Step inside to find a relaxing, artistic vibe built on ukuleles, wood-carved masks, vintage wares, fairy lights, rocking chairs and cushions draped in thick orange mosquito netting by a sea-view window. From there you can watch the fishing boats puttering just beyond the potted plants bearing flowers and spices.

The soft-spoken Thai owner, Air, has always been helpful to us, even pulling out a topographic map on one occasion to share some of her favourite little-known spots on Ko Chang. She also makes a mean massaman curry—do stop by for a meal even if not staying here.

Small rooms are situated on one side of the house, so only one room affords a sea view from a little window. All rooms were full on our most recent visit; previously we found the accommodation simple but comfortable, with small TVs, hot-water bathrooms, comfy beds and screened windows that allow the breeze to flow inside. Two rooms are available with air-con and one has only a fan.

In a small village with perhaps 100 residents and few travellers, Baan Yemaya is a natural meeting point for those who enjoy the serenity of Salak Phet enough to stay for a while. Though we’ve never spent a night here, we’ve stopped by for lunch a few times and met interesting people from several countries. Some were taking advantage of the kayaking, yoga and other activities in the area; others were simply relaxing or working on art and writing projects.

Baan Yemaya was not listed on Agoda and other hotel booking sites at time of writing, but we did notice it on Airbnb.
