Came here to spend the evening having drinks on the beach as we heard this was one of the best 'nightlife' places in samui, the atmosphere was good and the entertainment on the beach was also good, the problem was the people walking around trying to sell you tacky stuff and worst of all, having an iguana put on your...

I have visited this place few times for party with my friends, good place to have party but not the place to leave when you are going to vacation. I didnot stay in the hotel, but I will not choose this place for staying, too loud and not peaceful to stay. But good to have party there.. They have many...

Although I visited this resort during the grievance period for the king, there was still a lot of fun to be had at this resort. Definitely geared towards a younger crowd, with great house music, awesome shows on the beach and a night life that goes to into early morning hours. I could see great potential for this place during...

The fire show (I don't know what it is called) is good as well. Nice party btw :) One thing though: The wifi is very slow inside our room :/ But I...

We stayed at a neighbouring hotel and spent a few nights at Ark Bar. The place is amazing! Friendly staff, reasonably priced drinks, and awesome fire acrobats keeping everyone entertained. The one thing that really put a dampener on our evenings was the men walking around with the bearded dragons. We watched how they were dropped on the floor, flung...

What a place to be if you are in a mood of long party!!! The place is right where the action is. Comfortable rooms to stay. You are definitely going to get the thumping sound of music in your room but the sound was not at all disturbing for us.
