Kabang Beach Bar is a beach front all-day dining outlet with a culinary highlight from seasonal tropical produce, fresh caught seafood and Thai-inspired recipe.

Kabang is a Moken word for boat, a home for local sea gypsies of the Andaman coast. This beach bar conveys the interpretation of a folktale about Coconut Island pioneer. His adventure after the boat wreck and instinctive wisdom that helped him to stay alive.

Influenced from Coconut Island folktale, central bar structure demonstrates simple method of construction as if built from parts of wrecked wooden boats to be a temporary shelter to the unfortunate fisherman.

Color selection is a blend of deep oceanic and neutral tropical palettes. Decorating items display fishing equipment and products from the sea to hint a lifestyle of Moken sea people.
