“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2011

For me, the location of hotel is not good. There is limited space to walk around the hotel. The breakfast is also low qualitty. What I like the most is the media box in the room.

Dear Zamijang,

Thank you for your comments.

We are surprised & sorry to note that you did not enjoy your stay with us and take your comments about the breakfast seriously and will work towards it.

With regards to the location, allow me to explain that though the hill may look like a difficult climb we are safe from Tsunami and the view from our rooms is excellent.

We do hope that you will come back to stay with us again.

Warm Regards,

Management

We have stayed in Total 6 times at Avista .Something we do not like to do as so often the second visit never lives up to expectations. However this is not the case with Avista the staff are just so friendly helpful polite the list goes on. Incredible value for money, Breakfast offers plenty of choice and we dined in the restaurant several times each time we were more than happy the thai food is excellent and we love the italian options as well.The rooms are spacious modern with a great patio for lounging, comfy outdoor chairs. Very central location can walk to the beach yes there is a short climb back to the resort but this we enjoyed meant we working off those extra kilos. Pool is large with wonderful garden. Used the gym the equipment is modern and has all that you need.
On this visit we were in Thailand for 8 weeks and Avista was right up there with some other more expensive resorts. Raining and cold here in New zealand so can't wait to return

Room Tip: We have stayed in every room type enjoyed room 500 the most great veiw

We booked in for 2 days and stayed 27 days, that says it all.

The staff is wonderful, service above expectation, they ensure that guest have a wonderful time. the hotel is very clean and located up on a short hill, just far enough away from the madding crowd but close enough to everything. There is a regular free shuttle service to Kata and Patong beach.

The restaurant is good and breakfast is excellent. We advise that you book room with breakfast, more convenient. The pool is most enjoyable and has a lovely ambience, waterfall and all.

If we come back to Phuket, we certainly stay at Avista again.

This hotel is just amazing, everything from the staff, to the rooms and the breakfast is just A+
we stayed in the Avista Club Room , with a beautiful view over Kata Beach
you can rent movies in the lobby for 50 baht and this include 2 sodas and popcorn, the staff will go through fire and water to please its guest.
my girlfriend sprung her ankel and the hotel staff called the hospital to ask about the injury , provided some cooling balm for her and even lended her some crutches. the day after they even called our room just to check up on her. the pool is very nice and the En vogue restaurant at the hotel is proberly one of the best in Kata.
if i had to find something negative about this hotel it is the limited volume of sunbeds at the pool.

The Hotel is located ontop a cliff side and the walking op and down the step hill is a bit hard , we are in the late 20's and had no problem going op and down 1-2 times a day
but more than that could be a challenge, also to note that the Taxi / tuk tuk stand outside the hotel charges 20% more than others in kata.

We have travelled all over Thailand , but all in all Avista is ABSOLUTELY the best place we have ever stayed :)

We take your suggestion about the sun beds by the pool and are already in process of acquiring more sun beds so by the time you visit us next we will have new sun beds bythe pool area.

Me and my wife were there at Phuket to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. I chose Avista based on all the good reviews I read and photos I saw from the web. The hotel is situated on a slope that offers a good view of the sea. Its only less than 5 mins walk to Kata Beach and nearby eateries. It is new (< 3 years old), modern, serene & tranquil. We were received with a warm welcome & were served with a nice cocktail and towels. The staffs were ever so friendly, courteous and helpful. The deluxe room which we stayed comes with a super king bed, beautiful toilet with a shower cubicle big enough for 2. There were also 4 types of pillow to select from to your liking. Everything was very comfortable & clean. The beautiful photos you see on the hotel website are exactly what you will get and experience. The body massage in the Spa within the hotel is v gd (don’t waste yr $ with those by the beach).We had a very pleasant and memorable stay here. Highly recommended, thumbs up !!
