The open architecture provides an inviting living area including: a fully equipped kitchen, a TV den area, a dining area that seats 8, and a huge living area with slide away windows that open onto a large covered deck (64 square meters) overlooking the manicured gardens.

The Neighborhood: Layan Gardens is located just outside the little village of Choeng Thale which surrounds the Laguna Resort Complex. In the village you will find most of the services you might wish including: groceries, drug store, restaurants, pubs, and art and antique shopping. There are several spas that offer excellent and very reasonably priced Thai and Western massages along with other spa services. The Laguna Phuket resort complex includes six major hotels attractively spread across 1,000 acres of tropical parkland along an eight kilometer stretch of pristine beach on Bang Tao Bay. The setting is spectacular. Enjoy walking the grounds. You may even get to meet one of the five elephants that call Laguna 'home'. Enjoy!

MIEUX QUE SUR LES PHOTOS...
Nous sommes restés 2 semaines en février 2016 dans ce magnifique appartement.
La résidence est très calme et il y a une multitude de choses à faire et à voir autour donc très bien situé.
La plage de Layan est très belle et très paisible.
Les amateurs de golf seront au paradis
the location is perfect for those who dont want all the crowd of Phuket, but want to enjoy beautiful beach and comfortable house. The pool is very nice, there is also good tennis court. The car is needed there, nothing at all near, and the beach might be close geographicaly, but it would be very long walk, however the recetion in appartment was very helpfull and also helped us to rent a good car for good price.
LUXURY AND TRANQUILLITY
My wife and I have had 11 days at Rory's lovely apartment in Layan Gardens.Taken as a whole, the complex is most impressive and beautifully maintained to a very high standard, due, in no small part to the hands-on management of the developer who still lives there.
Rory's apartment exceeded all our expectations, and even the excellent photos didn't do it justice!
This is one of the 'enlarged' apartments and the entrance way is almost baronial in scale and leads past the kitchen, the dining room, and the tv area, to a magnificent lounge that looks across the terrace, through the tops of the trees outside, to the lake beyond; it was at once both beautiful and serene.
The large master bedroom and ensuite would not be out of place in a 5 star hotel and has the same delightful outlook as the lounge.
The combined effect is one of luxury, openness and tranquillity, and we really felt at home there. Most days we were in no hurry to go out and about as we would normally - we were quite happy to just chill out in the apartment. When we did go out, it was a delight to come back “home”.
Khun Noo who manages the property was wonderful to deal with, always available and helpful, and ever cheerful.
All in all, given the many years we have been coming to Phuket, this is without a doubt the best rental accommodation we have had and we could not recommend it highly enough.
Beautiful, spacious property. Lovely complex.
The apartment is very large, well-maintained, and nicely appointed. Layan Gardens complex is also very nice, with pools and areas for grilling and relaxing. Perfectly suited to families, even large ones.
Rory was a gracious host, very clear communication, all arrangements for arrival and departure were smooth.
We absolutely plan to book again.
BEWARE UTILITY CHARGES
Nice place, great on-site staff, but INTENTIONALLY vague kw/hr representations from the owner as to the utility charges, which you must pay above and beyond the rent, resulted in $600 extra for my 54 day stay. As a single man, utilizing ONLY one bedroom and the tv/kitchen area for a/c (and not even there half the time) I was shocked and frankly pissed at the utility bill. No initial meter reading, so no way to know if the final kw/hr and subsequent 20K bhat bill was honest. If you are, say, a family of four, occupying the all the bedrooms and a/c, you're in for a BIG PRICE shock upon check out. Definitely recommend you negotiate an all-in price with the owner, or be willing to add 5-10% to your total rental price, or better yet check out the Ocean Breeze project, just down the road for a MUCH more affordable rental property of equal quality.
This complaint was about the utility charge at departure after a 50 day stay. I would make the following points:
* Electricity is currently billed at THB4.49/kwh or $.126/kwh which is low compared to neighboring properties as no surcharge is added to the electrical charges.
* The staff at Layan Gardens reads the meters daily. Usage information is available to the guest at any time. I encourage guests not familiar with the costs of running aircon to do this.
* Payment of the utility bill is due at checkout time.
* Guest's bills will vary greatly based upon the usage of the aircon. Not all guests use aircon preferring to open the windows. Those that do, can conserve by only cooling the rooms they use when they are present.
* This guest compares Layan Gardens to a nice but not at all equivalent property in the area. Their purchase prices are less than a quarter of L.G.
Layan Gardens is a perfect location for a relaxing Thai vacation. It has easy 20 minute access from the Phuket airport. It's close enough for a visit to Patong's shopping and night life but in a far more beautiful and peaceful setting. Just 2 kilometers from the 5-Star resorts of Phuket's world renown Laguna Resort, you're only minutes away from golf, spas, and a wide diversity of world cuisine. Best of all, it sits on a hillside overlooking one of Phuket's most beautiful spots, Layan Beach, only 1 kilometer away. Come and Enjoy!
