The hotel is right on the beach. We stayed in a poolside room which was very comfortable and convenient, you step out of the room right on to the beach. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The food at the restaurant was of the best we had during out stay. All the amenities you could need are available. It... More

We loved this hotel. Poolside room was great for amenities and convenience with the demands of a 2 yr old. The larger pool was fun for a change but we chose to use the smaller pool so our toddler didn't interfere with people relaxing. We stayed 4 nights. Poolside service was fantastic our 1st 2 days but slowed right down... More

After extensive research into booking a hotel in Phuket for our family holiday, we decided to choose the Boathouse by Montara at Kata Beach for a 6 night relaxing break. We were travelling as a group of 6 adults and 2 young children (19 months and 3 months old) and overall the hotel was ideal for our needs. Having the... More

We were after a relaxing family getaway, and that is exactly what we got. The hotel itself is in a wonderful location right on the beach, and our room (Beachfront Suite) was the perfect size for the three of us, with spectacular views over the beach. The staff were incredibly friendly and very helpful, and the pool area next door... More

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
