I first stayed in this hotel in 1990 in those days there was only two hotels on kata beach and as The Boathouse only had 36 rooms the beach was uninhabited most of the time. Even then the food the staff and the service were excellent I have since been back 6 times and have now sampled the hotel since... More

One of the best hotels I habe ever been to. Nothing to complain. It is directly located at the wonderful beach. Perfect surf conditons in August. Breakfast buffet is great. Room with seaview is hardly recommended. Staff is very pleasant.

I've been coming to this hotel for many many years and although the setting is as beautiful as ever, I have to say the hotel does seem to have dropped off particularly in terms of service. Many of the staff from it's previous owner in the Mom Tri group initially stayed on after becoming a Montara group hotel, however in... More

We've been to Phuket many times and I must say this place takes the cake for the most overpriced meal we've eaten in Melbourne let alone Phuket. Most stakes are 1500 baht per piece without tax, service, condiments etc. We ordered the tbone speciality for two (3000 baht) with a side of mashed potatoes. The meat was lovely and tender... More

We have stayed at The Boathouse Kata Beach several times and have to say their service, standards, friendliness and quality are totally consistent and of a very high standard. This time we were travelling with friends who took our recommendation to join us at The Boathouse, and they were highly impressed in all areas. The staff could not have been... More

We had researched hotels and locations for our holiday with our 2 children at length! We read the reviews on The Boathouse and looked at their website, we thought it sounded perfect for us. Imagine our shock when we arrived to find that the hotel was far from what we had expected! The location is busy, noisy road side with... More

We loved this place. The staff was so nice, helpful and friendly. Our room was big and had a nice terrace with a good sea view. The breakfast was a dream, on one side the view to the beach and the nice decorated restaurant, on the other side we loved the egg benedict and the buttermilk pancakes (still dreaming of... More

Had to come here. don't get me wrong still very good. But it felt like a sydney restaurant...food setting and price. Kids enjoyed but I like more thai traditional. Lamb masaman was my choice. Kids loved it
