Well situated on beachfront, friendly and competent staff, good food/cocktails and service at Boathouse restaurant. Walking distance to Kata hot yoga centre, various Thai spa's, local and international bars & restaurants and shops. Only 20-25min to Phatong by Tuk-Tuk or taxi. Will recommend to friends and family.

We arrived tired and stressed after a 6 week tour looking to relax and unwind. We had 5 nights in a delux room overlooking the beach. Can't praise the quality of the staff highly enough. The location, restaurant, room was excellent we barely ventured from the hotel, no reason to as we were more than happy to laze on the...

We came with a big party and stayed for four days. I cannot say enough about the service and the property. Very beautiful and well maintained with first class service at every station. Management is excellent. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable, but about what you would expect for the price. Breakfast is very good and served at the...

We stayed for 3 nights at Boathouse. Honestly i was a little disappointed when we entered Boathouse during our check-in and were provided with a room which was facing the restaurant. However when I called the staff they immediately took in our request and shifted us to another room albeit a day later. The property is right on the beach...

This resort is nothing short of magnificent. And when I say that it ticked all our boxes of what we were looking for and more. Not only was the location superb, literally on the shores of a beautiful beach, but everything else was special. Our room was a deluxe beachfront and it had all the mod coms plus great comfort...

My husband and I have just spent 10 days at the Boathouse and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is fantastic - right on the beach, so we were able to easily go back and forth from pool to beach during the day. The rooms are kept spotless by friendly and obliging staff. The elderly pool cleaner would make a...

We booked late however we're extremely happy to find the boathouse. Usually we like boutique style hotels and this suited perfectly, beachfront location at the end of the beach. Wonderful small pool by the beach which was great if you don't like to get sandy. Pool area looks v cool at night and a nice place to have a cocktail...

We have been to the Boathouse 4-5 times having tried other hotels in Phuket and Koh Samui and keep on coming back. We love the position right on the beach which is very unusual in Thailand. The rooms are lovely and spotlessly clean and the staff in the Hotel could not be more friendly or helpful. The restaurant is quite...

A small fancy Hotel very nicely located directly at the beach (not many hotels are directly located at the beach in this area!), restaurant is great but also a bit pricy (however worth to pay). All rooms quiet and facing the beach not the busy road behind the hotel. Staff very friendly, helpful and professional. Even though the Hotel does...
