Here are nine things to love about the new Banyan Tree Veya Phuket.

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.

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
