The Banyan Tree, Maldives (experience)

The reef, the spa, the accommodation.
Overall the experience was wonderful, but we experienced some noise from neighbouring rooms.

Paradise on earth!

Room, View, Snorkeling
It was a great stay overall. The villa is awesome, with all the amenities you need, the pool and Jacuzzi very useful on rainy days. Staff are nice and polite. View from beachfront pool villa is really breathtaking. Very beautiful reef around the island, it was great to snorkel around. The only thing did not reach our expectation was the food, that's the reason it is not value for money in our opinion.

You'll love it!

Staff, service and all that you could think of
Very enjoyable that we were upgraded on check in to a slightly better villa , only 2 in the group of 48 villas but most importantly were the attention and care given by the staff like Prica, Alvin, Rajivh (the chef) and Aslam (our room maker)plus every staff we greet you anytime you walk past them or if they see you from a far.
