Stayed here for two nights. Rooms were fine, our air con was miserable and wifi dodgy at times. The best part is the pool/beach party!! The restaraunt/bar is overpriced however they do English/Irish food and drink so we were over the moon.

After first visiting in 2012 I came for my second visit in September 2014. I absolutely love what they've done with this place, really taken it to the next level. Great music all through the day and night with good food and affordable drinks as well. One of my favourite places in Thailand

Pool side bar just in front of the chewang beach seashore. Also enjoy the unique fire show which starts at around 9pm. Dance till the wee hours of morning. One of most happening night life places in the area.

This is THE place to stay if you are looking for a party atmosphere. Five of my girlfriends and I stayed here and we had twin rooms that were all next to each other. They were perfect for what we needed them for, a place to sleep, relax and shower! They were serviced every day and we were a block... More

This hotel is the place to be when in Koh Samui, Chaweng Beach. It's fairly close from the airport (15 mins cab drive). The rooms are clean, the grounds are nice and the party is on. Definitely not a place to take a family or little kids. There's music poolside all day and in the evenings the party begins. Beach... More

The hotel was good for 3 stars. Big territory, 2 pools, billiards, free wifi. Breakfast was pretty scarce, but that can be a perfect diet if you just order fruit :)) And in the evening they have great beach parties, with saxophonist, fireshow and gogo.

The Ark Bar has a fantastic location, tucked behind the madness on the Main Street but close enough to everything we needed. The staff were very friendly and helpful and printed off our boarding passes for us for free. It's a lively and fun place and has a beach party Wednesday and Friday that we would definitely recommend. However, very... More
