This was our second stay at the Banyan Tree, our last being 7 years ago. It was wonderful then and one always worries that a revisit will be disappointing. Not so. If anything it was even better.
We stayed her for 5 nights with two friends and had one bedroom suites on the club floor. The club floor was great as it was relaxed and welcoming and well laid out, no shortage of seating and had the benefit of a beautiful, relaxing décor. We were offered a great breakfast choice, food and alcohol served throughout the day until 8pm and cocktails served between 5.30 and 7.30.
The suites are incredible, so vast and spacious with the most wonderfully large comfy bed, toiletries, robes, slippers, tea / coffee, two TVs, rain showers, egg baths, study area, sofas and amazing views, these rooms have everything associated with 5 star living.
One of the best features about The Banyan Tree is the staff. They are so happy and helpful. The best area to see the staff perform well is the concierge desk. The guys there work around the clock and can organise or see to anything you want. They recommended trips which were outstanding, organised for us to have a suit and shirts made which were Saville Row quality (and what a fantastic experience too), moved us around in taxis and best of all, supplied us with Nat, who, for FREE, will take you on a shopping tour as a professional shopper. Now I regard myself as a great shopper but Nat was excellent. We told him the sort of items we were looking for and he recommended where we should go and accompanied us in the taxi to our destination where he proceeded to barter the best price for our goods. He is such an asset to the hotel. Nat works at the hotel as a porter but wants to better his languages and so volunteers to take visitors shopping. AMAZING. He smiled all the time and carried our bags too. Phenomenal service.
On the roof of the Banyan Tree is Vertigo restaurant and the Moon bar. Probably one of the most iconic places to go for a cocktail or a meal in the world. I'm pleased to say the staff up there were great too, especially those in the bar end who really seemed to know what was going on, who needed serving next, who had what etc. etc. We had a fabulous dinner one evening sat at the edge of the roof in the restaurant area. It was fab and they also came to take photos of us which they presented at the end of the meal in cardboard frames, a lovely touch.
We all had a massage in the spa and I have to say mine was with Kae (I think) and was the best massage I have ever had and I've had a lot all over the world. My husband used the gym as he works out a lot. His massage was also outstanding.
I cannot praise this beautiful, well positioned, friendly and 5 star hotel too highly.
