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

What an incredible place for both lunch and dinner. We loved it. Great selection of food perfect for foodies. A good balance of simple menu items and some more gourmet. A subtle blend of cafe/ bistro and fine dining with a great selection of wine. Recommended by David from Kata Sea View Villa, we where highly impressed. Malcolm and Sam

I am in doubt whether to give it 3 or 4 stars. Some major drawbacks ends it at 3. Had the big 80-something sqm suite with full-length balcony overlooking the beach. Fantastic view! And you are right on the beach. Large living room with sofa, table with chairs, a desk for the working man, and a big thank you for... More

We love this area and the Boathouse is probably the best located resort on the beach. That said we enjoyed every aspect of our stay, staff were fantastic (thanks Mr X for the thai conversations and the girls in reception for your friendly and keen to help attitudes). We regularly travel to Thailand and I'm happy to rate this resort... More

The hotel is nice and small on a beautiful stretch of the beach. The breakfast was great and it had many very good restaurants close by. The best thing about this hotel besides its location on the beautiful beach is the wonderful staff that work there. The place is small so the staff at the front desk got to know... More

My room was the bottom floor suite which as amazing. The music by the pool was way too loud!!!!! It sounded like we were in a Dubai nightclub again. The Breakfast was rubbish even though the dinner is amazing. The staff were helpful throughout our stay.

Our room was of very generous style and nicely fitted out with Thai feel. Being right on the beach really made you feel on holidays. Walk out the front door and you are immediately stepping into local village life which I enjoy. The GM and his staff couldn't do enough for us to ensure that our stay was great. Restaurant... More
