Five star hotel with great amenities
Comfortable room with ocean view, close to the beach
We came back to this hotel to stay for two additional nights after spending the first night here. The hotel is located on a hill so walking up can be a little tiring. The hotel offers many facilities including two pools, a small fitness center, library/reading room and spa treatments. The nearby town is lively but no as crazy as the Patong area. Overall, we had a pleasant time staying here.

Great views but steep road down to town and beach
Views, quiet, calm and restful
The hotel was very comfortable with great bviews of Kata Beach and the town. It is up steep hill a little distance from the town and shops but still only a 5 minute walk. restaurant light and airey with very attentive staff and a nice quiet atmostphere.

Peaceful and good location
Everything near the hotel
I went for my holiday and it's a very peaceful place for resting. And near the hotel there's everything: restaurants, massage shops, exchanges and beautiful beaches(Kata and Karon).

good facilities and near to the beach
good food and reasonable prices
i stayed here with my girlfriend for four nights. hotel is about 5 mins walk from the beach and facilities are good. it's a bit noisy though as the music from the bars on the street wasn't stopped until 4 am or maybe 5 am. it's alright if you stay in the main building as you won't hear that. i changed my room once. overall it's a standard 5 star hotel, but it's a little bit crowded (hotel has about 120 rooms), i'd rather stay in a villa with less people around next time.

Great rooms, clean but missing service.
Great specious room and a lovely terrace, good for famalies
The hotel was actually great. Nice rooms, clean and a nice terrace. The only point for complain would be the missing service. The staffs are very friendly and ambitious but missing training for a 5 star Hotel. There was no one to welcome us and we had to carry the luggage by our self. If you travel with two little children those small things make a lot after a long car ride. Beside this little minus it was a good experience.

lovely hotel with great staff, spacious room
spacious room same as the photo on agoda
Stay for 2 nights in Avista club room. The room is big and same as the photos that you see in agoda. The staff were nice and helpful, always with smile. Breakfast is nice too. however, it really suggest to rent a car there, because the hotel is located on a steep slope. Swimming pool is very small, suggest to go Kata beach which is just 5-10mins walk from hotel. There are many restaurants around the hotel area, no worry for meal.

Great hotel, perfect reception staff
Room size and staff
be aware this is not near the beach. great place to chill, the reception staff amazing, however the restaurant staff were not either chatting or not there. worst service ever, all they wanted to know was your room number!. the hotel is perfect if u want to chill. nice pool and facilities. if you are above 50 unless u are super fit you will struggle with the hill. a note to the management the courtesy bus to patong is a joke. too infrequent and too small. if you are really wanting to give service you need to run this all day, a13 seat bus that you have to book the day before is pathetic. it should be running continuous as they do in vietnam or thailand.
