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

Amazing views from the pool villa and the rooms are stunning. Very friendly typical Thai service and the food at the Saffron Thai restaurant was outstanding. We hardly left the resort as we enjoyed and relaxed so much. Also for our two kids it was a unforgettable stay on Koh Samui.

We stayed at Banyan Tree Samui for 4 nights at the tail end of our honeymoon. The resort/campus is breath taking... villas sprawled out and carved into the hill/mountain side over looking the ocean.

Our four days at this resort were incredible.
