Banyan Tree Samui is an extraordinary place, thanks to some of the largest on Koh Samui private infinity pools, spacious Thai design villas with beautiful sea views, and spa with hydrologic features that include a “tropical rain” pathway.
Set amongst lush tropical greenery, the seventy-eight pool villas of Banyan Tree Samui are spread on cascading terraces surrounding a picturesque bay.
In a hallmark Banyan Tree style, the villas’ style is a fusion of the traditional Thai architecture and contemporary expanses of glass, water, and opalescent ceramic tiles.
Spaces flow comfortably from the bedroom(s) out to the swimming pool in front and Jacuzzi, and further to the open pavilion. The villas vary from a generous 130 square meters (Garden Pool Villa) up to a whopping 316 meters of the Sanctuary Pool Villa.
“The Rainforest” in the Spa
Spa aficionados are familiar with the award-winning Banyan Tree brand, its holistic approach to wellness and the all-encompassing treatment experience.
Spa at Banyan Tree Samui continues this tradition—and makes a great impression with The Rainforest: the unique, island’s first, wellness and hydrotherapy center, of which we particularly loved the wooden bucket with icy water, and the tropical drizzle walk.
The Saffron and The Edge
The choice of cuisine starts with the signature Thai Saffron restaurant and extends to The Edge, a place with a stunning view over the entire bay and the hill. Then The Sands, on the beach is a great hangout offering grill and fresh seafood.
Many guests will often dine in the privacy of their villas and the hotel can also organize a special, romantic dinner on the beach.
Banyan Tree Samui is located on the south-east coast of Koh Samui, just 19 km from Samui International Airport. The hotel is close to the popular Lamai Beach, which is worth a visit for light shopping or just a stroll—though keep in mind it’s a bit touristy there.
