A real shame. Could be a real winner.

Located tight on the beach and a 10 minute drive to Yala national ark.
From a distance the hotel looks like a very eclectic structure sitting overlooking the beach. Reception is sparse, staff very friendly and helpful. To get to the rooms, individual structures with two rooms in each, you walk through Reception and out on to the back deck overlooking the pool and the ocean. Our room was on the second floor, a narrow staircase leading to the entrance. The lock on the door didn't work properly. The rooms have three sides with glass. It's a shame that the blinds and curtains are poor quality and don't function very well. Once open you can view the ocean from 3 sides, panoramic. However, if the dirt was removed from the windows the views would be even more spectacular. Our room on the second floor has a balcony, the door was secured with a bicycle lock!! The room itself was run down and worn. Odd as the hotel is less than 3 years old. The wooden floors were badly scuffed, the walls need repainting. The quality of the towels and linen is poor quality and needs to be replaced. All in the room needs a total make over. And a good window cleaning. The couch too is poor quality and needs replacement. We asked at the front desk for the location of the bar and we're told it was on the 3rd floor. We ascended the stairs to find it closed. We went down stairs to the restaurant. It was deserted except for a few staff. The atmosphere in there was non existant. No music, no guests, no noise. No ambiance. Due to the hotels observance of the holiday they were not serving alcohol. We declined dinner menus as we're unsure what quality the food would be. An empty hotel gives that impression. We decided to go next door to the Jetwing hotel for drinks and dinner Which was very good. The management at Laya could learn a few things from their operation.

True safari feel!

Location; pool; split level accommodation.
Set on a desrted beach 12 kilometres along a red dirt road, you really felt you were coming to somewhere special, especially when you finally saw the jagged silhouette of the hotel on the horizon perched on the dunes overlooking the beach. It was total escapism and relaxation when we weren't actually on our jeep safari through Yala National Park where we were lucky to see a rare sighting of a leopard up close. The breakfast and buffet dinner in the Dining Room with its great views were both of an excellent standard, as you would not want to waste time going into town for restaurants. We loved the spacious split level room with balcony. A unique treat to stay here amongst nature! Woukd love to return!!!

Excellent stay

Closeness to Yala, Staff performance, Peacefullness
We stayed 2 nights in Laya Safari. The hotel is a bit isolated but it is so nice and reasonably priced that you don't want to leave the hotel grounds. The staff are certainly 5* quality and the food is great, especially the breakfast. The pool could be a bit cleaner but that is a minor issue.
