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...

Ground floor room ON the beach. Simply the best location on the beaches that can be found. The Boathouse has a massive old and new world wine cellar (wine is very hard to find in Thailand) Hire a scooter. Tip - eat late nights across the road in the construction site - simply the best fresh seafood in Phuket. (eaten...

The hotel has a relaxed, friendly, slightly old-school colonial feeling. From the pictures we had expected a much more quiet beach but it was actually quite a lively area - though nothing like Patong. The beach (Kata Beach) is a very beautiful stretch and well maintained. The many surfers add to the Hawaiian flair of the place. The service always...

Having just spent seven relaxing mid-July days at the Karon Beach Movenpick Hotel, it was time for my partner and I to move on. We had arranged via phone at the last minute a stay at a hotel at the southern end of Kata Beach but upon arrival it was far from what it was described as and way overpriced....

Not sure if my experience reflects all the raving review here. This is our 2nd night here and we are staying for another 4 nights until we leave for home. We stay in the penthouse which is very spacious but the tree blocked most of our view to the ocean. We were provided with baby amenities which was really thoughtful....

This was our 2nd trip to The Boathouse and we'll continue to go there again and again. I just hope it retains its current charm and boutique quality. Interestingly, Kata Beach has seriously grown in its urban development in the 3 years since we were last there. This trip, we brought our 5 month old and to the staff, he...
