“Nice Getaway, great view”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

We stayed in a room with a nice view over Surin Beach. Overall the service was good the rooms were well laid out and convenient. The buggy service from the reception to the room was useful, as was the service to take you to the beach. The access to Catch and BiMi beach clubs also a bonus in staying here.

On the downside, the air-conditioning needed some fixing in the bedroom. However this was done promptly.

Breakfast was ok. A wide choice, but it's buffet, and therefore the food is not that fresh or hot, if like me, you roll in at 9:30am.

Restaurant food was very good, and a meal by the pool is recommended, but I would avoid the room service as it seemed to take some time to deliver, and was not hot. This was probably due to the distance to the kitchen.

Overall, very good, romantic, beautiful setting and gardens, and we would be tempted to stay here again.

Room Tip: ask the hotel for the option of pick up from airport

Beautiful & peaceful. Staff were very kind & always made us feel welcome.
The rooms are nice maybe a little dated. View was incredible.


Surin itself was nice but not shopping & limited dining options.

We were in Phukhet for 8 days and decided to end it off by treating ourselves to two nights at this hoteld. Everything was perfect. From the friendly staff to the gorgeously decorated rooms, the lovely view, the amazing fluffy bath towels, the yummy breakfast and the modern qym. Do yourself a favour and have dinner at the hotel restuarant, Sawasdee. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to go back. If you are considering staying here, stop thinking and make your booking!

Stayed for 5 days in one of the Super Deluxe suites with great view on the Bang Tao bay from the terrace. Very clean and comfortable, spacious room and very bright. Enjoyed the outside shower! there is a buggy service available anytime you need to pick you up and drive you back up to your suite and also to drive you to Surin Beach during the day (5min walk).
Nice breakfast: continental + thai cuisine available. You can also order from the a la carte menu (yummy omelettes, scrambled eggs,..)
the pool area is very pleasant and quiet. Enjoyed the seafood BBQ the restaurant of the hotel organised around the pool during our stay (might be once a week).
The gym is well equipped.
Staff is very friendly and will help you getting anywhere you need on the island.
Good location: Surin beach is beautiful and lively. You can enjoy free sunbed and towel at Bimi/Catch beach club during the day as resident of the hotel.
30min from airport and Patong.
Was my second time in Ayara Hilltops Surin Beach and I would definitely go back again.

Wonderful hotel in Surin Beach Thailand. I went with my sisters and enjoyed a 2 bedroom suite with separate everything (bathroom, showers, access to balcony). The hotel sits on a hill with spectacular views of Surin Beach. Breakfast was the highlight as the hotel changed the ethnic options daily, so you didn't get "bored" with the same choices. We all loved the location, overlooking the pool on the 2nd level.

The picture are "spot on", the room, common areas, pool and views are all accurate. I enjoy exercise in the morning and since the hotel is on a hill, i would run up and down the 167 steps to the lobby, stopping midway to do squats, push ups and hand stands. So much fun to be outside getting in shape.

Don't be afraid of the steps, the staff is more than willing to drive you to your hotel room front door.

Surin Beach is a nice quiet place and the staff will drive you to the beach or it is a 15 minute walk. The hotel has an agreement with a facilty that provides chairs and towel (free of charge). Small beach with easy access to restroom, food, massages and drinks.

Couldn't have been happier with the value of this hotel. We found a taxi driver that took us all over the island and was very dependable, suggest you do the same as Surin Beach is a bit isolated.

Enjoy this lovely hote.

Room Tip: All rooms appear to be spectacular, can't go wrong.

I have been once with a friend for the Thai buffet and once alone for à la carte dinner at Ayara Hilltops. Both times the service and the food quality were amazing. I have tried many restaurants in Phuket but this is a hidden pearl. The setting of the restaurant is amazing and romantic. The staff is very attentive to every detail and always smiles. A special thanks to all the waiters and the management trainee Lodovica for the perfect service and very pleasant dining experience. I will definitely come back with friends.

We were here about one year ago and we won't never forget this hotel. Rooms were massive and we had two different bathtub in our room. Hotel was very clean and stuff were so kind and helpful. Pool area is nice and you can get tasty drinks there. Hotels own puffet was awsome!! Sushi, tempura, fresh fish, sashimi and the cheffs made lobsters etc.

It was easy to go to the beach, because it was only one phone call to reception and car came to pick you.

I can highly reccomend this wonderfull hotel to everyone!
