This is the fifth hotel to open at Tubkaek Beach, a 20 km coastline away from the more popular Ao Nang and Railay beaches of Krabi. Approximately 45 minutes’ taxi trip from Krabi International Airport.

By offering only 72 pool suites and villas – each comes with its own private pool and sunset views – guests are offered an intimate and luxurious stay beyond the ordinary.

All suites and villas are modern and bright with gentle tones of wood, stone and sand and go in «modern-chic» style. The highlight is the sumptuous double bed with its private terrace with a pool, giving guests the feeling of being on their own secluded island.

One of the highlights is the ‘Bird’s Nest’ table, perched precariously among the trees around the elevated restaurant Saffron. The restaurant is located so high that you have to use an electric funicular to reach it.

With its elevated location, it offers dramatic views of Krabi’s world-famous limestone miracle and a beautiful sunset – guaranteed the perfect spot for memorable romantic dinners and Instagram moments.
