“Great Stay!”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

My wife and I stayed at the Layana resort for 4 nights and we had a lovely time. All aspects of service relating to our stay were fantastic. We arrived at Krabi airport and were immediately met by a Layana representative. Our transport from the airport to the resort was seamless and quick.

When we arrived at the resort we were met by the general manager and some members of the staff who showed us around. The feel at the resort was different than any other resort I've been to. We were treated like family from arrival to departure and staff did a great job of meeting our needs while not be intrusive so we really got to enjoy our vacation to the fullest.

We ate at the Tides restaurant which had many dining options so we wound up eating there each day of our stay. We also did an elephant ride and the phi phi island tour arranged through the resort and both excursions were excellent. The resort has specific tours on certain days so they set up our phi phi island tour with an outside company since the tour is usually on Tuesdays each week (we arrived on Tuesday after the tour had commenced and left on Saturday). The excursion with the outside vendor was great though.

All in all Thailand is a beautiful place. Staying at Layana, on the beautiful island Ko Lanta, made our trip relaxing and enjoyable. You definitely can't go wrong with spending your holiday at such a great establishment. Thanks to all of the staff we met for their hospitality and we look to return one day in the future.

Room Tip: I really don't think there are any bad rooms to choose. We had a garden bungalow which was very...

This was our 3rd stay at the Layana, we stayed for 7 nights before going on to Phuket.The new management are maintaining the high standards of the hotel, and we felt that the small subtle changes that have been made are positive.Nothing is too much trouble, and we came away as always feeling very pampered and relaxed.We hope to return for longer next year.

It's been said so much about Layana, that I think there is no need to repeat how wonderful it is. I wanted to write more of a Thank you! note to Layana team. I must say that I am a very picky customer and while serching for next vacation destination I try to find a perfect place that would make you want to come back over and over agin. Layana is definitely such a place. And the fact that most of Layanas guests are regular customers which return year after year sais it all.
It's a very cozy resort with a lot of attention paid to smallest details which makes the holiday so special. We would absolutely be back as soon as we have a chance of a child-free vacation. Or maybe it's time to build a "baby Layana" for Layana fans with children :)

We spent 2 weeks at the Resort from 4th February 2012 and it was absolutely superb. From the standards in the hotel itself to the professionalism and courtesy of the staff all were perfect. The staff cannot do enough for you and they are so friendly.

A thoroughly enjoyable holiday and one place we will be returning to

We have just come back from an 8 night stay here following 2 weeks travelling in Malaysia and Thailand. As just about all others have said it is a beautiful hotel with very attentive staff. The Management met us on arrival (by private transfer from Krabi airport and the hotel's speedboat) on the beach, were always around asking if there were any problems, and finally waved us off from the beach when we left, again by their speedboat.
Others have not indicated that the Layana only has 50(ish) rooms and so people get to know each other easily. There was quite a mix of nationalities which was interesting, (we met other Europeans, Australians and New Zealanders).
As far as the hotel goes nothing was too much trouble and I should have asked to borrow an iron etc. as my clothes were somewhat creased after our travels. However we did ask for a mattress topper as the bed was too firm for our liking. We did this immediately on arrival and within an hour the bed had been remade and was much softer.
I would agree that food and drinks are a lot more than outside the hotel but the cocktails during Happy Hour (17.30 - 19.30) were good value.
I can only say that this is one of the best hotels I have stayed in and hope to return next year.
