The Tubkaak Krabi Boutique Resort faces a majestic beach with panoramic views of distant islands. A large national park lies to the rear and an adjacent mountainside is the source of a natural creek that flows through the resort. As a result, the entire site is lavishly covered with plants and trees, and its beach is blessed with a natural stream that flows into the sea from the valley.


The master plan emphasizes as much preservation as possible of the existing environment. Buildings were clustered with their view 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 to further enhance a sense of seclusion. Behind the walls is an internal garden where guests can enjoy outdoor bathing without being disturbed. While each building was individually designed to fit and to blend in with their specific location, they all feature an elevated floor a meter above the ground. 

The curved-edge gables and ridgepoles create a unique character to the roofs of the Tabkaak resort. This 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.
