Boathouse, Phuket: Beloved Budget Mainstay

Unbeatable style-for-dollar and a killer Kata Beach locale is yours for the taking at the iconic Boathouse.

Before the big guns descended at pace and hiked up the price tags (and yes, the dazzling perks too), there was the original Boathouse, a pretty Kata Beach icon opened in 1989 and famed for its cosy ambience, friendly service and prime shorefront posi. But alas, the years took their toll, and in 2012 the beloved boutique stay underwent its own fairly extensive nip/tuck. Luckily, the revamped resort’s storied charm remains, along with its unbeatable style-for-dollar reputation and, of course, those magical sunset vistas.

Today, the Boathouse’s 37 rooms and suites sport easy-breezy white, blue and wicker accents, natural wood floors, complimentary WiFi and private balconies. There’s also the central pool and tropical RE KÁ TA spa for the all-important post-beach rub, plus slick Eur-Asian eats at Boathouse Bar & Grill, and the white-umbrella, Café del Mar-channelling beach club. Boathouse, you’ve still got it babe.
