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... More

There are many people who like fishing in Korea. There are many programs and experiences. It may be possible in Banyan Tree, but I would like to have a program where people can fish in Banyan Tree Beach, put a fish in it, and fish in it.

I stayed here over the Christmas break. The weather was bit hit and miss but over all the hotel was excellent, service, food etc was great and with a private beach our stay was relaxing. It is also near national parks. I would recommend this to anyone who needs a good relaxing holiday.

Banyan Tree is a renowned brand and I always want to give it a try. The view of our deluxe pool villa was good as it came with a partial sea view. The patio was nice, the pool was clean, the room was tidied up twice a day. Amy, the villa host, was helpful and gave a birthday surprise for... More

It was our honeymoon and we stayed there for 5 nights. We booked the ocean view 1 bedroom villa and it was absolutely marvelous. Everything was perfect; the hospitality, comfort, food (whether breakfast, in room dining or fine dining), spa and beach experience. It may be above your budget but it's worth every penny and don't even think twice if... More

Stayed here for almost a week. Nice resort with lovely staff and generally good service. However found it lacked soul and nothing special. If anything we were a bit bored and found getting around the resort a chore - built on steep hillsides and you need to call someone with a buggy to take you anywhere. Also family rooms are... More
