Stay in Banyan tree for 4 days, first class accommodation and facilities, foods are tasty and price is reasonable. the most important is the kind employees! Not many tourists there, you can enjoy a private and leisure time here. Highly recommended. My family had a wonderful holiday ever.

BT Samui is our favorite Banyan Tree property in Thailand. A great place for a luxury weekend or to have a wedding... Beautiful private beach, and location at the south-west of the island, means sunrise and sunset views. Don't forget to go to Saffron for dinner.
