The Banyan Tree Spa occupies the perfect setting in which to be soothed and inspired. Relaxing and rejuvenating massages and body treatments take place against the background of a tropical garden. The philosophy is to create a luxury environment where guests feel at ease and can appreciate the beauty of the island while they are being nurtured. The intimate spa pavilions provide privacy and blend seamlessly into the surrounding nature. The treatments are designed to harness the healing powers of nature and focus on a holistic approach to rejuvenation. Choose from a range of massages, body rubs and facials or a two or three hour programme which combines a series of treatments. A session in the spa includes a cooling mint footbath in the relaxation room and a soothing herbal tea.

Signature spa treatments

Royal Banyan This signature therapy draws on the massage traditions used for centuries in the Royal Thai Palaces. The therapist begins with an oil-free Thai acupressure massage to improve blood circulation and alleviate muscle tension. Banyan herbal pouches, filled with lemongrass, cloves and coriander, are then used to apply warm sesame oil to the body while the Banyan massage contributes to the balancing of mind, body and soul.

Harmony Banyan Consists of a massage where two therapists work in harmony to massage the body. Maintaining balanced pressure the two therapists work each side of the body in unison.

Thai Ginger Healer The core of this treatment to improve circulation is an hour-long stretching Yoga massage, based upon ancient Ayurvedic principles. To soothe aching muscles, steamed herbal pouches are applied on the body in an herbal heat treatment. An enriching Thai Herbal Wrap containing fresh plai - traditionally used in Thai healing treatments - acts as a moisturizer, restoring the skin's natural balance and radiance.

Banyan Body Firmer A treatment created exclusively for women. Begins with an abdominal scrub followed by a massage using slimming creams and finally a firming mask is applied. This is then repeated on the chest. To complete the treatment is a choice of a Green Tea Facial or an anti ageing collagen toning facial.

Banyan Cleansing Facial This signature facial treatment provides a deep cleansing of all skin types. A purifying scrub and soothing mask are applied to the face as well as the neck and shoulders in order to relax and revitalise the skin.
