Stayed at Oon Lee Bungalows for 3 night. The resort itself was lovely, set up on the hill with the bungalows in the front with sea views and the back ones with garden views. They have a resturant which serves both French and Thai foods. As an FYI they do take credit cards. To get to the resort the ferry comes in and is met by long boats which you than transfer with your luggage to the boats (on the water) and are taken to the resort. For people who are thinking of staying you must have a moderate level of fitness, as you have to climb to and from the boat, you have to climb up to the resturant first to check in and than depending on where you are staying either back down or up to get to your bungalows. The part that was frustrating for us and was never really expressed in reviews was how far away it is from everything. If you are there just to stay at the resort and not explore it's lovely, but to really explore the area you need to rent a motorbike, however the road from the resort is a dirt road with pot holes and very uneven surfaces so you have to be able to ride with a certain amount of comfort. Please consider the rainy season and night time as well. To reach the first bit of paved roads you could google map the stone bar which is situated next to the paved part. Renting motorbikes was an event, please be very careful as they do not offer insurance and may charge you for damage that you didn't even do which happened to us.

Stayed here for about 10 days. It is a perfect place to relax and drift away. Far away from traffic and noise set up in the jungle with a marvelous view over the sea.
The bungalows are simple but tastefully designed, clean and there is everything you need!
The bar on the beach is led by the owner’s sons and I cannot imagine a better spot for a perfectly mixed sundowner. Or more.
Owners and staff are very helpful and friendly and take care of everything very well.
The food in the restaurant is amazing and for Thailand they offer a very nice wine menu!

We will definitely come back!

A lot of reviews about the hike up to reception and the wildlife in the rooms in the evening, ignore them! The walk up to reception is made easy by the gentleman who carries your bags all the way up for you. The only other time we went up to the top was for food, which was amazing so the worked up appetite was welcome.

This is the nicest island bungalows we have stayed in yet. Valerie and Oon are lovely people to deal with, they remember you by name and are honestly the most helpful people ever.

The beach is rocky however if you head out directly infront of the bungalows when the tide is in you can easily swim out past the rocks to cool down in the afternoon heat.

The pop up bar by the beach is perfect for a few cheap cocktails whilst watching the sunset before heading upstairs for dinner.

We strongly reccommend this for staying if you're a couple travelling the island and don't fancy one of the beaches that are to lively. This is the perfect balance!

We only stayed 2 nights with Valerie, Oon and their team but we wished we were staying longer.

The bungalows were lovely- yes you have a few bugs, and ants however their is a net over the bed which is perfectly fine. We stayed in island accommodation in Cambodia paying much more and the standards were much lower!! The shower is hot..result! Some of our mainland showers haven’t been. The breakfast was delicious so definitely add it to your booking! The food in the evening was also lovely and the service and atmosphere was very nice.

Valerie and Oon clearly take great pride and this is passed on to their team and the sons who we met. There is a beach bar at the bottom that gives you a great chill zone 5pm onwards and a beautiful sunset! 100baht cocktails also :)

The only thing to note is if you have mobility issues there is a lot of stairs up to the top, I myself have hyper mobile joints and just needed to take it a little slower! - the guys are more than helpful with taking your heavy bags!!

There are lots of activities for you to do if you wish, we just wanted a full chill out few days.

People have noted that the beach in front is rocky, yes it is but if you walk a few metres to the left you hit beach!

Thank you to the whole team, we really enjoyed our stay on the island and will be recommending it to anyone who is considering travelling Thailand.

Probably the most relaxing place I know.

The food is great (Thai style, but you can get a sandwich, too), beside the normal menu they offer a special of the day. The restaurant is up the hill and offers a nice view whilst enjoying your meal.

The open bungalows are clean, having a terrace and some of them offer seaview. In the night you can hear the animals of the jungle around you.

The resort itself is built into the hill and is beautifully arranged with a lot of plants and flowers, huge butterflies are flying around you. Be aware that this is not a standardized hotel resort, you are in the nature and nature is around you. Stairs are steep, sometimes you see monkeys and the street is a bit crazy. If you don't like that you'd go to a standard franchise hotel.

The team is friendly and open minded. Valerie takes care of arrival/departure arrangements and tour booking. The bar at the sea is great for a sundowner (or two).

The beach in front of the resort is covered with rocks, you have to walk 150m to get easy access to the sea.

Long story made short, if you like a silent place to relax in the middle of the nature with good food, here you are.

This place is super relaxing we did bugger all for four days and loved it, lucky -the bar man is the nicest fun person ever he was a great help with advice and an excellent host as was Valarie the owner. The food in the restaurant was very nice tho a limited menu we got a buck sick of eating the same things....our room in the concrete bungalow was very comfy clean with a small mini bar. The beach was down a steep set of steps but a few other bars and other resorts if you want to try and eat elsewhere. We really enjoyed our stay :)

We had no hot water so had to endure cold showers everyday it was chilly and rained for days which no one can help but having a freezing shower wasnt enjoyable.we didn't complain as it was full you booked and couldn't have moved rooms. They have a pop up shop 25 mins away which we didn't manage to get to as the weather was very wet the road out was impassable, it would have been nice if they had a pop up shop on site as other hotels have along the strip.

Valarie and her husband have put a lot of time and effort into this resort the small touches like the game boards for rainy days, they have a huge footfall always busy but they make huge effort to remember peoples names and make conversation.

Def worth a visit via koh lanta :)

We just left OonLee Bungalows this afternoon and were very sad to leave. The location is amazing, the bungalows are perfect, the food is excellent but what makes it the best are the owners and the staff. They are all so friendly and make you feel like your at home from the moment they pick you up. They do everything to help you or to make your stay even more great. And it was really good communicating with Valerie and she has a great pop up shop as well. Well worth a visit!

They have a great restaurant with fresh caught fish specials every day. And also a regular menu that’s full of great options. Down stairs right at the beach they have a great bar with the best bartender ever! Props to Lucky for making our stay even more special and for al the great talks we had!

We also went on a longtail boat tour of the 4 islands and couldn’t recommend it more. You have a longtail boat nearly to yourself with food and drinks the whole day. You have a great day full of the most amazing sceneries you will ever see in your live. They also know the best spots to snorkel and you get plenty of time at each spot. Also the crew was great and made the day even better.

All and all couldn’t recommend staying here more. Just book and you will never want to leave!

A big thanks to Valerie, Oon, Chaad, Lucky and the rest of the amazing staff. We had a great stay!

The view here is magnificent and the food really good.
The position is not wonderful as the resort is on a rutted dirt road accessible by 4 wheel drive and a very long way from anywhere else.
While the rooms are lovely, they have cold water showers only and no tv, Aircon or wi fi.
The rooms access anywhere else in the resort via very steep steps.
If people are made aware of this before they book, dissapointment could be avoided.

Stayed here for 2 nights with my partner and found the place to be excellent. Right on the shore, bungalows build up into the hillside, really smart wooden bungalows, with porch, hammock, fan, beautiful bathroom, mozzie net and comfy bed. The resort is spotlessly clean, food in the restaurant is excellent, bar on the beach, sunsets from the resort, loungers, chairs and hammocks for you to use. Valerie the owner is lovely, this is an extension of her home and treats it as such. For her this is a lifestyle not just a business. They take care of everything for you, from bike hire to onward boat tickets. There are about 40 stairs to go up from the shore to reception, but they do bring your bags up for. I've been travelling for 4 months and this place is up there with the best of them. Came in low season room was about £25 per night for 2 of us. Great stay on a Robinson Crusoe type island

The stay at the Oon Lee Bungalow resort was magical for us. We are so grateful for the familiar and friendly welcome by Valerie, Oon, Joey and Alec, and we hope to be returning someday to this magical place!

We stayed for two nights. Valerie helped us organize our travel to Koh Jum, as it's quite a secluded island, especially during the rain season. We came to the island with a speed boat from Koh Phi Phi; the most convenient, but also expensive, option. Valerie and her family are French-Thai, speak very good English and know the area and Thailand in general very well, as they're truly natives. They will gladly help you and share their knowledge and advice!

As we arrived, we were picked up and welcomed by Joey, son of Oon and Valerie and our unofficial island guide. We're very glad that he showed us the island so thoroughly, as he truly cared about us as friends and guests, and it's very clear how much he and his family love this island.

Driven by a 4x4 pickup truck, we arrived at the hotel, which is truly a gem in the middle of the jungle. The bungalows were very clean, with as many amenities as one could hope for in the middle of the jungle - clean sheets and pillows, beautifully decorated rooms, ventilators and warm showers (no A/C, but the cold breeze at night and the fans are more than enough!)

One of the main attractions of the resort is the absolutely stellar cuisine. Advised by Valerie, we ate the very best Thai food we had so far in the entire country: Pad Thai, curries, stir fried, soups... And of course a selection of French food, such as flambéed Crepes. Absolutely incredible food - Even if you're not staying at the resort, we highly recommend eating there!
Of course, not to be forgotten are Joey's delicious cocktails - highly recommend his Mai Thai!

We liked the food so much we even took a cooking course from the original cook Tiew, who is now teaching Thai cooking full-time. We also recommend anyone to take that course and learn how to make traditional and tasty Thai dishes.

The island itself is magical - almost untouched, with very, very few tourists. Very quiet, calm and authentic - we spent our days cycling and swimming at empty beaches, enjoying local food and playing football with the locals. Just don't forget to bring abundant mosquito spray!

We would again like to thank the entire family for a lovely stay and would warmly recommend anyone to visit Koh Jum and the Oon Lee Bungalow resort - we will hopefully be back someday soon.

How accessable are your bungalows please. I have walking difficulties
Answer from Jade S
Johannesburg, South Africa49 contributions2 helpful votes
Morning Barbara, OonLee Bungalows is built up on a hill, and there are over 100 steps between the rooms & the beach, and there is no other way to get to the beach. If you are down in the middle you will still need to walk up all the steps as the restaurant is right at the top. Even for the 2 of us who are very fit it was quite a chore. I really wouldn't recommend it if you have walking difficulties.Have a look at KoJum Resort, they only have about 15-20 steps to the beach & the pathways between the rooms are relatively flat. I hope that this helps, I did post a picture on my review with the steps.
