Layana has a lot of good things going for it (you can go through the other reviews if you need to know more), but it's far from being the best hotel on Koh Lanta. A lot of people I met consider the Layana to be a competitor of the Pimalai but they are not. I got the chance to stay...

Loved every single thing about this amazing hotel. Can't believe it's taken me this long to write a review! Travelled with my boyfriend last year and stayed in a garden view room. From the second we landed at krabi airport, we were treated amazingly! Beautiful smelling flannels, cold bottled water, a private mini bus and speed boat transfer... Out of...

This was the last leg of our honeymoon and what a way to end it. Layana is just simply amazing.

Whilst checking in we were welcomed by Stefan, the general manager and then where...

We tried booking through several travel sites but they were sold out. We were about to book a different hotel when we decided last-minute to...

This is the epitome of a Spa Resort - some many hotels call themselves a Spa Resort but hae little comprehension of what it means. Layana Resort and Spa is special and will without doubt lure the traveller back for a repeat visit. The resort is on the beach so guests can enjoy the pool area and the beach. Even...

Free pick up at Koh Lanta Pier. Prices at Tides Restaurant were a bit higher but the quality of food and atmosphere were better though. Staff were always cheerful and helpful. When we checked in, we were given a schedule of activities which we could join as add-ons. If you think the price of the food or the activities were...

We just spent 4 nights at Layana and we were lucky enough to receive an upgrade to their newly completed 2 bedroom villa. I am going to review just the villa 'La Maison' which I am told they will be taking bookings for from October. This place is simply gorgeous. You access through a huge gate just nearby the spa....
