The Beach Boutique House
Ranked #43 of 55 Hotels in Kata Beach
Reviewed 3 December 2008

OVERALL: We were looking for a cozy budget room and got the best deal we could possibly find! This hotel has character.

PROS:
1) Room Value -- booked through latestays.com for just 1,300 baht. That place certainly is worth more than that!

2) The "Boutiqueness" of the hotel -- details, details, details! Love it. They have unique hammock-like chairs across the halls. The room is true to its name... gives you a "beach-y" feeling. The desk in the room is decorated with enclosed sand... cute. And the slippers... better than what you can get in average hotels. They're quite puffy on the feet.=)

3) Proximity to nightlife in Kata -- In the initial walk, you will come across bars with ladies waiting for horny men. But that did not deter us though because they're kept at one side so we walked at the other side (and generally they're safe to pass by, walking briskly=P). After that, we had a good time going through stalls and just having fun with the prices... I saw this pepper & salt shaker that looked cute. The first store I went to sold it for 80 baht. The next store I asked said 180 baht. And the last I asked which was an al fresco makeshift stall by the streets (which I would have thought would give the lowest) demanded 360! We just laughed.=) We concluded the night at Dino park, that's a resto with a jungle-ish dinosaur theme -- a litty higher than the average resto but highly recommended for the ambience and food.

4) Service -- Truly customer is king. I asked for the blue room and they made changes instantly to make that happen. Our flight was not leaving until the evening... we checked out as per their schedule but we went back to get our luggage. Before leaving, I asked for a room where we could freshen up and they gave us the keys to the same room we stayed in... free of charge. Premium hospitality.=)

5) Constuction's over -- was quiet all throughout our stay.=)

CONS:
1) Pool -- we were 2 days early for the opening!

2) Smoke scent in the room -- not sure if it was just me but after a while our room had a whiff of cigarette odor at night (I believe the smell is absent in the daytime because of housekeeping).

3) Water heater -- can get too hot then too cold then too hot then...

4) Hotel taxi fare -- as always, higher than hailing a cab. The thing though is that cabs don't pass by often. They charge 800 baht to the airport. Since there weren't any cabs passing by, I just contracted another deal in a nearby tour agency for 700 baht.

There weren't any reviews at the time that I booked this hotel so I was a little worried about what we would find! Overall the stay was very pleasant.

Pros:

1. Very charming room - ours looked just like the photo!
2. American breakfast (including bacon and yummy sausages) cooked on demand
3. About a 10 minute walk to the quieter end of Kata beach
4. Good internet system - you buy a prepaid card - I think it was 100 THB for 2 hours - and gradually use it up.
5. Staff decorated the room with pretty swans and rose petals because we were honeymooners
6. Friendly, eager to please service
7. The shower water pressure was good

Cons:

1. The lobby and stairs aren't air conditioned. Sometimes they bring out a fan but it's generally quite muggy
2. No lift. Combined with the lack of air conditioning it can be quite a tiring walk to the top floor on a hot day.
3. The hotel is surrounded by construction. It looks like eventually there will be lots of shops and other hotels in the area but currently the surroundings aren't that nice to look at.
4. I think the shower water supply is shared between rooms because sometimes the temperature would change quite drastically mid-shower.

This is one of the cheaper hotels in Kata and I'd recommend it if you want a comfortable hotel for an affordable price (for Phuket anyway!). From what I could see the pool was average but why would you use the pool when gorgeous Kata beach is a short walk away?

VERY IMPORTANT!
The hotel (and the other hotels in the area) are very new. I would recommend having the hotel's address and phone number handy because the airport taxi didn't know where it was, and neither did any of the tour operators we booked with.

I suspect that once construction finishes the area will be much more pleasant, but I also think it will come with a correspondingly higher price tag. If you aren't bothered by the drabness of the immediate surroundings, I think this is a great place to stay (but request a room on a lower floor if you want to avoid a climb to your room).

the beach boutique house is a beautiful wee hotel and was perfect for our stay, after staying 1 night in patong we wanted to get out so moved to kata beach. kata is truly beautiful and relaxed and we initially booked at the beach boutique house for 3nights but ended up spending our entire holiday there! although it is a short walk, 5/10 mins to beach it is just a cute wee friendly hotel, staff were extremely helpful and friendly, house keeping was amazing! very clean room which was beautifully decorated and serviced daily. we had a scooter which was 200 baht a day which was fantastic. so made travelling to and from beach easy. although when we stayed they were building which was pretty noisy we didnt really mind as it was like a wakeup call! once the building of the pool etc is finished it will be a fantastic place to stay, we just used the pool next door which was no issue. overall we had a great experience at the beach boutique house and we hope to go back next year!

Room Tip: Берите номер в "трешке", а не в "четверке" - так дешевле, а номера больше и лучш...
