We had a lovely honeymoon here in February and would definitely recommend this to friends. We then met our villa host Ae, who took us to a Ocean View Pool Villa on the top of the cliff (we had requested a high one and it was nice they considered this) however it faced the opposite direction of the resort, overlooking...

We visited Banyan Tree Ko Samui and had a brilliant time, cherishing every minute. What made the holiday for us in many ways was the level of attention and service we received from all of the staff, from the reception to the buggy drivers and most especially the staff in the Sands restaurant nothing was too much trouble. The food... More

We stayed in one of the Deluxe Pool Villas, which come with, you guessed it - your own private dipping pool overlooking the lush green gardens and beach. The villa layout was spacious, with a private entrance, separate indoor and outdoor living areas, bedroom and a huge open bathroom equipped with double vanities, rain shower and soaking tub. All this... More

Great location. Beautiful pool villa with view. Amazing staff and service. Good food. What's not to like? Perhaps the steep and scary buggy ride to the villa twice a day but that's just been picky. Stay in a lot of 5 star hotels and this is right up there. Little bit out of town but no bad thing. Taxi's readily... More

Quite simply the best long weekend break I have ever had. Stunning location. Dream ocean view from Royal Banyan ocean view villa, astonishing sunrises viewed from your bed . Outstanding staff. Great facilities. All reasonably priced for the quality provided.

We enjoyed especially the villa, its location (the view) and the fact that we could be there privately (undisturbed), the service, standard and functionality. Employee at Banyan Tree Samui Hotel and Resort, was 100% focused on providing high service on a quiet and very pleasant way to their guests.

My wife and I revisted this Hotel for the second time in a year in February staying for a week. We so enjoyed our first stay so much that we built a Far East Holiday around BT Ko Samui. Everything is just perfect, the property has beautiful individually designed Villas - you can even open the slding doors in front... More

Our 3rd stay in a Banyan Tree hotel, whereby BT Samui hits the mark. The resort is fantastically located and nestled on hills around a private bay. Our villa with pool and whirlpool was not only very well maintained but in perfect condition. Therefore already a highlight as such. Its location was unbelievable and offered breathtaking views on the sea,... More

Imagine waking from the best nights sleep ever in silky cotton sheets in an oversized bed. Then imagine getting out of bed and opening your curtains and looking out onto the prettiest clear blue bay with its own little white private beach. Imagine sliding open your glass doors and stepping straight into your very own infinity pool and then drying... More
