Just returned froma 10 day family holiday at the Avista Hideaway and had a truly fantastic time.
WIthout question this is probably the nicest hotel I have stayed at, from the moment you enter the open fronted reception over looking the sea you think WOW.
It is situated in a great location away from the hustle and bustle of Pa Tong, but close enough to get a tuk tuk or taxi with ease. Tuk Tuk's are exepensive in Phuket but do not pay more than 300baht.
The room was very spacious and clean and i loved the rainfall shower head!!!!
All of the staff at the the hotel are very courteous and will do anything they can to help. At breakfast during my stay there was always a member of the management team present. Ellen in particular was always very pleasent and interested in what you had planned for your stay and whether she could offer any assistance or information.
The food was also excellent. The selection available in the buffet breakfast is unbelievable, you can also order eggs whatever style and omelletes with no problem at all. We also ate at other times in the hotel and everything we tried was very good and resonably priced for a 5 star resort. Even the head chef made regular appearances in the restaurant and came and had a chat to make sure you were happy with your food. Something I had not experienced at other hotels.
The hotel pools are all very clean with the main to pools looking out into the ocean, there is also a gym if you fancy it :/
The kids club was very good the kids were off and entertained for most of the day leaving me to relax. There was also a games room with pool and table tennis.
Most nights we went upto the roof top bar for a cocktail before heading out which has a great view over the ocean and fishing boats. After to speaking to one of the managers he also said there are plans in progress to open up another roof top bar, restaurant and library. So even though a new hotel, they are constantly looking at ways to improve.
I will definately be returning the only problem it won't be soon enough.
