“Really loved Layan Villas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2013

We are a family of 4 (2 Teenage children/adults) and we stayed in a 3 bedroom villa. Main Bedroom/ensuite is huge with very comfy bed. Other 2 rooms (both with ensuite) are a good size but beds were very hard. Each villa is completely private with a high bamboo fence and has its own private pool which is just magnificent. The showers are and inside/outside affair - really great experience. The main ensuite has a great looking spa bath which I didn't try but it sure looked good. The main area and the main bedroom has massive sliding glass floor to ceiling doors which slide open to give the feeling the pool is part of the living areas. Sheer Luxury!

Pk and his staff are very kind and friendly - they looked after us and cooked us a beautiful breakfast every morning. Breakfast is fantastic, but the same every day - PK, I suggest a bit more choice for breakfast would be a good idea. Layan Beach is one of the unspoiled beaches on this part of Phuket and it is an easy walk (or even easier bike ride on the supplied bikes), There is also a regular (free) shuttle to the beach and the local Tesco shop.

We were provided with a local phone so we could just call up PK if we needed something. Very useful when at the beach and looking for a lift home.

Next door to Layan Villas is an excellent restaurant where you can eat at or order room service.

Airconditioned Taxi to Patong is 800 baht - very reasonable.

Internet is always important when travelling with teenagers and the free internet was excellent - very fast.

Would definitely stay at Layan Villas again and highly recommend it to others.

Room Tip: All rooms are good

This was an amazing 3 days of our Thai holiday. PK, the manager, and Mae his assistant, were so helpful and friendly. The restaurant next door served us some of the best food we have had in Thailand, I would give the restaurant 5 stars, either delivered to your villa, or dine in at the restaurant in a beautiful setting just a few steps away for the villa.
Great value for money, great that its out of the hustle & bustle of Patong, and great beach nearby (we walked in 30 minutes, but PK can arrange transport easily).
Only 1 negative for us was the noisy frogs living under the pool, but some may like this sound of nature.

Spacious, Modern, Great Pool, fitted our family of 7 beautifully. Very kind and friendly staff looked after us and cooked us a beautiful breakfast every morning..thank you ladies! Very close to lovely Layan Beach, and right next to a great restaurant where you can eat at or order room service. We hired a van so travelling was easy for us, but about 20-30 mins from Phuket Town and Patong, which suited us to a tee.

There are 6-8 villas in total which can accommodate 1-3 bedrooms depending on the number of guests/your needs, all of which are housed around a good sized pool. We had a little bit of trouble finding it initially as our taxi driver from the airport (should be no more than 800-1000baht) was looking for a hotel - on the Layan Beach Road after you pass The Pavilions it's the next left turn and then 50 metres down on your right. We were really fortunate to book this at the last minute so it was heavily discounted (hence my 'excellent' rating for value) - the accommodation and what's provided is fairly basic but there wasn't much more I could have wanted for a 4-day stay. It's a 30-40 min taxi ride to Central Festival mall or Patong Beach (700-800baht), but we really liked that it was secluded and Layan beach is lovely (go there before it's just another development).
I booked after reading so many good review about the staff, and they are well deserved as the staff especially the manager 'PK' really go out of their way to help - I had to call him on our first night at 3am to ask if a party in another villa could turn the volume down (music I can deal with, a girl shrieking in the pool - not so much!) - nothing appears to be much trouble and if there's something you specifically want, they will try to help you if they can. We stayed as a family of 4 (2 adults + 2 children) plus my mum, who had trouble climbing into the back of the ute so she hopped into the front with the driver instead. There's a published schedule for the shuttle but they were very flexible (depending on other guests etc) and when we told them what we wanted they were also happy to divert to an easier drop-off location.
For breakfast they have a menu that you select from the night before and 2-3 ladies come and prepare it for you in your villa at an agreed time. Each day there was fresh fruit as well as a cooked meal, plus toast and coffee/tea/juice - it's not a buffet, but that suited us. One thing we really liked was that we were given a pre-paid mobile with phone numbers for PK and Mae (his assistant) to use while we were there, great idea! And the staff are really discreet - they came in every day to clean often when we were lounging around the pool, but we never felt like they were intruding. WiFi is free and was fairly good.
Only one word of caution - if you have very small children, there are steep steps to the villa roof top which has really no protection to stop anyone falling (too hot during the day, but okay for a beer in the evening).There are also steps throughout the villas so not somewhere I would recommend for anyone requiring disabled access.
We would definitely stay here again and I highly recommend for anyone who just wants to relax!

Room Tip: I didn't see any other villas but I believe they're all fairly similar. Baan Suan Layan res...

Although we came to the Villa the 'wrong way' - don't ask, but know this - there's no point having a GPS in Thailand unless you can write in the beautiful weddding cake icing type characters that is Thai - we drove via Narnia.

What a pleasant surprise these villas are! And such good value for money! 3 bedrooms, 2 of which are palatial (one with freestanding bath, four poster etc.) one with low platform bed and shower room and one (which we stayed in) a little more 'maid like'. But still outstanding.

Huge living area with floor to ceiling glass walls, big kitchen, fully equipped and a tv with ALL the channels.

The pool is a great size for an evening dip.

The crew that come and cook you breakfast in your room are totally pleasant and fun and make no mess as they fry, boil and beat your breakfast onto the table.

A joy. A car is mandatory really ... but much closer to the beaches than you may think.

We stayed at a villa over the Christmas holiday period with all of our family for approx 4 weeks.

All we can say is fabulous, beautiful weather all of the time and New Years Eve and day spent on the beach, fantastic.

The Thai people are lovely so helpful and friendly our Villa had a really helpful live in maid who we cannot praise enough, she was really great and adored our grandchildren.

Would we return yes without doubt.

I hasten to add this area of Phuket is quiet and is completely the opposite from Patong beach which we have visited in past years but prefer the quieter life style without the ratamataz.

Room Tip: This area is not full of the seedier side of life more the quieter select side.

This property turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. My wife and I had booked this property thinking that this would be usual resort but this was amazingly private and beautiful. Three bedroom villas with their private swimming pools. The manager PK is an outstanding person taking care of individual needs of each resident.

Room Tip: Choose any villa out of five and you wouldn't go wrong.
