Loved every second of our stay here. Incredible! Beautiful spacious suite with indoor and outdoor shower and bath. Coffee machine. DVD. We stated in the sea view bungalow which was beyond gorgeous and comfortable. Everything was perfect. It was quiet and attention to service was outstanding. Will definitely return.

We stayed here for 5 nights to finish a honeymoon of exploring different parts of Thailand. Having just come from 137 Pillars House hotel in Chiang Mai (really recommend this!) our expectations were set to be a little disappointed in comparison. Yet we were pleasantly surprised with how much we loved this hotel. Not quite at the top end of... More

This was a great hotel and Spa. Right on the beach but with a beautiful pool. The Spa staff and services were wonderful and not expensive. The food and beach bar were great and you could eat and have cocktails right on the beach. The staff was very helpful. Rooms were very nice and comfortable. The only problem was when... More

Had a wonderful time. Looking forward to going back again. Attention to details and warm kindness of staff was lovely and memorable. Hired a scooter to explore the island. Resort location near to main centre of the island. Food was divine and the view spectacular. Rooms were clean and spacious. Looking forward to going back again.

The staff are what make the place. Attentive without being intrusive, very friendly and always willing to advise. We stayed for three nights as part of our honeymoon and enjoyed every minute. Koh Lanta in low season is very low key, so don't expect much socialising or night life, but this is the perfect place to relax. The rooms are... More

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
