This hotel is literally right on the beach and you can hear the surf crashing. The waves were quite big when we were there and the red flags (do not...

We have stayed in quite a couple of hotels in kata beach and this is one of the nicer hotel that is right smack on the beach where there is generally nothing bad about this place.

AMAZING it's that simple. I stayed here in July 2014 and this place has the wow factor without a doubt, not the cheapest hotel there but our balcony was 15 feet from the beach with the most amazing views so well worth every penny spent. We never ate at the hotel because there are so many restaurants to chooses from...

There's something special about staying at the boathouse, I realised this soon as I made my way down to the pool sat myself on the sunbed and looked out to the ocean and thought I can see myself spending a lot of time in this spot watching the world go by, listening to the waves and the music playing at...

This is a beautiful hotel in an excellent location right on Kata Beach. But what makes it really special is the wonderful hotel staff who provide a really personal and friendly service. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to others.
