Overview
More
The Boatshed has been adapted to house several functions. Noteworthy here is the fact that its entire existing timber framework has been retained and all the timber cladding has been re-used. The old Boatshed was turned into an expo centre at first. Examples of windows, doors, paint colours, wall finishes, internal and external fittings and finishes were illustrated. The south facade of the boatshed demonstrated colours, porches, ballistrades and overall style of the island architecture. Hence the look and style of that facade. The exceptional refurbishment of The Boatshed adds interest and character to Thesen Harbour Town. The original structure which was basically fully retained lends a unique maritime feel to the building. Currently the inside of The Boatshed houses retail shops on ground floor and The Lofts Boutique Hotel with amazing rooms on the first and second floors.

We had a suite looking over the lagoon with breathtaking views. We could walk to the nearby restaurants, especially the delightful Il du pain which was about 70 metres away (they gave us a breakfast voucher). No complaints except I would probably have re-arranged the...More
