I feel that i owed Layang Layang Resort a review thus decided to write this while waiting for my flight back to Singapore.

I read the reviews here just 1 day before i flew and likely because of this my expectation was managed. However, when i reached the resort, i was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of the rooms and was even more surprised by their services and dives experiences.

If you are expecting to do a no-deco dives, unfortunately Layang is not for you. Unless you manage to get 10 divers, all like you. The Hammerheads are likely to appear below 35m and when u see it, u really discipline urself to take pic of 1 min and prepare to surface? Unfortunately the hard truth is, many of us wun. Thus, this is NOT the resort and their guides’ fault.

I am a Singaporean who came with 1 other Singaporean and 8 Chinese and i do not find any of them in any ways more inferior in diving. Yes the ratio is 1 is to 10 but we are blessed to have 1 instructor (Jackson) and 1 DM (Shuk) taking care of us. They have certainly done a great job and did not at any point in time, lost any of us, or made us feel unsafe.

As for the Hammerheads, we only managed to see them (a school of them) on the very last 2nd dive of the trip. We have in fact resigned to the fact we will not see them. They are wild marine life, thus there is no guaranteed sighting. If you are someone thinking its confirmed sighting, you might want to go aquarium instead.

As for the food, its standard buffet dishes. Steamed rice, pasta, fish, veg, chicken, beef or lamb and 1 soup. Very typical diving resort or Liveonboard meals. Thus i dont find it particularly good or bad.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all their crews including those not leading us for sharing the locations of Shaun, Hammies and experiences so generously. Special thanks to Shuk and Jackson for taking good care of us and not giving up on finding the hammies. Last but not least, thank you Mark for the great hospitality!

Till we meet again!

– H. Sarah, Singapore
