Beautiful Hilltop Hotel overlooking Surin Beach
Beautiful Gardens, Beautiful Pool, Beautiful Villas
Ayara Hilltops was a lovely stay in Surin Beach. We have previously stayed at the Twin Palms but the nightly rate has increased drastically since we were there two years ago. Looking for a cheaper option, we chose Ayara Hilltops. We liked Ayara better than Twin Palms. Sizeable villas situated within lush gardens on a mountain side with a beach view in the background. The property is 8 years old but looked brand new. The pool is stunning. Great value for money. Only downside- the walk to the villa is long and uphill, but the hotel offers buggy service 24x7. We found the way the hotel was situated added to the character and also provided more privacy.

reasonably comfortable stay
quiet, comfortable, clean
comfortable stay with basic neccesiities. No indoor Shower. Service was good for an average 5 star hotel but has no personal touch. Baggy service was fast. Spa has limited treatments to choose from. 7 out of 10 for spa masaage and scrub service. Staff were not able to recommend their spa treatmenst when asked. Reception staff were friendly and polite. prior to my stay I have sent an email to the hotel to get a room with a full sea view. I was willing to top up the extra charges but was only given a room with a pertial sea view. view was blocked. Whirlpool in the room was not letting out water jets . whilrpool was not very clean or inviting. Overall good hotel with good service for a 5 star hotel however Would not recomment this to my friends as there are better hotels with service with a personal touch available given the price paid.

Great Hotel & Staff
The location , the friendly helpful staff and the Spa
I would highly recommend this hotel , from the time of our check in the staff were very efficient and friendly . As the name would suggest the hotel is built on a very steep hillside , here was no problem to walk down to the lobby some 200 steps , but the return was made easy by a free shuttle service from the lobby . If required a phone call to reception had the shuttle service at the room within a few minutes . The service was also available to take residents to the beach , 2 minutes away . The Surin beach is wonderful , soft sand and clear warm sea . The hotel provides loungers and beach towels . Right on the beach there are a great variety of restaurants , great for a casual lunch . Can't wait to return .

Relaxing, luxurious and great food
The hotel was great located at Surin Beach - a more exclusive part of Phuket. The service at the hotel was fab, we had excellent food/cocktails and really enjoyed chilling at the lovely swimmig pool.
