In business since 1981, the venerable Tubtim Resort has done an excellent job of maintaining older rooms and adding some new ones from time to time.

Photo of Tubtim Resort
Stretching over a gradual hill from the centre of Ao Tubtim all the way to the southern rocks, the resort dominates the bay.

With footpaths meandering through flower bushes, trees and dark-wood bungalows that are spaced fairly apart from one another, the resort should be commended for blending into the natural environment when other large resorts built massive concrete stacks. The cheapest bungalows with ceiling fans, cold-water bathrooms and small porches retain a rustic charm despite a bit of wall mould. 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, pricier bungalows have a minimalist design to go with ceiling fans, air-con, LCD TVs, safes and large bathrooms with modern appliances. Along with several windows and cotton curtains, these have wide glass doors opening onto wide front porches with wood furniture. Less inviting, but a lot cheaper, are the sky blue concrete air-con villas with the same fixings. All rooms appeared well kept, and guests staying in air-con rooms get an included breakfast.

Tubtim also has an ATM, free WiFi, volleyball net, restaurant and kayaks for rent. Possibly due to the laidback atmosphere and family-style operating methods, tourism fatigue doesn’t seem to have set in with the helpful staff. Rates can be discounted in low season and/or on weekdays. Large groups of Thais often fill the place, so we suggest booking ahead of time on weekends and holidays.
