Piman Pu Private Pool Villa on Luboh Beach

Villa -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
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...

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.
