New Cafe/Restaurant/Bar in Kantiang

A new cafe, restaurant and bar has opened, all under one roof, in Kantiang Bay. You can’t miss the ultra chic looking Alama restaurant as you enter Kantiang Village from the North of the Island.

Inside Alama Restaurant


The cafe and restaurant on the ground floor serve a vast selection of moderately priced very tasty Thai food, along with a few Western alternatives such as pizza, pasta, and burgers. They also have a seafood BBQ. But you should remember to save a little bit of room for desert as they have great home-made ice-cream.

Upstairs in Alama is a lounge bar where you can treat yourself to a cold beer or three after a hard day on the beach! The bar area is casual-chiq.. which means it has the typical Thai-style relaxed vibe with cushions on the floor, but with the bonus of the trendy setting and the luxury of air conditioning.

The decking area outside

The decking outside Alama is a great place for a spot of people watching as you let the day drift by. So whether you need a spot of coffee to wake you up in the morning, to eat some delicious food with friends, or to have a cheeky drink at the end of the day – it’s all on offer at the Alama!
