“Beach views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014

This was the spot for sitting and watching the day go by. Relax with a drink at the bar. Sellers walk by offering glasses, sarongs, hats, clothing you politely say not today or start bartering. They will not give you a hard time or hassle you is you don't purchase. One the beach just outside buy cooked corn on the cob 150 baht comes with bananas and sliced coconut. ARK bar has an excellent menu fries 150 baht, 6 prawns (really fresh) 180 baht, large spring rolls 160 baht. Worth a visit. Listen to the music played by DJ David Soul.

“Great food & drinks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

Food was great, service was excellent, and the cocktail list is AMAZING. And they use real cheese! Haha might not seem like much, but after a month of travelling without the comforts of home it was a BIG DEAL. Even if you are not staying at this hotel, you can cruise down and sit on one of the beach loungers, and they will bring your food and drinks down to you on the beach, so overall I had great experiences here!

“Best party place on Samui!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

This is the place to be on Samui in the evening!

Great vibes, special partys on Wednesday and Friday, fireshow, hookah, beachfront and quite affordable.

Staff was attentive, it is just there are too many people around. There are many kids walking around selling flowers, they are very sweet and my suggestion is to buy everything they sell to help them and to be bothered by them anymore :)

Enjoy your time!

“The place to be on Samui, but with kids working till 2 a.m.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

The place to be if you are looking for a party. Amazing fire shows, dancing on the beach, cheap beer and nice food. You can sit at the (open) restaurant or at the beach. The only bar that's fully packed every evening. Party stops at 2 a.m. Next time if I go to Samui I will stay in the resort too.

The one thing I really hated were the very small children wandering trough the visitors to sell their stuff. They were sometimes as young as 3 or 4 year old, working till the party stops. They don't work for Ark Bar, but they are not send away either. I found it heartbreaking to see, as a mom of two small kids.
