I had not been to Thailand for many years, so was interested to see the experience. I saw The Boathouse in terms of cost, as not a 1st class hotel, so was also interested in the quality. i went with my wife and 4 children, ages 13 to 22. I thought: - 60 minutes minibus ride from airport; - Staff... More

Strongly recommend the small piece of heaven here. Sea is beautiful! The staff very helpfull and friendly. Breakfast amazing (I recommend the salmon, duck and the croissants). A dinner on the terrace that you will never forget(though bit pricy compared to surrounding areas but worth the money excellent chef!! And you get discount if you live here). Well done boathouse...

Boathouse is situated at the best location at Katabeach, far from the hustle and bustle of the street. The breakfast was delicious and we really loved having breakfast at Re Kata. Most of all, the hospitality of the front desk ladies, who were always ready to help. Thanks to Pair and Bovi who made our time enjoyable there!

My partner and I stayed at The Boathouse for 3 nights in January. Check in was very swift and the staff were very friendly greeting us after our long flight in. The room was lovely, spacious with a huge bed which was very comfy! Perfectly clean and very quiet. The bathroom was also great with a big shower. The location... More

We stayed in the Montara Suite with our two teenage daughters. There was plenty of room with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The girls made good use of the piano too. The view from the master suite was amazing. The resort has absolute beach frontage at the end of the bay and we loved Kata Beach. It's not cheap but... More

I stayed for just a few nights at Boathouse and would be pleased to return for a longer stay. Maybe in low season as it is a bit expensive during high season. Arrived at reception, checkin was quick, but unfortunately the lady who checked me in was very unpleasant, almost as though I was disturbing her. She couldn't even smile.... More

This was my second trip to Thailand. The hotel itself is fine, centrally located, clean, on the beach, breakfast options quite good. We went in peak season but the price charged for this hotel is simply not worth it (c250 pound for a family suite), there are far superior options in better locations elsewhere on the island or on Kho...

Upsides: Fantastic room. We had a Family Seaview Suite and the sand literally came up to the door. There's something special about waking up to sea-breeze, putting on your swimsuit, opening your door and jumping into the ocean. Service was good. Friendly smiles all the way – from the driver who picked us up, to the front desk, to all... More

I stayed with my niece in a sea view room. I have stayed at some of the best hotels in the Caribbean and US. Boathouse had the best service I have ever experienced. Fresh fruit and orchids daily. Attentive staff. Pool area staff could have been more attentive but the cold water offered was constantly refilled, along with fresh fruit... More

I lost a valuable ring. Tu the room maid found it on the floor of the bathroom and returned it to me. Very impressed by her honesty! The hotel is still unable to provide beach service which is a problem. In the pool area the music is played very loudly with a heavy base all day, people complained but the... More
