wonderful location and excellent architecture in very astonishing surrondings. A good chef (in one of the restaurant) to discover another contemporary version of thai cuisine. And a real clear sea without ugly jelly fish at last ! Very nice personnal with some good attentions like water and fruit free services on the beach and the pools. A spa too expensive : lack of simple thai massage affordable
The services is excellent. Very natural and comfortable.
Spa was excellent.
Super friendly staff, amazing property with a spectacular beach and amenities.
The resort was beautiful, the staff was top notch, and the food was great. A real value for the money. I would gladly stay again and highly recommend this resort. It was a little far from the town of Saladan, but in a way that was a blessing because it was very quiet.
The staff was great in arranging meals for special dietary needs.
We liked to stay at Rawi Warin with our children. Very nice hotel and place was nice and peacefull. Pool area was also very nice. Good choice for the families with the kids.
Excelent garden/park, a lot of vegetation, water, cascades. Even the basic rooms had superb sea view, also from the bathtub, from up the hill. Large, very nice "infinity pool". Staff was very helpful, all spoke good english. Plentiful good quality breakfast buffet and excellent, inexpensive evening restaurant. It's really a hit for this kind of money. Beach is kind of rocky
The facilities are quite beautiful and the staff were very attentive. The pool is a big plus. The beach is quite rocky and so not possible to swim in the ocean. There are many good spots to eat outside the hotel nearby. Sometimes our food orders were wrong. Really not much to complain about.
nice location,low occupation with guests so the staff was probably reduced and the menu limited.
The staff was friendly, the grounds were beautiful. Rooms are nice and clean. The beach in this area is really nice, if you go a little more north to the next beach it becomes very shelly.. so this beach is nice at the hotel. Ko Lanta was really fun. Very laid back vibe, still areas of untouched beaches. You must rent a motor bike, it is so fun to drive along the beach and check put each little town along the way. Driving the whole west coast of the island takes only and hr or two. We really enjoyed that part of our time in Ko Lanta. The hotel offers motor bike rentals on site, which make it really convenient. Local traffic is mild so it's a good place to start riding, vs a busy crazy city like Bangkok. We didn't eat much at the hotel but we did eat at two places near the hotel thay we really liked one was called Pinky's the other Sonya The hotel in my opinion, was more of a 4-star rather than a 5 star Resort. Also depending on the room thats booked you may be at the top of the hill which means long walks back and forth between the rooms if you don't want to wait for a buggy. The extra cost of the pond rooms is well worth it for location convenience. We actually had our room moved down, because the walk/ uphill trek was so strenuous. The breakfast is included in the morning and served outside which tends to be really warm even early am. Also be sure to specify your bed preference when you check it, we were on our honeymoon and they initially gave us a room with two twin beds and never asked our preference at check in, another reason why we have to be moved.
Great hotel, room was spacious and clean, conveniently located at the middle of the island. Great pool. Very helpful staff. A bit expensive, not very lively. It is necessary to have a car or a motorbike to move around the island as you cannot go anywhere by foot.
This is the best beach in Lanta, the sea is the best in Thailnad. The hotel design is very nice. The location of hotel comfortable, the restourants and bars from the hotel beach just in walking distance.
spacious villas, interesting design, proximity to the city We lived in villas. the hotel was renovated, a lot of noise. rates in patches of repair, no hot water in the evenings. Breakfast poor. beach is very short.
Good Location, beach was 3 min walk from suite. pool just outside the window of suite (upgrade from balcony to pool in low season). Near from the "town". Good place to stay and relax and good value of money, however was not impressive... Low season so: Many many maintenance and construction on the resort; SPA was close; no activities on the resort; very poor breakfast with almost no options...
Free city shuttle. Great breakfast and coffee. Free WiFi & printer & kanues & mountain bikes. Room names are confusing (I expected pool access but only had pool view) ;-p
Friendly staff, our room connected with the pool which made taking a cooling swim so easy, breakfast area overlooking the sea in 3 directions was fabulous and I miss it already. lack of evening bar/focal meeting point.
location, pool, rooms space, cleanliness, view to the beach staff speaks english very poor, no buffet breakfast on low season
The hotel is perfect with beautiful swimming pools, the bedroom has a lot of space, the beach is nice and the spa service is great. I also loved the food and the crew is really nice. Only two things: the staff do not speak a clear English and sometimes it was a little bit stressful. The second point is that the resort is really far from the airport, so you have to be sure you have extra days (2) to spend reaching there. But I really recommend the hotel.
Shuttle Service to Saladan Hotel is quite far away from the main spots, it doesn't have a sandy beach and you have to walk a lot between the facilities(or be driven by carts)
The private beach was quite small and a little rocky; the public one was big but it was almost impossible to swim there because its water wasn't deep enough and there were lots of mosquitos. Then location is very distant (about 2,5 hours from Krabi airport) - but this is not a problem if you travel by the hotel comfortable van with air conditioner and complimentary drinks. Really nothing to do in the area - just a small village nearby with several dirty "restaurants". Also hotel prices are quite expensive (about 4 times higher than Thai average) and do not include 17% tax and service charge.
The service was excellent. The best I've received from any hotel. The accomodation and food were also of a very high standard. Staff were always friendly, efficient and willing to help with any issue.
Food was fantastic, one of the best breakfast buffets ever! Accomodation perfect--everything spotlessly clean. Staff of all kinds were warm and welcoming and would do anything to help. The owners live on the site and mix with the patrons--very friendly and take a lot of care of the facilities. Loved that tips were included in the costs--I hate having to carry extra cash around for tips and trying to work out what would be fair. Nothing
Small resort with excellent pool. Pool side staff very attentive and everyone did their best to ensure no detail was overlooked. The beach was heavily polluted with every kind of plastic bottle, debris and muck. Although somewhat cleared on the beach directly infront of the hotel, most debris was simply pushed to the sides. Walking on the beach was distasteful. This ruined an otherwise excellent resort, but if you cannot go on the beach, why go to a beach resort?
In addition to adults only, which is critical, the hotel literally did everything right. I've never seen a resort get it just perfect the way Layana did. What is most impressive is that we found the staff incredibly attentive, but only when they needed to be. They did not hover or interfere, but were always there when needed. And literally every detail, from the manager meeting us at the boat landing on the beach, in-room check in, activities organization, to a full time staff person at the airport to usher us through the check in process, was flawless. Absolutely nothing. It was perfect. And I am a pretty critical traveler.
The presentation, cleanliness, the pool, restaurant/bar and the Spa,
Very relaxing and friendly attentive staff, lovely boutique hotel for couple only
The service was the best my husband and I have ever experienced at a resort. Food was gorgeous and location on the beach, lovely. Everyone was incredibly friendly. It was our delayed honeymoon, got married in feb this year and they really spoilt us. it was quite sad to leave. The room was lovely but thought it would be a little more special considering the price.
The most relaxing and romantic resort for a couple. The staff, food, rooms, facilities were first class. A delight to stay.
excellent food at reasonable prices
The hotel was clean and the staff were friendly. Nice pools and proximity to the beach was good. Food was good but expensive compared to other restaurants outside the resort. Because it was out of season they only had one restaurant open. Would have liked to relax at the bar in the evening but it was not open. The gym facilities were very old and need updating!
A great welcome, with a golf buggy collecting us from the entrance, welcome drinks and cool towels. Lovely room, 2 nice pools, right on a big beach, walkable from the small port town. Be warned, the breakfast portions are massive - we ordered bacon, tomatos and salad, only to get a full plate each of each item (along with everything else we'd ordered!) Sauna & steam were 'payable', not in the gym. Restaurant by the pool was expensive and not the best food we'd had, kids were racing round our table, and the music was tacky - go else where for a romantic beachside meal. Otherwise, great place to stay!
The beach. It was crowded with families with young children. Internet was $7 per hour. Restaurant was very expensive, with incredibly slow service.
Maya Koh Lanta is a great place to stay on Island – the location is superb – right on the beach and in walking distance to lots of shops and wonderful bars and resturants, its also fantastic value for money. The rooms and bathroom are of a good size and your every need is catered for by the great staff. Mr Nice – the Manager – is brilliant and will help you out with anything you request – in the run up to your stay (I sent numerous e mails about different things and he always got back to me very promptly) and while you are actually there. I would definitely recommend this hotel and I would love to stay there again!
