About Banyan Tree Phuket
Thirty years ago, our founders purchased a vast expanse of coastal land in Phuket, Thailand punctuated by lagoons of the most intense cobalt blue, only to discover that its beauty came not from Mother Nature, but the pollution by the previous tenant, a tin mine. Rather than walk away, they dedicated themselves to cleansing the acid-laden soil by planting more than 7,000 trees. In doing so, they transformed this ecological wasteland into the first environmentally sensitive Banyan Tree resort in 1994 – Banyan Tree Phuket. Since those beginnings our passion and focus on the journey, discovery and romance of travel remains at the core of our business today.
