Spent about ten nights in The Waterfront and thoroughly enjoyed every moment of our stay. There's a great mix of professionalism and attention to detail but blended with a personal, informal touch. Sue and Robin are a joy to meet and their staff are excellent, within a very short time you feel right at home! Rooms are lovely and soooooooooo...

Wondering why we delayed our visit to this incredible little resort. Everything you wished for and more. Warmth, comfort and genuineness throughout our stay, which felt so personalized. Ideally located for those wishing to experience the tastes of Thai food or any other cuisine through the several specialized resaurants in Bophut Village. and yet just a short taxi-ride away from...

Well I admit I was a tad worried after some reviews here, but I needn't have been. The Waterfront was all I hoped for and more. After a week touring Hong Kong and Bangkok, we simply wanted to relax. The Waterfront was the place to do it. We were met at the airport by Michael who showed us around Bophut...

We stayed for only 1 night on our way to Ko Tao and were blown away by the hospitality of this family run small hotel. From the moment we were collected from the airport, the service was excellent and they really couldn't do enough to assist us. We were upgraded for the night and the room was just perfect. The...

If I take the time to write a review it is because I really want to share the great experience we had staying at the Waterfront for a few days, at the end of July 2009, beginning of August. The location is ideal, close enough to the little village and far enough from too much noise. Very easy to walk...

My family stayed here for 8 nights in August and I had great hopes after reading all the reviews. We were certainly not disappointed.

Is it just me or why does this place get such an incredible amount of reviews, all in English, and why are they all giving five stars? We only stayed for two nights- the place is ok but definetly not amazing- the pool is very small and right next to the bar. Also the beach isn't very nice in this...

We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a perfect experience of the beautiful Island of Koh Samui. We only stayed here for 2 nights but they were definitely the most memorable of our 2 week trip to Thailand and made the 5 star hotel we stayed at in phuket seem like a hostel.

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
