Fantastic dinner on the rooftop restaurant. Service was extremely attentive and genuine. Special mentions for Ming who looked after us extremely well the whole evening. Brilliant views of the whole city. Highly recommended if your looking for a special experience in Bangkok. Thank you Banyan Tree.

The Banyan Tree is slightly isolated, but we liked this aspect. The beach was one of the best we have swum at. The service / staff were every professional and very accommodating. I highly recommend this for a holiday to relax and enjoy. Do not go if you are not prepared to spend the money.

Supposed to be 5 Star what a Joke more like 3 Star hotel,Cold Buffet food and I heard another guest complain too and they gave me %20 discount. This hotel advertises high rates but in reality the room rates are in the region of €400 including breakfast but the hotel is tired it needs re-furbishment as many things dont work in the rooms

OK checked in all fine they offered us a welcome drink at the lounge and we went to eat something 45 mins later the glasses were still at the lounge table,I looked arounf and the lounge tables were all dirty. At night went o Safron restaurant which is part of the hotel it was an open buffet Thai dinner,everything was cold I complained to the waiter he came back and aplogised and said they gave me %20 discount,I was there for a meal not for a discount! The jacuzzi was boiling hot and I mean it luckily I tested the temprature if not one could have a severe burn specially if you have a child with you please always check the jacuzzi temprature, The bedroom door was not closing properly 3 guys came to fix it and they couldnt the door needed replacement. The wife failed 4 times and they came to the room 4 times to fix it. The hotel was %75 empty and the service was lousy the assistant manager said that the property was sold recently and its due for a major re-furbishment so my advise is stay away from the Banyan tree hotel Read less
