“A slice of paradise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

My boyfriend and I stayed here just 2 nights before going to Phi Phi and we wished we had longer! From the moment we arrived the staff were so helpful, friendly, attentive and really went the extra mile, they gave a personal service like no other. I really enjoyed staying on the boutique resort, sometimes in big hotels you feel like just a number but here you were made to feel special. The rooms where modern, fresh, clean, the outdoor bathroom/shower was uniquely designed, they had thought of everything right down to a beach bag and flip flops for you to use during your stay. The beach is kept clean with stunning views, beanbags rather than loungers which were really comfy.

NOTE: There is currently construction going on as they are building additional bungalows and have just finished a new Italian restaurant, it can be noisy but we only really noticed this when we ate at the Italian, the resort obviously realised this and offered every guest 20% discount to eat there! We ate at the Italian on our second night and the food was excellent.

Please do not be discouraged from going to this resort by the reviews of the construction noise, we stayed in 6 different hotels during our 2 week trip over Thailand/Singapore and this was the best service and hotel stay of our trip, in fact after visiting here we kept comparing everywhere we stayed next to Tubkaak! We can't wait to visit when the resort has finished construction :)

The Tubkaak is an amazing resort. Quiet, with a beautiful beach, incredible sunsets, it is a pure bliss. We went twice already, the last time being December 2012 / January 2013. The rooms were charming, spacious and comfortable, the staff extremely caring and professional, the food perfect, the view unbelievable and the beach great (with no signs of pollution, which is a concern in Krabi). The management of the resort made lots of efforts to provide the guests with an unforgettable New Year's Eve, with a delicious dinner, nice music, flying lanterns, fireworks, and even a show... We hope to be able to go back there soon.

Krabi, Thailand is my most memorable travel experience and the Tubkaak Boutique Resort has a lot to do with this. The resort is absolutely beautiful and the staff were very friendly and pleasant. We stayed in the honeymoon suite and it was well worth breaking the bank for a newlywed couple. Everything about Tubkaak is wonderful and I would absolutely love to stay there again someday.

Room Tip: The honeymoon suite! Doesn't matter if you're not honeymooning :)

Tubkaak is affordable luxury.
For the price (we paid around US$200 per night) the facilities and rooms are excellent. Despite there being a lot of rooms in a small space, each one feels private and is quiet. The interiors are modern Thai in style, clean, spacious with a relaxed, fresh feel.

The resort overlooks a lovely beach with plenty of activities for energetic guests.

Service was generally good, although English language skills were not great in critical facilities such as the bar! Some brushing up could be done here.

The food selection was also good, the usual Thai tourist offerings, but well presented and priced.

If you want a short break away with nice facilities, a reasonable price tag and plenty of relaxation, you can't go wrong here.

Anyone visiting The Tubkaak Karbi Boutique Resort should be able to switch off from busy life.

Room is clean, comfortable, and has almost everything such as Nespresso machine.
Bring your favourite books, sit by balcony, or by the sea.

One of the best feature would be bath tub. It's excellent, enjoyed. if it's good for me it maybe good for you. Stone earthy Bath Tub. Good size for 2 people.

Thanks to complimentary fruits, very nice.


Thai massage is about 3 times higher than outside the resort. Still very good price.

Breakfast is good, not that impressive. Probably better than outside.

Communication may be just little issue with staff. but they are nice people.

Wifi maybe not that good when walking and talking on the iphone around the resort. but it's free wifi.

Room door maybe too classic, so for some people hate it.


I would like to make sometime and stay again for couple nights.

Room Tip: Room next to pool might be noisy. Room close to beach might be nice.

This place provided the MOST relaxing vacation we've ever had. The remote location is ideal to get away from 'tourist' and the concerns of the world. All the staff are friendly & very attentive to your needs. The facilities are naturally beautiful in the 'jungle' & meticulously clean. It's better than the pictures. Even though we were there in 'rainy' season, boat trips to Hong & Phi Phi islands were fantastic. The ever changing view of the sea was breath-taking...just to relax on the beach or at the gourmet restaurant-for the huge breakfast buffet or their great Thai dinners, was the best!! Sure you could get cheaper food elsewhere, but the quality is worth it here.The spa was superb, we had Thai and oil massages. The only thing we did not like, was the eve a shuttle took us to Ao Nang tourist strip-it had many husslers trying to get you into the stores or restaurants- we couldn't wait to go back to Tubkaak. Some have complained about the construction- it was only during the day, we could hear it by the pool, but it didn't bother us and we could not hear it in our room, on the beach or at the restaurant. If you are blessed to visit this part of the world, make this a destination must! PS. The 'outdoor' shower & tub add awesome romance!

Room Tip: We liked the 'deluxe' upper level room with a beautiful balcony.

We've chosen this hotel after reading some reviews. What can I say - there was nothing we could complain about. A wonderfully situated in a rainforrest with a private beach and a view on uncountable islands. The staff is superb, helping with tips and making even a rainy day beautiful. In the end we've prolonged our stay - all in all a paradise-like place.
