I loved my stay at The Waterfront. The location is outstanding, just a few minutes away from the center of Fisherman's Village. I stayed for 10 days and didn't want to leave. The staff and the guest were very friendly. I had my own little bungalow with a nice view of the pool and the sea. The breakfast was lovely... More

A fantastic location in Bophut - just on the edge of Fisherman's Village and right on the beach. 100 metres from the restaurants and bars. Fantastic local restaurant directly opposite the front entrance. The owner is a great guy who really knows what customer service is. Love reading daily copies of the Daily Telegraph over breakfast. Rooms are spotlessly clean... More

My new wife and I spent 3 weeks touring Thailand as our honeymoon in May/June 2014. We travelled out to Thailand with no fixed agenda and spent a few days in Bangkok and Chiang Mai before heading down to Koh Samui. We had stayed at a neighbouring resort just up the road for 3 nights and had planned to head... More

My husband and I stayed in #7 (2 bedrooms and a living room) for 5 nights in early October. Very peaceful and a mere 5 steps to the beach. The location of the hotel is also great - if you want peace and quiet. However, walk 5 minutes up the road and you're in the fun and interesting Fisherman's Village.... More

The Waterfront is still the best place to stay in Bophut by far. We stayed in the Ibis for 2 nights before returning to The Waterfront 1 week later for 3 nights and there's no comparison. Everything that we enjoyed in the past is still evident at The Waterfront that all the newer, much, much larger run of the mill,... More

Well presented boutique hotel near the Main Street of Bo phut, very helpful friendly staff. Beautiful views across the bay from the pool and outdoor dining area. Makes a very good base for exploring the rest of the island and 15 minute taxi ride into the main town of chewang. It's a must try if you're on a budget. Did... More

Superb location - right on the beach at the quiet end past Fisherman's Village. Only 5 minutes to excellent restaurants and shops. Very friendly and helpful staff - in particular the manager who assisted us with tour arrangements. He always had a big grin on his face and a very infectuous laugh. We had a nice big room with view... More

This hotel's main advantage is it's location- it is beach front and walking distance to many restaurants in Fisherman's village. However, the beach in front of the hotel is not swimmable for much of the year, which decreases it's benefit. The view is pretty, but no views from the rooms. The rooms were fine, nothing special. Breakfast was okay but... More

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
