Taxi Rates from Boat Lagoon
Unique Quality: I so often see people asking about taxi rates that I thought I would include this to give people an idea.
The concierge desk has a range of services like all hotels, but I thought I would include the taxi rates to popular areas from Boat Lagoon. Bear in mind that taxi rates are the most expensive apart from limousines. A private driver can be hired for less. Check my other transportation tip for Phuket.

Directions: Available from concierge desk in the Hotel lobby.
Day Spa and Gym/Pool etc Facilities
Unique Quality: The facilities here include a lovely pool with huge jacuzzi. The pool and gym are open until 9.00pm nightly. There is also a beautician/day spa. All facilities are available for use by those staying anywhere at Boat Lagoon. You sign in when you arrive and get a towel which you must also sign out. There are sunbeds by the pool/jacuzzi.
One piece of advice I would give is to take a pair of thongs/flip flops to wear in the showers as they are not as clean as they should be. The washing basket is even full of mould.
Directions: About 25km from the airport.

The third type of accommodation at Boat Lagoon is the condominiums. These are two bedroom, self-contained apartments which are all located on the canals which makes them very relaxing.
All accommodation types at the Boat Lagoon Marina entitles you to use all the facilities.
Your expenses are rent plus electricity, water and housekeeping (you choose how often).
Bookings for condominiums are made through the hotel or directly with owners. The first time we hired one, we stayed at the hotel until we walked around and found notices on the doors of a few apartments that were available. We were settled in the afternoon of the phone call. The lady that managed our condominium also had some others available. Her name is Hoong and can be contacted on the phone number below. Otherwise book directly with the hotel through their website or email address. We found it was actually cheaper through the hotel last time.
Unique Quality: The facilites here include; pool, gymnasium, day spa, restaurants, bars and bakery.
Directions: Surrounding the canals. On the left hand side of the road through the marina.
The Boat Lagoon Resort consists of three types of accommodation; hotel, apartment or condominium.
The apartments overlook the marina, giving a nice view and feel. They are self-contained and basic, but fairly nice. They are available as one bedroom or two.
All apartments are accessed by stairs, so be aware if stairs are a problem for you. Also, many Korean tourists on package tours stay here and are extremely noisy, often arriving at all hours of the night, so avoid these apartments if you're easily disturbed.
Housekeeping is generally twice per week. Bookings are made through the hotel.
Unique Quality: The Boat Lagoon Resort has many facilities including pools, tennis courts, gym, jacuzzi, sauna, restaurants, supermarket, banks, money exchange, bars and bakery. There is also a shuttle and taxi service.
Directions: Overlooking the marina.
We stayed here for a couple of nights whilst we were finding longer-term accommodation at Boat Lagoon. The room was pretty basic, but nice enough I suppose with views of the gardens and pool area. The rooms are air-conditioned and also have a hairdryer in the bathroom. The bathroom had a bath and shower, although they had a bit of the typical' Asian mould' in them. There is also a safe in the room.
Partying people in the middle of the night were a bit of a disturbance, as were the 7.00am starts by staff wheeling noisy trolleys past the room and the extremely noisy toilets flushing in adjacent rooms.
This hotel attracts busload after busload of tourists. The coaches can be very noisy too and turn up at all hours of the night.
Some of the staff were very friendly, others not too interested in helping.
Unique Quality: Breakfast was complementary with the Garden Suite booking.
The large pool area of the hotel is very attractive.
Airport pick-up/drop-off (on request)
Currency exchange (not good rates though)
Baby sitting services
Directions: About 25 km from the Phuket airport.
Enter the Boat Lagoon Marina and it is on your left, about 150m down.
