Echoing the holistic approach of nearby Mangrove Hideaway, Baan Yemaya is a smaller but similarly soothing guesthouse perched on stilts amid the simple village houses.
An outstanding restaurant fronts the breezy bay between mangroves and fishing boats, and tremendous views are afforded from a shared outdoor terrace with a small flower and vegetable garden. Small rooms are located along the side of the building, so only the one closest the bay enjoys some views. The accommodation is simple but comfortable, with small TVs, hot water bathrooms, comfortable beds and screened windows that allow the constant breeze to flow inside. The soft-spoken owner is very helpful; she even pulled out a topographical map of Ko Chang during our visit, providing clear directions to some of her favourite hidden spots. It's a communal vibe, with dinners shared among guests at night.
