Hotel Overview

“The grandiose villas at Banyan Tree are the type of residences that you check into and deliberately don’t leave. The resort, which spreads across 30-plus acres of tropical hillside, is well prepared for reclusive guests: each imposingly grand villa boasts its own infinity pool, private terrace, and outdoor lounging areas (it’s worth investing in one that offers mesmerizing views across the Gulf of Thailand, too). Hail a golf buggy to venture out of your personal slice of paradise, whizzing down vertiginous pathways to the hotel’s private bay. Beach-side sun loungers and hammocks strung from coconut palms offer views across the cerulean waters; snorkeling kit, stand-up paddleboards and catamarans encourage you to venture in. Be sure to check out the hydrotherapy spa, yoga centre and signature Thai restaurant Saffron.”

See What They Say

“Why do people love staying in your hotel?
Banyan Tree Samui provides a Sanctuary for the Senses which combines the best elements of a tropical getaway with a private beach, blissful spa escapes, bespoke dining experiences, locally-infused elements and an unparalleled view of the Gulf of Thailand.
Guests can retreat from the dizzying pace of modernity into a secluded hideaway where the hours melt into each other gently and tranquility is within reach at all times.

What is there to do in the area?
While many guests choose to simply unwind in the comfort of their pool villa or explore the house reef of our private bay with our complimentary marine activies, there is a range of options within close proximity of the resort. Our Excursion Companion Programme provides guided tours of natural or cultural attractions, and our Guest Experience Agent consults with the guests to create an itinerary that matches perfectly with their interests.

What kind of breakfast do you offer?
The breakfast buffet at The Edge features a variety of Western and Asian dishes which are changed on a daily basis. Our culinary team would be delighted to cater to our guests’ preferences and provided off-menu options as requested. Guests can opt to delight their sweet tooth with a scoop or two from our ice cream bar or to raise a glass of champagne and toast to utter relaxation!

Do you offer other meals? And can you recommend good places to eat out locally?
We offer a range of diverse culinary experiences to suit all tastes. Guests can savour a variety of culinary options paired with an unforgettable vista at The Edge, experience a culinary journey through Thai cuisine at Saffron, or delight in fresh seafood and prime cuts of meat in an intimate beachfront setting at Sands. Not to be missed is Banyan Tree’s highly-acclaimed Destination Dining, offering a unique experience which blends romance and intimacy with local flavours.
There are endless options for dining on Samui whether it be fine-dining venues or street food at the night market. Our Villa Hosts are on hand to guide our guests to the location that matches their desires.

Which are your most popular room types, and why?
Our Royal Banyan Ocean Pool Villas are most popular as they provide a private space nestled within the lush jungle of our hillside, stunning scenic views of our private bay stretching out to the Gulf of Thailand and additional relaxation area in the villa including an outdoor pavilion with a sofa and a heated jet pool. The spacious infinity pool tops it off and delivers an unmatched setting for guests to relax and rejuvenate.

What facilities do you have for children and can you fit extra beds in your rooms ?
Our Kids’ Club welcomes children ages 4-12 for a variety of fun and educational activities on offer including a Junior Chef Culinary Course, Traditional Thai Dancing, Coconut Leaf Weaving, Yoga for Kids and much more! Babysitting services are available from our certified caretakers.
Our Family Ocean Pool Villa and Family Deluxe Pool Villa are well-suited for families – both feature a second bedroom offset from the main villa which features two twin beds. The sofa in the living room of our pool villas can be set as bed for young children or guests can opt for a roll-away bed. Complimentary baby cots and a selection of baby amenities can be provided for our little guests. All the elements for a memorable family holiday are readily available and our Villa Hosts would be delighted to catered to individual needs.
