FAb, fab, fab, fab!! We loved the hotel so much that we extended our stay by 9 days - a total of 27 days in all! We were met by Michael, the son of the owners and a great guy, who gave us a guided tour of Bophut and the Fisherman's Village. After our "Welcome drink" we were shown to...

On reading some of the more recent reviews namely 'chelseacasual' (is that a joke name or what)and the other one star review I can only surmise that the Waterfront is a victim of its own success and these reviews have somehow been posted by the opposition who are jealous of their success. How else can you explain remarks that bare...

Our family just returned after a great stay at the Waterfront. We booked the family bungalow which was perfect for a family of four with two children. Michael was right there to pick us up at the airport and give us a quick drive thru of the local village of Bophut. Upon arrival Robin gave us a quick overview of...

our second trip to Koh Samui and 2nd stay at water front. Staff is wonderful and late night chatting at the bar with other guests is nice as well. Their pool is always at a perfect temperature and hanging in the hammacks with a Singha can fill the day!! The fact that i had to go home was the only...

I stayed at the Waterfront with my husband in April. We booked it after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. This was our first visit to Thailand and we were unsure of what to expect. We spent the first part of our trip travelling around Bangkok and Chiang Mai and then moved to this hotel for some relaxation. Relaxation was exactly...

We stayed here last October for two weeks, having read the reviews on tripadvisor. Booking was easy and stress free thanks to Robin. It was out first time in Thailand so we were unsure what to expect in terms of culture, food and general cleanliness. Firstly, the airport was amazing, and we were collected by Michael and taken to the...

Just come back from 2 weeks at the Waterfront in gorgeous April sunshine. Difficult start when our luggage was partly lost in transit by plane, but we were reassured by Robin and Sue that it would turn up in a few hours – ‘it always does’ - and sure enough it did exactly that. Lovely air-conditioned room off the main...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Family run, small, select and peaceful, yet only steps away from excellent restaurants, bars and boutiques.All rooms are beachfront and the view of the sea and outlying islands is spectacular. Many guests extend their stay, recommend us to others or return themselves, often to meet other guests who have now become friends. Its like coming home, they say. Lots of little touches to make you feel welcome including free pick-up and free internet. ... more   less
