Our accommodation was terrible- the room was tiny and the bed incredibly uncomfortable, the aircon was noisy and didn't work. When I asked for an extra pillow I was charged for it and when asked for extra toilet paper, soap etc I again was told I had to pay for it. Whether you a staying at ark bar or not,... More

Ark Bar plays music from 2pm till 2am! The best parties are on Wednesdays and Fridays. I had some really great parties here. There are fire shows etc which are amazing (even better after some drinks!) and the music was great when I was there. They also have shisha (some know it as hubbly bubbly, or hookah) which you can...

We stayed at Ark Bar resort,Koh Samui for 2 nights in Dec. 2014. The triple non-smoking rooms we booked at Ark Bar 2 were very neat, clean & awesome! The balcony view was very good. The resort has a private beach with a restaurant where the best party on the island starts every evening. The swimming pool was so good... More

Come chill on the beach, with a drink in one hand and a shisha in the other. Watch the fire twirlers and be entertained. Not so fun though are the hawkers walking up and down the beach continuously asking you to buy nik naks and even worse little children (who should be in bed or being children) being used to... More

We arrived at Ark Bar with no reservation but they told us they had a room free, we had to pay a 200baht premium though as it was full moon party period. We were told the room would not be ready to view for 15 minutes but we dropped our bags and went to grab breakfast. The room was clean,... More

A great location and a massive bar with multiple service points for drinks and food etc. The staff are really friendly and when we went late one night it was pretty pumping. Food and drinks came out really quickly, and the Thai people selling goods are really well behaved in terms of not being too demanding (must have an agreement... More

ARK BAR is a beach Hotel I would say .. conveniently located in the Chaweng area. Rooms are nice specially the ones nearby the pool... and the reason is that there is all day music so u feel like having pool party all the time we stayed here for 3 nights and didnt wanted to leave..
