We were there for new years. We had a great time. The music was excellent and drinks were sold by small buckets. They also had fire works for the new year's eve, and human fire shows by the beach. This place is for party people would't recommend if you want some quite, peaceful mind.

Went here with 6 friends great place to meet and party on the beach every night. Hardly brought cocktails here as they were cheaper across the road. The rooms were fine was only in there to sleep. Bathrooms were good. Pools were great to lie around during the day. Easy to walk into the busy street where plenty of places... More

We stayed at this hotel knowing it was a party hotel, so didn't expect much. The room was less than average, but adequate for our stay. being a party hotel, expect loud music and even when the it stops, the party doesn't. Drinks are cheap but the food is average. If you're there for the beautiful people then this place... More

Me and a mate (21 years old) stayed for 3 nights and had an unbelievable time. It's party party party here so if you want to sleep early then I wouldn't recommend.

Stayed here for one night on the way to koh pang yang. Music was banging and the atmosphere was friendly and buzzing. Fire dancers and performers on the beach added to the atmosphere. If you up for a party night head here. Guy playing saxaphone while DJ mixed a set was awesome :)

Ark bar is ideal for anyone looking for a place to party. Loud music reverberates through every part of the hotel, including restaurants, pools, beach and unfortunately sometimes the guest rooms. I would advise anyone staying at this hotel to book a room as far away from the action as possible or alternately, invest in a good set of earplugs.... More

Stayed here for 4 nights and wish that I could have stayed longer. Big beach party every night with a fire show. Good dj and sound system. Room was nice too - clean and a good size (premier deluxe). Ate there several times. All food was delicious both thai and European also great (Aussie?) pies. Will definitely stay again!

We had heard a lot about this resort's pool parties during the day and beach parties at night, so we had to check it out. We came here for the beach party and it was rocking. The DJ was playing great music, there were fire shows and overall the place had a good vibe. The drinks are pricey even if... More
