"If I Had A Trillion Dollars"
If I had a trillion dollars, I would live at the Boathouse permanently. The location is A-MAZING, the rooms are beautiful and luxurious, the staff is helpful and kind, the food and wine are fantastic. You really can't beat the 20-meter walk to the beach, with reserved chairs, and umbrellas, and cold water, and fruit, and natural beauty. I love, love, […] love the Boathouse. That said, the noise level from the pool bar was a bit obnoxious after 10:00 and the unnannounced fireworks gave us quite the scare on our first night. In addition, it was rather noisy facing the pool and restaurant, because people were walking in the courtyard at all hours. The stay was generally perfect, but the noise level could be improved with insulation and double-paned glass on the sliding doors. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

This hotel has the nicest beach-front area on Kata with umbrella chairs and tucked at the end of the bay, a bit more serene location.

"Only place to stay on the this beach!"
Lovely hotel just renovated, trendy bar and pool area also used as a beach club for expats. Small but comfortable infinity pool all with direct access to the beach. The beach is public and totally rammed like Spain! But the section in front of the hotel is private so the only less crowded bit, but all the restaurants are on the other side so all day […] there are people walking across. Great food in the restaurant for breakfast. Other meals also fantastic but pricey, lots of beach restaurants just next door great food but still tourist prices. Nice resort, lively and lots to do.

"A Wonderful Place to Stay"
We stayed six nights in the two bedroom penthouse unit at The Boathouse. As someone who travels frequently, I can say that this was one of the nicest accommodation experiences we have ever had. The room was beautifully decorated and located directly above the beach. The hotel is small and intimate and the restaurant's are both excellent (particularly […] The Boathouse Grill). Staff from the French General Manager down were extremely friendly, responsive and competent. We were very impressed how staff in the restaurants took particular concern over our younger daughter's egg and nut allergy. Special meals were prepared without fuss and they were even more careful than we were to make sure that she didn't eat the wrong thing. Every staff member seemed to know who she was and to make sure she avoided the wrong foods. The pool area was picturesque, located directly above the beach. The pool could have been a little bigger, but it still provided a lot of fun for the children and they usually had it to themselves. The spa was also very good (if a little expensive). One small criticism is that it would have been nice if the hotel had a Gym. Overall an outstanding place to stay in a perfect location. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel, shame about the resort."
The hotel was fine, the room was fairly basic but large and clean with a well designed bathroom. However, even by - typically low - Thai standards Kata is run down and dirty, with particularly poor restaurants and little else. This becomes an issue if the weather is not good. My wife and I checked out after two days to avoid becoming like those people […] playing cards after dinner in order to keep the restaurant table due to a lack of other options. A rainy holiday in Kata with children is not a pleasant thought. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The Boathouse is at best a 4 star hotel in a great location. Their restaurant is good, but very ....very over priced compared to the surrounding beach restaurants. No question, Kata beach is one of the best beaches I've been, but the staff could help in cleaning some of the garbage that gets washed up. Only after I mentioned the amount of garbage on […] the beach to the staff, then they cleaned it up. I don't understand with such surrounding beauty, they wouldn't take better care of their beach, which I'm sure is the main reason anyone stays at the Boathouse. Their rooms are average for the price and the hospitality service is slightly better than average. Not sure if I would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Boathouse great except for the 'muzac'"
My husband & I selected The Boathouse for our holiday as it is located at Kata Beach which is not the night club hot spot of Phuket. We couldn't flaw the staff who served our daily breakfast and those at the restaurant, spa and maintaining the beach lounges - just fantastic. Our flight home did not leave until 8:30pm and although we had to vacate our […] room at noon, the staff at The Boathouse continued to provide excellent service, including very comfortable showering facilities after we had lounged by the pool for the afternoon. We only have one negative comment about The Boathouse: they insist on playing the same droning 'elevator muzac' (every song with the same monotonous tempo) in the outdoor bar area until 11:00 - 12:00 every night at a very loud level. Every room on the same side of the hotel has to endure that noise every single night. If we'd wanted to listen to music until very late at night, we would have booked a hotel in Patong!

"Kurzurlaub. Sonne. Meer."
Hotel ist sehr gut gepflegt und das Personal auffallend freundlich und hilfsbereit. Nicht so schön war das erste Zimmer im Erdgeschoss, da eine gute Privatsphäre nur bei zugezogenen Vorhängen gegeben war. Der Pool lag eben genau vor unserem Zimmer. Daher haben wir ein Downgrade in der Zimmerkategorie vorgenommen und sind in den ersten Stock gezogen, […] wo es uns sehr gut gefiel. Etwas unschön ist der teilweise fehlende Bürgersteig entlang der Strasse in Richtung der Hauptstrasse, wo die meisten Restaurants, Märkte und Geschäfte in Kata gelegen sind.

家族で3泊しました。海の目の前でサーフィンするのに部屋から裸足で出かけられます。ホテル前のビーチではリクライニングチェアで休もうとするとすぐにスタッフがタオルと水を用意してくれ親切に対応してくれます。部屋も清潔でタオルもこまめに変えてくれました。部屋から波をチェックすることもできました。 ただ、レストランはかなり高額なので我が家はほとんど外食で済ませていました。レストラン、スパ、送迎などはホテルの外の店よりもかなり高額です。でもそういったものはホテルの周りにすべて揃っているので不自由はなかったです。 日本人が少なく日本語対応のスタッフもいません。チェックイン時にデポジットに9000B支払うのですがその意味がよくわからなく困りましたがそれも何とかなりました。次回もまた是非利用したいと思います。Genuine Expedia guest review

"Magical location right on Kata Beach"
12/14/14 LotusEaterNewZealand New Zealand
My partner and I spent 5 nights at The Boathouse and had a wonderfully relaxing time. The hotel's location is magical, it meant we could walk straight out onto the beach for an early morning swim before breakfast each day, and sit in the bar with a cocktail watching the sunset each evening before dinner. The hotel is justifiably famous for its food and we thoroughly enjoyed all our meals and were particularly impressed byt the whole sea bass we had one night for dinner. The staff were unfailingly friendly and helpful and I was impressed that Kitty, our breakfast waitress, remembered our room number and preference for coffee after our first visit. It was the extra things that made this a special place, the little treats delivered to our room each day, the flax decoration(one day a fish, the next a crab) put on our pillows each night, the birthday cake delivered to our room on my partner's birthday. It was also lovely to be invited to the manager's cocktail evening where we not only had several delicious cocktails but had so many of the delectable canapes that we didn't need dinner that night. Although the rooms are not huge and the bathroom was fairly compact, we had everything we needed and access to a private terrace with amazing sea views meant that we felt that we had all the space we could want.

"Heaven on Earth"
12/12/14 Vicki P Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
What an amazing resort The Boathouse is, This was our 1st trip to Phuket and we could not have picked a better place to stay. From the moment we arrived we were shown to the Restaurant couches facing the amazing sea view, a cold towel and cold drink were provided and at that moment we knew this was going to be heaven on earth. A quick tour of facilities was given and we were quickly shown to our rooms. The rooms were clean and our view of the spa pool and sea were beautiful. This was my husbands 50th Birthday trip and on his birthday flowers were to delivered to our room with a lovely card. A few hours later cake arrived and the gorgeous staff sang Happy Birthday to him, it was So special. The breakfast at Rekata was amazing, beachfront dining at its best. We also ate at the restaurant on 2 occasions and the food was delicious. Outstanding service by all the staff but a special mention to the beautiful Pear who we fell in love with and will never forget, Kitty at Rekata greeted us with her beautiful smile every morning and the pool and maintenance man whose name I have forgotten but who's toothless smile is the best I have ever seen and made our day every time we crossed paths and ofcourse Jarinee who was delightful and so professional. Thank you to all at The Boathouse for the best holiday we could have asked for, we will be back again and will only stay at the Boathouse in Kata. You made us feel at home and your service was the best I have ever experieced
"A good holiday"
12/12/14 Ian C
I felt that the Boathouse was good but it didn't quite live up to a 5 star rating, the rooms were spotless and the staff extremely attentive and thoughtful, unfortunately the resort was just a little tired. The pool needed a good clean and perhaps to be tiled to modernize it and bring it up to modern standards. The restaurants were excellent, and the food superb, all things considered a good holiday and great location.
"Over-priced average food."
This review is not about the hotel as we did not stay there, it is limited to the restaurant service only. If you've heard the saying "fur coat and no knickers" then this accurately summarises our entire restaurant experience. We were collected from our hotel by a pleasant and polite driver in a lovely clean people carrier; and upon arrival greeted by a lovely receptionist. The restaurant ambiance is very good and presented within a super location, day or night. The Gosset Brut Excellence champagne price is quite good value at only 3,700BHT; about double the European shop retail price of €40. A live pianist really sets the mood but sadly that's the best of the experience over with, as the food and even the table service was below par. Now it's rare in Thailand (even Phuket) not to get a overly-friendly Thai service with good eye contact, but that's what we received. There's a difference between a real snooty service, as if one were dining at Downton Abbey or at one of the 50 or so mega-class fine diners from across the planet, but the food is at best mediocre. The fricassée mushroom starter was quite tasteless, as was the dry tuna steak, served pink yet still dry; in my experience fresh is moist when pink...especially in Thailand! Extra sides are a must for the hungry, maybe it would be worth the waitress mentioning this when taking the order? Overall, priced at a months salary for a local employee, this dining experience for two, which initially offered plenty of eastern promise, was incredibly overpriced average food and table service.
"Best hotel on Kata Beach"
12/03/14 yoliemar6 San Dimas, California
We enjoyed 4 nights at this lovely hotel on Kata Beach. We had spent our first 7 nights at another great hotel away from the beach since we planned on doing a lot of island excursions and were going to be out and about most of the day, and decided we would treat ourselves our last 4 nights at the Boathouse where we could just enjoy the location and just chill out. The location is just perfect and IMO the best hotel on Kata Beach. Our stay included breakfast which was just perfect. They have a light buffet breakfast and then you can also close an item from their breakfast menu. Great choices and the latte's were divine!! They have two small pools overlooking the ocean, these pools are more for just relaxing, but you have the ocean right at your feet, so if your looking to sprawl out, just go swim in the ocean, the water is fantastic. All the staff are just wonderful and come around frequently to provide you with refreshing cold water and also pass out fresh fruit around 1130 each day when you are lounging poolside. This was a nice touch. This is a boutique hotel is not very large, and this is what attracted us to stay here. We did not dine at the hotel, there are many good restaurants so close by that we wanted to experience going out each evening to explore around. The rooms are very comfortable and the bed is heaven. We were upgraded to an ocean front room on the bottom floor right outside the second small pool they have, so we felt like we had our own private pool since this one is located away from the main pool, but still facing the ocean. We had a amazing and relaxing last 4 nites in Phuket and we thank the Boathouse for providing a lovely experience.
"Great French/Thai Restaurant"
11/26/14 steven w Carmel, California
After reading tripadvisor reviews, we made reservation at Boathouse thru hotel concierge. It has a beautiful setting right by the beach. Wonderful ambience with live jazz music. Good selection of Thai and French cuisine. The menu is somewhat overwhelming and pricy (Bht 4000 for two). Ambience is romantic and excellent for couple dinner, service is a bit slow, food was slightly above average.
"Charming hotel on Kata Beach"
11/24/14 extrapagespassport Cambridge, Massachusetts
The hotel is perfectly situated on the water, has a marvelous staff, and the rooms are large and well appointed. We enjoyed our stay here and the staff made it very special. Breakfast is great - try the thai crab cake. Families with toddlers and children will appreciate the small pool overlooking the beach; those without children will want a room with a balcony overlooking the water but away from the kids. We loved the library just across from our balcony. We also enjoyed the happy hour where you can sit and sip a drink watching the beautiful sunset. The restaurant is expensive and the food is quite indifferent; there are far better local options to be had. Did not like the spa. I am a spa addict, spend insane amounts of money at them and have had literally hundreds of massages. This one didn't do it for me. Despite a price tag that rivals lovely top end spas, this has all the charm of an office complex and it was truly one of the worst massages I've ever had. I would have gotten up and left if it would not have been horribly rude but the masseuse (which I hesitate to call her because that suggests a certain amount of training) was absolutely incompetent and inept. I had booked several other treatments but cancelled them. But the spa aside, we had a terrific stay.
11/22/14 GGSS83 Guayaquil, Ecuador
My wife and I booked this hotel because we found a great deal through their web site, which included free daily breakfast, a sea view room (3rd floor) and 20% off on dining. We arrived past midnight to Phuket, so we booked a transfer from the airport with the hotel. The room was very, very nice, with a king size bed (and soo comfortable), a nice big bathroom with everything you may need, a shower with lots of water pressure, a mini bar well equiped (which we used every day, since prices in Phuket are ridiculously cheap! I mean, less than US$ 2 for a beer from the minibar). We also had a very small balcony, with enough space for 2 chairs, where we sat and watched the sea (partial views, because of the trees and the terrace lounge on the 2nd floor, but beautiful anyway). The service was outstanding. They were very helpful and, even they sometimes didn't understand everything, they always did their best to help us out. The breakfasta at RE KATA was delicious. You had a buffet with fruits, cereals, juice and a la carte for hot plates, both thai and western. It's true the pool is small, but I didn't use it to swim, just to relax. If I wanted to swim, I would go to the beach (just outside), which, in fact, is amazing, specially at the end where the hotel is located. The wine and grill restaurant serves also excellent food, and has so many variety of wines that we spent many minutes trying to decide for one. We also went to the in-site spa on our first day (we had a 24 hour flight from lax). It was a very nice experience. Some reviews say the hotel was noisy with kids, but that was not our case. In overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel. Just sitting by the pool watching the beach is worth everything.
