What makes up a perfect holiday? OK, so answers will surely differ from person-to-person but being widely reductive we can assume that three things would top most people’s lists: a great location, a wonderful resort and splendid company.

First let’s look at location. Now this can be anywhere on planet Earth – well the surface, we stopped holidays to the Earth’s core after Jules Verne’s adventures with the dinosaurs. Some people like to take the backpacking InterRailing route and see as many places as they can on as little sleep as possible, while other people are happy with a caravan in South Wales. Most people though, if given a choice, would probably pick the paradise island option; an island just like Koh Samui. For readers not familiar with this sparkling tropical wonder, it sits just off the coast of Thailand and looks something (or exactly) like this:Banyan Tree samuiSo that’s the location covered, but what about the resort? If you are going to stay on one of the world’s most aesthetically pleasing islands why not stay in one of world’s most stunning resorts: Banyan Tree Samui. This deluxe 5-star property overlooks the rather splendid majesty of Lamai Bay while the elevated villas sit snugly on a completely private hill cove to the south-east of the island. It offers serene seclusion, a warm inviting atmosphere and incredible views of the Gulf of Thailand.

It is not all about the view though. A luxury resort like Banyan Tree does more than just paint a pretty picture: it delivers it to you with signature style and service. Rid yourself of the traditional nine-to-five stress at the Banyan Tree Spa, an award-winning experience offering a range of Asian-inspired treatments. The resort’s therapists are trained at Banyan Tree Spa Academy in Phuket, so you can ensure that each visit will feature a consistency of quality and service you won’t find anywhere else.

The Rainforest, otherwise known as the hydrothermal therapy centre, is definitely worth a visit while a different form of relaxation is available in the Yoga Room. If you want to work up a sweat, Banyan Tree also provides a state-of-the-art gym to meet all your cardiovascular needs.

Of course, if it is a family getaway you are going to want to keep the kids safe and busy while you melt away at the resort’s spa. This is where the Kids’ Club might come in as handy as a backup generator at a major US sports event. Open daily and catering to 4 – 12 year-olds, activities include traditional Thai dance classes, and art and crafts.

For a more business-orientated affair the resort delivers boardroom facilities that comfortably handle 12 people while the completely kitted-out ballroom can cater for a party of up to 200. With audio-visual equipment and flexible seating arrangements Banyan Tree can handle every social event.

So we’ve pretty much established that a stay at Banyan Tree Samui has both the location and resort covered; all that’s left is the company. Unfortunately Kenwood can’t quite guarantee that but our terrific offers to Banyan Tree Samui cover just about everything else.

These offers include: Stay seven nights, pay for five, valid for travel between April 1 – December 21, 2013 and January 11 – March 31, 2014.  Call our wonderful sales team on 020 7749 9220 or book your dream holiday online now.
