Recent guest reviews

We opted for the 2 bedroomed villa {although a couple that like space} and it was fantastic. Excellent swimming pool and excellent accommodation. So clean and modern. Close to fantastic restaurants and lots of supermarkets all within 5mins walk. There is a shuttle service 3 times a day that will take you to the beach which is free. A big thank you to Yu and all the staff that went out of there way to make our first trip to Phuket a very memorable one.

I recently stayed here and was extremely disappointed. The advertised pictures are grossly out of date. Some of the photos on the website show pictures of completely different properties. The reality is one of neglect, deterioration and in some cases poor housekeeping. The bathrooms were extremely dirty, with the baths shown in the photos have been removed. The villa we stayed could not be locked and only after an intense argument were we relocated to another that could be locked. All this came after we initially were picked up from the airport and taken to a completely different villa in a different location at a lower price. Overall I would not recommend Layan Villas to anyone.

Apon arrival we were asked by the secirity gaurd to wait in the reception as our room was not ready and that he would call the manager, he told us we could go for a drink at the resturant which he pointed us into the direction of. When we got to the resturant it looked to be closed until we noticed a sign stating "closed for renovation" so we went back to the reception After approx 45 minutes. Yu the manager arrived. Yu speaks quite good english and is very kind and friendly. She took us to our 3 bedroom villa which smelt strongly of cigarettes which we had asked for a non smoking room, the bath was missing from the ensuite and there were plaster parches on most of the walls, the stairs to the roof deck were what i would class as unsafe more to the point the villa did not look anything like what i had booked. I rang Yu and asked her if i could see her and showed her the photos of what i was under the impression i had booked through booking.com Straight away Yu seemed to know what i was talking about and she appologised and organised for us to be transferred to the correct villa which was much appreciated by all of us. The villa was what i belive to be a privately owned villa by Yu in the Kiri villas resort. The villa was alot bigger, cleaner and modern copared to the other one. The resturant that Yu reccomended was happy to pick us up and drop us off for free which Yu happily organised for us each time i messaged her. The food was quite good and very cheap. As for transport this villa is on the outskirts of town and each time we caught a taxi to boat avenue it was 300 baht each way (which was cheaper finding a taxi there than booking through Yu) The pool was great with house keeping cleaning it daily. The TV could only pick up one Thai channel which was quite fuzzy so make sure you take a hard drive with some movies if you want to watch anything as there are a couple dvds there but they are very old and in Thai. Over all this villa was comfortable and neat with the pool definitely being the highlight. Although if i was to book this againg knowing that this villa was part of Kiri villas resort i would do a price comparison on the two.

Upon arrival was relocated to a newer villa nearby, which was in better condition than the actual older Layan villas. Very good value for money. Location is out of the way, therefore a car or scooter is definitely recommended. Excellent and prompt service by manager Yu. Upon check-in a cash deposit of 3000THB was requested which was a bit of a strange procedure. But full deposit was returned without issues at check-out. Overall great value for money considering the newer villa provided.

We arrived just after 6pm and the manager, Yu, had just left, so another employee graciously showed us around Villa 1.The AC needed to be turned on so he got that working and then told us to not go into the other bedrooms as we had only paid for one. He mentioned how to get a hold of Yu should we need anything, so we called her and she actually came back and finished the check-in herself. Note: a 2000 THB CASH ONLY deposit was required. Yu was very helpful, coordinating an early morning store-run for us for breakfast since we had an early departure for a tour in Phuket. She also was reachable via What'sApp to order dinner from Som- which was fast, affordable and tasty! The villa itself had great wifi and netflix and a kodi build. Free water in the refrigerator and beer for a few $ each if you should choose to have those. The rainshower is partially outdoors and heats very well. The bed is very soft but we were tired both nights so promptly fell asleep. Latenight rains did wake us, but that's expected in this part of the world. My husband did take a dip in the pool which is not heated and since it was raining, he wasn't in there very long. I climbed the stairs to see the rooftop area, not much of a view, but if you have more guests, I could see it as a nice place to spread out. For the cost, it was about what I'd expect, just needs some refreshing in general. And yes, we saw a chatty cat both days as well, but it went on it's way after while.

We booked this Villa as it was in our budget and we had never stayed in a Villa in Phuket. I had read reviews both good and bad and always travel with an opened mind. We arrived at the airport with a transfer arranged from the Layan Villas. We waited for a while and when no one turned up I decided to call. (A mix up had happened although I had confirmation) No worries we grabbed a taxi for 500 baht. Arrived and the security guard took us to Villa 5 showed us around and gave us a mobile phone. We loved the villa the air conditioner worked in both zones, the bed was very soft (no problem for us). The next morning woke up went for a swim in the pool and walked up to the office where I meet Yu. What a gem of a lady! Yu couldn't apologise enough for the transfer mishap and we came to an agreement that she would have us transferred to Patong as it was our next destination. Breakfast was cooked to our preference every morning. Yu also took us to the beach and picked us up by moped when the shuttle bus was tied up. She also gave us information for dining in the area. We enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere of the Villa which was cleaned on a daily basis, the hot water was hot, clean towels, wifi worked without any problems and we could lock all the doors. We had 2 cats that came around breakfast time and left pretty much just after. Yes the villa could use a little maintenance but that didn't detract from our stay. Would we go back? Of course we will be back. Would we recommend Layan Villas? For a nice relaxing stay, Yes! A huge thank you to Yu and your staff.

Villas is excellent,nice view,housekeeping always keep our villas clean. Staff is very helpful,special highlight to Yu ,the villas manager. Very informative. Tours available ,can book through the villas. Thanks for everything.

We stayed at the villas for 6nights in nov 2016 and we really liked it!!! First of all the prices are great especially for what you get! Of course it's always possible to find a thing or two to refresh or change but i have to say that we really enjoyed staying there... The villa is big and nice the pool is great... Location is close to the airport and you can rent motorbikes from the villa which is great. Beach at about 2minutes Great restaurant close to the villas (baan suan restaurant) unfortunately it's not their menu that you get in the room... Little downside for me was the breakfast...it was good but I wish it wasn't the same every morning and it would have been great to have thai breakfasts instead of continental... in the end we really recommend it... The staff was very nice as well...

Lets just go to the nitty gritty..... Day 1 - arrived late to no hot water Day 2 - still not hot water and had to use another villa for showers Day 3 - had hot water, got back from a day out to a burst pipe in the bathroom, noisy neighbors partying till midnight Day 4 - morning no hot water, evening woken early hours by rain dripping on the master bed Day 5 - left thankfully! Found this villa on tripadvisor and will point out the following: It is about 30-40 mins from patong, 7-800 Baht in taxi each way so cheaper to hire a car which we did, thank you to the villas for arranging this. Nearest place to go eat etc is about 300 Baht taxi each way and if the weather is dodgy there is nothing to do nearby so transportation is needed. The villas are in need of some maintenance judging by the problems we faced, cats seem to be a problem, strong smell of tom cats around the villa and watched as one came and marked around the villa exterior. The doors do not all lock properly so not very comforting. The restaurant nearby is ok but if you travel out there are some stunning places to eat... see other reviews. Bed in main room is terrible, soft so you sink in no support possibly the worst bed I have stayed in and I was in the army lol Seriously came away absolutely shattered. Nana was great at sorting things out and giving advice so no complaints with the staff when we needed them but they shouldn't have to constantly fire fight.

The chauffeur was waiting at the Airport (700THB) and the welcome of Nana was welcoming at the villa. Unfortunately we didn't know where to go for dinner... Reception closed 6pm and if you don't have car you it's difficult. The villa is in the middle of a residential area so not a lot so see or do around.
