Banyan Tree Samui in Koh Samui, Thailand

Located south of Bangkok in the "Land of Smiles," the picturesque island of Koh Samui is home to some of the world's most beautiful beaches, temperate rainforests, and stunning shorelines. With the addition of Banyan Tree Samui, Koh Samui is now home to the "Best New Beach Resort Hotel" as named by the elite Condé Nast Traveller Hot List 2011. The resort's breathtaking exterior rises above the shimmering Gulf of Thailand amidst cascading treetop terraces on an isolated hill cove. Banyan Tree Samui boasts an all villa-resort; each generously proportioned living space impressively combines aspects of traditional Thai-style architecture with modern planning and design, such as the steep, raised rooftops, striking floor-to-ceiling windows, and its own elevated, private pool. The beautiful, expansive grounds are surrounded by the lush, aromatic foliage of the region, making it the picture perfect backdrop for every celebration of life: birthdays, weddings, romantic getaways, and everything in between.

Supreme facilities and resort amenities take Banyan Tree Samui to the highest peaks of luxury and elegance, while offering an unparalleled experience every member of the family can enjoy. Travel through The Rainforest, no, not the jade jungle surrounding the hotel, but the resort's hydrotherapy experience that combines the finest European spa treatments with "the essence of Asian wellness philosophy" to create a sanctuary of spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being. A daily Kid's Club offers age and size appropriate activities for children aged 4-12 years, including Thai dance classes, supervised outdoor activities, and arts & crafts. The entire resort is outfitted with wireless Internet, so whether you need to buckle down in a Boardroom or schedule dinner reservations, you are never too far from everything you need to get your work done in the safety and comfort of Banyan Tree Samui. Or, if you choose to unplug and leave work behind, take a relaxing turn in the yoga room. Perfect your sun salutation at dawn, or request a special session to meet your yoga needs with a certified instructor. Spend the day on Lamai Bay, the private, serene sand beach surrounding Banyan Tree Samui, and savor the surroundings of a true island paradise.

TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 1 day ago

Stayed for a week's beach break with the family (2x adults, 1x child) and this is our second stay at Banyan Tree Samui and it again lived up to our expectations. We wanted a relaxing holiday where we could chill, have nice food and just relax and we knew this would be the place to get it. We had an Ocean View Villa in the E range and whilst the resort was full you wouldn't have known it as you could relax in the villa or down on the beach. Rooms are very well maintained, given its a busy place they seem to look after the rooms and the upkeep - no complaints on the room, very comfortable. The pool and jacuzzi was great to dip into and cool off. We had a bottle of wine and admired the view from the private deck area most evenings and enjoyed breakfast in the villa each morning - why go all the way to the main restaurant when you can order in and enjoy the view! Food was generally very good and a wide selection of western and asian dishes, we generally had lunch and dinner at the Sands restaurant and the staff were super friendly and helpful despite being very busy. We had one meal at Saffron (Thai cuisine) and this was in my opinion pretty poor (same as our first visit)... didn't really enjoy the meal, despite loving Thai food. In villa BBQ night was superb, friendly staff set everything up and huge range of food - we deliberately ordered for 2 people and there was far too much. Overall excellent place and will happily come back again. Beach activities were hampered by errant jelly fish, but we did paddle boarding, kayaking, snorkelling, rock scrambling, and fishing off the rocks. Areas the resort could focus on: - There is a real lack of a central bar for relaxing in the evening. We like a pre-dinner drink and to play cards... had to do that at the Sands restaurant. There may be a bar, but it's miles away at reception and dont have the desire to schlep around the resort for a drink. - Portion sizes are on the large size and dread to think how much is wasted, plus how much it costs to run. We ordered sea bass one night and each plate came with three fillets, which whilst VERY tasty, it was too much. Same for the fish & chips... came with a massive side salad which no-one wanted.

Located on a very nice and private beach, the Banyan Tree is the perfect location for a few days stays. Restaurants are excellent, breakfast fantastic. Rooms are just a dream when sea view with private swimming pool. Gym : Yoga teacher excellent.

Stayed here for two nights and we didn't leave the hotel after checking in. The entire property looks the same as the pictures you are bound to find on the internet - high and low villas across the hill - some granting you unobstructed sea view while some facing some tall trees. We were in E02, lucky enough to be facing some partial sea view and the reception side, with a heated jacuzzi that I enjoyed so much at night. There are lots of unforgettable memories throughout our stay: on the first night while we were having Thai food at the Saffron, it was suddenly pouring outside, but we were then safely sent back to our villa by the buggy driver who perfectly covered the buggy to ensure that guests were waterproof. That night I spent like an hour watching the thunderstorms on the opposite side. Simply amazing. I was also extremely touched when I learned that a staff was standing outside our villa during the heavy rain just to send us an anniversary cake. As the villas are scattered across the hill, it feels so close to the nature. A lot of pretty trees are planted, including some fruit-bearing ones. At night you will probably see some lizards in your villa. The stars on the sky are also amazing. Tried some of the activities provided at the hotel - snorkelling, standup paddle, yoga class and Pilates class. They have an Indian in-house yoga master. The restaurants are good but not surprising. Had dinner at the Saffron (Thai) and the Sands (Italian). Both are up to standard. Breakfast at the Edge has a lot of variety but that's obviously not the best breakfast I had at a five star hotel/resort. Needless to say, service was excellent. Overall a luxury and relaxing stay. Thank you our host Kwan who went the extra mile to make it more memorable to us.

We had a superb holiday at the Banyan Tree in Koh Samui. You have your own villa host (we had Sai, who was fantastic) who can't do enough for you. The actual villa we had was just fabulous. Spacious, clean, comfortable -just wonderful. The resort caters to children too. The general pool area is amazing and the beach is great too. There are several water activities too. The only thing I would say is that this is a very expensive holiday. Prices are high for what you get. We had great massages but too expensive considering what they cost just outside of the resort. Drinks are expensive too. Breakfast was great. A very good variety and lots of fresh food and different choices each day. The staff were really very good and helpful. You get around the resort by golf buggy which the kids loved! Room service isn't a great option just because the resort is big and it takes time to get around. Really loved our stay. There are a couple of things which would make this a 5 star review - you should consider giving your water bottles in a little ice box so they stay cool. I would have adjustable sun beds by the pool. Offer more options around the pool in terms of food and drinks and I would have staff come to ask if people want things. Also have more options for happy hour at the pool to make the drinks a little more affordable. A fabulous place. Would definitely go back.

We arrived at the lobby in the pouring rain, but even that couldn't detract from the fabulous view that greets you. We were welcomed by name, which was a lovely touch, by our villa host, View. View explained the options we had with regards to bedding and oils in our room, whilst we drank a lovely refreshing welcome drink. Once the formalities were done, we were sitting in the golf buggy on the way to our ocean view villa. We were given the most amazing villa, B01. Each villa is split into 3 sections. Lounge, bedroom & bathroom. The lounge & bedroom had lovely views of the ocean looking across your private deck & infinity pool. The villa is close to 'the Edge' for breakfast & close to the beach, so we could stroll down everyday. The villa was perfect, not overlooked & got the sun all afternoon. The beach staff were very attentive, as soon as we arrived they placed towels on the loungers and delivered a tray with cold water, ice, cold towels & mentos. Lots of activities to do on & in the water. We tried paddle boarding, kayaking, canoeing & snorkelling. The staff also patrolled the waters making sure it was safe to swim. A couple of days, box jellyfish were detected early in the morning, but had moved on in the afternoon, so the beach was closed for swimming during this time. Which wasn't a problem for us, better to be safe than sorry. We ate at Saffron & Sands, both were amazing. I can highly recommend the mango & sticky rice at Saffron. Breakfasts were fabulous. We ate that much, we didn't feel the need to eat again until the evening. They catered to everyone. If you wanted noodles, soup or curry, you could get it, but you could also get pancakes, crepes, French toast or waffles all made to order along with eggs. Each day at the egg station they had a special to go along with The boiled, fried, scrambled, omelette or eggs Benedict, which tasted amazing. The fresh fruit was always full, and I preferred the days that fresh mango was on offer. We ventured out to the local night market one night, and contacted our villa host, who arranged transportation for us. It was lovely to know that if we had any questions, we could just contact View, and she would be able to organise or answer it. The Spa is fabulous. My husband & I had a couples massage which was so relaxing. We thoroughly enjoyed it! We had such a relaxing time, we honestly didn't want to leave. All I can say is, if your looking to book, just do it, you won't be disappointed!
