Layana Resort and Spa
Ranked #1 of 84 Hotels in Ko Lanta
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 April 2013

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 if they don't swim on the beach, it is perfect to walk along.

The accomodation is spacious and comfortable and the dining area is perfectly situated overlooking the beach. The Chef pays particular attention to evey detail and is gauranteed to make every holiday maker gain weight.

The staff are genuinely happy which makes the guest more relaxed. They are all very willing to assist whilst not intruding and make your holiday experience more enjoyable.

The spa was luxurious but you pay for the priviledge and its worth saving for. Best advice is to avoid the greasy massage joints in town.

An added bonus is that the hotel is an adults only resort - fantastic.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

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 too high, just take a taxi at 50 Bahts per person per way to Saladan Town where you can find cheaper food and cheaper tours. Breakfast was super good with many many choices that we did not really need to take our lunch. Complimentary mosquito repellent was provided. Make sure that you book the Linger Longer Spa earlier or you would not have the opportunities to try it like us. What a pity!

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 consists of two bedrooms one on the lower floor, one on the upper floor with a beautiful huge open living area on the split level in between. We had the lower bedroom which is huge. It has a walk in closet area, a shower that you access through the bathroom but has one 'wall' open to the outdoors ( if that makes sense), the toilet is the same set up and then you can walk through to an outdoor shower and a jacuzzi tub!!!!. On the lower level there is also a guest bathroom, a small study/ living area and a private dining area. It is all tastefully decorated to the highest standard and is very elegant. You then go upstairs to a large open living area of which three walls are glass bi-fold doors which can be opened to catch the breeze. There is a lovely modular lounge, full sized dining table, great ipod compatible sound system all of which looks out onto a full size swimming pool complete with two lovely recliners that actually sit in a shallow area of the pool as well as some over-sized cane tub chairs that are on the large deck area! On the top level there is another bedroom with a gorgeous bathroom complete with a huge tub in the middle of the room, plus a separate study/ small private living area. This would be the perfect residence for two couples traveling together as the two bedrooms are completely separate yet you have a very spacious living area to enjoy together. I think you will also be able to book it as a 1 bedroom with the second bedroom closed off but don't quote me on that. We had the downstairs bedroom. All the bedroom/ study areas are air conditioned but the big living area is cooled by cross breezes and a large ceiling fan. This absolutely made our stay at Layana. I don't know how we scored the privilege of trying this out but we were just thrilled that it was us they chose. he only negative I could possibly find is that the pool area lacks a little privacy from the reception area but I am sure that after the green season, the plants they have put in should take care of that. La Maison made our stay.

We stayed at Layana 2 years ago and like all other reviewers had a marvellous experience . We decided to return to Koh lanta this year because we had enjoyed our previous experience at Layana so much and booked in September for a 3 night stay in April through Booking.com ,2 weeks prior to departure we received an email from booking.com that Layana had contacted them to say we were overbooked - surprising since we had booked it 6 months in advance and the hotel still had rooms available for our dates several weeks after we booked. I contacted Booking.com and Layana expressing my disappointment, Booking.com were fantastic and arranged alternative accommodation, Layana did not even bother to respond to my email - this is not the way a 5star hotel should operate or treat returning guests!!!!!

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.
