"Amazing Suite, and World-Class View!"
We LOVED staying at Ayara Hilltops. It was great to be away from the bustle of Patong. The view from our suite was truly world-class, just epic. We loved the layout of our suite, with a separate living area and bedroom, with a private pool in the middle -- SO GREAT! And lots of bird life. The restaurant was delicious -- we loved everything we tried, and often took advantage of room service. The service all around was welcoming and warm. The pool was beautiful. (Ask for Suite 842, killer view!)
"Our 10th Year Anniversary Getaway"
We had decided to return to our favourite Thai Holiday destination to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and as usual, Ayara delivered. For the 1st time, we had gotten ourselves pampered with the pool villa and now, can't imagine considering the other villas. We were there in late May till early June and had the most awesome time. Sorry for such a late review. Ayara had provided us with an awesome package that made our holiday memorable. We keep going back to Ayara because it always gets better and we can't get enough of the Spa Serenti. I have to say the only downside to this whole trip was the removal of all restaurants and bars along Surin Beach. Disappointing because it was only a 3 minute walk to the beach from the resort and in the past, having been able to sit outdoors and enjoy the varieties of drinks and snacks with the winds blowing and keeping you cool... now there is nothing... well hopefully they come up with portable WC's and more organised food and drinks vendors. But having said that, we ventured a little further (10 minute ++ walk / 3 minute scooter ride) to Bangtao Beach and there you go... problems sorted with lots more restaurants and bars along the beach. So, thank goodness, I can still come back to Ayara in the future and not worry about not having a beach to chill at. I must say though, anyone wanting to have a quiet and romantic time in Phuket, should get in touch with Ayara and have them arrange a great package. Its not too far to Phuket town or to Patong Beach so you could still have the adventures and romance. Thank you once again Ayara for a wonderful and memorable holiday. We will be back for sure. And to all the staff, your smiles, friendliness and help are second to none. Keep up the good work. Till next time
This is a very beautiful resort and my partner and I stayed here 3 nights as part of our honeymoon in a pool villa. The pool villa was amazing and we loved all the traditional Thai furnishings and architecture. We used the spa sereniti twice which was equally as nice. My only complaint is that the reception staff were a little rude and unhelpful which was disappointing as the resort itself is very very beautiful. I hate to say it but because of them I would stay elsewhere if I was to return to Phuket. We stayed in other places where the Thai locals were very friendly and helpful.
"Enormous villas, A+ service"
Absolutely gigantic luxury accommodations. Enormous villas for every room (though a bit of a hike to get to them from the main office, you'll either want to rent a car, have the office tuk-tuk take you, or be in good shape and walk). Also, one of the nicest pools we saw on our trip. Great poolside service and drinks. Definitely not cheap, but worth the money. Also, top class spa. Highly recommended.
"Very Rude & Unhelpful"
I found the staff here very rude & very unhelpful -especially the reception staff. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. There are plenty of "luxury" villa style apartments in Phuket that offer better location, price and genuine hospitality. This resort is on the side of a hill where cars can't drive up to your room when it's raining. Terrible!
