The Banyan Tree Samui is one of Thailand’s best resorts, offering high-class services and luxury in gorgeous pool villas from Koh Samui, just 30 minutes away from Samui International. It’s the perfect spot spend a dream vacation and enjoy Thailand’s traditional and most common piece of furniture – the triangle pillow.
Though it may seem strange to see a pillow on the ground to a new-come tourist, the Thais are looking at it as its normal purpose. Everyone is welcome to do what they want with it, be it lounging, sleeping or leaning on with a cup of coffee in hand.
Going out of talks about traditions, we find that Banyan Tree Koh Samui is set on a rocky beach, surrounded by 78 villas that belong to the resort complex. Each of the villas has its own private pool or tourists can dip into the large common pool of the resort. Plus, the villas are fitted with sliding glass-doors that open towards the pool and the patio.
The area owns a record, for the region’s largest Hydrotherapy Spa. This is comprised within the Banyan Tree Spa Samui Rainforest, probably the best attraction in the area. There’s also the possibility to take part at Yoga lessons and stretching in the Yoga Room, or to grab a book and hide inside the Library.
The culinary experiences enjoyable here can vary, from traditional to world-renowned dishes. The Lobby and Pool Bars offer cold drinks, The Edge is an international-food restaurant, while Thai at Saffron greets you with authentic dining experiences. Furthermore, kids have their own club, as the adults do, so you wouldn’t have to worry about them and get to spend some private time with your beloved one.
Rainforest, palms, silence, the sea and fresh air are the great attributes that describe this gorgeous location. We dearly invite you to spend a few nights here, starting at $650/night.
