Rooms

The fresh, unique style of Aava Resort & Spa is apparent in the design and décor of the bungalows and villas, as the Scandinavian owners have certainly brought their love of contemporary, clean lines to the design of this hip, welcoming resort. There are 8 deluxe bungalows, 10 superior bungalows and 6 poolside villas. There are also 4 family villas, which are suitable for a family of up to five members or alternatively, select two Deluxe Bungalows, with interconnecting doors. Smaller families can benefit from the complimentary extra bed which can be placed in all room categories for a child aged up to 12.  


Deluxe Bungalow

They have spacious en-suite bathrooms and a front terrace.  A complimentary extra bed can be added for a child under the age of 12 AND a cot can also be added for little ones aged under 2, without charge, although space would be tight in this room type so our recommendation would be to have an extra bed OR a cot, selecting a higher room type if you are a family of four. However, a cot and an extra child's bed are indeed possible within this room type. Interconnecting rooms are also available. The bathroom has a shower but not a bath tub.
