Dear Valued Guest,

We are creating new over-the-water villas and beachfront suites, and renovating Sands Beach Club to include two expanded oceanfront pools, an all-day-dining indoor and outdoor restaurant, a Raw Bar, a new Kid's Club with a pool and ocean-view Spa facilities.

Your experience will not be affected as all facilities such as the Banyan Tree Spa, Reflections Pool and our celebrated restaurants and bars including Saffron, The Tomahawk Den, Cello and HAAB’ continue to operate normally. The new facilities will be completed and opened on December 2020.

To add to the exciting happenings, we have a new and chic Beach Club –The Shack- that recently opened its doors, featuring two oceanfront pools and a barefoot fresh-seafood restaurant right on the beach.

We look forward to these exciting additions to our resort. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions.
