We read good things about this place and were eager to stay there for our vacation. Reception was friendly and we were given a choice of two rooms. Rooms, or rather cabins are very close to each other. When the curtain is not closed it feels like you are in a showcase, specially in the evening. Room is smallish with... More

we have just returned from a week here at the end of a Thailand holiday. We asked if we could have a quiet room and were put in a room opposite the reception, room 19. Superior room. It was as promised quiet. The whole hotel actually was quiet and I believe full. There were children staying but they were both... More

We live on Koh Samui and were looking for a nice weekend break off the island with our two young kids. Khanom is only a 30 minute drive from the ferry pier and the Aava Resort fitted the bill perfectly. We booked two connecting Deluxe rooms, but on arrival found a Pool Villa was available and opted for that. Were... More

We booked this resort as part of a package through Secret Escapes, and we had such an amazing time. We were very pleased with the resort on arrival, as soon as we walked into reception we were welcomed warmly and straight away we were captured by its beauty. Check in was a speedy process and we were given a welcome... More

The hotel was not so big and really close to the beach. You can walk to the beach for not more than 50 meters if you stay in pool side villa. The pool was a bit small. I got a room opposite to the lobby, so in the afternoon it's a bit hot due to the sun direction. But who... More

We stayed at Aava resort for eleven days and really enjoyed our time there. Chukka, the wellness coach, was the highlight of our trip. He is a fantastic teacher, very patient and knowledgeable. He understands his clients needs well and adapts classes accordingly - we particularly enjoyed the pilates and stretch classes. The food was very good (coconut water and... More

The Aava is a great place to stay. We stayed in the pool villa which gave us private access to the pool from our room. The service was excellent and the staff were friendly and professional. If you have been to Thailand before and are after something different the Aava is ideal because it's like Thailand was 20 years ago,... More

We came to Khanom and Aava after some research. We travel to Thailand regularly and have stayed in many parts of the country, but most often on Koh Samui. This time we were looking for somewhere much less touristy and untouched and this is what we found in Khanom. Our overall impression of Aava was very good. It is a... More

...they gave the hotel a good make-over, reduced the prices and served fresh milk in the restaurant. I live in Bangkok and stayed here with family visiting from the UK. They were very happy with the hotel, friendly staff, clean beach, calm seas to swim in. I felt let down by the signs of wear and tear everywhere. The price... More

I came to aava to have a peaceful and relaxing last night in the south before I head back to the rainy north. While the rooms are beautiful and clean (minus a toilet leak) the pillows Devine and the architecture tranquil, the fact you can hear every little pin drop, step, television or moan from outside and the other bungalows...
