It is the second time of Banyan Tree Samui. I like a view of the sea from the room of the pool, it was very relaxed. Breakfast menu is extensive, I did not get tired of stay. The staff is friendly and helpful. So I will go back to the Banyan Tree Samui.

We have spent 12 nights in this stunning property. It is our second time to Koh Samui and the Banyan tree surpassed our expectations in every way and did not disappoint. The location is simply beautiful. We were fortunate to have a villa high up so views were breathtaking. I have never visited a hotel before where every member of... More

Our family of 5 (2 adults and kids aged 10, 13 & 14) recently spent 8 nights at the beautiful Banyan Tree Samui resort. We stayed in the most spectacular family ocean view pool villa. The location and service at this resort is unparalleled. It is undeniably expensive but you are certainly getting a level of exclusivity that is difficult... More

We spent a week of our honeymoon at Banyan Tree Samui and were very pleased. The beach is amazing and the facilities are exceptional. One noteworthy item is the expense price of food and drinks. The quality did not always match the price.

Just went on a trip to Samui and this is easiest one of the best resort I've ever been to. The beach is of course brilliant. In-villa dining is also reasonably good, especially for the thai food - you won't need to leave the villa for better pad thai or mango sticky rice... you might wanna explore other parts of... More

We stayed in the family pool villa with three younger children which worked out very well. The villa was absolutely beautiful and had a fantastic view. The excellent service and nice atmosphere made it a stress free place to relax with the whole family.

Stayed here for a couple of nights 2-3 weeks ago. Was blown away by the standards at the hotel and the superior service. I had a great view of the sea and the weather didnt disappoint despite it being rainy season. I went here to chill out for 2 nights, but its probably better suited for honeymooning couples.
