I cannot recommend this hotel enough. The whole experience from beginning to end was perfect. The staff were warm and friendly and efficient. The room was beautiful with many small details attended to, including a very good hairdryer. The restaurant's menu was diverse and extremely cheap considering the star rating of the hotel. The waiting staff were very well trained... More

One of the best beach resorts I have ever visited. Geared for adults only (18+) so no screaming kids at the pool. Ocean and beach villas have two stories. Relax on a large divan on the second story and look out over the ocean. The room is extremely well furnished and stocked - Nespresso machine, comfortable king-bed with soft duvets... More

I cannot recommend Layana highly enough. It is no exaggeration to say that absolutely everything they did in both the planning and delivery of our wedding was perfect in every way. The staff and service are both exemplary. The service was warm and efficient and the room was wonderful. We had a Beach Villa; the bed was extremely comfortable and... More

Spent a week here in March, had a brilliant time, with so many good things to talk about and very few niggles. Start things in style by Arriving by Layana's private speedboat onto beach where there is a welcoming committee waiting for you. Stayed in the 2 bedroom villa La Maison with own private pool, outdoor showers and jacuzzi, huge... More

After reading many about Layana Resort and subsequent positive reviews last year, my wife and I were determined to visit one day. We were lucky enough to find the time in May this year to take a short break while visiting Thailand for a business commitment to quickly fly down to Krabi for the weekend and so chose this as...

We are a young couple from Spain and really enjoyed our 5 night there. The most excellent asset Layana has is not only their wonderful resort, but especially the wonderful people that work there. They will take care of everything for you and keep on smiling at you 24/7 and every single one knows your name. Great experience.

We went here for 4 days in July and everything was great. Check-in was done in the beach bar. In-room check in would have been ideal but it's still a step up from a reception area. The service, the food, the rooms, the friendliness, the beach and the sunsets, everything was 5 star. Nice little surprises here and there, which... More

What a magical place! From the moment we arrived we were incredibly well looked after by the the entire Layana team. From the very warm welcome with flower necklace, cool (& lovely smelling) towel and welcome drink, tour of the premises and room, to the sundowner cocktails and lounging by the pool to the wonderful spa treatments and massages.
