Just returned from my 2 week stay, and would very much like to be sat at the pool at the Waterfront still! I was picked up in an air conditioned car by 2 of the staff after a long and tiring flight, checked in, offered a drink and shown to my room. Upon my arrival, it immediately dawned on me...

Sorry for the late review - my wife and I stayed at the Waterfront for 7 nights during July 2008. We choose the resort based upon trip advisor reviews. I was disapointed from the moment I arrived but that was my fault as I did not do enough research on the place prior to my wife booking it. The owners...

Really enjoyed the view and Room 19. Robin is a great host and we enoyed our 5 days chilling out. The local restaurants are great as well. Massages below the Frog and Gecko are the ones to go for. Don't forget Larry and his steaks to die for!!

Along with two friends, my wife and I spent a week at The Waterfront, Bophut, Koh Samui. For the price, we could not fault the place. Robin and his staff were most accommodating and the service was excellent. The rooms were modern, clean and faced the ocean. There was also a small verandah out front with a couple of comfy...

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
