Leading heathy active lifestyle community in Hua Hin pioneers new ways to stay fit and eat well while enjoying the fresh air and social distancing of the Banyan estate
HUA HIN, THAILAND: Banyan Hua Hin, the healthy active lifestyle community near Thailand’s gulf coast, is a haven of personal wellbeing where Bangkok residents can take an extended break from the city and find new ways to stay fit and healthy.
Nestled between the mountains and the sea, 2.5 hours’ drive from the bustling streets of the Thai capital, this safe, serene and secure gated community is enticing urbanites to leave the pressures of the outside world behind and unwind in their own personal space. Amid an ambience of pure air, panoramic views and birdsong, guests can enjoy energising activities and private dining experiences, with social distancing guaranteed.
Under a new programme created especially for concerned city dwellers who want to get away from the “dark red zone”, couples and families can book a two-bedroom pool villa for only THB 25,000 per month, offering plenty of space, lush lawns and healthy activities. Residents who stay for one week or longer will receive a complimentary workout kit, including a yoga mat, skipping rope, fitness ball and stretching bands, to ensure that they can stay in shape – either indoors or in the fresh air of the enclosed garden.
Banyan Hua Hin understands that during these challenging times many people may prefer to dine in the seclusion of their pool villa. To enable this, a new rolling Seven Day Cycle menu concept has been launched that changes daily and lets diners order from a set menu.
Every day a new selection of appetizers, main courses and desserts are available. A main course is priced at THB 220, and a main course with an appetizer or main course with dessert costs THB 350. Prepared by Banyan’s team of chefs, the meals will be cooked to-order and delivered directly to the door of the pool villa. Guests can then choose to eat in the comfort of their dining room or outside on their poolside terrace, while enjoying a gentle hillside breeze.
Guests are also be able to order groceries from the nearby Villa Market and have them delivered straight to their door – perfect for budding chefs who like to cook at home and make memorable meals.
Each beautiful pool villa comes fully-equipped with modern interiors, a fitted kitchen and modern technology, including high-speed Wi-Fi, so families can stay safe with their loved ones and executives can keep connected with their clients. Social distancing comes naturally at Banyan Village, a self-contained community with 24/7 security and no shared facilities. In addition, every part of the complex is subject to enhanced cleaning and disinfection regulations and strict COVID-19 protocols are being followed on a daily basis.
International health services can be accessed at the Be Well Medical Centre, which is located onsite and has partnerships with Bumrungrad and Samitivej hospitals, while the surrounding countryside provides countless opportunities for outdoor adventures, such as bicycle rides and jungle treks. And of course, golfers can tee-off at the multi-award-winning Banyan Golf Club, the 18-hole championship course that was named as one of “The Rolex World’s Top 1000 Golf Courses” and the “Best Golf Experience in Asia Pacific” for three years in a row.
All these activities and more can be experienced at preferential rates with the Banyan Privilege Club, which offers exclusive benefits with a wealth of prestigious partners, from restaurants, beach clubs and water parks to sports centres, spas, medical centres and more!
