Guests can enjoy a dining experience that showcases the best of local ingredients and a variety of cuisines. Those looking for a tropical escape can visit the newly opened flagship Angsana Laguna Phuket where the resort’s Bodega & Grill serves premium char-grilled steaks, roasted fish and seafood from a special wood-fired oven. Bodega’s generous steaks are available in portions of up to 1.2 kilogrammes. Presented on large cast iron skillets resting on wooden platters, they can be enjoyed individually or family style. Bodega also specialises in authentic homemade pastas, risottos and paellas. For those preferring an urban getaway, Banyan Tree Macau’s signature restaurant Belon which is designed to evoke an aquatic environment presents classic European grill items with premium seafood prepared with an Asian twist. Belon’s menu features smoked tuna, sous vide pigeon and other delicacies.
Guests may also explore the award-winning spas at Banyan Tree and Angsana which are renowned for their treatments that fuse traditional Asian therapies with a holistic focus on spiritual, mental and physical harmony. Signature innovations include the Tropical Rainmist and Royal Banyan treatments at Banyan Tree Spa and Angsana Spa’s Duet treatment and Angsana Massage.
Tropical Rainmist features an indulging combination of a cascading rain shower and steam bath as a prelude to the body treatment while Royal Banyan highlights East-meets-West massage techniques using a homemade herbal pouch dipped in warm sesame oil. Duet is a pampering couple’s treat with body polish, massage and facial and the well-loved Angsana Massage works on key pressure points to strengthen the inner ‘qi’ or energy.
Exploring the Destination
Guests can immerse themselves in the destination on a deeper level with a bespoke tour or activity. For example, those staying at Banyan Tree Phuket may embark on a tuk tuk (motorised rickshaw) to tour Thai temple Wat Phra Nang Sang, the oldest temple on the island built more than 500 years ago. Points of interest include murals of the Lord Buddha’s life, pictures of important historical events, numerous tin Buddha statues, Chinese deities/gods and goddesses, statues of heroines Lady Chan and Lady Mook, a large reclining Buddha and a 50 year old mummy of a former monk of the temple.
Guests at Angsana Balaclava will discover the picturesque seaside village of Grand Baie, a 15 minutes drive from the resort, to soak in the charm of quaint sailing boats swaying on the ocean’s turquoise waters. Colourful pareos and cashmere pashmina, intricate local jewellery and ship models make for the perfect souvenirs. Cosy restaurants and lively bars complete a postcard perfect day in Grand Baie. A plethora of other activities await at resorts around the globe.
