"Would stay here again"
Outstanding. Couldn't be closer to the beach. Absolutely gorgeous beach. Service was excellent, especially Kim who helped us set up trips and get discounts on those trips. Very quiet beach, which was just what we were looking for. If you are looking for nightlife, this is not the beach you want to stay at. Only downside was the bed was pretty hard, […] but that's par for the course in Asia and you can just go get a massage on the beach every morning if you need to. Would stay here again.

"I didn't want to leave!"
This hotel was amazing. I went with the heaven room, which means it's the second floor and includes a private roofdeck with a sun lounge and outdoor shower (perfect for cooling off when the sun gets too hot!). My balcony looked out at the ocean with a great view of the sunset. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rate included breakfast, which I […] chose to have brought to the room so I could eat on the balcony and enjoy the view. The food was delicious! Fresh fruit, delicious scrambled eggs, and some of the best pancakes I've ever eaten (and I've eaten a lot of pancakes). It was also well located on the edge of the strip of hotels and restaurants that make up Kamala beach. I highly recommend this place and would stay again if I'm ever lucky enough to get back to Phuket. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very romantic hotel"
It is good for relaxing! Good view with a quiet environment. It is one of the hotels I want to stay again next time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and rooftop terrace"
Staff were incredibly welcoming and generous. The location is fantastic - right on the beach and close to lots of day beach bars and restaurants. It's definitely worth paying extra for a first floor room - you get a great view from the balcony and a roof top terrace perfect for sunbathing, complete with hammock. The bath looks out onto the beach also. […] It's worth knowing that Kamala is quite quiet and doesn't have the beach evening atmosphere of some of the other beaches in Phuket, but it was low season and perfect for what we were looking for.

"Layalina - Kamala Beach, Phuket"
Location is just off the main area of Kamala Beach, a short 1 min walk away, making it much quieter and more private. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, breakfast was VERY punctual and delivered to our room on both mornings, portions for 2 of us were enough to feed 4! Food was very decent, just dont expect the moon :) Nice touch was the setup, how the room […] was already scented when we arrived, very nicely appointed and romantically laid out. The jacuzzi could've been pre-cleaned though, as we had to drain it out twice before we were comfortable to jump in. Was surprised by the complimentary (and generous!) serving of fruits in the evening, when we got back after a long day out on day 2. Very very courteous staff always happy to help :) And the convenience of a remote like device next to the bed, controlling all the lights, fans, a/c.. Neat ! Would readily recommend this to anyone!

Vi søkte et lite, rolig hotell ved stranden, samtidig sentrumsnært. Valget falt på Layalina og vi skjøt blink. Bildene i presentasjonen yter ikke hotellet full rettferdighet. Beliggenheten med trappeløs nærhet til alt innenfor en radius på noen meter, rommet med utsikt til Kamalabukten og solnedgangen, direkte utgang til et krystallklart basseng med […] boblebad (det inne var overflødig) og strand en på den ene siden og utgang til gaten med restauranter og forretninger på den andre siden, sammen med hotellets service og fasiliteter ga en følelse av å ha fått alt. Gjester på de store, prangende hotellene i åssidene omkring kunne misunne oss. Anmeldelsen er gitt på grunnlag av et 8 dagers opphold. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Familjärt hotell med bra läge och bra service"
Passar perfekt för ett par att spendera några dagar tillsammans. Mysig känsla direkt när man klev innanför dörren. Inte bästa läget mot stranden då man behöver promenera en bit för att nå mer badvänlig plats att ligga på men däremot perfekt mot "staden". utsikt mot stranden som även om man inte kan bada precis där är fantastiskt vilket man inte får […] på så många andra stränder. vi är mycket nöjda med våra 2 nätter vi spenderade på detta hotell.

"Fantastisk beliggenhet og lite koselig hotell."
Kjempe hyggelig hotell som ligger rett ved Kamala stranden. Siden hotellet er så lite er det stille og rolig og en kan få servert frokosten på verandaen hver dag om en vil :) Store og flotte og rom med en stor seng som dog er litt hard men det er de fleste madrasser i Thailand. Samt det kan lukte litt "rått" men dette var minimalt og er vel ikke unormalt […] med tanke på hvor nærme havet de rommene her er. Samt at engelsken er ikke på topp hos alle men alt vi spurte og ba om ble vi hjulpet med etter litt om og men. Vi drar nok tilbake her :) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The greatest experience ever?"
The stay in Layalina appeared to be one of our best hotel experiences ever, if not the best. Perfect location near the beach - you can actually enter the water barefoot from your room. The terrace was shadowed all day long and beautiful sunsets every night. Excellent staff and service, and due to only 15 rooms a very personal tone. Regards from two […] widely travelled Norwegians.

Havde fantastiske 4 dage på dette hotel og det var super dejligt!! Havde egen sol tagterasse og balkon med direkte udsigt til havet, så skønt!! Værelset var meget hyggeligt indrettet og havde en hjemmelig stemning. Alt var dejligt rent og god seng.

We stayed 4 days for the honeymoon at Layalina. It has great location and service as well. 2 mins to beach and to street with lots of restaurants.

They also prepared beautiful decoration in our room when we arrived to celebrate our honeymoon, […] so sweet ^^~ Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Kanonbra hotell nära stranden."
Litet hotell som för oss innebar mer personlig service. Bra att kunna förbeställningar frukost samt få möjlighet att äta på den egna terassen/balkongen. Stor jacuzzi med utsikt mot pool och strand. Riktigt nöjd över vistelsen!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Skönt, lugnt och avslappnat"
Otroligt mysigt, fint familje hotel med få rum för att skapa den rätta atmosfären av stillsamhet. Ligger placerat längst fram mot strand och avskilt från affärsgatan bakom. Jättefina rum med öppenplanlösning och för vissa med egen takterrass med solsäng och utedusch. Balkongen var perfekt att äta frukost på lika väl som att hänga upp en vilande hängmattan […] och beskåda Kamala beach och båttrafiken. Hur nice som helst :) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Super hotel og personale."
Et rigtig godt og hyggeligt lille hotel, centralt beliggende i byen (ingen gadestøj) og direkte på stranden. Fantastisk rene og velholdte værelser med alle faciliteter. Til "Heaven room" hører en rigtig god og helt privat tagterrasse på 45 kvm. med en formidabel udsigt. Flinkt og hjælpsomt personale.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Tættest på stranden ved Kamala Beach"
Rigtig godt hotel - få værelser, men super store og billeder stemmer godt overens med virkeligheden. Eneste minus er passagen foran hvor folk gå til og fra stranden, men hvis man tager de store værelser (private heaven) er dette ikke noget problem. Morgenmaden er ok, men ikke noget væsentligt. Und jer selv at betale ekstra for værelset ovenpå! Hotellet […] har 15 værelser i alt. Sørg for at reserve værelse 1-4 hvis I vælger deluxe (direkte ud fra poolen).

"Stille og rolig hotell nærme stranda"
Veldig bra hotell som ga den lille hjelpen og servicen ekstra som gjorde oppholdet minneverdig. Stranda på den ene siden og gate på andre siden med flust av skreddere, restauranter og butikker. Også bare ca. 15min. til Patong for den som vil reise til en litt mer travel og bråkete by for blant annet shopping. Betjeningen var også blant annet veldig […] hjelpsomme for å finne turer rundt om kring, blant annet Phi Phi. Rommet ble rengjort etter eget ønske; trykker på en knapp ved utgangsdøra. Var ingenting å klage på der. Eneste minuset var litt dårlig engelsk blant noen ansatte, men det synes jeg at man må forvente. Alt ordnet seg uansett. Anbefales!

"Skön mjuk säng"
Under vår 14 dagars resa runt om i Phukets omgivningar var detta vår sista anhalt. Under de 14 dagarna bytade vi hotell ca 5 ggr, detta hotellet hade de skönaste sängarna. Generellt tycker vi att sängarna på hotellen är för hårda, men inte här. Hotellet ligger nära stranden, liten pool men den fyller sin funktion. Vi var mycket nöjda med vår vistelse.

"Mysigt litet hotell precis vid havet"
Jättemysigt hotell nära stranden. Billigt att köpa solstol vid stranden. Frukosten var mysig, man fick kryssa i ett blad vad man ville ha och bestämma om man ville ha det till sitt rum eller äta ute på balkongen eller nere vid "terrassen". Trevlig personal. Väldigt lugn omgivning, inte så mycket shopping och restauranger, fanns lite smått att välja […] på men Patong är bättre just för shopping.

"Layalina Hotel - hyggelig hotell ved stranda"
Veldig hyggelig hotell, med enkle, rene rom og utrolig servicevennlig ansatte. God frokost som gjerne serveres på egen balkong. Litt dårlig engelsk blant enkelte ansatte, men alt ordnet seg tilslutt. Hotellet ligger så og si på stranda og er perfekt for late dager. Et lite minus er at det er utrolig mange nordmenn og dansker på stranda.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Рай для двоих"
Отель действительно очень хороший. Из особых плюсов это собственная тераса на крыше (номера на втором этаже) с выходом из номера. Огромная лежанка, можно брать белье, загорать или ночью смотреть на звезды! В бассейне можно плавать даже ночью, а так как номеров всего 15, редко когда в бассейне оказывается еще кто то.. Общую благостную картину смазывает […] речка-вонючка в нескольких метрах от отеля. Завтраки приносят в номер по предварительному заказу, меню хорошее. Примерно так.

"Amazing Room, Excellent Location"
Room was very clean, staff very helpful. Room is off the main road so it is very quiet. I believe all rooms enter from the road side and have a view of the ocean. Breakfast was included,although they have no restaurant they bring it to the room, it is not a typical American breakfast, but it has a lot of options, juice, cereal, pancakes, no egg or meat product, but a excellent breakfast to start the day. We were able to take taxi, to the Old Town of Phuket, Patong, took James Bond day trip with no problems. Walk to main road was maybe a 5 minute walk. Saw some reviews about price of taxi , i would say learn some Thai, and be able to bargain, went to Patong on $20 Us dollars and went to old town Phuket on $30 US Dollars. Actually my wife and I came back on the public taxi from Old Town for $4.00 each, may not be for everyone. I am 58 wife 56 this overall was an amazing stay. I may never go back to Phuket but if I did This is where I would stay . My son lives in Bangkok and every 2 years we go back to visit, so this was not my first trip to Thailand.
"On the beach"
12/13/14 WanderlustSal Mountain View, California
Kamala Beach location was great for us. Service here was fantastic. In room breakfast or out by the pool was included. The staff was consistently friendly and helpful and our room was spacious. We didn't take advantage of the big tub but we did enjoy the rooftop private patio with a view of the ocean. This hotel is also located near many dining options within walking distance, however there isn't much else going on in the area just some shops so for us it was a nice beach vacation visit, but if you are seeking nightlife this area may not do it for you. This area is spendy-we paid more here than anywhere else in SE Asia.
"Perfect place. I was sad to leave!"

This hotel was amazing. I went with the heaven room, which means it's the second floor and includes a private roofdeck with a sun lounge and outdoor shower (perfect for cooling off when the sun gets too hot!). My balcony looked out at the ocean with a great view of the sunset. The staff was friendly and helpful. They greeted me warmly when I arrived and walked me through all the features of the room. I had arranged an airport transfer through the hotel by email, where they were responsive and helpful. The driver was waiting when I got through customs and brought me straight to the hotel in a brand new SUV. I gladly booked the same car back to the airport. The rate included breakfast, which I chose to have brought to the room so I could eat on the balcony and enjoy the view. The food was delicious! Fresh fruit, delicious scrambled eggs, and some of the best pancakes I've ever eaten (and I've eaten a lot of pancakes). It was also well located on the edge of the strip of hotels and restaurants that make up Kamala beach. I highly recommend this place and would stay again if I'm ever lucky enough to get back to Phuket.
"Awesome Muslim-friendly hotel !!!"
06/17/14 IntanWan Kuala Lumpur
We stayed during the low-peak season in Mid June 2014. Services, location and ambience are great!. The beach is just by the doorstep, which is exactly what i want for this trip. Love it..love it!!! Hotel is just few minutes walk to main road. Downside is public transport is quite a problem. Tuk-tuk can be hired for abt 4000baht per way to Patong Beach. Or else you can rent a motorbike for as low as 2500baht per day, if you can ride. But not recommended for trip outside of Kemala unless you are an experienced rider - road is hilly and winding. 1st nite stayed in Suite (2nd Floor). Dont really like the room, except for the awesome view of the beach. Bed too small for a King-size. There was strong wind on the 1st morning and we could feel the roof rattled, which totally disturbed our sleep. 2nd nite onwards stayed in Deluxe room (Ground Floor). Room was much more cosy, easy access to pool and the beach. There was also kitchenette in deluxe room with washing sink. Couple jacuzzi bath available in both Suite room and Deluxe room. Limited choice of breakfast, only continental spread included in room charges. Any extra order will be charged. But we were given the choice to either having bfast by the terrace or delivered to the room. Of course we chose bfast in bed :) Hotel is owned by Muslim and operated by Muslim staff. Food served is Halal. The staff also helped guiding us in getting Halal food outside, and guiding the Kiblat for prayer.There are many Muslims in Kemala. Event the night market are mostly operated by Muslims. So no problem in getting Halal Food around the area. We definitely recommend this hotel. Your peace and privacy is guaranteed!

We grabbed a room with a private roof top and the view was great. Can't beat the location in Kamala Beach. Everything was clean and the breakfast & service top-notch. The staff were very helpful and the room itself was gorgeous.

First time here. In fact we are still here .10 days into our holiday and I feel I must give Layalina an excellent review we are on the first floor overlooking Kamala Beach with the quaint village of Kamala immediately behind us this hotel has everything for a small family to a couple .The restaurant nearby of are of high quality and the beach is well maintained my advice is travel light everything is cheap here clothes of all descriptions and toiletries . Very friendly extremely efficient . In all we are completely delighted with small hotel . So much so , we have booked for next year already .

A very good hotel. Not extravagant, but the rooms are spacious, clean and offers everything you need. The hotel has a nice location just, basically on Kamala beach. Make sure you get a room on the top floor as they offer more privacy.
11/25/13 KerryPG Prince George, Canada
This is a hidden gem. The hotel is small (14 suites), staff is helpful, knowledgeable, professional and friendly with some understanding of English. We've spent two years in a row at this hotel. It is close to the beach, has a nice but small pool and is close to everything. There is a good, dependable tailor (Krishna) just steps away as well as a good laundry service. A super market is an easy 10 minute walk and our favourite restaurant "Oiy" is two minutes from the hotel. If you are looking to get away from the hustle/bustle of the city and the impersonal atmosphere of a large hotel then Layalina is the place for you. We love this quiet end of Phuket.
11/19/13 Mark_S186378 Stoke-on-Trent, United Kingdom
We just spent the first 3 days of our first trip to Thailand here and find it impossible to fault. We can't compare it to other Thai places but can compare it to many places worldwide. We had a deluxe room with roof terrace and thought it was absolutely beautiful. It was exactly as the internet description, it was spotlessly clean and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. They always had a friendly greeting and a smile. They serve a really nice breakfast poolside or on your terrace. When the tide is in the ocean crashes a few feet from your balcony, a handful of step will put you on a lovely beach with lots to do and endless restaurants, bars, massage therapy and snacks. It was perfect for us and would recommend Kamala Beach 100%. As for the Layalina, we cannot thank everyone there enough for making our first Thailand experience perfect.

We stayed here for five nights in February and the reason it has taken so long to subit this review is because have been waiting all that time for compensation which we received about 3 weeks ago. We were travelling with friends and had booked 2 double rooms. When we were arived the man at reception looked a little non plussed and eventually a lady arrived who explained to us that they only had one room booked for us. I checked our confirmation which clearly said 2 rooms had been booked by our agent. We were told one couple would have to stay in the hotel across the road. As I had arranged the holiday I felt my husband and myself should be the ones to move. The hotel across the road was of a really low standard, it was very basic and more like a motel than a hotel. Once we were at reception at this hotel the lady from Layalina said to us we would have to stay there for 2 nights, we made it clear that this was unacceptable. We had to take breakfast at the substitute hotel which was awful. The next day we did move back to the Layalina at no point did we receive an apology and when I asked for a refund for our room I was told that the hotel across the road was more expensive, having checked out their rates this is clearly untrue. Anyone who looks at my reviews will see that I am not one to moan about holidays, I always look for the positives as cannot see the point of looking back on holidays with negative memories. We eventually received £100 compensation which I fought for as a point of principal. Yes the rooms in the Layalina are lovely as is the setting, however it costs nothing to offer an apology and accept that a mistake has been made, if this had been forthcoming in the first instance I wouldn't have felt the need to pursue compensation. I would point out that it was clear from listening the other guest's conversations that we weren't the only people that arrived at the hotel to find out reservations had been messed up.
