Exceptional service, great board, truly eco-oriented resort for those who don’t want to reach final destination by plane. It’s only 30 minutes by boat from airport. One thing that you should consider at least during July (as far as we stayed in July) - by some strange reasons it’s very popular among families with kids. So be ready to face with myriads of children during meal time and all other kids related hectic hassle. Nonetheless, it’s one of the best choices among boat-reached 5-stars hotels in Maldives. Special thanks to: Dana - for leaving no stone unturned in solving all our request Chef Michael - for extreme hospitality and truly friendly approach Adam - for impeccable service during meal time and Halil - for maintaining superb cleanliness and tidiness at the villa (11). Many thanks for all the stuff, including the SPA team who do everything to make their guests feel happy.

This was our second visit to this heavenly resort in Maldives , while doing booking i had no doubt to book this resort only , last time I visited here for my honeymoon but this time it was a complete family trip , and it didn't failed to amaze us on every aspect. Its such a peaceful resort , away from all the hustle and bustle of city life , so close to nature and in the middle of blue ocean. Right form the airport pickup , during the stay and till the checkout you will feel as you are in home surrounded by the hotel staff who treat you as a one family with best of hospitality and care. The reception staff was amazing , specially Mr. Ahmed Habib who did whatever he could to make our stay a memorable one, he never say no to anything , you just wish and he will make it happen. also mr, waheed was there to take care of our needs. The restaurant here served the tastiest meal i ever had , they provided you with whatever cuisine you need , in our case they spoiled us with delicious Indian food - thanks to chef Proshantha , he was there at breakfast , lunch and dinner too and made us feel like he was there for us only , catering to all our food demands. he's the best. and also to mention Mr. Mosa , he's service was outstanding as ever , always smiling , he served us so well. and also the chef who used to make omelettes , i don't remember his name but he was excellent., The spa here is one of the best spa in the world. Lydhia was amazing , i would recommend to no miss the spa treatment here if you visit. the housekeeping team is also amazing , keeping the room tidy and neat always. I am sure if i will visit the third time , i will only stay at banyan tree vabbinfaru , i strongly recommend everyone to visit this resort at least once to experience the best of everything a resort should offer. thanks sidhant
