Nothing quite says “I love you” like a honeymoon on a tropical island. There you are, surrounded by nothing but palm trees and a turquoise sea, basking in the infinity pool with your lover while waiters serve up champagne and seafood.
Open your eyes! It’s not a dream – you’re at the Banyan Tree resort on Koh Samui, one of the idyllic dreamy islands in the gorgeous Gulf of Thailand. Banyan Tree is set in a secluded bay far from tourist-mania. In fact, the 38-acre lush property has its own exclusive beach and bay, guaranteeing guests a sense of serenity and privacy. Likewise, each of the 88 villas at Banyan Tree is tucked away from view, and nestled into a cascading hillside of flora and coconut trees. Think fantasy weddings, romantic getaways, unbridled luxury.
The hotel does have a few things to do apart from lazing and loving. It has three outstanding restaurants, each with startling ocean vistas and mouth-watering menus of tasty Thai and international fare. The resort has an on-site nature trail with bird-watching; a resident speedboat for picnicking and swimming in the Deep Blue; a kids’ club; a yoga center; and a highly acclaimed spa offering Thai massage and holistic hydrotherapy treatment.
And now Banyan Tree Samui has unveiled a choice of romantic packages, either to complement your Big Day or as a honeymoon from heaven.
With its own Romance Concierge on property, Banyan Tree Samui is an ideal wedding venue. Its Infinity Wedding Package is tailored to take care of you from the moment you get off the plane at Koh Samui’s boutique airport and step into the limousine.
If you’re thinking more of a honeymoon, you will find it hard to beat the blissful whitesand beach at Banyan Tree. Their honeymoon package includes a 90-minute spa treatment for two, while the Sense of Romance promotion offers complimentary dining options including a private breakfast prepared just for you by the chef on the veranda next to your infinity pool. Villas at Banyan Tree Samui, each with private infinity pool, start from €400 euros per night.
