we stayed twice at the Ko Jum Beach Villas. Villas are very nice. Food at the restaurant is delicious and not expensive. Dive Center at the Beach Villas is excellent. But there is not a lot to do on this island besides going on dive trips or relax at the beach

It is rarely find the low cost budget beachfront accommodation in Krabi Province or any places in Thailand but you can find it in Ko Jum. However, it isn't luxury or convenient as the other places. Anyhow,you will get what you want whether you are looking for somewhere to sunbath, kick up your feets and stuck on the peaceful enviroment.... More

We stayed here 5 years ago and this year we decided to do Koh Lanta, had no idea Lanta was so developed and crowded. If you want a nice... More

This is a great little beach, smallish cove, tree lined beach with the odd monkey playing around. A cosy restaurant nestles on the beach, a massage bure and a few palm roofed shelters line up on the sand. So easy to spend the day here, and with a bit of shade on offer is even easier.

If you know what you are getting... More

We stayed here for 3 days and it was like being on a desert island. Everything from the hotel to the beach and the relaxed atmosphere was perfect. The sky is fantastic for star gazing as well!
