Banyan Tree Spa – One of the Most Established Brands of Singapore

“This is distinctively Singaporean in effort and spirit. It combines Marina Bay Sands’ commitment to honor local companies, with the deep Asian heritage of Banyan Tree. We aim to make Singapore proud by opening the city’s first-ever Banyan Tree Spa at the height of nearly 200 meters in the sky, and welcome Singaporeans to visit this spectacular Spa.”

Marina Bay Sands Interim CEO George Tanasijevich

As Singapore, the former British colony marks its golden Jubilee, 50 years of independence this year; I am more than glad to share MY FAVORITE BRAND; being one of the Most Established Brands of Singapore Banyan Tree Holdings Limited (“Banyan Tree”) founded by the entrepreneurial Singaporean husband and wife team Ho Kwon Ping and Claire Chian.

And, it is only coincident that my wedding was taken place at Bottle Tree, I supposed I have a thing for Trees!

“Banyan Tree is all about creating and delivering unforgettable and memorable guest experiences, and our spas are an integral component of this unique experience.” -Banyan Tree Executive Chairman Ho Kwon Ping

It might be 2 years ago, but it is still my favorite spa experience, globally. I was not at all too concerned about the root of this brand, initially. Although impressionable, but when I search for one, all I wanted was, a luxurious facial spa. Besides, given that my last job designation as an Interior Designer, I must seek to explore! Indeed, I discovered that Banyan Tree, is a Singapore brand, and its phenomenal global success from being just a single resort in Phuket, Thailand,1994. Even then, it was already an Asian’s first luxury spa resort.
