What the reviews say

Reviews for the Avista Phuket Resort & Spa, Kata Beach are very good and almost universally positive, which is actually comforting and a bit surprising for one of the less expensive 5-star resorts in Phuket. Nearly everyone says the service and rooms are great, and that the modern amenities are top notch.

Most guests enjoy the location, which is a 5-minute walk from the beach, and they point out that there are free shuttle vans to the beach and to the large shopping mall in nearby Patong. Considering this is one of the larger and more family oriented Phuket resorts, it is reviewed well and seems to be very good value.
