KOKULO BEACH CLUB - EVERY DAY A KOKULO DAY AT THE BEACH OF BANG NIANG
December 29, the date that falls exactly between Christmas and New Year’s Eve. On that day in 2021 we were on vacation in Khao Lak and decided that we could add another festive day to the December holiday season. And so Kokulo Day was born, unfortunately something that we cannot celebrate every year, as it will be some time before we return to Khao Lak. Dear reader, if you are in Khao Lak, on whatever date, please schedule a nice Kokulo Day by visiting this fantastic beach resort in the middle of Khao Lak.
Where in Khao Lak is Kokulo Beach Club located?
You can find Kokulo Beach Club at Bang Niang Beach in Khao Lak. The location is close to the International Tsunami Museum and the Bang Niang Market. This beautiful beach club is part of La Vela Khao Lak, an insanely good looking and modern four-star resort where we will definitely stay during a future visit to Khao Lak. Maybe in 2024 when we have a visit to the Phang Nga region in the planning again.

The beach club itself
Kokulo Beach Club is a particularly beautiful venue that is open daily from 10:00 to 00:00. At Kokulo, guests can choose between a dip in the salty water of the Andaman Sea or a dip in the freshwater pool that overlooks that same sea. Around and even in the pool, sunbeds and lounge cushions have been placed where guests can lounge happily. Guests visiting Kokulo Beach Club can also take a seat at one of the many tables on the terrace or inside the beach venue.
Delicious food and beverages at Kokulo Beach Club
The food and beverages at Kokulo are of excellent quality and are cooked daily with fresh ingredients. You have to pay for this, but still we think that you don’t pay too much at this amazing beach club in Khao Lak. The staff takes service seriously, something that is certainly important for a nice day/ evening at the beach during that well deserved holiday.
Just for fun, we’ve put together a sample of a day for two people, so you can get a better idea of what’s possible at this top spot! How about this: You start the day with a refreshing fruit shake and at lunch we share a salad with tuna sashimi and a portion of chicken satay. Want a beer? No problem. Later on this sun-drenched day, you order a club sandwich and a cheeseburger with a soft drink of watermelon, for example, from your lazy lounger. Finally, the evening ends with two pizzas and a cocktail. For all this you spend no more than 3,000 THB. A nice price for a whole day of relaxing at one of the most beautiful beach clubs in Khao Lak.
The entire menu can be found through the Kokulo Beach Club website.
One thing we really like about Kokulo is that they have a drink deal for its guests every day. Namely, you can purchase the Bar Package for 800 THB. This means that for three hours you can drink unlimited wine, Chang beer and soft/fruit drinks. Of course, at Kokulo Beach Club you can also order delicious cocktails and other drinks.
On Fridays, Kokulo Beach Club offers a Japanese buffet for 990 THB per person and on Saturdays there is a BBQ Seafood Buffet for 1,250 THB per person.
We still don’t know whether it was pure luck, or that they had heard through the grapevine that we had created Kokulo Day as a special day for a feast… At Kokulo Beach Club there was a real party on that Wednesday, December 29, 2021! That evening an Andaman Southern Buffet was organized, such a great timing where we literally fell with our noses in the butter…
They served whole lobsters with herb butter or butter sauce, but also corn cobs topped with salted butter. As some of you already know, we are sushi and sashimi lovers and there was more than enough variety to be found there as well. Of course there were many more delicacies from the sea to be enjoyed. Fish, oysters, mussels, crab, shrimp, you name it, it was all there.
Of course we also tasted different types of (prepared) meat. Like juicy lamb chops from the grill, tender steak, marinated satay or perfectly prepared pork and tenderloin. Rather go for the vegetables? Don’t worry, they were thought of in abundance as well. From salads to sauteed greens and from baked (sweet and ordinary) potatoes to crispy fries.

The nice thing about this kind of buffet is that you can taste everything from different countries (also what you do not know). Think of countries like Japan, Australia, France, Italy and of course Thailand. Kokulo Day was a true (inter)national feast and we were at the party!
This festive Kokulo evening consisted of the following “stages”:
- Unlimited drinks (no alcohol, but we ordered two cocktails as an extra)
- Unlimited enjoyment of the huge buffet
- A fantastic fire show
- A table reserved for two
Together we spent about 4,000 THB including tip, a nice price for a day / evening that we will not soon forget. Long live Kokulo Day!
There are many more themed buffets taking place at Kokulo Beach Club, so keep a close eye on their Facebook page if you are in Khao Lak.
Romantic dinner at the beach
A more intimate approach, or something to celebrate when it comes to love? At Kokulo Beach Club, they make sure you can have a romantic dinner on the beach. Imagine, you together with the love of your life, your feet in the soft sand, the gentle whispering sea in the background, your glasses being poured with a delicious wine. All this while you are all alone at a table on the beach surrounded by candles… At Kokulo in Khao Lak you can! Enjoy a three course meal, specially prepared for you. Mmmm you will love it!
For that nice spot on the beach you will have to make a reservation. You can find the details at the bottom of this article.
Regular performances are held at Kokulo Beach Club where different types of music are played. There are evenings where DJs play House music to evenings with famous Thai bands. The night we visited this hip beach club it was a DJ who performed together with a saxophonist.
The famous Thai fire shows, if you don’t know them then you must have experienced at least one while visiting Thailand. In our case we have lost count of the amount of fire shows we have seen in Thailand. On Koh Tao, Koh Phi Phi and Koh Lipe, among others, we entertained ourselves with amazing fire shows, but the show we saw at Kokulo Beach Club was of a completely different caliber….
The fire show was performed by a team of five and lasted longer than we were used to. Various techniques and props came along, treating us to a fantastic fire show. The sparks literally flew off this amazing act….
What makes a visit to Kokulo Beach Club in Khao Lak so enjoyable is the combination of factors. The friendly staff that made us feel at home from the moment we arrived, an excellent buffet with quality and tasty dishes, the nice drinks (cocktails and mocktails) and to top it all off, an evening full of entertainment and fun.
Thank you to the team at La Vela (from president to the team responsible for the fire show and from bar / kitchen staff to floor manager) for this great day / evening on 19-12-2021.
