We stayed at this resort for two nights. Upon arrival the front desk tried to give us a much more expensive room although we new that they have a cheaper one available. The room was clean and nice with all the amminities. The wall to the next door could be some what thicker!!!! The restaurant offers a very good food...

We stayed at Aava Resort for a one week in April. Our family contains 2 adults and 2 kids, so we had booked the Family Villa. Before our trip I had red quite a few mixed reviews about Aava Resort from TripAdvisor, so I actually had no prejudices what so ever. Aava Resort has been built to a picture-like location...

"I had the best experience at Aava Resort, the service and staff were great, the location is stunning, right on the beach. From the time you arrive in the comfortable air conditioned vehicle, the welcome is so friendly on the front desk, everything is taken care of. The food in the restaurant is first class. Overall, a great place to...

If you are staying elsewhere I can really recommend dropping by Aava for breakfast. The spa is simple but lovely. I enjoyed a spa package with a sauna, milk bath, tamarind and sea salt scrub, and a Swedish massage for 3200 bhat and it was totally worth it!

Nice place, fantastic food, nice people. Everything you need to relax, to see real things, real life around, you find there. The beach, Khanom is really fantastic to see the real Thailand culture. The local markets to visit is a must.

I visited Aava Resort & Spa twice and I have to admit that I was really surprised - fantastic boutique hotel with 9km of untouched beach. Peaceful destination, not crowded like Phuket or Koh Samui. Paradise for couples and families! Also Aalto Restaurant's food is great - best in Khanom for sure!

Dear peacockliz, thank you for your comment and happy to hear that you've enjoyed Khanom and would definitely think to return. Aava Resort & Spa is 4 star boutique resort.

The resort is located on a peaceful stretch of Nadan Beach. The staff is very friendly and always helpful. At breakfast the views from the restaurant "Aalto" overlooking the water are peaceful and energizing, just what you need to start a sunny relaxing day at the beach. The menu they serve during breakfast, lunch and dinner gives ample choices between...

Need to put this into what is expected and what is delivered. I think that this hotel thinks that it is punching above it's weight. Had the hotel been advertised as a mid range hotel with a beautiful location I would not have been disappointed. However, and this is where the hotel did not meet expectation, it advertises itself as...
