We spent 10 days. Had a wonderful time but wished we were in a beach front hotel like katathani. Hired a car (drive with care ). Breakfast was just ok ... the bacon was inedible but bread and eggs were OK. Room very comfortable and clean. Service was brilliant. Overall a great time. Better for families. Pina colada was good...

My wife and I have recently stayed at the Avista and had a wonderful time. Staff were very helpful and curteous and were able to assist us with any enquiry we may have had. The rooms are a little dated but still comfortable and clean. Not much of a view from the 5th floor balcony but no big deal. Location... More

I booked the Avista club room which was fantastic but the price was too steep, 3 nights costs me more than SGD521 in 2009! Hotel was uphill thus not advisable for those with old folks. Hotel was new when I visited back in Dec 2009, therefore facilities were new and fresh. Lobby and swimming pool was also lovely to be... More

We had a great stay at the Avista. All the staff we so wonderful. We stayed in a one bedroom suite. What a lovely large room with a bath in the bedroom area and a huge bathroom. The location is close to Kata township with shops, beach and restaurants nearby. It is a bit of a steep walk up the... More

Booked directly with the hotel at a special offer price advertised on Tripadvisor - stayed in a Club Room on 4th floor at the front of the hotel ( tip - if you want a gorgeous view of the whole Kata Bay, choose rooms 402-404 ). The room was fantastic, very modern, very clean with every facility you would expect... More

I stayed at 4 different hotels/resorts on my holiday to Thailand. And every one after Avista Kata was even more expensive than the next. However, I found that this one was by far the best and cheapest. The rooms were perfect for a couple, romantic enough, not over the top. The views were simple and beautiful. Everyone who stayed at...

I visited Avista in Sept 14. It has taken me a while to write a review, however, it is very deserving of one. This hotel is the best hotel I have ever stayed in (and I visit about 6 countries every year). The mountaintop location is absolutely stunning, the views a breathtaking!!!! We stayed in room 908- although not the... More
