We really enjoyed our week here. Perfect location to explore Surin and surrounding areas.

The deluxe suite was great, perfect views, nice jacuzzi on terrace and huge space inside.

All facilities in the hotel were great.
Not the best prices in Phuket but very good value for money.

Staff were fantastic, very helpful.

Was very easy to travel around from Surin to other parts. 20-30mins to Patong, Bang Tao, Cape Yamu (east coast) and airport.

The free beach club passes are good. Free shuttle service so quite convenient, just 2 min drive.

Would definitely stay again if we go back. Great hotel.

After spending eight nights in busy Bangkok, my wife and I wanted to wind down at a beach resort in Phuket and booked into the Ayara Hilltops on the recommendation of friends. We were not disappointed as we had the most relaxing week ever. The hotel is set away from the crowds and therefore quiet and peaceful. The room was beautifully decorated, with an outdoor shower and dip pool/spa. The pool area was delightfully relaxing and we had the choice of massages, sauna etc. The only drawback was that the beach was about 10 minutes' walk away. However, this was a minor inconvenience. The meals were delicious and, amazingly, dinner cost little more than $30, even with a drink each. Tremendous value! The staff really looked after us and made sure everything went as smoothly as possible for our break at the hotel.

Room Tip: Stay as long as possible to fully wind down,

4th visit to Ayara in just under 3 years. Apart from some rejuvenation of the suite and some reorganisation of the poolside space, nothing has changed. Its perfect and nothing is too much trouble for the ever-friendly staff. See you all in 2015!

A hidden gem in Phuket! We like to thank our travel planners over at andamam adventures for moving us to this resort after we were unhappy with the White Beach resort we had booked ourselves from home. We had never heard of this resort before, definitely hidden gem category. Hilltop views are stunning, the staff is so friendly and the meals were beyond fault.

I stayed here with my wife during April 2014, and we both agreed it is one of the best hotels we've ever stayed in (perhaps only bested by our Four Seasons Florence experience).

The staff are absolutely fantastic, from the front desk staff to the guys driving the jeeps up to our apartment, nothing was too much trouble, and it was almost as if they anticipated our needs before we had to ask. Everything was done with a big smile - so charming!

The apartment was a "deluxe", and we couldn't really have asked for more. For once a hotel's photos are realistic! Extremely comfortable bed, lovely bathroom, as well as an outdoor bath and sun loungers.

Breakfast was great too - I had omelette or poached eggs most days, along with fresh fruit and yoghurt, and a pot of tea. The curry made an interesting (delicious) breakfast!

As others have mentioned, there's access to two beach clubs (the beach is 5-10 mins walk away, and the hotel provides a shuttle bus between certain hrs - 11am to 6pm I think). The beach clubs are great, free loungers, excellent service, and tasty food.

Couple of dinner options - the hotel food is amazing, so agree with others that it's worth trying at least once. I had chicken satay (best I've ever had, and it's my Thai starter of choice!), followed by the trio of curries - amazing!

Also, Taste on the nearby beach had lovely food - the pulled pork sliders and fish tacos were addictive!

We're expecting our first child in a few months, so unfortunately we won't be able to stay at The Ayara Resort again (no kids allowed), but we're recommending it to all of our friends. We really did not want to leave!

I don't normally write reviews so I'm afraid it will be short but sweet.

Quite simply this is the best hotel we have ever stayed in from start to finish, it is truly amazing.

If you go to Phuket, Surin is the place to go to and you must stay at the Ayara hilltops for a slice of heaven.
