Party party
Very good party hotel.
Tyrone, au4 night trip
Ark Bar Beach Resort, Koh Samui, Thailand
Great location but won't stay again.
Second time at Ark, first thing, booked and money taken from card then on check in tell us about 3 days of planned power outages for 2 hours each day between 9-11pm first night then 11am-1pm second 2 days so no air con in rooms during this time and they knew about this, we should've been told before taking our money, they still managed to run power in the pool and bar areas to keep raking in the cash but didn't care about running the guests air cons on the generators as they'd already taken our cash. Another issue with this place is there is no quiet rooms, guests from both other hotels and Ark guests come yelling thru the walk ways at all hours. We moved to another resort once our booking finished. Won't stay Ark again, too many people yelling all hours around the room areas not being manned is enough for me to go elsewhere next time.

Best beach party
Very nice place updated rooms, pools and awesome beach bar/restraunt. Very popular place for beach and pool parties. Might not be suitable for kids as the music can be heard from rooms at night

Great place to stay
Really good accomodation - clean rooms, great aircon, good facilities, good location near nightlife. Don't stay if opposed to a bit of noise at night. Really quiet during the mornings though.
