Novotel Phuket Kata Avista Resort And Spa

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The breakfast was splendid and the travel staff was very knowledgeable. Also, the front-desk staff goes above and beyond. The room was spacious with a great patio although the bathroom could have been cleaner. Also, the hotel is located on a very steep hill but there's a very fitting shuttle that I never used. Also, its near one of the better beaches (Kata) and retail. They also have good amenities and ambiance. Great option for the price.

Clean, comfrtoble, great staff. Only drawback is the hill it is on, and the climb

This resort was really nice in general. The best part was the pool area. Beautifully landscaped and plenty of shade and comfortable chairs. Wish they had a place at the pool to get dry towels. They give you a 2 beach towels in your room everyday, but it would be nice to replace the soaking wet ones. I chose to stay at the pool on days I was not scuba diving, as opposed to going to the beach. The beach was a big disappointment. Crowded and walking there you cross an area that smells of sewage, which drifts over to the beach. You also have to pay for chairs there. The sunset was fantastic there and definitely worth the walk to the beach for that. The room was very comfortable with a good view of the pool. Very modern technology with the light controls, TV, etc. The food was good, what I expected. One evening they had a buffet and the band was fantastic. Walking up the hill from town was an annoyance. I am someone who loves to hike, but that hill was VERY steep, especially when it is hot out. The other negative was the taxi mafia. It's nuts that the cab from the airport costs 700B but the cab to the airport was 1500B. What a rip off. Although the resort was very nice, if I returned to the Phuket area, I would stay at a hotel that was directly on a beautiful beach and also had the wonderful pool. If that isn't important to you, this is a nice place to stay.

This hotel is definitely worth it!! The staff is so helpful and friendly, they make you feel so welcomed and right at home.

Short walk to the beach and provide free shuttle to Patong Beach. Great place to stay. Highly recommend this place.

The Hotel was the perfect distance from the beach and Kata center. (Both can be loud and crouded) The hill was a bit of exercise but definetly worth the climb to be a bit secluded. Hotel and staff were great and would stay there again.

beautiful club room with views of bay. only drawback is that the hotel is on top of a hill so have to walk up and down to go to beach/city. breakfast was good.

I stayed at this hotel with my girlfriend for 6 days. It was an extremely relaxing trip and the hotel was amazing. Most of the other reviews you will read will have complaints about the hill leading up to the hotel. It is very steep but not too long a walk and it is nice to be atop a hill in case of a tsunami! It really isn't as bad as people make it seem though.

Wonderful welcome, beautiful resort and wonderful staff. Only thing is there were ants on the bed and almost everywhere. There might not be anything any resort in Phuket can do about that though.
