heart of Banyan Tree for much of its growth, and recently expressed admiration for the entire Banyan Tree
family. “Our achievements so far have been beyond anything we could have hoped for in the early years of
the property. But every award we win, and every smile we see on the face of our valued and loyal guests, is a
testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team. Our launch of the new Serenity Villas and

From Transformation to Celebration

Over thirty years ago, the founders of Banyan Tree purchased a vast expanse of coastal land in Phuket,
Thailand, that was punctuated by lagoons of the most intense cobalt blue. They later discovered that its
beauty came not from mother nature, but the pollution left by the previous tenant, a tin mine. Rather than
walk away, they dedicated themselves to cleansing the acid-laden soil by planting more than 7,000 trees. In
doing so, they transformed this ecological wasteland into the first environmentally sensitive Banyan Tree resort
in 1994.

This was the birth of Banyan Tree Phuket, a sanctuary for the senses with a vision to offer guests a naturally
luxurious, ecological, and culturally sensitive experience. 25 years and numerous awards later, Banyan Tree
Phuket is proud to offer unique delights for its guests – including spacious DoublePool Villas, and an exclusive
Wellbeing journey at Banyan Tree Phuket’s Spa Sanctuary. These and other highlights of the Banyan Tree
experience adhere to Banyan Tree’s long-time philosophy of treating its guests with a holistic approach to the
mind, body and soul.

Banyan Tree Phuket’s guests over the years have embraced this approach, and turned the resort into the
successful brand it is today. The resort is more dedicated than ever to its mission: “Aspiring to build globally
recognised brands by creating exceptional experiences for our guests, instilling pride and integrity in our
associates, and enhancing both the physical and human environment in which we operate.”
In the spirit of celebration, Banyan Tree Phuket is offering a special promotion to commemorate its
Banyan Tree Phuket 25th Anniversary Offer:
Until 18th December 2019, save 25% off Banyan Tree Phuket’s Best Available Rate, as well as Food &
