Avista Hideaway, MGallery by Sofitel

Phuket - Thailand


The Avista Hideaway is a boutique-style hilltop retreat overlooking two beautiful beaches, offering a sanctuary of calm just a short drive from the hedonistic nightlife of Patong.

Choose from an appealing range of accommodation, including suites with luxurious touches such as outdoor Jacuzzis, private pools and rooftop terraces. It’s a great choice for a romantic escape, with a fantastic spa and separate adults-only infinity pool. Service with a smile is guaranteed, and the atmosphere is laid back and friendly.

The location offers the best of both worlds, allowing you to spend your time relaxing at the hotel or partying down in Patong as the mood takes you. You’re also close to some superb beaches and Phuket’s most popular LGBT-friendly bars, clubs and restaurants.

Nearby Attractions

The Avista Hideaway is on the southwest coast of Phuket, perched on a hilltop with great views of Patong Beach and Tri Trang Beach. The hotel operates a complimentary shuttle to Patong, just a 10-minute drive away.

On Patong Beach you can relax on the golden sands or enjoy watersports including parasailing, jetskiing and diving. There are also plenty of restaurants and bars, and the island’s main LGBT nightlife district is just a 5-minute walk from the beach, clustered around the Paradise Hotel.

Closer to the Avista Hideaway is the more peaceful Paradise Beach, a secluded cove where you can snorkel and kayak to your heart’s content. Other attractions on Phuket include the elegant Sino-Portuguese architecture of Phuket Town, a 30-minute drive away.


There are 150 spacious and contemporary rooms and suites, all with a private balcony, LED TV, WiFi, iPod dock, DVD player, safe and tea/coffee making facilities. Treat yourself with an upgrade to one of the luxurious suites and enjoy extra features such as an outdoor Jacuzzi, sun-drenched roof terrace or even your own private pool.

Each of the hotel’s three saltwater infinity pools has a swim-up bar, and the Hillside Pool is strictly adults only. Other facilities include a fitness centre and the soothing Aqua Spa, which offers both indoor and outdoor treatment rooms and specialises in Thai full-body massage.

The al fresco Sizzle restaurant offers a mouthwatering menu of barbecued meats and grilled seafood, while Vista is an international all-day-dining affair. Most guests gravitate towards the Rendez-Vous rooftop bar at sunset, where you can settle in with a cocktail and enjoy the view.

Suite Sensations

All of the rooms at the Avista Hideaway are gorgeous, but we would always recommend splurging on one of the higher end suites if you can, especially if you’re celebrating a special occasion with your other half. The Deluxe Duplex Suites are a popular choice, with an appealing rooftop terrace plus a private outdoor Jacuzzi on the lower level. If you’re really pushing the boat out then opt for an Executive Suite, boasting a private pool, four poster bed, butler service, outdoor rain shower and bathtub.
