We stayed there for 5 nights during our honeymoon and it was just PERFECT. Beautiful rooms, really nice staff, luxury breakfast served in the room, great sea view, a few steps away from the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"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!

"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. 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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location, Service, and More!"
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. The breakfast is so wonderful which you have a lot choice of main dish and fruit. The staff is super nice too! They also prepared beautiful decoration in our room when we arrived to celebrate our honeymoon, […] so sweet ^^~ Read moreGenuine Hotels.com 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. […] Barnvänlig och mycket serviceminded personal. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Skulle mycket väl kunna tänka oss att åka tillbaka till detta hotell. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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.

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.

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.

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.

"Quiet hotel. Peaceful."
07/20/13 glamourbugz Singapore
Nice quiet hotel. To get to town, you will definitely either need to rent a car or get a tuk-tuk. Bike rents from this street appear to be pricey and given the terrain, not quite advisable. The ride to town is quite beautiful though, up and down hills and offers a view of the shoreline as you enter the city. There are some cafes/restaurants outside of the hotel, but some of them don't see to open later in the night if you come back late from shopping. There is a mini-mart 7-11. The hotel is beautiful. We got a private heaven but unfortunately, did not spend any time upstairs on the deck. Simply too busy going into town and occasionally it rained. The jacuzzi was awesome and I enjoyed the sea view ... but it wasn't as blue as I wished it was. Bed and pillows were comfy. Aircon was a bit noisy and some of the wooden furniture looks a bit tired. When it rained, some parts of the corridors were leaking. Staff were always smiling ... its beautiful to return to this quiet place to rest and hear the waves from the beach.

This is a lovely small hotel basically right on the beach. The room is very big though most of the space is wasted and not used for anything. The best thing about the room is the spa tub which was wonderful. The blinds separating the bathroom and room were abit hard to close completely so you could still see in, however when the room was cleaned after the first day this was sorted out. Our room was on the ground floor and directly across the public bridge that goes to the beach. So if you intend to sit on your balcony or have the curtains opened remember you wont have any privacy. There is a limited sea view from this room due to a tree outside but then that is probably there for the privacy, you do hear the sea very clearly. The pool is small but nice, the first 2 days we were there no one else used it so we had it to ourselves but then after that there were other people using it and we felt like we were intruding, and cramped. The rooms are cleaned very well. The included breakfast is only cereal, toast, muffins and croissants. The eggs are extra 66 baht extra. It was good. On the hotel road there are many tour operators, massage places and tailors. We bought our tour to James Bond Island from the person across from the entrance of the hotel. There is also a cheap laundry place nearby(the hotel rates are very expensive), there is a 7-11 to the right were you can stock up on supplies. We changed money in Kamala but found the rate to be very bad when compared to Patong, So if you are gona go to Patong rather change your money there. When we needed a taxi we used the guy with the very modern and very new Quantum, when you walk out the hotel turn right and a few steps away. There are a few restaurants on the beach and on the road, all a short walk. However as this was low season no place was ever busy. Many days we were the only people having lunch or supper in a restaurant. The beach was nice, very small waves though the shore always had lots of dirt which was annoying. There were also not many people in the water at any given time. Most we ever saw was probably about 10. There were life guards on duty. I think if you are looking for something relaxed then Kamala is the place and Layalina is a good choice.
"Excellent and good price!"

This little hotel in Kamala Beach, is a boutique and cosy place. A nice view of the beach and crossing a litlle bridge you reach the beautiful and peaceful beach of Kamala, from those who likes resting ang good and cheap massages, this is the place!!! Located in the little center, you will have some places to get daily tours, food and some drinks. For my experience is a very good place to stay, near a nice and peaceful beach, and 40 minutes from the marina' s where you get your excursions to Pang Nha Bay, James Bong Island ( absolutely reccomended) and Maya Bay ( lovely place).
Very nice hostel. Too bad the AC was pretty noisy. I had a great time there. The open bathroom is a good idea when you are sharing your room with yourself, but for honey moon or eraly couple it can broke some part of the mystery. Breakfast was awesome there !
