We were happy about our stay at the Boathouse in 2012 and expectations were therefore extra high when we opted to return this year in October 2013.
Everything worked as a charm again this year. Staff is friendly and helpful. They remember your name and your preferences. The hotel is on the beach and you get your own lounge chairs with the staff ensuring umbrellas, fresh water, towels and even fresh fruit snacks. And they keep your chairs clean while you take a dip in the sea.
For Americans: No tipping necessary -what a relief.
Plenty of great local restaurants around, if that's your fancy.
Stayed a week with family and went home happy and satisfied.
Tip: Try to get a room at the ground level to avoid stairs.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms have direct access

Mom tris boat house has a very special feeling to it - it is not for every one but if you like a little exclusivity and a very nice ambiance TRY TRY TRY.

rooms are great but what draws many is the restaurant and the fantastic wine cellar.

Enjoy

Our first trip to Thailand and the resort and staff were amazing !
Cannot recommend highly enough - we will certainly again be staying at the boathouse - even allowing us a very late checkout on our last day
Thanks to all the staff for their welcome

Well everything was absolutely spot on, from the welcome to the room to the pools and the deck chairs on the beach to the location for heading out for the evening, to the wonderful breakfast. I travelled with friends and we felt really well looked after and were lucky with the weather - it is the beginning of the rainy season. They allowed us a late check out on our last day as well. Can't recommend highly enough. Do ask about cocktail happy hour for a sundowner!

My husband and I has a last minute opportunity to have a last minute holiday and Phuket was the destination that came up trumps as direct flight from Sydney was an imperative. Having not been to Phuket before we were concerned about not staying somewhere too touristy and after some help with trip advisor and some other sites we decided that Kata would be the best place to start the holiday from and from there we found Boathouse.

After the 9 hr flight picked up at the airport and delivered to the hotel, the staff were welcoming and we were just pleased to make it. I booked 4 nights at green season rates which are an absolute bargain for what we got. We booked superior sea view and when we saw we were over the restaurant we asked the 1st morning if we could move to a better sea view and we were happily accommodated. I extended by 1 night cause we were so happy with the location, facilities and great staff. As green season is not too busy and the tides full the beachfront was not too busy so we were really looked after by the guys on the beach who would pour us water, bring fresh fruit sticks and sweep the sand off our sun lounges while we were in swimming.

We found the beds comfortable, not something you always get in Asian hotels for soft westeners, very clean, great housekeeping staff, the breakfasts in re ka ta stunning and the views fabulous. I was training for a half marathon so got early for a run a couple of times and had beautiful runs to karon but the humidity a killer but great to get out while all was quiet.

I could go on for ever on how much we enjoyed our stay but we headed to phi phi for a new adventure. So to wrap up, Fabulous boutique hotel for first time phuketers, honeymooners, chilled out tourists. THe only negative is nothing to do with the hotel only perhaps some folks who stay are over enthusiastic and not as chilled as the hotel deserves and a little noisy just as one was drifting off to sleep....
