Wonderful treatment, excellent staff in perfect surrounding! A real escape in times of difficult corona regulations... the Banyan Tree staff make ones time on Vabbinfaru so relaxing, that one forgets the Corona chaos. The safety regulations are well designed but not hampering the relaxing feeling. The food and accommodation is paradise! Thank you for the perfect escape!

Very nice small island with all pool villas. The spa retreat villa was very nice and relaxing with a daily spa massage included in the price. Not only that but the villa had 2 Jacuzzis and 2 outdoor showers and one inside the outdoor bathroom! It was very serene and comfortable. In villa dining and bar AL a care were good, but I wish I had planned ahead and ordered the in villa grill menu ahead of arrival since we had to stay in our villa until our repeat covid test results were back. The spa massages were excellent and very authentic Thai massage performed by Thai masseusses. The dining was excellent and we saw many colorful fish and a few larger stingrays and reef sharks. They didn't bother is at all though. The nightly stingray feed was interesting to see the large stingrays in one spot. Out by the end of the jetty we saw 1.5-2 m sharks. Overall this small island resort was a perfect get away, and only 25 minutes by speedboat to the Male airport!!
