World's Best Hotel Boutiques

Banyan Tree Gallery, Phuket, Thailand
Banyan Tree Phuket

Items sold at the Banyan Tree Phuket are not only inspired by Thailand but also benefit the country through exclusive partnerships with locals. Hotel merchandisers work with artisans in women's groups and local villages to develop traditional pieces with modern appeal, such as decorative paper fans and handbags stitched with hill tribe embroidery. You can also bring home decorative elements from the hotel, including triangular reclining cushions developed in partnership with women in the village of Yasothon. Some of the selection reaches beyond Thailand, as well: The Phuket store sells home goods, accessories, and souvenirs developed by the chain's other hotels, which support causes of their own. With a product mix including totes made from recycled billboards by hearing-impaired youths in Indonesia and vintage-inspired model boats that support ongoing tsunami relief, Banyan Tree allows guests to spend with a purpose.
