Tubtim resort

In business since 1981, Tubtim Resort is among the oldest places to stay on the island, but the consistently helpful and relaxed staff has done an excellent job of maintaining older rooms and adding tastefully done new ones from time to time.

Stretching over a gradual hill from the centre of Ao Tubtim all the way to the southern cove, the resort dominates the bay. However, well spaced out natural wood bungalows and footpaths that meander through palms and flower bushes keep the resort from feeling too imposing. The cheapest bungalows with ceiling fans, cold water bathrooms and small porches retain a rustic charm despite the bit of wall mould in the one we checked out. For a bit more cash, newer hot water fan bungalows have shiny hardwood floors, fridges, desks, huge windows and wide front porches. Closer to the beach, air-con wood bungalows have an elegant minimalist design to go with mod-cons like ceiling fans, LCD TVs, safes and large bathrooms with modern appliances. Along with several windows and soft cotton curtains, they have wall-size glass doors that open onto some truly massive front porches with wood deck furniture. Less inviting, but cheaper, are the sky blue concrete air-con villas with the same fixings. All rooms appeared very well kept and linens smelled fresh. Breakfast is included in all rates, and the excellent restaurant is open all day long. Tubtim also has an ATM, free WiFi and kayaks for rent. Note that while the advertised rates are fixed, they can be discounted in low season and/or on weekdays, and they may go up during high season and on weekends. The resort does not accept email bookings.
