    Our opinion

    Hotel description

    The Banyan Tree is a tranquil hideaway bordered by the dazzling white beaches and turquoise lagoon for which Phuket is famed. The resort’s architecture blends traditional Thai-style pavilions with contemporary sensibilities to create buildings that are exotic and fresh. Inside, beautiful wood furniture and rich colours create a warm and relaxing ambience. Surrounded by tropical gardens that run down to the sea, the Banyan Tree focuses on guest relaxation. The spa has adopted a holistic approach to physical and spiritual well-being, drawing upon traditional Asian techniques that have been passed down over the centuries, and complemented by ancient aromatic oils, herbs and spices. Guests can make use of complimentary mountain bikes, ideal for exploring more of the island, or a number of water sports such as snorkelling and canoeing. Seven restaurants ensure that guests have an incredible choice for dining, from the delicious and nourishing spa cuisine of the Tamarind Restaurant to an eclectic mix of Thai and Southeast Asian gastronomy in Saffron. Enjoy a romantic dinner cruise aboard the ‘Sanya Rak,’ the resort’s traditional longtail boat, where traditional music will enchant you as you enjoy the delicious cuisine, sailing through the lagoon as the sun sets. The luxuriously appointed villas are perched on the edge of the lagoon in the lush gardens and are decorated comfortably and stylishly using wicker furniture and honey-coloured wood. This is an ideal choice for a tranquil and restful beach resort that offers excellent facilities.
