Best Resort on the Island”

Joy Bungalow has the best beach front location on the island from what I observed. The staff were friendly and could speak competent English. The restaurant food from breakfast to dinner was great. I was very surprised that they made better pancakes than any restaurant I have eaten at in the U.S. Their Thai food was also great. Their Thai bartender was exceptional and his wife and 3-year-old daughter were great hosts at the bar.

We love Koh Jum and Joy Bungelows! Booked 2 nights and stayed 3. The food was delicious and the Tree and Sea cocktails were fabulous for sunset. Only complaint was not having an area to eat which is free from smokers. Suggest asking smokers to smoke away from the eating area. We can't wait until we can return. Michelle and Scott

Like reaching Paradise. Right on the beach, hammocks, peaceful, waves in your ears day/ night, good food, super nice staff, sweet cats & dogs, plenty of butterflies, monkeys and a bat in the bathroom at night :-) Nice walk to the village. Beware of sandflies - can't be controlled by Joy, though. Loved the place.

The great escape”

The sunset, the atmosphere, the experience

Amazing experience. Decently priced food, mix of Western and Thai. Attentive and kind staff. You take the ferry from Krabi Pier (running from Nov-April) for 350-400 baht (buy it from any hotels or travel agencies there) and a longtail boat from Joy will always come out to pick you up once the ferry is near the place. (Joy! Joy! Joy!) You pay everything at the end of the stay and you can leave all your valuables with the staff at Joy. If you get the cheap bungalows, you must be preprared to deal with a natural wooden bungalow. That is, deal with holes in the walls and door, cold showers, bucket to flush the toilet. Our mosquito net was intact so that was good. The beach has lots of shells and clean warm waters to swim, kayak, and snorkel (bring own or borrow it in town). There are unfortunately rubbish in some areas of the beach but Joy Bungalow cleans everything within their premises. Overall, you can't beat the experience you will get from Ko Jum and Joy Bungalow.

Thailand like 20 years before”

Relaxed atmosphere, close to nature, right on the beach

Joy Bungalow and koh jum in general represents the relaxed atmosphere as it was 20 years before in thailand. No big resorts, no hordes of charter tourists, just the peacful relaxed way of recharging your batteries far away from the busy life. Even to thai standards, the local people are very kind and helpful. Chill-out bars on the beach. Exactly what we are here for.

Really loved my stay at Joy Bungalows”

Rustic, relaxing & fun

I stayed for 3 nights over new years and had an awesome time. There's no electricity on Joy so you get given an oil lamp and your head torch will get a lot of use! Rustic is a key word, but that's why you go as it's an experience you'll rave about. On the 30th December a local live band performed and the whole of Joy turned into an island-wide party where everyone came out to play. Was great! Will never forget dancing to Lady Gaga Bad Romance with some of the locals. As a solo traveller I didn't meet many other solo travellers at Joy though, which was the only downside - at Christmas/New Year's it was definitely the place for families, of which there were a lot. Returners too - Jum is the place that people keep coming back to you year after year. But when I wanted company I used to head down to Freedom Hut where I had made some backpacker friends & use their high speed internet (which didn't work at Joy). Great quirky staff who are friendly characters that speak a tiny bit of English, and decent food. It's a social place with a nice dining area, plus hammocks near the beach amongst the trees. Some of the bigger bungalows have more of a luxury feel too - great if you're more of a discerning traveller with a larger budget. Joy is also the best place to get a pizza on the island. Go check it out, even if you don't stay there!

A real slice of paradise”

Joy Bungalows we’re the perfect place for us to stay on Ko Jum, we pretty much had the beach to ourselves, the view from every angle was stunning and we were less than 20 seconds from the beach. I would definitely reccomend the beach front VIP huts. We had a lovely balcony and big open plan room with nice big bathroom. Very simple and back to basics but everything you could need! Only cold water shower but when it’s so hot that’s fine! I can imagine some of the further back huts would be a bit disappointing as they had no view just the back of the hut in front. Good both western and Thai was great; the pizzas were a revelation and the staff were friendly and attentive. This is how I imagine Thailand was before tourism really took over on the bigger islands. Really was like paradise. Come here and enjoy!

Just beautiful ”

The huts set amongst the jungle. The hammocks to chill out in. The lovely family of staff!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at joy bungalow from january 1st-4th and we're very sad to leave. The beach is lovely for the most part. There are areas where the beach has lots of trash but this is because of the world we live in... Alot of trash goes into the ocean these days so it's inevitable that it will ens up washed up on what should be the most beautiful beaches. However this did not taint our experience. Be sure to check out the surrounding bungalow resorts and the village which is 10 minutes walk away.I would definitely stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you to all the lovely staff.

Best on the island”

We had a great time here at Joy. It was a great experience and very good value, especially when compared to the busier islands. Very clean, nice sheets, cotton mosquito nets, caring staff. Ours was one of the bungalows on the beach, with a great view and lovely breeze. Only thing to note is that these have been renovated to have an extra apartment below - nobody stayed there during our time but you may have neighbours. A particular highlight is the food. If you like Thai food then this is not only the best place to eat on the island (we tried a few others anyway) but was our favourite for our whole trip to Thailand. And very reasonably priced. Would go back just for the food :) Highly recommend!!

Staying at Joy Bungalows was a great adventure we would not want to miss. Right at the beach, very quiet and good food. We liked the fact that there isn't electricity available during night time and hence got a little lamp. For one night or two you can also accept that there is noch flushing toilette (which is quite commen in Thailand). All in all we would stay there again.
