Indulge your senses at Banyan Tree Phuket

APPROACHING the four towering banyan trees outside the entrance, you can already feel the enchantment that awaits within the resort.

“The resort was built around these trees,” Banyan Tree Phuket’s head of communications Khun Nikki told Travel Wire Asia.

Away from the notoriously busy parts of Phuket island, Banyan Tree Phuket offers guests the opportunity to write their own chapter in a luxury book, one you’ll find hard to put down and undoubtedly return to many times.

Nestled between a tropical lagoon and the glistening waters of the Andaman Sea, Banyan Tree Phuket knows how to indulge all your senses – from the fresh jasmine flower bracelet wrapped delicately around your wrist upon arrival to the moreish homemade tom yum biscuits served while checking in.

But this is just the beginning.

The subtle taste of lemongrass in the air around the resort and the cool breeze flowing in from the lagoon lulls you into a sense of serenity.

The resort offers 175 private pool villas which can be found beyond a perfectly trimmed magnolia pagoda.

Boasting one, two and three-bedroom properties, all with unrivaled privacy, these villas are perfect for couples wanting to coddle in each other’s company or for traveling families searching for unique and memorable experiences.

The tranquil setting is something not often associated with bustling Phuket, as only the sounds of tropical birds wistfully swooping among the trees and the melody of bush-dwelling crickets will disturb you here.

The cherry blossom-pink walls encasing the private pool villas charmingly reflect traditional Thai architecture.

Teak wooden doors open out onto a neatly kept path, with a sunken turquoise pool and deck to one side, and the overtly curved-roof villa to the front.

A dreamy, soft mattress atop a raised platform, wide lounge sofa, grand desk, and fruit-filled coffee table await inside the villa.

The double sinks and floor-to-ceiling windowed shower room lets you feel close to nature even when you’re inside.

But the defining feature of these properties is the standalone white granite outdoor bathtubs.

A choice of sumptuous oils, crystals, lotions, and potions accompany the tub for the ultimate soak.

Banyan Tree Phuket also offers Double Pool Villas, because one long infinity pool overlooking the lake is simply not enough.

So, the quirky designers encased the master bedroom in a second shallow pool separated by glass.

You needn’t let the size of the resort put you off from straying beyond your villa either. The onsite buggy service is quick and safe.

Alternatively, hop on a Banyan Tree Phuket bike and cruise around the resort.

Continue your sensory experience in Banyan Tree Spa, the first luxury spa in Asia to re-introduce an exotic blend of ancient health and beauty practices.

Unwind in your own private spa fortress room, surrounded by a trickling moat and flora cascading over the temple-looking walls.

Each therapist is handpicked from the Banyan Tree Spa Academy and does a sterling job of quite literally massaging every ounce of negativity out your body.

Banyan Tree Phuket also offers culinary excellence to indulge your sense of taste. Just thinking about picking one of their 11 dining options works up an appetite.

We suggest heading to Water Court, a lake-facing restaurant inspired by every corner of the globe, for breakfast.

Drizzle fresh honeycomb over French cheese and Italian ham, slurp on spicy noodles, stack your plate high with an English breakfast or watch the flakes from fresh pastry drift to the floor as you savor your pain au chocolat.

Let the sweet sounds of traditional Thai music, danced to by beautiful sirens, lure you into Saffron by Banyan Tree Phuket at dinner.

Tableside cooking, old-style Thai tastes with a contemporary twist, a delightful atmosphere, and impeccable service encompass the sensual ethos of the resort.

Flourishes of genuine care and ultimate luxury are experienced through the resort from the gleaming staff who wish you good day, to the personalized soft cotton T-shirts complimentary with every stay.

The only skimpy thing about Banyan Tree Phuket is your choice of swimwear, they’ve got everything else covered.
