The Waterfront was just what we were looking for: Koh Samui at its best. The Waterfront is quiet, beautiful and very well run! A low-key resort feel without all the glitter and crowds and trance music! It's walking proximity to Fisherman's Village, beach dining and local flavor of Koh Samui is ideal. The staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast each... More

We chose this hotel as it was close to the airport and how glad we are that we did. It is on the very edge of the Fishermans Village, a busy, vibrant place, full of interesting little shops and stalls, with a restaurant or bar every yard or so. We opted for a de lux room which was on the... More

In short, we love The Waterfront. Family friendly, with superb staff, a laid back atmosphere and all the thoughtful touches you really need; only enhanced by the kind of friendly service that makes such a difference to a holiday. Staying here means you really are in the best corner of Samui. As much as I'd love this to stay a... More

Just returned from our stay of 3 weeks at The Waterfront have been 4 times in 5 years . Robin and Sue and all their lovely staff never fail to look after you. The new pool is a delight with room to swim and great chairs and umbrellas to rest in round the pool, or if you prefer plenty of... More

Robin and Sue run an excellent boutique hotel, they have extended the swimming pool this year and added umbrellas, which now completes this fantastic hotel. It is like our second home, we meet many other repeat visitors each time we go. Around the outside bar at night, it is a an excellent spot, discussing many issues with other guests and... More

You felt like a member of an extended family right away. The beach was the only problem for swimming but it was just a short walk along the beach to swim. Everything else was perfect. This is an ideal resort for disabled travellers as I could come and go from the hotel through the garden without having to get help... More
