The travel agent recommended this hotel having stayed there herself last year. She sold it as an upmarket hotel, friendly, great location set on a great safe beach. She was right on all areas. The hotel is fabulous and one thing she forgot to mention was the great restaurant serving some really nice food with a very extensive wine list too!

Overall, great fun for the kids with the pool and the soft sand beach. Away from the hustle and bustle. A little bit of a long transfer from the airport to reach it but well worth it. It is a liitle expsensive (especially the wines) but overall not too bad.

Everyone very kind, service orientated and great with the children

You must try this one if you want to splurge a bit!

I stuggled whether to gove the Boathouse a 4 or a 5. Based on the roms and the price, which are a little dated and expensive, I would have rated this boutique hotel a 4. However the staff and the location are 5 plus stars. I don't think you could find a better beach front location in all of Phuket, it's that good. You are literally 20 steps from the crystal clear Andaman sea. The staff really make for an unforgettable stay. The restaurant and bar staff basically memorize your drinks and preferences and always greet you with a huge Thai smile. The housekeeping staff were equally wonderful and the guys that handle the beach chairs could not fave done a better job. The NYE's celebration was a home run as well. All in all, I would absolutely return this wonderful escape from reality.

it is definitely overrated...we have been to thailand a few times and tried different hotels in Phuket, all we can say is Mom Tri's Boathouse has a good location on a fabulous beach, the rooms are average, service is very local, some staff seem tricky... You definitely can find much better hotels for the same price.

After spending hours on Trip Advisor to find the perfect hotel for my partner and I to stay we decided on Mom Tri's Boathouse, because of the location, smaller boutique hotel, price and the wonderful beach front restaurant. This place didn't dissapoint one bit. We decided to go with the 7 Night Escape package which included airport transfers, three massages each and two dinners each in there restaurant.

After hours in transit on our way to Phuket we were exhausted when we arrived at the airport. It was so great to have a luxury car waiting for us with bottles of cold water and cold refreshing towels. We were arriving late at night but the hotel were so delightful when we arrived and had our welcoming drink ready. We were quickly checked in and taken to our room. We had booked a standard room (206) which had a lovely view of the beach and water. The rooms are simple, fairly small but nicely furnished and we were perfectly comfortable. It was a nice feeling waking in the morning and being able to see the surfers in the water from lying in bed. They provided fresh fruit everyday in your room and the housekeeping always had an oil burner going in the bathroom with a beautiful jasmine fragrance. Lovely touches!

The breakfast at the hotel was fantastic, which included fresh fruit, cereal, yoghurt, bread, french pastries, eggs any style you prefer made very quickly, a fresh juice station which included your fresh fruit and vegetables. It was lovely having our breakfast while watching the surfers at Kata Beach.

We had two lovely meals at there famous restaurant Boathouse Wine & Grill. The service was fantastic, food and wine was lovely and they provided the ladies with a red rose at the end of your meal. Both times we had a beach front table and it was such a beautiful setting. We had the Thai degustation menu for our first meal, it was lovely however they were very quick to bring out each course and we were feeling very full at the end. The second time we ate at the restaurant we had the French degustation menu and asked if they could slow down the courses. The food was again amazing and we felt very comfortable at the end of the meal having eaten slower.

The beach boys were great. They were very efficent setting up an umbrella and fresh towels on your lounge. They also provided chilled water, cold refreshment towels and fruit sticks throughout the day. If the ice had melted in your glass they would quickly replace it with fresh chilled water. The massages we had at hotel were fantastic and so relaxing.

It was very sad having to leave Mom Tri's Boathouse, the staff were so lovely and always happy to help. We will definately be returning to Mom Tri's Boathouse and would like to Thank all the staff for making our stay truely wonderful!!

Mom Tri's met all our expectations. What we saw in pictures on their website was exactly how it was.. beach, accommodation and food ... was delicious and beautifully presented.... the Chef Awards that Mom Tri's have coveted over the past 3 years, attest to that.

The staff of Mom Tri's were absolutely wonderful, really made you feel comfortable, as only the Thai people can. This is not just another Resort, this is a special place where the emphasis is put on quality and making the guest feel special. For example, it was our 25th wedding anniversary, and when we arrived at 11.30pm there in our room was a gorgeous orchid and red rose flower arrangement and a beautiful cake decorated with pink and wite roses, that the chef had made.
Also 1 day from our departure from Australia, although we had confirmation of our booking, Mom Tri's had not received the booking by fault of the travel agent, so Mom Tri's contacted the travel agent and got confirmation ... just goes to show the high level of service and professionalism.

As I have said the staff are really special, and not only we realised this, but also the Owner of Mom Tri's. As September is as we found out a special month. Over 10 days or so the Management organise games, for the staff, of both establishments, The Boathouse and Villa Royale - which is another lovely Guesthouse just around the next beach.. Kata Noi. All the staff, including Chefs, Kitchen Hands, Waiting Staff, Cleaners, Management, Reception.. over the 10 days participate at 4pm in Soccer, and Volleyball games for an hour. And for us after a day on the beach it was great to sit on the verandah of the boathouse with a cocktail and watch the competition and those that werent playing were out with us cheering and giving encouragment. Then on another day they have a staff party, where they play different games on the beach and prizes are won and a lovely lunch is served.
The Management appreciate their staff , and it shows. (some have been there 19 & 15, 7 years!)

Having said all that, it really is the best location, right on the beach, the verandah is set with tables and a huge tree overhangs the pergola above and sitting there, either in the morning for breakfast, or dining at night under the fairy lights, with a red sunset going down behind the island in the bay (which is directly in front of the boathouse) is.... magical.

This is not just a place to stay in some huge hotel with hundreds of rooms, this is THE place to stay where as the old saying goes... good things comes in small packages.

Would love to keep it our little secret, but that wouldnt be fair.
We are going back next year.
