Avista Phuket makes a splashing debut

A new luxury resort joins Asia’s most desirable island paradise

Avista Resort and Spa, Kata Phuket, the newest property on the shores of southern Thailand’s world famous resort island, opened its doors in early November and is already leaving lasting impressions on its first group of guests. With bookings coming through from the very instant the hotel went online, tourists from all corners of globe have already been given a spectacular taste of this contemporary tropical resort.

While the world’s tourism industry might have taken a step back during this global recession, the crowded streets and fully-booked hotels of Phuket prove that Thailand’s largest island is doing just fine. As the calendar moves towards the end of 2009 and the busiest holiday season of the year, travelers will have a brand new accommodation option at this ground-breaking new property.

Avista Resort and Spa Phuket is the first of what will soon become Thailand’s most exciting and dynamic chain of luxury resorts, which prides itself on welcoming all visitors with the Land of Smile’s globally renowned warm hospitality.

Situated on a hillside, Avista Resort and Spa Phuket, as it name suggests, offers an unrivalled, panoramic view of the crystal clear emerald waters of the stunning Andaman Sea.

Designed purely with every need of the holidaymaker in mind, the 143-unit Avista Resort and Spa Phuket puts every emphasis on making visitors feel at home. The resort features creative elements and facilities to best accommodate the guests. Rooms feature innovative touch panels that allow you to have the entire room under your complete control from the comfort of your bed. In-room entertainment is unrivalled, with massive LCD flat screens featuring dozens of satellite channels from all over the planet as well as various outlets and USB sockets which allow guests to plug and play their own choice of programming. You can also easily stay connected with your friends and family back home with in-room high-speed broadband internet.

For that extra special occasion, the exclusive Kata and Karon suite rooms overlook the entire property and feature unimpeded views of the ocean. This is simply the ultimate answer in luxury for guests wanting to be spoiled, with a spacious living area as well as an indoor Jacuzzi right at the edge of your king-sized bed.

Most units have a clear view of the ocean as well as the hotel’s swimming pool, which is surrounded in a lush tropical setting and features a cool and refreshing waterfall. Situated at the centre of the property, the pool area doubles as a stage area for entertainment at sunset daily ranging from traditional Thai shows, Latin dances, and musical performances which will take place as the sun fades and the moon rises every single evening.

A visit to Thailand would be utterly incomplete without sampling some of the most delicious food in the world. En Vogue, Avista’s signature restaurant, offers guests a breath-taking gastronomic journey into both Thai and international cuisines with new spins on classic local and foreign dishes that will thrill every palette. The endless selection of new world wines from En Vogue’s very own wine lounge will also definitely excite the travelling connoisseur. For a cool relaxing end to a long day, the signature cocktails of the poolside bar are waiting to quench your thirst with happy hours every evening.

There’s no reason not to stay healthy during your relaxing vacation with the resort’s trademark Morrocan and Thai inspired spa located near the main pool featuring an extensive list of treatments to ease all your aches and pains. A glass-encased fitness centre also sits right on the edge of the pool with all the equipment necessary to ensure you keep fit and firm during your stay.

Business travelers will find everything they need at Avista as well, with two cutting edge conference rooms outfitted with modern equipment for presentations, as well as a cinema-style theatre hall.

The resort is just minutes away from the serene, powder-white sands of Kata, one of Phuket island’s more peaceful beaches, where guests can soak up the sun or go for a refreshing swim off this beautiful shore line. The friendly town of Kata is home to endearing locals, charming shops, and restaurants serving mouthwatering, freshly-caught seafood.

While Kata beach is the ideal locale for guests to relax and leave the worries of the chaotic world behind, there’s always a time for some fun and excitement. Though visitors can rest unimpeded and bask in the infinite tranquility of Avista Phuket, a drastic change of pace can be had with ease with just a short, ten-minute drive up the winding coast to the popular and vibrant Patong beach.

During this special introductory period, Avista Resort and Spa Phuket is offering a promotional rate until the 21 of December 2009.
