We are departing from beautiful Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru with one crying and one laughing eye. The crying because we are very sad that we have to leave paradise. The smiling as we know for sure that we will be back.😉 We had the most pleasant stay! The outstanding resort staff made us happy every day. I would like to point out our friends: Habeeb the guest relation manager, took utmost outstanding care of us. From day one until departure all our wishes and demands were accomplished.🙏 Khaleel, who prepared our Villa twice a day did a great job. He is very courteous and smilies whenever you see him. 😘🥰😘 Buddy our waiter - the best waiter you can imagine! Top Service!!! Manu is such a lovely guy! With him we explored another beautiful world - underwater! 🐠🐟🦈 Chika the guy who is mostly in charge behind the scene, but also feeds the stingrays with passion, became a great friend. Everybody on the island is dedicated to make your life as easy and enjoyable as possible. Thank you all, we will miss you…

We were lucky enough to make it out to the Maldives for our honeymoon despite Covid and it was so worth it. Incredible staff (especially Suhail) stunning island and breathtaking wildlife. The food was brilliant at every meal and we loved our sundown drinks. The dive centre on the island was so convenient and the spa is worth a visit.

We had an amazing time here at the Banyan Tree Resort in the Maldives. Very friendly and helpful staff, especially Yana. He was very accommodating and made you feel as though you were apart of the family. Great atmosphere, delicious food, and all that next to a great sandy beach with warm clear sea water. A true treasure. Special compliments to all fun activities and extra privacy measures that makes this place so pleasant. A++++++++++++++++ experience.
