Me and my wife were at banyan tree for 4 days in June for our honeymoon. It is a beautifully designed villa that we had, opening right into the sea. Great views, great food and great service were the highlights of this trip.

My wife got ill during the stay and the staff was super courteous to ensure we had customized food, also they coordinated with the hospital in male to ensure a trouble free stay!! Special mention to Rajesh the chef for cooking for us some wonderful meals!

My Hilmy the GM is a very warm host and absolutely clued on to the happenings in the island. Thanks to him for making this trip a WOW!

One thing that was amiss was a quality jaccuzi and a swimming pool in the property. The hotel is going through a renovation and now i guess they are covering up thee loose ensds as well....all rooms would have pools (i think so) and a new jacuzzi!!!

Ohh and before i forget, the sting ray feeding is a unique feature of this place!!! it was so amazing to see such huge fishes floating on the coast....there were some which came to the beach right outside our villa!!! i loved that!!! They say friendly baby sharks also swim on those waters but i didnt come across any :(

Spa also looked very welcoming...though i thought it was expensive. we had a brief complimentary sessions and the Spa promised quite a bit. Guess would experience that next time i am there!!

Overall...absolutely recommended!!! Go for it....

This is my 3rd Banyan Tree. Same high quality. Perfect location, perfect beach, perfect service, perfect coral and lagoon. WIFI is not so good. No TV in room (but i dont think I need TV in maldives...)

a second stay as unforgettable as the previous one. Everything is there, but a measured and this contributes to the discreet charm of this establishment. Impeccable in every way: the reception and the courtesy of all personnel, equipment quality, cleanliness, decor, quality food ...
It has only one desire, to return as soon as possible.
