Superb Hotel

Posted 23-Jan-2015
This hotel was an excellent choice for our holiday. The hotel was spotlessly clean, the rooms very well appointed (we were upgraded free of charge from a deluxe to a club room) and the staff were among the friendliest and most helpful that we can remember in a hotel (and we have stayed at many). It's located in a pleasant, quiet spot but only a couple of hundred metres from the shops, restaurants, bars, etc. and is an easy walk to both Kata (400m) and Karon beaches (1000m). Short steep hill to the hotel but no problem at all except for the elderly or disabled. Excellent taxi service right outside the front of the hotel at sensible fixed prices. We stayed in the high season and never had any problem getting sunbeds at the pool when we needed them! Very good breakfast with lots of choice. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Nice clean hotel

Posted 20-Jan-2015
Pros: Cleanliness
Cons: Transport to hotel
Location: Close to amenities, but the steep steep hill very of putting and therefore wouldn't stay here again because of the hill
Very nice room, pool was lovely, but the steep steep hill put you off coming back to the hotel when out. Even taxis charged more to go up the hill

Great hotel, well located.

Posted 14-Jan-2015
Great hotel at Kata Beach. Close to the beach and the shops. The only complaint we had was that the hotel was that the hotel was situated on top of a steep road. The hotel shuttle bus only ran twice a day so we had to pay for a taxi or tuk tuk every time we had bags or goods with us.

Pleasant all round

Posted 14-Jan-2015
Four families totalling 18 people checked in at the Resort 2nd January 2015 for 10 days.The staff at Avista were exceptionally pleasant and always willing to help out with any requests. Proximity to shops and beaches ever so close. Thouroughly recommend this Resort. No negatives with the onle exception being the hill up to the Resort.

Close to the beach and shops / restaurants.

Posted 13-Jan-2015
Pros: Location as it is well placed but also not right in the main strip so has a calm / tranquil air about it and close to the beach, literally 10 minutes.
Cons: Showers ran hot and cold so could improve on that but didn't create big problem for us.
Location: Always research into the things you want to do. Easy these days to do that before you go anywhere.
The staff are wonderful and helpful. Located on a hill, albeit a small one but steep at one point. Good exercise but some would find it hard going. Coming up is easy enough as tuk tuks are happy to take you up if you don't want to walk back. Restaurant is very good and of course more expensive than some of the local eateries but that choice is yours to take. We ate there most nights rather than face the rigours of the Main Street as it was calm and relaxing. Pool area is tricky as not enough beds to cater for all and of course you get the usual folk who go down early to 'reserve' their spot with towels, shoes and hats placed on blocks of beds ! Happens everywhere so a tricky one for all hotels to deal with. It's a weird mentality. We loved the beach so wasn't a problem for us. The rooftop terrace / bar is open for sunset drinks from 5.30pm to 7.30pm and it is a fabulous view of the bay and providing not cloudy, spectacular sunsets. It was our first ever visit to Thailand and we had a great time. Would definitely stay again if we revisit the same area.

きつーい坂の上のホテル

Posted 13-Jan-2015
アビスタクラブに宿泊しました。 お部屋の飲み物が無料だと思っていたのですが、ミネラルウオーターのみ。 お部屋は広くて、快適でした。広いベランダが各部屋についており、喫煙する方には良かったみたいです。 洗濯物や水着が干せてよかったです。 1日、ベットメーキングのチップを忘れてしまったら、バスタオルが新しいものに変えてもらえていなかったのが残念。電話したら持ってきてくれましたけど・・・。 ビーチやレストラン、マッサージに行くのには便利な場所でしたが、きつーい坂があり帰りは大変でした。 こんどカタビーチに泊まるなら、違うホテルにすると思います。 全体的には、良いホテルだと思います。

ビーチに近い素敵なホテル

Posted 05-Jan-2015
完全なオーシャンビューではないが、十分雰囲気はあるホテル。ホテルのプールは狭くおすすめできない。キッズスペースには、スタッフが常駐しており、子供連れには重宝する。入口付近で地元民が洗濯を安くで請け負っており、非常に便利。

ビーチも近く、対応がいい

Posted 05-Jan-2015
Pros: 朝食がおいしい、特にパンは自家製。部屋も余裕の広さがあり電子レンジ付の部屋もある。
Cons: ビーチに近いので、パラソルやシュノーケルセットなどのレンタルがあれば更に良い
Location: 近くにレストランも多くあるが、どこに行ってもおいしい。またホテルの向かいにレンタルバイクショップがあり1日1000円程度で借りられるので島内の足としては非常に便利。
スタッフの対応もよく、清潔さを維持しようと努力している姿勢がうかがえる。ビーチバーもあり便利だが、価格が高いのが少々難あり。メインストリートからも離れているので夜は非常に閑静な場所であるが、直前に急な坂があり歩いて登ると少々疲れる。(特にお年寄りにはきついと思われる。)

Excellent hotel, not on beach, nice view of ocean.

Posted 02-Jan-2015
My wife and I had a 4 day stay. We had the ocean view room on the top floor. It was a very nice room and the view was great. We found the food very good, but had some minor problems with the restaurant staff. The staffing in reception was excellent. The hotel is up a step hill from anything and the shuttle service is not frequent. Overall, a very nice hotel, service was above average, nice view, but you are not really close to anything. It was more expensive than we normally pay for a hotel.
