Fantastic tour company. We booked and paid online before our trip. We went on the Seculded Beach and Turtle Sanctuary boat tour. Our guide, Garfield, was great. Friendly, informative, and happy to chat about various aspects of thai life. We had the trip to ourselves (2 people). The longboat ride was so peaceful and the beach at Na Yak was beautiful. Lunch was provided and was delicious and plentiful. A really lovely day out. Thank you. We had initially booked the Phang Na Sightseeing, but it has a minimum group of four, and as no one else booked it, it wasn't able to run, unfortunately. However they offered us a full refund with no problem at all. We asked to transfer to the secluded beach trip and it was sorted straight away. I don't know if it was already booked and someone dropped out, or if they organised it for us at less than 24 hours notice, but we were very impressed with the customer service.

We had a wonderful trip with “nine” (shortened Thai name) and our two young children (one and three) who were well looked after by all the crew. We did the local reef snorkelling tour around the tip of Laem Ao Kham and then to the beautiful secluded beach, which is a great trip for all ages but certainly suited our young children. The lunch provided was delicious and plentiful. Our guide was really knowledgeable and keen to tell us about the local wildlife, history and Thailand in general, for which we were very appreciative. I was especially glad to see their “no plastic” lunch and water supplies and that they are doing their best to provide an eco friendly tour, as well as supporting local incomes. Can’t recommend highly enough

Der Bootsausflug mit Discovery Travel war der absolute Wahnsinn! Unser Guide Man war nicht nur Mega nett, sondern hat auch alles super organisiert. Vom entspannten Picknick am Traumstrand bis zum Schnorcheln am coolen Korallenriff - einfach top! Das Meer war so klar und der weiße Sandstrand einfach perfekt. Man hat uns super eingewiesen und darauf geachtet, dass die Korallen unversehrt bleiben. Die Unterwasserwelt war der Hammer, so viele bunte Korallen und Fische! Und die Fahrt auf dem Longtailboot hat dem Ganzen die krönende Atmosphäre gegeben. Ehrlich, besser geht's wirklich nicht! Top Ausflug mit wenig Leuten am Boot 6 Personen) und vor Ort (vielleicht 20 Personen).

One of our very best days in Thailand was spent doing the local snorkeling tour with Discovery Travel - Khao Lak. Our tour guide was brilliant, with a vast knowledge on local biodiversity and culture. The snorkeling was excellent - a fantastic array of colorful fish and corals. They keep the tour groups small, with a maximum of 6 people, which means the day feels a bit more personalized and relaxed compared to a different tour we did with a larger company. The amazing, homemade Thai food for lunch by the beach was the icing on the cake to this incredible day. If you’re thinking about booking a trip, do it! :)

Good to Know

Natural Sea Breezes in Villa Design
The villas are designed to embrace the natural elements, including refreshing sea breezes. Although equipped with air-conditioning, we encourage guests to relish the cooling ocean winds for a truly immersive coastal experience.
Natural Vibes with Outdoor Showers
Many of the villas feature outdoor or semi-outdoor showers, enhancing the natural experience of your stay. As the villas are designed to embrace the surrounding environment, they are open-air upon guests’ arrival. We encourage guests to appreciate the natural surroundings, which may include harmless geckos, bugs, beetles, and mosquitoes within the villas. Rest assured, these creatures are a part of the tropical ecosystem and pose no harm.
Sustainable Amenities
Koh Jum Beach Villas prioritize sustainability. Complimentary soap and amenities are provided to help reduce single-use product consumption.
Sustainable Linen Practices
To minimize the resort’s carbon footprint, bed sheets, towels, and linens are changed every 3 days. However, upon request, staff are happy to accommodate more frequent changes. Simply inform our Guest Service Team during your stay, and we’ll ensure your preferences are met.
Mangrove Activities
While it’s possible to kayak at any time in the mangroves around Koh Jum, mangrove planting can only be done at low tide. For the full experience, we recommend discussing timings with the resort upon arrival to plan your stay accordingly.
Cash Convenience on the Island
Discover the local charm of Koh Jum with its quaint shops and restaurants. While ATMs are not available on the island, some local shops offer “cash back” services for a fee. We recommend withdrawing Thai Baht before your arrival for seamless island exploration.
Tide-Dependent Beach Activities
Embark on a unique beach experience with exposed reefs during low tide. While swimming may not always be possible, seize the opportunity to stroll along the scenic 5km beach and explore captivating rock pools. The exposed reefs maintain the island’s seclusion, deterring noisy day trip boats. The beach offers a mix of rocky and sandy areas for diverse coastal adventures.
Beachfront Location with Sandfly Precautions

Experience the ultimate beach-front getaway at Koh Jum Beach Villas, nestled directly along the pristine shores. While you soak up the sun and sea, we recommend taking precautions against sandflies during the evenings.

Connectivity and Entertainment
Disconnect from the ordinary and reconnect with nature. While most villas do not have televisions, all are equipped with fibre optic internet cables, ensuring connectivity amidst the serene surroundings.
Respectful Dining Experience
As a predominantly Muslim island, the resort does not serve pork, respecting traditional Cheo Lay beliefs.
