We spent a week in Banyan Tree Samui. The room, the view, the service, the food, the kids club, etc. We travel Samui every year with the family. Banyan Tree is by far the best hotel we have stayed. If you want to ensure your vacation is risk free of any unpleasant experience, Banyan Tree is the choice!

The Banyan Tree Samui is truly a spectacular property with luxurious features. The Resort consists of decadent Pool Villas, and we were lucky to experience the Hillcrest Pool Villa, which offers commanding views of the azure water of the hotels private lagoon, which is splattered with sumptuous coral reefs. From the pictures of the hotel one can infer the splendid... More

I cannot describe how I fall in love with this hotel. All hotel staff are friendly and very helpful. The villa is clean and has fantastic view. At the beach you can do almost all activities. The restaurants are also amazing, we have a lot of options from the menu card.

You can pay the same amount at other places, but none will compare to this resort. The Banyan Tree Samui is worth every penny. My only regret is not staying here more than one night. You are greeted with first class service, even the General Manager was introducing himself to guests and making you feel welcomed. The estate is set... More

We are leaving today after a four-day visit. Weather has been mostly excellent, and the hotel did not disappoint. This time we had a villa located just under Saffron, the top-notch Thai restaurant. Once you adjust to the beautiful villas and ocean views, the best thing about BT Samui is the friendly & helpful staff. We will be back...

My husband and I came here for a weekend getaway trip. We booked the lowest grade deluxe pool villa. As far as I can tell the design of the first 3 tiers of villas is the same, except the lower grade villas may have semi-obstructed view (too many trees in front) and face the "wrong" direction of the island (not...

We had an excellent stay in Banyan Tree in July 2015. Two adults and two children, we stayed in a deluxe pool villa for 10 nights. It was perfect! Lovely pool at the villa, nice personnel, especially including our villa host Pang.
