“Great place to catch up with friends!”
Reviewed 15 August 2014 via mobile

My gf and I stayed here last month for a week in a Premier Delux room. Ive been coming to thailand annually for a few years now and love Arkbar, but had never stayed here.
We had a great time, the room was amazing and very clean. Its true you can hear the music late at night from your room.. but we didnt mind, its not so bad that you cant sleep.
My gf loved sleeping in while on our trip, so I would go for a juice and swim first thing and watch the sunrise while floating around their great pools.
We booked a few tours from reception also, go zip lining!
Oh, nearly forgot.. you have to try the chicken parma!

Stayed August 2014, travelled as a couple

Great spot here in Samui if you are young and looking for a good time! Great bars on the beach and plenty of young people about! Very noisy if you are looking for an early night... lots of dance music playing. Very close to the main bars in Chewang beach strip

Best beach party in Samui. Full of young generations who are looking for fun! Easy access. opens till 2am. Fire show is must watch.. Very crowded and I liked that. Avoid going there if you are a lazy serious person.

If you like to party till late and if you are are not bothered about late night noises from the blasting music , the place is meant for you seriously . The rooms are decent and not very heavily priced. I found them reasonably cleaned too. We were a group of six friends and none of us complained. The resort is right on the beach with complete the party set up. You probably get a room that opens few meters away from the beach so you gotta be careful since the music will play all night and it would be loud as well. Some tourists come here just for the party and stay somewhere else. I didn't tasted their food so can't comment much on that. The only downside for me was the check out time I.e 11 am and that's freaking early. I requested the manager and he extended it to 12 am mid-day. That was not comforting though. The manager at the reception, I believe his name is TOP , was great, attentive and helpful. Overall, it was a decent experience altogether. Whether I would like to go there again , yes I would.

*** make sure look for deals on booking.com, agoda.com, makemytrip.com before getting a room here for yourself .,

If you plan on getting a good night sleep, you may wanna consider getting ear plugs or stay somewhere else, as this is a full on pool beach party hotel. Highly recommend. Traveled solo and made many new friends. I did observe a few families here but I assume they are all in the party mood. Definitely be back here as this is the place to be in Koh Samui.

Room Tip: Ear plugs, far from pool for sleep. and ground floor if you carrying many bags.

Very nice concept. Love the beach and pool parties. Nice and clean rooms and friendly staffs as well. Noisy at night due to the loud music and party, might not be suitable for those looking for a nice and quiet holiday. But for those lookin for excitement and music and lots of fun, this would be the perfect place to stay :-)
