Post-holiday season can be a struggle. The stress of finding the perfect gifts, muddling through snowstorms, and dealing with your conservative in-laws can take a pretty steep toll. Well, pack your bags, and your “baggage” and flee to heaven IRL (or something pretty close) for some much-needed rejuvenation. Banyan Tree Phuket is an unparalleled premier spa sanctuary that rests on the south-west coast of Phuket, Thailand. Here, the goal of wellness and peacefulness is fostered by the tranquil, tropical surroundings.

The decor blends traditional Thai with clean modern looks, creating a calm-inducing ambiance.With 137 options of villas and housing, each situated with a sundeck that leads to a natural garden and an outdoor jet pool, Banyan Tree cultivates the relaxation oasis you so desperately crave. 

Through time-honored traditions, Banyan Tree offers a range of therapeutic outlets to bring you to serenity. From in-villa massages and herbal massage treatments to tai chi and yoga--you’re sure to find peace at this little slice of nirvana.

Look no further for authentic, specially crafted dining. Internationally-renowned Executive Chef Alfonso de la Dehesa helms the kitchen, serving signature, award-winning dishes that pull together the zest of the bright culture with expert craftsmanship.

Be sure to explore Phuket's natural and cultural wonders by kayaking through the Phang Nga Bay, or trek to Big Buddha, who overlooks the placid Thai coast. Reconnect with nature by snorkeling your way through the waters of Khai Nok Island and journeying through Phuket's rainforest. At Old Phuket Town, and the Weekend Market, dubbed the "mother of all markets" you will find yourself immersed in the vibrant Thai culture, surrounded by vivid shops, and people.
