We spent the best honeymoon possible thanks to Layana; service, service, service, location and architecture. Ko Lanta is still unspoiled by mass tourism. About 90% of it is backpackers, the rest is kind of luxury resorts and then, there is Layana. We usually spend one day in the hotel and the rest discovering the island... It took us 7 days... More

I have finally got around to writing this review which should have been done many months ago. Better late than never.2 of the main reason we chose Layana was because of their adult only policy and of course being the #1 rated resort in Koh lanta on trip advisor at the time. It all started at Krabi airport where the... More

This hotel was certainly up there in terms of aesthetics. Set in gorgeous surroundings, with a lovely sea view. The beach was also really lovely. Reception staff in the evenings are slow to even say hello, and not helpful at all when asking about local amenities, or how far something is- probably because they want you to spend all your...

We first visited in 2006 and had a wonderful time at Layana and fell in love with the gorgeous unspoilt island. On our second visit we were blown away that the GM took the time to greet us and welcome us back. The hotel arranged a very thoughtful welcoming surprise in our room which meant a lot. There have been... More

This a great resort for a couple looking to get away from things. It is located on an island about two hours travel from Krabi airport via car and ferry - although this is a little shorter in the main season when the ferry trip is replaced by a speed boat that the hotel runs. The rooms are extremely comfortable... More

From the moment the taxi entered the resort's driveway we felt the magic, everything was simply beautiful! It was refreshing getting a complimentary cocktail and a cool towel we just arrived + a champagne waited for us (for our honeymoon) in the room. The room was large, comfy and had a luxury feeling. The service was superb!! Super nice and... More

Our first visit to Thailand and we found ourselves in a tranquil, friendly, comfortable and quietly indulgent setting at Layana. It takes a while to get there (around 2 hrs from Krabi airport) but is worth the effort, especially in the hotel's gadget filled limo-van, around THB1600 pp very well spent. First impression of the spotless rooms is excellent and... More

We stayed at the Layana Resort after reading all the raving reviews on TA, and while we liked the resort, it is definitely not at the 5* level and hence way too expensive at over $400 per night. We generally did not much care about Ko Lanta as the Island is very remote and has little to offer beyond its... More

So much has been written about Layana that I'm not sure that I can add any more however I just wanted to share that apart from the high standard of service, Layana is also so very peaceful. The absence of under 18's really does make this resort stand out! It had a beautiful ambiance that resulted in us having the... More
