We stayed at the Imperial Boat House on the advice of our travel agent; we were due to transfer to Koh Phangan but due to the evening arrival time of our plane, we needed to stay on Koh Samui for an evening. Check in was prompt and efficient and we were quickly shown to our Premier room. It was far... More

We stayed at the Imperial Boathouse from 29th April to 12th May 2015. We have been to Thailand before and always enjoyed it. This was our first visit to Koh Samui and, in comparison to our previous stays, was disappointing. However, we were very pleased with our decision to stay at the Imperial Boathouse and its location on Cheong Mon... More

Twenty years ago this place was a star – but then twenty years ago I was a star. Alas neither of us are what we once were and I left here feeling very, very sad. The unique selling point of the Boat House was the 36 rice barges that had been reworked and placed in the gardens as suites. Now... More

Everything was excellent including the room, the stuff, the breakfast, the beach, wifi and massage. We stayed there for 4 nights only but we wish we could stay there longer. I would highly recommend to anyone to stay there and the price is also very competitive for such a nice hotel.

My husband and I stayed at the Imperial Boathouse for 2 weeks in April. We loved the place. We stayed in one of the rice boats which was quaint and quirky. They have plenty of room for you to stretch out over 2 levels. My only criticism would be that they are slightly tired but understand that renovations are being... More

We've just returned from a holiday here and are full of praise for this lovely retreat. From the moment we arrived, to the moment the Manager escorted us to our taxi on departure day we had a perfect holiday. To begin, the area is relatively quiet and easily accessed from the quite beautiful Samui Airport, the Boathouse is established and... More

Great service, average breakfast but everything is there, free wifi, free safe, a/c, we upgraded to a garden room which was larger than normal. The hotel is well worn but everything is great for a couple of weeks, rather nowhere but there are shops 7/11 and restaurants outside the hotel. There is a free shuttle to town during the day...

What a fantastic hotel!!! First of all the hotel were happy to take our flight details and arrange an airport transfer (400 Bhat which is fair enough) Checking in was easy and staff very friendly. Room we were allocated was spacious and very clean with a balcony and very nice bathroom. Only downside was lots of palm trees outside blocking... More

Excellent, friendly, smiley and professional staff, one of the best hotels visited. Our room was upgraded to superior suite upon arrival as room we booked was unavailable. Loved Thai style breakfast although continental selection was available, happy hour every afternoon and free shuttle to nearby villages - great night market at fisherman's village.
