One of the few places to stay on Yao Noi with a sunset sea view, Lam Sai Village's beautiful tropical setting makes up for its lack of character.
Rooms are set in a two-storey concrete building and equipped with hot-water showers, TVs and kettles. Larger "deluxe" rooms with air-con and fridges are also available, and there's free WiFi throughout. Swimming in the sea is not possible here, but handily there's a pool with a decent sized terrace for sunbathing. Being in a somewhat isolated location, you'll need to hire a motorbike or taxi for getting around, which may be arranged at the reception desk. Most of those staying here are enrolled in the attached KYN Muay Thai training centre
, which other guests expecting a more serene escape might find a nuisance. If you're here to train, best to book your stay through KYN, which offers combined training and accommodation packages.
