We had a wonderful stay at the Banyan Tree Sanctuary. If you read the other reviews and the Sanctuary's own description, you will get a very good idea of the place and whether it is appropriate for you. The Sanctuary is located at the end of a one mile, one lane road built in to a hillside overlooking the shore; at the beginning the street appears suburban; by the end it appears to be in a tropical forest. There are a small number of rooms and none of what you would expect in a resort; so if you're coming for that kind of stay you won't find what you're looking for. Actually, that's not quite true--there is a lovely pool, a jacuzzi, and a sauna--but no room service, bar, or gift shop. Most of the time we had common areas to ourselves since the number of guests is small. The Sanctuary it is set up for yoga, meditation, and a small number of visitors; it is a small working farm for the partners who run/manage it. For guests, there is a full kitchen where you can make your own coffee/breakfast/meals. Coffee, tea, and some fresh fruits are provided, but anything else you bring in (vegan-friendly food only). Words like "tranquil" and "serene" recur in the reviews for a reason--it is quiet (well, there are almost always birds chirping), out of the way, and very relaxed. Sunrises and sunsets were particularly lovely. If that sort of stay sounds good to you, I would very highly recommend Banyan Tree Sanctuary. We were very sad to leave.

Banyan Tree Sanctuary is a very unique place to stay. If you want to get away from all the resorts and get a taste of nature & hawaiian culture then this is a place for you. As soon as I arrived I was amazed at how serene and peaceful the grounds were. The pool was kept nice, along with the kitchen and their sacred temple. A couple things I noticed were if you arrive at night or early morning before the sun rises, Banyan can get a little eerie. The place doesn’t have much light besides in the kitchen and where you park your car so I had to use my flash to see where I was going. Also, after my first day, the jacuzzi was covered so it made me not wanting to bother with getting inside it unfortunately. Regardless, Banyan is as spiritual as you make it. You can meditate or do your own yoga in the sacred temple as there’s no guided sessions. Same with the massages, I had no idea where that would be taking place. Although, they do provide you with everything you need in terms of towels, ocean gear, and other amenities. All in all, I believe you don’t find Banyan but Banyan finds you. So if you’re not into a real peaceful quiet getaway then I’d suggest going to a regular hotel. You will discover yourself and get peace of mind here, guaranteed.

Peaceful and unique
Owners and staff were great and so friendly and kind. If you are looking for a peaceful, quiet, quaint and unique place that isn’t your usual large chain hotel experience, I definitely recommend Banyan.
