Mr Atte Savisalo
Your Host & The Team
“In 2008, Khanom and its natural beauty made us fall in love at first sight, so we decided to move here and build a resort. We also wanted to bring something from our culture. The result is our small and unique Scandinavian influenced tropical resort. Nadan is the most beautiful beach in Thailand, where you can enjoy the most amazing sunrises, sunset cocktails, and dinner under the stars. Khanom is a place to truly relax without annoying beach vendors and noisy jet skis. We hope you have a chance to visit before it is discovered by tourist masses.”
Welcome to Samui – Surat Thani
Discover the gateway to Thailand’s most popular island archipelago staying in Koh Samui Resorts selected by Secret Retreats and enjoy some of the best places to stay in Surat Thani. The southern Surat Thani province fringes the Gulf of Thailand and is your entry point to the stunning island destination of Koh Samui along with its smaller, but no less tantalising cousins, Koh Pha Ngan and Koh Tao. And what better way to enjoy this beautiful region of Thailand than from the comfort of your Koh Samui boutique hotel.
Nestled in the Gulf of Thailand and once a haven for fishermen, Koh Samui is Thailand’s third-largest island. Nature abounds on what’s known as the “Coconut Island” thanks to the island’s rich interior of dense coconut plantations. Here, life is laden with white sandy beaches, crystal blue waters, lush green vegetation, warm and friendly people, and myriad tropical attractions and activities to fill your holiday. Let the Secret Retreats Concierge help you choose from the many Koh Samui hotels and resorts to ensure the Koh Samui boutique hotel you select is the best place to stay in Koh Samui for your holiday.
Year after year, Koh Samui remains one of Thailand’s top tourist destinations, drawing in travellers from across the globe to its award-winning beaches, amenities and picture-perfect views. An excellent spot for the first-time traveller, this well-developed island offers world-class amenities and ease of navigation, but it’s the island’s many cultural and natural offerings also tempt the more seasoned traveller to explore even more.
The resort’s main goal is to make Khanom the first truly sustainable beach destination in Thailand. The resort has already been free of single use plastics for a couple of years, and for every full bag of garbage collected from the beach, they will offer a free beer or soft drink. The owners are actively working on getting all of the private sector operators in the tourism industry, as well as the public sector local authorities and schools to commit to actions that will lead to a more sustainable environment. For example, they are trying to get all of the companies in the Khanom Tourism Association to give up single use plastics, and play an active role in beach cleaning activities. They also would like the local authorities to take action on beach cleaning, recycling, and education.
In April 2019, together with the Finnish Embassy, Finland’s National Research and Development Centre, WWF and various private companies that are creating solutions for reducing plastic waste, the resort hosted a Sustainable Solutions for Plastic Litter seminar. The aim is to get the Thai Ministries of Environment and Tourism to support a pilot project to create solutions that will make Khanom the first sustainable destination in Thailand. Aava Resort & Spa is also taking the lead to set up a Trash Hero branch in Khanom, and working on trying to get WWF to provide environmental education in Khanom’s schools.
“Be it to simply relax with family/friends, or a destination to host an intimate dream wedding, this sleek Scandinavian design 28-room boutique hotel is located on one of the most natural and quiet white sand beaches in Thailand - Khanom.”
Kim, the discoverer.
