The hotel is perfectly situated on the water, has a marvelous staff, and the rooms are large and well appointed. We enjoyed our stay here and the staff made it very special. Breakfast is great - try the thai crab cake. Families with toddlers and children will appreciate the small pool overlooking the beach; those without children will want a... More

My wife and I booked this hotel because we found a great deal through their web site, which included free daily breakfast, a sea view room (3rd floor) and 20% off on dining. We arrived past midnight to Phuket, so we booked a transfer from the airport with the hotel. The room was very, very nice, with a king size... More

This hotel is arguably the best hotel on Kata Beach, and one of the best on the island. The location is clearly the best possible on Kata, situated right at the end of the beach, steps from the sea and the small restaurants at the side of the bay. The room was excellent: cool, well-lit, with lots of space indoors... More

Whilst I give them a generous four stars, this hotel left me cold! They did nothing wrong, they responded in every way and worked hard to ensure our comfort but it just left me cold. The pool side was very noisy with kids yelling and splashing, pool attendants shouting at each other to grab something or whatever, doing furniture and... More

I stayed at the Boathouse on the night of my birthday, as we were having dinner at the restaurant that night. We have stayed here in the past and received the same warm welcome as before. We stayed in a deluxe seaview room which had direct access out on to a rooftop area with chairs and a seating area that... More

Many return visits so my comments need to take account of that. In it's previous guise it was sedate,traditional but tired needing an upgrade. Since it lost it's MomTri title and leapt into the world of 'boutique' it's not all good news. The facade exterior is much more attractive, the interior a bit smarter. The experienced staff are excellent. My... More

Located in Kata beach in a relatively quieter yet easily accessible part of Phuket, and away from the hustle and bustle of Patong beach was the first attraction. Our beach facing room in the first floor had a beautiful view. The staff were friendly and more than happy to help. Finally, do make it a point to check out their... More

Great views on Kata beach. Had a wonderful four hand massage at the spa. Rooms were clean but a little dated. Overall a nice stay. I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Phuket. The food was good at RaKata beach club. Nice gift shop too.

The Boathouse enjoys a perfect location at the end of Kata beach. Saw very few other spots located right on the beach in Kata or Karon. Our room was beachfront and the view from the room (including bathroom) was spectacular. Everyone at the hotel was extremely helpful and courteous. Food and drinks were great. Wine list actually includes some French... More

We stayed in the beach view room, it was comfortable and very clean. Daily breakfast was great and the staff at the hotels beach club Re Ka... More
