We, my two children (11 and 13) and my partner, spent the second week of our holiday here. We arrived from hectic Chaweng to this peaceful hotel and experienced a warm welcome. We had a spacious suite with two bedrooms, living room and bathroom. We also had a nice porch with a seaview. We really enjoyed the personal and great... More

My husband and I finished our 3 stop honeymoon around Thailand at the Waterfront and we made a perfect choice going there. It was a delight! Right on the beach with a lovely saline pool and ample sun loungers both around the pool and on the beach. All the staff were friendly, helpful and couldn't do enough for you. We... More

We have just arrived home after 6 weeks at the Waterfront Hotel, we would highly recommend this hotel to anyone, great for families. It is in the quiet end of Fishermans Village with Resturants and shopping within minutes of the property. The Staff are exceptional under the leadership of owner Robin Worden, his wife Sue and son Michael. The rooms... More

We just finished a quick three nights at The Waterfront and loved it. It was a perfect small, family owned hotel right on the water. The pool and beach were perfect. Breakfast was great. The most friendly staff on the island. Every room has an ocean view! Wish we could have stayed longer.

All the staff were so very friendly, always great service with a smile, rooms were kept spotless all the time, easy walking distance to local restaurants, bars and shops, with all tastes catered for. The waterfront is off the main road, located in bophut itself, which we found very relaxing.

This is a very friendly and casual hotel that met all of our needs. The beachside location not only provided the views we were hoping for but was away from the crowds of the Fisherman's Village (but this restaurant/bar/shopping filled area is only a two minute stroll away). The breakfast was good and fresh, and although the kitchen closes early,... More

What a gem! We stayed at The Waterfront Hotel for five nights whilst in Koh Samui and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The position of the hotel is fantastic....right on a beautiful beach. The staff are really helpful. Our room was perfect, it was clean and spacious with all amenities. To top it all we had a free transfer to... More
