The Hotel is good. Great room. Water in room are free. The staffs are very polite with the Tayland' smile. The beach is ok. Very far from Patong. But we rent a car. The staffs at the breakfast area are from other planet! Very polite, very kind and smile all the time. We felt as king. There is a restaurant...

The location is fantastic right on the beach with shops and restaurants on the doorstep. The service is outstanding. The staff are superb! The sea is warm. The hotel is expensive, but not exclusive, as day visitors are allowed into the small pool area (The Beach Club) and their entrance fee is recoverable against food and drink. Several times there...

I spent 4 nights here with my adult daughter. The rooms were large and clean. The staff is very friendly. The views are beautiful, however, the beach is small and there is quite a bit of debris in the water. It washes up on the beach so that each morning as we walked to breakfast there was a large amount...

After much research we booked the Boathouse for our honeymoon, and could not have picked a better place! The resort was fantastic. Fast and simple check in process, great room with everything we needed (with little touches like mosquito repellent and balm), access to a semi-private terrace with lounges and couches, fresh fruit daily, and super friendly staff. Simply walk...

I you're looking for a charming boutique hotel, RIGHT ON THE BEACH, look no further. The view from the Beachfront suite is stunning. Brakfast is great and so is dinner. The only thing lacking as far as I'm concerned is a viable swimming pool for lap swimming. If you don't wanna be on a cliff overlooking the beach, and like...

Stayed at Boat House from 23rd of April to 1st of May 2015. The hotel is located at the south end of Kata Beach in a nice quiet location. The hotel property is right at the beach with direct access.

Hotel is good however the beach right in front of the hotel is very dirty! When we asked management why they don't clean the beach they said that the beach is public and its not their job. Definitely the wrong attitude when the beach is the sole reason guests are staying at this hotel. Its really a pitty to see...
