We visited Vabbinfaru in July, during the rainy season. I think it's a good time to go if you don't mind the occasional rain shower or night-time thunderstorm which is spectacular viewed in the comfort of your ocean villa! Vabbinfaru is not far at all from Male, and a boat transfer is booked in advance to speed you to the...

This was my first trip to the Maldives and I am very happy to say my wife made the right choice in picking Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru. My wife took her scuba diver certification at the in-house dive center and we had 3 great dives at the house reefs in Vabbinfaru and Angsana Ihuru. The best thing is we don't have...

As it was my first experience in Maldives, I didn't believe those nice photos of beaches, resorts and the island until I went there and put my legs into this nice clean blue water!

Staying at Banyan Tree was an experience of life time and it was beyond my expectation. The most exclusive thing was the friendliness and outstanding cooperative attitude of the staff. Location is outstanding and the privacy is perfect. Villa facilities are really very comforting; air-conditioning could be a bit more adaptive but still was not that bad. View from the...

Very satisfied with everything in this island, Banyan Tree is surrounded by white sand beach, blue sky and silky sea waves, all look perfect for a cozy vocation with your soulmate or family, with warming smile on every staff's face, which make you feel comfortable and relaxed, no more choice in Maldives if u do not choose Banyan Tree!

Great place with fantastic clear sea. It doesn't have the marine life of 15 years ago but that is the result of bleached coral everywhere. The staff were fantastic and surprisingly the food was very very good. Past experiences of Maldivian cooking were either very western or pretty dull.
