"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
"Great Location, nice remodel"
This place is awesome, it's all about the location on the south end of Kata Beach. Loved it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great boutique hotel on Kata Beach"
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. The food and restaurants were great, loved the breakfast buffet each morning. It's a convenient location although right on a main drag and we had the impression it was a bit more secluded. Overall loved it and a great […] place to stay for a gals getaway or romantic trip. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"low season just too quite"

"Best Resort on Kata Beach"
The management and all the staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming. The rooms are very clean, comfortable with views and the sound of waves. The bed is wonderfully large with clean linen. The restaurants and ala carte breakfast are superb - Great service, fresh cuisine and beautiful beach atmosphere. Linen serviettes, clean and definitely 6 star. […] The private pool along the beach front listening to the waves with comfortable sun lounges provided the perfect setting, for swimming and lounging the days away with complimentary water and fresh fruit provided. Sunset lounge and library providing a wonderful setting for evenings. Located on Kata Beach with access to shopping and restaurants. Overall, the best resort on Kata Beach. Thankyou Boathouse.

"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. This hotel is probably the best one to stay at if you do choose kata beach. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"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

had a great stay at the Boathouse! its beautiful, and you can walk right out onto the beach. breakfast and dinner at the restaurant were wonderful, and staff was very nice. however, we found out later that the tour we booked through the hotel was way more expensive than booking at other places. overall, a good stay, but expensive.Genuine 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

"Great stay, food and service"
Sadly, we stayed here for only 3 nights. Had an excellent partial ocean view room. Highly recommend hotel, it's directly on the south end of Kata beach. Fabulous staff and service. Our package included breakfasts that were excellent. Ate dinner once in the highend restaurant and it was excellent on all counts. Chose to eat Thai dinner on ReKata side once and were less impressed; pay the extra bucks, it's worth it. Didn't discover the sunset terrace till final night; very nice place with a library. Happy hour card last two lines says "largest selection of wines by the glass - 285 baht"; only the 3 Chilean wines at the top are that price. Street out front has no real walking area to shops, very scary. Recommend walking north on beach and cut over to get to pedestrian friendly shopping area. Free Wifi offered two ways, through room tv (faster) and resort wide. Highly recommend Boathouse.
"Christmas and New Year holiday"
01/24/15 MarjaM40 Kauniainen
We stayed in the Boathouse for 3rd time, now during Christmas and New Year 2014-2015. This time we were 4 adults and 3 children in different ages. The location is superb and the pool area and the beach just next to it were ideal for our group. The personnel in the reception, in the main and club restaurants and in the pool area were very friendly and helpful. In our opinion the athmosphere in the whole hotel is a result of the General Manager who was moving in the hotel area frequently during the days. There are sufficiently places to eat and shop in walking distance around the hotel.

With Boathouse, you are probably paying for a pricey spot on Kata beach. Nice location, close to just about everything. But thats just about it. The room was rather small, air con made noise and the bed was horribly uncomfortable. That saying, one 1.5 litres bottle of water was provided instead of 2 small bottles, a nice green touch. Pro: Near everything in Kata Nice General Manager Small but awesome pool Con: Noisy Air con Uncomfortable bed Small room Pillows....lots of pillows which seem to be more decorative than functional.

Once again superb like every year.Great food excellent romos and a special note for the staff,without exception.Great wine collection from all over the world. Highly recomendable for couples and solos.
Great spot with awesome bones and calm vibe. Beautiful pool and spacious rooms. Wasn't trying to be too funky and modern. Very suitable for families. Loved the Hendricks pony cocktail! Hopefully will be able to go back for a longer stay in years to come.
"Boathouse by Montara, Kata Beach Phuket"
01/13/15 Graeme B Ulsan, South Korea
My wife and I stayed at the Boathouse from Boxing Day 14 through to 5th January 15. We had an executive sea view room on the second floor which opened out onto a large terraced area and our own private sunbeds. We both enjoyed our stay even though it was very expensive. The highs and lows were: Highs: Nice room plus the hotel location is superb (right on the beach) The Boat house restaurant is well recommended for its food and we had a very nice meal - not cheap but well worth it for a special occasion. The Re Ka Ta restaurant was also good especially for breakfast (and Sunday brunch) with views out to see and along the beach. Lows: Ridiculously slow internet speed - I would have paid for higher speed but were not made aware by staff that this was available. Use of facilities by others really irked us given the high price we paid - you can just walk off the street and spend the day sunbathing (for a fee but if you eat and drink there it is effectively free!! The hotel has been squeezed in to a small plot and sometimes it feels like this. There is no gym. G & C Buchan
"Seeing is believing."
01/11/15 PaymasterCyprus Cyprus
My wife and I stayed at the Boathouse from Christmas Day 14 to New Years Day 15. We had a sea view room on the second floor which opened out onto a large terraced area. Ideal for solitary sunbathing. The Boat house is world renowned for its food and does not disappoint; OK it is not cheap but you get what you pay for. Besides there are a variety of reasonably priced Restaurants within easy reach and they cater for all tastes. The Accommodation though not big was most comfortable and spotlessly cleaned daily with a spruce up turn down service in the evening. I note from other reports about the issue of sunbeds around the Pool. These are operated on a first come first serve basis and may be reserved during the low season when the Resort is not running at full capacity. Despite the paucity of actual beach beds the Boathouse does supply( Free ) double beach mats and towels on the beach area directly in front and below the pool. We found the staff extremely helpful and friendly with most speaking relatively good English. The Breakfast and lunch meals are served at the RE KA Ta Beach Club. A modern well appointed Restaurant and Bar with great seating overlooking the Kata Beach and Sea coast. The breakfast Menu is designed to be both traditional and tempting with some unusual egg combination dishes for the more discerning palate. The seafood buffet is wonderful and always plays to a packed house. Ensure to book in advance to avoid disappointment. All in all a lovely place to holiday and enjoy the good life. It is a credit to the GM Marie-Laure Fleury who is always on the scene and takes time to interact with the Guests. My wife and I would certainly stay at the Boathouse in the future.
"A bit of imagination and bad eyesight would upgrade you to a 4 star hotel"
01/09/15 CCW75 London
Service - 1. The receptionists are not particularly friendly or helpful.. They speak broken English and can't make any recommendations for restaurants or anything else. They forgot to tell us there is higher speed wifi in the room so we struggled with the hotel general wifi for our whole stay until the very last day when the general wifi just wasn't working at all. 2. House cleaning is helpful. My son peed in bed and they changed the mattress without a fuss. The cleaning staff is generally very courteous and friendly. 3. The pool boys are not that helpful. I have mostly serviced myself in terms of water and towels. Room 1. Old and tired. Stupid toilet doors (with springs) kept trying to bite my kids' hands. 2. Nowhere to hang hand towels near the sinks, the shower or the bath. Nowhere to put personal hygenie items in the toilets. 3. We have kids so we tend to go to bed earlish. The crazy fireworks woke the kids up every night. 4. Design of hotel is very strange so that most of the ocean view don't get full access to ocean view. There is always a bit of court yard or something else. Only the restaurants get the perfect view. Basically the place is stripped to bare essentials. Outside 1. Very tiny pool, no gym 2. Feels like a motel without much decoration to speak of Food 1. Expensive but ok for the western food. Meat in fried rice is too hard. Noodles is too salty and vegetable too hard. Beach 1. Clear water and fine sand. No complaints. Would I come back? No.
"The Boathouse for the 7th time...."
01/08/15 Balut_Jensen Copenhagen, Denmark
.... we keep coming back and we never leave disappointed! Yes its not cheap, yes, you won't find fantastic shopping close by, yes there are regular fireworks and yes, due to regulations, The Boathouse can no longer have beach chairs on the beach so the area around the pool is congested, but heck, we will still come back. The staff are 100%, from Boyd, to the restaurant manager Kai to "X" (who has a son we appropriately named XS....), they couldn't have done more to make our stay perfect. Location, on the beach, is superb. Service likewise. Rooms have been upgraded and if you want to avoid the beach chair/pool issue, get a superior room where you have your own chairs and area above the restaurant. Breakfast is superb. We never had a bad meal over 12 years visiting. Free WIFI works well, without restrictions. Daily fresh fruit and water replenishments. Only suggestions for improvements: 1. don't allow guests to reserve sun loungers by placing a book or hat on them, reserving them for use almost "any time of the day" (should be first come first serve, with bodies on the spot), 2. offer discounts in the restaurants for returning guests as a reward for loyalty and more importantly, enticing guests to eat in-house, 3. offer a regular free shuttle (boat or mini van) to Patong and other nearby locations for shopping/visits, 4. get a Boathouse boat and have sunset cruises and 5. offer deals and/or upgrades to guests who show loyalty and continue to spend their holiday money at The Boathouse.
