“Really good stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2012

We stayed here for 5 nights in Apr 12. Part of me did book this hotel because it was near the tsunami evacuation point although we had left Phuket before the recent scare. I loved this hotel. When we arrived we were met by friendly polite staff who upgraded our room and gave us a voucher for a free dinner - not sure what we did to deserve it! The room we got was a suite, with kitchen and lounge, jacuzzi bath and massive shower with views over Kata beach where the longtail boats are moored. The room was not perfect in that the mosaic tiles were lifting off the floor of the jacuzzi, the aircon was noisier than most, and the lounge had a very large adjoining door to the next door room which was not sound proof but these things didnt bother us at all. Minor work was being done to the rooftops immediately in front of our balcony which meant your view was interrupted by some concrete bags and some workmen but they were very quiet and as we werent in the room during the day they caused no bother at all. Breakfasts were very good - all possible food options covered. The pool was gorgeous and peaceful with great views and lots of lovely bougainvillea. There are not a lot of sunbeds but as the hotel wasnt busy this didnt matter. We only ate in the hotel for evening meal once to use our voucher as we preferred to explore local restaurants. The food was good but portions were not big. As said at the start, I liked the fact that this hotel was up a hill, I enjoyed the walk which was not far and the exercise was welcome. It is a quite area, away from the chaos of the town and road noise. Listening to the bullfrogs in the evening from the balcony was a highlight! You can take the road if you dont like the more direct route down the steps to the beach front. We did both. The steps/path are snake territory in my view and there were some stray dogs on it. It leads down to a fairly stinky tidal klong where local boats are moored before the beach which will not be everybody's cup of tea and for that reason I wouldn't necessarily recommend the steps. Taking the road will be fine for most - it is steep so if you have mobility issues stay somewhere else. One genuine negative was that we had the previous occupants room service plates on our doorstep for 24 hours before being removed, and only after I moved them into the middle of the corridor! Reception staff stepped around them! Overall this was a good hotel at a good price. It was not perfect but I felt we got a lot for our money anyway. I would recommend it and I would defintely stay again. Thanks for a great stay!

Great food. Relaxing pool. Very nice couples massage. Gorgeous view. This hotel is NOT on the beach. It is up on a hill with a view of the ocean/beach which was great for us. There are lots of views and two different towers. We liked the garden view which looked out over the greenery with the ocean, beach and parts of the island as a back drop. Good shower room. We are returning next month for another fabulous stay. Short walk down to the beach.

This hotel is surrounded by greenery, it has a style reminiscent of the Mayan buildings. Its location is on a hill with a panoramic view of the creek Katha Beach.
It has a spa with masseuses really fabulous.
The sea view rooms also have views of the beautiful swimming pool divided into two parts (top and bottom) with waterfalls, surrounded by palm trees and tropical vegetation (orchids and other tropical flowers), also has an outdoor jacuzzi . Breakfast is served in the outdoor restaurant near the pool, overlooking the beautiful gulf.

Room Tip: Deluxe Grand Sea View

We got the Aspasia on a reduced rate and was really glad we had not paid full price. Our room was stunning as there was a beautiful lounge and kitchen area which was fantastic for entertaining some friends who were also staying in the hotel. Our problem was the smell coming from the bathroom of blocked drains and it took 3 attempts to get someone to give us an oil burner! The food was ok nothing special but much more expensive than 5 mins down the road at local restaurants. About 4 times more which I think is excessive! Beware the path next to the hotel going down to the beach, it may be a short cut but I nearly stepped on a cobra! It is a very steep hill to get down to the restaurants and bars but toucan always pay for a tuk tuk. Not a bad hotel but not as luxurious as pictures make out!

We visited this hotel back in 2010 (August) for just one night as we moved on to Phi Phi Islands.
The hotel rooms were absolutely amazing. Super clean, elegant and confortable beds.
The pool was probably the best thing of all.
The personal was also very friendly, especially the guy at the pool, and made us having a good day.

The location is pretty quiet, nice if you want to relax, the only thing I didn't like was that little river right in front of the hotel, pretty dirty and full of ants.

If I'd go ever again to Kata beach, this hotel would be my choice

More than 100 sailing boats in the bay participating in The Phuket Kings Cup Regatta was an amazing view. The hotel is built in the cliff and has spacious rooms and an interesting architecture. When going back to the hotel – take a tuk-tuk. The hill road is steep.
Don’t even think about going to the beach down/up the jungle path. It is slippery, mudded and dirty at the bottom. Concrete blocks (former quay) are very difficult to force.
We missed a small table and a chair in the room. Only 1 chair is available. The price level for extras is quite high.

Stayed in aspasia with 3 girlfriends. Booked a deal on a Garden room through agoda but upgraded to sea view in a suite with 2 bedrooms , lounge and huge balcony.
Room fantastic, jacuzzi, double sinks, walk in shower, beautiful view of sea, kitchenette.
Only issue is very noisy air con makes it difficult to sleep at night.
Good size swimming pool although one block is being renovated and
This looks over the pool so this was noisy during the day. We went to the beach via a short 10 min walk and hired sunbeds. Easy 5 min walk to the shops and great restaurants.
Had a drink in hotel one night but no one else in bar and was all shut up by 1030- we had to turn the fans off ourselves!
Service Ok but similar to all places we visited-could be improved.
Would recommend this hotel.
