If one wants to point the finger at where Lakey "began", their finger would most likely be directed to this place, right at the southern end of the beach strip and run by a mercurial Frenchman.

Photo of Lakey Beach Inn
The frontpiece is a large veranda restaurant. Rooms are scattered behind it on a large lawn. Like many of the offerings in Lakey, rooms are oversized, with plenty of room for cat swinging, and each has a terrace that opens out onto the lawn and well-kept gardens. A number of guests were relaxing in hammocks on their terrace when we wandered through. Rooms come with air-con -- the friendly young local showing us around made a point of saying how powerful the air-con was. Overall the rooms are solid fare and good value for Lakey. The restaurant offers great afternoon relaxing with a cold drink and perhaps a plate of the sashimi Lakey Beach Inn is famous for. The owner though, and his random flights of outrageous temper -- directed at staff as we sat there trying to eat -- seemed extremely out of place with the generally very relaxed vibe Lakey offers. It severely detracts from what is otherwise a seemingly reasonable option.
