From the moment we arrived at the airport in Koh Samui on our honeymoon, the Banyan Tree really made us feel special. They'd provided us a complimentary upgrade on our transfer and we were picked up in a stretched Mercedes with ice cold water and some scented flannels (just what you need after a 20hr journey!) and whisked us away...

This property is a real find. It is relatively new with beautifully appointed villas with private pools and stunning sunrise views of the Gulf of Thailand. The resort's private beach offers peace and quiet, the restaurant choices and food kept us satisfied for a 5 night stay - great breakfasts, gourmet/fusion Thai at Saffron, casual beach side lunches and dinners,...

You have a lot to choose from when it comes to five star resorts on Koh Samui and we have stayed in just about all of them over the years we have been living on the Island. We are local, so local in fact we live in the same postcode as the Banyan Tree Resort. We have no affiliation with... More

Spectacular views of the sea, lovely food, one of the best massages I've ever had. Friendly and knowledgeable staff who go out of their way to make guests feel welcome and special. The villas are on the hill, overlooking Lamai Beach. The best Banyan Tree I've seen to date. Too bad I didn't stay overnight.

We just had our wedding at Banyan Tree Samui. We have never visited the hotel prior to choosing it as the venue for our wedding. The sole reason we chose it (other than the photos) is that the staff (Rewadee) are super responsive on email. That was a main reason why I picked this place as I would not have... More

Our 3 days at this resort was nothing short of amazing - beginning from the transfer at the airport all the way till the day of departure. Everything was carefully planned and we had a seamless experience which exceeded our expectations. Our Villa Host, Geng, was always there for us when we needed his assistance.

A very high quality resort, tarnished by poor management. Very clearly the worst Banyan Tree Resort I have ever stayed at and probably the last time I would ever choose to stay at one. Food at Sands was not great. Most painful experience: NO TRANSPORTATION. This is a sizeable resort where one needs to move around by golf carts. Yet,... More
