Banyan Tree Spa

Banyan Tree Spa Philosophy

When Banyan Tree Spa opened in Asia’s first luxury spa resort – Banyan Tree Phuket, Thailand in 1994, it pioneered the tropical garden spa concept with its Eastern therapies and holistic focus on spiritual, mental and physical harmony. As the first luxury oriental spa in Asia, it reintroduced an exotic blend of ancient health and beauty practices which have been passed down from generation to generation.

Like the tropical and sacred tree from which it got its name, Banyan Tree Spa offers guests a Sanctuary for the Senses for total rejuvenation. To achieve this, the spa focuses on a non-clinical, ‘high-touch, low-tech’ approach, emphasising the traditions of Asian-inspired healing therapies that celebrate the human touch and the use of natural ingredients such as herbs, spices, and flowers.


Banyan Tree Spas Around the World

Following its extraordinary success in Phuket, Banyan Tree Spa went on to open more spas in  Thailand, Indonesia, Maldives, Greater China, Japan, Korea, Mexico, United Arab Emirates, Mauritius, the Seychelles, Singapore, Vietnam and more. A strong emphasis is placed on the use of indigenous products and ingredients of each country to impart a local flavour for a “sense of place”.


Professional Training of Banyan Tree Spa Therapists

At Banyan Tree Spa, the highlight of each spa experience is the training of its spa therapists. Banyan Tree Spa Academy Phuket was set up in 2001 to train a dedicated group of spa therapists for Banyan Tree Spas and Angsana Spas, ensuring high quality service standards and consistency in all its spas around the world.


Signature Treatments

At Banyan Tree Spa, spa experiences are heightened with a range of signature treatments.

The highlight of the Royal Banyan treatment is the Royal Banyan Herbal Pouch Massage, using East-meets-West techniques and a herbal pouch dipped in warm Sesame Oil to iron out muscular tension and improve blood circulation. Body treatments, created using local indigenous ingredients such as herbs and spices, are perfect complements to this signature treatment.

A signature Banyan Tree Spa innovation, the Tropical Rainmist experience is an indulging combination of Rainmist Steam Bath and Rain Shower to uplift your senses as an ideal prelude to the body treatments that follow. The Rainmist experience culminates with a signature massage to leave you in a state of deep relaxation.
