The stunning location and fantastic staff made this a wonderful place for our wedding. What a beach! Intendance Bay is gorgeous and we loved how the resort blended into the jungle. The Thai restaurant was so good we ate there 4 out of 5 nights!

We stayed at the Banyan tree for one night in May 2015. We stayed in a beach front villa with private garden, pool and outdoor shower. What is magical about this resort is its splendid and huge white sand beach with breathtaking views over the crystal waters of ocean. However the weather was very windy and impossible to swim in...

The beach elongates with the shifting sands and nature is at... More
