3rd visit and still amazing

Wolverhampton, United Kingdom

We have recently returned from our 3rd stay at Layana (2009 2012 our other 2 times) and I’m pleased to say it’s just as superb now as it was before. We stayed in a deluxe garden view room and the rooms are really spacious and kept spotless with daily cleaning and an evening turndown service. We were even asked what time we’d like turndown to give us the the least disruption. Every night we came back to a lovely presented room with a small sweet treat each. The grounds and pool area are still kept spotlessly clean too and everyone you pass greets you with a smile and a ‘sawasdee’. There are plenty of sun beds around the pool and on the beach too, so absolutely no need to go out to reserve sun beds. The pool staff bring you fresh iced water every so often too and there’s normally an afternoon treat. (The ice creams were lovely!!). The bar area and restaurant are also immaculately kept and again the staff are always ready to serve, but without being intrusive. Breakfast is held in the restaurant and the choice and quality of food on offer is superb. It’s nice to mix it up as breakfasts can get repetitive in hotels. That never happened to us though. Lunch and evening meals were also of very high quality and there are 2 happy hours in the bar. I recommend sitting and watching the sunset during happy hour. Beautiful! There are also some very good restaurants and bars on Long Beach so if you fancy lunch or dinner away from the hotel you have the option. Our favourites were Thai Cat and The Fat Turtle. If you fancy a trip or need a taxi or tuk-tuk ordering the hotel will happily arrange this for you. We did a couple of boat trips with the hotel which we enjoyed thoroughly and met some great new friends on them. The trips we did were the Sundowner cruise and the 4 islands trips. Both were great and we were very well fed and watered too! To sum up Layana is still one of our favourite hotels in the World. The staff are the biggest asset and it was nice to see some faces we recognised from past visits. I’m 100% certain we will be back again in the future. Thanks to everyone for looking after us and yet again making our holiday unforgettable. You deserve all of the great reviews you get.

Good location to explore Koh Lanta

London, United Kingdom

Nice hotel in a great location. Beach front views, nice rooms & pools. Great location for exploring the island. Seemed a bit cheeky to charge extra for yoga and bike hire - would've expected them to be included given the price. Otherwise no major grumbles.
