“Absolute Perfection in Kata Beach”
Reviewed 24 April 2009

First and foremost I have stayed in hotels all around the world (both budget and luxury) and this was by far the best resort I have ever stayed in. My husband and I picked this place, due to the great trip advisor reviews and stunning traveler photos. Let me just say that the online photos both on trip advisor and on the website do not come close to the beauty of the hotel grounds that you see in person upon arrival. Our stay was from April 16th-23rd. This resort is top notch, 5+ stars in my book and an incredible value! At a cost of only 53 euro a night, we felt like we were staying in a luxury resort of 200+ euro a night. We stayed in one of the suite rooms (suite 14), which was on the ground level, right by the pool. We had a nice terrace that we enjoyed sitting out on and soaking up the beautiful jungle views. Make sure you do bring bug spray though - you are in the jungles of thailand and there are mosquitos.

We organized a transfer from the airport to the resort with the hotel, upon arrival. Right as we walked out of the airport there was our transfer waiting for us. I would totally recommend doing this for 19 euro bc it is a good price and saves you the hassle of trying to barter with a tuk-tuk or taxi after a long international flight. We arrived early evening and were greeted by the lovely receptionist who escorted us over to the beautifully thai decorated outdoor living room. It was also a special touch to be greeted with a fresh flower lei and delicious fresh squeezed orange juice. She showed us around the resort, explained all of the tours we could set up and showed us around the room. We were blown away by such a warm welcome!

Our room was gorgeous! Tastefully decorated in thai style and was very spacious. We had a beautiful king sized bed and the flowers they sprinkled over our bed upon arrival was a lovely touch (and it wasn't even our honeymoon). The bathroom was also beautifully decorated in Thai style and had a big open shower that we very much enjoyed. Also, the a/c was a great escape from the heat of Phuket!

The hotel grounds are meticulously groomed and there are coy fish ponds, flowers and "Thai style" sculptures everywhere. It was very exotic and I felt very far away from reality. The pool area was great! The fountains into the pool and night time lighting made it feel very romantic. This is a very quaint resort and many times it was just my husband and I in the pool...nice romantic touchI also recommend taking advantage of the happy hour and enjoying drinks by the pool....it was the relaxation we needed after a busy day touring or at the beach.

The restaurant was great too. We ate here 4 nights during our stay. We tried the pizza one night and it was delicious! We never tried any of the Italian food, but the Thai food is top notch and the Thai waitresses are very friendly. Try the spring rolls for an appetizer...we got them every night. The breakfast buffet is included in your package as well, which we took advantage of every morning. The fresh fruit and fresh squeezed orange juice is out of this world! It is also open from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. which was nice for the days when we wanted to sleep in.

Sorry to go on and on, but this place was amazing and I would totally recommend it to anyone of all ages. The service was top notch too. Being a quaint resort, they accommodated any of our wishes. They helped us arrange all of our tours and transport (I recommend doing James Bond Island and the Phi Phi Islands tour). In addition, we had a late flight at 9 p.m. and they extended our check out time from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. and then arranged for our luggage to be in a safe place. Any time we had a question or concern, they were there to make our stay absolutely perfect.

The location was great too. It was away from all the craziness of the resorts directly down by the beach. It was quiet, peaceful and very tranquil. Instead of falling asleep to the sounds of cars and motor bikes (as I would suspect the hotels by the beach have a problem with), we fell asleep to the peaceful jungle sounds of crickets, frogs and other random jungle sounds. Don't be concerned about the resort being a 15 min. walk to the beach. The hotel staff will drive you to the beach anytime between 9-1 p.m. and will pick you up at 4 p.m. We took advantage of this the first day, however we enjoyed driving the motor bikes to and from the beach (200 baht a day, or 4 euro a day). The bikes were safe and loads of fun!

I am not going to ramble on anymore, but if you are looking for an amazing, exotic, peaceful holiday, look no further than this resort. My husband and I are looking forward to coming back here again in the future. Many thanks to all the staff for making our stay special!

ps-they give you these fabulous silk robes that we loved wearing around the room :)

We stayed here from the 14th to the 19th of April and had a lovely time. We stayed in a Superior cottage, no 1, and we enjoyed it very much. The design of the rooms is very thai, with lots of small things to admire everywhere you looked (lighting, desk, bed top, pillowes... ). Attention to details and nothing to spoil the lovely perfection of the room.

The view from the cottage and the restaurant is very lush and nice.

The sunset on Kata Beach is postercard perfect.

The food at the restaurant was excellent, and with acceptable price. Comming from Romania, where we have a lot of italian restaurants i can say i have eaten there some of the best pasta's in my life :)

Small things that one should now before going to ( ...i guess) any hotel located in the full tropical forest :) is the noise made all day and night long by crickets and frogs ... a continous concert, but you will get used to it. + sometimes you might be visited in your room by small mosquito eating geiko's (lissards).

Having picked this hotel on reviews posted on trip advisor, we were a little disappointed by our stay.
Several emails with the manager before coming confirmed that we wanted to stay in one of the suites (I actually requested his best one as it was a special occasion). On arrival we were charged for a suite and then taken to a room that wasn't anywhere near as spacious as we'd hoped. However, being typically English, we didn't complain. I am now confident that the 4 rooms next to the pool are suites and in fact we were in a superior room at the top of the hill, which had had the sign removed from outside the door.
The room itself was pretty enough for lowish budget accommodation but the bed was like sleeping on an ironing board, not helped by very low quality pillows. Neither of us had a good nights sleep during our stay. Our room also smelt quite like a urinal when we first arrived, probably due to the fact the roof on the toilet/shower was partially open to the rest of the room. The manager didn't comment on this showing us round the room but when we went out soon after he nipped in and lit a scented candle to hide the smell.
The grounds of the hotel are beautiful and the staff are very helpful. However the other problem, for us, was the other guests at the pool. When we were there, every afternoon when we came back from the beach the small pool was full of men who were 'entertaining' local guests. Now I'm not small minded or ignorant to the appeal of Thailand to single men, but it made both myself and my girlfriend uncomfortable sitting by a pool that on any given afternoon had a variety of different Thai women wrapped around western men.
Maybe we were unlucky at the timing of our stay as this is a pretty hotel however the possible dishonesty over our room, the uncomfortable beds and the clientele means we won't be back.

After the hot, dirty cities of Bangkok and Chiang Mai, coming to the Boomerang in Kata was wonderful. The pool is great and just what we needed! The restaurant is pretty average - the building looks good but the dinner was overpriced and really average. I expected the pasta to be good considering the owner is Italian but it was terrible. However the staff are great and really helpful. We didn't do our research and spent our one day walking the streets in Patong instead of hanging out at Kata beach and regretted that immensely. I do recommend this place for the most part, they do on the whole a great job.

Boomerang Village has justifiably garnered great reviews from its visitors, and I must admit that I was very satisfied with my stay. Several features make the hotel a great value and ideal staging ground for Phuket excursions. First, the hotel is not a sprawling resort but instead infuses every gesture with a personal touch. The staff greeted us individually when we arrived, escorted us from our taxi to our room while shielding us from the rain with an umbrella, and provided us with some general instructions and contact information. Second, the hotel is situated on a hill overlooking Kata Beach. The walk from the hotel to the beach takes about fifteen minutes, but Boomerang Village provides complimentary bikes to guests. The bike trip takes about five minutes. Finally, the somewhat secluded hillside location is close to the nightlife, but distant enough to offer peace and quiet. Boomerang Village is not an all-inclusive resort, but it provides great value, a great view, and a personal touch. The only downside is that the breakfast buffet tends to repeat the same menu. But at least it has some delicious Italian meats thanks to the Italian proprietors!

We stayed here for three nights upon arriving in Phuket. The hotel is beautiful - set up in the hills of Kata, with manicured gardens and a great pool! However it wasn't by the beach, you have to take a shuttle there which is provided free. We actually walked back once, which took AGES! However, after jumping in the pool we were soon relaxed again.
There is a restaurant onsite which is reasonably priced, and you can also book massages in your room! There are motorbikes for hire, only 200b/day which I would recommend, even for a beginners as Paulo helped us learn to use it!
We found a great restaurant close by called Mama Noi's - recommended by the Lonely Planet. This place has "the best" banana shake in Phuket, and was only 25b!!
The staff were very friendly and we really enjoyed our stay here. I would highly recommend it, especially if you are just arriving in Thailand, or want to relax after the craziness of Patong!

We stayed here for the first half of our honeymoon. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous. Great breakfast; lovely pool; beautiful gardens; really helpful staff; great restaurant and excellent cocktails. The staff drop you down to the beach for free any time up to 2pm. you can then either get a tuk tuk home or a lift from the hotel at 4pm. The staff were happy to serve breakfast early for us on the day when we left early for a tour. Thank you to Paolo and everyone else.
