A great place for snorkeling. My child enjoyed it very much. Spa massagists are wonderful. Sunset side villa is much better than the sunrise side. I would suggest to book the villas on the west side of the island. Waiters in the restaurant and bar need more smile on their faces. Kid menu need to be more attractive to kids.

Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru is the first-rate not only in environment, but also in warm and thoughtful service, especially the service personnel's professional quality and service consciousness is very satisfactory. Annie gave all of us a professional, enthusiastic, attentive service, and let us spend a wonderful holiday. Thanks Annie!
