Perfect and dedicated run resort with very friendly, very helpful staff and a almost familiar atmosphere. Service, location (very quiet stretch of beach, bars and restaurants within walking distance), rooms and facilities but the spa was perfect. Us each desire was read off from the eyes. Including the organization of a very highly recommended trip to koh rok. Instead of the in-house 4-Iceland-trip to actively sell, they by an external provider transacted trip recommended and very quickly and uncomplicated together. The kitchen is outstanding. We have only the thai try; special highlight: the curries. Surprisingly good was also the bar. ... Room for improvement, there was only the breakfast. This was with a view of the category not very varied. Especially tea drinkers are given little choice and the somewhat carelessly presented tea bags may be disappointed. For us was the breakfast was perfectly adequate. Conclusion: we felt very well, will eventually go back and stay the next time surely longer! read hotel review

We were due to our large wanderlust stayed in many top hotels around the world, but this exclusive boutique resort is our absolute favorite hotel and we have therefore to include the 'serious' or' our return guests, as it Stefan, the absolutely perfect and friendliest manager you can imagine, is to call. The high proportion of regular guests speaks for the layana. In this hotel everything was simply great - you can't only person of layana team emphasize, as they beat all in terms of friendliness and helpfulness. Due to the good value for money for the additional costs the ... restaurant in the evening is always very busy and there were very few guests at the neighbouring locals, of course, cheaper, but the ambience clearly slope. For absolute well-being with the newly built spa and, of course, very friendly ladies at the well-trained. read hotel review

    The beautiful long beach is located right in front of the door and invites you to go for walks. The section was optically of casuarina-lined beaches khao lak reminds. Despite peak season it was very quiet, as well as on the whole island. There are shopping opportunities in saladan, to reach by taxi or Tuk-tuk (100 Baht/way). At the beach there were also a few restaurants (rarely used) and massage (not used).

  • Gastronomy

    Breakfast is served on the terrace with views of the beach and sea - so can start the day. The quality of the food is excellent and is on the european taste aligned. The lunch we mostly in the hotel 'sand bar' eaten, the newly opened. Evening ate we in great atmosphere in the restaurant, the menu offered thai cuisine, fish and steaks. The price-performance ratio was unbeatably good for a hotel of this category, for example, curry dishes with supplement to 350 Baht, seafoodplatte about 800 Baht (inclusive of tax and service).

    The Infinity-pool with adjacent entspannungsbecken offers a nice refreshment. There were always enough comfortable beach chairs and umbrellas available, the condition is, of course, perfect. In the gym, there are a variety of free weights and some fitnessgeräte, whereby we were in other 5 star resorts partly still better standards found. The layana resort runs a variety of trips around, we booked the 'sundowner cruise' by the mangrovengebiet the island including sparkling wine and wine. Next to the 'sand bar', the resort offers massages on the beach 400-450 Baht per hour, perfect for the small massage in between. If you have more quality and atmosphere to experience would like, should in any case go to the spa area to visit. Here is the treatment anamnesebogen completed around individually on the health needs of the customers can enter into. The 90 minute treatment was an absolute dream, more relaxation is not.

    Nice, very homely decorated rooms with very comfortable bed, large balcony and all amenities. A real highlight was the pillows menu, in which we from different pillows various hardness grades to select. The hygiene and cleanliness was also in the room excellent.

    The service in the layana would have no doubt Oscar deserves. The friendliness, competence and foreign language knowledge would have a 6. star and are hard to beat. General manager Stefan heintze and his team are always in sichweite and if necessary on the spot. Customer proximity yes, einengender and excessive service no, simply wohldosiert. The family atmosphere at layana us cast their spell over.

Never before have i in a holiday so friendly (not to be confused with a fake friendliness) and personable and been accompanied, as here! The resort is discreetly into the landscape inserted and the maximum 102 guests house. You get with the terms of the apartments have a personal wi-fi access, with which you in the entire property, even on the beach chairs at the beach on-line can be. The guests came during our holiday time there were mainly from the Switzerland, the average age was estimated about all guests in mid-end of 40 years. We booked the hotel transfer ... from the airport 'Krabi' the resort (approximately one hour with an air-conditioned minivan - chilled towels and frozen, in-house water bottles included in the price), then a ride with the speedboat from about 20 minutes! The alternative (it is actually no noteworthy) would be around a 2.5 hour drive in a minibus with x-people and two ferry trips. We were greeted on the beach of the resort, the beach bar on a cocktail accompanied. In a lovely relaxed atmosphere were a few fundamentals to the times, the happy hour (17-19 hours) and other facilities mentioned. Our luggage was in this time already for the apartment for. With a small electric vehicle us in the near future, the beautiful resort and explained everything. Of an on-site spa, a fitness room, the front desk, to a library (free of charge). read hotel review

    The 'restaurant', where in the morning the breakfast buffet is, serves evening restaurant for dinner. During the day you can, with views of the sea, but also to sit and eat/drink. The breakfast buffet is very rich and one can between 6 fresh juices (including guava, mango etc.) select. With a card, what the place is, can one also to the chef and a fresh omelet prepared, which brought to the table will be. There are the classic european cuisine, but also the asia-bar. Here you can have a delicious curry food ;-) This can be but also from lunch in the 'sand bar'. Here we were often and have either in the lounge furniture sat, or teaktischen. In the evening there were snacks, or but also from the same card, in the restaurant. In the background is cosy music, then with house sounds, without the it but annoying. You can sit here comfortably with the feet/flip-flops in the sand and could eat and drink, as you want. There is also the beach bar/pool bar. Between 17 and 19 hours, there are the happy hour (s), where it is already cheap beers and cocktails for half price. Here, the day the end and one can wonderful sunsets...

    The layana is located on a 3 kilometer long sandy beach. There were, thank god, no high rise hotels on koh lanta, but exclusively resorts, which is great in the nature here. Of the boat you can see it best. In the morning at 6:30 a. m. one sees some runners walk along the beach, before the temperatures will rise significantly. Face the sea standing to the right, are a few beach bars and resorts, but none as nice (subjective) as the bars of the layana. In the evening we twice somewhere else to eat, which is very tasty (the 'thai cat', almost at the end of the section and to foot about 15 minutes along the beach). In order to 'shopping' for 50 Baht per person at the reception a taxi to saladan order. There you can, if you the main road to the end is, in some restaurants, the for holzpfählen are built and to the water intrusion. Otherwise there are many ' tourist shops' with billigartikeln ad nauseam. The you can certainly once, but you didn't have to. Since these things were important, but the attention to the recovery was, there is also in this category 6 suns. The peace and quiet in the layana was exactly d a s what we were looking for (and found it)!

    The service was incredible! J e d e individual employee and j e d e r single employee was genuine friendliness hard to beat. All desires were exceeded and fulfilled, before you articulated has. At layana resort one has the feeling, that the staff themselves extremely friendly with one another. The rooms were twice daily cleaned - everything perfect. Also with english you got on everywhere, a lady at the reception spoke even german. We had no complaints. Once i have a room-safe (even-inflicted) problem. 2 minutes later was already someone with us and solved the problem. Sensational.

    Animation gave it fortunately none, perhaps also linked like, that children under 18 years old are not allowed access to the resort. This was, among other things, one of the reasons why we support the layana decided. As 99.8% of all hotels the children hot, i think it is perfectly okay and relaxing, this resort is different. The pool area was a dream! The beach chairs from high-quality wood, great service - every half hour, you could get cold water refilled - and again früchtespiesse - incredible!

    The rooms (in our case the garden -Pavillon) were 'super clean', very large and in great design. Everything you need (and more) was available. A large bathroom with walk-in shower from granite - sensational!

The hotel is a little gem and here you will find peace (18 +) and relaxation on the beautiful beach. %singlelinebreak % We can the many rave only agree and is now clear, why the hotel was constantly fully booked and so many regular guests. %singlelinebreak % We have the shuttle from the hotel to phuket to koh lanta directly with the layana booked and were greeted by a very friendly driver promptly picked us up. Less than 3 hour drive with the very comfortable layanavan to the pier to Krabi passed as in the flight and the speedboat from ... the hotel brought us after a further 20 minutes directly to the beach in front of the hotel. There we were already the begrüßungskommitee consisting of managers and staff, as a warm front desk we had in any hotel! At all we want a big compliment to the whole team express, all are very efficient, very friendly and always endeavors the guest each desire from the eyes. You can tell, that not only the guests, but also the mostly longstanding staff comfortable. Almost the entire management is german, always present and always available. The rooms were very clean, if not a wow effect when entering takes place. One notices here, that it is an older hotel and the amenities in the bathroom could use a update get, but this is carp on a high level. %singlelinebreak % At the pool there were constantly iced water, cold towels and fruit and it was immediately someone with towels ready and helped with the position of the beach chairs and umbrellas. %singlelinebreak % The beach is very nice and spacious and there are plenty of restaurants where you can get cheap and very good time outside of the resorts to eat. the breakfast you sat directly by the sea and the buffet was very good and the selection varied from day to day. The mainly german guests, it was quickly in nice conversations and because it is during a full house not more than 100 of it, knows fast everyone. %singlelinebreak % At this point best regards to the swiss-bavarian couple from Zürich! %singlelinebreak % The layana highly recommend and met the personal atmosphere very appreciated and love. Here one feels from beginning to welcome and very comfortable and we can hardly expect here again to return. An absolute dream hotel! %singlelinebreak % Many thanks to the layana team for the beautiful time, here vacation dreams come true. read hotel review
