Ko Jum, Krabi Province
Koh Pu is still a hidden secret. An island that remains as yet undeveloped, unspoiled, and possibly one of the last deserted islands in a very busy island district.
Finding such places is increasingly difficult these days. There are, as yet, no 7-Elevens, ATMs or large resorts on Koh Pu.
This is a place that’s right in the heart of the busy and over developed islands of southern Thailand, yet remains off the radar for those who have not yet had the fortune of discovering it.

What you will find is nature, a beautiful environment, charming people, and delicious food, especially at Piman Pu, where restaurant quality Thai meals are prepared for you at no additional charge, with food that you purchase.

Piman Pu means “paradise for crabs” – don’t worry the crabs won’t hurt you!

This is a private Thai-style villa for rent – forget staying in...

My husband and I rented Piman Pu Villa for 7 days over Christmas 2015. I have to admit, I selfishly have not written a review yet because I didn't want it to be booked the next time we tried to book it. I know, I'm horrible. The place is truly amazing and we had the best beach holiday we've ever...

Management response:

Thank you for your lovely review. With the new building, you should be able to book over Christmas 17. (I would stay in the room above the new building, which will also contain Kwan's new kitchen). I hope you and your family will come back some day.

A very very special place. Quiet, peaceful and so so relaxing. The house is beautiful and well equipted. The fans and sea breeze were lovely and cooling. The pool is stunning - clean and refreshing. The owner Andrew was very helpful and contactable. However the best thing about this place is the on-site housekeeper and chef Kwan. Kwan and her...

Management response:

Gregor - thanks for your wonderful review. We are so lucky that Kwan and Bao are at Piman Pu. They are truly wonderful kind people, and Kwan's food is truly amazing. The relationships with so many people on that island are a large part of what makes it special. Thanks again - Andrew

We spent over 2 weeks at Piman Pu. It was exactly as you see on the pictures and even better. The trip started with a romantic long boat ride at sunset followed by heavently local seafood dinner cooked by Kwan, our trusty housekeeper. It just got better with each day. We had extended family visiting us during the stay and...

About the neighbourhood
Koh Jum is a quiet, peaceful and friendly tropical getaway place. Koh Jum has a number of different names. It is known as Koh Jum (‘remember island‘) in the southern part, and Koh Pu (‘crab island‘) in the northern part. The reason for this comes from the two main villages which have the same names. The island is 13 kilometres from the mainland and about 15 kilometres to the north east of Koh Phi Phi.
Koh Jum will suit those who want to chill out, have a vacation and get away from the fast pace of life. It is a place where you sleep listening to the sound of the sea, and where you don’t need a watch.
The island was connected to the mains power grid in 2009. There are no ATMs, Seven-11′s, or supermarkets on the island.
Getting around
We would be happy to arrange longtail boats for island hopping.
There's also a speedboat which can take guests to Koh Rok from Baan Koh Jum - please let us know if you're intetersted.
Car not needed
