Avista Hideaway Sofitel - A Relaxation Resort That Our Family Enjoy

Avista Hideaway Sofitel is a 5 star resort located at the top of the hill. While being inaccessible by foot, there is a shuttle bus which will take about 10 minutes to the busy life of Patong. In fact, I like the inaccessible part which means lesser noise and crowd which translates into proper relaxation and holiday.

We arrived at about noon when we checked in and the room wasn't quite ready, so the receptionist told us to explore the area and go for our lunch before they bring our luggage back into the room.

We were also given a welcome drink and fruits to commence our stay in the resort.

The premises are huge, and the views were magnificent from the top. The weather was sunny but windy. For a moment, we never thought that we were in Phuket.

Big O starting to do his weird poses.

We went past the gym area beside one of the many pools, and again it was huge. Unfortunately, we didn't really get a chance for a workout when we already have two boys with us.

This is one of the exclusive pool for adult only, no kids which means we have to stay out.

Kid's Club

They have a Kid's Club which was rather deserted because I suppose not many families with kids come to this resort. This place caters more to honeymooners or instagrammers and it is not difficult to see why. In the end, we have the kid's club all by ourselves and we spent an hour inside.

Both Big and Small O playing their hearts out.

There's always time to rest!

Resuming to play again...

Kid's club all by ourselves...

Superior Room

Room was a decent size with classic Arab design and bath tub in the bathroom and a nice balcony to enjoy the view.

We also had the superior room with a double queen bed which I managed to find a deal online for SGD250 a night inclusive of breakfast which I thought was a steal. The original price was amost double.

Look at the picturistique view you wake up every morning greeted by that.

Activities Room

The resort also boasts a few activities such as the virtual golf arena, billiard as well as table tennis.

They aren't utilized as much by patrons as much as the majestic swimming pool so we had all by ourselves again :)

Swimming Pool

The pool is the main highlights of the resort and is usually our main target to hit when we stayed at the resort.

There are a couple of pools by the resort. They have the adults only hillside pool, hillview pool as well as the main pool overlooking the entire mountain and forest.

The view is simply breathtaking and is a genuine contender for an instagram photo.

We had a memorable stay at the resort and this is one that caters to both to the doving loving couple as well as families.

You dont get plenty of the activities that you get at Patong but there is a shuttle bus which can take you to all that action which runs almost every hour.
