Set in another century-old teakwood house that stands on stilts over the sea, Sriraya hasn't been as lovingly decorated as The Old Times or Mango House but is nonetheless a charming spot.
Our only complaint is that no staff were present when we stopped by, which also seemed to annoy two young guests who obligingly showed us the room they were staying in. It was simple but pleasantly cool, with moveable fans, several windows (some with sea views), polished wood floors, firm bed covered in orange sheets, mosquito net and even a table and some chairs. The ample shared hot-water bathroom facilities surprisingly have rain showerheads and potted plants to go with bucket-flush toilets. Common areas include a shared kitchen where you can cook for yourself, lounge with sparse furniture but attractive red lanterns and deck with floor cushions and hammocks overlooking the sea. As we never saw a staff member, the price listed below was only what one pair of travellers paid in mid March.
