Perfect for relaxation,peace and quiet. Staff very attentive(almost too much!). Everything immaculate. Lovely swimming pool with views to the sea. Food very good although quite expensive. Trips arranged on certain days. We were there for 5 nights and wanted to go snorkeling. As we missed their day for snorkeling trip they found another trip from a different hotel and we...

This year we spent 8 nights at Layana. This was our fourth visit to this resort but our first visit since the original owners sold the hotel 2 years ago. The hotel maintains its boutique status and the new management team is working hard to maintain the hotels high standards. This hotel has a 50+% return guest number. Most of...

Enjoyed a great week at Layana. Transfers were excellent from Krabi airport, by a luxury vehicle, then by speedboat. To be met on the beach with flowers was the beginning of a week of comfort. The beach is long and being in the middle is good for lunchtime walks, stopping off for drinks and snacks, when required. Our room in...

We spent eleven nights and were very pleased with everything, from the service to the transfers. Unfortunately after just one day my wife picked up a stomach bug! This was contained by immodium but kept recurring! Eventually after one week it was evident that a visit to the doctor was required. After a blood test it was diagnosed as a...

I read a review of this hotel in a glossy magazine some years ago, and wanted to go and stay (they dont take children and thats always a plus to me!). We had a 10 night stay in February 2013 and understand now why so many people rave about the place on Trip Advisor. The hotel has a very positive...

It starts with your pick up from Krabi airport in one of the resorts cars. Cold water and cold towels gratefully received after a very long journey, whisked to the port where your transferred onto a speed boat!!! 20 minutes later you arrive...in paradise.

My fiance and I stayed at Layana for a few nights in June 2012 to cap off our trip to Thailand. It was a bit of a splurge for us at $188/night (booked on Agoda), but was so worth it... we didn't want to leave. The resort was clean, luxurious, very well tended to, and had great amenities. We loved...

We initially didn't book at the Layana Resort for our honeymoon as we were hoping for an oceanview room and at the time of our original bookings, Layana didn't have any available. Big mistake. Instead, we wasted time at another location down the beach that had boasted "traditional Thai charm and oceanview rooms overlooking Kantiang Bay". Feel free to use...

The Layana has an addictive ambience, especially for German and British tourists who come back many times and many know each other and the staff well.

We have just returned from 5 nights at Layana and wishing we had booked for longer. It's no surprise that this is No 1.
