“A luxurious relaxing holiday”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

This hotel was listed in our holiday package as part of the accomodation they were offering. After browsing through the pictures and reviews of other travellers, we were quite looking forward to unwinding in the privacy of our one unit bungalow, among the luxurious jungle.

Upon reaching, check-in was smooth. All their bungalows are made of wood, so I love the feel of being in a village, where there is an abundance of squirrels and fruit bats etc. Every room is non-smoking, so you can smoke only out on your balcony. Very beautiful view from our balcony I can say. Smoking while reading your favourite book and having a drink or two in that place is so relaxing I didn't want to go home when it was time for us to check-out.

Going into the room, you will realise there are nets on all your windows being put up to protect you from being bitten by their commando mosquitoes. To be safe we also bought the coil which you just need to burn to ward off the mozzies. Standard items in the rooms were provided and working well, like the lights, tap water, tv, a/c, kettle and hair dryer etc. There were no creaks on the floorboard or walls, no cracks on the roofs, en suite bathroom tiles or bathroom walls. However you can tell that the place has been around for quite some years as though maintenance is so-so, as our balcony roof has got a whole collection of spiders and their own bungalow webs, the airconditioner could not be adjusted correctly so nomatter what temperature you want, it'll get either so dang cold or too hot like a sauna. The fan feature was also spoilt, and the whole a/c looked very dusty like the insides weren't cleaned properly or serviced. The lights indicating the fan and cooling mode were off, so you gotta press the lights real hard before they will light up.

Not many tv channels you can enjoy when the weather gets moody, but doesn't really matter much. We were entitled to daily breakfast, so for the next 3 mornings we ate our hearts out at the 'Green Mango', whwre the buffet breakfast is. Halal food, as confirmed with the concierge and cook, so no need to worry. Food wasn't bad, though I thought it would have been better with more thai food choices instead of western delicacies as we all have it back home.

Staff were very friendly and ready to help as they graciously send you off to your rooms during the first day, explaining to you why some things are done this way and not that.... their level of english is so-so and understandable, which makes it easy for us guests. Nobody was snobbish or arragont/rude to us, including the security guards to the lady who does the room service everyday.

Resort is only a five minutes walk to the beach and mosque, which is on the total opposite side of the shopping area, which is a real big convenience. We realised we saved a whole lot of bhat as we didn't need the tuk tuk to take us places. More shopping that means! What with an ocean mart right by the resort entrance, our needs of medical remedies while my partner was sick were very easily accessible.

If I have to stay here again some day by travel agencies, I wouldn't mind. Not on my own though, cuz I wanna try other resorts as well as there are so many around the area. Wonderful vacation which made me appreciate my time, and the nature, so much more.

Thank you for making our getaway a memorable one :)

We stayed for 5 nights despite the hotel occupancy was not full , all the staff including the security guard really take good care of the guest.

I sincerely would like to express our endless compliments to the reception staff team both at the time of check-in and check-out. They did a great job taking care of the hotel guest.

Congratulations to all Tipa Krabi Resort employee. We will be coming back.

This is our wonderful honeymoon place :) It is actually not too from Au Nang beach and not too busy as on the long beach street. Nice and quiet with all local trees and flowers. We stayed in Teak Bungalow which is such a lovely little wooden house up on the hill and there are golf car service taking you to your Teak Bungalow :) Nice American & Thai breakfast. We have been there twice already! From the 1st time in December 2009 and the 2nd time in May 2012. The best period to go down there is between the middle of November to the end of February because it is not too hot and rainy, nice and clean sea. We truly made a big mistake to go there in May because it is the beginning of the rainy season :( rain rain and rain. The price is reasonable compare to the service and nice location especially for our special occasion like HONEYMOON!

I've stayed at the Tipa Resort 3 times. The location is excellent for the beach, restaurants and shopping.

The deluxe rooms are very nice and comfortable, nice big comfortable bed, lovely shower room. The wooden bungalows are not as nice as the deluxe rooms.

The surrounding areas in the grounds of the hotel are nice and green, the swimming pool is ok. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is ok not the best I've had in Thailand.

Room Tip: Choose the deluxe rather than one of the bungalows.

Awfully friendly staff. The bungalow was bigger than my first apartment and clearly had better garden view. Some might complain about the selection in the buffet breakfast, but we didn't get bored over the 3 nights stay. Can only recommend it!

Room Tip: Go for a bungalow in the font.

We booked a family room/Two-Bedroom Suite via Booking.com and it was suppose to house four adults. The bed in the bedroom was good size (king size) but very hard. However, the extra bed they had put in the living room was very tiny and not suitable for two adults (perhaps two kids). The hotel could not change the bed, they put in a cheap extra bed (type fold away bed).
The pool area was dirty.
In addition, the taxi service via the hotel was poor. We traveled with a toddler and book car with child seat from the hotel. When the taxi came it brought a faulty child seat, and I was very frustrated when we had to leave with the car without proper safety for my child.
