From start to finish our stay at the Layana was wonderful. The pick up from the Airport and arrival made us feel so special; it really was a 5 star experience. The staff are brilliant and coupled with an amazing beach, lovely room and really good food made our stay very special and one we will remember for a long...

I had fairly high expectations of the Layana and it delivered. From the moment you land at Krabi they are on hand to make sure everything goes well. The rooms are excellent, restaurants fairly reasonably priced (although you can eat for a fifth just outside the hotel) and all the facilities impeccable. The staff are all excellent and you really...

Its difficult to explain in words how good the Layana is. They really make you feel so welcome and that nothing is problem. The rooms are spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with two pools to choose from. I used the gym which was modern and my wife raved on about the spa. The food...

We spent 4 nights at Layana for our honeymoon. The resort was at 20% capacity, so tons of room and privacy. The spa is top-notch, and the service was truly what one would expect for the price-point in Thailand. The first room we were given had termites eating the bathroom mirror (!!) - they promptly moved us to a different...

I haven't bothered with Tripadvisor for a number of years due to it being largely plagued by keyboard warriors with nothing good to say. If one visits a tropical country during wet season, perhaps one should expect it to rain occasionally. Also when visiting a tropical country one may also expect to see the odd Lizard or other such exotic...

I really enjoyed the 4 nights in Layana. The service is impeccable. The staff is so attentive without being over-friendly. I enjoyed having my privacy and having time to rest and write without constant interruptions. The beach is amazing and the 2 pools great to swim and chill. Well done to the whole team for your excellent work!

from nightly pickup at airport with care of right temperature in car to being guided efficiently into an early check-in our stay was very enjoyable as for the professional and warmhearted hospitality. pool attendants come swiftly and the size of the resort makes for a wonderful 70m triangle of sleep/eat/swim - when using ocean villa which can be fullheartedly recommended....

Highly recommend for relaxation. All staffs serve with heart. Suggest you to stay for couples of days as you can join the class / program / day tour here. Don't miss the SPA & book it in advance. Plan to re-visit Layana next time.
