fabulous place
It was beautiful. If you are going to eat at the coffee shop double check your bill you might get charged twice. The cleaner Khalil was wonderful person pays attention to every detail while he is cleaning. All the staff are friendly and well groomed

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.

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.
