This boutique resort faces a white sandy beach, surrounded by manicured tropical gardens with wooded hills as the backdrop. The pavilion rooms are roomy with goose down duvets, a daybed, and balconies with garden or mountain views. The infinity saltwater pool is lovely, and the staff brings iced towels, water, and fruit to your sun bed. You will find excellent restaurants along the beach, but the resort provides some of the best Thai and international dishes on the island with a chef visiting your table to ensure all is the best. Great snorkeling, diving, and kayaking are available as well as a wonderful trip to Phi Phi Island. Or just relax and allow yourself to be pampered in the splendor that is Layana Resort & Spa - Adults Only.
"All the staff were very friendly and welcoming."

Paradise but at a price”
If money is no object then this is the place for you. The staff are extremely friendly, helpful and attentive without being intrusive. Cleanliness 10/10 and I am fussy! We ate in the hotel every evening as the food was so good and the breakfasts were the best we had during our 3 week sightseeing holiday in Thailand. We did try and go on an organised boat trip but unfortunately not enough people signed up for the trip so it was cancelled. I can understand that from a business perspective it wasn't financially viable to run the trip but nonetheless a little disappointing. In fairness, this was stated at the time that we booked the trip. All that said, if you are looking for a luxury break (albeit expensive) with no children then Layana Resort and Spa would be the perfect place. We had a great time and would love to return.

A must stay in Ko Lanta ”
We stayed here 4 nights and didn’t want to leave! The resort is just beautiful, the room was well put together with everything you needed. The staff were so attentive to everything, remembered our names, our daily coffee order. Breakfast included was by far the best we had in Thailand and can’t forget the amazing sunsets from the bar over half price drinks. A must stay and we will be back!!

Lovely island getaway”
We spent 7 days here in Sept, 2018 for our 13th wedding anniversary. Our room was even set up to welcome us for a happy anniversary, with flowers, champagne and chocolates. A great surprise to both me and my husband. We had a great experience at Layana Resort and Spa. The hotel staff was amazing, great English and always available. The rooms were spotless and serviced twice a day. The breakfast was out of this world. We ate at the Resort most evenings for dinner because the food and service was so incredible. The pools were so relaxing and pool staff so attending. The sunsets over the ocean make for a perfect happy hour on the terrace. We will definitely stay here again in the future. We highly recommend staying at Layana when visiting Koh Lanta Island.
Dear Jamie, Thank you very much for your review. Again, happy anniversary! I am delighted that you chose to celebrate such a special occasion with us. Our team will look forward to welcoming you again and would ascertain that your next stay with us will be as enjoyable as the last one. Best regards, Suphawadee Niratphai Executive Secretary
Perfect Resort for a long relaxing weekend”
lovely location, perfectly maintained with outstanding service. Stephan and his team offer best services in a best in class infrastructure. The two pools, the fitness, the spa, the leisure activities and the food is just great. I advise to get the resort to organise your pickup at Krabi airport. It is the same price as a local taxi but with the full service of a best in class resort.
Excellent staff and facilities”
Everything was so good. I am unable I find any cons except that for this low season the beach and the sea was not accessible but this is not the hotel's fault. In fact the quietness and peace was very much enjoyable! Love this place and will return.
Comfortable, great location kind attentive staff”
We stayed 9 days here and loved everyday. The beach is beautiful and great for long walks. The staff was outstandingly attentive. The boat trips on the hotel fast boat was very well done. A bit of advice, don't waste your time with an outside company for the islands trips. The hotel's trip is beyond comparison and very well done.
Our 3rd time to Layana”
We are always delighted to stay at Layana! They keep making upgrades and improvements over the past several years since we last visited; in particular the spa has expanded and remodeled! We always enjoy the pool and though the beach was too rough this time for swimming; we were able to still walk the beach in the moonlight....We always leave our holiday feeling refreshed and rejuvenated from our stay. Thank you Layana!
Luxury hotel in Ko Lanta”
Stay in Layana was great. From the welcoming at Krabi airport to the end, the service made us feel special. Check in was a breeze, luggage were waiting for us in our room. The room is spacious and was having a view on the very nice garden. In the dining room, all the tables have a view on the ocean, and the 3km beach (when it's not high tide). The menu is extensive and covers Thai and Western food, the food is excellent. The bar next door offers a great way to relax while enjoying a drink. The swimming pool is quite long (around 30m) and there are more than enough chairs to accommodate all the guests. It was really an enjoyable stay, with excellent value for money.
great service, nice pool, good deal in low season”
So far the best 5star service in every detail. we booked one night in the last minute, and the hotel offered us free pickup from the pier. and we extended 2 more nights because of the great service.Though the spa and day trip is abit too expensive which we didn't try, I think it's worth staying here if you are looking for a super-welcoming experience and great service. In low season,the 5500b one night deal is quite good.
Perfect staff, amazing location and perfect resort”
Staff were so helpful. Small touches like free water and fruit skewers on the beach, great service by the pool, wine tasting night, manager saying goodbye to us, number of activities being offered to us. Rooms were large and beautifully designed. The gardens and general property were breathtaking.
Amazing place with perfect service and breakfast”
the breakfast at layana is the most amazing buffet breakfast i've ever had including breakfasts at a large amount of 5 star resorts. the facilities are great - dvd library, gym, pool, restaurant etc. you'll never run out of free bottled water. the restaurant is good value and great quality. there are other places to eat down the road and down the beach when you feel like leaving the resort. amazing attention to detail.
June 2010 - Layana Resort 2010”
I don't usually complete this kind of survey but the superb quality of everything about Layana Resort moves me to submit some feedback and strongly recommend the place for like-minded travellers. A very relaxing break, staff willing at all times to assist and anticipate (seemiingly!) our every move but at the same time in a discrete and non-stifling way. Even when a light fitting in our room started dripping at the end of a particularly heavy overnight rainstorm, the staff could not have been more helpful in resolving any inconvenience. Also, even though clearly quiet and in need of more guests, atmosphere still very positive and management did not use the opportunity to squeeze us on the extras.
wonderful, beautiful, and romantic”
We stayed at Layana to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Once we arrived, my husband told me, "You've picked a winner!" Our entire week was relaxing, enjoyable, and might I add - romantic. The scenery is as beautiful as the pictures, and we were pleasantly surprised at the garden room. We were most impressed with the fact that they would service the room twice a day! The Thai staff speaks English well and we made many new friends as they were all so personable and friendly. They even offered promotions such as a buy one get one free massage at the spa. With amazing deals like that, you feel like every dollar was well spent! Thanks Layana..we'll be back!
Very good hotel worth to come again”
The service and facilities are very impressive, there are weekly activities calendar offered, include in yoga, thai boxing, long tail cruiser and etc. i have selected boxing course with reasonable price, and there are free bicycles rent at hotel. Food is good and restaurant was beautiful sea view when you enjoy breakfast and you make reservation for dinner. Nice place and I will come again.
Thank you very much for your review. I am very happy to hear that our team and service met your needs and expectations. I am looking forward to having you again as a guest in our hotel. Best regards, Suphawadee Niratphai Executive Secretary
Sub par; comfortable 4* but not a 5*”
Tourist trap. In no way is this a 5* resort bar the service. The rooms are well appointed, but dated and in need of TLC. The resort itself is fine, but well below what I would class as 5* and certainly does not justify the price tag. Please, do not order from the bar menu... Everything is deep fried and served with fries, which taste of the 1000x dishes cooked before it due to the fact the oil clearly hasn't been changed in years. This establishment is like Brighton meets Thailand and NOT 4 Seasons, Mandarin Oriental or even dare I say, Premier Inn... The only saving grace are the staff who are abundant and wonderful.
Dear Alexander Y, Thank you very much for taking the time to share your review with us. I am very sorry to hear that several things throughout your stay did not meet your expectations. Your comments are taken very seriously and will be taken on board in the future. Best regards, Suphawadee Niratphai Executive Secretary
100/100 stay - definitely will come back again if I'm visiting Krabi again”
The hotel pickup service is so classy that it raises the expectation for us going to the hotel and what we experienced later have certainly exceeded our expectation. The staffs speak perfectly fluent English, they even have a native English speaking staff there just in case. We spent 3 nights there but it is nowhere enough for us to enjoy all classes/activities/facilities at Layana. Particularly impressive was the pool which has amazing beach&endless ocean as the background for an ig post, also the YOGA teacher was amazing! We were lucky enough that the class was only opened for my girlfriend and I and I definitely enjoyed it as my first time trying yoga! The YOGA teacher is so well-qualified who has many overseas teaching experience and speak fluent english. So, dont miss out when you visit Layana! Overall, perfect stay and we might even come back to visit Krabi becoz of Layana. :)
Dear Cheuk, WOW! What a wonderful review, we truly appreciate your business and your trust in us. I am very happy to hear that our team and service met your needs and expectations. If you are travelling to our area again soon, don't hesitate to call us. Best regards, Suphawadee Niratphai Executive Secretary
Layana is a premium quality resort where service with a smile really means what it says. The comfort level is excellent, the willingness of management and staff to go that extra distance all add up to a premium experience. Sadly, although a dress code applies in the restaurant for evening, the management seem unable to encourage guests to rise to this simple standard. A collared shirt, dress shorts and appropriate footwear is a simple enough requirement. We had to tolerate bare foot diners in crumpled shirts and shorts and on our last evening, two young men in their short pyjamas??????? T shirts and shorts imprinted with bananas. So, while Layana is a premium resort, this cannot be said for some guests. Loud Chinese yelling into their mobile phones did not add to the dining pleasure either.
Dear James, Thank you for your review and for choosing our hotel. I am happy that you enjoyed your stay and i am looking forward to having you again as a guest in our hotel. Best regards, Suphawadee Niratphai Executive Secretary
Wonderful place, but...”
It's been our 2nd stay in Layana, after we felt in love with it in 2015. Since then some new facilities were built, like 2nd pool and new villas. Everything there is almost perfect except service in their restaurant Tides. It's been the same problem 3 years ago and unfortunately not much has improved - staff's English language skills and overall knowledge of their offer. So many times we couldn't understand each other while ordering food or drinks. For example - they had special offer for German wheat beer (-50%), about which there was an advertisement in the bar. When I ordered it, waiter was looked like she didn't know about it at all. And if you want to ask to make some changes to dishes from their menu, you better speak with chef (by the way - greetings to him!). Food (breakfast included) generally is close to perfection. Prices are closer to Europe's prices, rather than Thai's. Their beach was cleaned every day, so it was tidy. Service at the pool was very good. Spa's great. <3 it
Dear Monika, Thank you very much for your review. I am happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and you did appreciate the changes/improvements from your last stay. We will continue to work hard to improve the level of English of our lovely staff. Our team will look forward to welcoming you again and would ascertain that your next stay with us will be as enjoyable as the last one. Best regards, Suphawadee Niratphai Executive Secretary
There is nothing missing from this amazing hotel. The attention to details is beyond belief, the hotel is so beautiful, the staff are super friendly, the beds are comfy, the position is awesome. Do yourself a favour and make the trip, you won't regret it.
Dear Cathy, Thank you very much for your nice review. We are happy to hear that our team and service met yours needs and expectations.We hope to welcome you back to our little "Paradise" in the near future. Best regards, Suphawadee Niratphai Executive Secretary, Layana Resort & Spa
Heaven is a place called Layana”
This resort is heavenly. The speedboat is the only way to arrive (trust me). From the moment we pulled up to the clean, beautiful sandy beach we were greeted with flower lays, cold towels and a drink and desssert. The staff are attentive (a little too attentive, we received daily calls about logistics and turn down service). The restaurant is delicious!! Highly recommend the bbq dinner in the beach. That was an unforgettable experience. You also have to try the whole white snapper (fried), and all of their fruit smoothies. We are already planning our next trip to Layana.
Dear Sandra, Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a great review. I am very glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and our service met your needs and expectations. We really do try our best to make sure everyone feels special when they stay with us, and our staff are our greatest asset, as they really enjoy what they do. It's the reason why our guests return as often as they do. I will pass a great feedback to my team. And also thank you for recommend our BBQ dinner. I will pass a great feedback to Chef and his team. We look forward to welcoming you again soon. Warm regards from Koh Lanta, Jidapa Eldridge Executive Secretary Layana Resort & Spa
