Close to the beach, pre full moon party location

The place to be if you want to party before heading to Koh Phangan for full moon party. Right near restaurants, bars, clubs and minimarts

Hotel location, very central to everything in Samu

Great hotel with all the facilities for a perfect holiday experience. Beach, bar, restaurants, night entertainment, club and excellent sound systems for great music. Pool tables and 3 swimming pools, wow. Very central to EVERYTHING that Samui has to offer

Awesome hotel. Enjoy the party!!

This place is awesome. If you are a boring person and want to go to bed at 9pm, look elsewhere. If noise worries you, ask to sleep in the rooms furthest from the beach. Otherwise, enjoy the venue! The beach partying is epic.. the food is good.. you never have to leave!!

Ark Bar, the coolest place to be in Chaweng!

Pros: Everything ... On the beach, nice swimming pools, excellent value for money.
Cons: Nothing comes to mind as I enjoyed my time tremendously.
Location: On the beach in the heart of the busiest street with a great variety of pubs, restaurants, malls, shops, massage parlours ... What a venue!
Excellent service and facilities, good food, friendly and helpful staff. Accommodation is very affordable and money worth spending.

A lot has changed

Pros: Food, atmosphere, pool. The beach nightlife is exceptional.
Cons: Cleanliness of the room upon check in was terrible. There was mould in the bathroom and the kicker was the charge for an extra pillow!
Location: Chaweng is the most happening part of Samui, great choice of food and nightlife.
Stayed here three years ago and it was awesome. This time, not so much.

Me and my boyfriend enjoyed our stay, it was close and handy to the night life. The only thing I did not like much was the room was situated to close to the music happening on the beach, great during the day, but makes it hard to slept at night
