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...

We originally booked for 2 nights during a round trip in Thailand but eventually stayed 4 nigts. Verry clean and modern rooms, excellent food and staff. The hotel is located in the more quiet part of the island, but a 5 to 10 minutes tuk tuk drive will bring you anywhere. One of the best hotels I ever visited

We moved into the Waterfront wanting to stay for 3 days, and felt so happy and comfortable that we changed our travel plans to stay for 8. the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly with extremely helpful staff and the owners were an absolute joy, always on hand to offer advice or assistance, but never obsequious or overbearing. Had previously been...

Having been to thailand a few times over the last ten or so years, we were happily disorganised on our holiday - and on the back of other reviews were lucky enough to get a room at The Waterfront. From the moment we walked in and were greeted by Robin and Sue, we felt completely at home. Sumui has changed...

Just returned from our first visit to this delightful place. We spent some time considering whether or not to book The Waterfront, and the reviews on Tripadvisor went a good way to making this decision easy, together with the hotels own website. In the end the place exceeded our expectations. The place is very clean, well appointed and delightfully positioned,...

Quiet, friendly small resort. It is tucked in the quiet corner of Boh Phut beach. We loved the pool, lounging under the palm trees and enjoying the small village. Friendly staff, comfy rooms.

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
