We booked a ocean pool villa with "stunning ocean views" We saw Palm trees only, as we were put in a partial view ocean villa, their pics are completely wrong. Hotel made up for the error by upgrading us. But be aware of this when booking as prices between the rooms are significantly different.

We stayed in a room on top of a huge hill overlooking the entire resort grounds and the beach, which was very private and serene. The infinity pool in our room was amazing. We celebrated... More

We just spent 10 days at BT Samui. We loved it! For a long time I was hesitant between the 4 seasons and Banyan Tree, and having spoken on the phone with both hotels, I felt the general attitude and welcoming of Banyan tree was more genuine and personal. I am so happy to have chosen to stay there. The... More
