We stayed in Villa 44 full board. The amenities were top notch and the knowledgeable staff made a special effort to accommodate any requests e.g. a drink on the jetty before it was booked for dinner, where and when the sunset starts, where the best reef and snorkelling times are. Just a 25 min boat ride from the airport. The... More

We stayed in Phuket and Bangkok before and had great experience. But Banyan Tree in Mladives is totally not the Banyan Tree standard as we stayed before. Staffs are all very polite, but service is not up to standard. The turn down service is just cleaning up our villa. We had not get any sovenir as other clients comments in... More

From the minute we were greeted and led to our speedboat at the airport in Male, to arriving to a welcome party of the Hotel GM, traditional drummers, and other staff on the small jetty, throughout our stay, and our tearful goodbye waving to the staff that we became friends with as they waved at our departing speedboat...this was the...

Very nice and private villa. The staff is very friendly! The food options are limited as there is one restaurant only. And the spa is ok compared to other 5 star resorts. But overall it's a great place!

One of the earlier resorts in the Maldives it is now starting to look and feel its age. Quite close to the ugly capital, Male is still just visible from the southern end of the island day and night - not really the view one wants for an idyllic island escape. However, the welcome at the southern pier was very... More

We stayed at the Banyan Tree for 3 nights for my wife's 40th birthday and it didn't disappoint. She described it as the best trip she's ever had.
