we spent 6 days at the Layana for our honeymoon, And it was just perfect! The great service had began even before we arrived to the hotel, with their initiative to pick us up from the pier. We had a warm welcome, and a bottle of champagne was waiting for us in the room, a present for our honeymoon. The... More

Everything I saw here makes me want to stay on my next visit! The entrance is so discreet, you could easily miss it! The security guards were so polite, but no one was going in unless they cleared it first, which is a good thing! I was visiting with my daughter-in-law for a treatment at the Spa. The reception staff... More

We decided to stay at this hotel due to the positive feedback on TripAdvisor. We were celebrating our 20 year anniversary , and wanted somewhere special to stay. we were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived by speedboat we knew we had hit the jackpot. The staff are lovely, especially Pond, Ying, Coute (muai Thai instructor), and the guy... More

The Layana Resort and Spa is a beautifully imagined jewel on the edge of the Andaman Sea. We enjoyed our stay so much that we are returning next year! The management and staff are exceptional and they made us feel very welcome. Nothing is too much trouble.

My wife and I had high expectations of Layana having read the reviews and noted its status as Thailand's number 1 hotel in 2014. We were not disappointed! From check in to check out we were treated like royalty by the lovely staff. For a resort with only 50 rooms there are so many people to look after your every... More

Long story short sh, this is the way a top hotel shoUld be. Understated elegance and simplicity, staff were clearly drilled to perfection, food was super yummy, the beach spotless. The huge plus - there were no kids running around!

This place has thought of everything. Reasonably priced food and drink. Island was quieter than we imagined. Tried walking up the beach to go to a few bars but it was pretty desolate. Day trips and thai cooking, bike rides etc, were all well worth doing. Pool was amazing, beach was amazing, as was the food and all the staff.... More

I had fancied the look of this hotel for some time. We decided to spend 14 nights there this March. I then worried over whether the many great reviews would be realised and if I was expecting too much. I needn't have worried. It was even better than I had hoped. From the moment you arrive on the beach to... More

We spent 10 wonderful days in Layana (our second time) and enjoyed every single minute. We're definitely no returners but since our first visit two years ago we're addicted!!Rooms, pool, food - everything is perfect - but what makes Layana special is service and staff! From the very first minute you feel warm and comfortable. Every single staff member has... More
