“Fabulous, heavenly stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Tubkaak Hotel for 5 days this November and had a wonderful stay. This hotel is in a beautiful setting, is immaculately maintained, and has the most personalized service we have ever experienced anywhere around the world. The atmosphere is relaxed, the staff is trained to offer outstanding service, to a person. We arrived in the late afternoon and by dinner we were called by name. The next evening the staff remembered our beverage preferences. We could have stayed much longer and will again when we're in Thailand next time!

My family and I stayed here as the last stop in a lengthy tour of the region put together by Andaman Adventures, who booked all our transfers, hotels and day trips, plus got us good rooms and prices too. This hotel was excellent in every respect. The staff were very attentive to detail and very helpful whenever we asked for anything. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and kept free of bugs and creepie crawlies. We booked a Deluxe, which was great. The restaurants and pool were top quality, free wi fi was a good plus, but you expect this these days in a resort in this price bracket.

My went on a few excursions including a trip to Phi Phi and a private tour of some of the inland attractions. The spa is reasonably priced compared to other luxury resorts we have stayed at. The restaurant served food which was delicious. I recommend this hotel to travelers who want to relax and take it easy in beautiful and peaceful surroundings.

I want to make a special mention of the breakfast every day. I really liked the home-made jam and the imported sausages. The Thai menu is also very good, the resort serves some western dishes, but they aren’t the highlight.

The hotel is in the jungle about 20 minutes or so from Ao Nang, so if you want to go for an evening out in involves a bit of a trek, which we didn’t find too much of a hardship, it’s nt as if we did anything else that day or were in a hurry.

The resort provides massive beach pillows, which are huge and very comfortable, nowhere better to read a book and have a snooze.

Little late in writing a review and this is my 1st but I feel strongly inclined to do so. My girlfriend and I stayed for 6 nights and had an unforgettable stay.

The resort has a beautiful “eco” tourist feel to it. Perfectly situated on the border between forest and Sea. The scenery is breathtaking, we found ourselves watching the sunset with cocktails every evening.

We found the location perfect for what we wanted, somewhat secluded, chilled out, boutique. It had a personal feel to it. At the same time, we were close enough to Ao Nang for the more traditional hustle and bustle you might be looking for. The hotel has an excellent selection of well planned excursions and they’re helpful in choosing the many they have to offer.

Our room was lovely. King bed, rainforest shower, huge open roof bath and cleaned and tidied every day at our convenience.

The food and drink was excellent with a nice selection, perhaps a little more expensive than I was hoping. The staff were friendly, personable, helpful, polite and undoubtedly give the resort a competitive advantage.

In a nutshell, it was perfect.

Just back from a vacation with my wife at Tubkaak on 9-12 December.

The Good:
1. Booked via online. Reservation staff was prompt and efficient. All enquiries responded to within a day
2. Was kindly offered a complimentary upgrade due to the premier pool villa still undergoing renovations. The transition was real smooth.
3. Encountered jellyfish during a private longtail boat trip to the nearby islands. Was really impressed and appreciative when the manager, Sunny, actually came down personally to our suite to apply some herbs for my wife and me. Kudos to him.
4. Most service staff were polite and non-intrusive. A special commendation for Thasida, who arranged virtually everything for us without fuss.

Bad:
1. The private longtail boat trip was a great disappointment as the boatman was unable to converse in English. So basically, dialogue was non-existent. We were supposed to travel to Hong Island, Pak Bia Island, then Paradise Island. After the trip to Pak Bia, the boatman asked "ready?". Of cos we replied yes, thinking that we are going to our next stop. Unexpectedly, he brought us back to our resort. Yes, it was quite obvious after some time that the boat is heading to our resort but we simply can't be bothered to ask and then struggle to make sense of any potential confusing dialogue. One more thing is, his boat is not equipped with any vinegar, which relieves jellyfish stings. He managed to actually laugh at our predicament. Eventually, we got the vinegar from other boatmen.

2. It's a pity that the hammering and drilling did affect the tranquility of the place, which has actually brought about negative reviews in the past few weeks.

Nevertheless, it is still a good relaxing trip, thanks to the luxurious suite and the great service provided by the managers and their staff.

It's hard not to feel rejected by a place we went consistently--at the high season of Chinese New Year and the off season for a breather, only to be told that we are no longer welcome because we have a younger child. "Oh no, you are still welcome," we are told. Just not when we want to go. We are welcome when it is a bad time of the year to come, when others don't want to come. The hotel now wants weddings. They want to be unbothered by younger ones. And the newly married couple who won't be welcome back once they have a child. Except at those times of the year that are bad, when others don't want to come. All the nicey nice words, all the smiley smiles, all the sweety sweet words are just skin deep.
Tubkaak is a lovely place. Except their decision feels like betrayal.

Stayed April 2013, traveled with family

Small size of the overall resort and staff were amazing! 2 Great restaurants, private beach and use of kayak's were great and very convenient! We were there for a Thai holiday festival and was great that the staff helped us learn and participate in! Location was amazing, and you can take and schedule day trips to other islands/beaches from here (wish we would have done more of this).! Reach out to me for any added info I could provide!

My wife and I just returned from 5 nights at this resort. The key to these types of places is that you are going to be on location for most of your time there - and we were. My point is that you are not just paying for the room like its just somewhere to sleep. There are complaints here about high prices but our package (which included 1 meal, 1 spa treatment and transfers) felt like good value. We took a mid -price room which had the outside bath/shower and it was very comfortable, spacious and quiet. We never heard the adjoining rooms. When we were on the balcony (overlooking the pool) there was some construction noise but it was not disturbing. We ate at the Thai and the Italian restaurants which were both superb. We also took advantage of Happy Hour every night. My only gripe is that the bills include 10% Service Charge, which is fine and common in Europe, but there shouldn't then be a line for Tip on each bill. Service Charge includes theTip in anyones language. The complex itself is stunning with running water and jungle foliage everywhere. I don't have to tell you about the service. Thai service and hospitality cannot be bettered worldwide and the girls are just so beautiful and charming. So when considering this resort please bear in mind that you are paying for the whole package which includes the view which is why you are going ? One more thing, as my wife is a veggie we thought we might have to eat in Ao Nang once or twice as Thai food (and oriental in general) tends not to translate into vegetarian very well. We mentioned this to the receptionist when we were booking the shuttle bus for the first visit. He said we should try the first visit before booking second. He was so right! Imagine Blackpool on a Saturday night then 10 times worse!

Room Tip: The ones with the outside bathroom are great.
