The property has had several subtle improvements made since the change of ownership, but the relaxing ambience and general experience is as good as ever. The staff are always smiling and helpful. The moment you arrive you will be taken care of until the moment you depart. We will return yet again.

This was our second stay at Layana in 4 years and knowing ownership had changed from our last stay were fully hoping it was as good as before. We stayed over Christmas and New Year and everything from the speedboat transfer on arrival to the departure was absolutely fantastic. If anything we thought a couple of 'very small' tweaks had...

My husband and I stopped to enjoy lunch at this lovely looking hotel yesterday, it's certainly an amazing hotel and one for years we have considered staying at. We even thought of holding our wedding there a few years ago. After our experience yesterday though, thank goodness we didn't. We had a really unwelcome and impersonal lunch at the hotel....

Dear Jennifer W, Thank you very much for giving us this instant & honest feedback. Our staff remember your table well yesterday afternoon for a late lunch at the bar area of Tides and we are really very sorry for making you feel not welcome at the resort.

As all the other reviews have said the Layana service levels are absolutely fantastic. As soon as we started to move towards either the pool or the beach someone was there to lay out towels, mov sunbeds, put up the parasol etc and always with a smile. We were there from 29th December leaving on 5th January and we were...

From the very beginning with the assistant at the airpot, arranged hotel transport car and a welcome greeting by a hotel manager at the arrival, the Layana made on me and my husband a great impression. After a long journey from Europe nothing soothed us more than a warm welcome at hotel with cold drink and cold, jasmine scented towels...

We stayed here for 7 nights on our honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect. Arrived by speed boat on the beach, given a flower garland and arrival drink.

We visited here for our honeymoon and were so pleased with our decision.

Just arrived back from honeymoon, we booked into Crown Lanta up the road which was completely overpriced and overrated, please don't go there unless you get a sub $150 a night price, and after about 5 minutes we decided we needed to upgrade - Layana is the top rated resort on the island, and fortunately had a room spare.

Excellent place. We stayed for a week in the early half of December after two weeks travelling around South East Asia. We were ready for a break, and that is exactly what we got.
