Beautiful Banyan Tree and beautiful Koh Samui

Review by Nagatron Melbourne, Australia

Absolutely loved our 5 night stay at Banyan Tree, Samui. This was our first post Covid overseas trip and the Thai travel requirements were seamlessly organised by the Thai authorities at the airport and on arrival at Banyan Tree resort by the staff there. We were accompanied to our villa for check in at ten o’clock at night and by the time breakfast was brought to us in the morning, we had received our negative tests and were free to go...

Our villa host, May, was sensational for our entire stay and nothing we asked her to help us with was too much trouble. Thank you May for helping make our stay so seamless. The villa was stunning. We had our own pool, bathroom, living room and bedroom. We were next door to our daughter, son in law and 7 month old grandson- next door being 50 metres away. Breakfasts were amazing but unfortunately was very under utilised as the resort was only about 30% full. However, everything you could possibly want was available. They even made fresh fruit and veggies for the baby on the spot which then fed him throughout the day. We ate in the others pool restaurant/bar and also at their signature restaurant which were both excellent. We did not get a chance to use the spa unfortunately but daughter and SIL used the gym- again they were the only ones there. Down the road about 500 metres easy walking are a few shops, laundry, chemist and restaurants. Unfortunately a lot of Koh Samui was still pretty much shut.
The only “downside” of this resort is it is extremely hilly but a quick call for a buggy and you are transported quickly wherever you need to get to. The hills are a bit tough on the knees for some of us! We would not hesitate to return. We certainly enjoyed it being very quiet but would love to see life return to the Thailand we all know and love.

Top tear in Samui.

Review by Todomopopo Seoul, South Korea

Visited for honeymoon.

It was a nature friendly resort. You may be disappointed if you want a modern and sophisticated feel, but you can see what the sophistication of coexisting with nature is through Banyan tree Samui.

The service is superb. The breakfast was great. One thing i'm sorry about is the quality of the beachside restaurant compared to the price range.

Truly heaven!

With the best staff you can ever asked for.

This Resort is honestly one of the best we have ever stayed at. It is truly beautiful. The location is really good 10 minutes’ drive to nearest location with good options for restaurants, however it has been built on hill so you cannot commute easily at the resort without buggy services.

We stayed in hillside villa and our villa had 60 stairs to reach to villa, and that was plus point for us since the view was immaculate! The resort is on the east side of island so we had very mesmerising sunrises...

Although it was peak season but we had 3 full rainy day and the other day was rain and sun.

The beauty of the resort is one part and the staff are something else, nothing was trouble for our amazing villa host Lucy! She was always a message away and while she was on her day off we had Dao, these two made our 10 days so hassle free and so organised, from booking kids club activity for our 7 years old, and pick him up, drop him off to shop from pharmacy! Every morning Lucy would see us at breakfast to make sure our day is planned as we like, and for two days that she was off Dao would make sure we do not feel that Lucy is not around. So thank you both so much, we cant wait to see you again.

Then the restaurant staff, Lookmee and Best at Sand were so friendly and attentive, also we should mention chef Jarus and chef Dam.

It was our anniversary and we have booked Villa BBQ and chef Jarus and Jed made it very special, they was coking but keep their distance for our privacy as well and show up whenever we needed them.

From the lobby staff “ Beauty” to buggy Ae and Tle they were always smiling and ready to make you stay epic and flawless.

The only thing that I will say I wish it was different was the size of closet which is not suitable for family long stay and as a result we never had tidy room!

Thank you Banyan tree Samui team, I hope I mentioned everyone cause every single one of you deserve the best reviews. we will for sure come back to see you soon.

Really a great discovery!

Was our first time, and we loved it! They managed very well the Covid entry process to make it so confortable as possible for us. The staff was overall absolutely lovely and very helpful, they are not just caring after you, they really love to be with you and carry about you and your holidays. Fantastic villa, beach, services, only the food (of course a bit expensive than outside of the hotel, but this is normal for such kind of hotels) is a little step under the level of the rest...

Even if very good, it should have more variety on the menu and be a bit more like "grande cuisine", a bit to conventional for such kind of hotel.... We will enjoy to come again.... Thanks to all!

Magnificent holiday, wonderful service.

Review by Maureen A Sydney, Australia

The is our sixth stay at the Banyan Tree Koh Samui and again the wonderful team and management have surpassed our exceptions.

We arrived with a warm and welcoming reception the checkin was seamless, cold towels and a refreshing beverage was served whilst we marvelled at the crystal blue waters of the resort beach and The Gulf of Siam.

I recommend the Royal Banyan Tree villa for the uninterrupted magnificent view of the azure ocean beneath, our villa towering above the resort offering total privacy.

The Banyan Tree team, our villa host Khun Lucy, The Edge, Sands, buggy drivers and the beach assistants were vital to the smooth running of this wonderful resort, my husband and I found that the delivery of service excellence was throughout our stay of three weeks at the Banyan tree with memorable moments to enjoy.

The Banyan Tree must be applauded for their customer focus, wherever my husband and I were within the resort we were addressed by our surname, always warmly greeted. I was lucky enough to enjoy my Birthday at the Banyan Tree, I had a wonderful chocolate ganache cake presented at breakfast and the Banyan Tree BD choir singing the tune to the start of a glorious day - thank you team lead by Khun Tai (little rabbit in English).

We dined at Sands enjoyed room service and indulged with afternoon high tea in our villa, during our stay all the meals were of the highest standard from delivery to presentation and taste.

Breakfast - the breakfast was a long affair with hot coffee sparkling wine if you desire and a myriad of cold drinks such a perrier for your table. The buffet showcased the wonderful fresh fruits of Thailand and freshly baked items made by the Banyan Tree chefs...

Hot dishes ranged from Chinese delicacies, Thai dishes to freshly made egg dishes of your choice.

Recommendations for the first time visitor to Koh Samui - my advice is to choose Banyan Tree Koh Samui for the unsurpassed luxury and attention to detail, the team at the Banyan Tree are warm, friendly and your stay will leave you with lasting memories of a holiday of a lifetime.

Thank you Banyan Tree for another wonderful holiday filled with lasting memories, friendly faces and old friends
