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 サムイ島
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.
