The Banyan Tree was exceptional in almost every way. It is slightly tucked away in a kingdom of its own so a taxi ride to town centre would cost around 400 baht, but then do you really have to go anywhere outside the hotel if you're here... We could not fault the rooms. Or the breakfast (amazing selections! Became brunch... More

The Banyan Tree is a wonderful hotel with first class facilities and great service. The main swimming pool is beautiful with amazing views over the ocean and the beach itself clean, golden and picturesque. We never had a problem getting a sunbed. In fact as soon as you arrive there is someone getting you towels, cold water and mints. The... More

A very well run resort with amazing villas. The higher you go up the heel the better the view is. Food at Saffron restaurant is heavenly! Spectacular SPA! It is definitely worth every penny you spend. We signed up for a Thai cooking class which could be one of the best decisions I have ever made.

We stayed at the Banyan Tree for 5 nights in a Royal Villa which had direct views of the ocean. This was one of the most fabulous and relaxing holidays we have had. The villa was outstanding both in terms of its size and utility - we agreed that if it had a kitchen we would easily have just moved... More

Our first city on our honeymoon trip is Samui. We stayed with Banyan Tree and they were instrumental in our celebrations. They helped me host a private dinner on the beach for my beautiful bride and flawlessly coordinated the fireworks show post-dinner.

Beautiful villas and great service. Hotel is situated in a quiet place, with private beach. Spa was awesome + there's many activities on the beach ( such as paddle board, snorkeling, surfing, football, volleyball). The view from our villa was breathtaking. Stayed here 11 nights and definitely would come back again! Loved it!
