Easy stroll for restaurants and shops.The rooms are modern and good size, modern bathroom and all very clean. Large comfortable bed. Timber floor and accessories give the beach feel. The staff here are fantastic making our stay very pleasant, from...

The beach is beautiful and this hotel is right on it but the hotel was slightly run down and not at all luxurious. Our stay started out very badly as when we checked in we were given a smoking room (although our reservation was for not smoking.) They had nothing else so we had to stay in a smokey room...

Dear casadeboys, I appreciate the time you took to share your feedback with regards to your stay in February. It was a pleasure to learn that you appreciated our scenic location right on Kata beach, however I regret that the room assigned to you did not meet your expectations. We have a non-smoking policy in all guest rooms at Boathouse,...

Having been very disappointed with the Beyond Resort in Khao Lak, we left 5 days early in the hope of finding a quintessential experience in Phuket. From the time we arrived at the Boathouse we were not disappointed. We were welcomed at the front desk by Pair who was truly outstanding and even offered us a choice of rooms. The...

This is a very nice resort. Situated at the southern end of Kata Beach, and right on the beach, it was a relaxing and memorable experience. The quality and presentation of the food were excellent. And while we didn't try the Fine Dining restaurant, we did take advantage of their beachside eatery, Re Ka Ta, for several meals. This restaurant...

SO glad we chose this hotel - solely based on it's setting on the beach. My friends and I had the best time here! The hotel is about an hour away from the airport which isn't great but if you want privacy and a great spot, the further away from the airport you have to go. It's located on the...

We selected the Boathouse because of it's setting on the beach at Kata and were not disappointed. Collection by the hotel at Phuket Airport was prompt with hand towels and water provided. The staff at reception were very welcoming. My husband requested that our room be changed to a larger room and this was done without any issue. Fortunately a...

Spent 5 days/4nights at the Boathouse in August with my wife and loved it. Glad we chose this hotel. Its directly on the sandy beach and has 2 pools on site too. You won't be doing lengths in these pool but just chilling out on the floating beanbags. The hotel has a very relaxed and chilled out atmosphere. Friendly staff...

The location and feel of the property could not be better. This is one of the best beaches on Phuket for looks, manageable waves and sand, which is good because the Boathouse doesn't have a pool other than a small one just to cool off in. There are lots of restaurants and massage places in the area, so you aren't...
