Here, at the exclusive Banyan Tree Maldives Vabbinfaru, your Robinson Crusoe fantasy is fulfilled with a luxurious twist.

Reviews for Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru
We spend 10 days in Banyan Tree in the middle of January and we love the place! The hotel is nicely calm, spacious and offers a lot of privacy. The beach is beautiful, the staff is amazing, and every detail is taken care of to make your stay perfect. There is a nice reef surrounding the hotel with many turtles, reef sharks and colourful fishes. If you like to enjoy the best of Maldives, this is the place to go!

Every second at Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru is spectacular. From the moment you hop off the boat, you are lured into the island with the magical lights and foliage at the end of a 100 meter long jetty. Once you reach the reception, you are treated with a welcome drink and snack. Just a little taste of Maldives to start your get away! There are 48 villas that circle the island. Every villa has direct access to the beach, with their own private pool with hot tub, patio, and sunbeds. Everything you want and need is right here. If you want to catch up on your novels, you may read on your very own sunbed, or reserve a private cabana, or kick back on the extendable lounge chairs on the back jetty. If you want a bit of exhilaration the marine lab has endless choices. I recommend snorkelling around the island, in the morning and afternoon, snorkelling with the manta rays, and the dolphin cruise. Also at 5pm every day stingrays and special guests visit the island for snack time. An associate from the marine lab shares the story of the island's stingrays and what makes them special! Once the stingray have finished their snack, head over to the bar for happy hour drinks. If you are lucky there might be live music that day. After that, there is either a set dinner or buffet BBQ. The Maldivian curry and fish is a must try. Also their in house baker makes the best chocolate cakes. After dinner, take a stroll down the jetty to see the reef sharks feed and don't forget to look up at the stars and make a wish! The best part of the island is the team that runs it! They are beyond welcoming, making you feel like you are part of their extended family. Its not surprising why so many other guests you meet visit year after year. A big thank you to the Vabbinfaru team for making my stay unforgettable! Special thanks to Riyaz, Faris, Andrew, Iris, Adam, Rajesh, Ali, Gabby, and Axel =D See you soon!
We have been for 1 week at the island. From Male 20 minutes with the speed boat. This place is ideal for relaxing. 10 minutes you need to get around the island. The villas are perfect; with pool and jacuzzi. The staff is super friendly without exception. Also the GM is taking care for the guests. The food is excellent. Large breakfast. Each day another dinner menu! Several kinds of water sports are offered. Also massages. We can recommend the hotel warmly.

Banyan Tree made my stay incomparable. Their level of assistance and guest satisfaction went beyond what was expected. The resort is peaceful and relaxed and the bed utterly divine. We felt completely restored

We were looking for escaping the winter and Maldives was a destination of choice... We really appreciated our stay at the Banyan Tree. The island is just big enough to let you do everything by foot (bare foot) in less than 5 minutes. Even though the hotel isn't the newest in the region, rooms are great with all the amenities you need. This place is snorkelling paradise: The amazing diversity of coral and fishes triggered the construction of Marine Laboratory where you can get teaching from the researchers and other advice. The service is great, everybody is dedicated to make your stay perfect. The only space of improvement could be the food: The snacks, salads etc are good however the food offered at night for the half board option is not so great, except the buffets that were served twice during our stay. You could expect more raw fish dishes (ceviches, sashimis, etc) more grilled fishes and less fried food... Nevertheless we had a great vacation and would recommend this place to anybody wanting to rest, dive and relax by the sea.
