Banyan Tree Samui is located in a private cove in the South East of the island, overlooking Lamai Bay and combines traditional Thai influences with world class accommodation. Locally sourced materials and an emphasis on eco living make the resort an attractive prospect to travellers keen on preserving the natural beauty of their island destination. Luxurious without being ostentatious, villas are built on stilts to maintain the feel of the island’s traditional architecture, and also offer generously proportioned private swimming pools – invaluable for cooling off in Thailand’s balmy climate.
Those looking to make the most of Banyan Tree Samui’s private sea cove are well catered for. Snorkelling, catamaran sailing and kayaking all await you on the glittering blue waters that surround the island. The resort has mountain bikes available so that guests can explore Lamai, and the rest of Koh Samui is just a short taxi, car or motorcycle ride away. Those seeking peace and tranquillity will find it in the resort’s dedicated yoga room or Rainforest spa, where a comprehensive range of treatments are available. From Swedish and Asian massage to indulgent full day pampering programmes, you’re sure to find your zen here.
Dining at Banyan Tree Samui is always a pleasurable experience for all the senses. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast at The Edge, on a natural wooden deck overlooking the private cove; delicious fresh seafood at Sands, without even having to leave the beach; or perhaps a lighter bite or fruity cocktail at the pool bar.
The picturesque location lends itself well to romantic breaks, and Banyan Tree Samui is keen to indulge couples seeking an intimate escape. From the spa’s menu of sensuous massages to the Intimate Moments ambience package available for your room, this resort knows how to create a romantic atmosphere. Its signature restaurant, Saffron, is elegant and rich in atmosphere, with more exclusive dining options available in the form of in-room dining, barbecue on the deck of your villa, or even a candlelit meal for two on the private beach, complete with curtained pagoda.
