The Boathouse Phuket on Kata Beach has reopened
after a 5-month renovation.
All 39 guestrooms and suites at the popular
boutique property have been refurbished.
Designed by the
Singapore-based interior architecture firm, LAANK, the new
nautical theme decor features details such as rope and wood, while
ocean blue and white hues have been incorporated into the design
to capture the freshness of the ocean and enhance its Baan Reua
(meaning "boathouse" in Thai) characters.
In the common areas, along the reception, blue
corrugated wall features create an imagery of water reflection;
the grey colour shades thorough the interiors provide a
"Being small in room number, we can easily cater
to the special needs and requests from our guests. Our hotel is
operating in an intimate level that allows us to pay attention to
details that matter," said, Max Chin, General Manager of The
Boathouse Phuket. "Here, remembering guests by their first names
is an accepted norm, so is taking the initiative that they're well
taken care off."
Facilities at The Boathouse include an infinity
pool, courtyard whirlpool, hospitality lounge, gym, in-room
dining, laundry service, and most important, a team of
well-trained and enthusiastic staff prepared to offer a
tailor-made stay. The hotel was one of the very first in Thailand
to offer guests free chilled water and chilled towels as they lay
by the pool and on the beach.
Established in 1991, The Boathouse Phuket had,
for many years, the best wine cellar in Phuket, and was known more
as a great restaurant with a few rooms, than a great hotel with an
equally good restaurant.
Today, the restaurant remains true to its long
legacy and draws inspiration from the original Boathouse Cookbook.
The Boathouse's unique recipe such as 'Massaman Kae' (lamb in Thai
curry) is a must among the list of specialties.
From the traditional Thai dishes to popular
western selections such as grilled Wagyu steak, stewed fish pie,
grilled tuna steak, guests are invited to pair the tasty menus
with the wines from a selection of more than 600 labels in its
award-winning wine cellar.
The element of authenticity is not only conveyed
through the flavours but also the serving style. During lunch
time, the restaurant serves a set menu as in a Pinto Set style.
Reflecting the local tradition, Pinto or the tiffin carrier is
part of a food culture across the region. Pinto is wildly used as
a lunch box, while a mixed type of food in Pinto are usually
shared among friends or family members during the meal time.
