Neil Bedford talks about a relaxing spa on Phuket for those who just love being pampered - and reminds of a great special offer for Select customers...
Nestled amid peaceful gardens, this Phuket spa resort lies in an extensive complex that includes 3 km of beach and 6 living lagoons. Banyan Tree Spa Sanctuary comprises 14 one-bedroom pool villas, and is located in the same resort complex as Banyan Tree Resort and DoublePool Villas by Banyan Tree.

The spa sanctuary itself has no restaurants or facilities and most guests tend to stay in their spacious villas by their private pools for the majority of the time.
You do have the option of the beach and several restaurants in the complex (all are 5-10 minutes buggy or bike ride).
20 mins from Phuket international airport.
