Boomerang Village Resort
Ranked #19 of 55 Hotels in Kata Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 July 2010

Such an easy hotel to stay in. Kind staff, small little 'business center' with a PC & wifi next to the pool in a pretty wooden structure, wifi in the rooms, and a lovely breakfast.
The rooms were spacious and well-decorated, including petals on the beds, and has a really unique feel up a winding path with each bungalow room built into the hillside, and a fountain in the entrance.
Kata is fine - a nice long beach but I wouldn't base a holiday there. We headed over to Railey Beach which was terrific.
Make sure you come to this one, and not the Boomerang Bungalows, which are decidedly less idyllic.

We were concerned by the few critical reviews but when we got there, we had an absolutely fabulous and relaxing time! The room was immaculate, tastefully decorated, comfortable and cozy! The pool was wonderful and there was always a light breeze in the air (from location on a little hill?)

Staff are very friendly and there are a few trainee waitresses on site. The trainees were well, I guess still training so they often had to run back and forth to check things with the supervisor(?) and were a bit awkward when serving. We really did not mind because they were always polite and hey, good service had to be learned somewhere right?

The hotel was a 10-15min walk from the main shopping streets and the beach front but that did not bother us because we always waited for the hotel car to take us downtown. Also, when you book tours and spas, the business sends complimentary transport to take you to and from your trip anyhow. Alternatively, take a taxi, the Reception staff can help you call for one, easy!

We would recommend this hotel in a heart beat! And we had, to 2 of our friends just this morning! We appreciate the effort that the owner and staff have put in this place. Well done!

Stayed here for 3 nights with my wife and the only thing that I can say... PERFECT! It's my wife birthday and we also celebrating her graduation. I ask the Boomerang gang to prepare something special for the occasion and it turned out to be better than expected. We have the Spaghetti with Crab (extremely delicious!) and we have the candle light dinner at the poolside and it was very beautiful. The staff is very, very professional even they don't speak excellent English (so do us... :)

The room itself is awesome! We stayed at the Deluxe room on top of the hill overlooking the town and Andaman sea. The gang also prepare an excellent bed setting with flowers and swans towel arrangement on day 2 which surprised me and my wife. Lucky me... :)

Pool happy hour from 4 to 5 is value for money (buy 1 get another free). We never missed it even for a day. The environment nearby the pool is so relaxing, and that is exactly what we looking for on this trip (away from the kids), after our trip to Tokyo and Pangkor 3 weeks earlier.

The price is unbelievable. With the service and facilities provided, we would expect to pay more.

We would like to recommend it especially to couples looking for a romantic and relaxing getaway, as one of the resort guest were saying... "This place is just like heaven".. we totally agree with him...

Finally, to the Boomerang staff... Thank you very much for your kind hospitality and excellent services... We'll see you in the future...

I stayed here for 6 nights earlier this month specifically to work on a new business venture and for me this place was almost perfect.
I am not really a fan of the girlie bar scene but unfortunately this is reality for most of Phuket and the walk from the Boomerang to the Beach meant receiving the usual come-ons from the local girlie brigade.
If you do choose to stay in Kata then the Boomerang would be the only choice.
Great staff.
Lovely pool.
Very decent breakfast.
Superb Deluxe room.
The rooms have a safe and the internet is free. The speed was very good and apart from the occasional blip in the reception overall it was perfect for my purpose and I used the internet solidly throughout my stay there.
The management here obviously have a genuine interest in their guests and the girl on main reception was incredibly professional at her job.
When I left I was given a leaving gift.
Highly recommended!

A beautiful, small and charming place with great rooms and a nice pool. Extremely attentive service, very kind, will do anything and everything to help you and will not charge extra for it even if for thing other places would. They also give you a small gift when you leave. it makes you feel at home.

The only down side, it's a bit far from the center (Patong is about 35 min) and not all taxi drivers know where is it. But it's worth it for the peaceful and blissful quiet of this place. I have great memories.

We have just spent eight nights at Boomerang and our intention was to have a relaxing time and Boomerang fitted the bill perfectly. The restaurant reopened on our first full day which was great. Breakfast is served from 8am until 1pm and because the resort is intimate, guests get to know one another in the dining room. The staff just keep on making coffee for you, and with a smile! It's only a few minutes walk to Kata beach and the hilly bit on the way back up is only short (less than a minute) and very manageable. There's a handy 7/11 on the main road if you need extra supplies. Our room was clean and there were plenty of towels every day. We had our own outdoor area with comfortable chairs and a table. The food in the dining room is very good, a little more expensive than in Kata but not prohibitively so. The pool is gorgeous and very clean. If you need a taxi, reception will order it for you and they also arrange the taxi (and the price) to the airport so you are not hassled. We had a wonderful time there and we would recommend it to anyone not wanting a large, impersonal resort. The only suggestion I would make is that maybe the resort shouldn't be open to children under the age of 12. The day before we left a family with three young children arrived and the pool isn't really big enough for inflatables and splashing about. It also disturbed the tranquility of the resort. I believe Boomerang is best suited to adults.

We returned to Boomerang Cottages on April 30th and stayed 4 nights. We stayed there last year and I wrote a review, but thought an update would be nice.

We arrived by rented car and walked to the office, opened the door and walked in. We were greeted nicely and told to sit. Then the bill was brought. A few minutes after that a glass of orange juice and a cold towel arrived. The orange juice was fresh squeezed and the towel was nice on such a hot day. I had forgotten that Boomerang expects full payment on check in.

This time we got the Family Pool Suite 114 which was right next to the room we had last year. Quickly got settled in and went for a look round. They have added a small computer room, which is open sided, and a veranda restaurant and bar with a beautiful view but again only umbrellas for protection which was fine while we were there as it did not rain this year.

The room was again spectacular, with even a personalized greeting. A full king and beautiful bunk beds for the kids. The air conditioner had been recently serviced as it was very cool and quiet. I do love the soft robes the hotel provides. The bath was very clean and we all loved the rain shower.

The ambiance of the place is still the same, the luxurious and beautiful feelings you get as you laze by the pool and listen to the ever present soft music. It is really in another world above Kata. The grounds are still kept immaculately, and are even more beautiful one year later.

But some things need to be addressed. We are a family with 12 year old twin daughters. One thing we enjoyed about Boomerang is the feeling for the family as they provide bunk beds free of charge in the family rooms. But this year something changed. We enjoyed using the refrigerator/mini bar you provided last year. Being that we have kids, we kept yogurt, orange juice, and a few soft drinks in there. In addition I would throw in a couple of cans of beer to have on the balcony, as the wife and kids showered. It was just so nice to have for the kids as the restaurant does not serve breakfast until 8:30 but my kids are up and hungry at 7. Then when we came home after a hot day to have a cold beer in the fridge, and even a bottle of wine for the wife was just heaven.

So we did the same thing this year, only to find a notice on our refrigerator the last day saying that no food or drink from outside could be brought onto the hotel property. I was shocked to see the sign because it is advertised as a refrigerator and its a family room. I have stayed in many hotels around the world, and in fact I teach hotel management, but have never seen a sign like this on a refrigerator. Especially added while the guest is in residence.

How much profit is necessary? We had a couple of delicious meals there, as well as cocktails with friends we invited to see the property. Of course I will be going back but at the same time, it wont feel quite the same. Hope the management enjoys the bottle of chilled wine we left at reception when we left.
