"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

"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 is a great hotel. Very friendly staff and good location away from the noisier parts of Kata/Karon beach. Breakfast is top notch! After staying in Avista, we spent 6 nights in a very expensive five star hotel and I would say that Avista's breakfast is better. The only down side is that the free shuttle bus (to Kata beach and Patong beach) only […] runs two times a day, which is not enough. 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

The hotel had great service and staff. Everyone was very helpful and courteous.

Beautiful spa at Avista , well worth the money . Fantastic location to shops and restaurants in Kata beach and a short stroll to the beach.

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

"Avista Phuket Res & Spa -A hotel not to be missed"
We were there at Phuket to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary. I chose Avista based on all the good reviews I read and photos I saw from the web. The hotel is situated on a slope that offers a good view of the sea. It's only less than 5 mins walk to Kata Beach and nearby eateries. It is new (< 3 years old), modern, serene & tranquil. We were received […] with a warm welcome & were served with a nice fruit punch and towels. The staffs were ever so friendly, courteous and helpful. The deluxe room which we stayed comes with a super king bed, beautiful toilet with a shower cubicle big enough for 2. There were also 4 types of pillow to select from to your liking. Everything was very comfortable & clean. The beautiful photos you see on the hotel website are exactly what you will get and experience. The body massage in the Spa within the hotel is also v gd (don’t waste yr $ with those by the beach or roadside).We had a very pleasant and memorable stay here. Highly recommended, thumbs up !!

"Don't eat in the hotel"
Overpriced, Thai food which was good, but the pizza has to be the worst I've ever seen and it was three times more xpensive than the Thai meals. There are better hotels in Phuket.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
If you're considering spending your vacation at Avista Hotel, we can only recommend it! Great service, friendly and helpful staff, great room excellent pools with a bar (accessible from the water!), free gym and free shuttle service to the beach and "crazy" Pa Tong Beach. They also have a spa, but the massage parlors in Kata (town) are much cheaper […] than the hotel's spa. You will need about 5 min. walking to town (food, bars, etc.) and about 15 min to Kata Beach and Karon beach. To the beautiful Nai Harn beach it will take you about 30 min. by car, but if you're not going to rent a one, make sure to get a metered taxi at the airport (after you leave the building, turn right and walk 30m, they are the yellow-blue ones) and ask the driver for his phone number to call him whenever you need a ride (cheaper and safer than the red "tuk tuks"). Have fun at the Avista Hotel! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

My fiancée and I stayed here for 3 nights in mid March, and we were very pleased with the hotel. The room was large and very clean. The location is good, about a 7 minute walk from the beach and only 3 minutes from the center of Kata beach nightlife, restaurants and shopping. This is not a beachfront resort, and is at the top of a steep hill, so walking […] back the the room after a large meal can be somewhat tiring. The staff was friendly, the pool is excellent (including the in-pool bar) and the hotel restaurant has a good selection of Thai and Western food, and a large champagne brunch on weekends.

11개월배기 아가랑 같이했던 여행이었어요. 직원들은 영어를 유창하게 잘하는 직원은 없었지만 별 불편함없었고 친절하고 웃는 모습이 좋았습니다. 풀 안에서 즐길수 있는 bar도 좋았고 레스토랑의 타이 메뉴도 먹을만 했어요. 북적거리는 리조트와달리 조용함 때문인지 다른 투숙객과 친해질 기회도 많아서 2커플의 호주 가족들과 풀에서 친해지기도했고요. 단점이라면 주변 이동이 아주 조그 불편하다는 점과 아침뷔페 메뉴가 그냥저냥 평범했다는 정도? 여튼 좋은 인상받고 편히 지내다 왔어요.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

카론~카타 비치 중간의 언덕에 위치해있어, 접근성이 좋지는 않지만... 시설도 깨끗하고, 서비스도 훌륭하다. 무엇보다 조식이 훌륭하다. (개인적으로는, 클럽메드나 메리어트보다 만족스러웠다.) 다만, 대형 리조트들보다 수영장은 작다. 아이를 동반한 가족 단위 여행에는 다소 부족한 느낌일지도. 하지만 커플/친구 여행객들이 숙박을 목적으로 한다면 (가성비) 최고의 선택이라고 평가하고 싶다. 한가지, 미리 부탁한 것도 아닌데, 빈 방이 있는 경우 알아서 룸업그레이드를 해줬다. >_ <)bGenuine Hotels.com guest review
