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.”

We Care

 

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 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 are gently convincing the local authorities to share the concern and be more active on beach cleaning, recycling, and education. Aava Resort & Spa is also taking the lead to set up a Trash Hero branch in Khanom and support activities to provide environmental education in Khanom’s schools.

We returned from Koh Jum Beach villas two weeks ago now and are still dreaming of being there! Thank you so much for organising our holiday and for answering our endless questions.

Un énorme merci pour l’organisation du voyage. Excellent travail. Tout était parfait: sélection des hôtels, navettes, horaires .. Un petit plus le transfert en jonque entre The Jahan et The Island Lodge! Excellent travail de préparation de votre part. Continuez comme ca.

Review for Kumai

Everything about your company and my cruise was fantastic and the food and kindness of the crew was just unreal.. thank you for offering such a wondrous experience and if you sell those brown Wow Borneo t-shirts the staff was wearing I’d love to buy one and advertise for you in California! I’m going to show all my pics and tell about the trip to all my students ( I’m a high school teacher) and I hope some will be as fortunate as I to take a trip with you. Again, thank you for an unbelievable 4 days.

“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.
