“Fantastic hotel and service”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

I stayed here back in April and had a really great time. From the moment we arrived the staff were helpful, friendly and really couldn't do enough to make our stay as perfect as possible. The manager in particular was a lovely woman and gave us some great recommendations of things to do and see in our time there.

It is a bit away from the town but this was one of the best reasons for staying here - the beach is practically deserted. We hired a scooter from the hotel at a very reasonable rate and used this to get around most days.

The only small downside was the lack of variety of food at breakfast. We stayed for a week and could definitely have done with some different items on the table towards the end. But saying that the chef cooked me up some excellent pancakes on the last day after me asking for them the day before! Again - the service could not be faulted.

The room was spacious, well air conditioned and clean.

I would absolutely stay here again and would encourage other people to do so - having seen the quality of accommodation and facilities at the more expensive hotels on the same expanse of beach this is definitely the best value and quality.

Stayed here for 3 nights (July 2-5) and absolutely loved it. Stayed in a beachfront room with a nice view of islands in the horizon. Room was nice and spacious, bath was big and had an open shower with view of the sea. Food at the restaurant was quite good and the breakfast was decent.
There is some renovation going on at the hotel that is scheduled to be complete in Sept/Oct. This did not bother us at all as our room was quite some distance from it.
Downside of this place is the distance from shops, main town. If you rented a car/scooter then its ok, but if you are depending on taxi ( the hotel can arrange for you) , prepare to spend on the fares. Another one is the air conditioning, it can be a bit noisy at night.

We loved it here and will most probably stay here again if we visit Krabi.

Big resort, quite spread out. Rooms are good and big specially. Bath is nice, but no covers, all is open, becomes a balancing act with family present. Location is a bit away from any major city, there is a small village nearby but main Aonang beach is far off. It has its own big private easy access to beach. Not a crowded one at all and very peaceful / safe. Good for long walks etc. For swimming, hightide is good else you need to really cross a lot of shallow water with sharp rocks to reach deep water at lowtide - not advisable. Kayaking all is there, also cruise boats do pickup from resort. Tours are available from hotel itself which are a tad expensive than the ones if you were in main Aonang town.

Lovely sunset view with drinks being served there. The food is excellent though a bit on the higher side but worth it.Breakfast average. You can also eat at the restaurants in the village nearby. For commuting you need to hire bikes at the hotel. Pool is clean and well mantained, so was the outside Jaccuzi. Service levels are decent but Staff communication is a bit of issue.They have a inhouse spa, though we did not try that out. They do arrange a airport pickup. Restaurant has a amazing view.

Plus point - location is best for those that do not want the crowds and noises, only about three resorts on a 2 km long beach. Food, rooms, pool all very good.Not costly room rates, value for money. The sunset view is amazing. You can sit for hours for the view.

Minus point - far from any place, no traffic on connecting road, hence if you want to go anywhere, even the village nearby, hire from hotel which is very costly. Aonang town where most action is a good distance and very costly commute.

You can spend a good 3-4 days and with day long tours the overall trip becomes special.

We stayed at the Tup Kaek Sunset Beach Resort for a week on our honeymoon in May 2013. We loved our stay at this hotel. We stayed in a beachside villa and the room was amazing. Just open your curtains and you are overlooking the beach and the Hong Islands. The room was massive and had everything you would expect for the price.

As previous reviewers have said the hotel is a fairly long way out of town. We hired a motorbike from the hotel and used that to ride to Klong Muang where there were loads of restaurants, shops, Thai Massage parlours and a few pubs. (If you are not confident enough to ride a motorbike you will need to pay for a taxi to and from which starts to get pricey).

We went on 2 tours booked through the hotel and were picked up by van/ car both times. We also booked a tour to Hong Island from a long boat driver parked out the front of the hotel (highly recommend this!!!).

The staff at the hotel were friendly. We had a few issues during our stay- but nothing major (international TV would drop out every night at about 7pm which despite numerous phone calls was not resolved). Main issue was that the spa was closed for the low season which we were not informed of until we checked-in (not a huge issue as we had the bike but we feel as though we should have been informed of this before our arrival.

The hotel provides snorkeling equipment, kayaks and extra beach towels and the beach out the front of the hotel was clean and great to swim at.

I look forward to returning to this hotel in the future!

Spent a while looking for a hotel in this area as wanted to see the lovely island views. I have stayed in this area of Ao Nang 3 times before, and highly rate it for a beach/ adventure holiday destination.

We drove here from Chumphon, and found it very easily with a basic map, and was well signed posted from the main road.

We had a good greeting by the staff on checking in and was showed the grounds of the hotel before showing us our room which was situated just back from the beach but could still see the sea from our room.

I will state now, during our stay they were removing the older bungalows/ rooms and building new, so there was a bit noise, but did not ruin our 2 night stay in any way.

The room was clean but looking a bit tired, but did the job, bathroom the same. Bed was comfortable. Free Wifi.

The view from the beach is amazing, the sunsets are just the best too. Lovely quite beach not to busy nice sea no rubbish around. A really nice relaxing place to be.

Breakfast is buffet which was OK with a good choice, the restaurant dinner, the food was average only ate here once. Restaurant is located next to the beach over looking the sea which is spot on.

Location of the hotel is at the end of the coast road pass some small shops and restaurants and other hotels, pass a shipping pier. The hotel is not close to any shops, probably a 15 minutes walk or a 20 minutes drive to the closet town Ao Nang.

Many island tours can be taken from the beach by long tail boat or Book in Ao Nang which will be cheaper and get picked up from hotel. I recommend paying more for speed boat trip. Hong island being one of the nicest in the area.

We stayed just 2 nights here, really just for the quite beach and views. We stayed a further 4 nights in Ao Nang. Which is a bit cheaper, more night life but not as quite.

We stayed here for the second week of our honey moon, the hotel is about 40 mins from krabi airport and about 20 mins from aou nang. We stayed in a beach bungalow which was amazing beautiful view and stepped straight onto the beach. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food here is very good a little pricy for what you expect in Thailand but you generally to pay more in hotels so we didn't mind 160 bht for a delicious plate of pad Thai really isn't bad. The hotel is perfect if you want quiet and a beautiful beach, we ventured into aou nang a few days and nights as there is more to do it cost about 600 bht one way but we had a great time defiantly go and see the blue dragon lady boys show it was great. Overall we had a fantastic time at the tup kaek and would defiantly return if we were back in krabi

My friend and I had booked a beach cottage, one of the older types that the resort has..we had booked this several months ago…when we got there, our bungalow had been destroyed as management decided to upgrade the resort to international standards….well, we weren't impressed, they put us in a garden villa, double bed,, which was totally unacceptable. No one contacted us to advise us the cottage we had booked and paid for was no longer in existence…my friend and are wanted separate beds so everything was going wrong……in the morning, we finally got it all sorted out….beach view villa as paid for…rooms lovely but the beds are rock hard ( I had room service bring in extra duvets which I used as mattresses), and housekeeping needs to improve its service…dust along the ledges, floor not the cleanest…the bathrooms are lovely but open to the elements so after a few torrential downpours, our bathroom floor looked like the jungle…in-fact the water entered the main room….breakfast was ok….the beach and pool were lovely…restaurant staff were great, they got to know us and anticipate our wants…drinks are expensive and sometimes hit and miss but ok, food was great but again expensive…would I go back…yes!!! It's out of the way so I strongly recommend you bring your own drinks and nibblies….

Room Tip: beach villas are simply lovely….
