I fell in love with this hotel as soon as we arrived for a romantic holiday for 5 nights, greeted by smiling helpful staff, who gave us a free drink and then showed us around the hotel, explaining all we needed to know to start our wonderful holiday here. The hotel is right on the beach, with breath taking views of the beach and sea. We had a Sea view room with views of the beach and sea and also a balcony with two chairs and a table. The room its self was a good size with comfortable beds, your very own coffee machine, which is so fantastic to be able to make fresh coffee, when ever you want. Fresh fruit provided everyday and a mini bar fridge full with everything from water, milk, soft drinks to beers and eats.
There is a safe provided for your valuables and also cupboard space for your clothes.
The bathroom and shower were very good.
The air conditioning was also very good.
The maid service was fantastic, with clean bed linen daily and the room cleaned everyday, with nice touches.
There are two restaurants, the main restaurant being in the main building, with the ambience of a top class restaurant, with someone playing a piano and beautiful views looking out into the sea, with the sun setting in the red shy at night. How romantic is that. Wow.
The food is extremely good and very well presented, with a choice of either French or Thai cuisine. Chef Rattana specialises in Thai food and she is exceptional in creating wonderful dishes. The choice of wines to choose from, are incredible, but they come at a cost.
The other restaurant is in the newly built RE KA TA CLUB ON THE BEACH. This is where you get your lovely freshly prepared breakfast everyday. They also serve Lunch and dinner here and this is prepared by a new chef from South Africa. The food here is also of very high quality with good presentation and very tasty. The Tenderloin, Sea bass and soft shell crab were wonderful.
The staff at both restaurants were fantastic and always smiling and very helpful.
The bar staff at the club on the beach are really very good and you might be lucky enough the see the barmen make cocktails, like u have never seen them be made before. Throwing and catching bottles and glasses in the air, while making your favourate cocktail. What fantastic entertainment.
The Spa is really very very good indeed and its not that expensive.
The music in the beach club is organised by their own DJ with a mix of colombian and spanish music.
Overall I think this has been the best ever romantic holiday ever in one of the best hotels in Phuket, with the most wonderful friendly staff you could ever meet.
Thank you very much to the staff and management at the Boathouse Hotel and giving myself and my girlfriend the best time ever.
I will be back without a doubt and I recommend this hotel to everyone.
