After only 25 minutes on a good road , since we have left the ferry at Donsak, we arrived at Aava Resort. Signposts were clear all the way there. Despite the rain, all the staff we encountered at reception and on our way to our villa, were extremely friendly, helpful and spoke very good English. Our pool villa was very...

We enjoyed a great week at the Aava hotel. The hotel was modern with classic european details and some thai features. The room was a good size, clean and very comfortable. A separate toilet and shower area was also a good size and felt in keeping. When we were there the hotel was very quiet indeed, maybe only 7-8 other...

Khanom has one of the calmest beaches and you get a beautiful, unobstructed view of the sunrise. However for the price paid for the villa, I found the amenities lacking and the rooms in need of a refurbishment. Having stayed at a luxury resort just before arriving to Aava, where I paid less for the rooms, made for a stark...

This resort/spa is a long drive from Surat thani but worth the long drive if you are staying longer in this resort. The rooms are spacious and modern style. Good bed and clean linen. The room are clean and cozy. Wifi is working fine and breakfast is great at well. The water is calm by the beach. A recommended place...

The food was the best that I've had at any resort restaurant. It was creative, had excellent flavor, and it was cooked perfectly. The beach is gorgeous and I enjoyed my walks along the shoreline. It's clean, quiet, and except for a few dogs just about perfect. (Note: I'm pretty wary of dogs that I don't know.) The rooms are...

We had the wedding there on 13th August 2016 and been staying for 4 days 3 nights. The place is lovely and if you prefer somewhere private, quiet, and peaceful, this is the place for you. It is the small property with private beach, luxurious but simple, and comfortable in the same time. The room was very clean and the...

The Aava Resort & Spa is a quiet, beautiful stylish hotel with comfortable rooms, a nice beach and with a friendly staff. This is especially true for the staff of the excellent restaurant, where it is very pleasant to sit. The menu offers a nice range of dishes, which are really of high quality. And furthermore: the breakfasts are super!...

We stayed for one week, and loved our stay! The resort was nice, and the poolside villa as well. We had booked a superior villa, but we got an upgrade when our barhroom ceiling was leeking during the rain. The staff were OK, but we didn't get as much service as we expected of a so called 5star resort. They...

The location of the resort is isolated and a taxi, scooter or car is required if one wants to see parts of Khanom. This is one of the charms of the hotel. No other hotels and no merchandise sellers on the beach. The hotel has a monopoly position, as there is some distance to other luxury hotels, which means it...
