LAUNCHED IN MARCH THIS YEAR, Banyan Tree Veya Phuket is founded on bespoke wellbeing and embodiment therapy principles and built on the luxury chain’s proprietary eight pillars of wellbeing.
The first address for Banyan Tree’s new Veya wellbeing-focused sub-brand, the resort is a place for guests to rediscover themselves through new ways of being well and empowerment.
Here are nine things to love about the new Banyan Tree Veya Phuket.
Banyan Tree Veya Phuket offers a lush enclave within Laguna Phuket, a distinct and tranquil location within Banyan Tree Phuket and a few minutes’ walk from picturesque Bangtao Beach.
Veya guests can access the exclusive Wellbeing Center featuring Thailand’s first White Room for sensory detox and meditative practice and an “Apothecary” for interactive herbal & plant medicine based workshops.
The resort focuses on sound physical and mental health principles for guests — including lessons and therapies they can incorporate into their daily life once they return home.
The journey begins before guests arrive with an online wellbeing assessment. Upon arrival, they meet with expert wellbeing practitioners. After getting to know the guest, a personalized itinerary is created aligned to their individual needs and personal goals.
Customize Your Own Retreat
Every stay includes an evolving roster of purposeful and accessible workshops and activities that lead to improved health, happiness, and optimism. Taught by expert practitioners in each discipline, guests choose the most appealing classes. They can ask for guidance from a team of resident experts and their dedicated wellbeing host or create their own activity journey.
Wellbeing Pool Villas
At Banyan Tree Veya, the wellbeing journey continues even inside your villa. Designed for optimal rest, the one-bedroom pool villas feature organic cotton bedlinen, a choice of pillows, blackout curtains, nightly aromatherapy amenities, sleep lighting, and music.
The wellbeing villas are also equipped to enable practices from yoga to meditation and are outfitted with a wellbeing mini-bar, yoga mats, sound therapy bowls, exercise stretch bands, and more.
Veya Restaurant is the resort’s destination for delightfully healthy food, an integral part of daily wellbeing. Situated at the poolside, guests can delight their senses and elevate their wellbeing with Asian and Mediterranean-influenced choices that feature respectfully harvested local ingredients.
They designed the menu to be zero-waste with no added sugar and low-sodium options for optimum wellbeing. Resident wellbeing culinary concierge can assist guests in curating a tailored menu during their stay to fulfil their dietary needs.
Signature Weightless Therapy
An offering unique to Banyan Tree, the Signature Weightless Therapy is performed in the privacy of your own pool. It combines rehabilitative floatation with Thai body massage techniques and meditation sound therapy to create a unique sensory experience.
The treatment is aimed at alleviating mental stress and improving physical wellbeing. This treatment regenerates both body and mind, relieves muscle tension, and improves functional movement by removing environmental stimuli and harnessing the benefits of the body’s innate connection with water.
Best of Both Worlds
Guests at Banyan Tree Veya Phuket can also take advantage of the facilities and restaurants of its sister property, Banyan Tree Phuket.
Guests can use credit accrued at Veya at both resorts’ restaurants, and healthy menu options are available at Saffron Thai restaurant and international offerings at the Watercourt.
Offering a chance to return to the wellbeing enclave and meet like-minded travelers periodically, Banyan Tree Veya Phuket invites wellbeing enthusiasts to their quarterly Veya Circle Wellbeing Weekend.
Led by a specially curated panel of internationally renowned wellbeing experts and visiting practitioners, Veya Circle aims to empower guests with sustainable wellbeing practices, conscious nourishment learning, and ‘embodiment therapies’ that can be woven into everyday life.
