This is one of very few beachfront properties in Kamala and a good choice if, like us, you prefer to avoid the big international hotels (in Kamala these are the Novotel and the Sunprime). It also has a nice pool, unlike its neighbouring b&b properties. We had booked an upstairs room with rooftop terrace. On arrival we were upgraded to... More

We stayed at this wonderful small 18 room gem for almost a full week. It is right on the beach with a small private pool, big enough. There are lots of restaurants, bars, coffee shops and retail shops within a minutes walk. The staff are friendly and helpful but not pushy. The room was big, comfortable and cleaned properly every...

We stayed here for 2 nights while on a 2 week trip around Thailand, and this was our favourite place by far. The room was lovely, with a sea view from our private balcony and large spa bath. The attention to detail was excellent; there were many thoughtful touches such as extra beach towels, fresh fruit and even an umbrella... More

Stayed at the Layalina for 13 nights in June 2015. It was low season for Thailand, but made no difference to our stay, enough restaurants and bars were still open. The beach is easily accessible and nice for swimming. We enjoyed the wonderful sunsets from our balcony in the evening. The hotel pool is lovely, surrounded by nice plants and... More

Food very average.. bed was great... bathroom was horrible..... More

Layalina is perfect if you want to spend hours on the beach or in the pool, relaxing in a peaceful location where you can find space on the beach but still have people around and facilities nearby. The hotel is right on the beach so you step out of your room, walk about 3 minutes and you're on the beach.... More

Layalina is aThai Family run hotel. Small but nicely arranged. Simple but quality. Breakfast can be taken outside by pool terrace or in room on balcony overlooking the beach. Ideal location with access direct onto the beach or directly onto Kamala High Street for shops, bars and restaurants. Beach restaurants near bye within walking distance. Small beach to the left...

The hotel has wonderful location - you need just cross a small bridge to enter the beach. Our room was spacious and comfortable, it was decorated with natural flowers, with good climate system and a comfortable bed, but a bit dark. Especially I'd like to say about towels - they was very good, clean, hygroscopic, good drying. But the shower... More
