There are a few things that would have made me give them 5 stars instead of 4 -When we checked in i found hair on our bed covers and asked for...

A definite must for Honeymooners! The properties exquisite and dreamy. Your staff is very gracious but if you are expecting your personal concierge to be on it, they are not. Although very kind and gracious, they forget a lot, dinner reservations you have requested and mixing you up with other guests requests.Just a little frustrating but not a big deal....

It's probably a bit like enjoying a billionaire experience without having to buy your own island. It's accessible in all ways and everything is a cut above. Architecture, space planning, fittings, accessories. The staff all seem to have a PHD in delightful and competent Thai service. Food is great. And what a location - about the only improvement would be...

We just came back from 10 days in the Banyan Tree, having stayed there with our 2 year old. In almost all aspects, this stay was perfect, and we had one of the best vacations ever. Since general praise is not always helpful, I will break it down. Firstly, all elements of airport pick up and check in went smoothly....

Very enjoyable, with extremely comfortable bedding. Excellent breakfast set-up and choice. Staff well trained with prompt buggy service, which is difficult in a busy resort such as this. Strong WIFI in room, which is important from a business travel point of view

From the moment we arrived until we left Patrick our in villa butler was amazing. He was always one step ahead in helping us plan for day trips and meals on site or in room. All the villas at this property are similar to each other. The only difference is the view from each of the different units. The breakfasts...

Top notch hotel! The staff, especially View, were top of the line. The customer service was incredible. You felt like they really cared about you. They would remember where you stayed, how you liked your coffee at breakfast. The suites themself, amazing. The walk out private pool, lounge area.... incredible showers. Every part of this hotel was thought about to...

I have been to a quite a few resorts in Asia and seldom do I revisit the same resort. But for Banyan Tree (BT) Samui...I have been there for three times ( somehow the mgmt can't find the record of my very first stay).

Pros: The villas are insane. The views, the pool & hot tub, and the general lay-out make them maybe the best villas I've ever stayed in. The property is beautiful - great views from all over the resort, a very nice beach and common pool area. BT's general facilities are very good - a nice gym and spa area, for...
