We had our minds set to privately renew our vows on our 20th Wedding Anniversary in Maldives. The dilemma is which resort to book especially that we haven't been there. Thanks to a couple of friends who recommended the Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru. We could not have picked a better place - stunning, idyllic, shimmering white sand, graceful palm trees, turquoise... More

This place is utterly gorgeous. The island and reef around it are breathtaking. The rooms are fantastic and equipped with a pool / jacuzzi / outdoor shower and it's impeccably designed. The food is delicious and most importantly the staff are incredibly friendly and attentive. It's definitely an expensive getaway, but after spending 4 days there, I must say it... More

Absolutely fantastic. Wonderful place, lovely staff who tended to our every need. Definitely going back to paradise. Snorkelling is awesome from beginner to advanced. The reefs are beautifully preserved.

5+++ an amazing holiday It was our first visit to Maldives.

Love the 7 nights trip on Vabbinfaru. Small island but lovely white beach and exetremely well protected coral for snorkling. Free transfering boat to Ihuru every two hours. Coral in Ihuru is much closer to the beach. But room is much better in Vabbinfaru, especially for family with kid. My son love the private swimming pool and jacuzzi. I love... More

The overall environment created around Banyan Tree is serene and amazing. The waters around the island are crystal clear and the reefs have been well conserved. The staff are very professional and friendly and the atmosphere created around villas is well worth the money.
