Koh Jum Beach Villas sets the highest sustainable luxury benchmark for island resort living in Thailand and has won numerous awards recognising this. Located in the heart of Krabi province, the resort is spread out across a glorious 700-metre stretch of pure white sand, with breathtaking views of the Phi Phi National Marine Park.
Each of the 19 luxury villas has been individually designed, with views of either the lush tropical gardens or the aquamarine sea. Either way, be sure to soak up those views from your private garden or terrace, as standard in all villas. The villas are truly exceptional, with a sleek, boutique design that celebrates local culture while offering colour and vibrancy.
The cuisine concept is centred around using fresh organic ingredients, many of which come from the on-site organic garden. Guests are treated to Thai cuisine with the option of international cuisine, with Italian, French, and Mediterranean dishes all represented. The restaurant here seeks to evoke the Thai spirit of hospitality, where the generous sharing of food is ritualistic. This fabulous approach to life is a central theme at the restaurant at Koh Jum Beach Villas – it’s a celebration of food.
The resort follows a strict eco-policy that makes it an industry leader for responsible travel. Every aspect of the resort is catered for to minimise the effects the hotel has on the environment and to positively contribute to the local community. This includes low-energy lighting, using recyclable materials wherever possible, donating to local charities, hiring local workers, and growing food locally, among many other things.
Koh Jum itself is a secluded paradise offering one of the last places in Thailand to truly experience those castaway vibes. On the island, there are plenty of activities to keep you entertained, with rock-climbing, mountain-biking, island-hopping, and a trip through the mangrove forest all available for guests. Furthermore, the Phi Phi National Marine Park is just a longtail boat ride away, with some of the world’s best snorkelling and scuba diving on offer.
