It was our second trip to Layana and hopefully not the last one. Since last time the bar area has been changed and is really nice now - with direct access to the beach and view over the sea, which we enjoyed especially for our last drink before bedtime. Furthermore a new beach area had been created with comfy lounge... More

I stayed at layana for one week early July. The hotel is beautiful, immaculately maintained and only 50 rooms. The staff are fantastic, obliging and always smiling. Unfortunately koh lanta was incredibly quiet as it always is in July so as a solo traveller, the hotel was a little too quiet for me, however I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to... More

I went to Layana with my wife and overall, the experience was just awesome. We were greeted by the staffs and the Manager with a welcoming drink. Everyone there was very friendly and greet you anytime you bump into them. We stayed in a Garden Pavillion Room which was clean and very comfortable. They organize a Wine Get Together every... More

Have just spent a glorious week in this hotel. Absolutely everything including the way staff treat you is luxury. We are spending a month in Thailand and I wish so much we could spend more time here. We had some gorgeous treatments in the spa. The food in Tides restaurant is top class we had a different 3 course meal... More

The hotel is beautifully maintained and in an amazingly serene setting. Management is very careful to maintain a relaxing, jazzy, cool atmosphere with a "no children" policy. The lighting and music are carefully chosen and the vibe here is awesome. We stayed in the garden pavilion and switched to a beach front room before we left. The upgraded room with... More

If you’re after peace and quiet then this is the place for you. Off the beaten track it’s located on the western side of Ko Lanta, on the Andaman Coast. It’s like a sleepy little beach island away from the party scene – where people really go to shut off and get away from it all. If you’re after the... More

We arrived on the beautiful golden beach in front of Layana on the fantastic speedboat transfer. It felt a little like a royal welcome as lots of the senior staff were on the beach to welcome us. Coming from a smaller resort on the quieter island of Koh Yao Noi it felt a little overwhelming at first but we soon... More

Stayed here for three nights during low season, June 2014. And what is this hotel like during low season? Well, the waves are a force of nature and the staff plants red “don’t swim” flags on the beach. The tides deposit plastic flotsam on the beaches — enough that people would rather camp out by the pool than on the... More
