Khanom Beaches

Recommended Posts

I didn't know that Khanom existed until 3 years ago :D

It was love at first sight :)

In December a new Scandinavian owned 5 star resort opens with a Scandianvian restaurant and bakery.

They also serves genuine pizza from wood fired oven!

You can see their website here: Aava Resort

And here is a few photos attached.

A paradise where swaying coconut palms, lush green landscape, limestone mountains and virtually untouched beaches still remain in their natural beauty.

Then someone decides to build a monstrosity of an eye-sore right on the beach. :)

Great beaches and natural beauty. A paradise.

But what is the local infrustructure like?

Are there any hospitals nearby that may save your life if you have a dire medical emergency?

Are there transport connections such as airports with flights to major centres?

Are there government centres such as immigration? What are internet and tv conections like?

Entertainment for expats?

Large shopping centres, etc, somewhere to buy sandfly repellant?

I find this Scandinavian design very beautiful. It fitts well into the surroundings...but each to his own taste :D

But what is the local infrustructure like? Very little ...good roads and easy access to airports and shopping.....

Are there any hospitals nearby that may save your life if you have a dire medical emergency? Surat Thani or Nakhon Sri Thammarat!!...The hospital in Sichon is quite modern, we use it when my son is sick....

Are there transport connections such as airports with flights to major centres? Surat - BKK or Nakhon - BKK....Nok Air, Air Asia, Thai Airways and One-Two Go Thai Orient has daily flights to and from NST and Surat Thani....International flights also from Krabi and Koh Samui....

Are there government centres such as immigration? What are internet and tv conections like? Immigration will be Surat ot nakhon, TV and internet not a problem......Immigration if you live in Khanom is NST. 1 hours drive from Khanom.... UBC Satellite works just fine here! 3 Internet providers: TT&T (Triple T), TOT and CAT....

Entertainment for expats? TV and internet....1 hours drive from a golf course....Sipping Coconut Juice under a palm tree....Monthly Ample Moon Party on the beach with live music.....fishing from the piers and cliffs are excellent....canoe....kayak....snorkeling......diving.....beach golf.....(yup....you can play golf at the beach when at times one of the bays north of Khanom drains comletly for water.....).....rent a boat and watch the pink dolhins....these are very rare and you only find them in the wild here in Khanom and in the Brazilian Amazone River....!....just to mention a few things :-).....

Large shopping centres, etc, somewhere to buy sandfly repellant? Tesco or Big C in Surat Thani.....dunno about sandfly repellant, never seen a sandfly here in Khanom :-)....But NST has all the huge shopping arcades like Robinson, Carrefour, Big C, Tesco......the nearest Tesco shopping is in Tha Sala on the way to NST .....

outside20> There is only 1 resort for sale in Khanom.... and this only because the developer of this resort constructed the resort as an investment, not because he wanted to work as a resort owner....it was contructed to be sold.... Price 120 million THB, or if you finish the contruction yourself, you can have it for 90 million THB.... if you can find other resorts or hotels in Khanom for sale, then I give you a free beer! :D:)

The charm of Khanom is the virginity, the unspoiled state. If that is gone, the charm is gone, too. If you want to develop that place, you rather better start from there, than copying XXX Moon Parties.

The people, who choose Khanom for their holidaying do that certainly not for Pizza, but for unspoiled beach, sun and seafood.

And where's that ? Any link/photos ? :)

Baht 30 Million to finish is quite a bit of money but depends how far the resort is built, how many rooms/bungalows/swimming pools etc.

I'm curious.

You can find this resort for sale here:

Resort For Sale

The resort will contain 8 bungalows with 1 shared swimming pool in the center plus three pool villas with 5 bedrooms.

Totally 23 rooms.

There is also a beach bar and a large office which also contains a small cafe.

The resort is almost complete and it is already in business with all rooms booked for the Peak Season.

The construction of the two remaining villas are on progress.

Agree that 30 million to complete these two remaining villas is somewhat expensive, and that's also why I recommend a potential purchaser to go for the 90 million option. The owner, who is also the contractor, asks for 30 million extra to complete, but as I am a contractor too, I can offer to complete the two remaining villas for much less....in the same genuine top quality! I can do this for 15 million THB. So the total price will be 105 million THB.

Also please note that there is a 100 meter beach, so all villas and the bungalows are all beachfront!

The total size of the land is 6 rai / 9,600 square meter, so there is plenty of space in the rear to construct more villas, bungalows and even a condo complex!
