This is my 3rd visit to the Banyan Tree and and it's as amazing as my previous visits . This is the first time I have ever stayed in the Deluxe pool villa ( which I do not recommend at all as it has absolutely no view whatsoever . I didn't use the pool because it was so depressing. )... More

Even a whole day of tiring airplane travel wasn't enough to dull the impact of our first sight of the view from the lobby of the Banyan Tree, which overlooks the resort and beach. It's the sort of view that the word "stupendous" was invented to describe. It's almost hypnotic in its effect: you start staring at it and find... More

Just travelling back to London after 10 wonderful nights at this resort. The check-in was very efficient, and our first villa was ready and waiting for us. Travel around the resort is done almost exclusively via golf buggies. You simply call for one when needed. We were never left waiting long. Deluxe villa is very nice. But can feel a... More

I spent a week with my daughter in a villa. The most beautiful and clever thought design ever! The staff were incredibly nice and competent, I suppose this is due mostly to the very nice manager whom we bumped into on the last evening. A true gentleman. To give an idea, the chef from the Sand restaurant understood I was... More

This resort has infinity pools on the balcony of every room. The view from our room, over the bay, was stunning. Service was excellent with the small exception of having to wait 10-15 minutes for a buggy. We often chose to walk instead. The main pool is 35m long and 1.30m deep and often empty as everyone has their own... More

We stayed at three Banyan Tree locations in Thailand over the Easter break, and all were exceptional in terms of facilities and the amazing views over Lamai Bay. Villa was spacious with three rooms and shower, with private swimming pool overlooking the beach. Villa B01 was most convenient as we can walk to the Lobby for drinks and breakfast, and... More
