Travellers' Choice
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.

We stayed here for 10 nights during our Honeymoon in December 2019. Robin and the staff were very welcoming and the room was very clean and well presented. The pool was a good size and also very clean with enough sun loungers. Bophut is a lovely village, not too loud and not too quiet. There is a good amount of bars and restaurants to choose from and the beach is good too. When walking out onto the beach from the hotel we headed right (away from the village) and found a bar/restaurant called 'ad hoc', we were gutted we didn't find it until the last night as we would definitely have gone back. We walked to Bang rak to the Big Buddha one day and went on a day trip to Ang Thong and to the Elephant Sanctuary. Would definitely recommend Bophut and staying at The Waterfront!

The perfect place to spend our Christmas vacation with family and friends. The bungalows are on the beach and are in a great location, close to bars, restaurants and shops. The accommodation itself is great and and all the staff were fantastic and could not have been more helpful during our stay. If we hadn't of had to return home we would most definitely have extended our stay. Thank you so much to Robin and his team for a fantastic holiday, we will definitely be back again.

We could not have asked for a more relaxing environment to spend the festive period. Robin and his team did an amazing job of looking after our family and friends; helping to arrange trips to Islands, ziplining and transport to other beaches. The family beach bungalow was perfect, two bedrooms and a small sitting room overlooking the sea. Clean and very comfortable. Fishermans Village has an abundance of restaurants, bars and small shops. Could not recommend this enough! Thanks Robin, we will be back.

Fraser Island, Australia7 contributions
This relaxed little bungalow style resort provided a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere for our family stay over xmas and new year. The staff were amazing, helping us with planning and booking trips and excursions across the island. The bungalows are clean, comfortable and spacious, overlooking the pool and bar. Located at the end of Fisherman's Village, it is just a short walk to the bars, restaurants and shops. Thank you Robin and team for making us feel welcome - we hope to see you again soon!

Absolutely loved this little gem. Right in the fisherman's village at the quiet end. We booked for 2 nights coming from another accommodation in another area planning to leave Samui and this place made us want to stay on. Brilliant location and wonderful staff. We were greeted with the loveliest of welcomes offered a fresh hot coffee or tea children juice while we checked in. Lovely bungalows joined together. Baby cot too. Nothing was too much. It was so quiet and relaxing. There's not many rooms which means it's small and intimate. Such a serene atmosphere. Rooms are simple but lovely and immaculate. Breakfast was brilliant. Fresh fruit and yogurt and cereal to choose. Fresh coffee/latte tea juices and full English breakfast with proper sausages. Offers of more food, a lovely start to the day. A real treat. The ladies in reception were just adorable with our two boys and baby. This really made our stay just even more fantastic. Robin has created something very special here. We will definitely be back.
