    The Ark bar is usually pretty full and is beachside, yet somehow manages to remain pretty intimate .A great vibe. The staff are very helpful. The general manager, mr Ken deserves a special mention for his help and knowledge of Samui

    Average room. Expensive. Nice pools. Good food and drink selection. Decent beach. Close to lots of stuff. Multitude of tours leave from here. Loud party scene at night. Fun if you're looking for a wild night. Complimentary breakfast. Onsite massages.

    It shouldn't be a problem in your room. You would not be able to drink at pool or bar.
