This was one of my most special holidays with friends and I've had a few. We booked the two bedroom villa, La Maison. A real value for two families wanting to stay together. We were greeted on arrival not only by the GM, Stephan but by the person that handled all of our reservations, Khun Resa. Our personal butler was... More

Just spent 7 nights at Layana. It's beautiful but compact and bijou compared to other resorts I've stayed at. Our main reason for choosing Ko Lanta was for the diving so we spent 5 of our 6 days here out at sea with Phoenix who are twinned with Layana - an excellent twinning as Phoenix were fantastic in every respect....

Beautiful resort hotel right on the beach. Amazing infinity pool. Breakfast is excellent with a full international buffet. Staff are extremely courteous and friendly. Rooms are beautiful, large king size bed, verandah overlooking the gardens and spacious well appointed bathroom. Drinks and food are expensive compared to outside the resort, but you pay for the service and convenience. The bar... More

Where to start, there isn't enough good things to say about this hotel! From being picked up by speed boat and greeted by the staff with a welcome drink and flower garland was a lovely touch. Then to be greeted personally by the operations manager, the assistant manager and then general manager to ensure we were ok and to enjoy... More

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...

Thank you for your review, which we have acknowledged with much surprise. Despite your daily conversations with our Operations Manager, we regret that we have not met 100% your expectations. After further investigations, we can guarantee all food at breakfast is covered and there are certainly no flies all over. We will NOT enclose though the restaurant with its unique... More

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
