Disappointing!
We've stayed in 7 different hotels on this 3 week holiday, some more expensive than Imperial Boathouse and some a lot cheaper. This is the only one we wouldn't return to - we stayed in a poolside terrace and feel that that the room and the rest of the hotel decor is very dated, it was probably ok 10 to 15 years ago and it's possibly a good quirky place to stay if you are pushing the boat out and upgrading to one of the boat suites for a couple of days but there are better places around that offer much better value. The breakfast was pretty good and the beach location is a plus point.

Great Location, hotel a little tired
The Pool & Beach
We've stayed here previously, but the hotel and rooms seemed a little run down this time around.

Good stay
Unique, space, quiet
Fell in love when I saw the boat-themed room as well as the swimming pool. Wasn't disappointed with the actual room. The rice barge room actually comprised of 2 separate rooms. Although the total room size is good, they belong to 2 different sections of the boat. However, mosquitoes are a problem. The resort is rather big. If you want to near the beach end, it means you are far from reception and if you want to close to the restaurant, it means you are far from the pool. Beautiful landscaping within the resort. Great pool with a mini playground for kids and massage corner for adults. Stone's throw from the beach. Breakfast was good but I had to pay additional B300 / day for my 5 year old. Booked a trip to Ang Thong National Marine Park through the hotel's travel desk as it offered better rates than I saw in town. Would had stayed longer but the hotel's Christmas surcharge was too much for me to accept.

A nice alternative
Location, creative setting, beach foot massage
We used to stay next door at the Muang Samui, but they have priced themselves out of contention. Because we love Choengmon and had seen Imperial Boathouse from our previous room, we thought we would give it a try. We stayed in one of the converted rice barges, which is a must. Wonderful fun. Loads of space. A bit tired in spots, but who cares. Service is not the best. I had to carry our bags to the room. Even the worst hotel at least offers to help. But the location is great. Aoy's beach foot massage is right there and she's actually a reason to visit all on her own. We probably won't return, but only because we'll want to try something new. Perfectly enjoyable resort.

Good hotel
Close to the beach
The hotel was good but overpriced and too far from the centre.The area was very quite and not much restaurants to choose.If I knew it is so boring there and nothing to do I would never pay this price for this hotel.A spent too much for taxi to get every day to Chaweng.

Great family friendly hotel
Location, pools and beach
Lovely hotel. Well maintained, good breakfast and helpful staff. The hotel has a nice relaxed atmosphere and lots of options for swimming and relaxing. There are many eating options on the beach and down the village road at good prices. The Wednesday night market has great street food and good shopping bargains.
