The Tubkaak is a lovely rustic boutique hotel located in the prime location of Krabi's Nopparat Thara National Park, on a wonderfully secluded beach looking across the Andaman Sea at an archipelago of 13 beautiful islands. In fact, two of these islands - Koh Yao Yai and Koh Yao Noi - provide the perfect shelter from the southwest winds, so Tubkaak’s beach and calm waters really can be an oasis all year round.

The whole hotel is typically Thai in style, with bright welcoming colours all-pervasive across the 49 charming villas that are dotted throughout the property's tropical gardens. The rooms have simple décor and are decked out with antique furniture, so are particularly Thai and cosy. The newer villas are a little more spacious, and even have their own private plunge pools.

Now, we all know that Thailand is a popular destination for good food - scratch that, great food - and The Tubkaak boasts two pretty fine eateries, the first of which is The Arundina, a beachfront restaurant specialising in classic Thai dishes created from local (and freshest of fresh) ingredients. It's dangerously romantic, and a cocktail under the nightly cosmos is a must. Alternatively, guests can opt to dine at the tranquil Di Mare, which overlooks the Andaman Sea, serves first class Italian food and provides the perfect spot for a sun downer… Need we say more?

The Tubkaak is pretty secluded, so this really is the place for those seeking to avoid any hustle and bustle. The hotel's gardens and beach, complete with hammocks and oversized cushions, are great for kicking back and relaxing. It's also home to L'escape Spa, which features three extraordinary cocoon treatment rooms, and a spa menu which blends Oriental and traditional Thai therapeutic principles.

Activities here include Thai cookery lessons, a wonderful swimming pool, kayaking and snorkelling. Of course no beachfront hotel would be the same without an option to take island or fishing excursions.
