    Our opinion

    Hotel description

    Enter the serene world of the Banyan Tree in Phuket, where ancient oriental disciplines combine with warm Thai hospitality. The super-efficient service is friendly and unobtrusive; resort hosts cater for your every need from booking your spa treatments to arranging a round of golf. The setting is exotic: a tranquil hideaway bordered by the dazzling white beaches and the turquoise lagoon for which Phuket is famed. The tropical garden of the Banyan Tree Spa offers the perfect sanctuary to indulge and rejuvenate both mind and body. The spa has adopted a holistic approach to physical and spiritual wellbeing, drawing on traditional Asian techniques that have been passed down over the centuries, together with ancient aromatic oils and herbs and spices. The Treatment Menu is comprised of Thai and Balinese massages as well as a version of the European Swedish massage which stimulates and soothes. The Tamarind Restaurant serves delicious and nourishing spa cuisine in a partly covered outdoor setting that resembles a Japanese ornamental garden, with the tables positioned around a central pool. Mediterranean, Indian and Thai favourites are also served. The resort boasts a wide range of different restaurants offering a range of cooking styles and ambience. The Saffron serves an eclectic mix of Thai and south-east Asian gastronomy while the Watercourt offers a lavish American and Asian style buffet breakfast or Mediterranean cuisine in the evening. If you're staying in one of the Banyan Tree’s stunning villas with its own garden, pool or Jacuzzi, in-villa dining is a romantic experience not to be missed. Savour a champagne breakfast or enjoy an evening barbecue beneath the fragrant palms. The luxuriously-appointed villas are perched on the edge of the lagoon in lush tropical gardens and are decorated comfortably and stylishly using wicker furniture and honey-coloured wood. The thirteen Spa Pool Villas are equipped with their own private spa pavilion with sauna and steam room where treatments can be enjoyed in comfort and privacy. The Banyan Tree is ideal for both couples and families and offers excellent facilities and attentive service.

    Other information

    Banyan Tree Spa
    The Banyan Tree Spa occupies the perfect setting in which to be soothed and inspired. Relaxing and rejuvenating massages and body treatments take place against the background of a tropical garden. The philosophy is to create a luxury environment where guests feel at ease and can appreciate the beauty of the island while they are being nurtured. The intimate spa pavilions provide privacy and blend seamlessly into the surrounding nature. The treatments are designed to harness the healing powers of nature and focus on a holistic approach to rejuvenation.
    Choose from a range of massages, body rubs and facials or a two or three hour programme which combines a series of treatments. A session in the spa includes a cooling mint footbath in the relaxation room and a soothing herbal tea.

    Signature Treatments
    Royal Banyan
    This signature therapy draws on the massage traditions used for centuries in the Royal Thai Palaces. The therapist begins with an oil-free Thai acupressure massage to improve blood circulation and alleviate muscle tension. Banyan herbal pouches, filled with lemongrass, cloves and coriander, are then used to apply warm sesame oil to the body while the Banyan massage contributes to the balancing of mind, body and soul.

    Harmony Banyan
    Consists of a massage where two therapists work in harmony to massage the body. Maintaining balanced pressure the two therapists work each side of the body in unison.

    Thai Ginger Healer
    The core of this treatment to improve circulation is an hour-long stretching Yoga massage, based upon ancient Ayurvedic principles. To soothe aching muscles, steamed herbal pouches are applied on the body in an herbal heat treatment. An enriching Thai Herbal Wrap containing fresh plai - traditionally used in Thai healing treatments - acts as a moisturizer, restoring the skin's natural balance and radiance.

    Banyan Body Firmer
    A treatment created exclusively for women. Begins with an abdominal scrub followed by a massage using slimming creams and finally a firming mask is applied. This is then repeated on the chest. To complete the treatment is a choice of a Green Tea Facial or an anti ageing collagen toning facial.

    Banyan Cleansing Facial
    This signature facial treatment provides a deep cleansing of all skin types. A purifying scrub and soothing mask are applied to the face as well as the neck and shoulders in order to relax and revitalise the skin.
