This is lovely place for a romantic weekend. First of all I will list all the pluses. It has a restaurant of which it is justly proud. The food is wonderful and the breakfasts were some of the best that I have had. The staff speak very good english and were very helpful. The rooms are kept clean and are modern. The resort is on the beach and is in the centre of Kata. The negatives are the resort is 5 star and expect to pay 5 star prices. When I arrived they asked for 2000 baht a night deposit I stayed for 4 nights so 8000 baht. I just found it annoying. Also as soon we arrived we were sat down at a table with a lady who was selling transport and tour services. This was before we had even seen the room. Again it was a bit annoying. After this everything was very good but I arrived at our room feeling irritated.
Gorgeous beach hotel ”
We had a lovely relaxing 4 days at the boat house. Staff were always very accommodating and polite. They buffet breakfast was very good and the cocktail making class with Taz was excellent- would definitely recommend. The location is beautiful, right on beach and great for sunset. Each room has an iPad and up to date complimentary movies for any rainy days. Our only con was that there wasn’t a sheltered outdoor seating area - unless it was the restaurant. This was more relevant to us because it rained. Otherwise, wouldn’t be a problem. We would definitely return :)
Fabulous hotel, great attention to detail, very polite staff. Delicious breakfast. ”
Lovely sunbed area around infinity pool with gate opening onto beach. Lively restaurants nearby on beach, very reasonable good food. Street outside has plenty of restaurants and shops , easy to book boat trips and sightseeing tours with pick up from hotel. We highly recommend this hotel .
Fabulous return visit after a 10 year gap.”
Wonderful boutique hotel right on the beach a world away from what is happening outside the front entrance. Lovely staff throughout although in our opinion the ‘pool guys ‘are not assertive enough for the usual towels on lounges stupidity where I witnessed loungers ( with bags on ) not used for 8hours!!! I brought this to the pool guys attention to no avail ... The restaurant in our opinion was not quite the standard of the reputation it has. However overall a fabulous holiday.
Pros: Centre of Kata, if you like the shops and some restaurants on your doorstep - convenient. Beach was not bad but not for swimming. Surfing only. Room was clean, nicely laid out. Restaurant serves fantastic lunch menu. Staff really good. Cons: Beach front cheap restaurants set of fireworks and loud music some nights. Not suitable for swimming in sea. Loads of plastic polution on beach but efforts were made to reduce and certainly now a problem affect the whole of Phuket, not just this hotel. Two pools, both basically just for paddling as so small.
Perfect Hotel for Phuket family holiday”
The Boathouse is located on the best beach in Phucket ( KATA ) for swimming long board surfing and realaxing. The direct access to KATA beach from The Boathouse is very rare and will not dissapoint. We are a family of 5 ( kids age : 6, 10 and 12 ) and were very active with tours, shopping, activities etc, The Boathouse location was perfect for all outings. It was a pleaseure to come back to the hotel after a big day and be welcomed and looked after at every stage. The breakfast was a step above other 4.5 +stars hotels, the food staff and view of KATA beach was amaxing. Higly reccomend this Hotel.
Great ala carte brekkie , very attentive team at poolside .. PHAT, AUD and other and the lads super cheerfull and pleasant Room very clean - room clean service exceptional and very nice with extra towels and small problems Team extended a late checkout which was really really great for us Check in super smooth and guys bringing bags in rooms prior to our arrival and guys not hanging for a tip but we hope you got it on our way out - thanks Great location - surf rentals and beach guy very flexible and helpful We talked of not coming to Phuket again , but will consider this place a great value stop over location when trecking backwards and forward to Europe. We know its not 5 start but we like it and feel your care and attention :)
Location location location ”
Above average but needs some updating rooms are smaller than the photos seem to show no real place for clothes but very nice staff great location could have more veg food the vegetable burger is misleading as it is made with eggs not really vegetarian they should change this on the menu a bit misleading otherwise a great stay well done
Awesome Beach Resort”
Boathouse by Montara is the best! Beachfront property makes it really easy to take a swim, and with the water looking great, you won't think twice about it! Service is excellent. All of our requests were taken care of, and then some. We didn't have to worry about anything, especially when it came to organizing tours and airport transfers. The small touches make this hotel stand out -- a personalized greeting card from the hotel manager welcoming us and wishing us a nice stay, palm leaf origami by housekeeping every evening, pool boy ready to assist us all the time. The room we had was clean and well-maintained and were it not for the glorious beach outside, we'd have easily stayed in and lounged in bed.
A wonderful stay at one of our favorite hotels”
The staff welcomed us 'back' to the Boathouse and our stay was to the level that we have come to expect over the years that we have been visiting Phuket. We like that the hotel is relatively small and that it lives up to it's exceptional reputation. The staff are attentive, the hotel well decorated and presented and we had a wonderful relaxed time. Our only issue was that there is no gym at the hotel although the staff were able to help us find one within walking distance.
Awesome location, wonderful staff, great holiday!”
We recently had a wonderful 6 night stay at the Boathouse. We chose it because we wanted a hotel with direct beach access and it has exactly that. The staff were lovely and helpful and offered very personal touches with the managers introducing themselves to us. We really enjoyed meeting other guests on the Wednesday night drinks that was put on. The direct pool access room was comfortable, not to big or small. However the only negative I have is that the mattress was too hard and the pillows not the best. We dined in the Grill restaurant one night and it was amazing. It was one of the most expensive meals we had on our holiday, but we didn't mind, the french food and matched wines we had were fantastic. Breakfast at Re Ka Ta restaurant offered great choices and the many of them were freshly prepared or cooked for you. We also enjoyed a couple of lunches at Re Ka Ta, and plenty of cocktails during happy hour! Pool is not large, but that didn't matter as we also swam in the ocean. The staff in the pool/ beach area were wonderful and helpful, and assisted with setting up the umbrellas and towels on the beds for you. The location is great too, plenty of other restaurants, massages places and shops in the surrounding streets. Overall an awesome place to stay.
Beatiful hotel by a beautiful beacj”
While was there was some minor delay on check in, everything else went really well. It is acutally on the beach, the staff were fantastic, the rooms were great and the breakfast was fantastic. Highly recommended for a nice beach stay.
We had a very pleasant stay in this hotel. The lobby has very nice view; the hotel rooms are beautiful and very quiet & comfortable. Breakfast is delicious! My favorite part is the swimming pool. The location is good… we’re next door to a surfing school and surrounded by restaurants. The service was really, really good as well. Will definitely stay in this hotel again!
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
it is nice hotel which is right on the beach, we stay in the family suite which can be access directly to the beach, the beach has resturants with good food and good price, we can sit on the resturant to watch sun set everynight.
Great little hotel perfect location”
A great hotel perfect location very friendly staff. Kata is a great place to relax away from the busy Patong area but still has great restaurants and shopping, the hotel location is perfect rooms are clean and well maintained. Great breakfast and very good lunch menu. Only con the hotel is currently under renovation should be completed by October.
Fantastic boutique hotel”
Loved the hotel. Had a real boutique feel to it. Service was excellent. Rooms clean and with a good view. Enjoyed the little touches of having a proper coffee machine with fresh milk. Breakfast was excellent. Beach location teriffic. Received complimentary massage, which was very pleasant. Would definitely stay there on a return trip to Phuket.
Nice rooms, not very big and a little bit dated”
First view the hotel looked a bit dated. The rooms have been nice decorated with orchids and we had seaview. Best breakfast ever!!! Stuff friendly, athmosphere is very relaxing. On the beach service great, you get iced water, iced towels and fresh fruit.
Great holiday! ”
It was an awesome weekend for our little family. Resort is just infront of the beach. Great pool view. Great food. Everyday surprises from the Housekeeping staffs which includes snacks. Comfy beach slippers provided (we shouldn’t have brought with us one) and large beach bag that can put all things we needed. Very comfy bed and pillows. Always helpful staffs but there’s one thing we were not happy about, the beach area/coastline is very dirty. Lots of trash even in the water. Overall its a great place to stay while in Phuket and definitely, we are coming back! Btw, thank you for the room upgrade as well and special thanks to Yasmin, their marketing officer. Keep it up!
