Stayed in a beach front villa, the interior felt slightly old but some of the other villas were under renovation so presumably being updated slowly. Beach was very nice and clean. The resort itself had two large swimming pools. We made a visit to the spa, good service and good massages. Food wise, not that many options, we stayed in...

However, may we add, throughout the entire region and in particular,...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

Great room product (we stayed in the new rooms) that are even better than the elder rooms, more spacious, brighter, welcoming and tastefully decorated. Nice touch with a large fridge, great sitting area and also dining table for the rainy days (which we didn't experience). The new gym and pool is amazing (albeit the cross trainer machine are of the...

We arrived in April for our third visit to the hotel in three years from the UK. It takes some 24 hours door to door but we have no hesitation in rebooking every year. We are not the only ones - the number of return guests from Europe and other parts of the world is very noticeable. We have travelled...

Of all the many Thai holiday destinations that my late wife and I have visited over many years, the Layana is the only one that I can sincerely say is my "Home from "Home". The room is more than a room, but a place of contentment, comfort, security and satisfaction .

It is just like everyone says it is, perfect. Maybe a bit too perfect for me but that in no way detracts from our stay. People have obviously been going here for years and lots of people knew each other but very friendly and lovely attention to detail. Every member of the team worked very hard to look after all...

Layana resort is situated with an impressive beach front that spans several miles. The sand quality excellent and the sea is clean. The hotel is located in between many cheap chalets and 3star resorts so the beach does not feel very premium and exclusive. The hotel facilities are slightly impressive with their 2 swimming pools and a great spa to...
