Visited during our honeymoon in July, and the hotel is pretty amazing.
Like anywhere, there are plus points and minus points, but it is hard to fault the set-up, the approach of the staff and the rooms.
The plot is very big on a slope that goes down to the sea, all based on individual villas of varying sizes. We were in the sea view near the top of the hotel (furthest from the sea) and the room was massive. Everything you could possibly need unless you are a celebrity and have a stupid amount of high maintenance requirements - anyone who criticises the facilities in the room, or the whole hotel for that matter, deserves not to be listened to in my opinion. There is a very nice restaurant right by the sea, Jumana, which provides the sort of food you would get in Michelin starred restaurants and stunning views of the ocean. The other main restaurant, Bambu, is fine with a good range on the menu. The staff were all great, could not fault them throughout the week.
The only negatives were more around the intangibles. When you arrive at the hotel it feels like a big American hotel set up for business, rather than a romantic retreat. And because it is such a big hotel it can be criticised for not feeling intimate.
Overall, had a great time and would try out other Banyans in future.
