I was here for 5 nights, my room was the main pathway to the pool and beach where the parties happen which wasn't terrible but if you are wanting to sleep request a different room. Black out curtains are fantastic! To the point that sometimes I may have slept in and missed the free breakfast - which was a really... More

We head over to the hotel after a few days in Ko Phangan. It was such an upgrade from the dodgy hotel we stayed the previous nights. I won't recommend families to bring the lil ones as it can get noisy at odd hours due to the night activities. Its walking distance to everything and if you need to travel... More

Me and a friend stayed for 4 days and found it had a vibrant lively atmosphere in the evenings with DJ entertainment, pool parties and a great location on the beach. There were 3 pools, 1 of which you could swim in in the evening at the pool party though it wasn't used much, most sat around the pool /... More

Absolutely loved this place. It is right in the centre of everything. Pool parties on Wednesdays and Fridays. Really good for young people. Stay in Superior Suites if available..they are cheaper and a lot nicer and newer. We got moved to a Delux Room which cost us more and was an older, smaller room. Rooms very clean. Wifi is brilliant..we... More

stayed here on a recent trip with a friend, spotlessly clean with happy smiling staff, we had dinner every day here always spot on, music was a little boom boom for me, but thats just my opinion, enough people seemed to like it, excellent place for the younger crowd, clean pool and bar area, great resort, thanks for looking after...

This place is utterly amazing, from the top class accommodation nestled on Chawengs beautiful beach with its three pool aimed for either relaxing or partying to the out of this world beach parties! This place is one of the most entertaining resorts I have ever been to. The fire shows are excellent along with all the music played. Brilliant pool... More

Ark Bar is a party hotel. The pool is ok but the party atmosphere is the biggest selling point. Rooms are clean, small and rather basic... little overpriced. However, the location is great. Food is pricey but very good. Great for young people but not so for families.

Unreal resort in ko samui. The room I was in was a huge room, spacious, with a big double bed, a lovely bathroom and great balcony looking out over one of the quiet pools. Music played until late, the food was nice and the cocktail's were delicious. It was right on the beach and also in the centre of the... More
