“Simply The Best”
Reviewed 7 April 2012 via mobile

Booked the Layana for my husbands 40h Birthday we wanted soimewhere different but special. It certainly was special, it was the best hotel we have ever stayed in. The staff were brilliant every wish was their command. The setting is perfect, the food fabulous. The room was faultles we used the spa and had treatments nearly everyday. I could write forever but the review would become boring so I will sum it up this hotel is absolutelty faultless.

From the minute we stepped off the plane in Krabi we were in for a treat. Picked up by aircon minivan and then taken to the pier and collected by private speed boat. You have to go this option, imagine this.... pulling up on the beach to a personal greeting party (including the GM!),pristine beach, white sand, turquoise water, you will feel like a million dollars. We stayed in a garden room which was beautiful, pool stunning and the staff were very friendly. On the first night we were treated to a complimentary wine and canapes night. Was a great environment to meet the other guests. Incredible resort within walking distance to other eateries if you want to try something else. Nice place for couples to relax. Recommend the four islands tour run through the resort. Other tour companies do it cheaper than the resort but their boats are packed and we got such brilliant service on the resorts boat, delicious lunch with wine/beer. So pay the bit extra and get treated like a Rock Star you won't be disappointed.

I fear it is becoming something of a cliche because everyone says: 'it's all been said, what can I add' and they are absolutely right. I think it is not just a hotel or spa but a total experience which starts at Krabi airport where one is greeted by a member of Layana staff and guided through the transfer process. It also ends with the same gentleman helping you to check in and smooth the way with airport staff as if one was he most important VIP they had ever encountered. The accommodation and grounds are faultless and the food excellent, although for those a little more adventurous there are plenty of alternative restaurants within a stroll along the beach or a cheap taxi ride away. Stephane and his new colleague, Kanin, head a remarkably happy, effective, and friendly team who have pampering down to a fine art. Thank you Layana for such a wonderful 8 days, I wish it had been longer, please don't change your recipe.

We have just come back from the layana well, on the 16th march. What a fantastic hotel and location. We will definitely be going back. Everything about the hotel has been said and I can only echo that. Ko lanta itself is a fabulous island with everything you want including fabulous bars and restaurants. Thank you to the whole team at layana for making the final week of our holiday so relaxing.

Having spent 10 days at Layana Resort and Spa it is easy to see how the resort claimed number 1 ranking. Layana is pretty awesome.The gardens are beautiful and tended to every day, hardly a leaf out of place. All the staff are beyond excellent, always a smile and a greeting. They do know about customer service, nothing was too much trouble.
We had a garden room and this was lovely, well maintained and spotlessly clean. We had all our meals at Layana and I couldn't fault any of them, once or twice service was slow, but who cares we were on holiday and in no rush. Trips from the resort were all good and the staff very knowledgeable about the local area. The spa was really good and the staff always very friendly
