I would like to start by saying that despite the weather not being too good when we visited and injuring myself. - this was up there with one of the best holidays we have been on. The resort is small, intimate, spotless and quiet which is bliss when escaping from London. We found all the staff and managers exceptionally friendly...

We stayed at Layana Resort for Christmas 2013 and had a great holiday. Upon arrival we were greeted by several members of staff, offered cold towels and a welcome drink. The check-in was really swift and straight forward and we were taken by golf buggy to our room. We stayed in a Garden Pavillion Room. The room was really modern,...

We stayed here for 10 days, before spending time in Bangkok. We travelled there from the UK, a long trip - flight to Bangkok then to Krabi.

Positives: Lovely location, great rooms, very friendly staff, very nice layout, well maintained. Loved the unlimited free bottles of water, and the wireless (free, good quality service). Housekeeping was faultless. We booked a number of things via Reception (restaurants outside the resort, car hire, taxis etc) and it was very efficiently handled. Beach services were great. The snorkelling trip to...

My wife and I stayed at the Layana for 8 nights in early November and had a fantastic time. The resort has more of a boutique hotel feel as there are only around 50 rooms and its adult only. We had a Garden room which was spacious without being large although the bathroom was very spacious - our room was...

The Layana is a great hotel/resort - no doubt about it. Of particular note is the welcome and farewell you receive as a guest (if booking speedboat transfers) - faultless. The rooms are well-proportioned and exceptionally clean they provide ample toiletries and also mosquito spray, which was nice. The grounds are peaceful and tranquil and the pool area a real...

A wonderful 10 night chill-out! first class accommodation with great facilities. The staff were very attentive and more than happy to go out of their way to ensure you have the best possible holiday ever.

We are not resort people and came to Thailand for a resort holiday with a little trepidation. Our Thai experiences were of back- packing 40 years ago. Layana just exceeded our expectations in every way.
