Ark Bar Beach Resort is almost an institution in Samui. Located right on the beach, in the central area of Chaweng, this beachside resort, restaurant, bar and nightclub describes itself as the one-stop party destination in the prime holiday destination in Samui Island - and this description could not be more accurate.
Featuring 300 rooms right by the sand, Ark Bar Beach Resort is not really recommended for those in search of peace and relaxation as most of the people coming and/or staying there have only one goal: party ‘til they drop. With two beachfront restaurants, and three swimming pools with two swim-up bars, the place has been designed for party animals. DJs, live music, fire shows, and pool parties are part of the daily programme at Ark Bar Beach Resort.

The main recommendation for mellow partygoers who would like to stay at Ark Bar Beach Resort for their vacation is to pick a room on the top floor, at the back of the resort; the closer you stay from the beach, the noisier it is until late at night. The party may have to officially end at 02:00, but hardcore punters are not yet ready to sleep so carry on talking, singing, and having fun until the wee hours.
Live music, performed by local and occasional international DJs, starts at 12:00. Everyone around the beach and the beachfront pools is in the party mood. The restaurants have an impressively thick menu hosting something for everyone’s taste, from western dishes to Thai specialties, spiced according to customers’ preferences. The drinks list counts all the usual suspects regarding beers, soft drinks, and spirits, as well as a great list of excellent cocktails.
The three main assets of Ark Bar Beach Resorts are: Firstly, its top-notch location on the beachfront and proximity to all that Chaweng has to offer regarding shopping (Central Festival Samui is a mere five-minute stroll). Secondly, its reasonable prices, whether it be for accommodation or for catering. Most of all, the quality of the service and the friendliness of the staff, who graciously handle a crowd of revellers from dusk ‘til dawn, and vice-versa.
