Eco-Friendly Private Acommodation at Lamai Homestay in Rural Thailand

in Ecotourism, Thailand

Travel off the beaten path with a stay at Lamai Homestay.

This eco-friendly guesthouse is located in Ko Pet Village, a rural rice community in the heart of north-east Thailand.

This is the ideal getaway for travelers looking for privacy and peace and quiet. With just three-bedrooms, the guesthouse has space for just six visitors to bunker down.
The mud-brick eco-rooms are modest, but clean. Each is comfortably furnished, and two have air-conditioning to cool the rooms in summer. There is a hot shower with a Western-style water closet located just outside the rooms.

The homestay’s garden grows bananas, mangos, papayas, and custard apples and visitors are invited to pick the fruits straight from the trees. As the rooms do not have their own kitchen facilities, guests are invited to use the outdoor barbeque and eat in the gardens. There is also a splashpool for resting tired feet after a long day sightseeing.

The staff at Lamai Homestay encourage travelers to immerse themselves in the local community. They can arrange tours and activity packages, such as a silk spinning and weaving courses and bamboo and raffia crafts classes. Guests who prefer to observe can see local farmers working on the rice paddies or silk and cotton weavers handcrafting clothes and rugs. It’s also a short trip to the majestic Khmer temples of Pimai, the archaeological site of Ban Prasat, and Khorat City.

Lamai Homestay is located 90 minutes from Khon Kaen Airport. From there, travelers are encouraged to catch a train or a bus to reduce carbon emmissions. The guesthouse’s staff are happy to collect guests from the train station at Bua Yai or the bus stop at Sida on their arrival.
