“Little piece of Paradise”
Reviewed 8 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Very nice and quiet place where we stayed 3 days. We really enjoyed the swimming pool, the nice sandy beach in front of the villa and the piecefull life on the island. Thai cooking preprared by our host is lovely and you can attend cooking lessons. It is an ecofriendly villa surrounded by the tropical forest.
It was a great experience to start our holidays and relax!

“Wow!”
Reviewed 18 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We arrived here on the 2nd January and had 6 nights of perfect peace and tranquility at a beautiful villa on a stunning island. This stretch of beach is how we remember Thailand from the 19990s. Ko Jum/Pu might not be as well known as some of its more developed and noisy neighbours but has so much more going for it.

Lazy days were spent around the villa and on the beach, this is the prefect spot for anyone wanting to kick back and relax. There are a few bungalow operations with restaurants to eat and drink at and on a couple of days we took the longtail boat down to a different part of the island and had the day out.

The villa itself worked so well for us. Ya, the housekeeper, looks after anything you need, is an excellent cook and will provide whatever meals you ask for. We ate breakfast at the villa each day and then one of either lunch or dinner. Ya will also do any laundry you have and arrange any trips out.

The villa sits comfortably in its surrounding, its impressive design is combined with a rustic simplicity. It has everything we require for a holiday rental, is spacious and we particularly enjoyed the evenings sat on the raised terrace looking out over the garden. The swimming pool is a good size and is a welcome option to have particularly when the tide is out and the rocks are exposed on the beach.

We had a wonderful 6 nights at Piman Pu, we would recommend it to anyone looking to chill out somewhere off the beaten track and we very much hope to return one day.

This was an extended family holiday and we wanted something different that we could organise ourselves and visit where we wanted. We found Piman Pu and loved the look of it - beautiful, secluded, self catering (although Ya is the most wonderful cook!), on the beach and with it's own pool and gardens. Perfect.

We were picked up by long boat and had about a 45min sea ride past lots of beautiful islands and were put down right on the beach outside the house. There was a long stretch of empty golden beach, with a small coral reef which is exposed during low tide. We were greeted by Ya, who looks after the house, and is absolutely amazing. She helped us find our way around, arranged a boat trip to other islands for snorkelling (with a packed lunch) and even took us on the back of her motorbike into the local village.

We spent 5 days there and it was truly magical. There were no other people around (although it was low season and along the beach there is evidence of high season bars). The owner has built himself a beautiful home that is outstanding to look at, extraordinary to be in and in a fantastic location. The house itself is made from local wood, and is set mainly above ground. There is a double bedroom on the ground floor under the main house which is pretty self contained with it's own outside bathroom. The imposing outside staircase takes you to the large deck and main house where there is the reception room, kitchen and 2 further bedrooms both of which are delightful, one on a mezzanine and one as a separate room. This was absolutely no problem for us, but possibly with 3 couples it could be. The large deck outside was great to sit on to read and look down across the pool and further out to the sea which is just beyond. The gardens have been painstakingly laid and are stunning and exotic. They surround a gorgeous pool which is a perfect temperature and heaven at night time as it is lit up, and has power jets at one end. The hammock next to the pool was always in demand too.

The owner has provided dvds (plenty) if you want to watch tv at night, although we didn't need to - we found a pack of cards and had great fun. We asked Ya if she would cook for us as she is so good, and were treated to the most amazing food that I have eaten anywhere. That was such a treat in itself! She even gave me a cooking lesson. If I had one criticism it would be about the chairs on the deck! We were reading a lot and they were not comfortable to sit on for long periods as we spent nearly all our time outside. They look great though! Sorry as I really don't want to say anything negative about Piman!! And it's such a small thing....

Piman Pu is not for people who want a sanitary, air conditioned hotel. It is for people who want to have some peace and quiet surrounded by incredible beauty and feel that you are part of the island - not just visiting it.

I would go again tomorrow, and wish I could. Thank you Andrew, and thank you Ya.

We have just returned from our 2nd visit to Piman Pu this year alone. The house is wonderful, the pool and garden amazing, Ya and the family downstairs, who look after your needs while you are there are fantastic, which all adds up to a "small piece of heaven"
