Reviewed January 13, 2013

My only complaint about this hotel is that we couldn't stay longer! Wonderful service, genuinely charming and enthusiastic staff, excellent English almost universal, delicious food, great pool, lovely beach... the list goes on and on. A genuinely faultless stay in a super-stylish yet relaxed hotel that makes you feel completely catered for without any sense of being suffocated. We loved it and would recommend it to anyone looking for a personalised experience in a stylish setting away from the crowds.

Food, drinks and spa prices are extremely reasonable (much better value than all other hotels we stayed in on the trip) and the staff go out of their way to recommend day trips/ activities in the region. We even took part in a traditional ceremony of feeding the monks at the hotel.

We were travelling with our two year old daughter and she was made to feel like a superstar - staff couldn't have been more charming and the separate, shallow children's pool attached to the main pool is a god-send.

Just go!

3rd visit in 5 years and really nice to be welcomed back by the charming staff. Rooms have been renovated since our last visit and seem bigger and lighter than before, but still a "Thai" experience. New "upper deck" above the old restaurant, which gives so many great tables to sit at and enjoy the beach view. Thai cuisine is definitely the specialty and the emphasis is on fabulous local seafood (with lots of alternatives). Try the breakfast roti, prepared by the chef at the egg station, for a unique breakfast experience and feed the huge fish in the pond afterwards. Sunset view from the beach is simply the best. Spa is good value and the masseuses of the highest quality.

Room Tip: As near the beach as possible

when you choose a hotel, it is basically because the pictures of the website are beautiful . What happens when you arrive to the hotel and the hotel is partly in works: there was no direct access to the beach from the bar. People making noise all day. Impossible to take any nice picture. No more honeymoon diner on the beach. I felt like cheated. It is a real shame that a 4/5 stars hotel does not compensate customers or advise them. PLEASE DO NOT TRUST THEM

Room Tip: visit more than one before pccupying. please check rooms on the swimming pool. others are gloomy and...

I just spent 8 days, and two more to come, in Tubkaak. I travel substantially along the year and in vacation and i can confidently say Tubkaak is an absolute recommendation. Staff is always extremely helpful, dedicated, charming and repectful. The location is hard to beat with a great view from the beach overlooking a small archipielago of the most beautiful islands you can think of. Is far away from crowds and hectic Thai turistic places. Food is excellent, i can agree is pricey for thai standards but worth paying for. Rooms are spotless and well designed. The spa is good and the staff knowledgeable to the extent i can appreciate. There are several excursions you can take from here but the onenot to miss is longtail to the islands nearby. For scuba diving is also well organized with Ao Nang's KonTiki. Takes some 30min to get there but sites are nice for coral and reef life. Hotel is always helpful and all organization seamless.
The hotel facilities are really well thought from an architectural and gardening perspective, you always feel in the rainforest but with luxurious treatment. I would without hesitation return and recommend the place.

We only stopped at the Tubkaak whilst out riding our motor bike for lunch one afternoon. The service and the welcome from the hotel and staff for our visit was fantastic and we can't wait to factor in this gorgeous hotel to our next holiday trip. The food at the restaurant was amazing and all of the staff made us feel welcome even though we were not current guests. The staff still took time to chat with us about krabi and our holiday. This hotel is absolutely devine and the service and staff make this. Wonderful place. I would say book it based on our 2 hour experience. We will definitely return to this idyllic and peaceful hotel.

My husband and I just spent 6 days at the Tubkaak and were so sad to leave! The hotel does a great job for ensuring your stay is extremely relaxing. The assistant manager Sunny is so personable and hands on - any given day you'd see him a few times walking around the hotel grounds checking on everyone. The entire staff was so accomodating as well and being that it's a small hotel you actually got to know a few of them. The hotel is right on the beach and the rooms are clean and spacious.

The previous reviews are accurate when they talk about how remote the hotel is. It's about a 40 minute drive from the Krabi airport and about a 10 minute drive from the closest town and about 20 minutes from Ao Nang where there is more restaurants/nightlife. The hotel itself has 1 restaurant but we went into town a few nights to get some variety. The hotel staff easily arranges taxi transport. The breakfast at the hotel was delicious and we ate there every day.

If you're looking for a place to relax and spend some quality time with someone, this is the place to do it.

I can't wait to get back! This place was a dream, loved the design and interior, the landscape and location. Our room was just perfectly located by the pool and to the gym. We celebrated our anniversary and the staff welcomed us with flowers on the bed and in the bath. We enjoyed the very professional spa service and felt so pampered and relaxed all the time. Food at the restaurant was excellent, the sunset in the evenings are to die for. This place is really the best place to celebrate your honeymoon or anniversary, so tranquil and peaceful.
