Great fun environment, swimming pools, day beds, pool table, loud music, meals, shisha and fire shows. Was great fun to sit on the beach beds and have a cocktail or three and listen to the music. But be prepared to be hassled by the adults and young children trying to sell you things. Not an up market posh place, but... More

Good place to be if you like to party. 10 am the music starts finishing the night with dj's and fire twirlers on the beach chilling out smoking sheesha with friends. Then the clubs are only a short walk from there. Just dont take your toga with you. Scooter around the island if youre game, saw a few accidents. Rayban... More

We stayed with a group of friends. Staff were great, they were quick to attend to any of our needs even if it was early hours of the morning. Rooms were very clean and shower was great. Ark Bar is where the main party on Ko Samui happens so I wouldn't recommend staying here if you are with young children... More

Average room. Expensive. Nice pools. Good food and drink selection. Decent beach. Close to lots of stuff. Multitude of tours leave from here. Loud party scene at night. Fun if you're looking for a wild night. Complimentary breakfast. Onsite massages.

The best location ever!! Near many clubs and bars. If you want to a place for relax or something quiet, you should sleep here. The room is quite ok. The staff also nice, but there are many people here so the staff cannot take care all of the guests.

We were there on a wednesday night. Cool bar at the beach with a nice crowd. The drinks were reasonably priced and they played surprisingly good electro dance music. They even had some live performances like fire juggling.

Our hotel was 20 min walk on the beach from Ark Bar, but it didn't stop us to come back several times for some good food and drinks. There's always a good DJ music, lots of hot boys and girls by the pool and in the beach, very live atmosphere and after all prices at thr bar very attractive.

I had an amazing experience at Ark Bar. I didn't stay at the resort but came and partied for 3 nights. It's a big area with people for all around the world, good music and an impressive fire-show. It has a very good location as well. Would 100% come back in the future!

If you stay hear expect to drink. There's music playing all day and night at the beach and pool. You will hear it from your hotel room, but if hats what your looking for its perfect. People come here as a main party spot around this beach so it's always active.
