We stayed at Aava for five nights in March 2015 and paid £120/night for a superior room. We booked through Mr&Mrs Smith and we’re provided with chocolates, fruit and a bottle of wine upon arrival, as well as free airport transfers, which were all nice touches. I’d agree with most of the criticisms in other reviews. The hotel isn’t a... More

Aava Resort & Spa, oh my! I thought that I would never visit same location twice, not to mention three times or so. And yet again here we were, spending our luxury time at Khanom. And here is the punchline, it was our fifth time and you know it starts to feel like this is our home here in Thailand.... More

All I say about Aava Resort & Spa Hotel is a lovely property in unusual destination of Khanom. The low rise bungalow type resort with immediate access to the sea is an attractive property. We did not stay at the property but simply did an inspection tour. Our understanding is that majority of their guests are from Scandinavian countries. The... More

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
