Banyan Tree is renowned for its far-flung spa resorts which tap into local culture. Since 1994, the brand’s ethos has been to not only offer the ultimate holistic getaway to its guests, but to also empower local communities and their trades – in exotic destinations where its retreats are found.
In addition to creating retreats with a sense of place, the brand also has a botanical beauty range, Banyan Tree Essentials, which, it says, celebrates “origin and voice”. Inspired by the heritage of traditional Asian remedies and the rich narrative of the locales they’re inspired by, they are crafted with natural herbs and spices, thus blending the best of nature with the romance of travel.
