            Party hotel with loud music from 2 pm to 2am”
            ArkBar has grown substantially since we first stayed here in 2010. The one problem, beyond the extremely loud guests partying until 2am and later, is Wi-Fi. It has improved some each year but is not robust enough to handle the load when every guest has one or more connected devices.
            Reviewed March 03, 2019
            Dear Harold, Thank you for your multiple returns to ArkBar and for taking the time to leave feedback outlining our amenities and clientele. Yes, we do upgrade our wifi as the higher connection speeds are available to us but if a guest downloads using their device it can slow down for others connected on the same network. We will discuss ways on how we can work on this to make improvements for the convenience of our guests. Thank you again for your time and we hope to see you back again next year for another fun stay in Samui. Best Regards, Hotel Manager

            Thank you Jessica for your feedback on Agoda. ARKBar Beach Resort is an excellent choice for those looking for a central location in Samui as we are only 50 m from the main shopping and nightlife areas. We advertise our beach and pool parties to start at 2pm so as long as you can get some sunbathing time in by then you can have some rest before some fun with us. We're glad you had a good experience with us and hope to have you back in the near future. Best Wishes, Hotel Manager

            Dear Jessica, Thank you for staying with us and for writing a kind review. Many guests choose to stay at ARKBar because of our prime location in the center of Chaweng. We are located a short walk away from the beautiful beach, lively bars and clubs, tasty restaurants, and plenty of shopping. Our pool area is a bit noisy because of the pool parties we host daily. If you are looking to unwind and relax, the beach is much quieter during the day and we provide lounge chairs and umbrellas. We can't wait for you to come back and enjoy the sunshine with us!

            Really enjoyed my stay, the rooms were clean and comfortable and amenities were good. The restaurant was good, service was good and staff very friendly. Evening time on the beach was good with the exception of the never ending parade of hawkers attenpting to sell everything from pictures taken with lizards to cheap flashing toys and the usual assortment of cheap bracelets and fake tattoo's, I realise the beach is a public area but attempting to have a conversation or enjoy the brilliant fire show is constantly interupted by them.

            Good place to stay in if you are there to party, as you will hear music and people roaming around outside the rooms. Not recommended, if you wish to relax and enjoy the calm side of Samui - take a hotel/resort in the nearby and you can always visit beach/ark bar for night party.

            I booked with full knowledge this was a party resort and the music might keep me up. I didn’t have a problem with the music. I fell asleep to it every night. If you are are interested in being at or near the Chaweng night scene this hotel has what you need. I was upgraded to the Premiere Deluxe room upon arrival. The room was very nice and clean. Compared to my other stays in Koh Phi Phi and Ao Nang, this hotel was a palace! The food was surprisingly good and the food and beverage prices were on par or better than surrounding places. Would I stay again? As a 20-40 year old, no doubt about it. 45+...probably not your ideal place.

            Bad Experience (Staff stole my money)”
            I left 400 euro inside my bad and the staff took it. Even after contacting the front desk, the money did not appear. Do not go to this hotel! If the staff steals money from the bed, they might also steal it from the lockbox.

            Party”
            If you want to party and don't like sleep stay here! Music is good, pools are nice. Wednesday and Sunday are good. DJs and dancers on the beach. Good vibe. Walls are thin... We stayed on the top floor near the main pool (Deluxe room). Could hear my neighbours having a very good time! Lol. Staff are ok. Got told something different by every staff member regarding our room payment. I imagine they'd deal with a lot of drunk people so I'll let them off for not being the friendliest. Really good location. Very central, on the beach. Close to MacDonalds etc.
