My wife and I have travelled extensively in the Far East, and generally make it a rule never to go back to an Hotel, but rather look for new experiences. However, we made an exception with the Layana, and I am so glad we did! It was every bit as good as we had remembered from a previous visit, and... More

spent 9 nights in this beautiful resort. Excellent breakfast, very nice rooms, professionnal staff, everything was perfect except may be the price for the dinner but, as we did not try, cannot comment if food was good. Eat in the small restaurant along the beach or in Paladan.

Some good some not so good Just returned having just spent 12 days at the Layana with mixed thoughts. Having read all the reviews over the preceding months our expectations were high, perhaps too high as it turns out. For those less experienced to 5 star hotels, especially in this part of the world, the Layana would appear to be... More

Thank you very much for your review and reading through your comments, we regret that you have not experienced the usual magic of Layana Resort & Spa like our other guests, while vacationing with us. Corrective training will take place, especially with regard to the unequal pool service including our security checks. On the other hand we are glad that... More

Fantastic Hotel, beautiful setting with the pool and restaurant looking out to the Andaman Sea. The staff are all so friendly and helpful. Breakfast and restaurant excellent although it is worth getting a taxi to L'Maladee restaurant in Saladan and the Galaxy just up the road both serving delicious food and a lot cheaper. The massages on the beach for... More

If you are considering this hotel, my advice is - "book it". The hotel is first class with an excellent restaurant, charming staff, all with Thai smiles. An award winning spa, comfortable and spacious rooms set in beautiful gardens. A lovely beach with bars and restaurants in walking distance and a short tuk-tuk ride to Saladan where you will find...

Check in was very easy since they came to our room to check us in. The room was perfect. Luxurious bathroom stocked with all the basics and even beautiful flowers. The bed was... More

We had a beachfront which we felt was worth the extra It had everything - indoor and outdoor showers, coffee machine, outdoor patio with large day bed etc etc the staff were outstanding and every...

This is a really special hotel. Right from the outset we knew we were in for something impressive. Our luxury private transport from the airport, the lovely speedboat transfer then a personal welcome on the beach from senior management with a welcome drink and flower garland all boded well. A quick tour of the hotel and we were taken to... More
