The Layana Resort and Spa is nestled on Koh Lanta Yai Island in Mu Koh Lanta National Park. The park is a marine archipelago, home to verdant tropical rainforests and undersea kingdoms of colourful coral rich in natural marine diversity.

The resort enjoys a spectacular beachfront location on a 3-kilometer long white sand beach, situated about 2 hours south of Krabi International Airport.

Environmentally-conscious design throughout the property results in a simple and elegant Thai atmosphere; alfresco architecture combining with contemporary design to provide an open, cool and natural feel.

A haven of pampered indulgence, tranquil vistas, manicured landscapes and personalized service. Here warm turquoise seas gently lap white sandy beaches showcased by lush green vegetation and soaring blue skies.

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves.

Review:   Beautiful beach resort. Came on Honeymoon for 7 nights of a 3 week holiday and loved every minute! From the 5 star pick up at the airport to the greeting from thr GM at check in. Make sure and rent a moped and explore the island, hotel offer this service. Spa is fantastic, staff are hospitable and very extremely helpful. Hotel very clean with beautiful grounds. Bring plenty of insects repellent! Highly recommend.

Review:   Spent ten days here and have really deliberated over the score. On the assumption that 4 🌟 represents a seal of approval, I'm afraid it would have to be 3. Some of the staff were very friendly and proactive but the place has had a change in its senior management team quite recently and I suspect the place is in transition. There was also an unpleasant smell of drains during our stay, I have to believe that's also a temporary state of affairs though. The gym was decent for a resort of that size but the place as a whole just really lacks the polish of the Pimalai, the island's other luxury resort. It's worth noting that the island itself is more geared towards the backpacker end of the market.
