Grace & Character
Reviewed 1 day ago

The rave reviews say it all, but also comments on ageing. This is a resort that many others were modelled on. It has grace & character. The villas and gardens are to die for and the food, service and traditional Thai hospitality make this a very, very good place for a totally relaxed holiday. Yes, there is ageing, but it is ageing gracefully and there are extensive refurbishments (not intrusive for us, but we were some distance away) and the Laguna resort, in which BT is located, has dining options at neighbour hotels. The beach is massive and also clean. As is well published, the unregulated developments have been eliminated on all beaches, so a bit of "atmosphere" is lost, but then also the downside is not there either. Proximity to outside restaurants and nightlife is reasonable, with Patong Beach about 45 mins drive. All in all a wonderful experience and we are now spoilt. Nothing will be quite the same, unless we return!

Double pool villa.
Reviewed 2 days ago

Amazing. It was a good half hour drive into Phuket city. The resort was lovely and relaxing. After a swim in the pool i dropped a glass on my foot by accident. The hotel went out of its way and got me emergency staff to take a look at my foot. The whisked me away in the hotel private limousine to the nearest hospital without charging me anything. My foot was stitched up incredibly well. Next morning in the resort i was gifted a lovely bunch of flowers from the hotel team!!

We just got back from 10 days in Thailand and could not have picked a better hotel than The Banyan Tree! It is visually stunning, the staff can not do enough for you, the food is amazing, the facilities are excellent - best hotel in Laguna in my opinion

Book Their Double Pool Villas!
Reviewed 5 days ago

Banyan Tree is my go-to hotel every time I stay Phuket. I visit Phuket about 3-4 times a year and every time I go I always stay in Banyan Tree and I always request for the same double pool villa (Villa 915 is their best one!). I have tried other types of their villas before and my favourite is their double pool villas. They will assign you your personal butler, free bikes to ride around the resort and also free homemade ice cream delivered to your door every day!

If you happen to be staying there on a Sunday you cannot miss their Sunday brunch buffet which is definitely the best in Thailand!
