Mooi modern hotel

Posted 20-Apr-2015
Pros: De kamer was zeer ruim, goede ligging (5min van strand en centrum), personeel zeer vriendelijk en ze doen er alles om het beste te maken van je vakant
Cons: Kamers op het 5e verdiep hebben veel last van aircos die op het dak staan. Zeer luidruchtig een hele nacht.
Location: Goed gelegen
Alles was perfect buiten 1 minpunt, de luide aircos snachts. Voor de rest raad ik dit hotel aan iedereen aan!

4 Star Property with 5 Star Service

Posted 20-Apr-2015
Pros: Location, Service
Cons: Cushions and Fabrics should be upgraded, breakfast buffet needs better fruit selection
Location: Kata Beach is nearby. Kata town is nearby- easy walk for shopping, restaurants, nightlife.
If you are expecting a 5 star hotel experience, this should not be your first choice. There is not enough attention to the details that a 5 star facility would provide. Breakfast Buffet- 2-3 out of 5 stars. As all have mentioned- fruit offerings are sparse. One day in particular (Sunday) small tiny over ripe bananas as one of the 3 fruits, OJ, water and one other type of juice, greasy potatoes, the chef could not understand basic English. Numerous food pots containing the hot food were empty or almost empty. The location in Kata is good- trek to the bottom of the road and take a right to Kata Beach, go left to walk to Karon beach. Kata Beach is about a 10 minute walk, the southern edge of Karon is 20 minutes. The positives of this hotel are: 1. The beautiful 2 level pool – very nice 2. Excellent service provided by motivated employees- 3. Great location in between Kata and Karon, 7 minute walk to Starbucks, shopping, restaurants 4. The rooftop bar (open from 6- 7:30PM daily) offers a beautiful view of Kata Beach along with relaxing music, comfortable lounge chairs along with gigantic floor pillow beds on an artificial grass surface that makes for a very romantic and memorable evening. The negatives are: 1. Breakfast buffet is standard and tired, lacking in variety and quality of food. It’s not terrible, but not great either. 2. The HILL up to the hotel- I am rating is as a negative because while it is a short walk, it is very steep and not something you will look forward to.

Pros: Everything
Location: Good central point for both Kata and Karon beaches, great places to eat enjoy and all the Thai lifestyle,
Great hotel where staff were super friendly and helpful, close to beach but a steep walk up the hill. Clean and plush with excellent facilities. Great rooms with plenty of space and a balcony to enjoy

We stayed here for two weeks and found the hotel to be what we expected. Clean and tidy and very friendly and nice staff. Facilities were good although you couldn't sit by the pool very often as a lot of guests will reserve their seats before 9am. Some even leaving their belongings and leaving the area for several hours, this was very frustrating as other guests should also be able to use these facilities. The breakfast food was nice however there was little variation in the food served. The hotel offers dos treatments however it can be very pricey, especially when places outside the hotel provide the same treatment at a much cheaper price. Be prepared for a walk up the hill too.. It certainly kept us fit during our stay. It's a nice place for couples as kata is a bit quieter than patong and not a party hotspot. Overall a lovely stay here.

Great stay at Kata

Posted 11-Apr-2015
Cons: Better quality bathroom products
I can't have enough good things to say about the service. Only feedback is, the quality of the bathroom amenities needs to be improve. Great location and the room is very spacious. We will be back.

Great!

The staff were great. They were all very friendly and helpful. FYI - be ready to walk a steep hill if you decide to walk to the beach or around town.

Great Location & Fantastic Staff

Posted 20-Mar-2015
Pros: Location, Staff, Food, Good Value
Cons: Clean Shower Recess of Mould
We had a brilliant time at The Avista. There was a group of 8 of us staying to celebrate my friends 50th birthday. The friendly, helpful staff are simply priceless. Everyone we interacted with at The Avista were pleasant, happy & helpful. We ate at the Hotel Restaurant a couple of times. It was a very good alternative for dinner when you've had a busy day out. The location is excellent. Lots of shops & good restaurants in close proximity. People comment on the steep hill up to The Avista, However we all enjoyed walking up it (several times a day). The only issue for me was the mould in the shower. It's a shame as the rest of the room & Hotel & gardens are kept very clean & tidy.

Gevoel van luxe kleinschalig hotel

Posted 15-Mar-2015
Pros: Het hotel ligt in Kata, een klein plaatsje zonder de hectiek die Patong wel heeft.
Location: Het hotel ligt op loopafstand van het strand. Op het strand zijn overigens geen ligbedden te huur. Iets om rekening mee te houden.
Schitterend hotel op een rustige locatie. Je hebt nooit echt het gevoel dat je in een groot hotel zit. Nette kamers met lekkere bedden. Elke dag schone handdoeken voor zwembad of strand is ook zeer prettig.

Nice hotel only one small lift for whole building

Posted 22-Feb-2015
Pros: Room was clean and well fitted out
Cons: Restaurant fairly busy and food limited, towels not available at the pool
Location: Located at top of steep hill which is a killer to walk up. The shops and restaurants in street are good
Overall service was good but room was noisy from room above. The hotel is at the top of the hill and the walk up 200 mts is very steep and hard to walk up Food in restaurant is only average I would rate the hotel as 4 star.
