Honestly, having been lucky enough to stay in some amazing resorts, the people in Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru transcend the resort itself and give you something far beyond a normal holiday type experience, I'm not sure what it is exactly about the that island and the people on it but it is a truly special experience. I understand why people keep on coming back again and again. Adam for me was a sheer delight. Every meal every day, always smiling and just the nicest guy you could ever meet. The amazing chefs, Buswarup and Daz even coming out to speak to me everyday and making me special dishes as I'm a vegan, I simply have not got that level of service anywhere else, wow! Special mention to Hood as well, thanks to his care and patients and expertise he managed to escort my partner onto the house reef and help her to conquer her fear of the sea and deep water. To give you context I have not managed to do that in 7 years! Adam, Hood, Sujau, Daz, Buswarup, budyy and the GM Kan. Absolutely outstanding people and some of the best and most dedicated we have ever experienced in any hotel. A credit to Banyan Tree. All the staff were amazing. If you are looking for an easily reachable small island paradise with staff that treat you more like family than guests have no hesitation.

Hotel's Favorite
Well where to start…… We came to the island for our honeymoon full of expectations and for not one second did it disappoint! The GM and staff made us feel like family and royalty at the same time and that is not easy to do. The island is small and very beautiful, the villas are lovely but could do with a little TLC but this is being very picky. Everyday the rooms were serviced and to an impeccable standard. In the room was everything you could need and our garden was perfect and straight onto the sea. On the first night we met so many lovely staff. The GM really leads from the front and all staff made us feel very special and nothing was too much trouble. I have seen a few reviews saying that food was nice but a bit repetitive, to be honest I agree! Eating giant prawns, fresh fish, lamb chops, local curries and much more everyday was repetitive but I struggled by 😂. However, our chef Biswarup asked everyday if we wanted to have anything else and arranged a curry night (best butter chicken and biriani ever)! And a steak night that was quite possibly the best steak I have had. All the servers were very attentive and Adam made a huge effort everyday to make it special. I can not fault the service for a second. We took a spa sanctuary villa with massages everyday. Most days we had Miley and Melisa and they are two of the sweetest people ever and brilliant at what they do. One day the GM Kan and dive instructor Tholal had a dive with us one day it was amazing!! So stunning and we knew we were in safe hands. So to conclude. This is everything you would hope it to be, beautiful, very 5 star, great food, great staff and a place to create memories. The final wave goodbye when many of the staff waved us away from the jetty was a hard one and we hope to see you all again one day. Thank you from my wife and I for the best honeymoon EVER!!!

Our stay at Vabbinfaru was wonderful, the island is beautiful and our holiday was made very special by the staff. In particular we would like to thank Najaah who took great care of our villa (and multiple times a day!), Ziyad who every day (and night!) welcomed us with a smile at the restaurant and Rajeesh/ Sai who created amazing breakfast moments. A big thank you also to the SPA team which is absolutely first class!

We had a lovely stay in the Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru Ressort just the last 6 days. Great place, super facilities, great food - unbelievable butter chicken - and superfriendly staff. The villa was great as well and had a nice beach front access, directly intoniert sea for snorkelling and stuff. We also have hired a day cruise with the catamaran, with guided snorkelling and saw sea turtles, sharks, dolphins and thousands of super coloured fish. The lunch on the bot was superb as well. Thoroughly recommend this place Frank & Nicole

공항 섬에서 스피드보트로 약 2~30분 걸립니다. 근처 앙사나 이후루와 자매 결연이 되어있어서 반얀트리 바빈파루 섬에서 보트를 타고 5분도 안 걸려 앙사나 이후루로 갈 수 있습니다. 또한 40여개 독채로 소규모 숙소입니다. 모든 직원들이 친절하고 손님을 먼저 기억하고 신경 써주는 모습이 인상적입니다. 친절함에 우열을 가릴 수 없지만, 특히 Shuaib, Rameez, Amin, Asty와 같이 마사지해주신 분이 기억에 남습니다. 마사지 역시 신경을 많이 써준다는 느낌을 받습니다. 마사지를 받기 전 태블릿으로 손님의 몸 상태를 상세히 물어보고, 원하는 마사지 유형을 찾을 수 있게 설명해줍니다. 손님이 잊은 건 없는지 체크해주고(대한민국의 경우 입국 전 큐코드), 잃어버린 물건이 있다면 신경 써서 되찾아줍니다. 정 있는(오지랖은 없는) 작은 마을 같은 느낌입니다. It takes 2~30 minutes from Male airport island. You can go Angsana Ihuru, which is sister-associated with Banyan Tree, and it takes less than 5 minutes. Also it is small island with about 40 private houses. That all staffs are kind, and do remember guests first, and take good care of them is quite impressive. All staffs are so kind, but I especially remember Shuaib, Rameez, Amin, Asty and the one who did massage with Asty. Also, massage staffs gave me excellent care. Before given massage, you would be asked about your body condition, and explained the types of massage you want. Staffs would check the things you might forget(in case of Korea, it would be Q-code), and find the things you might lose. I felt the Banyan Tree like a small village full of kind villagers. I think you will love Banayan Tree!

Thank you for this wonderful vacation! We enjoyed every minute. We first stayed at Angsana Ihuru for 6 nights and then again at Banyan Tree for 3. Both were wonderful, here are details: Banyan Tree: Beautiful island and gorgeous resort! The villas directly on the beach are comfortably furnished; have a coffee maker, high quality bathroom furnishings, open bathroom with mini and whirlpool incl outdoor shower and on the beach normal sunbeds and a small covered veranda with extra sunbeds. In addition, there are 2 swimming mats for each house, with which we had a lot of fun in the sea. The food was excellent and left nothing to be desired - for breakfast everything about fresh fruit, freshly squeezed juices, egg dishes prepared on request and so much more. At lunchtime à la carte with a large selection of delicious dishes and additional fresh barbecue and in the evening also very tasty. We were happy as could be. In the spa we were also very satisfied and enjoyed the treatment; only in the bar you often had to plan for longer waiting times. Maybe they could assign a little more staff here ? For us, snorkeling was especially important and we liked it very much. The reef is a bit further away than on the neighboring island, which means it is a bit more strenuous to get there first, but it goes well and you are not dependent on a boat, but can go directly from the room into the sea. We saw beautiful colorful corals, pufferfish, reef sharks, etc. and swam through real schools of fish. Wonderful! The barefoot concept has convinced us despite initial skepticism fully and has only made the vacation perfect! The friendliness of the people on the island was unbelievable and the picture that stuck in our minds is the farewell wave at the end of our vacation - unfortunately we were so overwhelmed that we forgot to take a picture of it. But it was sooo beautiful!

My firs trip to Maldives and happened to be solo traveler :) I had spent 2 nights in this paradise.I stayed in Ocean View Pool Villa all myself.Beds are soooo comfy I didnt even want to wake up :):) You may think Maldives is for honeymooners, couples, families etc. But I think Banyan Tree is for everyone. You can treat yourself and enjoy nature around you . Plus make some new friends :):)Also you can visit sister resort Angsana Ihuru just 5 min away by boat .There is free transfer 4 times a day from Banyan Tree. This beautiful island has amazing house reef. you can enjoy diving , snorkeling , eating , drinking and all other activities and just post it to your room number in Banyan Tree:):) Special thanks to Gm Mrs.Kan, Jihane, Julian, Hanane, Habeeb and all of the team to make my stay special, unforgetable and absulately lifetime experience!!

The amazing thing about the Banyan Tree is that, if you read the hotel’s description of itself, is that, in our experience, it is all true. Vabbinfaru is a beautiful atoll, only 25 minutes by boat from Male. Tranquil, serene and laidback but not complacent as the staff are very adept at providing everything you need. It is hard to single anybody out but I would like to mention those who we interacted with most. We were greeted by Habeeb and Hannah, the former providing us with help and information whenever needed. Moosa greeted us in the restaurant at every meal, always attentive. Dr Sha and Dr Sopida in the spa provided a great diversion when we dragged ourself away from the pristine beach and waters that surround the atoll. Hood from the Marine Lab proved a very capable and willing guide when we snorkelled at Angsana which will last long in the memory. Our thatched villa was cleaned twice daily inside and out by the ever cheerful Khaleel. Our 6 days at the Banyan Tree were the most relaxing and enjoyable 6 days we have ever had and we must thank the management for creat8ng such a wonderful atmosphere, with exceptional staff. There is nothing that we could f8nd fault with and will certainly be back.
