|Summary of 34 reviews :||
The Imperial Boat House Hotel comprises 34 authentic teakwood rice barges converted to luxury suites of international standard, as well as eight low-rise buildings. All 168 rooms, including 11 Poolside Terrace, 115 Premier, 8 Honeymoon Suites and 34 Boat Suites, feature a bathroom with bathtub, hairdryer, toiletries, safe, minibar, color TV with video and satellite reception and a private terrace with garden or pool view. The extensive resort facilities include, among others, 3 conference rooms, two swimming pools, a fitness center, several restaurants and bars and all kinds of sport and leisure facilities.
The Choeng Mon Beach is a little bit overcrowded with 4-row sun beds and lots of people in the nearest hotel. If you seek some intimacy and isolation this is not the right place. The hotel is very big and privacy can be hardly obtained during the day. As for the out-of-beach activities/evening outings this is a very good choice: the nearby walking street provides you with everything you might need (cheap massage starting from 250 Bahts, cafes and restaurants as well as some souvenir shops and family marts with cheap beer (30 Bahts vs 120 Bahts for Singha in the hotel). If you seek some nightlife activities or a stronger shopping spree Chaweng is 10 minutes away by bike (200 Bahts per day if taken in the walking street).
great booking experience with sawadee.com. Absolutely one of the best booking agent in Thailand.
Выбрали номер в лодке, общая площадь которого больше нашей квартиры. К некоторым деталям можно придраться, чувствуется что номера не новые, но общее впечатление исключительное. Отличный пляж для отдыха с детьми. Наверняка в следующей поезке в Таиланд остановимся здесь на несколько дней. Очень рекомендуем.
I m afraid, out of the 5 hotels we selected,on our 4th trip, Imperial does come last!! The grading 3 should not say value for money -that is very deceptive and medium is more appropriate. We felt entirely ripped off for what we recieved.Choeng Mon is a lovely setting but out of all 5 beaches,certainly doesn t justify the price.We asked for a Pool View suite which at around 600Othb with a snippet of a pool view,is a total disgrace. One could have selected a characterful boat cabin WITH a seaview at 8000THB per night. I was so confused by the standard of room facilities, I actually enquired at reception whether they hadn t possibly made a mistake.The unfriendly reception staff didn t seem to be too sympathetic and informed me that of the 135 suites,we were in one of 7 select suites!Do yourself a favour by asking for a higher room with NO pool view.That way you might get a glimpse of the sea and in fact pay less for the lack of the pool view!!????? The restaurant staff were however far friendlier,unfortunate that they aren t the welcoming bunch where the first impression is set!!! Imperial does however have some nice facilities like a gym,large boat pool and a lovely small safe beach where one doesn t have to wade far out till shoulder height. There is a lovely casual restaurant/cafe called Orchid Cafe, on the Main Road to the right about 100m down opposite Family Mart, that in fact help make up for the overcharging and left us feeling happy to have explored the area. I think my opinion would be far different if we had paid half the price for what we got but unfortunately I feel done in!This is by no means PRIME Koh Samui, through 4 years of visiting it s unfortunate that a foreigner has to ditstinguish between worth it with ALL the bells and whistles and something so standard that costs so much more. Good luck, we ll definitely be back to the area and beach but certainly not Imperial Boat House!
Excellent,prompt and very professional.
Fantastic stay with my Family.We have a Boathouse-suite, for the kids like an adventure, very clean, air-condition,nearly to the pool and the see. Also the restaurant was very good and the staff very friendly. Chairs at the see always avaibly. Powder-Sand and good stay to go to Chaweng-Beach on evening with the taxi. Will come again..........
Отель большой и многолюдный для сентября. Красивая территория, много цветущих деревьев,2 бассейна. Отель расположен на пляже. Но с утра и до 4-х дня очень мелко. И море трудно назвать чистым. Завтраки в ресторане отличные, большое разнообразие и вкусно. Сервис в гостинице в целом отличный. Мы купили обратные билеты на Самуи на ресепшене. Нам предложили удобный рейс и лучшую цену. Бесплатный интернет, которым мы пользовались прямо в комнате, подключив к нему свой ноутбук. А вот уборка в комнате неважная, порой с ней задерживали до 2-х-4-х часов. Да и балкон за все время пребывания ни разу не убрали. Но особо испортило впечатление об отеле история с купальниками. Так случилось, что выезжая из отеля на Ко Тао, мы забыли в торопях свои мокрые купальники на балконе. Перезвонили в отель через 2 часа и предупредили, что вернемся за ними чез 2 дня. Но купальники нам не вернули, сказали, что уборщица номера ничего не находила. Мне лично было очень жаль своего итальянского купальника.
Great Hotel, good location although a quieter location but only 5 mins from Chaweng. Beach lovely, facilities good, staff friendly. Rooms very good and clean, good variety in complex, AC not work great but enough to keep it just about right. Reception and greeting very good, they even organised a car and booking to the local hospital when girlfriend felt poorly and had a fresh bowl of fruit next day with a get well card, nice touch from the staff and management. Highly recommend. The Boat villas look amazing and very original.
Always good and have used Sawadee many times, never dissappoint
nice hotel ~!~!
We spent a wonderful holiday at Imperial Boat House Hotel. The hotel is situated on the most beautiful, comfortable and calm beach of Samui. We really enjoyed our staying. The building of the hotel is very nice, rooms are comfortable and clean. The air-conditioner works excellently. The bathroom is big and nice too. The balcony (we lived in Premier room) is spacious. The territory of the hotel is very beautiful and full of greenery. There are a lot of chaises longues around two swimming pools and on the beach. The beach is perfect. The water is really hot, very clean. The sea is calm, without big waves. The bottom of the sea is sandy. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There are a lot of restaurants near the hotel. You can find them right on the beach or walking 5 minutes away from the hotel, on the street. It s easy to get to Chaweng. We rented a car during our staying, so it took us about 10 minutes to get to Chaweng. I recommend the Imperial Boat House as the best place of spending your holiday. We re going to stay at the Imperial Boat next time.
very efficient, attentive to customers
We enjoyed our stay at Imperial Boat House hotel and Choeng Mon provides really nice and peaceful surroundings for holiday, still not too far from Chaweng by taxi. We stayed in one of the poolside terrace rooms where the garden pool was easily accessible. The room was ok except looked a little old already. The service at the hotel was very good and the staff were very friendly.
everything ok with the booking.

:: The History of the Boat Suites ::
As you may well know the old name for Thailand was the Kingdom of Siam, a name synonymous with the spice trade made famous by such people as Marco Polo. The principal means of transport in those days was by water and so expansive were the waterways in the capital, that it was once known as the Venice of the East. With the abundance of teak in Thailand at that time and the many qualities of this wood, it was the natural choice for the construction of the rice barges and continued to be so up to recent times. Thirty - four of these working boats were transported across the Gulf of Thailand to the island of Samui to take up residence at The Imperial Boat House Beach Resort. Never having been sailed on seawater before, the journey took its toll on these natural treasures and painstaking restoration was required. After the exterior had been completed work began on converting the barges into luxury suites.
The great attraction of the boat suites is their rich heritage and their natural wooden construction, indeed they are the only ones of their kind in the world today! The antiquity of the barges and their colorful history are interwoven with the unique experience of staying in these suites. You might encounter this during your stay, as the barges may creek from the slightest movements in the wood, caused by changes in temperature and humidity. At times they may even smell a little, due to the effects of years of transporting rice to various destinations along the River of Kings, which has engrained itself into the teak wood exterior of the barge. Each rice barge is a porthole to a bygone age, and we hope that these rare disturbances will not prove too troublesome, but conversely, will heighten your appreciation of the unrivaled experience of staying in a boat suite during your holiday on beautiful Koh Samui.
