Award-winning Banyan Tree Phuket has launched its new Deluxe Two Bedroom Pool Villas, a long-awaited category of its signature villas geared towards providing an escape for the family. Available from 1 March 2010, the cluster of 22 Deluxe Two Bedroom Pool Villas will provide an ideal setting for quality bonding and relaxation for grandparents, parents, and children. In tandem with the new villa categories, a new programme dubbed Banyan Tree Rangers has been introduced for children aged five to ten, to immerse them in the five senses of the natural world.
Starting 1 March 2010, guests can book the Family Occasions summer package, where for every three consecutive nights’ of stay, the cost of menu lunches and dinners for guests’ children under 12 years old will be waived, while the adults enjoy a US$100 food credit per villa per night. Valid for stays from 15 April to 31 October 2010, accommodation will be in the new Deluxe Two-Bedroom Pool Villa, starting from THB 29,500+++ (approximately US$894+++) per night for up to six people, inclusive daily breakfast. For reservations, call Banyan Tree Phuket at +66 76 372 400 or the Singapore reservations office at +65 6849 5800, or visit banyantree.com for online booking.
Mr. Francois Huet, General Manager of Banyan Tree Phuket as well as a Vice President with the Banyan Tree Group, welcomes the trend of soft family adventures. Mr. Huet explains, “Couples who have enjoyed various types of holidays prior to starting their families have more options than ever to continue their adventures as their children grow up. Shared experiences become more enriching as families choose discerning, activity-enriched destinations such as Banyan Tree Phuket. It’s a win-win situation as parents do not have to sacrifice their comfort and style for kid-friendly facilities, and children of all ages do not have to sacrifice their play time and exploration in an adult-friendly environment.”
Deluxe Two Bedroom Pool Villas
The Deluxe Two-Bedroom Pool Villa provides the family travel market with an unparalleled product that extends over an area of 370sqm. Each of the spacious 22 villas feature a master bedroom, a twin bedroom, a fully equipped kitchen, a games room as well as dining area and lounge. It is complemented by a large private outdoor pool measuring 3.5 by 9 metres with jet pool, and an outdoor sala providing a relaxing overview of the villa.
Each villa comfortably accommodates four adults, and can hold up to six people in total, while allowing different activities to take place at the same time – whether swimming, dining, sunbathing, TV surfing, and resting. A homely touch is found in the well-appointed kitchen and dining area, where families may gather to bond over a private meal that they have prepared themselves, or which has been delivered and beautifully arranged for their enjoyment by the resort’s discreet service team.
Outside of the villa, children will discover new hobbies at the Turtle Club, which offers outdoor activities that do not box kids into a playroom. Activities include kite making, sand sculpture, batik painting, and aquacise, which bring out the best cultural and local items of interest. For adults, facilities such as the holistic Banyan Tree Spa, and romantic options such as the Intimate Moments drawn bath or Destination Dining exclusively for two, allow them to truly rejuvenate on holiday, and return home without needing yet another break to recover from a family holiday.
Banyan Tree Rangers for little ones
In a specially timed launch, Banyan Tree Phuket’s recreation team has introduced the Banyan Tree Rangers programme specially aimed at children below 10 years of age. To cater to this age group’s curiosity, energy and willingness to learn, the daily programme revolves around the stimulation of the five senses – sight, sound, touch, smell and taste – to explore and appreciate the natural environment. In Sight, children learn through games and images how different animals see the world around them. They also learn about birds and animals native to Phuket, and where to find them. Imagination is key in Touch, where the blindfolded kids handle a range of different animals to get to know them better through texture and feel. Another highlight is Taste, where herbs, spices and natural products are introduced via tasting, for a delightfully surprising adventure into the world of plants that are used in our food.
