Along with the rest of Phuket, Banyan Tree Phuket will be celebrating the city’s world-renowned Vegetarian Festival this October. With the festival taking place from 20-28 October, the resort provides unique opportunities to experience one of Phuket’s most cherished religious customs.

Meant to cleanse the spirit through a process of making merit with the nine emperor gods, devotees spend nine days observing a strict vegetarian or vegan diet each year on the ninth lunar month of the Chinese calendar. During this festival period, vivid and memorable displays of devotion are performed at Chinese shrines across the mesmeric island.

From 18-30 October, Banyan Tree Phuket will be offering a delectable Vegetarian Set Menu in honour of this truly inimitable festival. Guests can indulge in the finest Vegetarian Festival Set Menu (1,600 THB for Dinner only) comprising of dishes made with the freshest ingredients at the resort’s signature Thai restaurant, Saffron.

Guests will not only get to enjoy the gustatory delights of some of the finest meatless meals in the world, but also get close to the festivities taking place across the island with a guided Vegetarian Festival Tour.

For those looking to immerse themselves in the local experience, the resort has created a one-of-a kind package (2,700 THB per person) inclusive of a 1-hour long cultural experience tour certified by Laguna Tour guide, a complimentary yoga session, and a commemorative white Banyan Tree t-shirt. Guests can also add on the Vegetarian Set Menu meal at Saffron for 900 THB.

For guests looking to experience complete rejuvenation during this festival of renewal, Banyan Tree Phuket’s Spa Sanctuary provides the ideal location. Each of these secluded villa rooms have direct lagoon access, a private swimming pool, and include unlimited in-villa massages from Banyan Tree’s incomparable wellness specialists.

Banyan Tree Phuket’s commitment to excellence ensures a hospitality experience like no other. With an unwavering dedication to quality, paired with the resort’s serene location beside its private lagoon and golf course, it is no wonder Banyan Tree Phuket remains one of the most highly regarded resorts in Southeast Asia.
