The title of the review really ought to sum it up. Seven years and probably ten visits. It's a great place to chill out and watch the waves go by. Just what we need to get away from it all. Our room was comfortable and kept spotless by the cleaning team, all of whom have been at the hotel since... More

Last minute Easter holiday and this hotel was recommended by a friend who had stayed several times previous. We had previously stayed in Koh Samui, just outside Bophut and knew the great location of this small hotel. From the moment we were met at the airport it was like being with friends. A great welcome start. This is very much... More

This review is looong overdue but better late than never. This is an excellent hotel and has been very good to us when we stayed there in 2012. (I know, I know, but I said this review is long overdue). They do deserve to be recognized for their good work. First of all, we were picked up from the airport... More

Having stayed at The Waterfront for four consecutive years we were due to stay again in March only we were unable to travel to one of our preferred hotels in Thailand. Like numerous trippers who stay at the delightful Waterfront many return to relax and enjoy the hospitality provided by Robin, Sue, Michael and all their Thai employees. What makes... More

We spent a wonderful 3 weeks plus at the Waterfront in February, following a blissful fortnight last year. My wife made sure I re-booked for next February. Pity it is so far in the future as I watch the miserable weather forecast whilst writing this. We enjoyed every minute and do not have a single complaint. Well, the shower stopped... More

Fantastic stay at Waterfront! You certainly cannot beat this - its fantastic.

Fisherman's Village is lovely - quaint, just wants needed. We went... More

We have just booked our 6th month-long holiday at The Waterfront for 1906. The fact that so many reviewers go there year after year shows what a wonderful holiday you can have at this little gem of a destination. We have travelled to many places and have yet to find any hotel which lavishes so much attention on their guests.... More
