“Immaculate accommodation in a good location”
Reviewed 7 August 2011

The Banyan Resort is a modern villa complex with many interesting and innovative design features. The Villas are large and spacious and maintained (and cleaned) to a very high standard. We opted for a villa with a private pool but their alternative shared pool and private Jacuzzi option would probably suit a family better. Throughout the resort are long narrow swimming pools (of 1.3m depth throughout) with weirs that make for a very pleasing feature; great for children that are competent swimmers and excellent areas for length swimming too. A children's pool is also available.

The resort is located about 10 mins south of Hua Hin by taxi and less than 5 mins from Takiab Beach and is set in a very picturesque place. We liked being out of the centre of Hua Hin and taxi/tuk tuk costs are reasonable (150 Baht). The resort offers free shuttle bus services to Hua Hin and the beach, though the times were not always convenient for us.

Although a resort style complex service standards were generally very good and any request was attended to very quickly. Golf carts are available to transfer you quickly to and from reception, though nowhere is too far to walk.

Breakfast exceeded our expectations and though there was little variation in the items the food was all of high quality and presented well. The place is very busy at weekends when weekenders from Bangkok descend and it can get quite busy at breakfast, though there is a very good covered outside patio available.

The gardens are immaculate throughout. The golf club, bar and restaurant are worth a visit (free 15min shuttle to/from reception) and are worth a visit early evening, though some drink prices (wine in particular) are high.

Overall, we would have no hesitation in recommending the Banyan Resort and Hua Hin to a family.

First the good news this place is great for family as the villas are very clean and spacious. The staff are polite and courteous and the facilities are also good. I had taken a 2 bedroom villa with a private pool but I would suggest take a villa with the jaccuzi. I have 2 big kids and one infant who was very comfortable runnimg around the house.

Now the cons:
Water flow in shower very slow
They charged me for sugar!!! Not too much but still..
Very little tissue in the toilets and around the rooms
No 24 hour room service
Just one single restauran, their sports pub was good for the games(I am a teetottler)they had a wii, pool and darts
The kitchen utensils were not cleaned from previous use
The tap water is not drinkable

Overall a decent experience but due to the basics I would not come back here even though I liked the place.

Nice place to stay,
Nice dining room
Villa with 2 bedrooms are great for families
the jacuzzi and the pool are very cool for family activities.
Next time, I will try Zone 5 as my friend's recommendation ;)
Only concern is about their unavailable of beach, fortunately, they provide shuttle bus to the beach 5-6 times a day ;)

mind blowing property. awesome golf course and fantastic surrounding. True sleazeless family vacation hot spot.
a must for family outings in aisa region.
we had a great holiday here....the only thing to keep in mind - keep atleast 3 to 4 nights for this place. we found 2 nights too short for this resort.
and one suggestion for the management - pls provide town and beach drops more frequently as the resort is almost 7 kms out of the downtown area with virtually no mode of travel but the hotel taxi.

Room Tip: great family location

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Banyan recently. Unfortunately we only stayed 2 nights before heading to BKK, it was hard to leave. We could have lingered on for another couple of weeks. We enjoyed our stay and appreciated the friendliness of all the employees at the resort. They are attentive and very pleasant. The hotel villas are huge. The villa we stayed in was linked to a free form pool and we had our semi private Jacuzzi, the living area is large with a small kitchenette, large bedrooms all of them en suite. The Lemongrass restaurant served great food at affordable prices. We were surprised to find that the prices were reasonable in this resort, even for a decent glass of wine!!! What a gem! I can highly recommend this place to anyone going to Hua Hin and you don’t need to be a golfer to stay there.
