Layana Resort & Spa 

Halcyon days for adults-only

This intimate and stylish spa resort is a haven of romance and relaxation.

Elegant, tranquil and positioned on one of Koh Lanta Yai’s finest unspoilt beaches, this resort is the perfect desert island-style retreat. Spend your days lazing on the pristine mile-long beach before heading to the newly renovated Linger Longer Spa. If you like to keep active on holiday, the new Wellness Zone features a large saltwater lap pool, yoga platform and juice bar.

Why we love Layana Resort & Spa

  • Set on a two-mile tranquil beach fringed with palm trees on pretty Koh Lanta Yai, it has an irresistibly soothing atmosphere

  • At the award-winning spa, it’s not just about superb traditional treatments – there’s a hydro massage pool and salt spa as well

  • The activities are just active enough, from gentle sunrise yoga sessions to kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding

  • Eating is a relaxed affair, with an all-day menu in the beachfront restaurant and snacks by the sand and the infinity pool
