Banyan Tree Samui

Koh Samui, Thailand

The hotel

As you’d expect given its spectacular hilltop location, the surroundings are quite literally incredible. Overlooking Lamai Bay, this exquisite hotel occupies a stretch of totally unspoilt coastline, and each of of its 88 luxurious villas also comes with its own plunge pool, so you’ll have the whole thing all to yourself. Soak up some rays as you relax by the outdoor swimming pool or kick back with a hand-crafted cocktail at the pool bar and simply watch the world go by. Much more than just your typical island retreat, Banyan Tree Samui is the very definition of luxury. In fact, the whole place is so perfect it’s hard to believe you’re not dreaming.

I just returned home from a special weekend at the Banyan Tree Samui, in Koh Samui Thailand, in which I proposed to my girlfriend. I booked an ocean view villa, and also booked the destination dining on the beach and the intimate moment bath. For the entire time, my fiancee and I were treated like royalty! First, these villas are spectacular, both inside and out. We used our private pool often (very hot there), and sitting in the pool enjoying the night views was truly an amazing experience. Our Villa host, Dao, always checked up on us at breakfast, making sure we had everything we needed. The private beach area on this property is gorgeous and very peaceful. Our destination dinning was set up on the private beach. They essentially, place several lanterns along the sand creating a pathway with rose pedals for us to walk to our table beneath a canopy. The table was beautifully staged and our server Min, really went out of her way to make sure our special dinner went perfect! Finally, I also arranged to surprise my fiancee with the intimate bath. The time and effort involved in setting that up, and the other little romantic touches in our room were very much appreciated by us, and made our final evening there a night to remember. The Banyan Tree Samui is the perfect place for an island escape, and especially one if you are looking for a very romantic weekend/week. Thanks to all the great staff at Banyan Tree Samui! Read less

We stay 7 nights at Banyan Tree Samui. Our stay was perfect from the beginning at the end. Everything is made not only to respond to all request of the customer but to prevent them. The surroundings are so nice and the villa so well integrated in the nature. At arrival the check in is easy and comfortable. A private butler is dedicated to your needs and a mobile is given you can use all over the island if you need to, The villa are beautiful, well furnished, beautiful view, nice pool. All the staff is so helpful dedicated to réponse to whatever are your needs, The food is so good, beach service terrific and even the shop is great. Just a little negative point the prices of the restaurant and the spa are to high, 25% to high, so the restaurants are empty and they have to make dayly promotions. Even if the clients are wealthy they don’t like to be taken for..,, We look forward to return very quickly and loved it Read less

We stayed at Banyan Tree for our Wedding Anniversary and was amazed at the resort facilities and service. Aiiw was our Villa host and was blown away by her attention to detail. Aiiw was always on top of any requests and was ahead of our anticipated needs. This is resort was so romantic that it made us fall in love again. Our romantic dinner on the beach was out of this world. I felt like I was in an episode of the Bachelor. Lol. We was our private waiter for our dinner and was there to attend to every detail even down to the music we like to listed to. It was very special. Overall experience was the best of our entire trip to Thailand. The only drawback was that the beach did have some rocks when you first went in the water. But they even provided water shoes for you. They really did think of everything! Thank you once again for an amazing experience. We hope to be back int he future. Thank you Aiiw, you are the best! Read less
