Fabulous time spent with exceptional service and food in the best location on Kata Beach. The kitchen and staff obviously have pride in all aspects of the food they serve in the returaunt and even on the beach this service did not faulter. Thanks for a great holiday Barrie Gill

Dear Mr. Gill,

Thank you for visiting us. We are glad you have enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back again soon. I really like your photos of the view of our Jacuzzi and especially the one taken from the water looking towards the Boathouse. A great angle; I hope your camera survived that shot!

With sunny regards,

Lisa Sol

we had the most wonderful, wonderful time at The Boathouse. We could fault nothing from the great service, the food to our beautiful suite overlooking Kata Beach. Thank you so much for a very memorable holiday.

I loved my 3 day stay at this hotel and there isn't anything I could really say that was negative. Airport pickup was perfect and arrival to the hotel was seamless. The room itself is a decent size. Bathroom and balcony were a little on the small side but it was no problem. Perfectly adequate. The staff on the beach are great. Constantly refilling your water and giving you cold towels and little fruit skewers and keeping non-hotel guests off the exclusive hotel loungers. There are plenty of loungers to go round so it was never a problem finding a nice spot. The pool and jacuzzi looked nice but we never used them. The location is simply perfect. Have a great breakfast then 10 steps away you are on your sun lounger ready to while the day away doing not a lot on Kata beach. Snorkelling is great just in front of the hotel and to the left a little bit. There are nice snack/drinks kiosks nearby for cheap food and beer. The Ska bar at the end is also excellent. The hotel seems to have a very high staff to guest ratio so the service is simply faultless. Service with a smile. I would not hesitate to stay here again in the future. It is the type of place where I can see myself returning to time and time again.

The first time I stayed at the Boathouse was in 1993, back then there were only two hotels on the beach and a handful of tourists. I have since stayed another 3 times but each time even though the beach has become very crowded the hotel and own private beach still remain as good today as it was then.

The food is exceptional and there are not many hotels you can enjoy your meals right next to the beach. The staff are excellent and if you want to relax and stay where it is peaceful and quiet then the boathouse is the place to stay.

I love it.

No wonder the hotel name indicates it belongs to a member of the Royal Family. I was treated like a king. Run by one of the most exeprient hotel manager in Thailand, the place is works near to perfection. The warm atmosphere makes you feel at home. The location could not be better. It share the same beach with Club Med. At the restaurant, do not miss the lobster ravioli. A must taste specialty. And much more...

We spent a wonderfully relaxing week at Mom Tri's boathouse in September. It is one of only two hotels that have direct beachfront access, all the other Kata hotels are inland. As a result there are sunbeds outside the front (with cold drinking water and fruit delivered as you relax) and from the terrace and restaurant you have a view of the beach. The hotel is relatively small (about 35 rooms) and the staff were exceptional, they knew our names and tea order by the second morning and were extremely helpful when my wife had a minor accident that needed a first aid kit. The management has created a real 'family' feeling within the hotel. There were inter department football matches on the beach in the afternoon with many of the other staff members entusiastically cheering on their chosen team.

Breakfasts were very good with plenty of choice. We had dinner in the hotel on two occasions and both meals were superb, not cheap as you will pay European prices but the menu was inventive with a mix of Thai and Western dishes. There are plenty of restaurants and bars in Kata town but adjacent to the hotel are the only ones that are on the beach. We tried all three for lunch/dinner and enjoyed them all. There is also the Reggae bar, a great place for a sundowner or late evening drink.

Our room was spacious with a lovely view of the sea from the balcony. There is free wi fi throughout the hotel.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Mom Tri's and hope to return there someday.

Can only echo others on the how nice this hotel was .Had a beautiful view from room overlooking the jaccusi and out onto the beach. Breakfast was very good and set us up for the day. Can't comment on the restaurants as there is such a wealth of bars and good restaurants close by at very good prices we never ate at the hotel.
The pool was very nice and we often had it to ourselves as people were all on the beach.
The staff were all friendly and helpfull and nothing was a problem.
The road immediately out the front is quite busy with no pavement so be wary but no real problem. The only thing I would suggest is a bell for reception because half the time when you want to pick up your key in the evening the staff are in the back office and don't notice you.
Definately worth a stay.
