Every time I traveled to koh samui, I visited the Ark Bar Beach Club at least once a day, during the day for relax side of the pool and enjoy their delicious drinks, and at nights to dance and fireworkers show at the beach توی هر دوباری که به سامویی سفر کردم، حداقل هر روز یک بار را به کلاب ساحلی آرک بار سر زدم هم در روز برای ریلکس کردن کنار استخرش و نوشیدنی های خوشمزه شون و هم برای رقص و نمایش آتش بازی کنار ساحل در شب

A must visit bar, I’m a little older and I can see that to the younger crowds this place would be excellent, and maybe even to me if I were only just a few years younger ..!! 😂 was a typical beach club, DJ playing crowds around the pool and beach having fun. Drinks a little more expensive as you would expect, staff still very good. We had a drink there in the afternoon then left for the early evening and returned later for the awesome fire show..! You have to see the fire show/ beach party if you are in koh Samui no matter how old you are..! A fantastic atmosphere a great night out and so much fun..

I have never been to Ibiza but I am told the beach club attached to the resort is akin to it. Basic but clean stay , great breakfast with ala carte options and with one the best bacon rashers i have eaten. great place to hang out with friends ( wouldn't recommend family with small kids as it can be noisy )

Ark bar resort in general is a destination for a younger, party element. Having said that, the price for the rooms cannot be grumbled at. Neither can the location, the facilities or standard of the food. The staff work very hard and are very attentive. The Party cracks on till 2/3 in the morning with a fierce bass line, so it is advised to join the party or ask for a room as far away from the beach front as possible. That being said i have no complaints about the Ark bar and would stay again
