Stayed at Layana for 5 nights in a garden pavilion room. The total experience was excellent and they do deserve their very high review score! Room was great and everything just worked and was very well thought out. All staff were delightful and carried out their duties to an exceptionally high standard. You felt very welcome and the relaxed atmosphere... More

We arrived at the Layana and we warmly greeted and taken down to the lounge near the pool. It was a Tuesday so the staff and management had drinks and snacks for the guests which was really lovely. Our room was on the first floor looking over the pool, it was really quite big and had a sunken bath tub.... More

We went to Layana last year and liked it so much that we did something that we have never done we went back. Layana is a resort that prides itself on the customer experience and I have to say they not only live up to that but excel, every member of staff, from the General Manager (Stefan) to the housekeepers,...

This was our 7th visit to Thailand and our 2nd to Koh Lanta, we stayed at this hotel for 9 nights and loved every minute. Around the pool it was so quiet, we did not chose the hotel for its 'no kids' policy but what a difference it makes. The rooms are all set around the ample gardens on two... More

5 weeks in Thailand and Laos! Poor us that we only discovered Layana toward the end of our trip. But be grateful for what you have. In this case we stumbled onto a 2 day opening, got a splendid upgrade to the second row back from the beach, had our choice of whether to sleep on Floor 1 (shuttered and... More

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

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
