My wife and I had a great experience staying here. We found the service to be excellent, the food incredible, and the quality of the rooms and location on the beach to be first class! The staff took the time and effort to get to know us and everyone remembered the specifics of our food allergies and other special requests.... More

This hotel is in a fantastic location with direct access to the Southern end of Kata Beach. The main hotel has 38 rooms split over three floors arranged in an L-shape. First floor rooms have direct access to a small pool, second floor rooms have access to a beautiful patio, and third floor rooms have the best views of the... More

Stayed for 4 nights at the marvellous Boathouse hotel in the Montara Suite, their penthouse suite. The room was truly immaculate and such a privilege to enjoy such a beautiful room in such a beautiful location. The hotel facilities are also amazing. The pool area particularly is superb! Had only one gripe and it was service related. On our last... More

The Boathouse is not the most exclusive of resorts... But you'll surely find this quaint and lovely escape slowly grow on you. Perfectly set in front of Kata Beach, the place gives you a very chill and relaxed vibe. It's has a small pool and a restaurant/bar facing the ocean, with a number of daybeds for lounging all day... What's... More

We stay at the Boathouse every year and are never disappointed. Even this year with the ban on beach beds, the hotel did everything possible to make their guests as comfortable as possible around the pool. The staff at the Boathouse are unfailingly polite and welcoming and the management seems to be better than in recent years. We felt in... More

The Boathouse has a beautiful location on the Beach, it took 3 minutes to get our morning swim, which we enjoyed very much. We had a lovely Beachfront Suite, nice large size room/suite, very clean and good comfort. Not to many furniture and a lovely big bed in the Suite. We had a veranda with two chairs and a small...

Right on the beach, close to beach restaurants, dive shop and surf rental. Great service, very personal, friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend it to anyone! Spa was good, pool was nice, we even got upgraded! Recommend the French toast for breakfast! The breakfast redtaurant has an open patio with a beautiful beach view.

We visited Thailand in late March which seemed actually to be the low season?? Because of this we experienced none of the issues with limited loungers or overcrowding as explained by other travellers. We absolutely loved this hotel, the location is probably the best in Phuket (definitely in Kata). You literally are right on top of the sea, such a... More

We stayed at the Boathouse the week before Easter. The hotel has a fantastic location, on the beach, and is small enough to feel quiet and intimate rather than some of the larger hotels available. The pool area is a little tired (towels and umbrellas) but has a fab ambience and happy hour cocktails are the perfect end to the... More
