My husband and I stayed at this resort for 4 days. It was the perfect place for our short getaway. The resort staff were welcoming and attentive and made us feel like we've been there for longer than a few days. We loved the design of the beach villas - private, dreamy beach and ocean view right from the four...

Very good weather and location, private beach with nice view, hotel service was good. Food taste can be improved. This season is quite good in Maldives, temperature and humidity level is just right. And it's also the start of the dry season. Overall nice stay!

This is a chilled luxury beach escape. From the moment you meet the Banyan Tree representative at the airport to the time they wave you goodbye you are treated to excellent service delivered in a friendly relaxed atmosphere. Our favourite part of the holiday was being bare foot for the duration of our stay. It immediately allows you to relax....
