As part of the celebrations to mark its 25th Anniversary, Boathouse on Kata Beach, Phuket today announced its rebranding as Boathouse by Montara to reinforce its position as the island’s landmark destination with a focus on creating a contemporary and all encompassing lifestyle experience for guests.

Apart from the unrivalled Boathouse Wine & Grill restaurant with its award-winning wine cellar, which continues to delight connoisseurs of fine dining, the new owner, Montara Hospitality Group, has refreshed and revitalised the 25-year-old resort to become a one-stop upscale destination for discerning guests seeking total indulgence of all senses amidst a unique and vibrant beachfront setting.

“With the rebranding, guests are reassured of not only the continuation of the resort’s international-standard, premium accommodation, superb services and “private” beach area on Kata Beach, but also an encompassing lifestyle experience all under one umbrella.  We like to think that the resort now has a personality of a 25-year-young person so it is vivacious, versatile and exciting,” said Mr. Bill Black, President of Montara Hospitality Group.

To kick start Boathouse’s 25th anniversary celebrations, the Management has flown in the acclaimed New York-based all-female French Jazz trio – La Vie en Rose – to provide guests with both a sight and sound feast at Boathouse Wine & Grill six days a week from now until March 14, 2014.

“Boathouse by Montara is more than just a place to wine and dine, we aim to position it as a lively evening out venue where guests can unwind and enjoy entertainment with friends, business colleagues and family,” said  Marie-Laure Fleury, the resort’s General Manager.  “The new concept is that the music and fun ambiance never stops here!”

Boathouse Wine & Grill, offering over 800 unique labels from 17 New and Old World winemaking countries, has been a recipient of the prestigious Wine Spectator’s Best Awards of Excellence since 2006.  Other recent accolades comprise Thailand Wine List of the Year 2013’s “Best Cellar Selection”; and TripAdvisor’s top five Travelers’ Favourite Fine Dining Restaurants in Thailand.

On the accommodation front, Boathouse by Montara is offering 25th anniversary promotional rates for guests reserving 5 nights or more in any type of suite from now until April 30, 2014 (except during 13 – 27 April,2014).  Starting from THB 13,524 per room per night for a family sea view suite, the promotional rates include lunch for two at the Boathouse Wine & Grill; dinner for two at RE KÁ TA’s gourmet beachfront restaurant; one-hour oil or Thai massage for two; a bottle of wine upon arrival; and round trip airport transfers.

Other facilities and services geared up to join in the festivities comprise RE KÁ TA, the only beach club on Kata Beach, open daily from 7.00 am to midnight (Happy Hours from 5.00 pm – 6.00 pm and 10.00 pm – 11.00 pm).   The Spa boasting a panoramic sea view offers a selection of premium treatments including June Jacobs Facials, Esthederm Sun Treatments, to name just a few. In addition, visitors to Phuket can drop by the Boutique and Café for a delicious cup of Café Richards coffee or ice cream whilst browsing in the Boutique Shop which showcases imported brand apparels from Marie France Van Damme, Pain du Sucre, Princesse Tam Tam and Vilebrequin, amongst others, and Thailand-crafted jewellery by reputable designers.

In-house guests and outside visitors who are Thai food lovers and wish to take home some mouth-watering recipes can also join Boathouse by Montara’s highly popular Thai Cooking School, which offers hands-on lessons three times a week all year round.  In addition, the resort has also teamed up with QuikSilver in providing private surfing lessons during the months of May until September every year, and aspiring surfers can also purchase QuikSilver surf wear and boards at the resort’s Surf Shop.

Last but not least, Boathouse by Montara offers an ideal, private beachfront venue for picture-perfect weddings and other fully personalized banquet functions.
