As part of Banyan Tree’s commitment to being a socially responsible business which embraces the environment, we seek to integrate this philosophy in our spas.
Using resources sustainably - By managing our water consumption through use of the most efficient fixtures available, we are able to minimise water wastage during treatments. We constantly try to reduce carbon foot prints by introducing new initiatives within the spas, by reducing the number incense sticks used in our spas, and using ceramic bottles in spa treatment rooms for massage oils.
Ingredients - Our refreshing blend of Asian-inspired treatments emphasises on the use of natural ingredients such as Asian and native herbs, spices, flowers and fruit
Our lines of Banyan Tree Spa and Angsana Spa oil and spa products are created using time-honoured recipes originating from the ancient secrets to beauty and wellness. Working closely with three laboratories in China, India and Thailand, our products are exclusively formulated with all-natural ingredients. Awarded certification by the respective local Ministries of Health, the products undergo stringent tests and harness the goodness of nature to refresh, moisturise and nourish.
Since the founding of Banyan Tree in 1994, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is embedded as a core value in our business strategy which enables us to be agents of social and economic development in developing countries where we have a presence. As a value-based company, Banyan Tree has always defined its overall success not only by its financial performance, but also by its impact on communities and the environment. With this triple bottom line concept of success as a backdrop, one of the company’s CSR missions is to Empower People and Banyan Tree Spa Academy was set up in 2001 with this mission in mind.
