Stayed here as a couple (in 30s) first couple of weeks in April. From the moment we arrived, we fell in love. Our check in was smooth, we were greeted with cold towels and a refreshing drink. We were introduced to Pang, our concierge for our stay and shown to our Villa. We were taken by golf buggy and shown...

We really enjoyed our week relaxing at the Banyan Tree Koh Samui. The property was built in 2010 so it is still in good condition. The beach is very private as only the guests from the resort can really access it. The service was very good esp the help the staff gave when my son was ill during our stay....

My wife and I had the most perfect wedding day at the Banyan Tree. The wedding package was amazing and it was organised brilliantly. Our wedding planner 'Gift' was so good from the start and she was very quick to respond to all our questions and worries over the 2 years of planning. Throughout the 3 days we stayed here...

In a beautiful - picture postcard area of Koh Samui. Nice beach. Beautiful rooms with great views. We stayed in a family pool villa. The pool was a good size as was the master room. Outside there is no sun loungers but a leather cushioned area, however due to the area being surrounded by a glass barrier the area was...

It's the first resort place I have been in my life and I think I went to one of the best. I picked the most basic room but it's like a big suite room in the city. Every room has a pool. My friends stay in a higher grade room so they have the harbor view as well. It was...

Unfortunately, our holiday was marred by 5 days of torrential rain, the tail end of Cyclone Debbie. This is the true test for a hotel. How do they cope with fractious guests and house bound kids? In this case they came through with flying colours. The staff here are superb. Despite the inclement weather the staff always managed to greet...

We got unlucky with freak thunderstorms, but this review is about the hotel rather than our holiday itself - so Banyan Tree gets a full five stars.
