This small, stylish resort offers excellent service and an idyllic location, right on Tubkaak beach. A great deal of thought went in to the design of the buildings, constructed in the style of southern Thailand, and no trees were felled for construction. This means that from the sea, the resort is barely visible.
The resort is small and intimate, with lots of honeymooners and couples, so the place is calm and quiet; most people are there to enjoy the glorious surroundings.
You would expect service to be friendly being in Thailand, but at Tubkaak they also add in charm and efficiency.
The beautifully designed rooms blend contemporary and Thai style to offer stylish and relaxing interiors, comfortable facilities and outdoor bathrooms with sunken baths.
All rooms have a terrace, air-conditioning, outdoor sunken bathtub and separate shower, fridge, DVD player, TV, and tea/coffee-making facilities. Classic Tubkaak design features include wood panelling, silk cushions and unique light fittings.
The hotel is set on the Tubkaak beach, with fantastic views out towards the limestone Hong islands.
The resort is quite remote, although you may think it's more remote than it actually is, due to its clever landscaping. There are shops and restaurants in Klong Muang, 15 minutes away by taxi, and more at Ao Nang, 25 minutes away.
Food and Drink
The Arundina restaurant features a menu of some of the finest Thai food you will taste, with talented chefs creating authentic mouthwatering dishes.
Di Mare restaurant offers the simplicity of authentic Italian pizza and pasta by the sea.
The Sundowner bar lives up to its name, as the perfect place to enjoy the famous west coast sunset.
This is a quiet, boutique property that doesn't have the family facilities available in other larger properties, so families may feel it is not suitable for them.
No children under ten years old are allowed in the resort from 21 December - 28 February, and no children under ten are allowed in the pool villas at any time.
There are lots of trips that you can take while staying in this area, and the hotel is really helpful regarding making arrangements for guests.
Examples include rock climbing, watching Thai kick boxing, renting a long-tail boat for island hopping, cooking classes, yoga, golf, and trips to islands in the area, such as James Bond Island and Koh Phi Phi.
This charming resort is one of Audley's favourites, with a lovely setting, beautiful design and good facilities. The peaceful location means it's perfect for those looking for quiet seclusion.
