Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Banyan Tree Sanctuary is a very unique place to stay. If you want to get away from all the resorts and get a taste of nature & hawaiian culture then this is a place for you. As soon as I arrived I was amazed at how serene and peaceful the grounds were. The pool was kept nice, along with the kitchen and their sacred temple. A couple things I noticed were if you arrive at night or early morning before the sun rises, Banyan can get a little eerie. The place doesn’t have much light besides in the kitchen and where you park your car so I had to use my flash to see where I was going. Also, after my first day, the jacuzzi was covered so it made me not wanting to bother with getting inside it unfortunately. Regardless, Banyan is as spiritual as you make it. You can meditate or do your own yoga in the sacred temple as there’s no guided sessions. Same with the massages, I had no idea where that would be taking place. Although, they do provide you with everything you need in terms of towels, ocean gear, and other amenities. All in all, I believe you don’t find Banyan but Banyan finds you. So if you’re not into a real peaceful quiet getaway then I’d suggest going to a regular hotel. You will discover yourself and get peace of mind here, guaranteed.
