Third times for us to back here, although we had been Samui island 5th times in this few years. Why? Its a really simple question, because we are definitely addicted to everything of Banyan tree Samui. Just 15-20min from town centre by car, 15min from big super market (Big C and Tesco), but actually you are not willing to go... More

It may be cliché to say, but this was truly the most memorable honeymoon we could have ever imagined. The Banyan Tree went above and beyond all expectations to seamlessly anticipate and execute everyone of our requests and needs. The villa host service provided was an added touch of brilliance. Our villa host Obee could have been an executive assistant... More

3 nights at The Banyan Tree Samui is just not enough. We had the most amazing stay - stunning location with beautiful views over our private pool, across the gardens and to the sea. Just beautiful. However it was the ever attentive and discrete service of the team (Khun Geng in particular) that just made this trip really outstanding. Nothing... More

I stayed here for the last 2 nights of my honeymoon and it was better than expected. I knew this would be special and a bit of a treat but it went above expectations. The villas are simply stunning.

In this all villa resort we had a villa mid way up the pretty steeped sided valley (the resort is contained within a horseshoe shaped bay) with very easy access to the beach and swimming pool and beach restaurant. It's hard to capture the stunning nature of this resort in any sort of narrative but suffice to say a 5... More

I did a bit of trip advisor research and specifically requested either room G10 or G9 (for the Royal Banyan Pool villa category). We got room G9 and we were not disappointed - the views were incredibly and we had ultimate privacy with no-one being able to see into our room or pool area. The infinity pool in the room... More
