Aava Resort & Spa

Khanom | First Class

Aava Resort is tucked away on a pristine 9km stretch of white sand beach in the small fishing town of Khanom, on Thailand’s south east coast. Despite its considerable beauty – deserted beaches, hidden waterfalls and mangrove forest - it’s an area that has remained largely off the radar and is a world away from the bright lights and busy beachfronts of the country’s main tourist resorts.

Owned by a Finnish couple, there’s a distinct Scandinavian influence throughout the property: from the slick, minimalist style décor, to the traditional Finnish sauna; the fresh pastries offered in the bakery and the Euro-Fusion menu served in the beachside restaurant.

The rooms themselves are spacious and un-cluttered; the design is dominated by clean lines and dark wood furnishings. We particularly like the Poolside Villas that offer direct access into the main swimming pool and boast a view of the sea from the bathtub. For those travelling with children, the two bedroom Family Villas are perfect. On the subject of families, Aava is particularly child friendly: younger guests are kept entertained at the supervised kids club, they will love the wood fire oven pizzas served at the Pizzeria & Bakery, and babysitting is complimentary, leaving parents time to make the most of the spa!

Away from the spa and that stunning beach, days can be spent exploring the nearby Khao Luang National Park or out in a longtail boat spotting the rare pink dolphins that have made this region their home.
