Party time at the ark bar everyday! All staff are very friendly always saying hello and always smiling. Don't expect a quiet time here it's party central. Excellent pools brilliant cocktails and tasty sheesha in the evening. If you visit Samui you have to stay here it's a fantastic place to party!

Went to Ark bar for drinks on 2 or 3 occasions. Nice laid back seating and location right on the beach and really good fire shows. Even though the drinks are a little bit more expensive than the surrounding bars I suppose you have to pay that little bit extra to have the beach side seats.

The hotel is nice but the system by the pool is comical. Outsiders must pay to use the pool although guests of the hotel are not. A Staff member took it upon himself to bully my friends and I and insisted we paid 300 bhat each time we tried to go in beside the fact no one else was out... More

Room was not spacious but clean. Decoration was nice. But since there's party till 2:00 am it's very noisy. It's still noisy after 2:00 am too since people is going on drink, talk and sing in the hotel's all area. So, if you want to rest, it's impossible. Parties are not only for hotel guests, everybody can join from outside.

I've stayed here twice. The first time the place was being renovated & only had one pool & the rooms were being upgraded. When I returned the second time the place had transformed for the better. There are now three pools, several bars & the restaurant has vastly improved its quality of dishes. The rooms are very clean with a... More

Spent 5 nights at Ark Bar, Koh Samui and was absolutely heart broken to leave! Once you set foot in Ark Bar, you never want to leave. Our room had a wonderful view, the vibe is so energetic and the people are incredible. The room was great including a great rain shower and huge bath with a view! The staff... More

The beach party was fantastic, the music was great and the atmosphere warm and very friendly, good entertainment and DJ. I stayed here for several nights however and it was very annoying how everyone walks right past the rooms on the way to/from the beach party, the music begins at midday and you can't escape it. I would definitely recommend... More
