Imagine the beaches of Thailand 20 years ago, with endless stretches of empty golden sand, swaying palm trees and only a handful of local fishermen with whom to share that beach. Imagine staying at the only hotel for miles with a sense of utter seclusion. Imagine all this and you are starting to picture what the Aava Resort & Spa is all about.
Not actually Chumphon but located in Khanom to the south with excellent access to Surat Thani Airport, the fast ferries to Koh Samui, Koh Pha Ngan & Koh Tao, and a surprisingly short drive across the mainland to Krabi, Phuket or Khao Lak. To be honest it is hard to image a location with access to so many other main destinations.
Add to all of this, the stunning design, exceptional cuisine, the friendliest staff and quite possibly the most comfortable beds imaginable and the Aava Resort & Spa becomes one of those ‘must stay’ hotels.
