Banyan Tree Phuket, Phuket, Thailand
Long a regular fixture on ‘best hotels’ lists, and with its elegant Thai pavilions rising above flower-filled gardens, the spectacular Banyan Tree is without doubt one of Phuket’s very best addresses.
With its elegant Thai pavilions rising above flower-filled gardens, this resort is both stunning and outstandingly welcoming.
Effortlessly chic villas (including the beautiful brand-new Serenity Pool Villas and three-bedroom Serenity Pool Residences) filled with Thai furnishings and oriental silks are the order of the day here, and it goes without saying that the award-winning spa is one of the best to be found anywhere in the world. And with the hotel bordering sandy white beaches and a freshwater lagoon, the possibilities for soaking up the sun or indulging in a host of watersports are endless.
There’s also a superb golf course on hand, plus three tennis courts and a friendly weekly tournament.
Then after dark, there’s a mind-boggling selection of gourmet eateries to frequent, including some very special private dining venues, perfect for just two.
