Already operating 63 top-class spas in 24* countries around
the globe, the world-leading Banyan Tree Spa brand definitely
needs no introduction. But what I will tell you is that its
Banyan Tree Spa Samui is probably the best of the bunch.
And here's why...
The fact that its parent resort, Banyan Tree Samui, is spread
luxuriously around its own private cove near Lamai is a very
big factor, as there's space, space and even more space here,
with breathtaking views at every turn. And the spa, itself,
covers more area than many of the island's smaller resorts!
The fact that there're 10 superb fully–equipped spa pavilions
(each including a massage room, a bath tub, an ‘ordinary‘
shower room plus a Vichy-shower room) at a spa is usually its
major attraction, but here, at Banyan Tree Spa Samui, it's just
one of many. And the list goes on.
There's a fully – quipped gym, a state–of–the–art yoga
studio, a top-quality beauty salon, plus a complete range of
massage and body treatments available, including a number
of Ayurvedic therapies. And all the services are performed by
therapists who've graduated from the renowned Banyan Tree
Spa Academy, which was established in Phuket, in May 2001.
Quite simply, spa training doesn't get any better than this, and
that becomes very apparent when you have a spa experience
at Banyan Tree Spa Samui.
But I've saved the most fascinating and, arguably, the spa's
most interesting attraction until last. And that's the part of Banyan
Tree Spa Samui that's called, quite simply, The Rainforest. They
describe it as ’a complete hydrothermal experience combining
the best of European spa and hydrothermal therapy with the
essence of Asian wellness philosophy to create a haven of
serenity, warmth and comfort’, and this just about sums it up.
The Rainforest is a dedicated area of the spa, offering its
very own unique spa experience. A ’rain walk’ along a warm
cascading 'rain' pathway leads you in and introduces you to the
rest of the hydrothermal therapies, of which there are many. Herbal steams, bodysaltscrubs and hot showers, a Rasul
capsule (in which you're covered in therapeutic mud), Swiss
and bucket showers, gently warmed saunas, ice fountains, foot
massages, a magnificent ‘Vitality Pool‘, and, above all else,
plenty of relaxation throughout.
Altogether, a visit to Banyan Tree Spa Samui, in general,
and The Rainforest, in particular, is an absolute must for all
adventurous spa lovers; and ones who appreciate the finest of
spa experiences available anywhere in the world.
