My husband and I just left Sun Smile having stayed there for 5 nights. We have just started a 5 month travelling adventure and decided that Koh Jum would be our first stop so we could relax after our London life. The reviews we had read online prior to our visit sounded like exactly what we needed: quiet, secluded and... More

Basic accommodation but if you want to relax in a friendly environment then you won't find much better places. The owners were friendly and helpful. For example the washing basin in our hut was a little leaky. We advised the owners and they immediately offered us a new hut. The food was good but we also ate and drank in... More

I had a very nice and peaceful stay at sun smile. There wasn't much to do, but for me that was exactly what I needed. Just to chill by the sea, read books and enjoy the relaxing and quiet atmosphere of koh jum. The beach is really nice, no rocks, almost isolated, very beautiful. Room was very basic, but had...

Came here for 2 days, stayed for 10 days. Bungalows very clean (rooms cleaned, fresh bedding and towels every 2 days). Good food, friendly staff, very efficient service. Very peaceful beach, easy to get to villages if desired. The bar and restaurant close at 9pm but other 2 on beach open until late.

This hotel is not fancy, there's really no effort from the staff to talk to the guest or offer suggestions. The rooms are basic and the bed is alright. House cleaning is done on the second day but it would be nice if it was done everyday since the room gets sandy. There's also cool monkeys around Even though the... More

We wanted to go to Koh Jum and booked the ferry tickets and even asked if it was possible to go even if we had no accommodation. They assured us that it was fine and we proceeded to go to the ferry when suddenly the guy at the ferry office in Krabi started talking us into having to call the... More

Peaceful and relaxing stay. Beach is almost private, only 3 other bungalows on this stretch. Easy to walk over the hill at the back to reach the road where there are a few shops, a bakery and a really good little restaurant. Owners are friendly and helpful. You can hire a bike and drive around the island.

Sun Smile is a cute getaway right on the beach. It has great views right from your window and private beaches! No body, and I mean no one is walking on that beach, it feels very secluded.. even lonely at times, but its a great escape from the touristy thailand. Keep in mind this beach is not white sand or...

Was there during low season, lovely peace and quiet. The whole beach to yourself! Food is ok. Lovely staff BUT got scammed on room price. Im solo, got a bungalow for 2 and was given 400 Baht per night. Verbal agreement. When i paid on last day it was 500 baht per night. So pay before hand!
