I think Ark actually appeals to a wide range of people because there are so many features here for guests who like a central position, good beach and great pools. Our Superior room was small but you get what you pay for and it had a good bathroom and even tea and coffee in the room. The breakfast was fine... More

I thought I had just stepped into a Techno Club rather than a beach resort. Party-goers would enjoy this hotel because the loud music will start from 2PM until 2AM. You can hear them in your room. You will be in party mood! Room was clean and met expectations. I cannot see the beach from my room. Reception staff were... More

We stayed here in mid Feb, the hotel was nice, the breakfast was OK. You got to pick 5 items from a set menu, there wasn't much to pick from. The staff were friendly and very helpful, rooms got cleaned every day and they did a good job of it. The music was just plan bad, their "international DJ" was... More

I can definitely agree with all the reviews here - location is fantastic - can't be more central + right on the beach + nice pool. However it is still 3 stars so get your expectations straight - rooms are pretty small, even if you take the premium deluxe room like we did, breakfast is very basic (although perfectly located...

I had very bad experience with staff. I stayed here for 3 days. At the time of check out they charged us 3000 baht extra because some of our friends visited in our room for 1-2 hours. So, they charged 2500 for that and there was little hole in umbrella of the room which we didn't even use it. They... More

Ok, truth be told I'm 55 years old and I visited this bar in the early afternoon. Not prime time or prime age for this place. It's not for me, but I'll bet my kids could have a great time there. We happened upon the bar as we walked the beach. There are three rows of chairs along the beach.... More
