We spent five nights at Banyan Tree Samui last week and had a wonderful time enjoying the seclusion of the resort. The place is meant for pure relaxation--disconnecting from the outside world and reconnecting with your partner--and the attentive staff were there to help make that possible in any way. My husband and I visited as part of our honeymoon...

There are many people who like fishing in Korea. There are many programs and experiences. It may be possible in Banyan Tree, but I would like to have a program where people can fish in Banyan Tree Beach, put a fish in it, and fish in it.

I stayed here over the Christmas break. The weather was bit hit and miss but over all the hotel was excellent, service, food etc was great and with a private beach our stay was relaxing. It is also near national parks. I would recommend this to anyone who needs a good relaxing holiday.
