The hotel staff is so accommodating and polite. Our room was spacious and very clean. Food and drinks are expensive, but were great at all restaurants and having to...

As we live in Bangkok, we have travelled to many of the hotels on Thailand and Koh Samui and without a doubt the Banyan Tree is our favourite as it feels like a little piece of paradise, hence why we have been there 7 times !! Anyway this Christmas and New Year was somewhat different due to the shocking weather...

For the amount you pay for your stay here and what you get for your money doesn't add up at all! If this was a $200/night hotel I would give it four stars. First off we had so many issues with our room that it got to the point where asked to be moved but the resort was fully booked...

This resort really is exceptional. We stayed in one of the Horizon Hillcrest Villas and it was incredible. Awakening to the spectacular sunrise over the ocean and slipping straight from the bedroom into the private infinity pool was just divine. If you like a bit of luxury, start saving now because it really is worth it. The staff are one...

The resort is beautiful, management friendly. The biggest disappointment was restaurants quality and servive level. Alcohol beverages are very middle range and well overpriced (Maledives Prices). Anyhow if somebody is looking for relax, nice spa and good accomodation, this place is worth recommendation.
