We stayed at at a nearby resort but once we discovered the wonderful food and service at helmet's restaurant we had to go back for dinner another five times. The food is very fresh, the flavours delicious with style and presentation gourmet standard. The prices are of course far lower than resort prices. The staff are lovely, attentive without being...

The owner is lovely. She really tries her best to please you. She speaks fluent German and her English is also very good. All the veg is organic and home grown. She has own fish farm too. We eat there most days. We are staying at the Santhiya but that hotel is more than twice the price of this restaurant.... More

We didn't stay here but stumbled on this place while exploring the island. The atmosphere was lovely - unforced with banana plants swaying in the light tropical breeze. There were plenty of Thais there - always a good sign. The food was fresh and delicious and, unlike many other restaurants on this most halal island there was alcohol on the... More

We stayed for 3 nights at Heimat gardens. Ko Yao Yai has only a few places and most of them are expensive. Heimat Gardens is a guesthouse with 9 rooms and a restaurant. Yamalia, the owner, speaks good English and German, she is also a very good cook. The prices are not cheap but the food is fresh and good.... More

I spent 2 nights at Heimat Gardens on the island of Koh Yao Yai. I travelled by myself and had an absolutely peaceful and super relaxed time. I very much enjoyed my stay at Heimat Gardens: The hotel was close to the beach, my room was extremely clean and comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. Everyone who is looking for... More

We stayed here for just one night. The nearby beach is nice and great views but the accommodation is overpriced for what it essentially a concrete box with no views. There is an outdoor terrace with some sofas, the rooms are very spacious and clean, aircon availble. But nowhere else in Thailand did we pay 800bht for a tiled concrete... More

We particularly enjoyed the food here - the breakfasts were fantastic! We hired a scooter from the owner and enjoyed touring the island which is quiet and picturesque. The rooms, as mentioned by the previous reviewer, were clean, funcional and business like but we thought they lacked a certain amount of character. As, other than the restaurant, there wasn't a...

We just stayed here for three nights. They are a 5 min walk away from a nice big beach, and the small cluster of rooms are set away from the road and shaded by trees. The rooms were extremely clean with good showers and kind of resembled business hotels from the 90s (this is a compliment!) It's a good price... More

We didn't stay at Heimat Gardens, but we did eat twice in their restaurant which was absolutely outstanding. My wife and I love Thai food. We did 2 cooking courses while on our honeymoon in Thailand (sadly not here, although we did enquire) and we ate amazing Thai food everywhere we went, from street food to more upmarket places and...
