Stayed here for 7 nights in mid November. The experience was just perfect from start to finish. Rooms beautiful, comfortable & spacious. Pool & beach area always seemed quiet even though we were told the hotel was full. Breakfast was excellent. Food in the main restaurant was reasonably priced but not that exciting. We ate better meals else where. Cocktail... More

We stayed here for a week after sailing in Myanmar & what a treat. The staff are wonderful as is the resort. It doesn't feel big or impersonal but is spacious enough for privacy & relaxation. Fabulous spot on the beach where we have a call button should you need anything brought to you & a great infinity pool. The... More

Fantastic! Wonderful food, wonderful service! I cant complain on anything. Eat in this restaurant :D I didnt live here, just eat. But i think the hotel is at least in the same quality as the restaurant.

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
