생각보다 높은 언덕에 있어요;

Posted 20-Jul-2015
Pros: 깨끗한 방, 늦은 저녁까지 하는 수영장
Cons: 외부로 나가는 셔틀 횟수가 너무 적다. 해변으로 하루 2번밖에 가지 않는다.
후기를 보고 언덕이 얼마나 높을까 싶었는데, 생각보다 가파르고 높았다. 우기여서 망정이지 햇빛이 쨍쨍 내리쬐는 계절이었다면.... 까따, 까론 해변에서는 그다지(그래도 언덕을 오르고 내려야 해서 멀게 느껴진다) 멀지 않지만, 젊은 사람들 아니라면 이 호텔은 비추하고 싶다(특히나 건기라면..) 호텔 수영장이 밤 9시 까지 열어서 좋지만, 좀 작은 편이다. 식사는 딱히 맛있지도 맛없지도 않았다.

Excellent stay over New Years Eve 2015

Posted 20-Jul-2015
Pros: Large modern clean rooms, great staff, two pools.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: Located close to Kata beach and shops within walking distance.The Avista Resort is at the top of a hill so could be difficult for the unfit/elderly.
My boyfriend and I stayed at Avista Kata Beach for one week over New Years Eve 2014-2015. We stayed in the Avista Club room, which was spacious and very clean. The King bed was amazing to wake up in and the bathroom had both a bathtub and a huge shower. The buffet breakfast was also great, with staff seating you very promptly after arrival. They even make omelettes/eggs to order and cook it right in front of you. On New Years Eve, we did not get a chance to attend the special dinner which was put on by Avista as we went to Patong to get amongst the nightlife and everything was closed in Kata Beach when we returned. After watching the fireworks after midnight on the roof top terrace at Avista the staff happily arranged for a meal to be brought to our room as we were starving free of charge! Our stay with Avista was fabulous. We are returning to Avista for another week's stay in January 2016.

高台にあるホテル

Posted 14-Jul-2015
Pros: ホテルのクオリティー良さ
Cons: 部屋を掃除する人にムラがあり、綺麗に掃除してくれる人と、バスマット、トイレットペーパー、タオル忘れ ある人もいます。
家族で、行かせていただきました。 場所は、プーケット空港から、レンタカーで、約一時間高台に登る急勾配な坂がありました(歩くとキツイ) 5才子どももいたので、歩きの外出はしていませんでした。 ですが、ロケーションはとても良く海までの送迎バスが出ているので、問題無いですし徒歩でも食事する場所にも行けます(3分登る急勾配の坂を我慢すれば、) ホテル内は、中くらいのプールが2つありゆっくりするにはとても満足できました。

Great resort in a pleasant area of Phuket

Posted 13-Jul-2015
We very much enjoyed the Avista at Kata beach. The staff were lovely and the room was comfortable and clean. Swimming pools were excellent and we never had any trouble getting a pool side lounge. The only down side was the walk up the hill which we did eventually get used to. It was slightly harder with a 3 & 5 yo children that meant we sometimes felt trapped to eat at the resort rather than walking to the local shops because of the heat combined with the uphill walk home. Having said that, I would go back to the resort. Thanks you to Avista and all of your friends staff.

Great location hotel and it's very nice ..sadly a few staff members let it down ..to cap it off they tried to charge me for phone calls to my lost phone more money than what my room cost for a 20x 1 second call..would not stay there again neither would I recommend it .

Awesome Resort Highly Recommended!!!!

Posted 27-Jun-2015
Pros: Size of the room and location to the beach, restaurants, rentals and tours
Cons: Our bathroom tile was slightly chipped and my partner cut his toe it but they apologized and offered to change our room and left us a delicious fruits
I used Expedia to find several resorts and Avista won because of its facilities and location. The room was huge and the pool bar was a great time. Didn't have the chance to use the gym but it was very nice. We spent time playing ping pong and pool in the game room. Out front are scooter rentals and just down the hill is a cool pop-up shop that sells tours. And the lady that works there was super awesome. Yes, the hill to the hotel is quite steep felt like 45-degrees at time but it was worth it when we got to the hotel room.

Rapport qualité prix médiocre

Posted 25-Jun-2015
Pros: La taille de la chambre, les éclairages originaux, La literie de qualité.
Cons: La propreté en général et particulièrement à la piscine. Ascenseur insuffisant .Le ménage, les rangements vêtements inexistants.
Location: L'hôtel est situé sur une petite colline. relativement proche de la plage de Kata yai ( Très polluée ) dans le prolongement des sorties d'égouts.
Une côte redoutable par ces latitudes pour accéder à l'hôtel...prévoir douche et vêtements de rechange à chaque montée. La mer à Kata beach est un véritable égout il faut le savoir. Vous vous baignez dans l'urine déversée par des dizaines d'hôtels sans parler des sacs plastique, bouteilles, ampoules, planches à clous et j'en passe qui trainent dans l'eau et sur la plage. Santé fragile s'abstenir. La piscine de l'Avista et ses abords ne sont pas propres, feuilles dans l'eau qui ne sont pas ramassées, les coussins de chaises sont dégoutants et gorgés d'eau de pluie. Tâches de gras sur le sol aux abords de la piscine. Clientèle Chinoise bruyante très majoritaire. La salle pour le petit déjeuner est un véritable hall de gare bruyant. Mais le service est assez correct et efficace. Absence de rangements dans la chambre pour y poser vos vêtements. le placard ne dispose que d'une tringle. Le ménage est fait très superficiellement et l'approvisionnement en produits de toilette approximatif. Le personnel de la réception est très souriant et courtois envers les clients. Mais le rapport qualité prix est médiocre même en basse saison. Pour toutes ses raisons et en particulier les problèmes de propreté et de pollution, je ne recommande ni cet hôtel, ni le secteur de Kata beach. La Thaïlande semble tirer la qualité vers le bas et s'est tournée vers le tourisme de masse Clientèle Chinoise et Russe.

What a awesome resort!

Posted 10-Jun-2015
We just stayed here for 9 days and what a awesome place to stay! We loved every minute of it The front office staff where very friendly and helpful, the cleaner that came to clean our room everday always had a big smile on her face, the pool was great and our room was more than we could have asked for (club avista) we were on the top floor with a sea facing view. The only downside was the hill that its on although i enjoyed walking up it my girlfriend didnt. This is no big issue at all as there are taxis and tuk tuks or scooters for hire right infront of the resort. The restraunt food was good although a bit expensive as to be expected. The buffet breakfast was so good! I dont know what people are complaining about! Will definitely be returning to Avista!

Beautiful hotel and Kata beach is a great beach! The only recommendation I can make to the hotel is that the bathrooms need to be updates.
