Stayed in Ocean view villa for seven nights as grand finale to far east honeymoon tour. We had always wanted to experience a banyan tree resort and im pleased to say that the resort lived up expectations. From the moment you pass the entrance into the drive way you can tell you are in a top class resort. Our villa... More

This review is overdue, however, I felt that even though it has been a few months, I should say thank you for everyone who made our stay so enjoyable. If you are familiar with the Banyan brand, this hotel will not disappoint. We stayed in a Royal Banyan room almost at the top of the hilltop. The room had a... More

Having taken a while to decide upon a resort for our stay in Koh Samui, I can categorically state that we made the right choice as we were not disappointed with the Banyan Tree, in fact it is one of the best resorts in which we have stayed and I am quite mystified to read some negative comments on this...

Loved everything about the banyan tree. The villa was very private and the views are amazing to wake up to. Upon arrving, we didnt leave the resort for the first 2 days. I was most impressed with our villa host Obbey, she was amazing and very hands on. She took great care of us and no request was any trouble... More

Great place to relax, with each villa having its own private pool, jacuzzi and a villa host who you could call upon anytime! You could walk down to the beach equipped with sun loungers, four post curtained enclosure, with frequent waiter services. A great place for family to relax, snorkel, body board, kayak and wind surf, free for all the... More

We were in a girlfriends-getaway, so four of us booked the two room Sanctuary Villa for three nights. Few days before departure, Banyan Tree sent us a list requesting us to fill up preferred scent, type of pillows, additional requests (we asked for a yoga mat, linen bed sheets with Lavendar scent and under 'special occasion' - celebration of two...

We stayed in Banyan Tree in Koh Samui during our family summer holiday. It is an exceptional hotel from many point of views. The rooms were spacious,had great designs and were really practical except for the closet that was rather small for the size of the room. The private in villa pool was the best part. We would swim any... More

We spent 5 days at Banyan Tree Samui, after 5 days at Banyan Tree Phuket, and were a little worried that we may have been taking a step down in the luxury stakes, but we need not have been concerned. The Banyan Tree Samui Resort was beyond beautiful, and for this time of year, possibly better than Phuket, because the... More
