Banyan Tree Samui Voted Tops In Thailand
Banyan Tree Samui, an 88-villa property overlooking a secluded bay of sapphire waters in the Gulf of Thailand, has been recognized as one of Asia’s top resorts in Conde Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards.
Banyan Tree Samui was ranked No. 21 in the prestigious “Top Resorts in Asia” category for 2018, one of only six nominated resorts in Thailand and the sole representative of the island of Koh Samui.
“In a feat of engineering and architecture, the villas dramatically ascend the hillsides on stilts, clinging to the slopes,” Conde Nast Traveler wrote in its review. No razzle-dazzle here. The real magic is in thoughtful details – a built-in head cushion in the bathtub, perfectly focused reading lights, and not one but four rain-style showerheads.
“Best of all, the resort delivers a real sense of place, particularly in the restaurants’ authentic Thai dishes, the confident masseurs in the spa, and, of course, this being Thailand, a genuinely hospitable staff.”
“This Conde Nast award is indicative of the amazing teamwork and camaraderie we have here at the resort,” said general manager Remko Kroesen. “From the villa hosts, who greet each and every guest when they arrive, to the limousine drivers, the gardeners and the bar staff, everyone gives 100% in making sure a stay at Banyan Tree Samui is an unforgettable experience.”
Opened in 2010, this is the first time that Banyan Tree Samui has been recognized in Conde Nast Traveler’s annual survey – awards widely hailed as one of the most coveted distinctions in the global travel media industry.
