"Excellent hotel for superb value!"
Had an amazing stay at Avista. The rooms are spacious, the toilets are well-maintained and the bed is super comfortable. The facilities are also great - with a beautiful pool and a pingpong table! The buffet breakfast has a wide and yummy selection!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great staff, good rooms, close to beach. Can not fault this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
Good hotel only a couple of small issues we organised an airport transfer with the hotel which never showed And we were also celebrating our honeymoon which went unrecognized.Genuine Expedia guest review
Amazing. An incredible hotel with truly amazing staff. If you are considering going to this hotel, you will not regret it. If you are in Phuket to chill and not party, this will tick all your boxes.Genuine Expedia guest review
Kata Spa and resort had excellent service and the staff were friendly and resourceful. The rooms were clean and tidy and the were well keep. There were many things to do there you could go to the game room and play pool or darts ect. or you could go get a relaxing massage. They had excellent food on the menu and you could chose from a range of Western […] or Thai foods and Bevarages. The experience was wonderful and I had a great time there!

"Nice hotel close to beach and main street."
Great relaxing time in friendly hotel.Staff were friendly and very responsive.Good balcony with clean room.Free wifi is fantastic.Genuine Expedia guest review
Really impressed. stayed with my fiance for 10 days and we were both really happy with service, breakfast and pretty much anything the hotel had to offer. We also spoke to a few people from the hotel and they commented on a few other hotels they have stayed at in the area but said Avista was the best by a mile. We really recommend this hotel to anyone, […] better than the rest and really lived up to the ratings. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful resort and amazing service"
The hotel is pretty new, with modern decor. The service of the staff and management was simply amazing. When we mentioned that we were celebrating our anniversary, they moved us from a ground floor room to an upper-floored room. We stayed with our kids in a grand deluxe room and it was really spacious, with a king and a queen bed. The only thing I would […] point out to management is that glass bottles should not be used for shower gel and shampoo. We broke one by accident in the shower and they were going to charge us for it during check out, but then were kind enough to retract it. Overall,a very good experience.

"highly recommended hotel on Kata Beach"
Perfect room environment and location !! highly recommended !!Genuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel in a very convenient location in Kata beach. Everything about this hotel was great, down to events they had on nightly basis. They were very friendly organizing tours and the spa place in the facilities is amazing.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Room is new but hotel location not convenience"
Room is new but hotel location not convenience, there is no public bus to or from airport and downtown, usually taxi don't go this hotel, and taxi is very expensive because it controled by local people.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was kept very clean, the staff were really friendly. the only down side is that it was at the top of a very steep hill which you need to climb every time that you go to the beach or to the high st. a scooter was a good investment for this. The pool was clean and althought the hotel was full it never seemed busy. the thing i really liked was […] they also had a sun terrace for those sun worshipers becaus the pool could be a little shaded at various times of the day. i would consider going back there again.

"Good experience but 'pathetic' taxi thugs"
Good hotel, mostly courteous staff n very helpful manager (except hotel van drivers- extremely rude), good location near market n beach. However the taxi thugs right outside the hotel are a nightmare. You just cannot hire a taxi/van/tuk tuk except from them! If you do, they turn abusive n vulgar n threaten/ rough up the drivers of other companies. Even […] the hotel staff is scared of them n perhaps even working for them discreetly! Won't go back to Avista just bcos of this, ever! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel, top location"
We had a slight problem at check in and spoke to the front office manager the following morning. I was extremely impressed as she went above and beyond ensuring the remainder of our stay was perfect.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great for couples or families"
Myself and my partner found this a fantastic place to base ourselves during our stay on Phuket Island. Very relaxing atmosphere and easy walk to beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
Close to the beaches. Service was fantastic from the staff. Would come again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for families."
Lovely room interiors however our balcony looked onto a wall with no direct daylight. Whilst this may have been reflected in the hotel.com special price, it would have helped managed my expectations a little. Overall, the location was close to shops, restaurants and the lovely Kata beach. Can be great value for families but maybe not best for very young […] children.

"It is a pleasant stay."
A great place to stay. The room is large and comfortable. The staff is very nice. The taxi outside hotel is too expensive. But you can find others down the hill.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A must stay."
This hotel would have to be one of the best that I have ever stayed in. Only criticism I can make is that the wireless Internet wasn't very good. Other than that everything else was fantastic.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great place WIFI in room I had was bad, especially on the Balcony which annoyed me but the rest of the stay was fantasticGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel, Super Relaxing Stay!"
It was a lovely hotel to stay in. The rooms were great and well equipped and everything looked exactly like the pictures. The hotel staff were always more then happy to help with anything we needed. We had some problems with noises from the room above which was keeping us up. The next morning they happily moved us to a top floor grande deluxe ocean […] view room. The breakfast buffet was great, lots of variety although the lunch and dinner menu was average. Eating out is a lot cheaper and obviously you have more variety as there are a lot of places to eat close by. The area seemed great for families with younger kids, not to much hustle & bustle at night but it was well located for everything you need. The hotel was well located with only a short trip to most places. The hill everyone mentions was a bit of an inconvenience on a hot day after a long day out but would only really be a problem for people with less mobility. Overall it was a great hotel and I would definitely recommend it to friends and family as a great place to stay for a nice relaxing time with close access for the fun stuff.

"Good hotel. Problem with transport to other places"
Nice and clean, good pool. You'll get lost in the bed, it's so big. The evening buffet was great for the price but is only put on twice a week. Our only problem was the transport to other places. Taxis cost $13-$15 to Patong which isn't far. We stayed there for 11 nights. Breakfast is good with a large buffet. The hotel has a 14 seater shuttle bus which […] runs twice a day to Patong but which we found fully booked on some occasions. There is no public transport from Kata beach to Patong so be prepared to spend a fair bit of money on if you have to go to Patong like we did. We ended up hiring a scooter for $7/day which is great if you're prepared to take the risk. Petrol sold on the side of the road in bottles will cost about $2/ltr. Found riding around quite easy with no road raging like you get in Australia. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
overall very nice and Good...but lot of mosquitosGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very happy with all aspects of hotel. Beautiful roomy standard rooms - clean, modern. Breakfast was varied and vast. Service was friendly and polite. Would rate this very cloooooose to 5 star resort.Genuine Expedia guest review
"What a Stay!!"
Fantastic room, would reccomend for both couples and families. Staff were very friendly, they allowed us to have a late check out for around AUD40, we got to stay in the room until 7PM as we had a really late flight. The room had a do not disturb button along with make my room button which I thought was great. Overall a great stay and would reccomend […] to anyone. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Pick me pick me!"
The hotel was exactly as was pictured. It wasnt too big with hundreds of rooms and huge grounds to wander - it was more intimate. The Avista Club room was lovely and spacious, the pools comforatable, the upkeep great. The staff very friendly however not all speak enough english and can cause some barriers at time. The breakfasts great but over all menu […] in restaurant just average. The only negative is this is one is the hill. The hotel is at the top of hill and on hot days, weary from shopping is rather a turn off. Would not recommend if have mobility issues - need to take tuk tuk and that can get expensive. Thumbs Up!

"Great hotel great price"
We had a wonderful stay here, room was clean spacious and comfortable. The staff were so so nice and friendly. Only downside was there is a hill to climb to get to hotel. Taxi, Tuk Tuk or scooter, which was fantastic experience for two 59 year olds! Great hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel, will stay again"
Taxi and tuk tuk out the front is the only downside, charge more than normal, but still cheaper transport in comparison to Australia. Buffet breakfast is fantastic, rooms are exactly like the photos and very comfortable! Staff are wonderful. Highly recommend this hotel. The hill is only 200m and steep, but good exercise! Tsunami evacuation point Also […] if you are concerned. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Avista - excellent"
From the minuite we arrived at the hotel all the staff were extremely helpful and attentive l excellent service. Location is good only a few minutes to beach and town. We were celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary and the hotel left a cake, bottle of champers and flowers on the bed - a lovely surprise. Would definetly go back to Avista.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great family hotel"
Great family hotel at Kata beach. Good service. Good kids club. Nice pool and wonderful breakfast. Free Wifi. Close to beach. Plenty of restaurants down at the main streets. Challenging climb up a steep hill. Nearby taxi are not cheap.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quiet Phuket location"
Great accommodation close to family friendly beachGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My family loved every minute of our stay at Avista. We are already planning to come back next year, as long as the price stays competitive ?? Maybe the Hotel shuttle bus could run a little more often, as the cab fares start to build up after a while, but overall it is a Fantastic Hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Refreshed at Avista"
The hotel is located at the top of a fairly steep hill and that may be a problem for the less fit! It is used by a lot of families and therefore at certain times there are a lot of children onsite. Positives about the Avista, great staff faultless actually, nice pools, excellent breakfasts, very comfortable room, pleasant view of the sea. Negatives […] are all minor things, an empty restaurant in the evening, we felt they needed to try and get some ambiance or modify the menu to attract people to eat an evening meal onsite. The library had limited English titles, the games room equipment was suffering from young children not being supervised. Thats a parental thing but some of the equipment was left unfit for use on a couple of the days. The biggest gripe would be the taxi service to the airport, going rate in town 750-800Baht, 1200 Baht from the taxis outside the hotel. When we asked town taxis to pick us up they said they could not pick up from Avista. As it was impractical to drag bags down the steep hill you just pay, in the overall scheme of things its not the end of the world but the principal of it is not good. Sometimes not easy to get a computer due to children having access to all computers and playing games. I suggested they keep the two in the library child free as this would keep them more accessible for bookings, work etc, (grown up stuff)! To sum up would I go again; if going to Kata yes, would I recommend it to friends yes, did we have a great time definitely. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good value for money"
Good value for money especially if you can get promotion deals.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and superb hotel"
This hotel works hard to make your stay enjoyable and the grand deluxe room facilities were exceptional. We had a garden view room which worked out really well as the balcony was quiet and relaxing. We didn't find the hill a problem and loved the nearby beach. The location was also great for nearby eating and shopping and there were plenty of good quality […] restaurants. The only small drawback was that the hotel restaurant couldn't seat us for breakfast one morning and we had to wait 10 minutes for a table to become available. However, the breakfast choice was the best of all the 4-star hotels we stayed in during our trip and the staff were excellent at keeping the tables cleared and the food replenished. The gym was air conditioned with free water and plenty of towels, but the range of equipment was limited so stay away at popular times. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Will Definately Return"
A modern clean hotel with good facilities. Our room was lovely and clean at the back of the hotel which suited us as it was nice and quiet. The kids enjoyed the pools. choice of 3. The breakfast was fantastic, lots of choice and beautiful food. The staff were very helpfu and friendly. The hotel was at the top of hill and was nice and quiet away from […] the main shops of Kata Beach, only a short walk down the hill and round the corner to the beach, 10 minutes to the main restaurant area. We caught a free shuttle to Patong one day. The only improvement could be a more regular shuttle service to and from the beach particularly if you had small children. We checked out a few other hotels while we were there but I think we will definately stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not just another Guest"
You are made to feel welcome right from the start and not just another guest. My Mother was taken to hospital and the hotel supplied flowers and fruit while she was in there. They were very friendly and informative. I give them an 11 out of 10. They could not improve. We wished we did not move to other hotels in Thailand and just stay there.Genuine Expedia guest review
"bad location away from activities and uphill"
the hotel located uphill which annoying to go up and down to buy something or to eat and its in quit area and far from activitiesGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Hotel and Good Location"
The property is well maintained. The service and food at hotel was very good. We booked Club room which is huge and has great glass wash room. The only issue I found is traveling up the hill which is quite steep. But overall nice resort.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Lovely hotel, we enjoyed our stay family with 2 young boys. Only issue was service was a little too slow, its good to slow down on holiday but things were a little too slow in the restaurant. Excellent location for beach and up on a hill for added Tsunami protection. Really nice staff in general which made a great stay, also bigger than the Peach hotel […] next door so a better option. Kids club was ok for our group, even had PS3 for the slightly older ones. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
