For true escapism, the Layana Resort and Spa has it all. Nestled on the peaceful island of Koh Lanta Yai on the west coast, the resort is situated on a three-kilometre stretch of white sand beach. There are 51 beautifully designed guestrooms that are surrounded by tropical gardens and the sounds of waves washing onto the shore. The salt-water infinity pool is the perfect place to relax with a good book, as staff serve you refreshing fruit drinks from the Sundowner Bar and Lounge. For those that pack light, the resort’s library is available for book and DVD hire, and offers a quiet corner to relax and read a newspaper. The Tides Restaurant is exquisitely designed with al fresco dining options, and serves delicious and traditional Thai food right on the beachfront.
The resort’s newly renovated Linger Longer Spa with new 'Wellness Zone' is a perfect haven to relieve your stresses and worries, as it offers treatments, facials and massages in a peaceful garden setting. The treatments, house in six separate rooms, are of the highest quality and the fully trained staff blend a range of Eastern and Western techniques to encourage physical and mental wellbeing.
The spa also boasts a sauna, Jacuzzi and a sumptuous hydro massage pool. The second half Olympic size lap pool is ideal for exercise sessions or just lounging and enjoying nutritious refreshments from the brand new Healthy Juice Bar. For a touch of natural delight, Layana Resort Lanta now has a new “Baan Ra-Mard Pier.” For more active days on Koh Lanta, the resort can arrange an assortment of excursions including kayaking, motorcycling, scuba diving, snorkelling, elephant trekking, sunset cruises and Thai cooking lessons.
