A disappointment

Gusts should check the air conditioning. It seems cold during the day, but at night you will probably need to use the fan as you are likely to feel too warm as the air conditioning system is no longer efficient. Unless you want to pay 150 rupees for a bottle of water in the restaurant, ask to be served the hotel's water which is pure and FREE.

Everything about Banyan Tree was perfect--the view, the pools straight out of a fairy tale, the rooms, the service, the plantation-like main house. The cocktails were delicious, made only with real fruit and alcohol, not sugared up. The Thai restaurant Saffron was hidden in a marsh, a location I had never experienced before, and was perfect from beginning to end. The food was incredibly flavorful and the service was perfect. Our one recommendation for improvement was the main restaurant's buffet nights, which were not that good, cost $100 a person, and did not allow you to just order from the menu. After one mistaken night of that, we just ate elsewhere, so it was fine--we would absolutely come back in a heartbeat!!!!

Beautiful location but on the slide

Extended Easter Break. Location & accommodation fantastic but disappointed by service & food for 5 star. Did not leave water in room & replace tonic despite asked 3 times. No more beach towels by lunch time despite being half full. No coconut drink 2 days running which was on the drinks menu despite the island full of coconuts ! Concierge staff were just like things were an effort, Food so so for a 5 star resort. Really needs a refresh so overall disappointing.

Just honeymooned there and couldn't have asked for a better experience! Everything was amazing! Villas are great, restaurants phenomenal, and amenities spectacular. Only annoyance was the number of wanna-be models doing photo shoots at the pool.

Amazing for honeymooners

Me and my husband absolutely loved our stay at the banyan tree. The grounds are beautiful and very secluded just what we were looking for. The staff were very personable and very helpful. Our personal favourite was Victor :) We really appreciate all staff that tried to make our stay a pleasant one! We didn’t want to leave!
