... time of 2:08 hours). I remember my first real attempt at running at the tender age of 23, during which I went for about 100m before almost collapsing/vomiting. Around this same time, I received some of the greatest life advice I've been given in my adult life, courtesy of an incredibly arrogant former policeman (but that's another story). It was this: "Everyone thinks you're good at something and then you practice. Actually, you have to practice until you get good." While this ...

A day with the elephants.

A travel blog entry by bree.therese


... He took a liking to a guy from Ukraine and started messing with him. He referred to Mum and I as "Aussie" After a little bit of banter we were taken over to another hut, this one complete with rickety stairs. Joe marvelled at my tattoos and told me to ditch my thongs. Mum was up and onto the elephant first and before i could have second thoughts, i found myself scrambling up onto the back of ours. The elephants skin felt like leather, leather with long course black hair. ...

Return to Phi Phi Don

... t all bad. We spent an entire day exploring trails on the far side of the island, to be ambushed by monkeys, bugs and an endless terrain of walking up and downhill in the jungle. I want to remember Phi Phi and its surroundings as the beautiful limestone towers coated in green jungle, surrounded by turquoise blue waters, and waters filled with black tip reef sharks. But ...

David hadn’t shown up this morning so it was just Helen and I but we were joined by an American guy called Jim who was on a day introduction to diving. We went through safety talks again and made our descent. Once under the water Helen and I did a few of our skills again like taking off our ...

    Loved the friendly staff, our room was spotless and smelled amazing. Restaurant was great and affordable, beach was serene and gorgeous. It rained while we were there on June 7-9th, but we STILL had a fantastic time! 2/3 days it was pouring all day long, but we didn't care bc we just wanted to relax. Unfortunately we couldn't take any adventures, but I hear they offer some great boat stories.

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Tubkaak Krabi Boutique Resort Nong Thale

    Stay at the Tubkaak!


    Everything about this hotel is excellent. I am an 'attention to detail' person and they have certainly perfected this - a beach bag, orchids everywhere, free DVD hire, the music when you are shown to your room - and this list never ends. The staff are wonderful and very helpful, their English isn't perfect, but you're in Thailand for goodness sake (we learnt 3 words in Thai!!).

    I am VERY picky and even I had trouble picking up on many things.

    Stay here, you won't regret it. We stayed in a Delux room - they are on the first floor and have nice views. Very quiet and very relaxing.

    When you decide to go, we hope you have as great a time as we did.

    Absolutly Fabulous


    My husband and i just returned from a 4 night stay at the Tubkaak. This "boutique" but upscale resort is a great choice. The staff were very friendly. The hotel is situated on the beach. The Only 2 negatives is that you need to drive by a mining area to get there - but its worth it. As for location the Rayavadee is in a better spot (by Raily beach) however it is twice the price. Not worth it - you can take a boat or a taxi anywhere you want to go!

    Definitally go there and definitally go to Krabi over Ko Samui or Phuket. Absolutly wonderful - take boat trips to Phi Phi and surrounding islands....

    Lovely and quiet


    This was a sweet hotel. We stayed from Xmas Eve until 28 Dec. The positives are that the staff are very friendly, the food good (great Phad Thai), good cocktail menu. The service can be a litle slow... but when you are relaxing it does not really matter.

    Quiet Paradise!


    If you are looking for a true "boutique" resort, The Tubkaak is the place to go: friendly, small, luxurious and stunning!

    Heaven and beyond at the Tubaak


    After months of searching for the perfect resort for our honeymoon, we stumbled on the Tubkaak Resort in Krabi. During this research, many folks on this forum raved about the Rayvadee, Banyan Tree and Pimalai but none of these exceeds our experience at the Tubkaak. We passed by many of these resorts and what we found was that the beaches were packed with tourists and vendors. If you're looking for a place of serenity and a bit of heaven, stay here.

    Great Holiday


    Stayed here for 2 nights (feb 4-6th'05). We had taken the Tubkaak suite which is worth every dime.

    The staff were very helpful, extremely good natured and friendly. They went out of the way to set up dinner right on the beach, especially for us.

    The spa was simple but excellent, used it to the hilt.

    The minor complaints we did have were- language. Although they do speak and understand english it is very basic, and it seems easier to communicate in person than on the phone. But it really is minor, atleast their not arrogant like the french. Had worse experiences in Paris.

    There for the tsunami


    We were at the Tubkaak from December 24, 04 to January 1, 05.

    Shssssssh....Wonderful but VERY quiet


    This is a beautiful hotel. Stayed here for 5 nights. Deluxe rooms are on upper floor of the two storey houses, superior rooms on lower floor, sea view villas towards beach front (but not right on beach ie you don't step out of your door onto the sand). Architecture is stunning and the open air bathrooms are gorgeous with stone baths and sinks, lush plants, pebbles - think Zen. Running water cascades through the lush gardens in series of streams and pools. Lovely pool with central jacuzzi area (not very strong jets) and separate 'bubble' area. Open air massage sala, lovely shop, good but quite informal,small spa. Bar/library with lots of books and board games, cards, puzzles etc. If you're facing the sea, houses to right hand side and middle leading down to restaurant and beach are more secluded but you do get noise from service path behind houses on right hand side that staff use to access restaurant. We spent one night in a upper floor deluxe room on this side but suffered from the noise from the service path and construction noise from repairs they were carrying out on house next door - after mentioning this to manager we were immediately moved to another upper floor deluxe room in house situated around pool area - a lot quieter. Room and bathroom were sightly smaller but instead of open downstairs seating area it had balcony with large lounging daybed overlooking pool. Good restaurant (thank goodness since you'll be eating here a lot since there is nowhere else to go!) has stunning views across to Hong Islands. Resaturant prices are very reasonable all things considered (however I live in London so I'm used to very high prices - if you live elsewhere you might think they're exorbitant...!) though as with any other restaurant here 'western' dishes are the more expensive items on the menu. Wine as everywhere in Thailand is very expensive due to high taxes - expect to pay at least 1200 Baht for bottle of bog standard house wine. The Beach is good, very slightly pebbly in places, lots of shade from trees bordering beach but as with a lot of beaches in this part of Thailand you should be aware that you have to wade out a long, long way to get any depth and the sea is tidal and when the tide goes out (which is does twice a day) it REALLY goes out (and then these tiny, tiny crabs all scuttle about cleaning the sand for you!) Good thing about this beach is absence of longtail boats queuing for business - you can get them, if you want to visit Hong Islands for example, but they don't come into the beach touting for business = peace and quiet. Now don't let this put you off but it's worth mentioning that walking along the beach you can get a view of the nearby quarry/cement works enormous jetty/pier conveyor belt that loads up these huge ocean tankers (to left of hotel) but you do not see this when relaxing on the beach so it really doesn't affect you and it's far away enough that there is no noise from it. You do have to drive through this quarry/cement works to get to hotel on very bumpy unmade up road so leaving the hotel at night isn't really an option - it'd be a long, long bumpy ride in the pitch dark since there is absolutely nothing surrounding the hotel save a couple of other (more downmarket) small resorts. There is a lot of construction going on in the area so more resorts are being developed along this stretch of coast



    If you need to get away from it all and relax, this is the hotel for you! Beautiful lush gardens in which 44 rooms and been placed without destroying any trees. The rooms around the pool are in Thai "houses" and we had a 1st floor room with a pitched roof and balcony with a day bed to laze on!

    A deserted beach front with views out to Hong Island, a fabulous restaurant serving all types of cuisine not just Thai. If you like nightlife other than hearing the frogs or seeing a sloth move as slowly as we did this is not the place for you!

    Highly Recommend!


    The Tubkaak was by far the best resort that we stayed at in Thailand. The grounds were beautiful with lost of lush gardens and Koi pools. The setting is perfect with lush mountain jungle as the backdrop and a beautiful beach facing the Hong islands. The rooms are beautiful (request an upstairs room as they are larger, airier, and have vaulted ceilings). The shower and large tub are open air. The pool was huge and very beautiful. There was a nice spa, library/bar and convenience shop on site and the restaurant was delicious. They have Thai and European food and a wonderful breakfast buffet. Finally, the service was absolutely impeccable. Smiles everywhere! They even let us stay in an empty room because our flight didn't leave until 8 pm. The resort is VERY secluded so I would recommend making transportation arrangements ahead of time with the hotel. It is about a 45 minute drive from the airport. This is a great place for honeymooners or those who just want to relax as there isn't much nearby. We loved it and wanted to stay longer! I highly recommend.
