The setting for this simple but beautiful resort is superb. The wooden bungalows range from very simple to beachfront deluxe and there is a lovely laid back feel. Access to the hotel is by speedboat and it's perfect for a get a way from it all break. You can walk to the next beach where there are some other resorts... More

Simple, clean and relaxing. The rooms are okay with little frills. staff are polite and helpful. The restaurant is open onto the beach, the Thai food is good in the restaurant. Peaceful place on a beautiful white sand beach.

I have been travelling to Thailand for years now for prolonged stays in Bangkok and no trip is complete without a visit to Tubtim on Ko Samet. You can't find friendlier staff. Many have been there for years and remember you too. The food is great and the rooms a modest Thai beach bungalow style, unless you want to slash... More

We paid 2300 baht for a hut in "Zone A". This amounted to a very basic aircon hut 3 rows back in a muddy swamp. This would have been a perfect setting for an entomologist, but not conducive for a relaxing beach break. However, more concerning than the poor huts was the attitude of most of the staff at the...

I booked a garden view room with air conditioning at a price a little bit under 2000 Baht. The location is great with nice beachfront and just a few hundred meters away from a vibrant (gay) night pub. The staff were friendly and willing to provide assistance. However the room is minimal and the breakfast line offers very limited choices.... More

You definitely pay for location here as the beach is lovely and small and clean. However at the same rate as a city center 4* Bangkok hotel, the room is basic and in need of upgrading. Breakfast is possibly the worst I have experienced in Thailand, service is received if asked otherwise not there, housekeeping is on request only, no... More

The room is very uncomfortable and somehow is very run down. It looks more like a basic chalet to a so called a resort. Staff is unfriendly. The room is dark and small. Full of mosquitos. Worst thing is the Internet provided is very unstable and the shower experience is sucks! It's over-rated!

Tubtim Resort has changed so much in the last years. When I come there the first time more than 20 years ago, it was a paradise. That time the bungalows was very simple and the price was really low. All peoples what comes here - Thai and from all over the world - loved this great place. But every year... More
