“Excellent hotel in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

We had 10 nights at the Avista and found this quite new hotel to be very comfortable. Our large room with a stunning view through the treetops to the beach 150 metres away. The room had a lounge section, a balcony, large bathroom with a bath, flat screen TV. The cleaning was meticulous every day with fluffy towels, bottled water, tea and coffee. The staff were very helpful to try and answer any question or request. The breakfast was great with tropical fruits, breads, pastries, salads, meats hot and cold, and any egg dish made by the chef at request. We ate dinner a few times in the restaurant and the meals were excellent and varied but catered to most tastes as the guests were from all corners of the globe. Internet access was free in the foyer or the library. (The library had 6 English titles and many books in other languages - we left them 3 of ours) Lovely pools and a games room gave plenty of space for relaxation. Hotel shuttle goes to Kata beach and Patong twice a day. A car is not really necessary.

Great value of money with a great ambiance and staff.. welcoming and friendly helpful staff.. we stayed there for 5 days of our honeymoon and couldn't fault the nice stay out there with a good options at the breakfast to the welcoming drink.. the pool was just great and the location was not that close to the main Patong of Phuket but yet a clean and silent great beach of kata was a better choice than the noise..the rooms were clean and modern furnished with a great service

Ok if you are fit, the drive is steep but only 200 meters long, every thing else was very good. All the staff were friendly, breakfast good rooms clean loved Kata beach.Beach cleaner than Patong this resort is a good place to sit back and forget about the world.There is a hotel bus which goes to the beach twice a day.

The hill is hard to climb ;) quiet place and we had a unforgetable stay. Swimmingpool and the bar and sunbeds was nice. The gym is a little small but all in all functional. We thought that the spa was too expencive. And the food in restaurant too.

Away from the hustle and bustle, the Avista was relaxing and the service was impecable.
From the moment we arrived, we knew we were going to have a great time. Everyone was friendly and obliging. The food was great and the facilities was clean and well presented.
I would certainly recommend the thai massage at the spa.
I would stay here again and recommend to anyone else who is looking to visit Phuket
