Hotel reviews: Amari Vogue Resort, Krabi, Thailand

My hubby and I, with our 3 year old boy and 4 year old girl, stayed at the Amari Vogue Resort in Tubkaek beach on 16 Jan 2008. It is a brand new resort, and is one of the best beach resort I have been to.


Traveling along the road to Tubkaek beach, you will reach Tubkaak resort first, then Anyavee resort, the Amari Vogue resort is right beside Anyavee. There are no shops or restaurants within walking distance of the resort. That is perfectly fine for me, because I only want to relax at the resort with my family. The plot of land beside Amari is now vacant and covered by forest. But we saw a sign that it has been sold, so there may be construction in the future.

Overall design:

The lobby is beautiful. There are many steps, which can be quite tiring. But I find that this resort is safer for kids than the Tubkaak resort. My kids can go up and down steps confidently and never seem to get tired of it, so steps are not a problem. There are 4 swimming pools, including one kids pool right beside the beach. Each pool is small and has a unique design, and is quite interesting. The gardens are very beautiful. The beach is nice at high tide, not so attractive at low tide. The view of the hong islands, especially during sunset, is breathtaking. There is a security guard always standing by the beach, and made us feel very safe.


Very classy and very luxurious. The bathroom is beautiful. The bathtub is one of the best I have seen. My kids love the bubble bath in the tub. I asked for a ground floor room, and it has a big outdoor area enclosed by a gate. We can open the gate and walk right out to the pools and the beach. The room has one king size bed, and one single bed. Perfect for families traveling with kids.


We had lunch at the Lotus restaurant, and were very impressed. The thai food is very good, the curry is very spicy, unlike restaurants in other 5 star resorts that cater to westerners. We also ordered a pizza for room service, and it was very nice.


Very friendly, every staff we met smiled at us. Even the security guard at the beach waved and smiled to my kids.


The perfect place to stay if you only want to enjoy the pool and the beach and simply do nothing, which was exactly what we did.

Lanta Old Town Village


Lanta Old Town is small village in Thailand that used to serve as a major Asian sea port right up until about 50 years ago. Visitors who arrive at the village after sundown might believe that the city is in fact a deserted ghost town, but they will be in for a pleasant surprise.


It is early in the morning that this fishing town comes to life and people get up early to get the best catches of the day. It is during these hours that visitors to this town will see the busy day to day lives of the fishing community in Thailand


The residents of Lanta Old Town are extremely diverse and are made up of three different groups which are the Thai Muslims, Thai Chinese and the Gypsy people of the Urak Lawoi Clan. Because of this, the island serves as an interesting mix of cultures in an extremely harmonious nature. In fact this combination of cultures has co-existed for over 200 years, done business together and even intermarried in to each others cultures. This blend of different cultures is so much a part of the town that its residents consider everyone Thai first and their ethnic background second.


Lanta Old Town is an ideal spot to visit to discover the lives of local people as they live natural and non urbanized lives that offer a unique perspective in to a living style that cannot be seen everyday. This point becomes even more apparent when you realize that all the houses in the town are made out of wood.


When visiting this location stay in one of the Krabi luxury villas such as Langham Place Koh Lanta and easily access this truly unique destination that showcases a taste of life without all the modern amenities that people take for granted.

The Five Most Costly Mistakes You Can Make On Your Trip To The Thailand Islands And How To Avoid Them

Southern Thailand islands also known as the “Paradise” Islands are among the most popular tourist destinations in the world. More than 12,000,000 tourists have visited Thailand in 2005, and the majority of them had left the Bangkok International Airport immediately after their arrival and headed straight to the Southern Islands. Some of the visitors were fascinated by the stories of people who were caught in the charms of the unforgettable ambience of the islands, some of them were taken by images they saw on the web, while others were convinced as per the words of their travel agent that the Thai Islands were indeed the ultimate tourist destination that fits every taste, age, budget and personality type. This can partly explain the massive flow of honeymooners, backpackers, families-on-vacation, partygoers, divers and many others to the Thai Islands every year.

However, the inexperienced Thailand traveler may be unconscious to the fact that a satisfying vacation is not a surefire thing even in a place nick named Island Paradise. In order to be successful, enjoyable and fulfilling, your vacation must be thoroughly planned. Unfamiliar destinations often hide little unknown secrets, which hold the enormous potential to make the desired positive change in your vacation.

This article will discuss the biggest mistakes you can make prior and during your visit to the Thai Islands. Adhering to or ignoring the five amendments below can literally make or break your vacation in the Southern Thailand Islands.

Mistake 1: choosing your vacation island spontaneously. Web pictures of tropical islands often make them look almost identical. The inexperienced traveler is likely to assume that no matter where you go in Southern Thailand Islands – you will bump into the same picturesque beach with white sands, turquoise water and a single coconut tree. Falling into the illusion of images while choosing your vacation island out of pure impulse can be a very disappointing experience in case the final destination island does not meet your needs, your personality or expectations at all. To avoid this mistake, define your preferences before hand, make a dedicated research prior to choosing your destination by gathering the relevant information using guidebooks in addition to using the Internet. As you choose the island that fits your needs, pay close attention to the following points:

1. The level of tourist development. Some travelers like their islands loaded with tourist facilities (i. e. Phuket, Koh Samui), whereas others prefer the classic touch “old school” isolated touch (i. e. Koh Phangan, Khao Lak).

2. Nightlife – Phuket, Koh Samui and at lesser extent Krabi offer a thriving nightlife, whereas Koh Phi Phi and Koh Tao are quiet and drowsy.

3. Diving sites – Koh Phi Phi and Koh Tao offer the best diving sites in Southern Thailand.

4. The prevalent level of accommodation. Phuket and Koh Phi Phi offer a immense variety of luxury hotels, while Koh Phangan and Koh Tao offer mostly basic (not necessary low standard) accommodation.

Mistake 2: Assuming that a great vacation can be carried out at a very low budget. Some travelers tend to wrongly assume, that Thailand being a country with developing economy will provide everything including a high standard hospitalization in ridiculously cheap prices. This is partially right, since the local tourism industry suggests an inexpensive travel opportunities to backpackers. However, the spoiled tourist who is used to savor on luxury westernized accommodation will find out the hard way that in order to meet his or her traveling expectations the expenses are appropriate to what is offered. To avoid this mistake and eliminate serious deviations from the planned budget – make your research to learn about price gaps in Southern Thailand Islands. For instance, one should know that staying in some islands (i. e. Koh Phi Phi) is expected to be more expensive, while staying in other islands (i. e. Koh Phangan, Koh Tao) can be significantly cheaper. To avoid any disappointments related to over expenses, I recommend adhering to the following guidelines:

1. Avoid planning a budget on the basis of someone else’s estimations, especially if that person visited the Thai Islands many years ago; spent the vacation in another island than the one you chose; much younger than yourself/ or prefers a different life standard.

2. Make an informed decision regarding the desired level of accommodation. The basic accommodation that includes a clean air-conditioned room and western style bathroom can be booked on relatively low, albeit not ridiculous, price. Contrary to that, a luxury accommodation (that kind of accommodation is quite common in Phuket and Koh Samui) may be almost as expensive as the hotels in your neighboring country.

3. Although checking the room rates is possible using the Internet – the prices of meals should be carefully checked as well. Don’t assume that no matter where you eat – the meal will be cheap. During my first visit to Thailand, I was very surprised to receive a check of the same value as in my home country. Now I know, that the Southern Thailand Islands offer a myriad of western style restaurants with western style prices. Therefore, before you enter a well-designed restaurant – check the menu and make clear budget estimation.

Mistake 3: choosing your vacation beach spontaneously. This is similar to mistake number one – but probably easier to correct, because checking other beaches on the destination is easier logistically and cheaper than checking other islands. However, the “wrong” beach choice can make you feel that you haven’t exploited the full potential of your vacation, or that you have wasted significant part of it. For instance, during my first visit in Koh Phangan I found out two days before the end of my vacation, that my “perfect” beach is located on the other side of the island. The following tips can help you avoid a similar situation:

1. The most developed and crowdie beaches on most islands are located in proximity to the airport (in case there is an airport in your island) or to one of the main seaports.

2. In case you prefer the above type of beaches – be aware of the fact that some of them, especially in Koh Samui and Phuket, are not family friendly.

3. The old school quiet and picturesque beaches are always on the other side of the island. If the “old school” beach is what you are looking for – don’t give up even if the way to Thailand was long and exhausting, and try to make a small effort to cross the island on your way to the opposite side; it will be well worth your while.

Mistake 4: insisting on Westernized food. Some of us tend to worry about experimenting with an unfamiliar food. The Thai tourist industry is aware of this fact; therefore the supply of Western style restaurants in Southern Thailand Islands is huge. Having said that, limiting yourself to these restaurants could be a huge mistake, since the prices for western cuisine are much higher compared to the ones in authentic local restaurants; and even worse– you miss out on one of the most important experiences of the Thai culture – the superior Thai cuisine, probably one of the best in the world. To avoid this mistake, don’t hesitate entering small restaurants with ridiculously neglected interior design, plastic maps and un-plastered walls. These restaurants’ owners are probably the worst marketers – but usually are superior cooks. Your meal in one of these restaurants will often be unbelievably cheap, tasty and mostly made of fresh sizzling ingredients. You will fantasize about these meals long after you have left the island.

Mistake 5: To take your big business suitcase to an island that could be only accessed by sea. A big suitcase is of course very convenient [in Europe]: using it, you can pack everything you need; it can be carried easily thanks to those little wheels; and it makes you look very representative. However, taking a big suitcase to Koh Phangan or Koh Tao is not something I would recommend. The platforms in the piers are extremely narrow and occasionally unstable. So if you’re really lucky – your big suitcase will be safe. If you’re a little bit less lucky – it can fall into the water. If you ran out of luck – you can fall into the water together with your suitcase. I seriously think a back bag would be your best bet. Just for the record, the huge suitcase that was taken by yours truly to her first trip to Koh Phangan was left somewhere in the jungle to frighten local monkeys.

So, on the next time the idea of heading the Thailand Islands crosses your mind, as tempting as it may be, try not to succumb to rumors and fascinating imagery. A thorough research and planning ahead may take some time and effort on your side, but it will be more than worth your while.

Visiting Krabi Thailand – Top 10 Attractions

In the far south of Thailand, Krabi is the poster child for Thailand’s natural coastal beauty. It’s also near Phuket. The scenery is overflowing with remarkable outcroppings of limestone that produce framing cliffs and peculiar formations. In the resort area, the pace is much slower than in other Thai hotspots, with a market that caters more for relaxed travellers and families who would prefer to stay away from the party scene of some of Thailand’s beaches.

Daytrip to Wat Tham Seua

If the heat and humidity aren’t too overwhelming, a trip to Wat Tham Seua, or Tiger Cave Temple, is a must. In fact, in spite of the heat, you may want to venture out to see this site in order to explore the cool maze of caves in which Buddhist monks live and worship. A climb up this Ao Luk Thanu limestone mountain to the summit affords a look at the pagoda, ‘Buddha’s footprint’ and spectacular vistas of the countryside.

Rock climbing

The rock climbing scene at Krabi is fit for all skill levels, with something for everyone. Climbers come from all over the world for the unique karst structures and limestone cliffs, many of which are well marked and bolted for climbers. One of the most popular sites is at Ton Sai Beach, but it’s possible to go climbing at any number of places around Krabi, especially when collaborating with a local rock climbing company. If you’re not sure of your abilities, don’t be too shy to enrol in one of the instructional classes offered.

Koh Lanta Marine National Park

Pristine rainforests and more lovely Krabi beach options can be found on the island of Koh Lanta, which is also a marine national park. The most striking aspect of this island is that it’s home to the nomadic tribe of Chae Leh, also called sea gypsies, who have practiced their own distinct religion and spoken their unique language for centuries. There are plenty of relaxed bungalow settings for those who want to stay a while. Visitors from as far away as Phuket come to visit.

Than Bok Khoranie National Park

Taking a day to check out Than Bok Khorani National Park is a worthwhile endeavour, especially if you’re interested in the diversity of plant life here, from small gardenias to towering trees. The highlight of the park is the green-hued pond that is the namesake for the park. Beyond the pond is the area’s standard fare of limestone formations, caves and mangrove trees. While the park does not offer accommodation, camping is permitted if you bring your own equipment. It’s also an easy drive to and from Phuket.

Shell Fossil Cemetery

A few miles out of Krabi Town, you’ll find the archaeological site known as the Shell Fossil Cemetery. This marvel has been under construction for the past 35 million years and has grown into a huge slab of fossilised snail remains more than 15 inches thick. The site of this former swamp can be found at Ban Laem Pho Cape, which is located about 10 miles from Krabi Town.

Exploring the archipelago

An organised tour of the archipelago is a wonderful way to spend a day, and with your itinerary in the hands of a local tour guide, you can be sure to find wonderful scenery and some great secluded Krabi beach choices. Another way to explore the islands close to Ao Nang Beach is to hire a sea kayak and paddle out to them yourself. This is a good way to get away from the crowds in the resort area and catch some peace along with spectacular scenery.

Scuba diving

If you’re a certified diver, you’ll probably want to jump right in as soon as you arrive in Krabi. The reputation of the nearby Andaman Islands and the wealth of coral reefs fuel much enthusiasm in this area, and there’s no shortage of diving companies to take divers on day and longer trips. Snorkelling is also worthwhile, and those wishing to pick up a diving certificate can enrol in a four-day course. Many of the Phuket dive trips end up here.

Railay Beach

Longtail boats can be hired to take passengers out to Railay Beach, which is barred from the mainland by massive cliffs that make it only accessible by sea. There are a few resorts set up along these beautiful beaches, and Phra Nang, a sacred cave, is one of the area’s principle attractions.


Cycling is a wonderful way to open up the inland countryside, and a 15 or 20 mile loop out of Ao Nang will take you into coconut groves, past quiet villages and in and around the karst outcroppings of rock before bringing you back to the resort. Bicycles can be rented for the whole day at Ao Nang beach in Krabi.

Krabi nightlife

Visitors don’t generally come to Krabi for the nightlife; instead they’re either here for the stunning geological landscape or the chance to relax in a quieter environment that is more conducive to families. Krabi Town itself has very few tourist establishments, with most of the action confined to a mile-long stretch of beach at the Ao Nang resort area. While there aren’t any discos or wild parties, there are plenty of nice restaurants with good seafood and a relaxed atmosphere. The bars in the busiest sector of this beach stay open past midnight.

Last Minute Hotel Reservation high Season | Thailand

Just few days and the New Year Holiday are starting. Many people decide to spend their holiday in a tropical place just to take a break from the cold climate at their home country. Thailand is one of the preferred destination in South East Asia for several reasons: Thailand offer hundreds of natural beauties; wonderful tropical beaches, amazing waterfalls, green rain forest with secular trees. Thailand receive several millions visitors yearly, which make the most visited country in South East Asia, in fact in Thailand there is a huge selection of accommodation for every taste and budget.
Student and Young people use to stay in Khao San Road in Bangkok where is possible to find guest house starting from 5 Euro per night. Also Pattaya and Chiang Mai offer guest house at similar rates.
For people who like to stay by the beach is possible to stay in Koh Samet renting beach bungalows at low cost. Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, Phuket, Krabi, Koh Lanta, Khao Lak are all great beach resort in the South of Thailand where you can spend your New Year beach Holiday.
If you like to spend your holiday in a luxury place, Thailand offer a big selection of 4 and 5 star resorts and hotels. Some people think they will never have a chance to spend their holiday in a luxury Hotel because they can’t effort. This is true in the West but not in Thailand: here you can find 4 and 5 star hotels and resort offering room sometimes less than 100 Euro a night. In Bangkok you can find gorgeous Hotel by the river with suites at less than 100 Euro. In Koh Samui you can rent a Villa by the beach with their own private pool, in Phuket you can rent beach cottages with 5 star resort facilities.
For people who like to spend their holiday taking care of their body and spirit, a big selection of Hotels and Resorts with Spa Facilities are available in every Thailand destination.

If you still need to reserve your holiday place for the New Year you will have fewer chance to find a free room. In fact from 24 December to 7 January is the busiest time of the year and many hotels and resort are fully booked. This doesn’t mean that you will not find a room. The hotel that today is full, tomorrow they may have a free room for many reasons: some guest check out earlier, some people change or canceled their reservation, etc.
If you want to reserve now an Hotel Room for new year, there are hundreds of website where you can book your hotel, but all those website have a problem in common: they usually send you the confirmation of your reservation within 24 hours. This is not a problem during the year, but for new year time it is a problem.
You spend a lot of time searching for a suitable place, then you make a reservation giving your credit card details, and, after 24 hours you receive an email saying that the hotel you choose is full and you should choose another hotel. This mean that you’ve loosed one more day a you still don’t have a place for your holiday.
What to do next ? search for another hotel and wait again 24 hours to see if the place is available ? this can go on for several days and in the end you may not find your holiday place.
There are few options for finding your holiday place in the high touristic season:
1- Reserve your Hotel through a travel agency. They provide usually full include packages with airplane ticket, transfer, hotel and dinner. This option is usually more expensive and you need to follow the schedule on the program.
2 – Contact the Hotel directly. This is a good option, it is reliable to make a reservation with the luxury five star hotels and Resorts, but not so for low budget or middle range accommodations. I’ve seen many times that small family running hotels, resort or guest house with limited number of guest rooms don’t take so much care of their reservation if they are fully booked.
If you make a reservation and you don’t pay a deposit, you can’t be sure that you will find your room, sending money can take many days to arrive so this option is not the most safe if you need your reservation fast.
3 – Last Minute Reservation system is the most reliable option for instant confirmation of your reservation.
This system show in real time the room availability of thousand of Hotels, Resort, Guest House in hundreds of cities worldwide. You need to reserve a room in Bangkok in the next 2 days ? or you need a room during Christmas ? If you planning to reserve a room within 20 days you can check in real time the room availability, make a reservation by paying a 12% deposit with credit card or even debit card and get your instant confirmation.
In the Hotel Industry rooms availability change every hour, in the high season every minute, people change schedules, some people cancel their trip, some guest extend their stay, some guest change the room category and so on. There are so many reasons that cause the hotel reservation to change continually.
The Hotels associated with Last Minute Reservation System update on daily basis the hotel room availability up to 20 days in advance; it is normal that some room which was previously reserved, may be canceled or the guest didn’t show up at all and suddenly a room get free just at the last moment. Any Hotel manager never want to have free rooms, so they offer special deals for last minute reservation, in this way they get less, but they get full instead of having vacant rooms.

Hotel reviews: Tubkaak Resort, Krabi, Thailand

This is the best beach resort I have been to. I have stayed at Tioman Berjaya resort, Phuket Laguna Beach resort, Tongsai Bay Cottages in Koh Samui, Club Med in Bintan, Hilton in Bali, even Kea Lani in Maui, none of these resorts are as good as Tubkaak Resort. Although Kea Lani is more luxurious, but Tubkaak Resort has better service.


It is located 20 mins away from Ao Nang, the main beach in Krabi. I really like the location, although it is isolated. The new road is just finished, so getting there is very smooth. I am glad to be away from all the traffic and shops selling things I do not like to buy. The beach at the resort is the best in the Krabi coast, even better than the beaches in Tioman. I can sit in the crystal clear water and watch numerous small fishes swimming around me. The waves are gentle, and great for swimming. The best time is in the morning until 1pm, after that it’s low tide and the beach is covered with millions of tiny crabs !

What I like most is the proximity to the magnificent Hong Islands, only 15 mins by longtail boat. I have visited the beaches on Tioman, Redang, Perhentian, Koh Samui, Rawa, but the Hong Island is the most beautiful. I simply love feeding fishes at the beach, with the fishes swimming all around me. It’s like a dream.


The hotel arranged a private longtail boat for me, for 1700 baht return. In the morning I ordered lunch box at 800 baht for 2 person, and at 10:30am when I was ready to leave, the lunch box was already inside the boat waiting for us.

Our flight was at 6pm, and I was very happy that the hotel allowed late check-out at 4pm. When we checked out, the staff already have the bill printed out even before I reached the front desk. I can sit down comfortably to sign the bill. It’s all these small touches that makes a difference.

The service is very good but unobtrusive. I have stayed at Peninsula Bangkok, but this resort has even better service.

Hotel Grounds:

Lovely and small, but just nice for me since I don’t fancy huge resorts. Not child safe. Not recommended for kids under 4 years old, unless you keep a really close watch on them, they may fall over the edges.

Actually we did bring our 4 year old girl with us, she was the only child there but no problem at all. There are no facilities for children, but simply spending time at the beach, kayaking, playing with sand, going to Hong Island, are enough to keep my little girl busy.


I booked a superior room. It’s
