5 of us in 3 Garden rooms over Christmas and New Year. Rooms were good. The setting is very good. Set back from a wide and long beach, very pleasant and clean to have a long walk. Swim anywhere and good depth in only 5/10m. The resort frontage of the beach private. Many non residents walking up and down the...

Our family visited the restaurant at Layana one evening in januari 2017 for a nice dinner. Everything was excellent, and the food was great. It was a bit more expensive than other places, but the standard was also much higher.

What is there not to like about the Layana Resort? We arrived after a 2 night stay in Bangkok. Arriving into Krabi, we were warmly greeted for what was booked as a shared transfer but proved to be the sole use of a very comfortable minivan which took us on a 50 minute drive to the pier for our 20...

Friendly staff, nice beach and various entertainment and diners at night. A lot of older German guests and adult only. We've had a great stay because of the friendly staff. Some work to do for the female waiters in the restaurant in the evening. They can be more friendly. A good place if you're looking for rest!

We spent 4 nights at this wonderful resort, we were crestfallen when the letter was delivered telling us it was time to leave! The resort facilities were excellent, the spa (free sauna), 2 pools and restaurant. The excursions where well organised and great fun, we did the one of the snorkeling tours. Walking in either direction along the lovely beach...

Hadn't been to Thailand before and was recommended to come here. Superb service, friendly, helpful staff and great Spa! We didn't eat out nearby as we were on half board but couldn't fault the food or service in Tides restaurant! The pool service was great, fruit mid-morning and constant glasses of ice cold water when sitting by the pool, plus...

I am going to upset a lot of people by writing this review! The Layana is simply an awesome Hotel run by a top top management team headed by Stefan Heintze. The Hotel is tucked away in an Oasis between some very average hotels and being 1 1/2 hours from Krabi airport will deter those who don't want to travel...

We have been traveling to the sun at Christmas for over 25 years and while we have revisited one or two resorts during that time, invariably the magic isn't there second time round. We have just returned home from our fourth visit to the Layana and the magic has been there every time. What a little paradise it is. Stephan...

“Being a busy period we had no option on rooms. The basic garden rooms were fine. The ocean rooms are simply nearer the beach.”
