Low-key and unpretentious, the Waterfront has a perfect location and great ambience. Our family spent 3 nights here and we would love to come back. The hotel is small and at first a little underwhelming. It doesn’t have a big garden and the rooms are quite modest. However we very quickly found out it’s a great place for chill-out. +... More

My name is Diana. I recently stayed at the Waterfront Boutique Hotel for 16 incredible nights. Robin and Sue have made the hotel into a home away from home. After living in Beijing for more than a year, The Waterfront was like heaven. It's beautiful, well cared for, and peaceful. It is rare to hear anything from the street even... More

Robin and Sue certainly know how to make you feel welcome. They and their staff do everything they can to make sure your stay is the best it can be. The food is good, the pool is lovely, and as it is only 18 rooms you get chatting to other guests at the pool bar and everyone is like family.... More

Just back from revisiting this lovely hotel. There were four of us and we stayed in the beach bungalows. As always the place was spotlessly clean. Rooms cleaned every day with the pool and surrounding garden area cleaned / pruned all day long by the cleaning staff / gardeners. The pool area which was recently enlarged is an asset to... More

Just returned from a two week stay at The Waterfront. We had a fantastic time while there and cannot wait to return. Our bungalow was clean and comfortable and the view was amazing. Much time was spent in the well kept pool everyday. The staff were very friendly and helpful at all times. Yes, do eat at The Hut as... More

Overall, I had a pleasant time. A few caveats though, some of the rooms are on the main road. Across the street is a club that plays loud music until 11ish. If you are out and about then this is no cause for concern. I, however, wanted to go to bed earlier than that so that I could get up... More

Pool and surroundings were great and cleaned daily by the staff. Would definately recommend the Waterfront for a relaxing holiday. . Thank you Robin, Sue and Michael for an enjoyable... More

This is a lovely resort. The people are friendly, the pool is great and the location near bophut beach is awesome. Rooms are quaint and location is quite. Walking market right outside resort door on Fridays is sooo amazing. Insider tips: book tours outside the hotel, the Lamlak snorkel tour we were recommended was horrible. Try the Shack Bar and...

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
