“I thoroughly recommend Boomerang Village cottages for serene atmosphere, beautiful setting & ultra friendly service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2009

HI,
I thoroughly recommend Boomerang Village cottages for their serene atmosphere, beautiful setting and ultra friendly service by the management team. My wife & I stayed 6nights having never been to Phuket before. We were fortunate as it’s proximity to Kata beach (15min walk or 5min scooter ride), a first-rate beach for swimming and excellent surfing (in this fringe monsoon period). Airport pickup and return was so convenient, as was their assistance in organising quality day-trips, recommending restaurants, scooter hire (they have their own) and shopping. The local shops are quieter than Karon, however Kata area was a refuge from madness of Patong – while still being interesting.
The cottages are very comfortable with picturesque views out to the ocean, and receive the welcome cooler breezes, as Boomerang is nestled on the lower part of coastal hills, on fringe of a rain-forest. Unlike many places it has the feel of being apart… while being accessible to shops/beach/restaurants etc. The pool is exquisitely placed, with views over Kata, and there are so many interesting and inviting spots within 30mins of the hotel, that we filled 6days with great memories and fondness for the friendly staff. It is a perfect location for those who seek quality and peace in reasonably priced accommodation, and we will return here, as a base to explore the beautiful southern hills, villages and beaches of Phuket. Regards, Bruce & Prashant Munro

This was our first trip to Thailand and Boomerang was the first hotel we stayed in. As we arrived well after midnight due to some delays, we were pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome from Paolo and the ease with which we were guided to our room. As everyone else has emntoined here, the room was more than what we expected. We has Suite 16 overlooking the hills and sea in the distance.

The services we received the coming days were simply superb! Nothing is too much trouble and a very late checkout (at 16:00) was no problem either. Delicious breakfast served in the open air restaurant area really gives you a tropical feeling. And their lunches and dinners are just equally yummy.

For those who is looking for a beach vacation, Boomerang might just be a bit far from the beach, but a walking distance of only 15 minute didn't stop us from visiting the beautiful Kata beach.

Really looking forward to return soon!

I reside in Thailand for 6 months of the year and travel extensively.
This is truly a beautifully appointed resort. We had a spacious room overlooking the sea in distance.
Lovely furnishings ( although my Thai wife was a little disturbed that the room contained a life like statue of Buddha overlooking the bed .Definitely a no no in Thailand and a little insensitive to Thai culture.) Nevertheless the owners of this resort, who are Italian, manage the place extremely well and provide tasteful facilities that you will not find in other resorts. Romantic restaurant with good food at reasonable prices. A little far from the town centre but quiet and peaceful and outstanding value.
We stayed here 3 nights and will definitely return on our next trip to Phuket.

This is the hotel i would strongly recommend if you are looking for a hotel near Kata or Karon beach, Phuket. Though the hotel is top the hill, you can rent the motorbike (about Baht 150 per day) from the hotel to reach the beautiful Kata beach.
My boyfriend has no idea what hotel had i booked before flying to Phuket. The moment we stepped out from taxi, he instantly told me i have certainly made the right decision. The services from the staffs were great, the pool is beautiful, the room is very comfortable and spacious. Their restaurant is great too, and you won't get bored with their menu as there are plenty to choose from. The ambience of the restaurant is good and quiet at night, so i would also recommend couple for romantic dinner in their restaurant too. :)

I spent 3 nights in this hotel with my wife and we had a very good time there. From the moment you get to the hotel, you get kind of a personalized attention starting with a warm welcome by Paolo, the supervisor of the hotel.
All the services you need (taxis, activities, car or scooter rental) are available from the reception of the hotel who can arrange everything for you and they charge you the correct price.
You can get massages arranged in your room.
Compared to the other hotels in Phuket, this hotel has an excellent location because it is not far from the beach and located in a quiet place because it is at the top of a hill where you have a nice view of the whole bay.
The comfort of the room is ok, you don't have a big bathroom with all the comfort (bathtub, jacuzzi and other) but you get enough if you don't plan to spend the whole day in you room.
The weird thing is that although the hotel was quiet busy when we stayed there, we did not feel it at all, we met other guests a couple of time only.
So if you are looking for a great value for your money in your choice of hotel, looking for a quiet place in Phuket (i.e. not across the street from the bars or shops) and plan to do a lot of activities during your stay, Boomerang village is the perfect choice for you !

We stayed here for 9 days, following a stay 7 nights get 2 free deal we found. The resort is really beautiful and we enjoyed the staff. The staff was so nice and helpful- we felt like we had new friends at the end of our stay!

The downside was that the pool was broken during half of our stay, which was kind of drag, but they made up for it with a great discount. They worked day and night to get the pool fixed. Very dedicated staff.

Another problem is that they don't have a computer. They have free wi-fi, but this was the only place we stayed that didn't have a computer for guests. Even the low budget places we stayed provided that. It seems they could add this feature at little additional cost to the resort.

The resort is located up a steep hill, but it didn't stop us from walking all around town. The resort provides a daily shuttle to and from Kata Beach, which is very nice. We found that it wasn't far to walk from the resort to the town though, if you like a little exercise.

The restaurant is great. The breakfast has a lot to offer, which was nice. THere are lots of little local places to eat at the bottom of the hill that I would recommend. Great dishes cost about $1.

Once the pool was working we loved that! It is a very cool pool!!!! And happy hour is fun there. The pool overlooks the town and the beach. We loved our stay at Boomerang and would definitely stay again.

While we heard the town of Kata wasn't supposed to be like Patong, it still had its fair share of tourist annoyances and western men cruising for Thai women. The Boomerang was an oasis from that scene though, mostly families and couples, which gave it a nice vibe.

There is a really cool local market in Kata on Thursday- mostly locals and local prices.

We absolutely loved Boomerang, but probably would not visit Phuket a second time around.

My friend and I stayed here for 3 days in the middle of June and we really liked the place. Nice setting, well decorated cottages and nice ambience all round. I am also coming back to Phuket at Christmas with my parents and we are staying at Boomerang for 3 nights, but unfortunately, they don't have any further availability so we have to stay elsewhere. However, Paolo has been extremely helpful in pointing us to high quality locations in the area and was always very responsive on email to any questions that I had. As a previous review has stated, we checked-in and were told that the pool was out of action due to a leak and without hesitation, we were offered a 50% discount on our stay. That set the standard as far as service levels were concerned. Whenever we needed to get out in the evening and go for dinner/drinks, Paolo was always on hand to offer a lift and even when we wanted to pay more than was required in terms of fare, it was not taken. During the transfer he was always on hand to offer advice/tips on places to go/see/eat. One plus point is that breakfast is served till 1pm (I only made it once as we had a few too many heavy nights) and the spread is good.

As far as location is concerned, Kata beach is walkable (we did it every day) although Paolo does offer a shuttle service to the hotel with a pick up from the beach until 4pm (nice touch!) If I was with older travellers/family/young children, I would probably take this up as there is a steep hill leading up to Boomerang.

Overall --- well priced digs, extremely personable and helpful staff and pretty good location to what is probably the nicest beach in Phuket. A bit of a no-brainer in terms of recommending it to others....

Looking forward to going back in December.

Enjoy!

Thank you for your visit to Boomerang village Cottages and for your review. You and her friends are really nice.
The swimminpool now is ok, in July will add more fountains and we will construct a small terrace near the pool, in the evening guests can eat and enjoy panorama of Kata.
