        It's close to the Surin beach, just 5 mins walk from the lobby. 7-11 and family mart nearby the beach. You can buy anything there. We had late check in at mid night. Arranged pick up from the airport. Staffs are really nice and helpful! We forgot to bring adapter and borrow from the resort. We stayed in 2 places in this trip, AYARA is wonderful! Would go back next time! Btw, the resort sent my boyfriend an free massage birthday card! It's really sweet!

        Rooms; view; staff
        Two of us spent Xmas week here. It was raining most of the time (not unusual for Phuket) so we spent most of the time in our beautiful mid-level room with amazing view of the bay. We usually eat out when we're in Thailand but room service dining is worth trying (esp. crab curry). If you're after a relaxing time then I recommend - but there are a few staircases involved! The suites are built on a steep hill (hence the views) but there is a buggy service.

        Super hotel”
        The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. We booked the junior suite and the room was fantastic, very big with an outdoor jacuzzi and separate outdoor bath. The hotel offers excellent facilites
        Location of the hotel isn't really worth money paid! it is set right on the side of the road full of cars. Between the pool and the road is the bamboo fence and a side walk behind. Hotel doesn't have it's own beach!!!! Hotel it self is very good, with very good service! but.. as soon as you leave the hotel to go to the beach, you get into facilities of maximum 2 stars, or even less. Ayara is renting few places in the local beach, with local service. On the beach there is no representative of the hotel! you are "taken care of" by locals.As soon as you get to the beach and start to "enjoy" it's service-you regret money paid for the hotel!!! The total price should be half less!

        Gorgeous setting as resort rooms are perched on top of a hill, away from the hustle and bustle of nearby traffic & providing elevated views. Room was well-appointed and well-maintained with a large bathroom & outdoor whirlpool in the balcony where one can relax while soaking in the beautiful ocean view. Short stroll (3-5 min) to surin beach, many cheaper restaurants and spa options available there. Breakfast was a good spread. Had such a wonderful stay.

        the view, the room and the food.
        the food is amazing. to be honest, i would fly to phuket just for the crabmeat curries and the crabmeat cappuccino soup. authentic aside, the food is a great mix of thai with a new twist. the drink is one word 'omg', the 'white elephant' cocktail is must try. the room is great with california king bed and a two shower heads with one outdoor, which is the best. the only thing is, the balcony is just 'not nice'. eventho its big, you just dont have the mood to seat there. overall, its amazing.

        You are in good hand with Ayara Hilltops”
        Service with you in mind, breakfast, surin beach
        Breakfast was one of the hotel selling point. They even have fresh fruit juice. The tea was great. The bread was great. oh and they will put a bag of cookies or bread for us everytime they come in to clean up the room. Awesome! The room has two tv and a hifi set for you to hook up your iPhone/MP3 player while you enjoy in the pool. the secenery is by far the best we seen in phuket. You can spent the whole day reading books doing nothing in your room. And if you decide to leave the hotel you will be given towel even on trips that you book with another tour agent. Surin beach was great. We regerted not spent all our time on it. The hotel does have transport to patong beach and Central Festival at a cost. (If you love shopping these are the two area not to be missed) The nightlife at patong beach is also great. Last but not least the buggy service to bring you from your hotel room to the hotel lobby. We actually didnt remember it was only available from XX:XXhrs to XX:XXhrs. We use it almost everytime to get in and out of our room. And we are always serve with a smile. Thanks you for giving us such great service and we will surely be back to enjoy our holiday again with Ayara Hilltops Boutique Resort & Spa.

        Nice & peaceful but a bit secluded..”
        Well designed and kind staffs
        It was nice hotel and you can access Surin beach as well. Surin beach is not that big but it was ok. The pool is a bit small but it was quite comfortable to use. Because we visited during the raining season, there were not many guests, so it was not that crowded and the staff remembered us and even our room number. We also visited Fanta Sea near the hotel and it was interesting. We enjoyed it. The transportation is not that convenient and expensive from and to the hotel. So you need to think about the purpose of your trip carefully.

        Room
        Stayed for 3 nights at this hotel. Requested for free upgrade of room and late checkout due to my flight timing, but both requests were rejected. Not sure why they were rejected, as all we saw were about 10 couples or less who were staying in the hotel, and there were 48 rooms altogether. Room was ok, with a whirlpool. Whirlpool was not working initially, but the staff managed to fix the problem. Nothing much near the hotel, except for a few mini-marts and beach clubs. Went for happy hour at the restaurant. While I was there, happened to see the waiter preparing an ice-blended drink for someone else. The waiter took a spoon to taste the drink, put the same spoon back into the drink, stirred the drink and tasted it one more time. He did not stop even though he noticed I was looking.

        Just breathtaking views, extremely comfortable rooms, outdoor jacuzzi was a superb addition, staff extremely friendly and warm.
        I would definitely recommend this as a honeymoon resort and a honeymoon destination. The rooms are luxurious and extremely comfortable. With breathtaking views all around, you can catch beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The outdoor jacuzzi was a lovely addition but the outside area lacked a bit of privacy for honeymooners and couples. The breakfast is great with lots of variety. From english to asian variety. The menu for room service was delicious as well and the service just superb. Overall the staff are just brilliant. They allowed a very early check in with no questions asked and gave us a late check out with an option to shower at the spa before going to the airport. The spa however was a disappointment. It didn't quite feel value for money as we had a better experience elsewhere outside the resort. The resort offers you free access to a couple of beach clubs which is just a few minutes away. We enjoyed this every day. This was a definite value for money for the service and standards of this resort. We hope to return real soon!

        The room is very comfortable and well-stock with amenities. Quiet surroundings. There is a wide variety at the breakfast buffet.
        We were received with a very warm welcome and the staff all spoke good English and they are all young and full of energy. Check-in was a breeze and one of the staff brought us on a short orientation around the resort. The room is perfect, set amongst lush greeneries, with a partial ocean view. The breakfast buffet spread has a wide variety and food was replenished even up to closing time. The resort management noticed that it was my birthday and surprised me with a birthday cake and the staff wished me as soon as I walked into reception on my birthday morning. This is truly a very personable resort and has made our stay a very memorable one. Thank you Ayara!

        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.

        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.

        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 .
