Thailand is known for its beautiful tropical beaches, crystal clear oceans, opulent palaces, ancient ruins and temples.  Phuket is an island just off the coast of Thailand, a rain forested mountainous island that has some of the most beautiful and popular beaches.

The Salt team recently took a day trip to Banyan Tree Phuket, which has just been newly refurbished and saw first hand the new and luxurious additions to the resort.  Banyan Tree Phuket is now an all villa resort with large pools at each villa – super exciting so you can have your own private dip!

Banyan Tree has worked on the cuisine making it a reviled experience whichever restaurant you choose to dine in. The Saffron Thai restaurant creates signature dishes and brings local Thai flavours to life or you can dine al fresco during the day and enjoy new Executive Chef, Alfonso De La Dehesa Latino touch to some delicious mouth-watering meals.
