Fantastic Two Week Stay

Gloucestershire, United Kingdom

Stayed at the Layana for 2 weeks in November and the most amazing time. All the staff are great very attentive and nothing is too much trouble without being intrusive. Special thanks to Khom who looked after us so well at breakfast and kept us supplied with English tea! Thang & Santi who took us on the sunset cruise which was really enjoyable with fizz and great food. It was my parthers 50th birthday during our stay and we had a cake delivered to our room which he loved! Would highly recommend a stay here.

Beautiful resort

Alberta

This resort was an oasis for us after a two week trip travelling around Thailand. A great place to relax and enjoy the beautiful beach. The breakfast was really good but we thought the dinner and the spas were quite expensive for what you get. We went to a couple of restaurants near the hotel and we had some of the best Thai food we've had during our trip!
