"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.

"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"
Mögel/avloppsodör i rummet. Dålig frukost, smak och fantasilös, lite att välja på och att den måste beställas inför varje dag kvällen innan. Irriterande mycket flugor vid poolen. Illaluktande flod/vatten utanför hotellet. "Do not disturb"-funktionen fungerar bara ibland och när den väl fungerar tas ingen hänsyn till den. Smutsig strand utanför hotellet, samt utlopp för en avloppsflod.

"Uovertruffen beliggenhet"
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.

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 :)

"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. Servicen var rigtig god med meget sødt personale, det sendte mig afsted ved at komme med mig ud på gaden og vinke farvel. Vil varmt anbefale dette hotel.

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 :)

"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!

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. Barnvänlig och mycket serviceminded personal.

"A very pleasant stay"
06/28/15 gjgijsbert Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Stayed at the Layalina for 13 nights in June 2015. It was low season for Thailand, but made no difference to our stay, enough restaurants and bars were still open. The beach is easily accessible and nice for swimming. We enjoyed the wonderful sunsets from our balcony in the evening. The hotel pool is lovely, surrounded by nice plants and trees, which give shade if you wanted it. Breakfast served in your room is a good start to the day (as late as 11 AM); there is a good choice. Hotel staff are very helpful and friendly, esp. Kim. The rooms are spacious, clean and efficient; we stayed in room 9 (there are 15 rooms), which was very nice (came with a roof terrace and daybed which we did not use), but we would recommend the Layalina suite (nr. 12) or possibly a ground floor room, overlooking the pool. Would we recommend this hotel? Yes!

Just finished a weekend at Layalina. The sad thing is it could have been much better.. the Creek outside smells like an open sewage and causes the whole place to smell so bad you can not go outside.. at high tide the smell goes.. but change of tide and its back.. Food very average.. bed was great... bathroom was horrible.. I dont like the fact that the a person sitting on the bed can look directly at the person on the toilet with no walls or barriers in between.. some privacy wpuld be nice.. taxi's and other services are all expensive.. they use local mates to drive you and they just rip into you with price.. what choice do you have... none . So be prepared to pay over the top.. lastly value for money... well thats a joke.. I rushed and booked this based on hotel site rating. In hindsight you can get real 4-5 star hotels with far better quality of service and accomodation for the same or cheaper prices... this place should be about half of what they charge... oh the beach.. in front of the place is a filthy disgrace ( not because of Layalina) but because it just is, you need to go about 500m down the beach to find a nice beach.. but its not as good as Patong... anyone thinking about this place.. go to Patong.. more choices.. better quality.. better beach.. and better choice of activities... I would not recommend this place again.

"Personalised Paradise"
02/10/15 IWOM001 London, United Kingdom
Layalina is perfect if you want to spend hours on the beach or in the pool, relaxing in a peaceful location where you can find space on the beach but still have people around and facilities nearby. The hotel is right on the beach so you step out of your room, walk about 3 minutes and you're on the beach. The rooms are beautiful; clean, comfortable and luxurious with all the facilities you would want or need - huge comfortable bed, chairs, sink area with coffee/tea facilities, bar fridge, bathroom with separate shower and jacuzzi bath, TV & DVD player, robes, slippers, beach towels and even a beach bag. Breakfast can be served at the pool terrace or on your private terrace and there's plenty of food and timing choices. There's no bar facility but there are many bars and restaurants with 5-10 minutes walk including many located on the beach. The gent that checked me in was extremely helpful and welcoming and took time to explain how everything about the hotel and in the room worked. He was also helpful with advising on how much various items should be expected to cost such as taxis to other parts of the island, where to catch a local bus etc. All the staff were very friendly and helpful although some didn't speak much English they did all they could to assist with any request or query. They even surprised me on my birthday by turning up at my room with a cake and singing to me - a totally unexpected, lovely touch. This trip was alone in order to meet family but I immediately planned to return with my partner as it is the perfect retreat for time alone together in a beautiful location where you can choose to relax or visit the heavily populated (touristy) areas knowing you will return to peace. I'd recommend the Layalina to anyone but on the other hand, hope the hotel and the entire Kamala Beach area remain less populated as that is a large part of the appeal of the area. I will definitely return to the Layalina. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

"Lovely family run hotel"
02/03/15 Michael W Ormskirk, England, United Kingdom
Layalina is aThai Family run hotel. Small but nicely arranged. Simple but quality. Breakfast can be taken outside by pool terrace or in room on balcony overlooking the beach. Ideal location with access direct onto the beach or directly onto Kamala High Street for shops, bars and restaurants. Beach restaurants near bye within walking distance. Small beach to the left when you exit the hotel or main Kamala beach to the right. Choice is yours. Sunbeds are now banned from beaches so tourists are taking their own purchased beds/mats onto beach. Hotels have some mats to use.

02/02/15 Igor U Graz, Austria
The hotel has wonderful location - you need just cross a small bridge to enter the beach. Our room was spacious and comfortable, it was decorated with natural flowers, with good climate system and a comfortable bed, but a bit dark. Especially I'd like to say about towels - they was very good, clean, hygroscopic, good drying. But the shower wasn't partitioned off, so after it the floor in the bathroom was completely wet. The trash bins were too small. The service was irregular: on the first day they served the breakfast punctual, on the following day we had to remind, in the evening they made the room only on the last day.

Our flight arrived early in the morning.. I did email to the hotel asking on whether i can check in early.. The hotel had replied yes.. Yet when we arrived, they said that the room was not ready yet and all room was occupied..I was so dissapointed with them as we was so tired and not sleep for the whole night and no initiative from them to assist us.after 15 min my husband did asked them again if they can give us room for us to rest.. Finally the hotel has allowed us to use another room for us to sleep untill our room is ready.. The location of the hotel is difficult to get halal food..

12/18/14 3louis
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.

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.

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.

"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!
