Great room lovely hotel but the food just wasn't up to snuff. Have stayed at the Banyan Tree in the Riviera Maya and expected that level of service/hospitatality. Went to the Four Seasons Maldives after and that blew our minds. That's the way to go. Spa is lovely. They try but the food/all inclusive angle/having to eat when they say... More

The Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru resort and hotel in the Maldives goes way beyond the traveller's expectations. My husband and I stayed here for one week. Not only was the island of exquisite beauty, but also every aspect of the resort, from the beautifully designed villas to the delightfully tasting food and dining, all was utterly sublime. When we had to... More

1. STEALING MY PERSONAL INFORMATION:Without any prior authorization from me and without my awareness, the hotel took my credit card information (the card I used to pay my SPA fee purchase from the resort gallery during my stay)and made pre-authorization on this card to use as payment for the accommodation fee. 2. Mistakenly overcharged me for almost 1200 USD, though... More

Our stay at Banyan Tree was perfect. Wonderful experience that manages to exceed our expectations. Staff were very friendly and always ready to cater our needs. Food was delicious with many choices. The room with the jacuzzi and pool was breath taking. . Will definitely come back here for a second trip.

The time at the Bayan Tree was magical, from the moment we were met at the airport to our sendoff 5 days later. The villa is gorgeous and perfectly situated on the beach with two or three seating areas and lounges, a bath with and indoor and also outdoor shower. The service is superb. Dina, Wolfgang, Abdullah and Noor took... More

We stayed at Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru on honeymoon and everything was perfect: the attention for every detail, the kindness of the personnel, the delicious food and the amazing location. Without doubts the best place we have been since we started travelling around the world. Long to be back there again

No Gym or Hotel Swimming Pool, I wasn't looking for one, No choice of restaurants given it is a Banyan Tree Hotel. you only had the Main restaurant which alternates with Open-Door-Under-Tree-Canopy Buffet style area. They are very supportive of... More
