The Banyan tree vabbinfaru was an amazing destination for our honeymoon. Everything - the location, food, service, rooms, spa - was fantastic. From the minute you get off the plane and on to the boat you settle into comfort and relaxation. It was the perfect place for a honeymoon and we wish we could go back every year!
The villas were lovely and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Lunch was our favourite meal (BBQ buffet like you have never seen with home made ice-cream and other desserts!) but all the food was excellent with a wide range of choices. We also had a number of spa treatments and these were wonderful and we thought very good value for money.
We don't scuba dive but the snorkelling on the house reef was very good - we saw sharks, sting rays, turtles, and so many fish and types of coral! We also kayaked around the island. Extra excursions that we paid for were the snorkelling safari (good - would recommend), sand bank dining (amazing - once in a lifetime experience!), trip to local island (OK, but if you are strapped for time wouldn't do it), trip to Male (wouldn't bother doing this).
We had a wonderful time at the Banyan Tree and would jump at the chance to go back again. If you want an amazing holiday/honeymoon experience and be totally relaxed and refreshed at the end of it then this is place!!
