Ark bar is always goid idea! First of all because almost everyday it is full of good-looking people. Secondly, interesting fire show, especially when you have a chance to be part of it! And finally, you always could spend some time just sitting on sunbeds with drink and shisha if you do not want to dance in a crowd and...

It's a very lively beach bar. I can imagine the rooms being loud because of all of the noise at the bar. They have a fantastic for show on the beach it's really eye catching and great to see. They play more EDM music which is not my thing I prefer commercial and R and b music.

This hotel is in a great location and has a great party vibe. Rooms are clean and spacious, and the facilities are great. The bar is fun and seems to be a popular location...

If your idea of a good holiday is pumping music, noisy guests, shouting farang, even noisier staff, noisy aeroplanes and high density living then stay here and, as a youngster you will have a great time. So, why on Earth would Asia's Boutique Airline choose to house 200 of us here last night due to flight cancellations? At THB 4,200...

The vibe here at Arc Bar resort is awesome! Feels like spring break. Tomorrow is New Year's and the area is packed. Many new people today on 30 December. The hotel on the other hand is actually a big dump. Wow, please lower your expectations dramatically if you want to come to Arc Bar Beach Resort. Cheap decor, smelly bathroom...

As a large group out for a hen do, we wanted somewhere fun but not too lively! The Ark bar was the perfect place. Offering fantastic food and a nice bar, we loved it! The DJ played a mixture of songs which turned out to be a hit for our group as there was a variety of ages. It was...
