What the reviews say

Reviews for the Banyan Tree Resort Phuket are overwhelmingly positive, just as you’d expect from a member of this high-end brand. Nearly all guests report that the hotel is very well run, spotless, and wonderfully relaxing. The grounds, staff, service, and restaurants all get very high marks.

A few past guests did have some frustrations, however, so things can go wrong, just as they do at any of the larger resorts. The management seem to respond quickly to the complications, as long as they know about them, so reviews tend to be quite positive even from people who had a wrinkle along the way.
