“Looking for privacy?”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Stayed from August 9th till August 12th 2014, currently still staying here, superb friendly staff, excellent service, very nice room, fav spot in the room, hhmm...definitely the daybed, nice pool and beach, location about 2 1/2 hrs from krabi airport..the taxi/van will take u twice with the ferry to koh lanta island, 2500 baht per van, van got wifi. Very nice breakfast buffet, but on the room service, we ordered room service spaghetti bolognese and pad thai noodle, average taste, but the rest nothing else i would say other than i would definitely recommend this hotel for those looking for privacy and quiet time for couple.

We actually stayed there 3 years for our honeymoon, it was so far the best resort we ever visited, we really had a great time and we liked everything there. The transportation took us one hour from krabi airport, you can choose the take ferry from Phuket only if peak season. We Want to visit again but the price has gone up so much.

We wanted to relax for a couple of days and looked for a hotel in a large radius that was good and within budget. We had huge expectations before we went (the reviews are raving) but it was met and even surpassed!!

The Good:
- Great rooms, nice bathroom, clean
- The hospitality is beyond good. I stayed at top tier brand hotels that where nowhere near the Layana's level. Stefan and his crew add a personal touch to it which makes it feel as if you are a guest in their home. This can sometimes feel slightly too much but it never went beyond the border.
- The price/value both of the rooms (€125 when we went) and the inhouse dining is very good
- The 'no kids' policy. This was new to us but once you are there at the poolside you realise how relaxing it is to have no kids running around.

Room for improvement:
- The whole resort is starting to show a little bit of wear and tear even though they keep it spotless
- Koh Lanta is definitely not a place you need to go. The destination is really the Layana.
- The weather was not great when we where there. But instead of complaining about it the staff turns it into an oportunity and provides everybody with a 1000THB bar tab in a personal letter apologizing for the bad weather!?!

Have you ever heard such a thing? Wow!

It was our second trip to Layana and hopefully not the last one. Since last time the bar area has been changed and is really nice now - with direct access to the beach and view over the sea, which we enjoyed especially for our last drink before bedtime. Furthermore a new beach area had been created with comfy lounge furniture, where we celebrated our friends birthday in style.
At arrival we had a nice surprise: a towel arrangement in form of two elephants on our bed in the midst of flower petals and a bottle of champagne to honour us as returning guest.
The staff is very friendly, the Tides restaurant offers excellent food and the General Manager Stefan Heintze seems to be discreetly all over the place to take care of every guest and make him feel special. We loved the Wine Tasting Get Together for the Guest, the sundowner boat trip - thanks again to the whole staff who made our stay so unforgettable.

I stayed at layana for one week early July. The hotel is beautiful, immaculately maintained and only 50 rooms. The staff are fantastic, obliging and always smiling. Unfortunately koh lanta was incredibly quiet as it always is in July so as a solo traveller, the hotel was a little too quiet for me, however I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to a couple as a perfect romantic getaway.

I went to Layana with my wife and overall, the experience was just awesome.
We were greeted by the staffs and the Manager with a welcoming drink.

Everyone there was very friendly and greet you anytime you bump into them. We stayed in a Garden Pavillion Room which was clean and very comfortable.

They organize a Wine Get Together every Tuesday and were invited. It is a very nice concept where free wine is served with finger foods while you relax and the Manager/Supervisor walks around, chit chats with everyone to find out what they think about their stay.

The place and surrounding is so relaxing, quiet and calm. You'll feel very pampered staying there. The only sound you can hear is the nice music of waves hitting the shore.

There is a massage place right beside the beach but kinda hard to book because there is only one masseur working. Remember, this massage service is not the one inside the hotel compound.

Dinner and breakfast was good at Tides Restaurant. Breakfast was much more exciting as the food was fresh and there is a menu handed to you with variety of choices. You could order and they'll cook fresh for you. There is also choices of coffee from Black, Espresso to Latte and Cappucino.

Overall, our stay there was awesome and pampered!

Have just spent a glorious week in this hotel. Absolutely everything including the way staff treat you is luxury. We are spending a month in Thailand and I wish so much we could spend more time here. We had some gorgeous treatments in the spa. The food in Tides restaurant is top class we had a different 3 course meal every night and each one was as good as if not better than the last. Such a stunning place very sad to leave! Rooms beautiful pool area fabulous can't rate it all highly enough! One tip....be prepared to put on a few pounds you won't be able to resist the amazing food & cocktails!!
