"A sanctuary for the senses". In fact, all or almost all is included in the slogan of this very high standard hotel, surely, one of the most luxurious hotels in Phuket. The Banyan Tree - with tall trees at the entrance, which gave it its name - sets its singularity from the entrance into the very spacious and beautiful lobby, maintained in total soberness, in an extremely refined setting of water, stone and wood. Serenity, calm, a feel of zen, in summary, this absence of ostentation provides true luxury. Built on several acres, the hotel is in fact a set of villas with tropical private gardens, some with their own pool, distributed on the perimeter of a small lagoon. Indeed, there are no high constructions, and there is lots of vegetation all over. Amongst the communal amenities to point out: a beautiful pool, a sophisticated spa and a rare attraction, an 18 hole golf course.
