Staying at this hotel right now, and been here two days.The reports on the hotel are all true, ( the good ones of course).The staff are all extremely friendly, and nothing is too much trouble from the pool men to the hotel manager. I would recommend the Layana car and speedboat transfer, a little pricey, but after a long journey...

We were at Layana for 5 glorious days during October ’12. We were so delighted with this place that I actually wrote my first review ever on our first day of arrival at Layana (see “First impressions” review). This is basically a follow up on our first impressions. Layana was the first of 4 places that we stayed in during...

I stayed there last year and completely forgot to write a review. This was literally heaven on earth. Paradise. The resort itself is spectacular and peaceful. Staff treat you like royalty. They would literally wait for us to leave our room for the day and would immediately go in and clean. Breakfast was wonderful everyday. Healthy, fresh, lots to choose...

We have just returned from out daughter Laura's wedding to Paul at Layana. They did not disappoint and it was a stunning day with great attention to detail. Petals laid out on the lawn led up to a beautifully decorated archway with a big heart decorated on the ground for the couple to stand in for the ceremony. Beautiful baskets...

From the moment you are picked up at Krabi, whisked down to the Pier, then transported by speedboat, you feel like James Bond by the way, this place is magical.

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...
