Travellers looking to fly to Phuket for a spot of luxury could consider a stay at the Banyan Tree.Erin O’Dwyer, writing in the Sydney Morning Herald, explained the resort offers guests “the ultimate in Thai luxury” within its 68-acre complex.

In addition to a private swimming pool, outdoor sunken bath and meditation pavilion, the hotel also has a 18-hole championship golf course and 25 spa rooms offering a whole host of traditional and non-traditional Thai treatments.

First opened in 1994, the Banyan Tree has its own spa academy plus a marine lab which focuses on protecting turtles in the region.

Recently, the resort has also expanded to include 22 villas that are designed to offer luxury accommodation for families, with special children’s rooms and two pools.

Banyan Tree’s marketing manager, Christina Hoff, explained: “We get people who came here years ago on their honeymoon or as a couple, who are now coming back with their kids in tow.”

The resort is a 20-minute drive away from Phuket International Airport and a 25-minute drive from the main centre of Phuket.
