Staff are around all the time and very helpful, we had a very good time in the resort. However, we came for the diving, but with this diving company, it did not match to anything we read or what we expected. Unfortunately, the diving was a big disappointment , totally overloaded boat, no fun at all and we also question...

Dear Emile, Thank you for your review and lovely comments about the resort and your overall stay. We are very sorry, that you went through such a bad diving experience on Koh Lanta, which is of course unacceptable. However it seems that you have booked your diving trips not under our operator :"Phoenix Diver" . After investigation we confirmed that...

This was our 3rd visit to Layana and it just keeps getting better. Over the 4 years we have have been (we didn't go in 2015) many of the staff are still the same but the resort has improved with the edition of a new pool and juice bar. The same high standards still apply over all the resort, all...

We stayed for five nights and couldn't fault this hotel at all. Everything was what one would expect of a hotel in this price range. The beach is beautiful, in fact we rented a scooter and visited most of the other beaches on Koh Lanta, which were all nice, but we found Long Beach to be our favourite. Some of...

Nice touch with a large fridge, great sitting area and also dining table for the rainy days (which we didn't experience). The new gym and pool is amazing (albeit the cross trainer machine are of the...

We have just returned from our 2nd visit to Layana and the resort is just fantastic, as last year there is not anything we can fault. The staff headed by Stefan are simply the best, every single person contributes to this 5 star hotel making it the best we have visited and we have stayed at some pretty impressive places...

Excellent clean hotel with very friendly staff and lovely food. No rubbish on beach sea crystal clear. Had a really relaxing stay. The boat transfer is a nice touch. The waiter call button from the beach table between the loungers is something that we hadn't seen before how lazy can we get..Oh and can't recommend enough David tailor just along...

Were so pleased we chose this resort to finish our trip at. Compared with the other 5* resort we started our holiday with, this was so far superior and it needs a better * rating. Every little touch to make guests feel important has been thought of and the staff were fantastic. We were there for 7 nights and due...
