Amari Vogue Resort Krabi Review

Amari Vogue Resort Krabi is a 5-star beachfront resort in Krabi situated on the pristine Tub Kaek Beach. The resort offers a peaceful sanctuary, rooms that have breathtaking ocean views and a private beach to watch the distant longtail boats and sunsets. overview of Amari Vogue Resort Krabi


It is a boutique style villa hotel with 57 units that cascade down a west facing slope.

If you want a quiet, relaxing time in a very luxurious environment, with no hassle and all your wishes taken care of, then this is the place for you.

Most of our time are spent lazing by the pools and just generally relaxing.

If you want night life, a choice of restaurants or have a tight budget, stay in or near Ao Nang beach instead.

Amari Vogue Resort Krabi's location

Amari Vogue Resort Krabi is about 45 mins away from the airport where you can be picked up at Krabi airport by the hotel shuttle for 1000 baht.

The resort's location is remote but not isolated and you will appreciate the pristine beaches, the perfect sunsets and wake up to the spectacular views of the Hong Islands each morning.

Amari Vogue Resort directly leads onto a good section of Tubkaak beach, usually deserted so it is not unusual to get whole stretch to yourselves. The sunset view from the beach is fantastic, with the sun setting down amidst the Hong Islands right in front.

Transportation Tips: Amari Vogue Resort to nearby town

Since Amari Vogue Resort Krabi is located far from Krabi town or the busy Ao nang shopping, there is a lot of privacy. But if you feel slightly bored or adventurous, Ao Nang is only 25 minutes away.

The resort do offer complimentary one-way shuttle service to Ao Nang at 2pm daily, the last shuttle back is 6pm. With only 10 seats you would need to book at the reception.

Transportation in a taxi between Ao Nang and Amari will cost you 600-800 baht one way. We were able to find and negotiate a round-trip price with one of the taxi drivers for 700 baht.

There are many great spots to hang out and enjoy a book; by one of the lovely pools, at the Sunset Lounge, on a beach lounger, or simply on the balcony of your room.

There are comfortable pavilions and day beds to relax in and there are about 12-18 sunloungers on the beach itself. During a hot day while you are relaxing by the pool, Amari staff goes round serving out iced water and small desserts, which is a nice touch.

There is Wi-fi internet access in all public areas and there are two PCs in the Sunset Lounge for free Internet access.

 

Amari Vogue Resort Krabi swimming pools

Amari Vogue Resort Krabi swimming poolAmari Vogue Resort Krabi has five pools which has relaxing spa jets built into them. One of the pool is a paddling pool for kids with this amazing elephant shower.

None of the pools are extremely big, but adequate for splash and dips.

There are plenty of sun beds set up around the pools and on the beach.

The lounge chairs are comfortable with sun umbrellas and the staff provided as many towels as we wanted.

Of course, the beach is also right on your doorstep for swimming too. Desserts are serve throughout the day while you relax at the sunbed.

In the afternoon, the staff from the spa come around and give free 5 minute massages, followed by skewers of fruit.

The staff also bring complimentary iced water to you regularly and also offer you snacks and any drinks that you request. You could order food off a menu too.

Amari Vogue Resort Krabi restaurants

Although the taste of food is subjective, you just cannot resist the ever-changing breakfast buffet that was delicious and plentiful. The breads, pastries, muffins are the best.

There are 2 restaurants in Amari Vogue Resort Krabi and Matthias the Chef is often seen mixing around with guests to ensure you are happy with your meal. Both restaurants are reasonably priced for a 5 star hotel.

  1. Lotus Restaurant
    At Lotus Restaurant is a mixture of Thai dishes and international cuisine which was lovely but not exceptional. Prices are equivalent to West European restaurants.
  2. Belini Italian Restaurant
    Italian and seafood specialties are served at Bellini Italian Restaurant. Bellini's is situated right by the beach - a fabulous setting.

    Italian food is only average at the beachfront Bellini's but the atmosphere and service is wonderful. We also enjoyed Happy Hour by the beach every night where a two-for-one deal is on offer.

 

Special tips: restaurants near Amari Resort

If your tastebuds are appealing for more variety, you can follow most of Amari guests who chose to eat at the Tubkaak Boutique resort two doors away (150 meters) or the Tup Kaek Sunset Beach Resort.

Tubkaak Boutique resort restaurant had live music and tasty Thai dishes by the beach. Prices and quality at the Tubkaak are similar to the Amari and they even offer to drop you back to Amari at night.

Tup Kaek Sunset Beach Resort is slightly cheaper but the food quality is not the same league as compared to the Amari and Tubkaak Boutique resort.

Another highly recommended place is The Terrace Restaurant in Klong Muang (near the Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort) about 10 mins away from Amari Resort. Food is cheaper and delicious.

Some of the restaurants offer a pick up service from the Hotel and others offered a drop off service back to the Amari. If you intend to go to the Terraces in Klong Mung check with the front desk as The Amari drove us there and picked us up for free which was great service.

Sunset Lounge
Enjoy your favourite cocktail while enjoying fantastic sea views. Price of drinks is rather expensive for a small quantity.

Amari Vogue Resort Krabi Gym

The gym is well-equipped and well-maintained however it is tucked away into an oddly-shaped small space which makes it very cramped.

Amari Vogue Resort Krabi Spa

Amari Vogue Resort Krabi spaThe Sivara Spa provides a tempting selection of massage, facial and body treatments.

Tried a mind-relaxing massage at the spa on the resort and was completely delighted with the service.

The massage therapist are excellent and well-trained. While considerably more expensive than a massage in Ao nang town (which averages about 450 Baht) the ambience was beautiful, leaving you refreshed and rejuvenated.
