From the moment we were greeted at Krabi airport for our transfer to the hotel, to the moment we left, we were made to feel like the most important people at this beautiful hotel. Everything about this place is just superb. In fact there aren't enough superlatives to do this place justice. The staff are incredibly kind, happy, helpful and... More

We spent a wonderful 6 days here in January. We did absolutely nothing but relax and this is the perfect place to do so. We walked no further than to the bar, the spa and the beach and it was great. Excellent service all round in every facility; nothing missing. The food was excellent in a super restaurant, especially the... More

My husband and I stayed at this fantastic hotel for 11 nights and only wish we could have stayed longer!! We arrived by speedboat directly on to the beach and were greeted by the friendly staff and given a lovely welcome drink. What a way to start your holiday! The food was amazing. As I don't like over spicy food... More

Fantastic hotel in a wonderful location. Stefan and his staff make all guests feel special and it is no surprise that most of the guests we met had been there on numerous occasions. The food was amazing and the service first rate. The chef was more than happy to cook dishes to each guests personal taste. The cocktails at sunset... More

Working within The Travel Trade, we are very lucky to get to go to some special places. Layana Resort and Spa is right up there with the best. Having travelled quite extensively thru Thailand, for this trip we were looking for beauty, peace, quiet and relaxation. More on that later. After a fairly long journey, taxi to LHR flight to...

This is an absolutely lovely resort. It's small (80 people ?) and very personal, and in a beautiful location. Service around the pool was very good indeed - each pair of sun loungers has a wifi call button, which brings an attendant/waiter almost immediately. In the beach cocktail bar, we found we were often waiting quite a long time before... More

Spent a week here after a busy week sight seeing in Bangkok and Kanchanaburi. This was the perfect place for relaxing downtime. Unfortunately our flight was delayed from Bangkok to Krabi so we missed our speedboat arrival and had to go by ferry which was slow and disappointing but the staff at Layana were so welcoming we forgot about that...
