We spent 9 nights at Layana and it was absolutely wonderful. The hotel grounds, rooms, staff, food and the sunsets were amazing. Please don't hesitate to book, it is just outstanding! Happy hour watching the sunset was beautiful and being given water throughout the day by the pool was brilliant. There are much cheaper restaurants that you can walk to...

If you are thinking about booking a holiday to the Layana Resort and Spa...... stop right there........ think no more, and just book it. I guarantee you will NOT be disappointed. Your experience starts the moment you are whisked away on their speed boat from the privately-operated Baan Rar Mard Pier, and 20 minutes later you arrive in paradise. Stepping...
