Amari Vogue Krabi is one of over a dozen properties in the high-end Amari Hotels & Resorts portfolio. This attractive beachfront resort is situated by Tubkaek Beach, a relatively peaceful and secluded beach half an hour from the tourist-friendly city of Krabi. The hotel offers a decidedly laidback atmosphere and wonderful views of the Andaman Sea. There are no fewer than three restaurants on site and a good range of smart facilities including two pools, a fitness room and a spa.
There are 57 air-conditioned rooms at the hotel, all with plenty of amenities including tea and coffee making facilities, a ceiling fan, a private balcony or terrace and a satellite TV with DVD player. The décor combines modernity with more traditional Thai themes inspired by the ancient Lanna Kingdom of northern Thailand which dates back to the 13th century. Rooms feature an abundance of wooden furnishings, natural earth tones and intricate, decorative artworks above the beds. In general, most rooms comfortably accommodate up to three people, though the Spa Suites, which have an en-suite treatment room, are for a maximum of two occupants.
There’s a large outdoor swimming pool with sun loungers and a plunge pool, as well as a separate pool for children and a jacuzzi. There’s also a gift shop, a spa that offers an array of treatments and massages and a well-equipped fitness room. Traditional Thai food is on the menu at Lotus, while the beachfront Bellini Italian Restaurant serves up an array of Italian classics and the Sunset Lounge offers lighter meals and pub snacks, as well as a good choice of alcoholic drinks to enjoy while admiring the sunset.
Snorkelling and scuba diving sessions can be arranged, as can boat trips to the Hong Islands, an archipelago of four islands widely considered to be the most beautiful in the region. The hotel runs a shuttle service to the nearby city of Ao Nang for an extra charge; this vibrant resort town is known for its gorgeous stretch of beach, multitude of diving opportunities and pleasant atmosphere. It’s particularly popular with tourists and has plenty of eateries, shops and bars to visit.
Children of all ages are welcome. The hotel offers a babysitting service and extra cots can be provided on request. Due to the waterside nature of the hotel, parents are reminded to ensure that their children remain under constant adult supervision.

Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again

We had a great time - even with the flight between Governors and the coast being two flights and a car! We also experienced a power cut At Nairobi airport on the way home so 2+ hours late taking off. Governors. Wonderful people and dealt with the flight delay very well - taking us back and letting us know that we could stay there if the flight was delayed overnight. The game drives were excellent and our guide (Erick) obviously very experienced and managed to find all the key animals - no rhino in that part of the Masai Mara but everything else in abundance - never seen so many herbivores (many many elephants as well as all the others) as well as two prides of lions. Could not have asked for more. The ‘tent’ was excellent and comfortable and well serviced. The only ‘complaint’ would be that the food - especially dinner - could be improved (I think we got a bit bored of soup as a starter for every meal bar one) and the main courses were not at the same level as Kinondo Kwetu and while all were explained there was no choice offered. The breakfasts were just what was needed after an early game drive. Kinondo Kwetu. What a great location and the welcome when we arrived at just gone 11.00pm was better than you could have ever thought possible - they we’re disappointed that we did not at that time want the full dinner experience! The rooms we’re comfortable. The food was excellent but again no choice was offered - other than for allergy reasons (which we do not have). May be some choice would be nice. Having said that the food we did have was excellent as were the wines (albeit a short list!) and other drinks. There were (as you know) lots of facilities/sports options - but we spent our time relaxing which was exactly what we needed and there were lots of places to do that. Overall. We would go back to both places - perhaps a few more nights at Kinondo Kwetu next time but 3 nights at Governors was perfect for us. Thank you for organising and recommending both places. That you and your colleague for trying to find out about the plane (flat tyre) but communication by the flight company left a lot to be desired (Governors were furious that they were not told and had taken us to the airstrip).

It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve
