Tubkaak Krabi Boutique Resort Review
Tubkaak Krabi Boutique Resort is a 5-star beachfront resort in Krabi situated on the private Tub Kaek Beach.This is a remote, laid back boutique resort which focus on understated quality.
If you want to just relax by day, eat and drink quality food and chill in the evenings, this is the perfect holiday resort.
For people who want privacy, peace of mind, excellent service, beautiful natural surroundings, this may be for you.
If you want to go clubbing or nightlife entertainment then this place is not for you.
Tubkaak Krabi Boutique Resort's location
Tubkaak Krabi Boutique Resort is 45 minutes from the airport, you can arrange transfer to/from Krabi airport direct with the hotel for 500 baht per person
The location is quite remote and you need to get a taxi to go anywhere. There would be nothing in walking distance outside the resort. Not one bar, shop or restaurant. The nearest few are centrered around the Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort about 5km away.
Tubkaak Krabi Boutique Resort hosts a private beach which boasts fantastic views of the sunsets and marvellous Hong Islands. The view of the Hong islands is fantastic and the sunset was the best of any place.
Tubkaak Krabi isolated location means that most guests tend to stay around the resort unless venturing off on a short day trip to nearby islands or a night out in Ao nang beach.

What so unique about Tubkaak Krabi Boutique Resort?
Tubkaak Krabi Boutique Resort facilities
Facilities in Tubkaak Krabi Boutique Resort include the freeform pool, spa and the library with internet are all excellent.
Tubkaak Krabi Resort has a library with wide range of books that will entertain you as you lay there on the beach, or while lounging at the pool sunbathing
There is free wi fi access in the library if you need to surf online.
There is also free DVD lending library where you can snuggle up in your bed and catch up with the latest DVD movies.
Tubkaak Krabi Boutique Resort swimming pools
Tubkaak Krabi Boutique Resort has a free form pool. The center has a bubble area which they call it a jacuzzi but it was far from such.
Since there are only a few guests we spent a lot of time by ourselves poolside. The sun loungers are plentiful with nice big umbrellas.
They even provide two beach towel and two fans all in a nice beach bag - it is small details like this that makes this place stand out
If you want to sun bathe at the private beach, sun loungers are banned in Krabi so Tubkaak resort provides extra large bean bags for your pleasure to sun tan.
Tubkaak Krabi Boutique Resort restaurant
The restaurant is surrounded by trees and boasts even more nature with the huge population of Koi fish.
Many guests from neighbouring resorts also come to have their dinner here at Tubkaak restaurant.
If you book through certain travel agents, you are allocated 600 baht per person daily to spend at the hotel for food (allowing a choice of 3 course set)- this does not go very far espically if you like to eat.
This amount is cumulative, so in essence if there are two of you, they subtract 1200 baht per day off the final bill.
The menu was very extensive and it had a great balance of both Western and Thai dishes. The dishes are all made with very fresh ingredients and the taste of Thailand is passionately placed in each and every dish.

Other restaurants near Tubkaak Krabi Resort
Tubkaek Sunset resort which seems to have been left behind somewhere in the 1980's and their large open air restaurant was uninspired and under-spiced food. The food was not as good as the Tubkaak but about 25% cheaper
Tubkaak Krabi Boutique Resort Sport activities
Free kayak - the resort don't charge for it. The staff will prepare it if you want to go for free kayak... especially for those visitors who have never tried it before, this is a great experience! it's fun, not too tiring, and best of all it is free.
Tubkaak Krabi Boutique Resort Spa
The Spa in the resort is quite small but with lovely open air massage beds. They are very professional with a wide range of massages - the lemon grass oil massage was superb.
We tried out the spa on a couple of occasions which was good but of course far more expensive than Bangkok.
Do look out for discounts, they offer 20% discounts between 10am to 2pm, however check with the spa staff for their promotions. A traditional Thai Massage cost 1200 baht for one and half hours, I tried it and it was just as good.

The attention to detail by the Tubkaak resort was amazing and upon arrival offered us a cold scented towel to freshen up with and drinks.
The General manager Petcharat, a local Thai lady will personally come out to greet and welcome you to the resort.
The resort staff will take the time to explain everything and gave you a tour around the resort ground and show you to your room.
