I have travelled to many hotels over the years but none have ever felt like a home in the way that Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru has. We only stayed here for a week and we could have easily stayed longer. Everything about this place is perfect - the island, the villas, the restaurant, the activities on offer and above all else...

We had a 6 days holiday for our 2nd visit to Maldives. We spent 3 days in Angsana Ihuru and 3 days in Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru. These two islands are close to Male which only takes 25 minutes by speed boat. The transportation is much easier than those island which requires water plane. Before booking the room in Banyan tree...

We stayed at Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru from March 9th-15th in a Beachvilla. Welcome at the Airport was great - so was the transfer by boat without waiting time to the Island.

Despite a couple of days of unseasonal weather Vabbinfaru is a little gem with a beautiful house reef that never fails to delight. The staff are exceptional and create the perfect environment ensuring understated and unobtrusive attentiveness.

Resort is only 20 minutes boat ride from airport. Friendly welcome at the airport and resort jetty, smooth and easy check-in. Room is comfortable with adjustable aircon and fan. Every room comes with a pool and hot jet pool. Snorkeling is fantastic as house reef is only 20m from land. Can also enjoy snorkeling at Angsana Ihuru (just opposite Vabbinfaru)...
