Just spend 12 days here and had a wonderful time. The staff here are great and very friendly. They have a wide range of food to suit everybody and the beach parties were awesome. The music does go on to about 2am so if u want sleep just book a room closer to the reception away from the noise which... More

The ark bar is fun for drinks & beach party's but DO NOT stay here! Guests get treated appalling and perhaps due to all the pissed up tourists. We stayed there for 4400 Thai Bhait a night and got charged for using towels to wash out face! Charged 500 Bhait on check out for the privilege! Standard showering necessity!! Disgusting!... More

Rude waiters that get angry when you say you want to wait a little bit ordering... They continue relentlessly to ask you what you want to order in intervals of no more than 2-3 minutes... Very Unbecoming

I found the nightlife in Chaweng beach pretty rubbish until i worked out this was the place to be. The music plays all day and the party picks up from around midnight with people mingling and dancing on the beach and watching fire shows. The drinks are pricey for the resort (150 baht cocktails, 600 baht buckets!!) but compare that... More

Ark Bar was by far the noisiest hotel we stayed at, however if you are looking for a place to party this is it. They have a great entertainment area and the restaurant caters for everyones appetite. The location is great and on the beach. But if you are looking for a quiet luxurious hotel this is not it, the... More

The hotel is in amazing location, and the pool/beach parties are also amazing, however it is extremely noisy and after 3 days, you feel your brain is about to pop out from the noise, and whats worse is that we actually stayed 10 days. towards the end, i was so exhausted, i had to go sleep at my friends hotel,...
