This was a fab hotel, our room was beautiful and clean, we were greeted by the staff and had everything explained to us (facilities etc). There were DVDs for rainy days (which we had a few) and the breakfast was great. I thought the laundry service was a little expensive compared to other places but it was convenient to have... More

We stayed at The Waterfront from 18-27th December 2014 with our teenage children. We were given the family suite, which was very spacious. The location is perfect for walking into the Fisherman's Village & the views and pool are stunning. The staff need a special mention, as they really go the extra mile, to ensure your stay is pleasant. The... More

We had a lovely week here in August 2014. The owners picked us up from the airport which was very much appreciated. Although the cot for the baby requires updating, the mattress and sheets were very clean and of good quality. The pool is lovely and the views outstanding. A short walk to Fisherman's Village which has all the restaurants... More

A hotel with a lovely relaxed atmosphere, beautiful pool and bar on the beach. Friends staying in nearby hotels, chose to spend a huge amount of time with us at the bar as there was such a lovely ambience amongst all the guests at the Waterfront. The staff is extremely helpful and accommodating. They were most helpful to book trips,... More

Enjoyed a five day stay after a few days in Bangkok. We wanted a restful time and certainly found it at the Waterfront. The service was excellent - everything we required was provided by the lovely staff. The location was really good - the hotel is situated close to the Fisherman's Village but still maintained a peaceful atmosphere. We would... More

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
