Banyan Tree Phuket
Opened in 1994, Banyan Tree Phuket is the company’s flagship property, located within the integrated resort complex of Laguna Phuket, at Bang Tao Bay. Comprising 150 villas, they were designed to blend with the surroundings. From within the villas and all around them, our guests are keenly aware of the sights, sounds and smells of nature, from the swaying palms and dawn chorus to the sweet floral scent.
An abandoned tin mine site labeled as toxic by the UNDP and Tourism Authority of Thailand in the late 1970’s, Bang Tao Bay has been rehabilitated into what is today not only a lush tropical garden supporting not only a thriving ecosystem of wildlife, but also a community thriving from the jobs and tourism income. This location is a truly unique demonstration of the social development and environmental remediation potential of the tourism industry.
Launched in 1987 as the first integrated resort in Asia, Laguna Phuket consists of 6 resorts and occupies 600 acres of landscaped tropical grounds, incorporates several picturesque lagoons, and fronts the 8km-long white sand beach of Bang Tao Bay. Built on an abandoned tin mine, once considered too polluted to develop, Laguna Phuket is recognized and admired as one of the region's leading resorts and most successful environmental projects.
