We stayed at the lovely Banyan Bay Villas for 4 nights in the Orchid Villa. It was an extremely comfortable and roomy villa. The traditional design is really beautiful. The bed was very comfortable and the fans did a great job at night time. There were mosquito nets supplied but they were not used or necessary. We slept extremely well on all nights. The local troop of monkeys passed behind the Villa every day supplying much amusement. The beach at the property is just stunning. Plenty of trees to hide under to shade from the sun while lying on the beautiful bamboo beach bed. The water is free from rocks, unlike many other areas of Koh Jum, making swimming delightful. You did have to pick the tides as it does go out a lot at low tide. The available free kayaks are a lot of fun.
We ate at the restaurant 3 of the 4 nights. The food was superb. All dishes we ordered were made with obvious care and attention to detail. It seemed to be very authentic fresh Thai food. The wine selection was very good. All prices in the restaurant were extremely reasonable. We ate at a Koh Jum seafood on the other night on recommendation from the staff, and it also was superb.
We hired mopeds from the hotel and they were in great condition. You don't really need them but they were great to have a look around the island.
All the staff were so very friendly and helpful. Nai was a standout, she obviously really enjoys her job and does it so well.
Kitima, the owner, was such a great person to meet. She just loved a laugh, and loved her property, and also you could see the care she had for all her staff and guests. She had such an great ethical outlook on the resort, her staff and the island.
Oh and we can't forget Kitima's dogs, Banchee and Mila. What happy and silly dogs. They enjoy their life.
Our visit to Koh Jum was fantastic, made more so by where we stayed.
Hope to see you next year.

We did not stay in the hotel, rather stopped at the restaurant for drinks and a snack, to watch the sunset. But would definitely consider the hotel as it was in a lovely spot. Drinks were good, not too expensive, and we tried a specialty snack that was lovely....staff wonderful. Clean bathroom!

We stayed here three nights during New Year’s Eve. The whole stay was perfect. It began with a good communication in the beginning because one of our family member can not eat seafood and chicken. So they prepared every meal special for him - including the New Year’s Eve Dinner. Wow - we never had such a friendly service. The Bungalows have been very clean, comfortable and have a very good view on the sea. The food in the restaurant is amazing. We also tried the massage which was one of the best in south east Asia. Last but not least the whole staff was sooo friendly - we felt like home! :-) thank you for a wonderful stay!!

Six of us stayed at BBV for 5 days and had the best time. Koh Jum is a sweet island, still rustic and not crowded like "hot spot" islands in Thailand. The owner Kitima is delightful, super knowledgeable, and on top of her guests' needs. Nai, the manager, is the best ever and always available to help out and make your stay that much better. The food is delicious, not to mention the gin and tonics!
