This was our second visit to Layana and having loved our first visit 3 years ago, wondered if we would be as impressed second time around. We needn't have given it a second thought. On arrival we were greeted like old friends and the memorable impeccable service continued throughout our stay. When we were taken to our room, the bed had 'Welcome Home' written in flowers and leaves. A few minutes later, someone arrived with a bottle of complimentary sparkling wine as we were returning guests. It's these touches that make Layana a great place to stay.
The owner is often seen around the resort and makes a point of chatting with his guests. The resort is small, which is part of its charm. You don't need to leave it and in fact this time around, we didn't!
The staff make every effort to look after you and you couldn't be friendlier.
Since our first visit to Layana, all other hotels have been benchmarked against. We've yet to find a hotel to beat it, so we'll definitely be back!
