We stayed here twice in our July trip to Thailand - a week at the beginning and three days at the end before flying home. We had left our last few nights open prior to traveling, but booked them at the Avista before we left the first week, as we enjoyed being there so much.
We don't have enough good things to say; we won't hesitate to stay here again. It looks exactly like the photos on the website, unlike many other hotels. It's only 7 months old, so hopefully they keep it well maintained in the future!
Where to start - the location was perfect; quiet and set away from Patong, yet close enough via free shuttle to go if you really need to. Service was great, there is plenty of staff who are attentive, friendly and very quick. Anything we needed or that needed attention was taken care of or rectified very quickly. The grounds are hilly, but the buggies they offer really aren't necessary as it's not THAT big. The gym is good, the breakfast and restaurant is great. They offer a free shuttle to Paradise Beach, which is one of our favourite spots in Phuket.
We stayed in a Club room and also a Buena Vista room and both were great. The hotel is modern, a bit spartan, and they are still adding touches like greenery around the place. We loved the pools on the couple of days we chose to stay at the hotel. There's great attention to detail with things like insect repellant and scales in bathrooms (if you really want to find out how much weight you're putting on on your holiday!). Mosquitoes are an issue, but they are working to reduce them around the property. They even sent a cake and champagne to our room when we came back the second time (for a belated birthday celebration).
We loved this place; we've been around Phuket quite a bit and we'll never stay any place else after staying here. We did stay in low season, and understand that the prices go up significantly in high season!
