Modern and spotless
Heimat Gardens is a nine-room hotel found within a five-minute walk inland from Loh Paret beach.
The two-level concrete building set back from the road doesn’t have a lot of character but it’s well maintained and rooms are kept super clean. Really, impressively clean – the tile floors and bathrooms sparkle like we’ve never seen before. Each of the double-bedded rooms are equipped with air-con, a hot water shower and private balcony, plus a full-sized fridge. Bedding, towels, WiFi and breakfast are included in the price. The restaurant is in a more rustic style and set along the road – we didn’t try it but heard rave reviews of it from other travellers, with dishes flavoured with herbs and vegetables from Heimat’s own garden. Room rates seem a tad high given its off-the-beach location, but for those wanting close proximity to Yao Yai’s best swimming beach, Heimat’s the cheapest option in the area. Khun Yamalia, the owner, speaks excellent English and is known for arranging tours of local sights at reasonable prices.
