DoublePool Villas by Banyan Tree 

Regal retreat for modern sybarites

A stay in a DoublePool Villa feels like a stay in a miniature Thai palace.

Adorned with intricate traditional-style roofs, surrounded by coconut groves and fronted by wildlife-rich lagoons, DoublePool Villas by Banyan Tree Phuket offers the ultimate in indulgent Thai accommodation. As it’s part of Banyan Tree Phuket you can enjoy access to a large swimming pool and superb restaurants, then return to a secluded villa set above a wading pool so it looks as if it’s floating.

Why we love DoublePool Villas by Banyan Tree

  • The villas are set in a secluded area of Banyan Tree Phuket, cocooned in greenery and overlooking wildlife-rich lagoons

  • They combine traditional and modern Thai design elements beautifully, with gabled roofs paired with full-length windows

  • There’s water everywhere, with lagoon views, a private plunge pool and the shallow pool above which the villas seem to float

  • Guests enjoy a daily ‘herbal cuddle’ such as a scented bath, fresh coconuts from a floating vendor and a traditional welcome

Banyan Tree resorts are renowned around the world for their beautiful and extensive spas and it is no different at this, the company's flagship property. The standard of service here is that that sets the tone for Banyan Tree resorts around the world - each and every therapist attends the prestigious Banyan Tree Spa Academy Phuket or the second academy in Bintan.

There is a wide range of services on offer here including traditional Thai healing treatments inspired by those therapies that have been handed down through the generations; and time-honoured Ayurveda signature treatments. Alongside the popular treatments such as facials, body scrubs and massages there's a yoga schedule starting with sunrise Yoga and ending with sunset meditation.

The DoublePool Villas have a number of exclusive experiences. During their stay, guests can enjoy a Herbal Cuddle - an infusion of turmeric, lemongrass and lime steams and baths. The Thai Coffee Man shows how traditional Thai-style coffee is made by local vendors and fresh coconuts are delivered directly to your villa.

You may not wish to leave your 15-metre infinity pool, but if you do, Bang Tao beach is just a short distance from the resort. You can also explore the lagoons by paddleboard, kayak or three-wheel water bike.

Guests can give alms to the monks, plant a tree, teach English to a local community and get involved in beach cleaning.
