Layana is far and away the nicest hotel I've ever been at. The attention to detail is astounding. The staff are extremely welcoming and cater to your EVERY need. Frankly, there wasn't one aspect of this hotel I wasn't blown away by. I understand now, after staying there, why it's the top-rated hotel on Ko Lanta!

we (married couple,58 & 54) had a marvellous time at the Layana.its won a hatful of accolades and its easy to see why.its the attention to detail that we liked.as you approach the (always available) sunbeds a staff member would appear with towels,lay them out then at regular intervals appear with cold water.the food was excellent and always well presented.cost wise it was reasonably priced (on a par with UK restaurants) but it can add up as i wouldn't eat twice a day 7 days a week in UK restaurants).our transfers had been pre arranged and again were excellent.our taxi had pop up TV,chilled towels,cool water then the Layana 2 collected us at the harbour for our 15-20 minute transfer to the layana beach where staff members await to collect cases,place garlands around your neck etc.the beach itself is very good and around 2 miles long.a big bonus with the beach was it was at 90 degrees to the sunsets (at least in November anyways) so the many bars/restaurants offered a marvellous view at sundown.we did do excursions all of which were thru the Layana.these worked out well as they had their own speedboat and even a Thai longboat so you were picked up and dropped off from their beach!it would be very hard to find a fault with the layana,i felt they were still striving to improve and not rest on their laurels,the staff were friendly,polite and efficent.there was building work (a new pool away from the beach) but this never gave us a problem.we had a week here and a week at the Tubkaak Krabi (again with excellent transfers).the Tubkaak was also really good but we felt the Layana had the upper hand in most departments.if you accept that it won't be cheap then go ahead and book up,the weather is out of their hands but other than that they'll make sure you have a good time.(if you notice Aree in the main restaurant tell her Paul and Jacqui said hi!

Excellent place for a couple that is looking for a quiet place to chill. Koh Lanta is not touristy and chaotic like Phuket or Samui. The room is spacious and very private. The restaurant offers great food with amazing buffet dinner on Saturday. They even serve foie gras with steak and all kinds of grilled seafood. The best thing is the Thai service that makes the place perfect.

We are recently back from the holiday of a lifetime to Amazing Thailand. After visiting Bangkok and Koh Lak, we arrived at the Layana in style by one of their brilliant speed boats. From here we were greeted by the managers and given a flower garland and lovely cold drink.

Whilst we sat overlooking the beach, sipping on our drink the manager explained everything the resort had to offer and from here we were taken to our beautiful villa La Maison. As there was four of us La Maison worked very well for us, we all had our separate living quarters but lovely lounge and dining area, and best of all we had our own pool with lovely seated decking area to relax at during the day.

Not only was La Maison fantastic the whole resort was immaculate. The staff could not do enough for you and there was such a lovely atmosphere around the resort.

The restaurant was great, breakfast every morning really set you up for the day, with all the usual favourites plus the delicious curries.

We did a couple of trips from the hotel, one was a long tail boat trip around the island which was great, but our best day was when the four of us rented the hotels speedboat and did a trip to Phi Phi. This included drinks and lunch which we had on our own private beach, such a wonderful day and yet again the staff were fantastic and could not do enough for us.

So to sum it up, did we like Layana...no we loved it, and would we go back...try stopping us. My friends and I are all very well travelled and have stayed in some wonderful places, but Layana wins hands down.
