If you're in Samui, then stay at Ark Bar! Mar 07, 2013
Ark Bar is right in the center of Chaweng beach and the beach parties are incredibe! The swimming pool/bar is great too and I met so many like minded travellers and genuine people.

Its close to all the major retailers, shops and close to some great clubs/bars such as green mango, hollywood and soundproof.

The rooms are clean, quite spacious and the service is excellent. I have travelled to a few places but Ark was definately my favourite in Thailand!

Nice hotel. Does have a young crowd Feb 26, 2012
Great place to stay if you want to be close to the main night life in Chaweng.

Stay in Ark Bar 3 though the newest wing. Rooms are nice with TV and DVD player.

Ark Bar has its own resturant and bar on the beach which gets very busy at night. Its great to drink smoke a shisha and meet other people.

The resturant food was okay. Defently can find better.

Pool was nice.

We hired scooters from the shop just next to reception which was very cheap and convinent.

Dont book any tours from the hotel as the charge full price, if you go on the street to the tour agency normally can get it for half to three quarters of the price.

Would defnelty stay here again.

Center of all parties! Jun 27, 2011
If anyone wish to stay in center of all the parties and so called happening places in Koh Samui, Ark Bar is the place. Ark Bar is right in the center of Chaweng beach and has an awesome on beach bar which plays music 24/7.

Bang opposite and close to Ark Bar is burger King, Mc D, Pizza Hut, Starbucks, Green Mango and main Go Go Bars.. good places to shop around and some nice places for massage.

Rooms are well made, clean and lighted. Almost the kind of rooms I like. (Ark Bar 2 & 3)

Ark Bar 1 is the old resort and rooms are not worth the money you pay. SO try getting rooms in Ark Bar 2 or 3.

Better than I thought Sep 29, 2010
We rocked up to the Ark Bar without booking any accommodation as we originally planned to stay at the P&P Samui which was 2 doors down but happened to have construction going on at the time.

This was May 2010 so a couple of months before peak season. We asked to look at the rooms and were very impressed for 1000 THB per night. There was a fridge, in room safe and nicely decorated room. Make sure you get a room towards reception as even during the day when we were shown room number 1 which is closer to the pool, bar and beach, the music (techno) was quite loud. We eventually occupied room #10 on the ground floor.

First thing, as usual, we decide to have a beer. The Ark Bar beachfront is beautiful, lounge chairs everywhere with a table in between. It was very very pretty.

The Ark Bar is only a minute away from the nearest 7/11 which is our fave spot to stock up on beer. A fave breakfast place is Khao San Cafe. It's a 30 second walk on the left after the Ark Bar driveway entrance heading towards 7/11 and it does the best and cheapest breakfast. The staff there even recognised us from our trip in 2008.

Ark Bar is only a couple of minutes away from Green Mango Soi where the party is at every night. We would stay here again.

Affordable comfort by the beach for young people Sep 07, 2010
I'll strongly suggest you to stay at this hotel if luxury is not a must. I stayed at this hotel for 8 nights. Its quite but absolutely in the center of all action and night life. Its very joyful in the evening. You can have your dinner and start drinking until you go to the clubs.
