Travelled as a young couple. Stayed here for 4 nights at the end of August. Choose on basis of merit on trip advisor. Have been to thailand a few times before but this was my first stay on phuket. Hotel is probably the best on kata beach by a mile. Breakfast was gorgeous and can't fault the staff of the... More

Hotel was really nice. Staff and service was excellent. We were upgraded to a bigger room for free... I think it was low season when we were there though. The outdoor cafe/restaurant staff was really friendly to our toddler. The fancy hotel restaurant had excellent food and a super elegant setting. The hotel is directly on a very inviting Thai... More

Spent one week in The Boathouse in August with my wife and our two 15 yr old children. A lovely experience. The recently refurbished rooms are very nice. The Re Ka Tabeach club is what made the stay for us - great view, service, food and relaxation. And awesome cocktails (especially at happy hour :)). On top of all this... More

Really pleasant and helpful staff, many thanks to them for a great 10 night stay. We had breakfast included and it was so pleasant to sit almost right on the beach every morning. Tip to management..the breakfast menu needs some variation, we were there for 10 breakfasts and when you cross out the food you don't like you end up... More

Pros: - Great location - right next to the beach and close to main street in Kata but still secluded enough - Sea views from the room (you need to book a room with the sea view) - Superb service - staff extremely helpful with every query (they...

Had a really pleasant 4-night stay at the Boathouse. We were in room 205, a 'superior seaview room' I believe, and we had lovely view of the pool and the beach from our balcony. The room itself is spacious and immaculate, very comfortable. The breakfast area is pretty much on the beach - what a way to start the day!... More

When my wife and I met the General Manager M-L Fleury in the library, overlooking the beach and facing the gorgeous sunset, we mentioned the excellent attention we had received at the beach by their staff. She seemed surprised at our comments and only said with a smile: "That is what they are supposed to do." With that professional attitude... More
