This is the epitome of a Spa Resort - some many hotels call themselves a Spa Resort but hae little comprehension of what it means. Layana Resort and Spa is special and will without doubt lure the traveller back for a repeat visit. The resort is on the beach so guests can enjoy the pool area and the beach. Even...

Free pick up at Koh Lanta Pier. Prices at Tides Restaurant were a bit higher but the quality of food and atmosphere were better though. Staff were always cheerful and helpful. When we checked in, we were given a schedule of activities which we could join as add-ons. If you think the price of the food or the activities were...

We just spent 4 nights at Layana and we were lucky enough to receive an upgrade to their newly completed 2 bedroom villa. I am going to review just the villa 'La Maison' which I am told they will be taking bookings for from October. This place is simply gorgeous. You access through a huge gate just nearby the spa....

It has all been said! Amazing breakfast. Great staff. Terrific spa deals. A perfect adult couples vacation(no children allowed). We ate dinner on premise every night. Overall, the prices were more reasonable than similar places in Phuket and Phi Phi.

The resort has a fabulous location with terrific sunset views. Our room was absolutely lovely and the staff was most gracious in every way. But my husband and I both thought that there was just something missing..a vibe. Maybe we are just more familiar with Caribbean locales and all inclusive resorts.

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...
