Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts creates specially-designed signature delicacies to celebrate 20th Anniversary

Category: Corporate Announcements

Singapore, April 2014- In celebration of its 20th anniversary this year, a special signature menu will be showcased during the year across the worldwide portfolio of Banyan Tree and Angsana Hotels & Resorts.  True to the ideals of providing a “Sanctuary for the Senses”, the culinary delicacies will be filled with sensory delights, unique to Banyan Tree, offering a perfect way to celebrate this milestone year.  The 20th Anniversary Menu, featuring a selection of Thai delicacies and an exotic cocktail will be available to guests at a selection of Banyan Tree and Angsana properties during 2014*.

According to Executive Chef, Renu Homsombat at Banyan Tree’s signature Saffron restaurant, “The menu is a celebration of the use of fresh, local ingredients and personal culinary touches that have defined Banyan Tree through the years; the cuisine interprets traditional Thai flavours with an innovative approach. Saffron’s own creations emphasize the preservation of tastes inspired by the customs and cultures of Thailand, through the use of indigenous herbs and spices.”


20th Anniversary Signature Cocktail – Saffron Surprise

Banyan Tree mixologists have created “Saffron Sunrise” as an aperitif to the celebratory menu.  Capturing the essence and exotic magic of the country where the first Banyan Tree opened, quintessential Thai ingredients such as red chilli, lime and ginger blend delicately with smooth vodka and club soda while a hint of Malibu rum provides a tropical infusion of coconut flavor. This refreshing cocktail conveys Banyan Tree’s Asian heritage with an aura of herbs and a hint of spice.


20th Anniversary Signature Thai Tapas

Small taster plates of delectable goodies start the meal on a lively and inspiring note. For the 20th Anniversary Menu, Chef Renu has created two exotic tapas dishes, one from the sea and one
from the land.  Grilled minced curried shrimp is served with Thai herbs and lemongrass, while a grilled beef roll is prepared with fresh vegetables and herbs and a spicy chili sauce.


20th Anniversary Signature Appetizers

Three specially crafted appetizers provide a taste of the exotic with options to please every palate. Guests can choose from crispy flaked sea bass served with green mango, rice noodle roll and a tamarind dressing; satay imbued with Indonesian spices; or a crispy rice noodle-wrapped prawn alongside fried pepper leaf and sweet mango chili sauce.


20th Anniversary Signature Main Course

Braised beef was a natural choice for the signature main course as few dishes are more elegant or celebratory than this dish, a firm favourite of Banyan Tree guests.  Braised Beef in Massaman Curry Sauce is a compilation of Thai flavors combined in one meal, representative of the rhythms of Thai cooking.  Spicy, yet sweet and savory, the coconut-infused Massaman curry sauce has been named by CNN-Go as the “king of curries, and perhaps the king of all foods.”

Banyan Tree’s 20th Anniversary is a year-long celebration to commemorate the meteoric growth of the hotel group, from its flagship resort in Phuket to one of the world’s leading resort and spa brands.  Its rich Asian heritage, renowned hospitality and inspiring, exceptional experiences have led to the creation of more than 30 unique jewel-like retreats across the world.   

*The 20th Anniversary signature cocktail and dishes will be available at select Banyan Tree and Angsana hotels and resorts at certain times during 2014.
