This is our third year here with three young kids (10, 5 and 3). The 10 year old has daily surfing lessons with Jimmy who is attached to the hotel. Always excellent and my son loves it. Hotel are always flexible about our needs and great staff. Perfect spot away from some of the craziness and one of my favorite... More

Having just spent seven relaxing mid-July days at the Karon Beach Movenpick Hotel, it was time for my partner and I to move on. We had arranged via phone at the last minute a stay at a hotel at the southern end of Kata Beach but upon arrival it was far from what it was described as and way overpriced.... More

Not sure if my experience reflects all the raving review here. This is our 2nd night here and we are staying for another 4 nights until we leave for home. We stay in the penthouse which is very spacious but the tree blocked most of our view to the ocean. We were provided with baby amenities which was really thoughtful.... More

This was our 2nd trip to The Boathouse and we'll continue to go there again and again. I just hope it retains its current charm and boutique quality. Interestingly, Kata Beach has seriously grown in its urban development in the 3 years since we were last there. This trip, we brought our 5 month old and to the staff, he... More

We travelled around Thailand for three weeks with our litlle family with two children: 6 and 13 years old. This was the only place where we allowed ourselves to go far over our hotelbudget to just enjoy one night and day of relaxation. But it was worth it! Staff is very friendly and helpful, even upgraded us for our one... More

Our family of 2 adults and 2 teenage children stayed at Boathouse for 8 nights in July. We booked 2 interconnecting Superior Seaview rooms (all rooms would have some view of the ocean) through a travel retailer in Australia, price beat after getting a quote from "HotelTravel.com". I then contacted the hotel directly to ensure we would get the rooms... More

Had a wonderful night with all our family here recently. Last night in Phuket!! Sunset glorious, live chilled out jazz music during our visit and the most wonderful silver service/ menu/ food you could ask fir. Prices a little higher than elsewhere but quality of everything unsurpassed so well worth it!

I was amazed at how many surfers were out on the beach right in front of Boathouse Wine & Grill, even though I'm not a surfer myself I know how rare it is to find beaches in Thailand that have waves big enough for surfing (I lived in San Diego before and surf culture thrives there). The beach is definitely... More

We stayed here for four nights in mid July and loved it. The location right on Kata beach is fantastic, we were happy to stay around the pool area and look at the views all day. Breakfast was beautiful and a welcome change from normal hotel buffet breakfasts, the staff were friendly and attentive especially Pepe at Re Ka Ta... More

We stayed in middle July for three nights toward the end of a twelve day tour. The Boathouse rooms were spotless, serene and had amazing views of the Andaman Sea. This hotel is literally right on the beach and you can hear the surf crashing. The waves were quite big when we were there and the red flags (do not... More
