Absolutely Fabulous

Adelaide, Australia

We spent 7 days at this most beautiful resort celebrating our wedding anniversary. From the moment we arrived until we left we were treated like part of the Layana family, every smile from each of the staff came from the heart, everyone was so lovely, polite and friendly. We stayed in the Terrace Suite and it was spacious and had lots of room including drawers and wardrobes, the design of the furniture in both the room and bathroom was exceptional and very functional. There were plenty of choices for breakfast and a different cocktail on offer every morning with your breakfast! The evening sunsets were fantastic and different each day and Happy Hour during this time made a great start to the evening. We also ate dinner in the restaurant on a couple of occasions and the food was delicious, thank you once again Chef. In June lots of the restaurants along the beach are closed for the wet season and also some are closed in the small town, Saladan, however we found a few that were open and had really nice food. The pool areas were beautifully clean and the Pool staff came with iced water and cold towels throughout the day. The whole resort is so very relaxing and so well laid out with beautiful gardens, we did not want to leave. A special thank you to all the great staff at Layana, you are the best, you made us feel so special. A special mention to Angsar, David, Attsara, Don, Wanna, Aoi, Tulong, Sumalai.

Unassuming paradise!

We stayed at the Layana for 3 nights of a 24 night trip in Thailand.... I could have happily spent all 24 at the Layana. The position on Long Beach on Koh Lanta was perfect. We loved the welcome from the Manager, the subtle nod to wellbeing, the room layout / decor and all the facilities and amenities - including a great gym and spa. The restaurant was fantastic - great spot on the beach, well priced and really good food. The little touches with bells on the beach for service and the hourly poolside / beachside treats, and sundowner snacks were really appreciated. The cocktails were amazing! It was a nice walk down the beach to other bars / restaurants on Koh Lanta. Absolutely loved it and will definitely be one of your many returning guests!!!
