The level of service was great!
First timers alert - there are many boat transfer counters at the Male airport that goes to nearby resorts so no need to fret even if you haven't made any transfer reservations. They have a list of who's due to check in that day. + points here already! We got a free upgrade to a bigger garden villa because we are celebrating our wedding anniversary (with compliments of Laura, a beautiful German lady). She asked for a copy of our wedding cert but we didn't bring. I did have my wedding photo on my phone which had the date stamped on it and could have shown it to her but there was no need to. Major trust there! She also made special arrangements for our transfer at check out. ❤️ Our sunrise-facing villa (no. 45) was huge, 2 outdoor showers, 2 jacuzzi, 1 pool, 1 veranda, 1 patio, and direct access to the lovely 50 shades of blue waters. Everyone was warm and lovely, and ever so accommodating with our requests. The sand at our door step was not quite as fine as the opposite site of the island but it turns to the powdery form further down. Room and turn down service was great, they even set up the ambience really nicely. We took bed+breakfast option as we booked through Agoda. It was fine with us as we had quite a no of things to do and didn't want to abide by the dining timings. 2 restaurants in the entire island, with daily menu changes. Breakfast was quite a wide spread (muffins - my favourite) while dinner, we usually order dine-in room service (seafood pizza is a must-try!). If you're a beginner at snorkeling, Banyan is an awesome place to begin with. You can already see marine life just a few meters away from shore. It's my first time too and I did the group guided tour. It was awesome (for a first time!), I saw many small sharks and finally a turtle just as we were returning. 😍 Don't forget the 5pm feeding stingray and 530pm baby turtles time slots! It was quite the experience. Thank you Banyan, for making our stay so pleasant.

Beautiful getaway
Our stay in Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru was very pleasant. We ve stayed for one week and the island is simply paradise. Although it is quite small and there is only one restaurant on Vabbinfaru, you can do various activities in the hotel and the food was very good, tasty and varied a lot. You can also take advantage of visiting the neighbour island Angsana Ihuru. We very much enjoyed snorkling as the reef is simoly stunning. The spa is also grat with very proffessional staff. The "arrival jet lag massage" was the best idea ever! The staff is very kind and willing to help. We loved the daily stingray and baby turtle feeding and the Marine Biology Class is a must see.

Pure Magic
The resort is located about a 30 mins ride by speed boat from the airport. There was a staff of the hotel at the airport to welcome us and direct us to the awaiting boat. It is extremely well organised. when we arrived at the resort, there was a resort staff waiting for us at the pier to welcome us and explain the lay out of the hotel, facilities and the room. The resort, the beach service, food is excellent. our stay was pure magic. highly recommended, extremely relaxing and more important is the privacy each room provides to the quest. will definitely go again.

Great location
Location. Wildlife and staff performance
Overall we enjoyed our stay. But I don't think we will be back. The food was not up to our liking as I felt it was too repetitive and not much variety. The activities was limited and not well advertised.

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.
