We got in early on our arrival date, and not only was the room ready shortly after arrival, but we were greeted with icy towels, pineapple juice and after asking for a place to get a cup of coffee, we were comped...

Novotel Phuket Kata Avista Resort and Spa is a wonderful property. During our stay here, we found it was well maintained, the location was ideal (although walking uphill can be quite a task!) & the staff was friendly. We stayed in the club room on the top floor which had views of the swimming pool from the balcony & stunning... More

The hotel was very nice and the location was great. Kata beach was perfect for us. Beautiful, not too busy, and there was plenty of night life. We stayed here for 6 nights and were not disappointed. Each day our room was cleaned and they even organized our clothes and shoes in the room. Breakfast was buffet style and was... More

We stayed in the Novotel Kata Avista for 5 nights (2 rooms) in November. Overall, the hotel is fine. It looks like Novotel have only recently taken on the property as the branding is inconsistent, so I'm sure there will be improvements to come. The lobby is open and the welcome pleasant. Our rooms were on the 3rd floor and... More
