THE TUBKAAK KRABI BOUTIQUE RESORT

Tubkaak, Krabi

The Tubkaak Krabi Boutique Resort is located on a site facing a majestic beach with panoramic views to distant islands. The rear of the site is adjacent to a large national park, and the mountainside adjacent the resort is the source of a natural creek that flows through it. As a result of Nature provision, the entire site is lavishly covered with plants and trees. Its beach is further blessed as the result of the natural stream that flows into it from the valley.

The master plan emphasizes as much preservation as possible of the existing environment. Buildings were clustered with their views directed toward both internal and external spaces. Internal spaces were designed in relation to the existing topography and environment while maintaining guest privacy. Landscape walls were integrated into the design in order to further enhance privacy. Behind the walls is an internal garden where guests can enjoy bathing outdoors without being disturbed by others. While each building was individually designed to fit and to blend into a specific location, they all feature a first floor elevated a meter above the ground.

The curved-edge gables and ridgepoles create a unique character to the roof of the Tabkaak resort. The roof form was inspired by the unique forms of traditional Ko Lae and Naga boats. Detail elements, designed in a tropical vernacular style, appear on items such as bed screens, door locks, and so on, while also maintaining four-star resort hotel standards. Water is retained in the onsite reservoir, with the overflow directed across the site as part of the landscape design.
