We stayed at another hotel at Long Beach, but when we walked by Layana Resort, we knew we had to come back for a drink and dinner. It’s such a beautiful resort and the bar + restaurant is located on the beach with stunning views. We first enjoyed a great drink while watching the sunset, we then moved to the... More

I was just with some friends walking along the Long beach. We saw this stunning preperation, they did (it was for a Beach BBQ) and we thought have a drink over there. So we relaxed at the bar with some crazy good cocktails. Happy Hour from 5 till 7 they said, so we got a discount from 50%. Great cocktails,... More

This restaurant is just stunning!! The Food peferct, the service attentive in the right way. We had a really loevly and romantic experience. The prices sure a bit higher than in a easy restaurant on the beach, but for a restaurant in a 5 star resort more than valuable... Thank's to our waiter Su, she is great...

It was my birthday today and as I am traveling on my own, I thought I'd treat myself to something special, so I walked over to Layana Tides to have dinner at their amazing beach front restaurant. I got a ride from reception area down to the restaurant which was great, had a seat in the bar area and ordered... More

Possibly the worst meal I have eaten in Thailand; an extreme disappointment as I had a lovely time there 2 years ago. The location of the restaurant is lovely, particularly at night, and the staff are friendly.

Perhaps they were having an off evening but they served food that was at best mediocre (flat Thai dishes, but not quite indelible), and barely recognisable cocktails, albeit with a smile. Fortunately the view was a pleasant distraction from the meal, however as a sightseeing trip it would still not have represented good value. Expect to pay about four to... More

After checking into our room (lovely) we made it down for our dinner reservations. We had a great table at waters edge on the deck and that particular night was Thai buffet night. Between myself and my husband, we both sampled great specialities...all were terrific. The only thought was that I was glad to have had the table at that... More

I picked this place after reading the tripadvisor reviews. It is indeed a beautiful setting. But it is not air conditioned, at least it was not when we went there for lunch. And while the service is definitely a notch above the rest of the island (thank you for the smiles), we did not find the food to be especially... More
