Great views and attentive staff
We had a lovely stay at Laya Safari with great views of the ocean and National Park. The pool is great but they need to sought out the gym. Staff were fantastic and food is great. Yes the hotel is a little tired but it all adds to the rustic feel. I would definitely go back.

Peaceful Getaway with Indian Ocean
The facility is nice, top-notch, but you can tell it's also a bit worn. The room was in good condition, but just some of the details, blinds needed to be replaced. The loft suite we had was very spacious, loved the layout , with the multi-tier setup. Food was very good - for dinner and breakfast. This is a perfect spot if you want to walk on beaches in solitude - as there are not many people on the beaches due to the harsh waves, it's still very serene, scenic nonetheless. I loved it here, and you're reminded of nature when you look down from the balcony, and there's a cow grazing. Life is beautiful!

Overrated 5-star hotel
Staff in the restaurant, location (close to Yala National Park), Laundry Service
The hotel manager was extremely impolite when we made feedback on the air-con system in our room which took too long to get cool. We didnt feel very welcomed at the reception that we expected in a 5-star hotel. Staff at reception seemed barely understand English and made some silly mistakes when we checked in. Hotel facilities are very basic and they couldn't even provide Spa service during our stay because their Spa therapist was on leave (I wonder why a 5-star hotel can only afford to employ one Spa therapist and when she is on leave, the total Spa service will be completely shut down). Last but not least, we asked to hotel to help us call Tuk Tuk to travel to Mirissa at 11am on the morning we checked out. Eventually, the Tuk Tuk arrived at 12pm and the hotel staff did not show a little sign of apology for that. Overall, we didn't think the hotel could live up to a 5-star standard.

Fantastic for safari and chill
Location for safari, pool and seaview
Fantastic. Room was lovely. Great view. Enjoyed safari and chilling by the pool. Rooms were lovely. A little worn but it didn't detract from our stay. Wanted to stay longer.
