Good views and a swimming pool
One of a small group of places on Ko Jum that could be considered proper resorts, Koh Jum Resort has several bamboo and teakwood villas perched on stilts over the southern end of Ting Rai beach.
Along with great porches that seem to hover over the sea, the cheapest rooms have high ceilings, soft lighting, several swing-open windows that open to the sea breeze and natural touches like polished bamboo floors that stretch a bit when you walk on them. The larger villas have a similarly exotic feel but come with glass doors opening onto bigger terraces to go with TVs and fridges, but no air-con. All rooms have wall-mounted fans and safes. The uniformed staff member who greeted us was very friendly and quick to show us around. Along with a terrace restaurant, the resort offers a small pool with a waterfall that splashes into an even smaller pool.
