'Piman Pu' is a private Thai style timber pool villa constructed using traditional methods over three levels. It has some beautiful architectural features, such as doors from a buddhist temple, and terracotta roof from traditional family pottery kiln.
The villa has a beautiful 11x4 fibreglass pool - with jacuzzi - set in a private lush tropical garden.
It is like a house of the early 20th century, but with all modern conveniences - power, fresh osmosis filtered drinking water, solar hot water, plasma TV/DVD player, fridge, espresso machine. Internet is available in high season on the beach. The villa has direct beachfront access to near private Ao Luboh at Koh Pu.

The inside bathroom has large separate shower room with solar powered hot water, and full western separate toilet room. There is a garden shower, and a shower on the beach. There is also a second outside bathroom.
Swimming at high tide is like being in a large heated lagoon. The villa is set in a lush tropical garden of frangipani trees and palms, and also has a fruit orchard.
The rate for the villa includes service, and Thai meals prepared for you, with food purchased by yourself for you to enjoy. We suggest stocking up with groceries before making the crossing - alcohol is limited on the island, and there are no ATMs. A coffee machine and tea making facilities are provided at the villa, as well as a reverse osmosis water filter.
In high season, meals can be purchased from restaurants operating on the breach.
We can arrange island hopping and motorbike rental.
How to get there?
We suggest you fly to Krabi, and on arrival request a taxi take you from the airport to Laem Kruat pier. Boats leave Laem Kruat for Koh Pu at (phone number hidden) and 17.30. At Koh Pu village ask a local taxi to bring you to Piman Pu Villa.
In high season, there's also a fast ferry from Krabi or Koh Lanta which can drop (email hidden)uboh - but ideally, you should arrange for a longtail to collect you in advance.
The staff live downstairs.

This is a lovely villa and the pool is great. But you do need to be aware that you have to get a Taxi from Krabi airport and then a private boat which costs 50.00 Aust each way to get to the villa and back. The couple who care for the villa live underneath so it is not completely private.
They have a boat whiich Andrew suggested we hire and we did however he didn't tell us about the cost. Would have been good to know.
There is a public ferry but the times it ran twice a day did not fit in with our flights.
There were also a few minor hitches like no batteries in the remote controls for the TV and DVD and no mosquito coils but we got that sorted after texting Andrew.
Ko Pu is a lovely unspoilt island and you can wander along the beach to a lovely little bar or to Luboa Hut restaurant where you can have all your meals if you wish . We had a great relaxing time and would definitely return.
