Wonderful boutique hotel right on the beach. Excellent clean rooms, groovy pool scene with cocktail bar, background cool music ( not too loud ), excellent waiters, even on beach loungers. They are always there to offer you service. Give them a tip day 1, and they look out for you each day, and reserve you you place. Breakfast is top... More

My partner and I stayed at Boathouse, booking the accommodation randomly after a quick Google search. We were pleasantly supposed when our mini van pulled up to the resort. Boathouse staff deliver exceptional customer service and the architecture of the building is beautifully crafted and positioned to capture the view of the ocean, all adding to the magic of our...

We spent 5 nights at The Boathouse on our way home from Europe. It was fabulous, we had intended to do lots of things while in Phuket, but hardly left the Resort. The Food, The Bed ( always very important to me) The Pool and most importantly the Staff, were all 5 star. I did a cooking class which I... More

Excellent service level, a high-quality property and top location right on the beach. Small but cosy pool area and very good healthy breakfast, with part buffet and part menu. The only reasons for not giving 5 stars is the lack of a gym and the restaurant which, although serving good but not necessarily outstanding food, is somewhat overpriced.

This place is a little bit of paradie tucked away in the corner of kata beach. The staff are exceptional and the service second to none. Marie, even as the busy GM took time out to greet us upon arrival and that personal touch seems to be have been embedded in all the staff's DNA. Service is delivered with sincerity... More

My husband and I just spent 4 nights here after staying 3 nights at the Hilton, Karon Beach. We basically wanted a change of scenery and having read the reviews on Trip Advisor, thought the Boathouse was what we were after. We splurged on the Hideaway suite on level 4. When I booked we were offered the 'romantic package' at... More

This was our 7th visit to thailand and we rate this as one of our best resort accomodation yet. The little things like extra water in the rooms, fresh fruit every day, chilled water by the pool or on the beach lounges. Amazingly happy, friendly and attentive staff - nothing was too hard for them. Beautiful food and wine in... More

Great access to the beach, outstanding food, amazing service. You could not ask for more in a hotel! Just be prepared for the long ride from the airport and take a taxi, not a minivan. I wish we had arrived on a day when they offered cooking class which is only on weekends and Wednesdays.
