What the reviews say

Reviews for the Anantara Layan Phuket resort are very positive with lots of guests citing their love of the resort food, the rooms and the activities. There are also lots of great things said about the secluded location of the resort. If you’re looking for a vacation that doesn’t include the hustle and bustle of the main beach area of Phuket, then this resort is a solid choice, especially if you’re visiting Phuket as a honeymooning couple. However, if you’re looking for easy access to a ton of dining options and nightlife right outside of the resort, then you’ll want to check out a resort that’s closer to the action.
