WE HAVE JUST BEEN TO KOH SAMUI, Banyan Tree Samui
TIP TOP LUXURY ON KOH SAMUI
Quality par excellence. These are possibly the best pool villas we have have ever stayed in. They spent a fortune on the villas (1 million USD per villa) and the quality and details are stunning. All sport GENEROUS private pools and each also has an outside whirlpool.
The location of the villas is magnificent, perched on the hillside, which slopes down to the secluded white sandy beach.
This is a perfect spot for top luxury clients with or without children; they offer kids club etc so for top luxury families this is the place to be. Adult delights include The Rainforest hydrotherapy Spa and the Saffron restaurant for signature Thai cuisine.
All in all there are 78 of the remarkable villas.
If you want to be on top of the world stay in the highest located villa with amazing and endless ocean views, a true love nest with infinity edge pool and outdoor glassed sala area.
HOW TO GET TO BANYAN TREE SAMUI
19 km drive from Samui International Airport.
Overlooking the sapphire waters of scenic Lamai Bay, the resort is nestled in a series of cascading terraces on a private hill cove in the south-eastern coast of Koh Samui.
Note: The images were spontaneously shot with a mobile phone camera during our visit. The top image was of our extensive private infinity pool, and the second image was of the main infinity view with its stunning views of turquoise sea. The beach (last image) has the pristine sand you expect in paradise...
