We stayed as a family group (4 adults and 1 child) in 2 villias for 4nights. Fortunate to have one villa upgraded from Oceanview to Beachfront. Both villas were beutifully presented, with many options of areas to rest-up and enjoy the sunshine and sound of the waves. (We were fortunate with great weather, raining on our arrival day only).

The island is relatively small, so you can easily walk around and explore. There are no water villas, which is a shame, but we selected the ocean facing villa with swimming pool... More

Our stay at Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru was definitely wonderful. This island has gorgeous powdery sand beach and clear sea water. Reef here is well protected making it a snorkelling paradise, even my cousin who is terrified of getting tanned went snorkelling at least twice a day. The stingray and sea turtle feeding and shark watching at night are also great... More
