"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
"Fantastic hotel and great value for money"
Graet hotel , excellent staff who are all very helpful, nice food ( the breakfast is amazing ) and cool pool to hang out around.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is superb and I recomend to book it with breakfast as it is not included. The staff are very helpful and very humble.Genuine 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 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
"Avista Spa & hotel Kata- we will stay there again"
The hotel on a whole is extremely good, great pools and facilities, free wifi internet, the rooms are really nice. the only things that we weren't that happy on were; that although the bed sheets were changed every two days they still had small stains on them near everytime. they should get new ones once the stains aren't removed by washing. the other […] this that annoyed us was the bar and restaurant prices- all the prices in the menu are a little higher then in town (which you would expect since its a hotel) but what makes is worse is they then put a 10% service charge and 7% tax on top of these prices. as a result we only went to the restaurant one evening because food in town was better and cheaper. But please don't take this as a reason not to go, it was a lovely hotel and the staff will do anything for you. this are only little things and eating out every night is what we wanted to do, we would definatly stay there again. we strongly recommend eating at Po's, it is a little place just at the bottom of the hill from hotel. Is does amazeing thai food, the best pancakes I have ever eaten and has low prices. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The rooms were amazing. Modern decor, superb bathroom. Had a control panel by the bed which controlled every light in the room; the aircon, an alarm clock and a Make Up My Room / Do Not Disturb button. Hotel facilities were good. The restaurant was very reasonably priced. The staff were really friendly. I didn't like the view from the balcony so they […] gave me a different room straight away and even moved all our stuff for us. Only a 5 minute walk to the beach.

"Avista (Phuket) - Slope is indeed steep"
Avista (Phuket) is generally a decent hotel with clean and nice rooms. The only and major complain that i have is with the steep slope that leads to the hotel which you needs to walk up and down to get around the amenities and Kata beach. Travelling with 2 young kids with having to carry one to walk up the slope is not easy task. This hotel is suitable […] either for those who prefers to stay within the hotel for the pool and amenities or those who has strong built that can withstand climbing up the slope Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Avista Hotel in Kata"
We were disappointed when we first arrived as the room we were given had a view of a brick wall. We were told there were no other rooms available. When we complained however we were given another room. To their credit it was no problem however was confused as to why we were originally told there wasn't another available. We were happy enough with the […] location although there is a steep hill to climb if you go for a wander down to the shops/restaurants. Not a problem for us but possibly others might find it inconvenient. It's between Karon and Kata which was a pretty good location. Kata is probably better for families though. The rooms were fabulous and we would certainly stay again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The best hotel ever!"
We stayed in this hotel only 3 days after our vacation in Phi Phi islands-so we didn't really want to visit many places in Phuket since it is sooooo touristic but relax and explore only the surroundings. It is the first time I say that I would visit a place only because of the hotel! We stayed in Avista, and we could walk to Kata beach (5 min). The […] hotel is a bit up hills but It is NOT THAT steep if you are <45 years old!! They also provide a free shuttle that can get you to some beaches (twice per day i think) - we never needed that because IT IS NOT THAT STEEP and Kata beach is less that 5 min walking! . The rooms were big and AMAZING!So clean, so modern, with a great bathroom and free wireless! The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pools were great, for a short dip after the beach, with a great bar inside the pool! There was also a small game room with billiards and ping pong (table tennis), which is a great solution when it rains! The breakfast and the restaurant were also amazing! The breakfast is one of the best buffets I have ever had-do not miss it! And the restaurant : the environment amazing, the food simply great, and the prices totally reasonable! 1600 bht for 2 for a full menu (first +main course+wine+ dessert). Even though we do not like to have dinner in the same place we have breakfast, we went there twice!I shouldn't forget the spa! We had Thai massage for 600 bht per hour. The room of the spa was great, the massage totally professional! Phuket was the least interesting / beautiful place I visited during the vacation in Phi Phi islands and Krabi, but this hotel made my last 3 days of vacation amazing and relaxing! It is the first time I do not find anything bad in a hotel, and actually love everything about it! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Avista Hotel - Great service and location"
The hotel had great service and staff. Everyone was very helpful and courteous. My wife and I lost some very expensive UV protection that we brought from the States (which they do not sell here in Asia). The staff was able to locate and return these to us the next day! The hotel restaurant also ran some pretty affordable specials for lunch and dinner. […] I highly recommend this hotel Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Avista should be five star, great service , the restaurant has best food in the area complimented by very helpful and happy staff . Very clean and modern. Beautiful spa at Avista , well worth the money . Fantastic location to shops and restaurants in Kata beach and a short stroll to the beach. Don't be put off by the hill as it's a good way to walk […] off all the extra kilos - they also have a shuttle serviace available just in case. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful hotel and great service"
My expectations of the hotel was fairly average from reading some of the reviews, but my girlfriend and myself totally love the hotel. Very welcoming and hospitable as we walked in. Our room was beautiful although we were in the backside of the building so we didn't have a view. There was a huge pool with pool bar which we took advantage of during happy […] hour. There is a massive hill up to the hotel which may be inconvenient for some people. Location is good around Karon/Kata, but it will be 300-400 baht if you want to get to Patong. Nothing for me to complain about, totally love it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"さすがアビスタ ✩ だが…"
彼女と3泊プールビューの部屋に宿泊しました。評価どうり建物は綺麗で部屋の設備、プール、フィットネス、スパ申し分ありません ✩ 特に食事はそれほど高くなく非常に美味しかったです ✩ ただ、パトンのアビスタと比べると部屋は小さく、また蚊が多いので部屋を締め切り。それが理由かエアコンの付け始めなど少しカビ臭い。。ここは気になりました。あとはホテル前の急な坂がお年寄りにはハードでしょう。もう一点、中国、韓国系の客が多くマナーが悪いので。。嫌な気分にさせられる。。ホテル側もブッキングやプロモーションをする国をもう少し選んで欲しい。わりと高めのホテルですし、デザインされた近代的なリゾートで、全体的には悪くありませんが、格安でない限り2度目はちょっと考えます。Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Très bon souvenir, service impeccable et piscines magnifiques, Les chambres sont très belles et le petit déjeuner est un remarquable. Le seul reproche que l'ont puisse faire est qu'il faut marcher 5 minutes pour atteindre la plage et le retour est un peu raide mais c'est largement surmontable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
