The Boathouse on Kata Beach, Phuket
Thailand, West Coast and Islands

Info : The Boathouse on Kata Beach

Extensively renovated in 2011 to breathe a new lease of life into an historic Phuket establishment, The Boathouse on Kata Beach is now one of the island’s most unique hotels and one that will appeal to a broad range of travellers.

 Situated at the southern tip of Kata beach, the Boathouse is the only truly seafront hotel in the area – it's private stretch of beach offers a far more laid back experience than resorts at the northern end of the bay.

With only 38 rooms, all of which face the sea, the Boathouse can accurately be described as a boutique hotel. Tastefully decorated with all modern amenities and private terraces or balconies, the rooms here offer peaceful and sophisticated surroundings within reach of plenty of activity.

For a small hotel the Boathouse has a serious range of specialist food and drink possibilities. The Boathouse Wine and Grill serves a range of Thai and French cuisine whilst the Island Bar & Sunset Lounge offers cocktails and light bites. The Beach Club is a more relaxed affair offering a range of food and drinks at the water’s edge. Finally the Boathouse wine cellar boasts a range of over 800 wines from around the world. The main restaurant remains an island institution attracting foodies from across the island.

The Boathouse has two small swimming pools which are great for lounging around and dipping in and out of. Most guests choose the sea though, with the waters in front of the hotel generally calm year-round. Kata beach is one of Phuket’s best – a long, sweeping bay. The beach is quite heavily developed without being over-the-top, meaning there are lots of places to eat and drink within a short stroll of the hotel.

The Boathouse will appeal to couples and families alike or to anyone looking for a boutique hotel with a laid back atmosphere, excellent dining options and plenty of entertainment on the doorstep. If you are looking for total seclusion then this is not the place, but for a nice balance between tranquillity and lively surroundings the Boathouse certainly fits the bill.


Deluxe - This is our first really 'upmarket' category. It might be a beautiful tiny hotel with very limited facilities or a 5* resort hotel with all the trimmings; but any hotel in this category will be a well-run establishment with very comfortable rooms, a strong service ethos and excellent food.

We arrived back in the UK at 7.00 this morning and I couldn’t wait to thank you for organising such a fabulous holiday for us! Everything went so smoothly and we were really impressed with the quality and style of the hotels you chose for us, the convenient locations, and the local services - absolutely First Class! We had some wonderful food, did some great activities and we particularly enjoyed the Elephant Day which was something we shall remember for the rest of our lives. Also we really enjoyed the trip to the River Kwai and the amazing River Kwai Resotel.
