Luxury bespoke holidays and tours to Banyan Tree, Phuket

Enter the serene world of the Banyan Tree in Phuket, where ancient oriental disciplines combine with warm Thai hospitality. The super-efficient service is friendly and unobtrusive; resort hosts cater for your every need from booking your spa treatments to arranging a round of golf. The setting is exotic: a tranquil hideaway bordered by the dazzling white beaches and the turquoise lagoon for which Phuket is famed. The tropical garden of the Banyan Tree Spa offers the perfect sanctuary to indulge and rejuvenate both mind and body. The spa has adopted a holistic approach to physical and spiritual wellbeing, drawing on traditional Asian techniques that have been passed down over the centuries, together with ancient aromatic oils and herbs and spices. The Treatment Menu is comprised of Thai and Balinese massages as well as a version of the European Swedish massage which stimulates and soothes. The Tamarind Restaurant serves delicious and nourishing spa cuisine in a partly covered outdoor setting that resembles a Japanese ornamental garden, with the tables positioned around a central pool. Mediterranean, Indian and Thai favourites are also served. The resort boasts a wide range of different restaurants offering a range of cooking styles and ambience. The Saffron serves an eclectic mix of Thai and south-east Asian gastronomy while the Watercourt offers a lavish American and Asian style buffet breakfast or Mediterranean cuisine in the evening. If you're staying in one of the Banyan Tree’s stunning villas with its own garden, pool or Jacuzzi, in-villa dining is a romantic experience not to be missed. Savour a champagne breakfast or enjoy an evening barbecue beneath the fragrant palms. The luxuriously-appointed villas are perched on the edge of the lagoon in lush tropical gardens and are decorated comfortably and stylishly using wicker furniture and honey-coloured wood. The thirteen Spa Pool Villas are equipped with their own private spa pavilion with sauna and steam room where treatments can be enjoyed in comfort and privacy. The Banyan Tree is ideal for both couples and families and offers excellent facilities and attentive service.

About Thailand

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to Thailand is the chance to explore a stunning part of the world. More people visit Thailand than any other country in Southeast Asia. With beautiful beaches and stunning cuisine, historic towns and colourful cities, it’s not hard to see why. Throw in national parks full of wildlife, rainforests and mountains to take the breath away, as well as a welcome so warm you can’t fail to be beguiled, and Thailand is a country you could spend a whole life exploring without growing tired. Bangkok is the country’s spectacular gateway, and what an introduction. A modern giant with gleaming shopping centres and dazzling nightlife, the City of Angels is also a place of timeless wonder, with ancient markets and temples, centuries-old palaces and monks in saffron robes. Thrusting, modern capital it may be, but everywhere the city is interwoven with a devout Buddhist tranquillity and warmth. In the north, Chaingrai province – aka the Golden Triangle – offers a wealth of river tours and hilltribe treks, ruined cities and cookery holidays, with Chiang Mai its stunning capital. In the south, idyllic islands are sprinkled into the Andaman Sea, with Koh Samui and Phuket merely the best known. Sliding down the coastal tail are the evergreen limestone islands of Ko Tao and Kho Phi Phi Don, filled with tall palms angling over pearlescent sand. With idyllic beaches in the south and mountainous rainforest in the north, Thailand is blessed with a rich variety of landscapes – and a range of attractions and activities to match. Whether you’re here for bone-white beaches or cookery schools, snorkelling and diving or hillwalking and kayaking, Thailand has it all.

Highlights of Thailand

Luxury resorts in the islands of the Andaman Sea; rail trip to the original Bridge Over the River Kwai; Catuchak weekend market in Bangkok; the giant reclining Buddha in Wat Pho; the Skytrain to Bangkok’s glitzy shopping centre; floating markets all over the country, with the best at Damnoen Saduak, some 65 miles southwest of Bangkok; fabulous massages; delicately spiced local food; the bus journey from Kanchanburi to Sangkhlaburi, a spectacular road through rugged karst mountains to the misty, romantic lakeside border outpost and base for many outdoor adventures; the Mae Sa-Samoeng loop, dipping and twisting along the peaks outside Chiang Mai; diving and snorkelling with whale sharks off coral-fringed islands such as Ko Tao; Chiang Mai, the beautiful northern hilltown, home to many Thai cookery courses, thanks largely to a wonderful local market; elephant trekking, Chiang Mai; the tangle of limestone mountains and rainforest in Khao Sok National Park, home to snakes, monkeys and tigers, and the incredible Rafflesia kerrii flower; Mae Hong Son province, remote crossroads of many cultures, jungle-treks to hilltribes; Mu Ko Chang Marine National Park, with its lush jungle, postcard-perfect bays, fiery sunsets, and a craggy mountainous interior sheltering a veritable Jurassic Park of flora and fauna; Sukhothai Historical Park, Thailand’s former capital, now an atmospheric site of ruins; Ayuthaya’s historical and architectural gems; the mountains and waterfalls of Khao Yai National Park; the beaches of Hua Hin; the little visited forested mountains and hilltribes of Nan province; seafood curry on Songkhla pier.

Travel around Thailand

Thailand’s rail network is very well run, with four main lines running north, south, northeast and east from Bangkok. The train is most convenient as an alternative to buses for the long, scenic journey north to Chiang Mai or south to Surat Thani.
