We stayed for 4 nights at the end of our three and half week trip to Thailand. A private luxury road transport due to the timing of our arrival, but a speedboat transfer at the end of our stay. If at all possible I would recommend a speedboat transfer on arrival and departure. We stayed in a first floor Garden... More

This resort is outstanding. The surrounding is beautiful and well maintained. We stayed in the garden room, which was very good. The staff is very friendly and professional. The pool is lovely and there is nothing like sitting there and looking at the white beach.. Breakfast was excellent and generous. Don't miss the spa, especially the 2 for one on... More

Thomas and I spent your long weekend here from 30th of May to 1st of June. We are impressed since the first hour travelling with the VIP minivan that the hotel provide to us. The room itself is very big, luxury, clean and well design. All the staff are very kind and so friendly. We spent most of the time... More

My wife and I stayed here for what was only meant to be 4 nights, but extended it to 8 nights once we were there, we simply could not fault this resort. The staff are super friendly and very helpful, which made the stay so much more enjoyable. The facilities, including the beach, were very well maintained and clean. The... More

We stayed here for 5 nights (although originally booked for 3 but extended our stay). The rooms are great, with our room in block 7, which had great access to the pool & beach. From when we first arrived to when we left, the staff were fab and always on hand to assist with anything and always with a smile.... More

Best all around, especially their customer service. It is a true 5-star resort. The location and beach is great. The sunsets are stunning. Also, the central town is an easy taxi ride away. I would highly recommend Layana to friends, families and couples.

I stayed with my girlfriend for 7 nights after Hong kong and Bangkok. From the minute we were welcomed by the staff we felt special. The hotel is stunning, huge room with everything we could need, spa was amazing, food was perfect, every member of staff stopped and said hello, water and fruit by the pool. It was perfect. It's...

We have had a house on Lanta for ten years and Layana was a resort we used to walk by on our daily beach walks every day. Having sold our property last year, but needing our Lanta "fix", the obvious choice to stay was Layana for its position, food, service and attention to detail. Firstly, unlike "Pimmelkopf" (translate it)...sorry, Pimalai,... More

We stayed here for only 2 nights as we were backpacking through Thailand. The staff were very friendly and nice, very accommodating! Our room was incredible and loved the pillow menu! The pool and beach area and the service all around this area is so amazing, the staff are so attentive. Incredible place to stay for a couple nights!

We stayed at Layana for the first 4 days of our honeymoon around Thailand. The welcome to the resort was great and our first impression were 'paradise' The standard or service was fantastic. The facilities were brilliant too. We went on the snorkelling trip to koh rock which I would definitely recommend as the water was incredibly importantclear and the... More
