From the moment we stepped out of Krabi airport we knew we had made the right choice. After a comfortable journey our arrival at Layana by speedboat was stunning. We were then met on the beach by members of the Layana team and presented with orchid garlands and a refreshing drink.
Our room, beach suite 2, was lovely!!!! Facing the beach/sea and with so much space....well worth the extra cost....where you can sip a cocktail and watch the most amazing sunsets
Food, cocktails, excursions all excellent value/quality...at no time do you feel you are being ripped off. If you fancy somewhere different to eat then wonder bare foot along the beach and eat at any of the places on the beach....very cheap. Or take a 'taxi' into town for 100THB.
Hotel gardens and pool are beautifully maintained and the beach in front of the hotel is swept daily. Plenty of sun loungers and lovely little extras....cold water and fresh fruit whilst soaking up the sun.
Linger longer spa treatments were wonderful. I had a lovely French manicure and we had the 4hour romancing spa experience the day after our wedding.
Our wedding was arranged by Margie (Margie and Bob are the owners). We left most of the planning to Margie as it was just the two of us and we wanted the surprise...and no hassle. Margie gave us an amazing, relaxed, romantic and memorable wedding....and the best sunset ot the week... followed by a table on the beach for dinner. We were married in PARADISE and could not have asked for more.
As for the Layana team, Margie and Bob should be very proud of them, they are outstanding. Always willing to assist and always smiling. Thankyou to all of you but especially Arun (party boy) for the fab cocktails at the bar each night and Ranjsit (our wedding meal waiter).
Layana is without doubt unique. The owners are very involved in the day to day running of the complex and regularly accompany guests on their excursions. It is their presence that gives Layana that something extra.
If you stay at Layana you will experience a very special place.
