The personalised service of Sue and her staff is unsurpassed. In all of our travels around the world we have never been so warmly welcomed and looked after during our stay. Traveling to a foreign place where you don't know the language or the customs can be daunting and the crew at waterfront made sure we were brought up to speed. Suggestions on where to eat, the best tailor and all the assistance we needed with anything we asked about was just the beginning. We'd highly recommend this joint to anyone who is looking for a fantastic stay on Koh Samui. We'll be back.

Room Tip: All are Same Same!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We stayed at the waterfront hotel at the Bo Phut Beach in April 2012 and I must say we enjoyed a great service. Starting by beeing picked up by the hotel manager at the Airport, on the way to the hotel your shown the Fishermen's Village and given some recommendations about good restaurants. Once we arrived at the hotel we were given a warm welcome by the owner which was really lovely, the atmosphere is very friendly.
The rooms very nice, you have everything you need even botteled water is provided (free), I liked how everything was decorated and arranged.
The staff is extremly helpfull (for instance if you wanted to go on a trip to the national park or rent a motor bike) and the food cooked at the hotel is very tasty (and it's not expensive at all).
The only thing was a little bit disappointed about was the beach, you couldn't really go swimming in the sea as it was very shalow and there were some sort of rocks so that you easly cut your feet. But you can go to chaweng (by motor bike or taxi), ko tao or the maritime national park (organised tours) and besides the pool at the hotel is nice to stay at too.
Don't expect a big breackfast buffet but you can choose from a broad assortment of dishes which they will cook for you and there's fruit and fruit juices.
Overall I would deffenitely recommend the hotel to anyone visiting Ko Samui, no matter you are travelling with kids, by yourself or as a couple.

Back home in Poole now after an amazing trip to Thailand - the highlight of our trip was undoubtedly our time in Koh Samui at the Waterfront. Sue treated us like VIP's throughout our 11 day stay - backed up by the friendliest staff I have met in Thailand. The resort is very relaxing - we spent most of our time around the pool or down at the beach. We just didn't feel the need to leave the Waterfront.
We met some lovely people during our stay which only helped to enhance our enjoyment of the Waterfront. I would recommend the Waterfront to anyone looking for a bit of peace and quiet - whilst having all the bars and restaurants just a short walk away.

Room Tip: The family rooms look directly out over the beach to the sea and then the islands.

WOW! What can I say? Robin & Sue, you run an excellent, no fuss boutique hotel especially suited for families or really anyone. Your staff were attentive, kind and a joy to be around with your facilities peaceful and a home away from home. We felt like we were welcomed into your home, not just a number, and that you were genuinely interested in who we were. What owner of a hotel greets their guests at 11pm at night and then takes the time to talk? Your meals, massages, rooms, bar, pool etc were great and gratefully utilised. We met guests from many different countries and your hotel is ideally located to restaurants, shopping, beach etc. We are already planning our next trip back to stay with you. We actually felt like we were leaving family and were quite sad about it. Please pass our love and thanks to both you and all your staff. Hope to see you before the end of the year! With love, Bianca, Jason, Savannah and Orson

Room Tip: Deluxe Family Bungalow - right on beach, great facilities, excellent space for kids and adults. Great selection of movies!
