I have stayed in Samui several times and thought give Ark Bar a try. For a 2000 baht standard room it is really not worth the money.
Rooms outdated, Tv not much signal or channell, have to constantly get new internet codes from reception, dark red walls in room which makes them very dark, curtains dirty and no phones in rooms.
THERE IS MAJOR BUILDING WORK GOING ON NEXT DOOR.
Food very good and best Thai Curries in Samui at the restauarant.
Good central location but you can get far more for your money room wise else where.
No special touches made this 40 pound for a standard room- there is 3 pools on the upside but you can use these if you don't stay here as long as you drink or eat.
No need to start building work that shakes your room at 8 in the morning in a party resort.
Have moved elsewhere in Chaweng for rest of month.
