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.
