At Brides we love nothing more than a spot of pampering and a spa holiday is just the thing to help alleviate life's little stresses.


We were thrilled to hear about the latest offering from Banyan Tree Spa Sanctuary: Nestled near the heavenly shores of Phuket's Bang Tao Bay (one of the best beaches in Phuket), the boutique pool villa resort has launched three unique spa and wellness packages aimed to rejuvenate and invigorate.

Whether you are looking for a super-chilled honeymoon or a little pre-wedding pampering to help beat the wedding prep stresses, Banyan Tree could just be the answer. The spa is multi-award winning; recently adding 'Best Spa in the World' (as voted by Daily Telegraph Ultra Travel magazine readers) to its long list of accolades.


Each spa package is customised for differing levels of indulgence: Retreat For The Senses offers a more holistic approach and includes one 60-minute massage per person daily, lunch and dinner along with an in-depth Ayurvedic consultation - pure bliss. The Spa Discovery and Spa Ultimate are more affordable packages, but still include a delightful massage plus morning yoga at the Orchid Garden and Thai High Tea.

If all the relaxation leaves you craving a little adventure and dancing, then venture out to the nearby Xana Beach Club in the evening (owned by Banyan Tree) where you can enjoy gorgeous cocktails on the beach and listen to the coolest DJ's.


Prices start from £2,429 per person for six nights at Banyan Tree Spa Sanctuary on a daily breakfast basis.  Price also includes return international flights with Eva Air from London Heathrow to Phuket and unlimited 60 minute massages per person daily.    Dates for travel 1-26 October 2012.   To book call Kuoni on 01306 747 008 and quote reference N16205.
