Info : Tubkaak, Krabi
The Tubkaak is a boutique hotel in Krabi province. Located on a wide stretch of powdery white sand beach, the Tubkaak is both private and peaceful. Built in typical Southern Thai style, the design and architecture has protected the beautiful natural environment in which the resort sits.
Great care was taken not to fell trees and other flora during the construction. The hotel has a large stretch of beach frontage and comfortable bean-bags, hammocks and hanging chairs for lazing and watching the days pass by. The view out across the turquoise waters of the Phang-Nga bay and the Hong Islands is magnificent and changes dramatically with the rise and fall of the tide and the shifting shades of sunlight.
Whilst being luxurious, the Tubkaak concept is actually more nature orientated. Great pride is taken in the natural environment and there are many outdoor spaces to relax and spend time. The main restaurant is located on a wooden terrace on the beachfront. A selection of international and Thai dishes are available and a fantastic variety of cocktails. In-room dining is also offered.
