Average stay.
Overall is not a very pleasant stay. The room is not as per what we booked online, we booked a king size superior with garden and pool view yet we got a twin sharing room type with no view at all. All the complimentary are not replenish after they did the housekeep till we called to request. The bedsheet is not clean and waited for 20 mins in the room till I walked down to lobby to request it personally. It took them around 30 mins to come to change the bedsheet for us. They have to improve their room cleanliness. The table, floor and toilet are not well-clean. The location is good. It is near to kata beach and the kata eat and shopping area.

Steep hill location can use some improvements.
Hotel sits on a hill with steep slope. Not recommended for elderly, asthmatics, or those with strollers unless you want to take a taxi everywhere. Hotel only has one elevator so it is inconvenient for this also . Staff are friendly and helpful and breakfast buffet was plentiful with lots of choices . Hotel could use more amenities though, perhaps a jacuzzi or steam room ? There is a game room, but it is very stuffy , moldy smell .

Steep hill to the Novotel!
Was happy with the service at the Avista Novotel. The staff were lovely and helpful. I was surprised to return to my room on my Birthday to find rose petals and orchids sprinkled on the bed! Not only that but a Birthday 🍰 in the fridge!! A lovely touch! We were disappointed that the Shuttle was no longer available as it was when we booked! This meant a very steep walk down and up Laem Sai road to get into Kata town! We did complain. There were many apologies and it was sad that the staff had to deal with this complaint. The Shuttle service was available in the morning to take the Chinese tourists down the hill to meet their tour bus!!!!!!! This involved 3 Novotel vans. Reminds me of an old saying”what’s good for the goose is good enough for the gander”!!!!! Anyway if you are booking remember to add 400 baht per day for a tuk tuk/taxi to take you up and down or take some comfy shoes!!!!!

Great staff, but areas for improvement
This is our second trip to Avista (the first in 2012); but little has changed since then (which is part of the problem). The hotel is of a good standard, but things are starting to look tired (including the pool area, games room, and bedrooms). There is no major problem, and a bit of maintenance and paint can solve most of the issues (although in it's current state I would not class this as a 4.5 star hotel). However, the staff deserve a special mention they are extremely attentive and can not do enough for you. The hotel is worth staying at for the staff alone. Don’t pay too much attention to the negative reviews on ‘the hill’. If you are reasonably healthy you will have no issues, it is only about 100 metres and takes a minute or two to get up. Overall we will be back, but we will check the reviews on the maintenance/state of the facilities
