My family had a great time, but we find the place expensive. The ferry ride, the food, the sports activities cost quite a bit of money.
The ferry ride took about 1hr 45 mins from Singapore; not 75 mins as advertised on the ferry service website. Maybe 75 mins is possible with the bigger catamaran, but the website should be more upfront with this information.
My husband and I spent a 2D 1N in Banyan Tree and it was truly an excellent choice of place to stay. We were greeted by warm and friendly staff at the reception. Services was also prompt when we requested for our jacuzzi to be cleaned. We were at the restaurant an hour earlier than the time set for lunch but seeing us waiting in the restaurant, they took our orders and serve us our food. We really felt well taken care of during our short stay. Highly recommended!
