Tup Kaek Sunset Beach Resort
Oozing a laid-back vibe that complements its location away from the crowds, Tup Kaek Sunset Beach Resort is a true beachfront hideaway. The hotel is found on a stretch of golden sand that’s beautifully quiet when compared to the busier resorts along this coast. There are boat trips from the beach to the dramatic karsts of the Hong Islands across the water, and livelier resorts like Ao Nang are a half-hour taxi ride away for shopping and dining. But the main attraction of the hotel, however, is its peaceful ambience. For couples looking to get away from it all, this is the ultimate low-key escape.
Spend the day with a book by the lagoon-style pool, or wander down to the soft sand beach where you’re likely to be one of the few people around. Staff are warm and as friendly as you might expect at such a homely hotel, and at the all-day Sunset Restaurant there’s international and Thai cuisine on the menu so you don’t have to deal with the crowds if you’d rather enjoy a quiet evening of conversation. For the epic sunsets that the hotel is named for, there’s the beachside Red Leaf Bar where you can watch the sky change colour over the rocky silhouettes of the Hong Islands over drinks.
Modern in style, the hotel’s rooms offer great value in this area of Krabi. Interiors are simple with classic white sheets and wooden furnishings, with Deluxe Rooms overlooking the main pool and bungalow-style Deluxe Garden Rooms. Deluxe Pool Access Room are newer and have direct access to a shared pool from the terrace, while a Deluxe Beachfront Room is your home-away-from-home by the sea, offering access to the beach from your terrace.
