"Nice Hotel close to beach"
We enjoyed our stay at the Avista Resort and Spa, hotel staff were pleasant and accommodating. Breakfast was lovely and I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
I was with my wife and 2 kids. Overall stay was comfortable. Not much activity for children below 6 years old except the small wading pool. The staff are polite and helpful. Food in the restaurant is average but good buffet spread for breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
This Hotel was absolutely amazing. The staff were warm and welcoming and the Hotel itself was 5 Star. Couldn't of asked for a better stay. Will definitely be coming back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Avista's staff are vert friendly, polite and helpful. Upon arrival, they will come to you for check-in instead of you having to go to them. Something upsetting was that there was some power failure that kept occuring during the first day of the stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very comfortable stay"
Very comfortable stay overall. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We booked two deluxe rooms but they ended up upgrading us to the grand deluxe with a queen bed and king bed. This suited us nicely as we have quite a large group of people. We also had to ask for additional room cleaning throughout the day, as we made quite a mess coming […] back from the beach/pool midday. The hill was a bit steep outside the hotel but the hotel is very close to both Karon and Kata beach. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The check in was great, we set in the lobby when the staff did check in for us. The room was nice and comfortable. The only thing was they didn't change our towels for the second, and we only told they when we checked out, as we only stayed for two days. They acted immediately, they gave us $500 Thai baht back,apologised for it, and offered a room for […] us to have shower after we have been to the beach. Overall, it was a nice time in this hotel.

"Great hotel close to beach"
We spent 11 nights at Avista Phuket Resort and Spa, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is close to the beach, shops and restaurants. The staff are very helpful, and always smiling. The rooms are large, comfortable and very clean. Would definitely stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Extended stay as the hotel & location is excellent"
This hotel exceeded our expectations, even after being recommended, so much so that we extended our stay. Our previous excellent report could not be enhanced any more and would recommend this hotel for the best relaxing stay, away from the hustle and bustle of Patong, the shopping and night life hub. The hotels facilities and surrounds are just what […] is needed. The free hotel shuttle service to Patong and the cheap, but slow, public bus to Phuket town is excellent value compared to the overpriced taxi/tuktuk service. Highly recommended and will return in the future. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel was recommended and met every expectation"
Although this hotel is 7km from Patong and slightly more from Phuket, it's location is perfect, without the crowds and multitudes of small shops offering the same items. The hotel exceeds the overall rating, with the most friendly staff ever experienced, to the point of remembering our names and our tea/coffee preference at breakfast and offering an […] excellent selection. Rooms on the 4th floor have an excellent view to the coastline. Free transportation to Patong, the main shopping hub, is available, but you must pre book. Situated on top of a small hill, the short walk up can be testing, but what the hotel offers, is well worth the effort. The hotel impressed us so much we extended our stay and will return in the future Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely Hotel very friendly"
Lovely Hotel . staff very friendly and remembered what we liked to drink /eat. breakfast excellent so much choice and some foods cooked to order.Near beach - up a steep hill so bear in mind if you have any mobility issues.Genuine Expedia guest review
Lovely hotel with comfy beds and cool lighting! Large bathroom with lots of complimentary items. Loads of towels including beach/sun bed towels. Brilliant air con. Felt very welcome as soon as we arrived, cold drink and towel while they checked you in. Great restaurant as well as the Thai restaurant on the roof which was very authentic. down side could […] be the steep hill but it's short and steep and burns a few calories off! Wifi was very inconsistent and requently logged you out. Maybe a few trees trimmed to allow sun beds to remain in the sun a bit more. Brill happy hour at pool bar!

"Superb Service. Great Hotel. Awesome Staff."
I cannot find fault at this hotel. The rooms are very clean & spacious. The view at the balcony facing the beach/ocean is breathtaking. The bathroom/toilet have more than enough room to move around. The staff, whether they're regular employees or trainees, are beyond being awesome. They are sincere in helping out and would go an extra for every guests. […] Would definitely go back to Phuket and this hotel will easily be on the top of my list. Phuket for perfect get-away, Avista Hotel for perfect accommodation.

"Lovely welcoming hotel"
We have just returned from our first visit to Thailand, will definitely be returning. Lovely welcome when we arrived at the hotel, all the staff were very friendly and helpful, nothing seemed too much trouble. Our room was lovely and spacious, very comfy beds, very well equipped and stocked. Air conditioning was very effective. The pool areas were set […] out really well with plenty of loungers in beautiful surroundings. The restaurant offered a varied menu, breakfast was buffet style with many choices, again the staff were very attentive and efficient. Would definitely want to return to this hotel, probably in low season again as I'm sure in high season would prove very popular and therefore much busier. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Everyone that works here is amazing, they are all so polite and in a fantastic mood. They're also extremely helpful and very accommodating. I loved this hotel! The room itself is beautiful and very well kept. The breakfast that's included was compared to the rest of the hotels that I stayed in on the island. It is close to the beach but to be honest […] I wasn't very impressed with any beach on Phuket. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Beautiful resort at Kata beach"
Wonderful hotel, fantastic staff, great location...Genuine Expedia guest review
"Altavista Phuket - a good option"
Located close to the beach in a high street (not reachable for tsunami, in case you value that). Everything (rooms, service, bathroom) was very good, except for the breakfast which is "fair". Indeed a good option to stay in Phuket.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Peaceful and relaxing"
We are a family of four and have just returned from a 14 night stay at Avista Phuket resort and spa at Kata Beach. We had a wonderful holiday and enjoyed our stay at Avista. The Hotel is on a steep hill, but there are plenty of tuk tuks available if you don't fancy the walk up/down the hill. Lots of nice restaurants nearby and easy to get to karon or […] patong by taxi. Would definitely recommend Avista as a great hotel for both families and couples. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel with friendly staff."
Myself and my wife stayed at the avista for our honeymoon. From the very start we were made welcome. The staff went out of their way everyday to make sure our stay was to our satisfaction. The room was clean and modern and the hotel itself was kept up to a high standard of cleanliness. The hotel is situated on a hill. The avista provides a free shuttle […] service to the beaches.

the hotel never fail to deliver good service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Overall great place to stay"
We came for a holiday with extended family to celebrate a birthday. Overall the staff were fantastic , nicest I have experienced at any resort and happy to help and accommodate you. The location of the resort in Kata was great. Smaller town than Patong and while you still had numerous restaurants, shops etc to choose from wasn't as crazy as Patong can […] get and close to the beach. The only negatives for us were the beds were very hard, but in saying that others in our group didn't mind them. The resort is on a steep hill with a short walk up and we knew this before we booked, however my elderly father was definetly over walking up it after 1o days , so that's something to keep in mind if travelling with older or infirm people. We definetly stay there again and recommend it to others Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location from Kata Beach and big room"
Very pleased with my stay at Avista. Staff was very friendly and helpful at all times. Was upgraded to a room with a queen and king bed. Very huge room, impressive and loved the location which was a 5min walk frm Kata beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"2nd stay at Avista."
This was our second stay at Avista. We enjoyed it so much the first time that we decided that we couldn't stay anywhere else but there when we returned to Thailand. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. The room itself has all the usual mod cons with some added extra ones. The staff go out of their way to help you and are all very friendly. The […] food is excellent, there are many great choices for breakfast, look out for the ever smiling 'egg man'! The hotel is situated in a great quiet part of the town with all the shops, restaurants and beach itself just moments away. I have to say that I don't think another hotel will ever live up to this one! Can't wait to go back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I booked this hotel because i liked the proximity to the beach. My family was happily surprised by the hotel's wonderful hospitality. The hotel is located up a hill but is a quick walk to the beach and to the local shops. I would definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent hotel for superb value!"

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!

"Very quiet hotel"
Great facilities,the staff were very professional ,especially Stef at the reception ,the hotel could use more free shuttle service,because of the very sharp slope outside the hotel .But overall a very good experience.Very nice big room,beds were very comfy,a lovely pool and good food at the restaurant.will be back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"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.

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
The hotel is located between Karon & Kata beach and is also close to shops & restaurants. This was the first time we stayed at a local hotel (non big hotel chains) & we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is small but the room is spacious so we think it is good value for money. The room is ok clean and relatively updated. The staffs were polite but […] not overly friendly. The breakfast was good with variety of food. The biggest complaints would be the Internet service & taxi mafia. Wifi was not available most of the time & it felt like winning a lottery whenever connection was available. When we requested taxi service to airport, the charge was double the amount we paid to get to the hotel from airport. However, we had no choice as there was no meter taxi that can go to the hotel as the service was controlled by a mob located outside the hotel. On the way to airport, the driver tried to get to buy souvenir & also tried to get extra money. It wasn't a good feeling at all. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
