Wonderful food from a large selection, 2 pools, the peace and quiet of only over 18s, beautiful beach, top quality breakfast. Details such as complementary insect repellent, food served by pool, fresh milk provided in room for coffee, DVD library, excellent gym make it a special stay.

We stayed for 10 nights in August/September during the Green season. Layana is a lovely resort on an island that is still relatively untouched by tourists compared to Phuket and Ko Samui. From airport pickup, welcome, food, beverages, staff, room quality right to our transfer back to the airport we were very impressed with their attention to detail. We did... More

The Layana Resort is great for a relaxing time away from the office. The service is attentive and the food is top-notch (although slightly expensive compared to other options on Ko Lanta). The resort is also convenient enough to walk to inexpensive restaurants and bars. I went during the low season and the beaches were pristine and un-crowded. During high... More

One thing about Koh Lanta is that it is not as commercialised as some of the other islands in Thailand. Therefor, apart from the beach and food, there's not much more to do here. Layana Resort is located about 25 minutes easy drive after taking the ferry from Hua Hin Pier. The ticketing at the pier is efficient and they... More

We stayed here a little while back. I feel I need write a review because the brilliance of this hotel becomes truly apparent when you visit others. It is just effortlessly great. Everything works perfectly, which almost does them a disservice because to achieve this must take so much work. The setting, the service, the accommodation, the spa, the food.... More

We had the most amazing week at Layana Resort. To start with the resort is impeccably presented. The rooms are beautifully finished with superb attention to detail - they even provide slip on shoes to go outdoors and a bag to take to the beach. The bed was huge and so comfortable, and the balcony was spacious. The rooms are... More

Layana went above and beyond our expectations on many many levels. When we first arrived, we were welcomed with multiple staff members and they looped leis around us and provided us a great cold towel to wipe our faces and hands and presented us with a refreshing cup of tea. We were assigned a staff member who went over the... More
