Pimalai vs Layana

I'm thinking of staying 5 nights at the Pimalai in October, but also considering Layana because of the great reviews.

What is it what makes Layana so special? Is it that is that you can get good prices through their website (very good value). Is its beach especially good? Or is it really far better than other hotels, i.e. the Pimalai?

In my opinion, without taking the price of each resort into account, the Pimalai sounds better for the location (in a hill, with lots of vegetation), for the beautiful infinity pool overlooking the bay, restaurants' choice, etc., but, of course, I haven't been there,I have only seen the photographs posted here and the ones in their websites.

We stayed at Layana in December. "What makes Layana so special?" It is the personal touch. The owners are very involved with its running and train the staff to their standard. It is small and friendly and all guests feel special.
