The Waterfront Bophut, Koh Samui - FSL005

The Waterfront is located hidden away from the hustle and bustle of Koh Samui but still very close to shops and restaurants, and of course, right at the ocean.

The Waterfront Boutique Beach Hotel is a friendly, family-run hotel in Bophut Village which has been run for thirteen years by Robin and Sue Worden from the UK. Together with their Thai staff, they pride themselves in providing personal, attentive and warm service.

The hotel is located at the peaceful and quiet end of Bophut fisherman’s village. Within a five-minutes walk, guests can reach restaurants, bars and shops.

The Rooms
The bedrooms come with queen size beds, flat screen TV with DVD player, dressing table with a mirror, wardrobe, safe, dressing gowns, hairdryer and an adaptor. There is also a stocked mini-bar refrigerator and snacks. The bathrooms have a tile and glass shower with shampoo, conditioner and body wash. Towels for the beach are also provided.

The main difference between the room categories is the size of the room and the location. The Deluxe Beachfront Bungalows (26 sqm) are set amidst a lush garden and have magnificent views of the Gulf of Thailand. Located up one flight of stairs, the Sea View Doubles (23 sqm) also have magnificent views of the Gulf of Thailand. The Deluxe Beachfront Doubles (31 sqm) are situated in the lush gardens while the 40 sqm Deluxe Beachfront Honeymoon Double is located only a few steps away from the ocean.

The Facilities
The property is located directly on Bophut beach. There is a 12m x 6 m saline swimming pool surrounded by comfortable chairs with footstools and umbrellas. The sunbeds in the lush gardens around the pool are inviting to those looking for some shade. Sunbeds and hammocks on the beach invite guests to enjoy the wonderful panoramic views. There is a thatched roof bar adjacent to the pool serving cold drinks and another nearby offering relaxing Thai massages.
The hotel restaurant comes with a decked terrace looking out to the sea and outlying islands where you can enjoy your cooked to order, inclusive breakfast until 11am.

On Friday nights, Bophut celebrates its Thai culture and the small one-way road closes for a festive street fair. Local street vendors offer delicious food and drinks, crafts are on display for purchase and music can be heard all over the village.

"The hotel staff will take first time guests on an orientation drive around the area - lovely personal gesture."
