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

This place is fantastic so long as you're willing to forgo your creature comforts! Great tranquil and outstanding food but no air con, hot water or much of anything else within walking distance. Recommended.

Forget Ao Nang. Forget Railay Beach. Forget Phi Phi. Forget even Ko Lanta (I love Ko Lanta). This is the sort of place you dream of for that perfect get-away. Beaches with NO ONE on it. Great sleep. Excellent food. Waking up with the sun. Going to bed with the sun. Valerie was welcoming, helpful, friendly, professional, above and beyond... More

This is paradise on a still quiet island in Thailand. I hope it will stay like that cause there are not many quiet and nearly paradisly untouched spots like this beautiful island next to Krabi Town. Thx to the owners Valerie & Oon and Rack (we spell him LUCK) the best barkeeper at the marvellous sunsetdownerbar. All the best to... More

This were our first stop on our vacation. Tired and weary we got dropped of on a steep dirt road and followed the signs. But what hid on the other side of the jungle was pure bliss. Oonlee is a beautiful place, the bungalows were spacious, clean, comfortable and had huge verandas with hammocks. And a nice breeze. The beach... More

We stayed in Nemo and while it is a fine bungalow and closest to the ocean it has no view. There are trees impeding. So for it to be the most expensive was quite a shock. There does seem to be a better breeze here though. After seeing how far away from food and close to the loud bar our... More

We have been fortunate to have stayed in many hotels some at the very top price wise and some not. Oon Lee at Koh Jum ranks as the very best of all. We can only echo what other visitors have said. Our bungalow 'Nemo' was overlooking the beach perfect for my somewhat unfit husband (although by the end he was... More

Very nice location with clean and well kept accommodation. Just be aware that there are 70 steep steps from beach to restaurant and with bad knees some people might struggle. Both Oon and Valerie were very nice and friendly although the attempts to sell boat trips at breakfast time and forgetting one or two meal orders took away from our... More

We stayed 4 nights in garden view bungalow, and can say that biggest mistake was not to book more nights, as we were not able to extend our stay. Oon & Valerie have created something truly unique here - Like many mentioned, the passion and friendliness is something very rarely found. You are greeted like a friend, served with your... More
