Banyan Tree Phuket Resort
2 unforgettable days at the luxurious Banyan Tree Phuket resort
Banyan Tree Phuket on Bangtao beach, is the largest resort on Phuket Island (36ha) and is also the most luxurious resort nestled in the Laguna Complex.
Open for more than two decades, Banyan Tree Phuket has been voted the “World’s Best SPA resort” by readers of Condé Nast Traveler and the “Best Resort Hotel in Asia” of the Asian Wall Street Journal and CNBC Asia.
The immense resort has at least 175 luxurious villas. You can choose among 8 different types of villas, all well-enclosed with own private swimming pool, surrounded by lush tropical vegetation and a beautifully well-kept garden for total and unique privacy. As of November 1, 45 new villas will be available, with a high level of luxury for a total of 220 luxurious villas!
With the 6 restaurants, overlooking the lagoon, with Asian and international cuisine, the resort offers a wide range of exceptional gastronomic options.
The best but certainly expensive is the romantic candlelit dinner on board the “Sanya Rak, the traditional and decorated long-tailed boat of Banyan Tree. You will enjoy, sailing in the middle of the lagoon, the traditional music and delicious food and you will also admire the beautiful sunsets of Phuket. You will love this experience and you will not forget it!
The large 18-hole golf course of Banyan Tree Phuket, located opposite the lobby, is Thailand’s best golf course and is also the best golf course in Asia. It is also possible to train in a golf academy with truly experienced instructors.
However it could be challenging but also fun!
The luxurious pool villa
The luxurious Grand Lagoon Pool Villa is large (270 sqm) completely private, surrounded by high walls with a 9 meter long pool and a lush and well-kept garden overlooking the salt water lagoon.
Like most Banyan Tree Phuket villas, they overlook the beautiful lagoon but not the sea! Moreover the villas has been designed with a high level of comfort and functionality.
The well designed room in Thai style, offers a large and soft bed, a comfortable sofa with a flat TV in front with many channels, and of course the WI-FI is very fast. It’s all well designed to make you feel truly at ease.
You can also see, from the bed, the beautiful and private swimming pool, and at any time you can jump in the water. Who wouldn’t do it!
The shower and toilet facilities are separate and located in the side area, but with the bathtub located outside. On the other hand it is nice to be in the bathtub under the sunlight in total privacy!
Facilities include a hairdryer, bathrobes and slipper, safe deposit box, pool towels, Vape diffuser for plates, Banyan Tree rain umbrellas, minibar, coffee machine and various bottles of water and many other services you can expect from a luxurious hotel.
With a 24-hour service on 24 the buggy is always at your disposal, just call it and in less than no time you will find it in front of your villa.
If you do not feel like going out but you prefer to stay in the room, dinner at the villa is more than just room service. So do not hesitate!
If you are full of energy and are curious to explore Phuket’s largest resort, do as I do, take a bicycle and visit the resort in complete tranquility. But don’t think of going by walking, the resort is very large and it would take hours to visit it all over.
Banyan Tree Phuket is located a few steps of the beautiful Bangtao beach. Furthermore, the area is relatively quiet, perfect for those who want to relax. Near the beach, there are some small seafood restaurants with traditional Thai cuisine at really affordable prices.
A small area on the beach is managed by the resort and guests can enjoy it using the green mattresses and towels provided by the management. So, go to the beach without worries and relax under the shade of tall pines.
