My husband and I spent the first week of our honeymoon at the Layana Beach and it was wonderful. We stayed in one of the beach villas, which is on two levels. This has a separate upstairs area with a day bed and desk that looked out over the ocean.
The hotel is lovely, not too big and the staff are fantastic. They try very hard and nothing is too much trouble. My husband and I went to the spa a few times which was very relaxing.
The pool is nice and good for doing lengths. There are nice touches such as iced water and fruit kebabs every so often.
The hotel is not expensive and the food and selection is very good.
We were there in the low season so to get to the hotel from Krabi takes over 2 hours and two ferries. I would recommend going in the summer when you can get there by speed boat.
We also ventured into Koh Lanta and went to a great seafood restaurant which cost about £5 for both of us. It felt very safe and was nice to try out some local cuisine.
This is a great hotel and the owners take a lot of care and pride in the place and its shows. I would definitely go back there.
