Stayed here in June 2023 for a few days. Low season so less guest and still lots of staff. That was sometimes a little overwhelming. Not pleasant to have 3 staff members watching you when you have breakfast because there is not much work to do. Restaurant in the evening was poor quality and high price. Food had not much taste. As the manager talked about an international 5 star environment that they provide I don’t agree. In my opinion the restaurant furniture and atmosphere needs a total refurbishment because it was all dated en had a cheap feeling to it. Breakfast was served in the same area as diner. The overall resort was nice. Beautiful architecture and pools. Gym was also very well equipped.

Excellent and top of the best service!! Guests are very well taken care of from check-in to check-out. Manager and staff know all guests and make sure they get what they need. For me, this is true 5 star service. Pros: - amenities are well-maintained ( room, spa, restaurant, lobby, landscape) - location is perfect - romantic and quiet. Several bars and restaurants are accessible next to the hotel. It's just along and in front of Long Beach (beautiful sunset) - shuttle van is comfy and equipped with water, napkin, and comes with onboard wifi - the friendliest and most welcoming staff in the world, truly the hotel's asset 🫶 - great room insulation, never heard of any noise (note: we're really sensitive sleepers) - 2 room services per day (1 for day, 1 for night) - Spa service is fantastic! - Hospitable rating: 10/10 gotta give big credits to their hospitability. Reflects 5-star service Activities we tried (during bad weather) - Muay Thai Boxing 1 hour class, water and towels provided. Beginner friendly. - Yoga - introduction to yoga lessons. Usually early in the morning. - Thai cooking class is lovely. Chef explains each step and ingredient. We even received aprons and certificate as gift. Cons: - breakfast buffet: I find the selection of their breakfast buffet a bit less than other resorts. Overall impression: We were choosing between Pimalai and Layana. Happy that we chose this hotel. Low key high-end hotel, romantic, peaceful, and felt really spoiled during our 3-night stay. Thank you Layana team, keep up the great job! 100% recommended to friends! 💯
