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...

We just stay in front villas and it was a nightmare - it was impossible to enjoy there time on terrace because there was kids all over scrimping and jumping. It's a nice place but not a relaxing or romantic place, because it's just like a Sun Wing Club. Even in restaurant you have kids running around and play al... More

This is the kind of place you would like to keep secret, just for you and your close friends. First the destination is still quite unknown, but this is probably one of the nicest and longest white sand beach in Thailand. If you add the originality and simplicity of the design the surprising quality of the cuisine the genuine friendliness... More

I found Aava when I was looking for somewhere quiet and secluded to write my books. I did not want the big resort experience but rather something more secluded, boutique, an authentic experience, right on the beach… Aava is a rare treasure when it comes to staying in paradise. From the pristine beaches, the beautiful sunrises, the natural beauty everywhere... More

This resort locates in an area called Kanom. The beach in this area is quiet so you can relax without getting disturbed by a group of tourists like other popular areas on Samui Island. We chose to stay here because the pictures look wonderful on the resort web site. Also, this property claims that it is a 5 stars resort... More

Dear Lollipops26, Thank you for your time and effort to review Aava Resort & Spa. We are truly sorry to read that your holiday experience at Aava was not what you and your family hoped for. Aava Resort & Spa is small boutique style hotel and for that reason much different from big chain hotels to which you compare us.... More
