“Amazing Hotel - Best by far!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

Stayed at Avista Kata Resort & Spa for 8 nights in the lovely Swimming Pool view room. From when you enter the hotel you are greeted with such friendly and welcoming staff. My check in was so quick that in minutes I was taken to my room where it was decorated and presented so well in soft lighting and floral decorations across the bedding.

The view was spectacular as the sun was facing my balcony from early morning to mid afternoon.

This hotel has two swimming pools, one which has a pool bar with swimming pool jacuzzi beds to relax in

You cannot beat the location of the hotel. A short ride in their conplementry minibus made it so simple and convenient to use.

Food and drinks at the hotel were very reasonable too and with a wide variety of cuisines to choose from. Especially happy with the buffet breakfast which has a large spread of types of food from all around the world.

Best of all are the staff and managmdht team they all really took care of everything from house keeping, arranging your tours and of course always smiling and curtious whenever you walked by.

Highly recomenned this hotel!

We loved this hotel. It's clean and for a four year old hotel, it looks very new.
Our pool facing room is big and clean, and we love the free wifi, the welcome fruits and the built in adapters (there were three!) in the room.
The breakfast spread was generous and the staff friendly.
The hotel is located just a stone's throw away from Kata town but it is away from the noise as it is located up a hill. Quite a walk up there but it is good exercise.
They also have a shuttle service to Patong town.
Overall, great little place.

We stayed here for 4 nights of our 3 week honeymoon. This hotel is beautiful but it's the staff that really make the entire experience. The rooms are lovely and the beds very comfortable. You also get to choose which pillows you want. We had 'happy honeymoon' written on our bed with towels & petals and a chocolate cake also. The breakfasts were superb, lots of choice, always fresh & very clean. I particularly liked the 'egg' chef who was very busy but also laughing & smiling, he never forgot who ordered what or where you were in the queue (shame some of the guests didn't !)
People have commented on the hill. It is steep but it won't kill you, the hotel provide shuttle buses to all beaches including Patong. We didn't use the service as kata beach is about 4 mins walk from the hotel.
Pools are lovely too, nice sunbeds scattered around.
Fantastic hotel, thank you for a lovely holiday

We had a great week here. While the walk up the hill at the end of a hot day is not for everybody, it is manageable. It is a great spot with views over the ocean from the upper floors, and very close to the beach and shopping. The staff are all very friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. When we needed assistance with a locked safe they sent up a cake to apologise for any inconvenience caused, which was a nice touch, and totally unexpected. I would be happy to recommend the Avista to everyone.

Room Tip: The rooms on the 3rd floor and above overlooking the pool and ocean are great

Writing this as my hubby and I prepare for our last night at the Avista resort Kata. Wanted to write a review as we have stayed for 7 nights and thoroughly enjoyed every day of our stay! We decided on this resort for our wedding anniversary and it was a great choice. From the beautiful lobby and reception area, we were greeted by their super friendly and attentive staff. Easy check in process, all room amenities and resort facilities explained.
The room was gorgeous, level 5 club room overlooking the sea. Pool and happy hour was great, breakfast was amazing, very happy with all options and there was lots of variety to keep us satisfied over the week. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff, they were fantastic. Definitely approach them for anything, they will always try to assist!
Great option if you're wanting to get away from the craziness of Patong and stay in a more secluded spot closer to beautiful Kata beach.
Mark and the team at reception were very helpful and so friendly, thank you to all the staff at Avista who made our stay so enjoyable!

Great little hotel! Nice rooms & pools to relax in and the breakfasts are good. Staff are excellent and help with anything you need. It's very close to the beach and the hill is small so not a problem.
