We spent 6 nights of our Thailand honeymoon stay here. From the moment we arrived via private speed boat transfer we felt like we arrived in paradise. The prices for trips were high in comparison to outside the resort however worth it. We did the sunset boat trip and 4 Island snorekeling both were excellent. Bikes and hobbycat were complementary...

From pickup at the airport by private minivan and boat to the staff waving us goodbye on the beach, this was simply the most amazing resort we have ever visited. Staff cannot do enough to make your stay perfect. The rooms were beautifully presented and cleaned thoroughly each morning. All air conditioned which was a big relief after a day... More

Transfers by car then speedboat were great. Offered a welcome drink and then taken straight to our room. We had a Garden Pavilion room, which was a good size, with sunken bath and separate shower. Staff were very friendly and went the extra mile to make sure your stay was a pleasant one. Iced water was brought throughout the day.... More

As a chill out stop after a busy couple of weeks this is just about perfect. Everything is geared up to you having a wonderful relaxing time. The staff are fantastic and always seem to have a smile on their face. We watched a couple of the guys putting our sun loungers and there is no question they were thoroughly... More

Our second visit to Layana, we last went in 2012. It has improved and we thought it was perfect then. Nothing much to add to other rave reviews, staff are amazing, even going down on one knee so you can step back up onto the boat! Just total relaxation.

The ocean is clean as is the beach. Dined at the hotel all days/nights as excellent and a good variety of both Western and local dishes. Spa is superb as are the treatments. A... More

Another stunning, relaxing, delightful, superbly looked after 2 weeks in this fantastic resort. From the first welcome to the final goodbye all the staff cannot do enough to look after you, not in an intrusive way at all, and will attend to any request with a smile. We will definitely be going again, if only to enjoy the sunsets at... More

This resort is just bliss. Our second visit to a small but perfectly designed peaceful resort. There are no kids here at the resort although you will find other people and kids walking along the beach from the other resorts further away. Get there by resort transfer from Krabi airport by mini bus (just under one hour) and then speedboat... More
