Quite isolated from the crowds of the northeastern coast of Samui, the Imperial Boat House displays the complete recent renovation of its set of amenities, as well as perfect originality: it offers the possibility to live in a ship, a real one.

    Location 1.0 /10

    In the northeast of Koh Samui, bordering Choeng Mon Beach. Chaweng, on the east coast, is located 4 miles away to the south, the airport is only 3 miles away also to the south, and Nathon, the main village on the island on the west coast is 19 miles away, a 40 minute ride.

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    The Imperial Boat House has a total of 210 rooms: 165 Deluxe, which are the standard model, 11 Poolside Terrace rooms, slightly more luxurious and with direct access to the pool, and finally 34 private Boat Suites on the boats (28 of two floors and 6 of only one floor), the only rooms of the hotel that offer a direct view of the sea. Taking into account the recent renovation, the amenities of the Deluxe rooms are evidently at the level of international hotel standards, very complete, however there is a certain mediocrity in the decor and the arrangement, which does not make the space particularly convivial. The accommodation on the boats, totally wooden, since the original structures have been preserved, is evidently much more enjoyable, however it is not necessarily more comfortable.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    Built in 1990 on a large flat land in front of the ocean, the Imperial Boat House looks like new after its renovation in 2000. After the reception building, which integrates the spacious lobby and one of the restaurants amongst others, the hotel is distributed in two large wings, each of four blocks, on three levels, all the rooms face the gardens and the first pool, totally new as well. However, the real originality of the hotel appears beyond this first block: suites particularly sought after by newlyweds have been built in a series of 34 authentic Thai old boats (which used to be rice barges) arranged at an angle on the site are announced by a small tower shaped like a lighthouse. This second section of the hotel is in front of a second pool (equally in the shape of a boat), connecting to the beach, where the second restaurant has been arranged.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    There are only two restaurants in the Imperial Boat House, the offer is a bit insufficient, taking into account the capacity of the hotel: bordering the sea, the Beach Seafood offers a relatively ordinary menu, combining seafood, Thai specialties and European cuisine, while the Boat House Garden Terrace has a more distinctly international arrangement of colours. However, here it is possible to eat well, with the complement of a honourable wine menu. Additionally, the hotel has made an effort to provide diversity, by organising thematic culinary evenings six times per week. Two bars animated by a Filipino orchestra hired by the hotel complete the scenario.

    Beach 8.70 /10

    The beautiful beach of Choeng Mon, which lies on this location of the island on the curve of the bay, constitutes one of the advantages of the Imperial Boat House Hotel. Very well isolated from the large touristic concentration points thanks to its location, it remains well maintained and although it is public, it offers an almost private access to the sea. All the necessary calm to relax properly as well as a water and slope quality that should totally satisfy swimming lovers.

    To know

    The Boat House was reopened during Christmas 2000, after a total renovation: the hotel now has a luxurious lobby, a second pool and a spa, amongst other new amenities. In each block, a maid is available all night long. The hotel has two internal television channels with continuous films free of cost. The Imperial Thai hotel group, owner of the establishment, also has another hotel on the island, the Imperial Samui. The guests of the Boat House can freely use its facilities, especially the tennis courts.

      Open since 2001, the Impiana is a nice small hotel but is highly lacking in facilities as it has 98 rooms available. The hotel is located on the shores of Chaweng Noi Beach. You will need to travel for two miles to reach the centre of Chaweng. The hotel is comfortable and constructed parallel to the beach.

      Open since May 2006, the Kandaburi Resort and Spa is a comfortable establishment. Its typically Thai architecture combines very well with the decor and vegetation. It benefits from a beautiful location in front of Chaweng Beach. Although the hotel does not have childcare, you can find many families but also couples.

      The Tongsai Bay Cottages follows its own rhythm. Enjoying a more remote location than the complexes at Chaweng Beach, this hotel thrives in its surroundings. Here, life takes on the relaxing and tranquil pace guests usually look for when on holiday and the complex has all the facilities you could need: spa, pool, beach, table tennis, and a relaxation area. It's true that this isn't a luxury resort, but it still holds a few secrets. In this complex, couples, families, and groups of friends all fit in in their own way. The establishment especially attracts a Japanese and Korean clientele.

      • Location 1.0

      The Chaweng Cove is the type of hotel you come to for the price. As long as you bear this in mind you'll know what (not) to expect and you might even go so far as to appreciate some of the things the hotel does have to offer. This is no luxury hotel but rather an economical option where elegance is not a matter of importance. The hotel offers a basic level of comfort but the cramped surroundings do make the place feel crowded. Then again, that's the price you pay for a hotel at the heart of Chaweng, standing right on the famous beach.

      The sign at the entrance sets the tone, with the following written in black and white: "Member of the Design Hotels". This statement would hardly be noticed in Berlin or in the trendy districts of London, but when you read this sign wearing flip-flops, with a gaudy shoulder bag, right in the heart of touristic Thailand between Chaweng Beach and Koh Samui, it takes on a whole new dimension. Why? First, because design is very uncommon in this region that is distinguished by its Oriental Zen style, at least in the hotels. Second, because those who feel comfortable surrounded by clean lines, solid colours, and a full complement of modern technology, will have found the establishment of their dreams here. In addition, this hotel has a number of surprises. Here's a clue: red.

      This complex, nestled in one of Lamai Beach's bays, is defined by its elegant simplicity. The warm tone of the wood and the green bamboo are the dominant features, making for a calm and very oriental setting. You will have already gathered that this is a luxury establishment. Calm and tranquillity are the key features of this discrete hotel, and it's beginning to attract a very loyal clientele.
