Banyan Tree Phuket Resort

2 superb days at the luxurious Banyan Tree Phuket resort

Banyan Tree Phuket on Layan beach is the largest resort on Phuket Island (36ha) and is also the most 5-star luxurious resort nestled in the Laguna Complex.
It is also an award-winning resort and it is at the top in Thailand and also in all of Asia.

Banyan Tree Phuket is a hotel awarded by Thailand’s Safety & Health Administration SHA Plus+ certification from the Tourism Authority of Thailand.

Open for more than two decades, this luxurious 5-star resort has at least 175 luxurious villas. So, you can choose for your stay among 8 different types of villas. All villas are seriously well-enclosed with a high wall, offering private swimming pool, and a beautifully well-kept garden for a total privacy.

As of November 1, 45 new villas will be available, with a high level of luxury for a total of 220 luxurious villas.
The resort does have 6 chic restaurants and 2 bars. You can enjoy every single day without living the resort.

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. So, you will enjoy, the romantic dinner, sailing in the middle of the lagoon. You, for sure, will love this experience and you will not forget it!

The large 18-hole championship golf course of Banyan Tree Phuket is located opposite the lobby. It is Thailand’s best golf course and is also the best golf course in Asia. This is why golfers love to play in this golf course. It is also possible to train in a golf academy with truly experienced instructors. Moreover, it could be challenging but also fun!

The 2 main pools are located just behind the large lobby. So, it is easy to find them! The 40 meter long pool is perfect for those who love freestyle swimming or for an intense exercise. While a free-form pool comes with water rapids and jet cannons, great for having fun! A poolside bar is at your disposal for any refreshed drinks. So, do not hesitate.

The luxurious pool villa

The luxurious Grand Lagoon Pool Villa is large (270 sqm) completely private. It is surrounded by high walls with a 9 meter long pool and a lush and well-kept garden overlooking the lagoon. So don’t worry because nobody can see you!

Like most Banyan Tree Phuket villas, they overlook the beautiful lagoon but not the sea! Moreover, the villa was designed with a high level of comfort, and functionality.

The shower and toilet facilities are separate and located in the side area. The bathtub is located outside but always remaining in a total privacy. On the other hand, it is nice to be in the bathtub under the sunlight or under the rain.

Facilities include a hairdryer, bathrobes and slipper, safe deposit box, and pool towels. There are also Vape machine for mosquitoes, rain umbrellas, minibar and coffee machine. There are many other services you can expect from a luxurious hotel though. The sockets are not so many, but they are enough for your daily use!

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. You should try it!

During our stay, I had the chance to explore the largest resort. But how? Take a bicycle and visit the resort in complete tranquility, it is very nice but don’t think of going by walking. The resort is very large, and it would take hours to visit it all over.

The location

Banyan Tree Phuket is located a few steps of the beautiful Bangtao beach. Furthermore, that beach area is relatively quiet, but perfect for those who want to relax. On a side of the beach, there are some small seafood restaurants with sea view. They serve Thai cuisine at really affordable prices. So, don not miss them!

A small area on the beach is managed by the resort staff. In fact, 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.
