    On the beach and on the middle of shopping area. Nice atmosphere, crowded but quite. Very good bar restaurant on the beach, confortable and trendy. Wifi free and all facilities around.

    The hotel was centrally located on Chaweng beach which was fantastic! It was on the main street so restaurants, bars, shops etc were all walking distance. The hotel opens onto Chaweng beach so there is instant beach access and there are beach beds supplied by the hotel. The room design was both modern and Thai. Overall great value for money!

    The pillows were uncomfortable.

    Great position and loved attentive staff. Junior suites are the best!

    Prices in terms of drinks were a little pricey compared to other bars. No hairdryer in the room was a little strange.

    The Ark Bar rocks! Last time I came to Samui I stayed down the opposite end of Chaweng Beach and I remember walking up the beach and stumbled across The Ark Bar with it's dining on the beach, great service, live DJ and fantastic Bar facilities.. So on my return I decided to book my stay for 9 nights at The Ark Bar and everything mentioned above lived up to my expectations.. the staff are very polite, friendly and attentive, the facilities are modern and clean, the food is out of this world and the live DJ at night is awesome! Location is great too, just near to the Green Mango and shopping area of Samui :-)

    Absolutely nothing to complain about - loved it?! :-)

    We've been very happy with the hotel. Only one thing: we stayed two nights and on the second day the room wasn't made by cleaning staff, although we put the sign "please make up room" out that day. Everthing else was just great.

    Ark Bar is in a good location which is about the only good thing I can say about it. The restaurant attached wasn't bad either although pricey and nowhere near good enough to make up for all the rest of the shortcomings of the rest of the hotel.

    The rooms were dark, dingy and smelly. I had to buy air freshener just so I could stay in the room. Hotel staff were rude and unhelpful. It was so bad that I didn't even want to be in the room at the end of a long day. I cut my trip short and forfeited two nights at the hotel nonfundable I hated it there so much. It was one of the worst places I have ever stayed.

    Very clean rooms, friendly staff, amazing location. Restaurant has great food for breakfast lunch and dinner. I believe it is the hub of Samui

    Perfect location, beside the sea and the bazaar. Great music in the beachside bar day and evenings. Beach party every Wed if you like that sort of thing. Simple but convenient, friendly helpful staff. A great place to stay when on the paradise island of Samui.

    Relaxing on the beach all day. Such a great location and great opportunity to meet fellow travellers.

    We loved the hotel - only issue was with the bathroom, we did not like the shower as it was more of a tap that just sprayed water around the bathroom which took a long time to dissipate.

    The location was great and having breakfast included was awesome!

    It would be great to have more group activities for small groups of travellers to meet each other.

    Location is perfect and most of the staff are helpful and friendly. The restaurant at the back is awesome with a huge selection of food.

    The guy at the front desk at night is always asleep, so quite a few times I had to go around and get my key from behind the desk myself which makes security a bit of an issue as anybody could go around and get anybodys key. Bathroom is a little small and our hand basin was leaking water onto the floor.

    Location

    The staff were incredibly unhelpful and the junior suites very basic and very noisy.

  • Couple

    Location's good. Doesn't get better than this if you're looking to be close to the beach and the center of all activity.

    The rooms are basic and so is the service. You're trading off luxury for location when you choose this place. If you can ride a bike, moving around the island is so easy that I'd recommend staying at one of the larger resorts and visiting this stretch just to party.

    Center of everything

    A bit bate and switch, one hotel, three different star for standard, superior a nd suite. Not one fixed standard but three very different standards, not pleased a out it at all. Nothing superior about the room. Just average. Surprised I ate the same breakfasst as everyone else, at least that was not cheaped out,

  • Group of friends

    The staff were great, facilities are beautiful, and the location is amazing. Plus the rate was pretty cheap as well especially considering what you get. I'd highly recommend it.
