Went for a wedding in October. The rooms were satisfactory and the pool area was nice. I would say the service probably wasn't up to scratch - the receptionists often seemed quite disinterested and there was some confusion around room charges (happily resolved, but probably took a little longer than in should have). The area itself (apart from the building... More

Checked out! Beware this is not the idyllic resort portrayed! 5 star prices and 3 star facility (with a huge building site next door...3m away!) this is such a disappointment. None of the promotional material mention the building site, which is huge and overlooks the whole hotel area and is very noisey and intrusive. The setting is lovely, Khanom is... More

Great location, it seemed to be the only hotel on the beach (at the moment) the beach wasn't crystal clear but it was still nice. The rooms were nice and clean and the food was excellent, each evening they delivered a small dessert and a newsletter regarding the weather the following day which I thought was a lovely touch. A...

Any negative comments by previous reviewers of this resort a unjustified. The Aava Resort is very comfortable, clean and in a great location for a relaxing holiday by a warm sea and pristine sandy beach. All the staff are polite and exceedingly helpful , the rooms are very comfortable and clean and the restaurant provides a wide variety of delicious... More

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon trip and over Christmas - 24th - 27th. We had a superior bungalow which was nice and clean, although like other reviews have stated it is a little tired and the rooms are also a little on the small side which was quite disappointing as the room rate was...

In one line? Must try harder. We read a lot about Khanom and this resort before booking. We had hoped the relatively unspoilt and quieter beaches of Khanom would be better than the well worn tourist escapes of Koh Samui et al. and would be a welcomed escape from the business of Bangkok. The reviews on Aava seem to be... More

This remote area of Surat Thani province is unspoiled. The beach is nice, waves for bodysurfing, few jellyfish, usual Thai rubbish washed up on the beach but area in front of resort very clean. We have a poolside room with direct access to the pool via a ladder. The food is fantastic, great choices of cuisine, all of top quality.... More

After a long day in getting here the least you might expect is a warm greeting. Kate at the front desk couldn't be bothered. She was to busy at her computer. I walked up to check in and she actually rolled her eyes and forced a slight smile and then looked back at her monitor. NO "hello" or "welcome." Coming... More

I wanted to spend few nights somewhere peaceful and beautiful place with some luxury. Aava Resort is the best place for that; long 9 km quiet beach, happy and friendly staff, own pool, best breakfest, big towels, big bed, soft sheets, great spa, easy to get there from Bangkok. I just loved it.

I must say that I am really glad I didn't read what some of the other people had to say about Aava Resort before we booked the trip! We stayed here (in fact, still staying a few more days) for a week and absolutely enjoyed ourselves. Love the modern design, the incredibly friendly people and great food!!! Also loved the... More
