Paradise found
The whole package. Elegance, beauty, fantastic service and unadulterated luxury. Villas are ample and stunning. Staff anticicapates needs. One small gripe is that the beach is overstaffed while the pool, at times, had not a single staff member there. Also would have liked a better upfront description of all the offerings.,.we only learned about the bird watching tour too late. But these are small issues compared to the impecable quality to be found here.

Amazing resort which is very well run
They are hard to fault. The room was incredible, staff beyond reproach and food was brilliant if a little pricey. Sometimes you have to wait a few minutes for the buggy but it was hardly an inconvenience. Other times the buggy would arrive within 90 seconds of making the call or one is outside the spa or restaurant ready to go. If you are looking for a quality five star resort with a great private beach, this should be on your list. Villas vary with their view and privacy levels so make sure that you put in a request for what you want (afternoon sun, best view, privacy, etc). There is not much around the resort (you can walk to neighboring resorts such as Silavadee) for their better value spa and restaurant facilities but there is not much else within walking distance. That being said, if you are going to Banyan Tree to spend most of your time outside the resort you have the wrong idea.

Loved it
Overall would say the banyan tree is the best hotel we have been in. We enjoyed it thoroughly. Service was exceptional 99% of the time. Will only say as a negative, the destination dinner on the beach was not good value for what you get. The food was good but not excellent, service could be better.
