We stayed here at the beginning of April. A really lovely hideaway resort serving the most delicious food, run like clockwork by Valerie, Oon and team. Rooms are beautiful, we did miss air conditioning it takes getting used to, and it is quite noisy with all the jungle critters. However you soon relax into it and go on slow mode... More

We just left OonLee and we wish we could go back IMMEDIATELY!!! I can't imagine any place in Thailand where I would rather stay. The Resort is so beautiful and remote. The Island Koh Jum is the first place in Thailand where I didn't see trash anywhere- the little villages are adorable and it smells like flowers and forest. The... More

We were staying at another resort along the beach but came here for dinner, it was a long walk up the steps but definitely worth it! Beautiful authentic curries, fresh fruit shakes and amazing crepes! Staff were welcoming and funny, if only we could of stayed in Koh Jum longer to try more of the menu!

I stayed in OonLee bungalows as part of a trip around Thailand in March '15 and it was the best value for money to quality/comfort accommodation that we stayed in for the whole two weeks. We had a 6 person bungalow at the top end of the hill with beautiful views of the sea. Rooms were spacious, with fans, and... More

Our favourite place in Thailand. We loved everything about it, so much so that we returned for our last couple of days after visiting Koh Lanta. Valerie, Oon and all the team are friendly, helpful and efficient without being intrusive. We stayed in 'Family', perfect for 2 adults and 2 kids, lovely clean room with fans and nets (we were...

We really enjoyed out stay here - a restful place where you have no choice but to slow down and relax. Booking and arranging details with the owner Valerie was very easy, clear prompt responses via email. Valerie was also very happy to help us arrange our transfer on at the end of our stay. Plenty of info given on... More

We stayed in the cheapest bungalow (700bth/night) which was a great value for money! Interior is beautiful and everything has been chosen with a taste. Food in the restaurant is great - especially the daily specials and they also have pretty impressive wine list :)! Pricing is high but we also got a lot with our money so it was... More

This is a place for pure relaxation. If you want nightclubs, noise etc look elsewhere. The location is wonderful, and arrival is amazing being ferried across from the ferry in their longtail boat (be warned you will need to scramble across rocks as there is no pier) Having climbed up to the restaurant area at the top of the resort,...

We spent 5 nights at Oonlee, after a two week road trip, looking for relaxation. And this is just what we got! We enjoyed lying in the hammocks at the beach, having drinks at the bar watching the sun go down and having delicious, fresh dinners at the restaurant. Many have already given detailled descriptions of how beautiful this place... More

what a beautiful place to stay on our first trip to Thailand. Truly magical. Our concrete bungalow was cool and spacious, and clean! Our verandah with hammock was so luxurious. Eating there was a pleasure. It felt like you were in a family kitchen! We made new friends from all over the world. Drank cocktails. Played pool, and most importantly,... More
