We arrived to Koh Samui, the hotel was supposed to pick us up. It took time to find the driver, he wasn’t were they told us he would be and we needed assistance finding him. When we arrived to the hotel the check in was fast and efficient. We received the room and we needed to

Dear inbarstar, It was very nice to meet you and your friend and I would like to thank you both for coming to stay with us and for taking the time to leave your feedback here on TripAdvisor. So glad to see that you had a great time with us in the pools and on our nice clean beach and that the music and atmosphere really gave a great kick-start to your vacation on Samui. I must apologize for the way things were handled during pickup and when you required assistance fixing the hot water shower. If the problem did not get resolved, we should have provided you with another room with a working shower so we are at fault for not providing you with a better room and I am sorry for the inconvenience this caused. On your next potential visit, I hope to run into you again and hope that our team will give you an even more enjoyable stay. Best Regards, Hotel Manager

I went there to see some friends. The place has different bars... Parties on the beach à swimming pool and nice food. I have tried the Hawaiian Burger. After 15 days of pad thai that burger was like a present from God. Lol. Nice place for chilling and have some good times.

Dear Valeriano V, Thank you for stopping by and for your kind review. We're glad you had a great time on our beach and in the bars and our Hawaiian burger hit the spot and was just what you were looking for. One thing that guests here are guaranteed is that they will never go hungry with the restaurant open until two in the morning. Hopefully, you can come back again for some more fun in the sun the next time you are in Samui. Best wishes, Hotel Manager

We stayed here in June 2018. This place was filled with mostly young crowd from all over the world. They have around 350-400 rooms with 3 pools out of which 1 is the party pool. The location is best as its in the middle of Chaweng beach.

Dear Paulp7385, Thank you for your honest and thorough feedback outlining your 4 day stay with us and the experience you had during that time. I am happy that you found the location of our property to be convenient so that you could make the most of your time here and have access to all the main attractions at your fingertips. I would like to apologize for the inconvenience you had on the beach being approached by outside vendors. We cannot always control who comes in to sell things since our beach area is over 150 meters long and it's public area, and quite often people walk through our section of the beach to get to other parts of Chaweng and can easily leave and come back again. In any case we will still try our best to manage this, along with the other points that you mentioned, and hope you will come back to enjoy our fireshows on the beach with some great music to unwind to on our next Samui holiday. thank you again for your time. Best wishes, Hotel Manager

Dear Connorsky, Thank you for the interest in Ark Bar Beach Resort and your questions. 1. We have the best option for you as 2 rooms with connecting door between each other - it will be enough space for all of you and it's far from the party. 2. We don't have much guests with Kids, but Chaweng beach and next door hotels have lots of Kids and usually during the day time we have guests with kids in the restaurant and pool areas. If you have more questions please don't hesitate to contact us directly by phone, email or here. Kind regards, Anastasia

No, but seating is first come first served! With buildings on either side of the pool this must be taken into consideration.
