

Sorry missed off the original post - the solitary beach bar to the left is called the Coconut Bar.

What about Ma Ma Greetings at the far end to the right of the JWM? Surprised about the Coconut Bar as that only opened last High Season and was as much on the beach as all the other beach restaurants etc that had to come down. Perhaps he's moved back on to privately owned land?

The Coconut Bar is located off the beach and within the tree line so safe / compliant of the new rules.

Not been to the far end but there is something beyond the Blue Mist but doesn't look open - yet.

Things seem to be changing rapidly and on a daily basis.

The coconut bar was set back but his tables had A beach view. It looked a bit lost set back in the trees And a bit bare inside.

It was like that all last High Season even when it was right on the beach. Mind you his meal prices for "real Thai food" were higher than any other beach restaurant and most others in town who had higher overheads to pay for. Hopefully, he has reduced them, that is if he is serving meals.
