We should like to thank the reviewer for the kind review. However we feel we should reply to the cons that were mentioned. 1)Our pool is small, we mention this on our website and it has been on TA many times.It is just for cooling off and not for laps.If people require a large pool we are not the option.The...

We read the reviews on Tripadvisor thoroughly before booking, and we were not disappointed at all. Sue, the super friendly and incredibly organised lady who runs the show picked us up from the airport and took us on a sightseeing trip of Bophut so that we knew all the good places to eat and drink. She then checked us in...

I stayed here a couple of years back but only now writing a review as I think some are a little misleading. Yes, the hotel is nice enough but I really do not understand how this hotel can hold the position it does compared to all the great choice available on the island. The rooms were OK – clean but...

We recently arrived back from a week stay at the Waterfront and the majority of comments we read on TripAdvisor prior to booking proved to be not only helpful but absolutely accurate. What a great location. Away from the crowds at Chaweng but on the beach with a picturesque outlook and a 5 minute walk to a great variety or...

This was our second trip to Koh Samui. We visited the island 3 years ago for our honeymoon and had an amazing time, but we stayed in a different hotel. We did lots of research before booking The Waterfront but were still concerned that perhaps we should have just returned to the place we had stayed at previously. From the...

I'm so pleased we decided to stay in the Fisherman's Village, it really seems to be the lovliest place on the island. The hotel is in a great location in the village, and right on the beach, which you can see from the rooms. The hotel offers a truly relaxing experience, and the owners really do go out of their...

We stayed at The Waterfront for 8 nights as part of our honeymoon. We were made to feel very welcome as soon as we were met at the airport and this continued throughout our stay. The Waterfront is a lovely hotel run by Robin and Sue, who are utterly charming and can't do enough for you. We stayed in the...

The biggest selling point of this place is that it feels like home. There are only about 20 rooms so the place books out quickly - we tried to book nine months in advance but could not get a bungalow, but the room was great anyway. The rooms and facilities are very comfortable albeit a little basic, but that gives...

Having complimentary transport from the prettiest airport after a 24 hour journey was most welcome as was the complimentary drink and chat with Robin upon arrival. We were shown to our room (honeymoon) which was fabulous. Huge, clean and so well appointed but the best was yet to come. We arrived close to midnight so had not seen our view...

The waterfront is an amazing find in Koh Samui. We were met at the airport by Robin, the owner, who took us to the resort, showed us round and even gave us a glass of wine (an expensive luxury in Thailand!). We were delighted with the room and especially the late check out which was so handy. The food was...

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
