Woobar is one of the coolest bars I have ever been too. We didn't stay at W but made a trip to have a drink there one evening. Amazing view despite the overcast. The pods were covered due to rain so we chose to sit at the bar. The decor was chic and stylish. We were given iPads to pick... More

Went to Woobar for celebratory birthday drinks about 5pm and stayed till 7.30pm. The reservation for the Sunken Pod for eight persons was arranged by Anya with a minimum of fuss via email from Australia. Understandably, there is a deposit which is subtracted fully from your final check. Despite looking at numerous photos on reviews, as soon as you walk... More

Reservation must be made if you would like to sit at their signature sunken pond. A minimum of THB5000 is charge for reservation. We have chosen to have our tea time over there so that we can experience the feeling of the bar from day time to night. The bar was almost fully occupied during tea time. The atmosphere became...

Glad we went to enjoy the sunset and have a drink, though we weren't staying at the resort. As non-guests we had to purchase a 600baht (each) ticket to enter, which was put toward our purchases. Two drinks and two appetizers later, that money was spent. We felt it was worth it to experience the atmosphere (W knows how to... More

My boyfriend and I visited for a drink one evening. The view and retreat itself are absolutely stunning but the prices are very high - we were shocked! You do receive very good service though and it is worth a visit for the view alone.

Was here for a chillax moment + sunset viewing with my hubby and our little one. Nice place with fabulous seat setting. Friendly staff. The only upset thing is there are quite a numbers of visitors who just came for never ending posing + photo shooting session all over the nice seating area but not ordering anything from the bar....

Had a few drinks here and while the view is absolutely stunning there was just no vibe. A lot of cashed up Chinese groups just taking selfies and really not that exciting if you aren't in one of the sunken booths. Drinks aren't cheap either. But probably still worth it just for the view!

My husband and I are currently staying at the W Retreat. We went to the Woobar for drinks and light food last night and it was amazing! From the service to the ambiance, to the fabulous cocktails this was heaven on earth. We ordered the fried squid and the satay of chicken with peanut sauce and both were perfection! So... More

Only come for the view. 600 door charge, and service and tax charges took our 2 cocktails and chips to nearly 1450 baht (around 60aud or 45usd). Way overated. This is Thailand people. Go buy your own drinks and drive up to a lookout and have a great time. If you want to get caught in the western rat race,... More
