Just a short boat ride from Krabi, on a tiny island at the edge of Koh Phi Phi National Marine Park, you’ll find Koh Jum Beach Villas. Shaded by rustling tropical gardens and fringed by two and a half miles of clean, uninterrupted sandy beach, you’ll feel a million miles from home. The beautifully presented villas are inspired by traditional Thai houses, with spacious, airy interiors and a casual beachy style that feels both relaxing and contemporary.
Big four poster beds dominate the master bedrooms, where you can wake up to panoramic ocean views. Indoor lounges and open air terraces are perfect for enjoying private in-villa breakfasts, and offer plenty of space to relax. Some villas have generous private pools, and the shared freeform pool has a fabulous view of the ocean as well as a barbecue nearby for sunset snacks. Each villa has self-catering facilities - convenient if you’re staying with family - and the Koh Jum’s restaurant serves local favourites prepared using fresh ingredients grown on site and caught in the nearby seas.
Ideally located just an hour by car and boat from Krabi International Airport, Koh Jum Beach Villas is far enough away to feel like a hidden gem.

Discover what to expect from staying at Koh Jum Beach Villas
Thailand has many picturesque, sandy beaches dotted around its shores, drawing visitors from all over the world and, inevitably, tourism has increased over the years. Think back a few years to when Thailand was simply a land of blissfully deserted beaches and jungle-clad islands, and that’s where you’ll find yourself at Koh Jum (or close enough anyway). Hidden away from mainstream tourism, it offers a taste of what Thailand used to be, albeit with a slice more luxury.
For avid divers, or those keen to learn, there are some excellent diving opportunities around the Marine Park, and the resort has partnered with a local dive centre so you can easily get involved. If you would rather stay on the surface, you can try snorkelling, kayaking, fishing, cycling, or take a long-tail boat trip to nearby islands for a day of discovery. A spa and massage service offers an enticing range of treatments using natural products made to traditional Thai beauty recipes.
The little jungle-covered island of Koh Jum is largely undeveloped. The resort employs local people from nearby villages for most of its roles, and it’s been designed with an intelligent blend of comfortable habitat and eco-sensitivity. It's also proud partners with Trash Hero, a community-based organisation whose mission is 'to bring communities together to clean and reduce waste'. This is just one of the many ways they demonstrate their commitment to being eco-friendly and sustainable.
