Quiet, relaxing and right on the beach
proximity to the beach, proximity to local resteraunts and quality of dining in the hotel
Our stay was very good; weather was good, food was good and the hotel was quiet and relaxing. The hotel and resteraunt, however, are expensive and we did have some aircon issues, but they were sorted pretty quickly. Would stay here again

Superb hotel right on beautiful Kata Beach.
Super attentive staff. Perfect location. Superb hotel.
My room was beautifully appointed, with ocean views. The pool area had great sun lounges & nice pool, and was a few steps from the beach. It was centrally located & easy walking distance to shopping & massages. Fantastic breakfast buffet. Extremely attentive, helpful & friendly staff.

Gorgeous hotel, right on the beach!
Delicious local food, super friendly staff, and comfy rooms
We loved our stay here, the hotel was centrally located, with the beach right out the front! We will certainly visit Boathouse again, especially for the scrumptious food, unlike most of the other touristy restaurants, where the Thai food was too mild and flavourless for our liking! Thank you Boathouse and team!

best location in kata beach
location, design, breakfast
almost perfect, although the room I was in (superior) was a bit small for the category in Thailand, and I feel the price should have been 10/15% lower to reach the best value for money.

Romantic Beach Getaway
Excellent view, well trained staff, cooking classes available
Boathouse - Resort on the Beach truly lives up to its 5 star name. The resort is impeccable. The rooms are spacious, we had a beach front room and the view was amazing. I especially love the fact that they are staffed with extremely well trained English speaking employees. Spent an afternoon at the Re Ka Ta spa and really enjoyed my facial that recommended by the girl at the counter. They used Decleor products and the massage with aroma therapy oil was just heavenly. Cooking classes are available on weekends. Ideal for people who want to learn a thing or two about the Thai cuisine and meet like minded people who do. I had a wonderful time and will definitely book to stay at Boathouse again!

lovely hotel service was great balcony bit small
great location pool area was wonderful with beach just in front
The staff were great at the Rekata pool side cafe as were all the staff.We where traveling with 2 other couples who were concerned about staying Phuket thinking it would be to busy, they loved the location & were happy I found The Boat House when I was last in Kata walking one day. We all had a very relaxing holiday & would return with our families.

Wonderful service with great beach
The beach is beautiful and not over-crowded
We requested the family suite since we were traveling with our two kids aged 2 and 4. The suite is very nice, but we were a little disappointed that it was only one large room, with no separation between the living space (where our kids would be sleeping) and the sleeping space. That said, the couch was basically a huge bed--perfect for our 4 year-old to sleep on, and we requested a crib for our two-year old, and it was very nice and included bedding. In addition, the staff had put a basket full of baby oil, bubble bath etc. next to the huge tub in the bathroom, and had also provided a child's toilet seat--really a nice touch! We had a nice view of the whirlpool and ocean, but the balcony is quite small. Still, it was pleasant to have a drink there in the evenings. The hotel provides a bowl of fresh fruit in the room each day, which was also a nice touch. Also, real (not instant) coffee, in-room. On the beach, staff come by every so often with cold bottled water free of charge. Again, a small thing, but the small things really add up at this hotel. The restaurant is good, and has a decent selection of vegetarian food, which was great for us.

Amazing location
One of the best located hotels in Kata, the staff where amazing they were helpful, informative and couldn't do enough for you.
I stayed there with my two teenage children. The location being right on the beach was fantastic. It was close to some good little shops to pick up a few bargains, and had some great resteraunts very close by. Can thoroughly recommend Two Chefs Kata, directly opposite. Breakfast was delish and included in the price. I do feel this hotel was slightly more suited to couples though. The rooms were a bit small for my comfort with 2 teenagers. But I do prefer villas when I have the kids. Overall we had a brilliant time here.

Nice resort, warm service, good location
the resort was on the kata beach. good for relaxing, not crowded. people usually surfed during high season. we went there on october (rainy season) though it rained only some day but water was cleared, blue, and beautiful. we were able to stay in 3 different types of room. all rooms faced to the beach. all room types came with fruit basket, one litre of drinking water, tea/coffee set. these was daily stocked. plus a complimentary mini afternoon tea for all guess. a discount coupon for dinner and a drink coupon for 2 free drink at rekata club house. a la carte breakfast was included everyday. though not so many choices but all were attention to detail. the first one was deluxe beach front next to the open lounge area on second floor. all standard furniture like any other branded hotel but with espresso-milk-frothing machine. for bathroom was very small, though it was cleaned with f ull amenity, hot and clod water with strong shower option. the second room was the family suite. it was very big, 2 steps from jagucci and 10 steps right to the beach. big bathroom for the whole family used at the same time. we enjoy the view of the beach from the bathtub. there was an additional big sofa bed for relaxing during the day and could also use as additional bed for two kids. we loved this room but there were mosquitoes. we had to move to the third room because we wanted to checkout late but the room was already for the next booking quests. we were ok to move. so here came the third room. it was the smallest one with twin beds. the room was next to the pool and at night they used it as a party area. normally the area was quiet but unfortunately that night the resort had an event. nobody informed us in advance. though we managed to sleep with some mosquitoes. staffs were genuine, prompt, really take care of use. with the price we paid, it was more than we had expected

Just Perfect
Great service, lovely room, right on the beach
I have nothing but good things to say about the Boathouse. It was still low season so we got a great deal on the room. Spent our days on the beach making use of the hotels deck chairs. The hotel attendants bring you cold bottled water, cool towels and fruit. Our room was nicely decorated, comfortable beds and had its own balcony and deck chairs.
