Hi All!

These months fly by, don’t they?

Our little hotel continues to welcome lots of new and returning guests and we are so pleased to see everyone. Whatever age, background or nationality they are, it seems to make no difference, they still love it here. I think it’s because we’re a family-run, beachfront boutique hotel on the edge of a charming village which is full of excellent restaurants, bars, boutiques and spas with an amazing Walking Street on a Friday. Plus we really care about our guests – they are not treated as a number here, they are all special and, as many return again and again, they become dear friends too and not only to us, to each other too. And, if you’ve been travelling alone, you will find that you are not alone any longer.

We have 18 rooms, all described on our website, and I’m sure you’ll find one to meet your needs. The price includes a good breakfast, cooked to order, and airport transfer too. Just send your prospective dates to Robin on robin@thewaterfrontbophut.com and he’ll write straight back with our availability. He’ll also answer any questions you may have. You can also book direct on our Book Now page if you’d prefer.

Stig & Torill and Sue & Tom are here yet again just now, two stalwart couples who are a huge part of The Waterfront history. It is such a pleasure to welcome them back.

We have just heard that the village is going to be provisionally closed to traffic, (I should think just the usual Walking Street area), and that there is going to be a market on a Saturday as well as a Friday. The two senior villagers have been around to all the businesses to inform them. Watch this space to see how it all goes.

Michael, our son, and I went to see Lamai, one of our former receptionists, in Devon last week. She married Chris, one of our regular guests, at our hotel actually and they now have two wonderful children. I was plied with Bombay Sapphire and Fever Tree tonic, as was Lamai, and Michael and Chris were on the beers. Needless to say, there was lots of catching up to do and a good time was had by all.

Robin has been stoically and silently suffering this week. He is enduring some quite extensive dental work, but I’m sure he will be sporting a million dollar smile before too long. We can’t have the boss under the weather!

Still keeping up with my fitness training and really enjoying it. I’m so pleased I started this journey and hope that I shall be able to continue for many years to come. Have you been thinking of starting a fitness regime, but keep putting it off? I certainly recommend that you don’t procrastinate any longer and just do it! I feel so much better, mentally as well as physically.

And, of course, holidays help! Come and spend some relaxing time in Samui where the weather is mostly great, the beaches and views are stunning, the restaurants are excellent, the massages and beauty treatments are invigorating, the sports are fun and hugely varied and the boat trips and tours are exciting. We’d love to see you.

Until the next time, take good care of yourselves and come to see us soon!

Very best wishes
