Layana is stunning. Most has been said before on other reviews so I will only add a few things:
Definitely arrange transfers with the hotel. We were collected in a air conditioned minivan with reclining leather seats. 2 hrs from Krabi airport, much better than friends who battled on local buses!
Breakfast is amazing. Amazing.
The spa was great - though under renovation right now.
Service is excellent. Yummy fruit sticks and ice cold water while relaxing by the pool.
Garden rooms are lovely and cool and private, with a nice outlook. Very big. Room is serviced twice a day - delicious little cookies at turn down service.
While you are on the island you must absolutely visit the Lanta animal welfare centre, they are doing excellent work with the population of unloved dogs, who are persecuted by some of the locals. Dog walking happy puppies on the beach in the sun is a lovely way to spend an afternoon. See you tube video below.
Best food we had was at time for lime, just up the road from layana. Great beach bar here too, with yummy lemongrass cocktails. Also the cooking school at time for lime is an amazing experience, with lots of yummy dishes to cook and then eat. A must do!
