Perfect

Denmark

Perfect hotel right on Long Beach. The people working on this hotel are the real gem of making this a very nice resort. Beach is perfect. Rooms and food are good. Drinks are ok. Note that this hotel has both English and German menus and pictures of all the food and drinks.

Simply the Best!

Davos, Switzerland

Visited Layana for the first time and was very, very impressed. Our villa was clean, functional and tastefully designed. Ansgar, the GM and Khun Nathaya welcomed us at arrival and made sure we feel welcome. Khun Tour kindly showed us the resort and room. We also met Patrick, the charming Executive Chef and the newly appointment Restaurant Manager, in the evening and morning. Also enjoyed a “Prana Vital Energy“ Massage at the Spa - highly recommended. Besides the amazing location, two pools and peaceful environment, what makes Layana so unique is indeed the amazing team. Will we recommend Layana to friends? Definitely yes! Will we return? Yes, as soon as possible!
