Greatness within a property
Excellent service
I had an excellent time in Avista, right from the start till the end. I had one issue with the aircon one nightand the service recovery were beyond words. This is what service is about. My only problem is the steep slope to the hotel... I was huffing n puffing when getting up the slope.... Might need to address just that by maybe providing a buggy service. Breakfast was good. Excellent location to Kata beach & restaurants, just mins away.... Really enjoyed myself n wished had stayed longer.

Nice but overpriced for what you get--2 stars
Reasonable prices in the restaurant
Numerous things went wrong with our rooms. Yes, rooms. They moved us once but only after a day of not fixing the problem. Then we had other problems, which led to two workmen in our room on NY Eve fixing the fan in the A/C. Not to mention two sleepless nights because of noise. The staff is nice and they kept giving us things because things were not working and couldnt get fixed right. We got a cake, two meals, and free taxi. The problems are not what you expect at the Avista's rates. And the lack of quick fixes comes from the poor management structure. So, my suggestion is to go here only if you get a good deal. The property itself is nice (but see others on pool chairs) and the location great (except hill).

Lovely hotel with great service!
Shuttle buses
The rooms are big and clean and service is always with a smile. The location is not the most ideal if you are travelling out and back to the hotel by foot as it is on top of a small hill. However, the hotel top it up by offering shuttle buses to kata beach as well as to patong! So guests would not need to walk down and back up the slope! It is a quiet place away from the city so it is good for those who want away from the bustling life of Patong.

Good Service and Big Rooms!
Staff are willing to provide a room for us to shower even after we have checked out!
The Hotel is nice and clean and the beds are big. As there are not many rooms, you don't see much people around, which is a good thing as it feels serene. Will definitely choose Avista again if i go back to Phuket. only bad thing is it's at the top of a steep slope, though the slope up is manageable

Nice hotel
Location was fairly convenient - just down a steep hill to town, breakfasts were wonderful.
The hotel was smaller then we expected with limited seating around the pool and not a lot to do. The rooms are nice and modern, but the beds were very hard.

Good resort in Kata
Close to Kata Beach
The resort is very good, close to kata beach (5 mins walking) and kata center. The room is big and nice with all the necessary stuff. Two swimming pool in the resort and SPA is also recommended.

Good choice for vacation
Money Valued Resort
A very money valued resort in ktata. Location is good, very close to kata beach as well as kata center despite of the small hill in front of the resort. Room is big and nice, breakfast is also good with lots of choice. Overall it's a very good choice for vacation in Kata.
