Janya Homestay

Found about one kilometre south of the Ao Mamuang school and Rimlay Restaurant, Janya is not really a homestay as far as we could gather, but it’s one of those sub-1,000 baht places to stay that are becoming increasingly rare with Yao Yai’s march upmarket.

Photo of Janya Homestay On our visit, the handful of bamboo and wood bungalows looked to be newly built and some were still under construction. No good beaches are found in the near vicinity but it’s an easy stroll to Loh Poh village to soak up some local ambiance. For dining you’ll have to find a shop at the village or stop by Rimlay restaurant at the small pier nearby. Janya is found in a shaded setting just a few metres back from the main road, so you might have some traffic noise – though there’s very little traffic on Yao Yai! The room is equipped with a mosquito net-draped double bed and a private bathroom with a local style bathing facility – a big tiled basin with a tap and a washing bowl.
