First time in Bophut and the location was good. Near the sea but with a busy street between the hotel and the restaurant along the beach. There are plenty of cafés, restaurants and shops there. The room was big and clean and there are two nice swimmingpools. There are enough sunbeds by the Pool, it is Just a pitty that... More

This was my second visit. I first stayed at Smile in 2013 but only for a few days and specifically to attend a wedding. This time I stayed for 8 days and loved it. It's a very laid back resort as the cottages are nicely spaced out amongst the vast greenery. There are two pools, and basically you can lounge... More

very nice hotel, friendly staff, clean and spacious bungalows, wonderful garden, 2 newly renowated swimming pool.Hotel is located in the middel of the village, however you don't feel it when you are inside the resort. We (family with 2 small kids) stayed there for 16 nights.

This was our third accommodation on Koh Samui and we were disappointed we didn't stay longer. This place was excellent value for money, well located as the first accommodation next to the township. We stayed in a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom villa in a more traditional Thai style, yet still with modern necessities like A/c and basic kitchen. Clean, private... More

Stayed here for 14 days in a superior bungalow. The room was very dark, but comfortable and clean. Hair dryers are provided in the rooms and the water pressure is good. The gardens are beautiful and very well maintained. This complex provides breakfast in a building beside the beach, and there is something for everyone. The only negative would be,... More

On arrival we were a little overwhelmed at how busy and commercialised Bohput is. Not at all what we had expected. However after touring the island we soon realised that this resort is the BEST on the island, Koh Samui isn't for anyone looking for an uncommercialized Island, tourism has had a negative effect and long gone are the deserted...

Very nice comfortable rooms in a very green (jungle style) setting. Gardens are extremely well maintained as are the rooms. Staff were relatively friendly. Breakfast was by the beach with a reasonable choice of food. Pools were very secluded but limited afternoon sunshine due to the amount of gardens and position., not much sun after 4pm. Smile House is located... More

Spent one week here in December 2015. We stayed in a family bungalow that had two bedrooms and two bathrooms. I wouldn't call the accommodation luxurious but it was clean, tidy and had everything we needed. Breakfast was included and it was excellent. Staff in the restaurant were awesome. Other staff (front office & cleaning staff) weren't as friendly which... More

We had a nice little bungalow, luckily not by the construction which was going on. Wifi never worked in the room, and wasn't very good even by the pool and lobby where it was supposed to work. Staff weren't blunt, unhelpful and definitely not "smiley", quite a hypocritical name really.... Good clean room for the price tho if a little... More

I recommend Smile House on Bophut beach. This hotel is a low cost accommodation in a great area. You eat breakfast in a building on the beach and the individual bungalows area located across the street from the beach. We booked a 2 room 2 bathroom bungalow and it was wonderful, clean, and spacious, but not very modern. At the... More
