We stayed for 6 nights in a deluxe double.The room was clean and huge bed was very comfy. The room was slightly dated. Bathroom could do with a re-grout but this didn't ruin our stay. Nice balcony, you could see the sea from ours on the 1st floor. This is a party hotel and is the reason why you stay...

My friends and I stayed and spent majority of our time at this resort. We loved the pool, staff were really friendly and location was great with heaps of great restaurants, shops and bars. Fire show was great but bar and restaurant at ark bar was very pricey

The rooms were spacious and clean and were made up daily. The pool, which is right on the beach, and swim-up bar were great, and although food and drinks were pricey it was very yummy. The beach parties are great fun, but end at 2am and the loud music can be heard if room is close to the pool/beach.

The room was by the pool so it was impossible to sleep until 3 am because of the music. The stuff wasn't nice and they charged us for water from the minibar we did NOT use... even when they understand they wont listen. not recommended.

If you like to party, this is the place to be. We have spent there 3 nights - sadly it was during a quite rainy weather, so the parties were not really happening. There was 1 night though when the weather wasn't too bad and the show on the beach was amazing! And that was I guess only a teaser...

This is the second time my boyfriend and I have stayed at Arkbar. We both like to party and the atmosphere just before the full moon is great. Lots of like minded people around. Great beach parties and general good fun. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The closer the room to the pool/beach the louder the music so...

Best place to party in koh samui on a regular basis. Huge beach, awesome vibes, a bit pricey for my taste but the people there were great. Gonna be hard for folks looking for relaxation as the music is absolutely jamming.

We didn't stay here but we came here for the night life, amazing pool and huge bar across the beach the place looked very posh. Great night! It's quite central to other bars and restaurants, but the area is more expensive if you've got a travellers budget
