Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A lovely room right on the beach in a blissfully quiet area. The beach is a fantastic swathe of fine golden sand - perfect for beach walks. The staff were lovely and we enjoyed the day trip out to Koh Samui. There is a great restaurant with a very varied menu and all the food we had was fresh and delicious. Our only issue was the pool - it is not set in the middle of the resort but right on the edge of the beach and there is insufficient space around it - the only sunbeds line up by the beach - not sure how that would work if the resort was full as there simply wouldn't be enough room for everyone.

We stayed in Aava poolside villa for two weeks in the middle of January. What we really appreciated in Aava is that the hotel is not too big, rooms are very comfortable, food is good, everything works well and staff is absolutely amazing. All this makes you feel very welcome and cozy. When hotel is not too big and crowded, you learn to know the hotel staff and other customers, but at the same time you still have your own space. Our poolside villa was very nice with private terrace, big bathroom and comfortable beds. Extra bonus about air conditioner with silent mode for sleeping. Every morning we opened the curtains and woke up watching the sunrise; what a start for a day. Hotel staff is the best! Our special thanks go to Cha Cha, she really is a diamond and you can count on her with everything. Ying; the smiling and the most kind lady at the breakfast, Arm; thank you for very nice conversations and service at the restaurant, Sa; our wonderful and friendly tour guide with pink dolphins and monk island. During your stay we recommend you to rent a scooter and drive around. Roads are good and quiet. Hotel reception will handle the scooter rent for you, just ask. They can also recommend some nice places to visit. Alternatively hotel can arrange short trips with hotel car and chauffeur, with a very reasonable price.

We had a fabulous stay! Lovely room, comfy bed, nice bathroom and the service from all the staff was outstanding. Food at the restaurant was excellent, more expensive than the local restaurants but you are paying for quality. Breakfast was great. One of us is diabetic and controls it by diet and there was plenty of choice available and the staff are happy to adjust things to your requirements. Our only negative would be the lack of shade around the beach and pool area in particular. The pool, including the children's area is in full sun the whole day; more shade definitely needed. Our adult children and small grandson were staying in one of the lovely poolside rooms but again their terrace area was in full sun all day so couldn't be used until the evening. Would we go back? Absolutely! Thanks to everyone for making our stay so great 😃

Khanom is a very nice and quiet place for relaxed holiday with local flavor. We saw also a busier times during New Year. It is still very quiet compared to Koh Samui for example. The weathers are somehow mixed during December. We had cloudy and windy weathers and also sunshine. Temperatures are quite high even during night times. Tourists in Khanom are mainly from Thailand. A scooter is a good way to get around and it is cheap. You can book one from the hotel. Note that there are basicly no taxis in Khanom. Aava has a transport service as well. Aava resort is worth of their good reputation. The best part is the service. It is so friendly and nice. Aava has also their own travel agency and good choise of trips. The prices are quite ok. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The food is excellent but prices are quite high. That is the only negative aspect we can think of. Drinks and wines are not cheap either in Aava. However, you can find very cheap local restaurants nearby. Just look around and experiment. We also recommend visiting local markets specially in Saturday evenings. This was a pleasant holiday and Aava was a major part of it.

Khanom is a quit village, perfect for calming down after a working year and after travelling around in beautiful Thailand. We had 11 nights in a Superior Bungalow, which we will take the next time again, because it provides more privacy. The whole team is vey nice and helpful. Not only if you need some advice. For example: Cha Cha helped us buying herbs before travelling home. She went with us to a small market in Khanom. Here are some reviews complained about long waiting times for food. We had no issues. The waiting time was as usual. And I like it when the breakfast is served a la carte, and it was tasty! Same as the dinner. Overall a very good location if don't look for party every night. It is not Pune or Koh Samui. The weather in November is difficult. We had some days with a lot of rain in this monsoon time, the (free) umbrellas over there were our friends. But perfect for hanging around and reading a lot. We had some days with a lot of sun, when we rented a scooter in the neighbourhoud.

Very welcoming and clean resort. Sadly we had not been informed by our booking agent that December is still the rainy season on the east coast of Thailand but despite the sea lashing at the shore and washing the beach away and the red flag being out for the full 3 nights we were here we did not let this spoil our visit thanks to Aava Resort. The free half day Pink Dolphin trip did go ahead as they had booked us in on the last day we could possibly go to allow the monsoon to pass over - the trip was certainly worth doing and we did see 3 dolphins - 2 adults and a baby. Cha Cha organised a motorcycle hire for us within minutes! The rain stayed away and we had a lovely day out on the bike exploring Khanom. A good way to see the true unspoiled Thailand that tourism has taken over. Food at the Aava was very good and staff were very friendly - Patcha was extremely good. Excellent customer service skills and obviously knows his job very well. Price of drinks and food reasonable. Our room was fresh and clean. Not particularly big room and was rather tucked away in a shaded corner (backing onto a building site - though this didn’t prove to cause us any issues). Would very much recommend this lovely little boutique resort in a unspoiled area of Thailand

Had an wonderful stay in this beautiful resort and beach. The restaurant surprised me with a birthday cake on my birthday despite the fact that I did not inform anyone during check-in. Got to know that the front desk lady notice it and arrange for the surprise. I appreciate her going to the extra mile to make it a memorable experience for me. If I remember correctly, her name is May. Thank you so much.

We stayed at Aava Resort for a few days of relaxation between Bangkok and Elephant Hills. We felt relaxed as soon as we entered reception. All staff spoke good English and were keen to do anything they could to make our stay special. The chalet was lovely, the thai massage was great, and the beach clean and uncrowded. The restaurant were happy to cater for vegan diets and it was amazing to eat overlooking the calm sea. Staff easily organised any trips we wanted to do and provided a taxi service. A highlight of our stay was the dolphin tour on water as still as a lake. After seeing the dolphins we were taken by boat to see some islands and stopped on Monk Island. It was a very special day. Our stay was just perfect!
