This is a nice hotel, on a great location, ideal for those who do not like huge resorts but still like their confort and quality of service. A couple concerns though, especially if you enjoy your sunbathing by the pool.. On the "Bravo Side": 1/ Clean and nicely decorated rooms, we had a Family Suite which is perfect for 2... More

Dear Patinec, Thank you very much for taking your time comments on our TripAvisor. We are much appreciated and my apologies for receiving a poor service at the pool area. Since the government banned the sun lounger on the beach, our pool area became very busy and high demand, especially during our peak period. We agreed that our pool is... More

We have stayed at Boathouse in the last 10 years. We chose Boathouse because the hotel was directly on the beach, and had their own private sun loungers with privacy and good service from the beach staff who worked there. Unfortunately this year, this privilege was removed and we were forced to stay by the pool, if we wanted our... More

We have just returned from the Boat House where we had a lovely time, perfect weather and fabulous food. The hotel itself is wonderful and we were delighted to be upgraded to a beach front room on our arrival. It didn't actually look onto the beach but was very handy for access to the beach and pool area. Pros Spotlessly... More

Absolutely loved our holiday at the Boathouse. The rooms were really neat and comfortable and the included breakfasts were amazing. We loved the location as it was the best on the beach, in that you could just walk down a handful of steps from your room onto the sand. The beach club that was included next door was so beautiful...

The Boathouse is in an exceptional location on Kata beach. From the resort you walk straight onto the stunning beach, and all the cafés, restaurants and shopping in Kata are a stroll away. Even though it's central it is a quiet resort, we had no problem with noise at all and slept well. I think all rooms would have nice... More

To begin with, the hotel arranged, upon my request, a pick up from the airport, where its representative immediately met us. Generally, efficiency, hospitality and friendliness are the words for the briefest description of the hotel management and staff. Before unpacking, we went for lunch to the restaurant in the pool area. It turned out to be rather expensive in... More
