My husband and I was bowled over by the magnificent view the moment we arrived. Upon checking in, all we wanted to do was stay there. Every staff at Banyan Tree was friendly. We had a problem with the wifi and speakers. These were attended to immediately. Everything else was so smooth -- dinner reservations, transportation, spa. And the food... More

We reserved the private villa with ocean view, and the room was just as expected and much has been said so I won't go into the details. The only... More

Wonderful place, spent 7 nights there and everything was just perfect! We had a very romantic getaway and highly recommend this place as a honeymoon destination. The snorkelling around Koh Tao was amazing!!!! :) Our villa host Obby was very helpful and all the staff were always smiling and attentive.
