My husband and I stayed at the Boathouse for eight nights in November 2016, and we greatly enjoyed our stay overall. The hotel is perfectly located on Kata Beach - the beach is absolutely stunning and it's perfect for swimming and water sports. There are a few restaurants located directly outside the hotel, and it's about a 5 minute walk... More

After dining here a year ago we couldn't wait to come back and stay. But we were let down from the moment we arrived. We were majorly disappointed with everything. The food which was previously 5 star is now what I would consider average. The wine list is out of stock of most wines we wanted. The service was poor,... More

Cannot speak highly enough about this hotel or our stay. The room was beautiful, the staff were fantastic and the food was incredible. We had a lovely dinner in the restaurant and sampled some of the wine from the extensive cellar. It was our honeymoon and they looked after us beautifully - including the rose petal decoration on the bed!... More

The Boathouse was exactly what i wanted (needed).. A classic, quirky, timeless place that was right on the best beach. Not too big that you felt like another number, much more a personal relaxing experience than going to some big resort...

Lovely friendly staff, very helpful. Though the property is on a very busy part of the street even though it is bang on the beach. Beach was a bit crowded. Hotel was very nice. Pool was great. Nice food. Very nice staff. Nice room, though the photos made the rooms look a bit bigger than they really are. Even though... More
