Reviewed 27 February 2014

It was fantastic from the beginning to end.

- room: spotless, so many nice details, I would live there if I could. Never went to the beach once because we had everything we need.
- spa: fantastic
- restaurant: no need to look anywhere else, amazing service, great food and the prices are actually lower than outside
- Service in general: Feels like staff knows exactly what you want, before you even ask for it.
If I ever go back to Thailand I will stay in Ayara again - no need to look any further :-)

Thank you for making our stay so special and perfect.

My husband & I always go somewhere exotic for our anniversary and I must say that the Ayara Hilltops Resort & Spa tops the list so far! The hotel has a beautiful property with a swimming pool & day spa. I didn't even expect out room to have a living room as well as a beautiful view....we felt like it was our own little paradise because unlike most hotels we didn't have to walk through a hallway to get to our room; it's as if we had our own cabin to ourselves....the international staffs were very accommodating and friendly; especially at the breakfast area. The buggy or tuk tuk that would take us up the hill to our room is fantastic! Never had to wait too long for a ride & they will even drop you off at a couple of their private beaches: Bimi Beach is one that I like best! My only regret is that we stayed for only 8 days last month:( I definitely wouldn't mind going back again!

Room Tip: This is a fabulous hotel if you want serenity; however if you want something wild, it's only a 1...

This resort is a world apart from many others in Phuket. We booked this part of a Andaman Sky holiday. The location of this hotel is unbeatable. The beach area is pristine and the hotel is on the hill. How do you beat this in any way? As with many Thai hotels, the service stands out as some of the best. This is especially the case with this hotel. Please try the breakfast here, it is world standard. Other than that, try the spa, it is a little bit expensive but you are very much pampered like crazy. To go to this hotel and not try the spa is just not right.

We have just stayed at Ayara for 3 days before heading to Khao Lak the hotel is amazing, rooms large, bathroom great also outdoor shower. The staff are what makes this resort nothing is too much trouble. Surin Beach is beautiful, great restaurants along the sand there is a shuttle to take you down to the beach if you wish (but an easy walk) also the beach staff will phone to have you picked up.
Really enjoyed our stay and will return one day, was recommended by a few friends that had stayed here and now shall highly recommend myself.
Thank you Ayara you made our stay AMAZING.

Last year we stayed at the Ayara Hilltops and were so happy with the facilities and the service that we rebooked the resort for our January 2014 holidays !!!

The resort is still well managed, very clean and also well maintained.
All staff (reception, restaurant, housekeeping, porters, spa/welness...) are friendly, polite and helpful. What a team !!!
The General Manager is often in the public areas and very helpful.
One day our airco in the living room didn't work and was repaired within 1 hour !!!
We stayed in a Courtyard suite with a living room, a very large bed, an indoor and outdoor shower, 2 flatscreen TV's with many free movie channels, ....

The breakfast at the terrace is delicious with plenty of cold and hot food. We loved the eggs Florentine, the fresh waffles, the smoked salmon, the fresh juices, the Thai dishes, ....
The pool/bar offers daily - from 4pm till 6.30 pm - a happy hour > All drinks at reduced prices
The à la Carte restaurant offers good value for money
Every Saturday, there is a Thai buffet dinner and every Monday there is a Seafood buffet dinner.

Surin Beach is our preferred beach in Phuket.
New is that Ayara Hilltops guests have now free access to the Catch Beach Club or the Bimi Beach Club !!! If you like entertainment in the evening > Catch Beach Club is the place to be

I recommend anybody of thinking of going to Phuket to consider the Ayara Hilltops.
You will love every minute of your vacation

It was our first time in this hotel, stayed for 3 nights..It was truly amazing. From the moment we stepped down from our taxi, we were greeted, given refreshing drinks and cold towel. Check in was breeze. The staff showed us the property on where the breakfast area . gym , sauna , spa.. The buggy was ever ready to take us to our room and mind you the buggy service is 24 hours.

The rooms was big , clean , nice bathroom and awesome view. Pool was great. They also have buggy service to the beach starting from 11am till 6pm..You can choose to walk as it is not far from the beach...

I have no complains about the resort, almost perfect in every department. But i was little bit disappointed with the breakfast. Not much variety. For the money i pay per night, i feel the breakfast could have been better..But i cant entirely blame them as the crowd was rather small, so i dont expect them to have A to Z in the breakfast area...Nevertheless breakfast option needs to be improved..

Nearby places of interest : not much..But do check out The catch beach bar in surin beach..Its part of the hotel.. Very lively chic place especially at night..very well lit it up...

Overall : Good hotel and would love to come back.

We stayed in the Ayara Hilltops hotel for the first time, and had a lovely stay. We had a charming cabin up the hill from the main complex, which was really delightful. The rooms were large, and the bed very comfortable. The bathroom was OK, although the bath was difficult to climb into in its recess. Also the plug did not seal properly, so the water drained away quickly while trying to bath. The food in the restaurant was excellent and reasonably priced. Breakfast was huge! The internet service was patchy with a signal sometimes too weak for email, although it was strong enough inside the restaurant. Overall a lovely, friendly hotel and worth a visit.
