We had an excellent stay at Banyan Tree Samui. Our Villa Host, Dada, helped me plan a beautiful proposal on the beach with a Thai fire show followed by a stunning Destination dining experience. Dada and the Banyan team made sure every aspect of the proposal was perfect and made last minute adjustments when it started raining minutes before the proposal. My fiancé was stunned by every aspect of the night. Thank you Dada and Banyan Samui for a wonderful experience!

Hotel's Favorite
We had the pleasure of spending the second week of our honeymoon at the Banyan Tree in Samui. The pool villas are outstanding and far bigger than you can imagine from pictures on the website. We stayed in a full ocean view villa from where we could see a big chunk of the resort, the beach and out to sea. There is a large terrace and large pool as well as an outdoor dining area and sunbathing platform. Inside, there is a lounge area with TV, minibar/fridge and drinks making facilities, then you slide doors through to the bedroom with a huge super king size bed fit for royalty! Then you slide through more doors to the bathroom with huge bath, separate toilet, walk in wardrobe area and a separate shower area with rainfall shower. You can access the outside terrace and pool from the lounge, bedroom and shower. While the bedroom is showing a few signs of age in the furniture and not especially great plug/USB situation (as well as very confusing lighting!), the overall size and finish of the villa is outstanding. I also liked the fact you could press a switch in the villa for "do not disturb" or "make my room up". The housekeepers were super friendly and their turn down service (along with gift and sweet treat) as well as their overall cleaning standard was amazing. The grounds themselves are like being in a tropical rainforest...the flowers and wildlife and birds are wonderful, and we had fun spotting the birds, geckos and millipedes both outside our villa as well as on a tour round the grounds with Phan, the recreation manager who gave us a fascinating insight into the environment and wildlife and trees around the villas and hotel. The private beach is also stunning, lovely soft sand, and intriguing at night to see the green lights from the fishing boats as they fish for calamari. The experiences are highly recommended...we had a celebratory dinner at Sands...it was meant to be on the beach, but a thunderstorm had other plans for us, but having a private area of the restaurant to ourselves along with all the same set up and beautiful flowers and watching the wind and rain was just as spectacular, and the service from Sara and Lookmee was so personal and friendly, and they took so many lovely photos for us too. The food itself was incredible, we didn't realise there would be so many courses! The most special part was the main, I had the fillet steak and lobster and my wife had fillet steak with lamb. All elements were cooked to perfection as requested, and while not cheap, I can certainly state it was worth every penny for such a magical evening. We also had a couple of massages and facials each at the spa which is totally world class. The whole experience here was memorable, not least the fact we had our treatments together as a couple in a private villa setting both times. We left feeling invigorated as well as relaxed. The only slight blip in the whole experience was the fact that it was not always clear who was in charge in each section of the hotel, and this was then reflected in the fact that management was reactive to issues rather than avoiding them in the first place. I must admit that the resolutions were always first class and exceeded expectations, but rather than get something for free by way of an apology, at this level, you expect the issues to not be happening in the first place! This can no doubt be rectified with better communication between departments across the hotel. The villa host concept is nice too, albeit the "Line" app isn't as effective as "WhatsApp" and we felt that we got quicker responses and more attentive service from our host in other Banyan Tree properties, but this is just us being pedantic! The dining options are excellent, with Sands offering a nicer, more informal option by the beach. Saffron is their superb fine dining Thai restaurant - the golf buggy ride to here is especially entertaining as it is VERY steep. And The Edge offers amazing views for breakfast, which was great quality every morning, not least the freshly cooked eggs and pancakes. Room service was also very good and pretty swift to be served. There is also a nice shop on site selling Banyan Tree spa items and other gifts such as robes and towels. The hotel is also in a great location on its own headland, but just a short taxi ride to both Lamai and Chaweng. Overall, we had the most wonderful week here and it is part of our honeymoon that we shall never forget at the beautiful Banyan Tree in Koh Samui :-) This is a world class 5* resort.

Everything had been perfect. Top notch service, well trained staff and a relaxing environment where you can recharge. Unlike other hotel chains there's no hard selling of anything else except for what you have requested for. We will definitely return again!

We had our best vacation ever in the Banyan tree Samui resort. We stayed in the partial ocean view villa which was amazing. The villa has its own private pool that is quite big for a villa private pull. The villa is perfectly designed and furnished and it has everything you can think of. It is situated in a way that you have complete privacy from the rest of the resort. The ocean view that can be seen from every spot in the villa is amazing The resort staff offers a very warm welcome and service. They all did the utmost to take care of everything we needed and asked for. We had a villa host (Anna) that gave us special attention and took care of all the reservations we did in the hotel activity. The staff in the Banyan tree is far more than you can expect even for Thailand. The hotel has a private beach so it is never to crowded and the beach staff offers full service that includes complimentary ice water, towels, snorkling equipment, kayaking and sailing. Our reservation included breakfast. It was very satisfying and included both Thai dishes and western. The restaurant is located near the lobby on a hill top so you can enjoy an amazing view of the ocean while having breakfast. The resorts SPA offers all kind of treatments. The price is not cheap relatively to Thailand but you receive a very good treatment and experience. In our stay the offered a promotion that combined activities and lowered the price of each. In addition to Thai massage we also did the rainforest experience that I recommend. It was not our first-time in Thailand and we also enjoyed it 5 years ago. But this time we were looking for a complete relaxation and we definitely received it. It was the best vacation ever and we can't wait to come back. Thank you!

After much research I decided to book a villa as a gift for my partners 30th birthday. I am genuinely struggling to find a fault with this resort. The quality of service could not have been better, the staff have everything worked out and have thought of everything - our airline unfortunately lost our luggage and the staff at the resort provided spare clothes for us and chased down our luggage from the airline. The options at this resort are endless, from specialized dining experiences, to day spas & activities, and the staff are always happy to accommodate and go well out of their way to make the guests stay memorable. The resort itself is exceptional, the views are amazing and the grounds are beautiful - everyday you can see staff maintaining the gardens, roads & buildings. The villas are generous in size, the a/c is perfect and the private infinity pool is spot on. You really do get what you pay for and even though this resort isn’t the cheapest around, it definitely feels like great value. This resort should definitely be more than 5 stars.

This is a phenomenal property, it is located in a stunning bay, it’s well maintained and the staff is friendly and always willing to help and enhance your stay. We stayed at a beach view villa and the view fantastic, you could hear the waves from the room and the only sounds we heard were coming from nature. The hotel is quiet making it ideal for a wellness retreats.

Absolutely great 5* resort! Unbelievable beautiful, spacious, clean villas on a hillside. We had a partial seaview villa and were upgraded to a oceanview villa during our stay (urgent building on a villa close to us was necessary so we got moved to avoid upcoming noise). Both had an absolutely stunning terrace with pool, jacuzzi (heatable) lounge and view! Our villa host Anna was always super nice and helpful and helped organize what we wanted to do! The restaurants are beautiful with good food. Very kind and heartly service, especially Pla!!! The only sligthly negative thing to say was that the oganization in the restaurant could be improved, since orders got mixed or lost several times. Fixed responsible waiters for the sun chairs and sun chair number or and or an ordering app might improve this. All in all an absolutely amazing honeymoon! We will be back for sure! Thanks Ann&David
