The Tubkaak Krabi Boutique Resort
Ranked #2 of 12 Hotels in Nong Thale
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 August 2014

We love TubKaak - wonderful customer service, beautiful setting, superb food, gorgeous rooms, and perfect for a long beach vacation. We recommend the rooms that have a sea view or the outdoor bath - really lovely. If you are looking for a private, relaxed vacation - I recommend against the day tours to the nearby islands - the tour is very nice, but the locations themselves are usually packed with tourists visiting on large package tours or from other hotels. Although the sites are beautiful, the crowds make it less than worth it if your goal is solitude.

Location is very nice and the whole premises is very well designed.

The terrace of our was room is directly overlooking the beach through the palm trees.

The owners are building / expanding, but no inconvenience whatsoever. The building area is fenced in.

Breakfast and dinner were fine as well; the view from the dining overlooking the sea: beautiful

Room Tip: We had booked two rooms at the sea side, one more luxe than the other one. When arriving we preferr...

Went in low season for a weekend getaway from Singapore and absolutely loved this property. Would happily repeat one or more times. The overall feel is true boutique luxury but in a slightly understated way - whoever decorated it has great taste. The food at the restaurants was one of the highlights, you can eat there every meal and not get tired, because of the food, the service and the setting. The beach is secluded and very pretty. I can't think of even one thing to complain about. Ok a tiny one: the rooms have TV, but are no TV channels. They do have a decent selection of Hollywood DVDs at reception, which are of course pirate, so we had a bit of trouble finishing our movie. However, this is only relevant if you're a TV addict, and come on, you are at such beautiful place that who cares about TV!

I think it definitely makes sense to book your own car at the airport, because for a few days stay it can cost the same that the airport transfer. However, the hotel is not so far away from places such as Ao Nang or even Krabi if you want to explore (although frankly, Ao Nang has NOTHING going for it other than a row of your typical cloned tourist trinkets stalls).

Overall, the standards are very high and would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone. Keep it up Tubkaak.

Room Tip: Stay around the pool

Located along the Tubkaak Beach, this resort takes care of every aspect of a quality beach resort. It is a small resort of 53 rooms with another wing that is currently in construction. Not surprising that it won an award last year, it is really as what the reviewers said.

The rooms are built sensibly, and I would recommend taking the superior rooms on the ground floor as they offer direct access to the swimming pool. It is not the most child friendly resort but my 19 month old toddler had fun with the simple but sufficient facilities. There is a gym with modern equipment. There is an elliptical machine, two treadmills and a cycling machine. There are simple free weights and a weights machine. Facility if air-conditioned and water and towels are offered.

Rooms are fitted with sufficient power sockets, although international travellers would need to bring an adapter if you have many electronic items to charge. A tip to bring an extension adapter so that you can plug in at the same place. There is a built in table that allows you to put on your make up, write a journal, or use your laptop. There is free wifi in the room, in fact the free wifi is available throughout the resort. There is no real need to get a 3G card unless you really need it. But then again, getting a 3G sim card at the airport is not too expensive, so a 4 day connection, it is only 250 baht.

The resort has a simple pool that allows residents to dip and relax, there is a jacuzzi function, and ample deck beds for you to sun bathe. Sun tan in mid day and if you prefer a warm dip in the pool, take a swim around 4.30pm onwards. There is an excellent spa for all your massage needs. There are bottle like huts for guests to enjoy their relaxation time. The huts are able to take in two guest at the same time and is great for couples.

The beach facing restaurant offers breath-taking views of the islands, and the Thai foods served by the restaurant was just superb. In fact, the food is much better than some of the restaurants located in Ao Nang, honestly there is no need to go into town, everything that you need is found here. Pricing is not that expensive considering the quality of food served with ambient. We had lunch at Ao Nang in a not so nice restaurant, and considering the food quality and ambient. I would have preferred lunch at the resort itself and skip travelling all the way out into town.

The rooms have an open air bath tub that is both modern and stylish. It is big enough for two persons or with a tiny toddler. Bath foam, Shampoo and Conditioner are provided for and I think it is premium stuff. If the tub is not your style, there is a standing shower just next to the tub. The toilet is separate from the shower area, so you can use the toilet while your family can use the shower.

There is a fridge with drinks inside complimentary. But once you finished the drinks, additional ones will be charged. A nespresso machine is a welcome surprise and very nice. There is a 40 inch (at least) Samsung LCD TV that offers movies, and all your news channels. Not all the channels are represented, but it is sufficient.

Beach towels are provided for with a very nice large basket bag to carry all your stuff. So it is very nice. Housekeeping is done twice a day. So your rooms are neatly tidied every time you return to your room. Each hut have four units, two superior rooms and two deluxe rooms on the second floor. There are other rooms but these are located slightly away from the pool. If you can afford a more premium feel, you can book rooms with a private pool, but these are not very private because guests walking by the front facing of the beach can look into the swimming pools. Of course, the intention is to allow guests to also look out to the beach.

The beach is a private beach, so it doesn't allow touts selling items to come into the hotel premises. The resort is built with a very natural nature theme and there are water ponds everywhere with lotus flowers blooming. These is also a very large Koi pond with hundreds of fishes.

There are two restaurants, an Italian restaurant and a thai styled one which offers more seating and is also more popular. Breakfast buffets are simple, and more than sufficient variety.

Service staffs are very helpful and polite, service vary from staff to staff, some speak a little more english than others. Generally communication is not a problem. There are at least a hundred employees running the resort, so there are no short of help when you need it.

I would strongly recommend this resort. Personally there is no need to go out into Ao Nang or even Krabi. Everything is offered here.

Room Tip: If you want a good room, the superior room located next to the common swimming pool is the best.

This was our second stop in our three stop andaman avdentures holidays. After staying at the Phulay Bay, we were wondering how can we get anything better. Well, we could not find anything better, but we got something different, which also equally fantastic. We stayed in one of their villas, which was very tastefully decorated with tons of natural lighting. we were also thoroughly impressed with their food and breakfasts there were a delight. The staff are sweet and ever ready to help you.
