Located on a private beach, built on stilts on a hill, the resort was very pretty. Staff were hospitable and the attention to details was remarkable! Better to go during non monsoon seasons, but we had an enjoyable time nevertheless. Our villa was one of the highest, and able to over see the town and caught the horizon at a...

I think it's the best for honeymoon couples and not for group of friends everything is too far including distance from villa to lobby and restaurant and sometimes it takes time to get buggy. Though rooms are very good next to perfect. We decided to check out 3 days early as as it was too isolated place for us.

We spent five nights at Banyan Tree Samui last week and had a wonderful time enjoying the seclusion of the resort. The place is meant for pure relaxation--disconnecting from the outside world and reconnecting with your partner--and the attentive staff were there to help make that possible in any way. My husband and I visited as part of our honeymoon...

“There are Villa's with Jacuzzi's in the pool and there are who don't, ask for one:) Also at first we changed Villas because there was no sun on the pool (the opposite direction of the sun) so the water was always cold.”
