Ark Bar Beach Resort is a prominent nightlife institution in Koh Samui. Located right on the beach, in the central area of Chaweng, this beachside resort, restaurant, bar and nightclub describes itself as a 1-stop party destination on Samui Island – and this description could not be more accurate.

Featuring 300 rooms right by the sand, Ark Bar Beach Resort is not really recommended for those in search of peace and relaxation as most of the people coming and/or staying there have only 1 goal: party ‘til they drop. With 2 beachfront restaurants and 3 swimming pools with 2 swim-up bars, the place has been designed for party animals. DJs, live music, fire shows, and pool parties are part of the daily programme at Ark Bar Beach Resort.

What are the highlights of Ark Bar in Koh Samui?

Mellow partygoers who would like to stay at Ark Bar Beach Resort for their vacation should pick a room on the top floor, at the back of the resort. The closer you stay to the beach, the noisier it is until late at night. The party officially ends at 2 am, but hardcore punters often carry on talking, singing, and having fun until the wee hours.

Live music, performed by local and occasional international DJs, starts at noon. Everyone around the beach and the beachfront pools is in the party mood. The restaurants have an impressively thick menu hosting something for everyone’s taste, from western dishes to Thai specialities, spiced according to customers’ preferences. The drinks list counts all the usual suspects including beers, soft drinks, and spirits, as well as a great list of excellent cocktails.
