This place is a lot of fun every night the bar closes at 2, it's a proper beach club almost like a mini full moon party every night. You'll get conned by the kids on the beach but the banter they have is worth the 100baht as they have an answer for everything. You'll lose at thumb wars, noughts and... More

ARK, is once of the most happening places in Koh same in general as a bar/restaurant as well. The food is good, its got itself at an amazing location, awesome pool view. The hotel is really clean and basic and the staff is really efficient. I love the little red walkies that they had and were quick and fast with... More

Great hotel, very central. Party atmosphere all day long, our room was far from bar area so the music didn't disturb us too much. Fantastic fire show, locals very talented! Party pool is the nicest of the 3 pools on the premisses. Breakfast not too great, had to pick 5 items from a list in the morning and it stays... More

Great hotel to stay at, I have stayed here for the last 9 years I have visited Koh Samui. Rooms are very clean and are new. Staff is very friendly, food is great and the night life and music is great! Recommend for anyone to stay at, great location as well!

Visited here during songkran holidays- love the pool and great selection of food n drinks. Thinking of staying in the huts during next visit. The pool bar was fantastic and good nightlife, very close to town centre of chaweng and close to the beach

Ark Bar is well known for it's focus on party time, it is an all day and all night beach party kind'a place. Yet the pace is un-rushed, it's relaxed and I was delighted to see that the age range is at least from 15-65, with the older crowd enjoying a little lounge music by the pool during the day.... More

Wednesdays and Fridays they have an amazing fire show, along with the thumping music, bucket drinks and crowds of farong. The show is free -- you do not even have to buy a drink -- and lasts about 1 to 1 1/2 hrs. Night I was there ran until midnight. Went on my own as a woman and did not... More

I stayed here during Feb of 2015 and travelled with 3 friends. I loved staying at the Ark Bar. It was clean and the rooms were the perfect size for us as we did not spend much time in our rooms. The accommodation was perfect as it offered 3 different pools depending on what scene you were looking for. The... More

Ark Bar is the best place in Koh Samui I would say. Great stuff, everything is clean and nice beach party's in the evening. During the day you can hang around on the beach, at the pool, play snooker or go out and explore the island.
