Excellent location, good food and service

Location, food and service
The hotel is located bang on the beach with the waves of Indian Ocean lapping the clean white sands. Although the sea is not swimmable (it's deep), there's a infinity swimming pool almost merging into the beach. The rooms are inside these hut-like buildings and are designed with all walls having huge glass windows that overlook the ocean and the pool. This makes the rooms feel big, airy and spacy. The gates of Yala National Park are also close (2 KM) and we even saw an elephant (tusker), deers and rabbits near the hotel premises. The service is good and courteous. The food (we had a-la-carte) was very good, especially the Sri Lankan Wattalappam dessert and curries.

Nice hotel just lacking a bit

Pool, nice staff, close to safari
This was our second hotel stay in Yala during our trip. We were originally in Jetwing Yala which is very close by before moving to Laya. The hotel is nice, clean and has a reasonably good pool and menu choice. Although we enjoyed our stay I would not say it is a 5* hotel and it is not close to Jetwing. I would recommend this stay if you have a mid sized budget and are after somewhere close to the national park.

Safari park experience

Staff, pool, restaurant
We enjoyed our stay at laya. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. They organised our safari for us including a breakfast pack (as we left early in the morning). The food was tasty and was reasonably priced. The pool is nice to swim in and the hotel has a gym but it's very small and the equipment is old. I wasn't aware that laya was actually in the park so you are fairly isolated from anything else - the town Tissa is about a 20-30 min drive away but as I said, the food is well priced so at least they don't hike up the prices and make a profit off the location. I would say that the windows could be cleaned and the hotel could do with a bit of maintainance but in general it was a good experience and the staff were fantastic!

Peaceful location for safari

this is well located for those doing the safari
we enjoyed our stay at this resort. the rooms are well presented if not just a litte tired this doesn't distract from the cleanliness and sea vistas from the rooms. The staff are great and are only to pleased to help.
