From the minute we approached the beach at koh jum lodge in our long tail boat transfer we had a good feel about the stay. The welcome is professional and personal and we were made to feel at home easily. Our beach front lodge was a magical experience spotlessly clean and elevated above the gardens it was an exciting and relaxing place to stay all in one. The security of the property took a bit of getting used to as there was no need to shut the doors or windows but it was great to listen to the gentle sound of the sea as you lay in bed. We ate in the restaurant every night because the menu changes every day and the quality of the food was excellent. Lunches were also excellent and the shakes and fruit drinks were superb. The restaurant was more expensive than most other places we have eaten at in Thailand but for us the quality of the food outweighed this. Also as the week went on our hosts were generous with their hospitality with complimentary drinks. I think we had only two minor complaints. Number one was that the rooms did not have coffee/ tea making facilities and we do like a cuppa ! Next time we would take a travel kettle. Number two complaint was that we had to leave!

We would like to thank Jean-Michel, his wife Jane and their charming team for the wonderful and relaxed time we had at their lodge. They were always there if you needed help. After the well organized airport transfer we (two couples) had a warm welcome at the boat and our host personally showed us our spacious beachfront bungalows. Our secret fear that without air conditioning it might get too hot inside was needless. The architecture was airy (the windows without glass) and it was wonderful to fall into sleep under the mosquito net with a the light breeze coming from the sea and directly through the open windows. The bungalows as well as the open restaurant with the bar and library corner are beautifully decorated, the bathrooms with wooden showers are well maintained and clean. E.g. one of the many nice detail is that all electric cables in the buildings are covered by bamboo strips. Hammocks are not only found on the personal veranda but all over the place. Among the palm trees there are deck chairs, and small shady pavilions to enjoy magnificent views of the sea and especially the amazing sunsets over Koh Phi Phi that can be seen at the horizon. The beach is clean and even at low tide it is possible to swim in front of the resort so we did not try the pool.
Thanks to the (still) small number of resorts we never experienced such empty beaches during high season time. Visitors should be well aware that the small villages on the island are still mainly inhabited by the local fishermen and the tiny shops offer little more than their daily supply. The locals are very friendly and curious. When we explored the island on bicycles we sometimes felt like attractions ourselves as there were people and children coming along to have a look at us visitors. In the villages you may get some food, sunscreen, mosquito shield and beach equipment but that's all. Needless to say that we did not miss none of the typical tourist places and shops. Thank's to the lodge's wonderful restaurant with the great choice of Thai and Western dishes - and the changing special offers of the day - we only now and then passed at other restaurants or bars of the neighboring resorts or in the village.
There are some free bikes at the lodge that can be lent for small excursions. If you like long beach walks you may take a tuc tuc to return for little money. One of the highlights was the daylong snorkel trip on a longtail boat to the nearby islands of Koh Phi Phi, Mosquito and Bamboo island. Also on this trip we profited from Jean Michel's perfect organization which includes that the boat was exclusively for us. There were beach towels, snorkel equipment and there was a picnic at a small beach that was served with a small table and a beach mattress. All these tiny details make the difference from the many other crowdy excursion boats that can be seen floating those islands. If you should get a stiff neck from snorkeling you may drop in at one of the massage places that are run in almost every resort. We checked the one at Koh Jum Lodge and at the Koh Jum Beach Villas next door which I preferred. Also the ladies there speak English and therefor were able to communicate about preferences.
This resort is certainly a bit pricier than most other resorts. Compared to those bargain places with more than basic facilities that are still existing around this place is worth every extra cent!

When you get there, on boat directly on the beach in front of the lodge, you know that you have come to the right place.

The bungalows are really beautiful, comfortable and nicely decorated and the beach view from the balcony is wonderful. The staff is very friendly and the food is excellent, especially the suggested fish meals that are different every day. Finally, the whole island is very peaceful and allows you to quietly enjoy the charms of southern Thailand.

We stopped here on the last stretch of our honeymoon and it was wonderful to forget time. Jean Michel personally greeted us as we got off the longtail boat and showed us to our ocean-view bungalow. At first I was wondering, "Where is the TV? Where is the air conditioner?" But after one night, I embraced the whole point of this eco-resort: unplug, read and relax in the hammock! Sure we could have paid the same for a developed resort, but that would have meant sharing the beach with hordes of tourists. Sure we could have found cheaper eats, but that would be missing out on coconut shakes, which I had pretty much every day. I had the best fried fish I had in a long while. And the lodge has one of the nicest stretches of beach on the island.

A beautiful little retreat with beautiful flowers and trees. The bungalows are very spacious. The staff are really nice. One day when we brought back a coconut we gave it to the chef she opened it for us and we had fresh coco milk. The pool is nice and warm. The restaurant is great. Try the creme brûlée and the fried rice!
