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...

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...

Our year was extremely strenuous and so we were looking for something small, fine and landed after some research at the Boathouse at Kata Beach, Thailand. Positive, we evaluated the small number of guests and 4 star award, that let expect good service. What we then got blew up our ideas: Just imagine: the most attentive service, it missed nothing....

It is a great place to relax with great service and clean rooms! Nice pool with great beach view. We stayed our last 5 days before leaving Thailand after 3,5 weeks and we could enjoy and relax a lot after our travel around Thailand. Food was fantastic and fresh too! Would definitely come again!

We stayed at Boathouse for 2 nights, the last 2 after 4 nights at Patong. Right from the day of booking we felt welcome, with the staff (Siriporn) being in constant touch to confirm any requirements we may have. The check in was smooth, food was lovely, pool is small but the beach makes up for it. The food at...

My wife and I have just spent 8 days at this hotel and have to say it was a very enjoyable stay. The hotel is superbly located right on the beach, and when we toured around parts of Phuket this is quite unusual. You are able to relax by a reasonable size pool where we never had any problems finding...

Well situated on beachfront, friendly and competent staff, good food/cocktails and service at Boathouse restaurant. Walking distance to Kata hot yoga centre, various Thai spa's, local and international bars & restaurants and shops. Only 20-25min to Phatong by Tuk-Tuk or taxi. Will recommend to friends and family.

We arrived tired and stressed after a 6 week tour looking to relax and unwind. We had 5 nights in a delux room overlooking the beach. Can't praise the quality of the staff highly enough.
