Wine Spectator Awards Boathouse Wine and Grill and RE KÁ TA

Both Boathouse Wine and Grill and the recently-opened RE KÁ TA Beach Club have been awarded with one of the world's most prestigious oenophilic accolades - the Wine Spectator's 2012 Best of Award of Excellence.

Boathouse and RE KÁ TA are in fact the only two restaurants in Phuket that have been honored with the prestigious Best of Award of Excellence.

Distinguished with prestigious Wine Spectator Awards from 1995 onwards, this is the seventh year in a row that Boathouse boutique resort and its iconic Wine and Grill Restaurant have been honored with the Best of Award of Excellence accolade. It is a continuing endorsement and recognition of the excellence of one of Thailand's most sophisticated and extensive cellars which offers more than 800 wines and maintains a stock of almost 8,000 bottles.

The award for sister property RE KÁ TA Beach Club located next door to Boathouse overlooking beautiful Kata Beach Phuket is particularly gratifying. Having launched as recently as December 2011, to be recognized and awarded so early in the Beach Club's evolution is indeed a great honor.

Since 1981, Wine Spectator has honored the world's best wine lists, with its Awards and to be included once again for Boathouse and for the first time for RE KÁ TA in its selection is a great testament to the expertise of our Wine Director Georges Giret and the team of sommeliers he has trained over the years and also to all the staff and management who are so dedicated to cellaring and serving the very finest wines for our guests.

Both Boathouse and RE KÁ TA passed a rigorous inspection that evaluated the overall quality of their wine programs, cellars, service, ambiance and cuisine and the full details of the restaurants can be found in WineSpectator.com's http://www.winespectator.com/webfeature/show/id/47026 along with the wine selection, cuisine, prices and key staff in each establishment.
