This was our 7th visit to Thailand and our 2nd to Koh Lanta, we stayed at this hotel for 9 nights and loved every minute. Around the pool it was so quiet, we did not chose the hotel for its 'no kids' policy but what a difference it makes. The rooms are all set around the ample gardens on two... More

5 weeks in Thailand and Laos! Poor us that we only discovered Layana toward the end of our trip. But be grateful for what you have. In this case we stumbled onto a 2 day opening, got a splendid upgrade to the second row back from the beach, had our choice of whether to sleep on Floor 1 (shuttered and... More

We stayed for 4 nights at the end of our three and half week trip to Thailand. A private luxury road transport due to the timing of our arrival, but a speedboat transfer at the end of our stay. If at all possible I would recommend a speedboat transfer on arrival and departure. We stayed in a first floor Garden... More

This resort is outstanding. The surrounding is beautiful and well maintained. We stayed in the garden room, which was very good. The staff is very friendly and professional. The pool is lovely and there is nothing like sitting there and looking at the white beach.. Breakfast was excellent and generous. Don't miss the spa, especially the 2 for one on... More

Thomas and I spent your long weekend here from 30th of May to 1st of June. We are impressed since the first hour travelling with the VIP minivan that the hotel provide to us. The room itself is very big, luxury, clean and well design. All the staff are very kind and so friendly. We spent most of the time... More

My wife and I stayed here for what was only meant to be 4 nights, but extended it to 8 nights once we were there, we simply could not fault this resort. The staff are super friendly and very helpful, which made the stay so much more enjoyable. The facilities, including the beach, were very well maintained and clean. The... More

We stayed here for 5 nights (although originally booked for 3 but extended our stay). The rooms are great, with our room in block 7, which had great access to the pool & beach. From when we first arrived to when we left, the staff were fab and always on hand to assist with anything and always with a smile.... More

Best all around, especially their customer service. It is a true 5-star resort. The location and beach is great. The sunsets are stunning. Also, the central town is an easy taxi ride away. I would highly recommend Layana to friends, families and couples.

I stayed with my girlfriend for 7 nights after Hong kong and Bangkok. From the minute we were welcomed by the staff we felt special. The hotel is stunning, huge room with everything we could need, spa was amazing, food was perfect, every member of staff stopped and said hello, water and fruit by the pool. It was perfect. It's...

We have had a house on Lanta for ten years and Layana was a resort we used to walk by on our daily beach walks every day. Having sold our property last year, but needing our Lanta "fix", the obvious choice to stay was Layana for its position, food, service and attention to detail. Firstly, unlike "Pimmelkopf" (translate it)...sorry, Pimalai,... More
