Great!

Posted 27-Mar-2015
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.

Beautiful resort and close everything

Posted 12-Feb-2015
The resort itself beautiful but located on quite a steep hill- great workout though :) The food is great (especially the buffet breakfast) and the staff are not only friendly but the service they provide is exceptional.

Nice hotel - away from embarassing tourists

Posted 01-Feb-2015
Pros: Seclusion - away from Patong and the types of tourists it attracts.
Cons: That 60 degree walk up the hill to get to the hotel. I understand they are installing a trolley type system to move people up to the hotel.
Location: Excellent location - away from Patong. Plenty of good restaurants and shops close by.
Great hotel - away from the hustle and bustle of Patong. Still surrounded by quality places to eat and shop.

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.
