Banyan Tree Samui, a luxurious 88-villa resort commanding one of Thailand’s most dramatic vistas, is paying homage this summer to the island’s most iconic natural resource – the coconut.

Throughout July and August, the hotel’s spa is offering a Coconut Immersion package, designed to offer guests an invigorating two-hour experience, enhanced by the nurturing qualities of coconut oil and milk.

The treatment begins with a 60-minute Gentle Touch Massage where soothing, long strokes and thumb pressure are applied in tandem to relax the body. These techniques uplift the senses and ease muscle tension, leaving the client fully revitalized.

The massage is followed by a 30-minute Pineapple & Coconut Scrub. “Our nourishing concoction is rich in Vitamin C, so it repairs skin and protects against damage,” said spa manager Montira Vichiankoo. “The soothing nature of the coconut leaves your skin with minimized pores, enhanced moisture, and a soft texture.”

Lastly, the refreshment and relaxation process – the guest is treated to relaxing foot bath and served with assorted fresh fruit, yogurt and herbal teas.

The treatment is available at the resort from 1 July to 31 August 2018 at a reduced price of 5,000 baht nett.

Villas at Banyan Tree Samui, each with private infinity pool, start from US$750 per night.
