Aava Resort & Spa is a Scandinavian-owned luxury boutique hotel in the small fishing town of Khanom, on the mainland in south-east Thailand. The hotel has a dreamy setting: a 9km stretch of unspoilt beaches, complete with a clear blue sea and surrounded by coconut palm trees, lush green landscapes and limestone mountains.

This stunning Chic Retreat combines traditional Thai friendliness and family values with Scandinavian quality and elegance. It is ideal for families (friendly and trained babysitters are available throughout the day and evening), as well as couples searching for a romantic getaway.

Expect peace, quiet and gorgeous scenery.


Spend days relaxing on the gorgeous, untouched Nadan beach, reading a book, strolling along the sand and taking a dip in the sea to cool off. If you can tear yourself away, it's worth taking a boat out to try and spot rare pink dolphins, for which Khanom is known for.

The hotel also offers an infinity pool, where you can cool off after a long day. By the poolside, you can enjoy meals and snacks from the pool menu, as well as lovely cocktails from the pool bar. 

Back at luxury Thai hotel Aava Resort & Spa, pamper yourself at the spa where the treatments range from a Thai massage to a Tamarind salt scrub. Various wellness activities are also available, including Yoga, Thai boxing and meditation. 

While you relax in style, your children will be having an equally enjoyable holiday in the care of trained babysitters, who are sure to keep them entertained.


For romantic fine dining, eat at Aalto, which specialises in fusion Asian and European food and was a winner at the World Luxury Restaurant Awards 2016. Here you can enjoy unusual and exciting flavours while sitting on the beach and admiring the beautiful sea views. Wellness is central to the ethos of Aalto, and so a healthy menu is also available.

If you'd prefer something more casual, Aava Pizzeria & Bakery is a charming roadside restaurant, where the pizzas are made in traditional wood fired ovens. They also serve freshly baked bread and tasty pastries. 

The hotel also offers cookery classes, where you can try your hand at whizzing up your own delicious creations. Choose from a range of Thai recipes, and learn how to source ingredients from the local markets, and then prepare these lavish dishes. After all your hard work, you can tuck into your finished masterpiece by the beach.
