Reviewed March 30, 2014

We really loved our holiday on Avista hotel. The rooms, food and service from the kindly staff made our staying so relaxing and comfortable. In same place we got the opportunity to taste genuine Thai food, hear music and se dance. We also had an once in a lifetime romantic dinner on the hotel rooftop that was wery beutiful and memorable. We really recommend this hotel.

We stayed at Avista Kata Beach for the second time in March 2014 for around 2 weeks, which was not long enough as we were really sad to leave. We also had around 90 guests stay there with us as part of our wedding party. Everyone in our wedding party were highly impressed by the quality of this resort. Their staff are the best we have come across anywhere, always smiling, friendly and going above and beyond to accommodate any request. They pride themselves on quality service, ensuring that our stay was as comfortable, seamless, and enjoyable as possible.

The rooms are spacious, clean and modern. The bed is comfortable and the bathroom is lovely. Our deluxe room on the 4th floor overlooked the pool and also had an ocean view which was spectacular. Breakfast was included within the price of the room and did not disappoint. There are many options to suit all tastes and they also have a very friendly and smiling egg chef that cooks eggs to order. He even remembered our usual orders after day two! The restaurant doubles up for lunch and dinner dining and the food is excellent. Upstairs they also have a new traditional Thai restaurant which is wonderful.

The pools are beautiful and the pool bar is awesome. We especially enjoyed this every afternoon during happy hour and beyond. Jom and the other bar staff are always happy to make any cocktail or drink request.

We would especially like to thank Ms. Jutharat Sonkaew who systematically organised our 96 guests accommodation without any hiccups. She, along with all the other beautiful staff, made our guests feel really special. We were personally blown away by the special wedding treatment that was created for us during our two week stay. We will always remember this with a special place in our hearts.

We cannot recommend this resort highly enough. The location is perfect, 5 minute walk to the beach and really close to the shops, restaurants, massage places and nightlife of Kata.

The resort is perched on a hill, which allows it the beautiful views, however the hill is not a problem at all, just a little bit of incidental exercise.

We will definitely be back, hopefully sooner rather than later!!

Room Tip: Room 421 was awesome :)

I stayed here in February 2014 and had a very nice time. I really have nothing to complain about. The staff was very friendly and the room, the pool and the food at breakfast was also very good. If I go back to Phuket I will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: I stayed in one of the Avista club rooms, located on floor 5.

This time we just stayed 2 night, but this is the hotel we really want to stay again. People are very nice, the welcome flower was fragrant, and the facility are humanistic. The hill was not a problem, we regarded it as kink of hiking. We will sure be there next time.

Room Tip: For those families with little kids, the king- bed room is enough.

We stayed here in December 2013. The room was as described, large spacious bed, nice bathroom and shower and a balcony. We didn't use the pool as we prefer the beach but it seemed nice. We ate breakfast at the restaurant on site a few times for ease and it was relatively good value with a good selection. The hotel was up a bit of a hill but it isn't excessive and should be find if you do not have any mobility problems. The hotel is slightly on the edge of Phuket town but is close to the beach, around a 5 minute maximum walk. Overall we had a lovely stay and would recommend Avista.

Made to feel really welcome, people said the hill to the hotel was a problem, we found it good exercise after lovely Thai food. The main good ponts about the hotel are the lovely pool, two levels, quiet area if required, main area ideal for little ones. Secondly, we like the beach for a change some days, it is fantastic each area has a small bar and you tend to go to the same area each visit, they always recognise you and look after your every need. I tried to think of some bad points, the only bad point I can think of is that you have to leave at the end of your holiday. Thank you very much for making us welcome and making our holiday special. Finally, nearly forgot , breakfast is 1st class, coffee is constantly offered. Once again thank you !!!

Stayed for a week as a couple in early October. The weather was awful, that's why it's called the rainy season. Should have done more research, but we just wanted a beach break during some travelling around Asia. Got a very good deal through TravelRepublic.

The hotel was great though, very quiet, nice big pools with a swim up bar and jacuzzi. Breakfast was amazing, loads of choice, hot, cold, British, continental, all sorts. Rooms were big, with big balconies, separate bath and shower, wifi, fridge, TV with several English channels

The beach is nearby, 5-10 minutes down a steep hill. It's very nice too, and if you walk along it you find more of the town. Loads of restaurants around, with pretty cheap food and drinks. (One had an elephant outside one night, which is amazing if a little sad).

Try and organise transport back to the airport before you arrive in the resort, as there's some sort of local monopoly system that bumps the price up. We went to a tour guide's place and they agreed to a cheaper trip back if we didnt tell anyone.

Did a couple of trips, booked before we left home. James Bond Island is way better than The Beach, particularly in iffy weather.
