Haven't stayed in this resort, however I used to party here during my stay in Koh Samui. The Dj was playing cool beats and there were animators performing the fire dance. This place is packed with tourists mainly and the location is central.

Stayed here with the wife on a stop over before catching our flight home. I wasn't expecting much but it was worse than I thought. The room was small, dirty and the shower didn't work properly. Very noisy throughout the night with party goers as its a through fare from the beach in which there are always parties. The music... More

Visited Koh Samui in Oct '14 for 4days. We stayed at another hotel but visited Ark Bar everyday cos of its amazing ambience food music and most importantly its night parties. There is always something to do or see.. u can spend an entire day at Ark Bar.. One of the most chilled out places at Chaweng beach

We stayed at a different resort and would venture into town every night. We accidentally stumbled across Ark Bar looking to hang out in the beach. We quickly found out that it was party central here. The resident DJ was dropping sweet tunes and the atmosphere was awesome. Not everyday you get to party on a beach and wade into... More

I picked this place for the location and was not disappointed. Located in the center of the beach and a block from restaurants and bars aplenty. Beach bar rocks from 10:00 to ? (I couldn't stay up). The rooms are clean but need a paint job bad especially the bathroom. Not the cheapest hotel but the best located party resort.... More

This place is the worst hotel I've stayed at in Thailand. Had I not booked a no cancellation room on Expedia by accident, I would have left the first night. First, the ridiculous list of charges they have if you lose a towel, an ash tray, etc ... is out of control. 500 baht if you lose a $1USD towel?!... More

I stayed in this lively beach bar resort for 3 nights with a few friends. The resort is close to the beach and the nightlife is literally within walking distance. We stayed in the superior room which was cosy and comfortable and the bathroom was clean and efficient. Although we could hear the music from the pool area; it was... More

Totally disappointing place! I can only write for the bar we did not stay in the hotel. They play bad commercial techno music for very low level people. Everybody is drunken, no stylish nice people to party with. The drinks and food are overpriced. The are way better places in Chaweng to party.
