I actually liked this place it had a very nice vibe to it. It is very much in the style of a boutique hotel. the staff were awesome and very attentive to a travellers needs. The beach area is not really ideal if swimming is your go and i think the rooms are a little over priced but all in... More

The Waterfront is a small boutique style hotel set in beautiful gardens on the beachfront. We stayed in the family beachfront bungalow which had two good sized bedrooms, a lounge, family bathroom and private balcony. The room was clean and well presented, and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and made us feel very welcome. The food was of a... More

My husband and I stayed at the Waterfront Bophut in May. I have stayed in a lot of hotels all over the world and think that this is up there in my top 5! Firstly, the location. The hotel is at the quieter end of Bophut, just minutes walk from an array of restaurants and bars all along the beachfront.... More

Stayed at the Waterfront in August. Found the place really relaxing. Lots of really comfy sun beds around the pool and plenty of beds on the beach as well. A few steps from our room to the pool and and beach and it was lovely to sit in the dappled shade and while away the day. Staff very helpful, breakfast... More

We didn't stay overnight but stopped here twice-once for lunch and once for drinks. The owner was very welcoming. As it was quiet season, he was happy for us to use the salt water pool. The outlook is very lovely and the beach was quiet. Lunch was nice, and fresh mango and lime juice were delicious. The hotel is not... More

We have just recently returned from our 4th stay at the Waterfront Botique hotel in Bophut Koh Samui. This hotel is situated at the quiet end of Fishermans Village with many restaurants very close at hand. The rooms are serviced daily by the wonderful and friendly staff. The grounds are well maintained along with a large swimming pool which offer... More

Thoroughly enjoyed ten days of complete relaxation. The hotel is very chilled and no-fuss whilst tending for all your needs. The perfect remedy to a busy Bhoput - both result in a balanced mix of manic and mellow. It's one of the few hotels to have a virtually deserted beach front. They're packed like sardines at the other end in... More

Spent our daughters birthday here before spending the week in Hong Kong with our son. The hotel was perfect for our needs. We asked the hotel to sort an around the island trip and it was sorted.

Old, small, outdated rooms. Very simple breakfast. The manager-guy (sorry I don't remember the name anymore) was really nice though! And I liked the little detail; bookshelf even the books were a little bit torn and old. It was really nice to read a book once in a while at the beach. Lots of British tourists who seems to like...

Well stayed March reviewed August. This is not much different to another recent low rating we received. Missing out a lot of problems caused by this booking. The reviewer had booked a beachfront room for 2 weeks upon arrival she wanted to change to an upstairs room and was displeased that we couldn't arrange it. Well this was high season... More

This English run hotel is perfectly located, 15 minutes from the mayhem of Chaweng and just on the edge of Fishermans Village, a delightful mix of top-class restaurants or street food! All within an easy walk. The hotel itself is very charming, with spacious rooms, a good size swimming pool, which is treated with salt water, no chlorine! Fabulous views... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Family run, small, select and peaceful, yet only steps away from excellent restaurants, bars and boutiques.All rooms are beachfront and the view of the sea and outlying islands is spectacular. Many guests extend their stay, recommend us to others or return themselves, often to meet other guests who have now become friends. Its like coming home, they say. Lots of little touches to make you feel welcome including free pick-up and free internet. ... more   less
