It is so difficult to decide which resort to choose in Maldives - all of them look so nice on the pictures and in the reviews... It was our 3rd Maldives Christmas/New Year trip and it was the best decision to visit Banyan this time. This resort is absolutely amazing and guarantees great holiday. Service, food, villas, coral reef, diving,...

We had a wonderful holiday in December 2016 at the Banyan tree , Maldives. Thanks to Mr Peri , the wonderful GM of Banyan tree everything was meticulously planned for our stay at the resort.

Had a very good time there. Especially snorkelling. The reef is fantastic and its just around the hotel. Many fish, turtles and reef sharks. Hassan had assisted with snorkelling and made amazing video and pictures of the event.

25 minutes with the boat from the airport you will reach very little island - you can walk around it in 10 minutes. Staff is nice and on the top. Service is good also, just food selection could be bigger and more impressive. They do have good wifi:) villas are small, nice. Didn't feel privacy because you see your neighbors...
