It was an awesome experience”
2 ~ 5 July 2016 marked one of the best experiences I have had for a long time. As a frequent traveller to exotic locations and accommodations, Banyan Tree Spa Sanctuary is indeed a league of its own. One of the most valuable assets Banyan Tree is their staffs. The reception manager, therapists, room cleaning staffs, buggy drivers, and even general cleaners we meet within the vicinity of the villa, they never fail to smile and greet us. The warm gestures made my partner and I feel especially welcomed. I remember feeling under the weather on the second day of my trip that I had to visit the clinic. Upon returning to my villa, I was pleasantly surprised to receive a beautiful bouquet of flowers and got a well message from the staff members. All the staffs seemed to know that I have been feeling unwell and they will always send their warm regards whenever they see me. Such kind gestures have brought warmth to my heart. The accommodation is absolutely beautiful. We were indulging in the opulence of the villa with the gorgeous lagoon views. The place is well maintained with a touch of Balinese style we absolutely fond of. The turning down service was such a delight. Every night we were treated (with a surprise) with special elements. On the first night, our bedroom was lit with candle lights and a bottle of chilled champagne at out bedside. The second night were were introduced the romantic honey rub in the steam room. On the third night, we were treated with aromatic rose tea and dried mango. It's precisely these special and thoughtful gestures that truly set Banyan Tree worlds apart of its competitions. Banyan Tree Spa Sanctuary does not allow children below the age of 18 so it's perfect for couples who are looking to pamper themselves and romantic getaway.
Dear Ramson, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Banyan Tree Spa Sanctuary! I am thrilled to read your review and we are looking forward to welcoming you back in the near future! Kind Regards, Sriram Kailasam
Wonderful hospitality and villa environment”
Me and my wife were having a 4 days short trip to Phuket, stay at Banyan Tree Spa Sanctuary. The in-villa private pool is quite big with Jacuzzi and we could literally swim in there. Calming and tranquillising environment in the villa would surely let you relax your mind and body. Daily massage package is surely worth the money. Masseurs are all professionally trained. All staff we met inside the resort are very professional, helpful and welcoming. We would recommend the resort for families and couples.
Dear Elton, Thank you for your review and recommending us to the fellow travelers, we look forward to welcoming you back to Banyan Tree Phuket! Warm regards, Sriram Kailasam Area General Manager
From the moment we walked through the doors of the Banyan Tree Spa Sanctuary all our cares melted away. The staff are amazing. So helpful and friendly. They anticipated our every need before us and ensured our stay was super relaxing. The therapists we encountered were definitely some of the best trained i have ever encountered. Afternoon tea served daily in your own pool villa overlooking the lagoon and buggies to drive you anywhere you want to go throughout the resort. Cant recommend highly enough.
Dear Michelle, Thank you for taking the time to write such a luxurious review highlighting the associates, therapists and overall experience! We highly appreciate your recommendation and look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Warm Regards, Sriram Kailasam
Best Pool Villa hotel in Phuket”
We had bit of an unpleasant experience over check-in but thanks to wonderful manager Ms Anchana who has great communication and problem solving skills. She was willing to listen and understand my feelings. As soon as we entered our villa, we were so satisfied with the room, gardens and the pool which were meticulously and beautifully decorated. I have stayed in many different hotels in Phuket and I have to say this is the best one and I am definitely going to return. Pros: - Beautifully decorated private villas in peaceful atmosphere - Large practically designed pool compared to other pool villas in Phuket - Spacious room and heavenly bed Cons - Saffron restaurant dinner set menu was disappointing (service was great but foods were not) - Great services but speed is bit slow compared to other hotels - Lobby can get hot and it might become uncomfortable especially over slow check-in process
Dear James, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback and I'm thrilled to read Anchana was able to turn your experience around! We are all looking forward to welcoming you back to Banyan Tree Spa Sanctuary! Warm Regards, Sriram Kailasam
Quick Few Days Getaway”
The trip was a quick 2 night getaway as taking a longer leave from office was a challenge. First the positives. The villa is huge and the private pool is the largest of all I have seen so far. View is also nice if u get a lake,facing villa. Definitely value for money when compared to other villa,style resorts (free 1,hr massage for 2 pax included in the package). The hotel staff are also very attentive and responsive while the spa therapist are amongst the best I have experienced. Now the negatives. The property is very well maintained but shows signs of aging. A few items (and really only a few) were a little too worn for my liking eg. cushions on outdoor sofa. Secondly, the beach is covered with debris and driftwood (applies to the whole coast rather than the hotel alone). Lastly, there are quite frequent ferries on the lake, allowing them to intrude on your privacy a bit. Overall though the positives far outweigh the negatives and the stay was a very pleasant one.

Good & Valuable for money , anyway a bit expensive but for Exclusive stay”
Very much Pro than Cons. Just pls improve Pool & Jacuzee facility outside room for Pool Villa Room. Not enough lights inside Hot Jacuzee pool & very dark in night. Pls monitor staff scope of work, we have experience 10am one of Hotel staff climb up the fence near to Room roof & can watch guess inside when having bath without cloth / without proper cloth. Pls enhance guess privacy from outsider & hotel staff😁
Dear Muhammad, We highly appreciate your review and we have ironed out the challenge you mentioned. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future!
Really outstanding ”
Unbelievable place. If you are looking for the best, there's no need to look any further. This place is on another level, even when compared to a mandatory oriental or peninsula hotels
Dear Sergio, Thank you for sharing your outstanding experience!
It's getting old?”
Already the third year coming back here, seriously thinking if I still want to go back next year. The mosquitoes seems less than last time I've been here (less, not none). The hotel is really quite old/worn out and can do with A LOT of touch up. During our stay, the TV and the fan broke, the shower room smells like 5 sweaty men working out inside the shower room for 3 hours. The pool is really dirty (and I was stupid enough not to call someone to clean it up). (the pond is quite dirty) The house keeping keep forget "something" every day, refill the mini bar, the foam bath, the matches (but gave us 3 incense to burn), forgot to refill amenities. They will agree a time with you on the daily massage and housekeeping and turn down service. I'm those kind of person whom, if you don't agree a time with me, I'm fine. But if you agree a time with me, you have to stick with the time; which they failed to do so on the first day. We asked for a 10am massage, and we wait for them. Till 10:40 still no one came. I called and then they told me they can't do it at 10am and can we change to 11. I would expect you to call me when you knew you can't make it at 10, not told us ONLY when we called. (same thing happened to the turndown service, we waited, no one came, we called and THEN they tell us the time we choose they cannot make it) It definitely is not a bad hotel, but with that price range, I (maybe greedy) would expect a higher standard.
Dear Yim, Thank you for your review!
Great staff great massage. ”
Unlimited massage in thevilla is the biggest draw ! And the masseus were very skillful! Will be back for sure
Dear Linda, I would like to express our gratitude for your visit and your gracious words.

This resort is just a PERFECT retreat holiday. will return soon
Dear Doug, Perfect review! Thank you for your kind words and we will definitely work on improving the afternoon tea.
Luxury stay with excellent service.”
Fantastic. Definitely will come again.
Good but not to the expectation ”
I had high hopes for the hotel as I booked the sanctuary spa villa, but it didn't live to my expectations. My wife did the massage during our 3 nights stay and she didn't like it. There were a lot of construction around and no much to do around the premises of the hotel
Dear Haitham, We highly appreciate your review as we strive to deliver an exceptional service. Banyan Tree Spa Sanctuary offers 50 unlimited activities and the resort is connected to the main Banyan Tree property as well as provides access to the other hotels in Laguna and Laguna Phuket which includes Canal Village and complimentary bus and boat service to get around. 5min away by taxi there is Boat Avenue which consists of a supermarket, various international restaurants, and shops. We look forward to welcoming you back so you can better explore the area. Warm Regards, Sriram Kailasam
Great villas. Definitely want to go back. ”
Dear Wai, We are truly appreciative of your visit and your kind words. With our long history of successful operation, we are aware of the greater attention required for the hardware and we continuously restore and refresh our property with regular upkeep and renovation. We take pride in being a flagship resort of Banyan Tree, and the true wow factor that remains us as the island’s top choice is undoubtedly our service culture. We are motivated by your feedback to be a better resort and keep working on maintaining our property. I am very confident that the hardware will continue to match our service. Great hospitality stands the test of time, on behalf of the whole team, thank you tremendously for your encouragement. Sincerely, Sriram Kailasam General Manager
푸켓 여행의 이유”
개인적으론 푸켓의 시내 분위기도 물가도 영 별루라 그냥 여기에만 머물다 한국 오는게 최선..ㅋ
직원들 굉장히 섬세하게 잘 챙겨주고 마사지 미쳤고 뷰는 뭐 말할것도없음 다만 외진곳에 있어서 관광하려면 택시타고 한참 나와야됨. 반얀트리 갈거면 숙소에만 계시는거 추천! 숙소에만 있어도 개 좋 음
당신의 검토와 피드백에 감사드립니다
진정한 반얀트리를 즐기고 싶다면 스파 생츄어리부터”
반얀트리 푸켓은 반얀트리 브랜드가 시작 된 지점입니다. 그러한 반얀트리 푸켓에서 겨우 숙소와 식사만 즐기고 가는 것은, 절반의 반얀트리도 즐기지 못하는 셈입니다. 좋게 말하면 전통이 깊고 유구한 역사를 자랑하는 풀빌라이지만, 나쁘게 말하자면 그 만큼 오래된 설계와 시설을 갖고 있기 때문이죠. 그러한 풀빌라 숙소 안에서도 만족스러운 삶을 즐기다 갈 수 있는 가장 좋은 방법은 스파 생츄어리에서 제공하는 무제한 웰니스 프로그램과 하루 한 번의 마사지 프로그램 이용 입니다. 무제한 웰니스 프로그램은 매일의 프로그램이 아침부터 해 질때 까지 제공되며 저는 네 가지 클래스를 들었습니다. 쿠킹 클래스, 요가 기초반, 매트 필라테스, 자세교정. 특히 쿠킹 클래스는 라구나 단지 내 클럽하우스 식당에서 직접 배울 수 있어서 좋았습니다. 모든 웰니스 프로그램은 스파 생츄어리 가격 내에 포함되어 있으므로 추가 요금은 전혀 들지 않습니다. 또한 2박 동안 바디 마사지 1회, 얼굴 마사지 1회 받았습니다. 원래의 총 비용은 1인당 9,500THB 약 20만원 정도지만 이 역시 숙박 비용 내에 포함되어 있어서 따로 돈을 지불하지는 않았습니다. 물론 그 이상의 옵션을 추가 비용 지불로 이용 할 수 있습니다. 반얀트리 푸켓을 제대로 즐길 수 있던 2박 3일 이었습니다. 단순한 풀빌라 만으로 바라보자면, 라구나 단지 내 신축 빌라들에게도 다소 밀릴 수 있지만 그럼에도 불구하고 충만하게 즐길 수 있던 이유는 스파 생츄어리를 통해 경험할 수 있던 반얀트리 브랜드의 바디/마인드 리프레시라 생각합니다. 혹시나 겨우 10여만원 차이로 단순 풀빌라 숙박을 고민중이시라면, 2인 기준 1박 50만원 정도를 지불해도 그닥 아깝지는 않은듯 합니다.
