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.

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 populous condos or resort ridden hotels – get back to nature, connect with locals, stay on the beach, rediscover tranquility and solitude, but in comfort. This traditional ecotourism Thai-style beach villa has comfortable sleeping facilities and is equipped with a modern kitchen and bathrooms. The house is elevated, and equipped with fans, and with the sea breezes air-conditioning is not necessary. The location is beautiful, majestic and peaceful. The villa is set in its own tropical garden setting with direct access to near private Luboh beach on unspoilt Koh Pu. From the villa are also stunning views to Koh Lanta and to the mountain which dominates Koh Pu at 395 metres. Koh Pu is accessed by a beautiful boat crossing. At high tide the boat can come to the beach right to the front of the house. Luboh Beach (Ao Luboh) has bungalow style resort accommodation, which is friendly and inexpensive, but ‘Piman Pu’ is the only private villa for rent with its own pool and garden currently on Koh Pu’s Luboh Beach. The main bedroom has air-conditioning - we plan to have 2 air-conditioned bedrooms by mid 2020More

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.
