It’s a fact - travellers’ tastes are changing rapidly.

As our world becomes increasingly ‘digital’, we’re listening to each other more than ever before when it comes to holiday recommendations. Less likely to listen to a straightforward TV advert or take a newspaper spread at face value, we look to our peers. We read comments and reviews, consume a number of popular travel blogs and watch videos of one another on our travels – liking and analysing what we see.

Presented with countless social media profiles and review websites, we’ve begun to curate lists of unusual travel experiences we’d like to embark on to make our trips just as awe-inspiring as our friends and families, no expense spared. Not content with cookie-cutter holidays, we’re looking for that something extra special that will make our trip truly memorable (and to an extent, shareable) – and why shouldn’t we!?

As a result, hotels have to think a little harder when it comes to what their guests want, and few have thought harder than Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts. Having created diverse and rather unusual experiences across a number of fascinating destinations, here’s a few that we think you should add to your travel wish-list:
