Before arriving at Banyan Tree Samui, my husband and I had been traveling for a week at Hong Kong. Hong Kong is a place for total excitement. When we arrived at Koh Samui, we just wanted to unwind and relax. Banyan Tree Samui was the perfect place for doing that. When we first stepped into the resort, we were so impressed by the breathtaking sea view and it was beautiful. The resort had a simple contemporary Thai design which blended naturally with its environment.
We had a Deluxe Pool Villa without an ocean view. We didn't mind at all since we could see the ocean from almost everywhere in the resort. Our villa had a beautiful garden view with great privacy. At night, we could see lights shining through from other villas on the mountain slope. It was an oasis of serenity. Later, we also found out our villa was perfectly located. Banyan Tree Samui is huge and everyone needs buggy service to travel around the resort. During busy times, it could take up to 15 minutes for a buggy to arrive at our room. Luckily, our villa was so conveniently located. We could walk to the beach and most of the restaurants. So we didn't require buggy service all the time which was a good thing.
We stayed at the resort most of the time. We tried all the restaurants. All restaurants served good quality food especially Saffron, which we highly recommend. The beach was clean with crystal clear water. We could see fishes swimming right at our feet...so much fun. We had also tried the Rainforest at Banyan Tree Spa. It was an unique experience worth to try.
This was the second time we had stayed at one of the Banyan Tree resorts. Both experiences were unique and great. We were never be disappointed.
