very few glitches, fantastic stay

our (pool) room on the beach was amazing
...wth a pool and tub to retire to after snorkeling and places to rest on the beach or reading or watching. Staff were so incredibly helpful. Just a slight bit less friendly than Angsanga. The buffets were amazing with my only comment to make it more spicy. The snorkeling is as good as Angsanga but for slightly increased turbidity due to larger beach area and a longer way to swim to get to the outer reef. I hope that 2016 does not bleach the corals which are recovering nicely from the bleaching the Maldives experienced in 1998. This is an amazing resort!

Excellent resort for couples and family.

Pool, Food and Staff
We had an excellent stay at the Banyan Tree. We were travelling with 2 young kids and found the resort safe for kids. The restaurant staff are very friendly and make real efforts to look after guests. Resort offers full board packages and supply plenty of water, tea coffee, juices and fruits in room, in addition to buffet lunch and set menu dinner.

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.

For long relaxing holidays

It's unique location, privacy , less people
Everything was great except too many Chinese tourists ruin the entire atmosphere. They wear room bathrobe to the restaurant , their small kids shout everywhere. Manner issues need to be taken care of.

The Heaven On Earth

The best three things about this hotel is the breathtaking sceneries, water activities, and the caring staff.
Right when we got off the speed boat the resort sent to pick us up from the airport, one of the staff was already at the jetty waiting to pick us up. Like other Banyan Tree, they offered us with a tasty drink to cool us down from the heat. It was around noon when we reach the resort and they offered us lunch to eat before we return to our rooms. The stay was amazing, not only the beautiful Maldivan sky and ocean, but also the service Banyan Tree provides their guests. Their caring ness has made us, and I believe all guests, feel welcomed and belonged. We think that they've assigned a waitress in the restaurant to a few family, and that had made us feel extremely important to the resort. Also, the room has an ambient design which relaxes us in the morning and at night. Although the room has a pool and jacuzzi, it is not massive, but it is cozy. The best part of it is probably that you are able to feel the sand just a footstep away from your room. There's a Thai sala for us to sit in which allowed us to listen to the sound of the waves and enjoy the breathtaking scenery in front of our eyes. The marine lab and the projects they've been working on is very impressive. We were able to see the sea turtles they are taking care of, and to see the Rays coming in everyday for food. There are so many wildlife around the island I guess it is because of how welcoming Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru has made us all feel.
