Paul left Belgium in 2005 for a trip around the world in his Citroën 2pk, after a while he arrived in Koh Payam to help in a program for the sterilization of street dogs. He fell in love with Pearl and the island. Not long after that visit Paul returned back to Koh Phayam and married with Pearl.
Not even a year later Paul and Pearl started to build PP.Land Beach Resort and they opened in November 2006. In August 2011 the family decided to open a second resort on Koh Payam, this time on the Aow KaoKwai beach. This resort, Heaven Beach Resort & Art received their first guests in December of 2011.
Nowadays PP.Land Beach Resort is managed by Paul and Pearl, Wan (the oldest daughter) makes sure that Heaven Beach Resort & Art keeps running.
