We were collected at Krabi airport and swiftly transferred in a new air conditioned vehicle to the krabi pier (around 50 minutes trip). In the car cold towels and bottles of water were available. From the pier we were transferred by a speed boat to the hotel. The journey took around 25 minutes. The captain was professional and efficient. On...

This was our second visit to Layana and the first time that we have ever returned to the same hotel for our holiday. The fact that my wife and I have returned says it all for us but I think that their average repeat booking rate of 40% says a great deal. Stephan and his team provide and create a...

Now that is a statement! I have worked in the travel industry for over 16 years and I've stayed in some lovely places all around the world... but Layana is without a doubt the best I've ever stayed in. It is truly the most remarkable, wonderful resort. Everything about this resort is perfect. The rooms are incredibly beautiful (gorgeous bathroom...

We stayed at the Layana last November. From the moment you drive down the tree lined avenue to the hotel you get a good feeling. The arrival in reception confirms this. With a very welcome drink and welcome garland to vistas of the perfectly manicured lawns we knew we were in for a treat. The room was spotless, spacious and...

We returned to the Layana after two years on the basis that it was so good on our first visit, why would we go anywhere else? We had read that the resort had new owners, and wondered about the effect of this. We needn't have worried! The resort is still top notch, and the staff are largely the same as...

I agree with most of the plusses expressed about this hotel and we much enjoyed our stay there.. We did however hit one or two negatives which it may be right to mention, in the interests of balance. Breakfast was magnificent (an unbeatable choice of delicious items) but we weren't ourselves overly impressed with the food at Dinner and the...
