Hand-Picked Hotel

Stylish and peaceful beach resort on Thailand’s uncrowded southeast coast.

If you’re searching for a slice of local life on Thailand’s southeast coast, the Aava Resort & Spa could be just the place. This beachside boutique hotel blends elegant architecture with Thai charm to create a peaceful retreat away from the busy tourist areas.

The resort is situated along the nine-kilometre-long Na Dan Beach and close to the Buddhist temples of Khanom, so it’s a good base to explore the highlights of the local area. Onsite, there’s a peaceful infinity pool, a spa offering a range of treatments along with daily yoga and meditation classes, and the chance to see pink dolphins, just offshore.

As for dining? Euro-Asian dishes are the speciality at Aalto, while freshly baked buns and wood-fired pizzas tempt the tastebuds at the hotel’s bakery and pizzeria.

Local Area

Lots of travellers head to Surat Thani province with plans to take the ferry to Koh Samui, but there’s a lot to be said for exploring further along Thailand’s southeast coast. This is where you’ll find the traditional seaside town of Khanom, situated around 30 minutes’ drive from the Donsak Raja Ferry Port.

It’s the perfect place to enjoy local life without the hassle of too many tourists and overpriced souvenir shops. Here, you’ll find the golden sands of Na Dan Beach, Khanom Beach and Kho Khao Beach overlooking the calm shores of the Gulf of Thailand.

Tropical palm and pine trees sit alongside gently bobbing fishing boats and pods of pink dolphins appearing above the ocean waves. Explore inland and you can take a dip in the Samet Chun Waterfall or visit Namtok Si Khit National Park for even more swimming spots, as well as hiking trails through teak and pine forests.
