Boathouse Wine & Grill - Phuket

Kata Beach Restaurants & Dining

Boathouse is a tastefully appointed beachside boutique hotel with one of the most celebrated restaurants and wine cellars in Thailand. Located at Kata Beach, its five-star restaurant serves gourmet French and Asian cuisine in sumptuous settings with top-of-the-range service.

Boathouse has been renovated and given a completely new look. Still retaining its nautical theme, the colour scheme of its award-winning restaurant is now predominantly white.

Décor

Spacious and graceful, the restaurant is accessed either through a tastefully appointed hallway on the street side or from the beach itself. As mentioned, the theme is white with a large bar area complete with bar stools and sofas at one end, to the side an open kitchen with a centrally located stairway heading up to the roof terrace.

There’s also a spacious fan-cooled indoors dining area as well as an al-fresco outdoors section with reach-out-and-touch beachside and sea views.

 

Atmosphere

Decidedly classy. Phuket does not have a restaurant where dressing up is mandatory but you’d be doing yourself a disservice if you didn’t wear something special when dining here.

The soft surf in the background, together with a tinkling piano playing evergreens conjures up sensations of near opulence and add to that an exotic cocktail or a glass of good wine and you’re as near to Bacchanalian Nirvana as you can get.

Food & Wine

Boathouse has won the Wine Spectator Best Award of Excellence every year since 2006, and that takes some doing. The 800-label cellar has around 6,500 bottles featuring classical, organic, and New World wines and serves 32 wines by the glass.

We sample an incredibly light, yet robust Heart of Stone, Marlborough sauvignon blanc with a home-smoked Tasmanian salmon, Belgium endive salad and dill and the resultant pairing is admirable, as is a duck liver medallion with apple and pear compote accompanied by a sweet Malaga MR Mountain, Telmo Rodriguez.

To say the dining here is classically accomplished would be an understatement yet hyperbole would not suit Boathouse: it is, put simply, a wonderful experience. A superbly presented pan-fried snow fish fillet on a bed of vegetables with extra virgin olive oil is matched with a classic Chablis 1er cru Vosgros from Burgundy and is melt-in-your mouth delicious.

The beauty of dining at Boathouse is that, for foreign visitors with favourable currency rates, it is affordable luxury.

If there’s service better than Boathouse in Phuket I’d like to know where. Discreet, observant and intelligent, the wait staff members are dedicated to their profession and it shows.
