Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A generally very positive review. This was our fourth and last hotel stop of our Cambodia/Thailand trip Chosen as a place to unwind and relax and that worked out just perfect Resort is spotlessly clean and very well maintained Staff are all first class Spa great Pool is nice and wasn’t ever overly busy Beach was very clean and a nice place to be Kayaks and paddle boards were always free and available. The hotel main restaurant was great with a good range of options. We didn’t try the Italian because we were in Thailand so can’t comment on it. Only negative point. Boat trip ‘picnic’ was a bit of a let down. We only received one main course and it was covered in ants so couldn’t be eaten No drinks provided apart from water. Fruit was only pineapple which I don’t like (I know that’s my issue). The food cost was more than the boat trip so I suggest you go early and don’t bother with food. In fact there are some food options on a few islands you’ll stop at. If you just want to chill it’s a great choice. If you’re looking to travel outwith hotel then perhaps pick somewhere closer to a town.

Hotel's Favourite
Amazing boutique hotel with lovely welcoming people looking to make your stay special. Brilliant buffet breakfast with freshly made egg station, avocado on toast or Thai food or hot English breakfast plus usual cakes, bread selection [coconut jam is yummy] all covered carefully and fresh portions brought out regularly. The fruit was so tasty and each morning the bar had a different super juice freshly squeezed to try. All rooms including ours are close to the beautiful beach and pool. Both restaurants are extremely good with local Thai food for the adventurous plus check the back page for more familiar Thai dishes. Italian was surprisingly delicious with soft crispy edged bruschetta and delicious fresh toppings for pizza. We had great fun with the onsite Thai kickboxing classes which we had never tried before and picked up so much in just two classes. The teacher was great at taking us step by step to learn key moves at a pace we could follow. The free shuttle pass we used to go to Krabi Town and the night market. A fun experience where you could eat and shop and be entertained as there's a stage with local acts on. For the night we visited it was a children's talent show with varying talents which was great to watch while sipping our cocktails. Even at the market safety and hygiene were taken seriously with gloves in use and stall holders wearing masks. I have an egg and dairy intolerance but found it easy to eat by using a photo of the condition written by a local to show to the stall holders. The hotel's other trips are also worth a mention with the walk up to naga mountain worth the hard work since it's fairly steep and a bit of a scramble at times but great views. We had a personal guide to take us there. Plus the boat picnic trip was so romantic and the food so special with a three-course Thai picnic with fresh fruit as snacks seeing tiny little islands, snorkelling or just admiring the unusual landscape. Such a special experience. Evening entertainment was varied with the saxophone very talented and some singers soulful but one couple a little warbly for my liking but very familiar tunes so still a good listen and not too late. Hotel also helped us book a trip to Tiger Temple with pick up at the hotel which included swimming in hot spring water. If we had stayed a little longer we would have spared time for yoga mornings, definitely more Thai boxing and the cooking class but we just couldn't squeeze more into the week we had. Top tip...make sure you have cash for National site access fees and the Tiger temple tour is paid in cash directly too. Also hotel boat trips are direct from beach in front of hotel....so easy to get to. Other tours can be arranged by yourself like the James Bond Island tour we asked for which picks up from hotel but this does take an hour to get to the pier. We'll worth it though but hotels own tour was better.

This was the best resort that me and my husband have been to and we were truly so sad to leave. The location is beautiful. Beach is clean, quiet, and arranged with multiple lounge options. The resort aesthetic is absolutely beautiful. Our suite was comfortable, modern, and had many amazing features (outdoor shower and bath, private pool, huge bathroom, smart TV, reliable wifi). The resort management is nothing short of excellent. Our flight got pushed back several hours, which meant we got in at 10pm. They had the foresight to ask if we needed to preorder any food prior to the kitchen closing and had someone waiting for us to make check in as smooth as possible. We appreciated that immensely after such a long day of travel. All staff are kind, courteous, and accommodating, from our waitstaff to the cleaning staff to the gardeners. You're always greeted with a smile. Both restaurants had excellent food and drink. Breakfast is amazing and something we looked forward to everyday. The spa was a wonderful experience with a unique atmosphere (check out pics of the cocooned treatment rooms), quality services, and wonderfully kind staff. High value and high quality resort that gave us an experience we will never forget. We hope to return someday!

Our stay at The Tubkaak Krabi Boutique Resort surpassed all expectations, providing a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The Superior room created a comfortable and intimate ambiance, featuring a private terrace with a view of the inviting pool area. The room, complete with a plunge pool-style bathtub adorned with petals, radiated a profoundly romantic atmosphere. The resort seamlessly integrated with the local scenery, utilising natural materials and maintaining an admirable eco-conscious effort, reflected in the amenities and items like beach bags, flip-flops, torches, and fans which we could use during our stay. Daily housekeeping, coupled with a turndown service, upheld a high standard of cleanliness, while considerate additions like mosquito deterrents ensured a worry-free environment. The well-laid-out and spacious design of the hotel guaranteed each room its own space, avoiding any sense of crowding. Our culinary journey at Arundina Thai and the Italian restaurant was satisfying, featuring flavorful authentic Thai dishes and wood-fired pizzas. However, we observed that the Thai food tended to be quite spicy unless otherwise requested, and the Western dishes leaned toward the oily side. We explored neighboring hotels, including the Banyan Tree and Amari Vogue (the latter was appalling). While the Banyan Tree offered outstanding food, it lacked the atmosphere The Tubkaak provided, especially with the addition of tasteful and enjoyable entertainment, such as the violinist and the guitarist/ singer duo. The attentive staff added a memorable touch to our dining experience. Our appreciation for our stay at The Tubkaak deepened after visiting other establishments, we were grateful for the value for money and unique atmosphere it provided. What truly set our visit apart were the considerate and personalised touches from the staff. From remembering our preferences to surprising us with a birthday treat for my fiancé, the genuine hospitality made us feel genuinely valued. We encountered an issue with delayed luggage from our connecting flight, and Ben at reception exhibited utmost professionalism, going above and beyond to promptly address the issue to get them delivered to the hotel without us having to worry or stress. Fis at reception also added a delightful touch of humor, lifting our spirits after a long and frustrating journey to Krabi while efficiently checking us in and showing us around our room. During our stay, we indulged in a visit to the spa, and while it may come with a higher price tag compared to other vendors along the beach or in the towns, it proved to be sublimely relaxing, on par with top spas I have experienced in the UK. The attention to detail, such as the choice of massage oil presented in quaint china bottles and the herbal tea provided both before and after the treatment, truly elevated the entire experience. As we bidded farewell to The Tubkaak, we carried cherished memories of the beautiful surroundings, delectable meals, moments of laughter, and sincere hospitality. It wasn't just a holday; it was a rejuvenating experience that rekindled our love and etched lasting memories. For those seeking a comfortable, romantic retreat, The Tubkaak Krabi stands as a solid choice. It's more than a resort; it's a place where memories are crafted, and hospitality is sincere. We eagerly anticipate the day we can return and relive this exceptional experience.

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights for our honeymoon. The service was terrible. The staff were unhelpful and it felt like they were doing us a favour each time that we asked for something. On arrival, we were asked if we wanted to go to the restaurant and we said yes. We were told that the lunch would be complementary whilst we waited for our room which we didn’t expect. It turned out that this was later on our bill and it was not complementary. We were happy to pay for the lunch but this was the beginning of the over promising and under delivering. There are only two restaurants at this hotel and the food is not great at either of them. The breakfast is very limited and there is no variation day on day. Our drink order at breakfast was always mixed up and we ended up with drinks that we didn’t order. On the night we visited the Italian restaurant, the staff did not come to greet us or offer a table until we eventually asked if we could sit down. The pasta was rubbery and the caprese salad is served hot. The top it off we were not given a napkin throughout the meal even after asking for one. The rooms are very small and dated. The concept of an outdoor bathroom is lovely if the staff cleaned the bath and it was not full of bird poo, leaves and mud. We cleaned the bath on one occasion ourselves and the staff left the dirty towel on the side when they came to clean the room. We were told that the soft drinks in the mini bar were complimentary but they were not. The pool is very small and the water jets do not work. If you want to get a drink then you will have to go to find a member of staff which are no where in sight. There are also no towels in the pool area so you have to make sure to always be carrying your towel around from your room. We organised several excursions to see the surrounding islands through the hotel. We had a lovely time on the trip on the long tail boat which included a picnic. However, in preparing to leave the boat we put the hand held fan which you are provided in your room in the picnic bag which was collected by the staff. On check-out, we were shown a photograph of the missing fan and asked to pay for it when their member of staff had already collected this off the boat. This was eventually let go however I would have expected the staff to have accounted for the fact that it was in the items they collected and therefore no longer in our room. We also arranged a private trip to the Phi Phi Islands at 7am. We waited for 30 minutes before we asked the staff why the boat had not arrived. We were instantly told that they did not know and then later told it was not coming at all. A boat did show up an hour later and the manager did offer a discount however there was a misunderstanding and lack of communication was not helpful. We understand that things go wrong, however this should be communicated clearly and explained properly. This is not a 5 star hotel. It would be generous to stay it is an overglorified 4 star hotel. If you want terrible service, mediocre food and to be charged for everything you touch then stay here.

Amazing setting, exceptional service and beautiful surroundings. Hotel rooms are cozy and nicely decorated with small luxury details such as coconut conditioner, slippers and beach bag. And complementary yoga every week day! 👍 Breakfast is amazing (freshly squeezed juice, French toast, avocado toast, fresh fruit, etc ). The place is not recommendable if you are looking for bars, late evenings and dancing. This is a quite place where you can enjoy beautiful nature if beautiful surroundings

We stayed here for 3 nights. It is very remote but that's also the appeal. Set on a great beach with free use of canoes and stand up paddle boards as well as lots of activities including Thai boxing classes. The Thai food here is delicious fresh and spicy and the service is great. The rooms are fantastic large clean with polished floorboards. Do you really need to go anywhere else? Amazing sunsets as well top it all off
