With this agreement, Hotelbeds has secured exclusive offers and privileges for its customers at Banyan Tree Group’s 48 hotels across 22 countries.
Banyan Tree Group operates five award-winning brands: Banyan Tree – an all-villa concept with understated luxury; Angsana – amazing destination playgrounds for families and meeting groups; Cassia – designed with the independent travellers in mind, a niche between hotel and apartments; Dhawa – contemporary casual and design-savvy hotels; and Laguna – featuring the Group’s three integrated destination resorts for dream holiday getaways in Thailand (Phuket), Indonesia (Bintan) and Vietnam (Lang Co).

With this strategic partnership, and in anticipation of the resumption of safe travel, Banyan Tree Group will benefit from expanding its customer reach, while giving Hotelbeds’ customers access to exclusive rates designed to inspire travel and help fuel the industry’s recovery.
