Just had 11 days relaxing at the Banyan Tree Maldives where the service, food and villas were fantastic. The Banyan Tree is on a tiny island with only 48 villas and only a short speedboat trip from Male International Airport My only criticism would be the gym which needs updating and needs more running machines, however during our stay we were taken over to the sister island so that we could use their gym.

This was one of my best stays ever throughout my traveler's life. Upon arrival we were brought by the resort's speedboat to the island, where a team of 4 welcomed us at the jetty. There were only 3 other couples so we basically had the island to ourselves. We stayed in a beautiful beach villa with a covered terrace directly on the white coral sand beach, an open bathroom with 2 showers and our own private pool and hot tub. With the All Inclusive formula we were spoiled by the Indian chief cook and especially Aziz, our great Moroccan chief cook, who took care of us, spoiling us at every dinner with specially cooked meals of different culinary origins of high level. Zyad, our friendly waiter, always anticipated the slightest need we might have, and we enjoyed a variety of cocktails and a delicious mango coco Lassi. The team of the reception arranged activities for us (the Dive Center was closed because of Corona) and was always there to help us with everything we needed. Snorkeling in the lagoon with crystal clear waters became a daily habit, as the evenings in the pool with endless discussions under a beautiful night sky. We made friends with waterhens (always hungry for themselves and their little ones, saw giant fruit bats flying over our heads to collect fruits in one of the trees, admired the daily feeding of rays (a unique event - they come all the way up to the beach to get some fish from a member of the resort's team), and watched hundreds of fish and some smaller very graceful sharks swimming in the evening right beside the jetty under the spot lights. We did not want to leave at all !!!!!! Thank you once more for the whole team to make our stay a unique and lasting experience - we will be back :-)
