Several of my friends and I dined at The Boathouse last week. A three course lunch with free flow wine.
Executive Chef Jonathan Bruell did his usual magic with incredible cuisine. A 5-star dining experience!

We were delighted to have found this absolutely delightful boutique hotel in Phuket. The rooms and the general style of the hotel is beautiful. Our rooms were both stunning and comfortable. They reminded me of luxury 5 star hotels I stayed in LA but much fresher in reflecting the feel of the ocean. The food was absolutely incredible. The master chef, whom prior to his time in Phuket was working for a couple of decades in the most elite restaurants in Australia, was a breath of fresh air in Asia. He catered superbly for our every demand. We mainly requested vegan, gluten free, sugar free dishes which to make taste fabulous is no easy task. To our surprise the meals were some of the best I have tasted in the world. Having eaten all over Europe, Asia and the US in the top restaurants I can honestly say that the food at the Boathouse was both delicious and superbly presented.
The staff at the hotel were so lovely and accommodated all our needs at any time of the day. The manager was very personable and welcoming, making sure that all our wishes were fulfilled.
The location was great as it was on the famous Kata Beach. I hope to return to this fabulous hotel soon

Food was good but I've had better elsewhere. However, what makes this place a worthy location is the attentive staff.

From the moment you enter, you are king! The setting is also beautiful and ideal for romantic dining.

Definitely try the goats cheese and fig starter for an explosion of flavoured in your mouth!

Wonderful beach side property on the south end of Kata beach. Kata beach is lively and excellent for swimming and surfing. Location is excellent and various restaurants and supermarkets are steps away. The property is a themed boutique style hotel with an emphasis on service and quality.

The staff are extremely friendly and remember your favorite table and drink. The restaurant offers great sunset views. So even if your not staying there, worth booking sunset dinner .

Rooms are very clean and bed is very comfortable. Nice large TV with a good selection of channels.

I would definitely stay there again next time i'm in Phuket (and no where else).

I've stayed at several places in Phuket, since moving to Asia 3 years ago, it's one of my favorite places to visit. The location of The Boathouse is amazing. You are right on the beach, and walking distance to a few restaurants, bars, and shopping. The location is probably why you will pay 2X as much as other hotels in Phuket. Was it worth it? Probably not, honestly. The hotel, although charming, could use some major updating. The rooms are nice, but nothing special, (the blue light is weird) The bar/rest was nice as well, (apparently it won a Michelin star in 2019) but for the pool menu it was way to fancy. Definitely needed to add some sliders, or tacos, or spring rolls, or something. Drink menu, wine and gin selection was very nice. I think the hotel struggles to find it's identity, as the food/bar is super high end. The decor isn't, more casual of a vibe, and the prices are high. (room wise, food and drink were okay) We also received vouchers for a discounted massage I tried to use, and was told no one was in or available. Staff was friendly, it was super clean, and definitely a romantic vibe. I liked that it was a bit more secluded, but I definitely think there is better value/quality in Phuket.
