Located on its own tiny island in the North Male Atoll, Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru is an intimate resort providing luxurious accommodation in a fabulous tropical setting. This is a picture-perfect tropical island - complete with white sand beaches and crystal clear waters surrounded by a lagoon formed by the offshore coral reef. Banyan Tree provides the ideal environment for a tranquil, relaxing break.
There are 48 villas spread around the island, all of which are located on the beach to maximize the superb ocean views and all have an outdoor jet pool. The villas are constructed of local stone and timber under spiral thatched roofs and the interiors are furnished to a high standard with four poster beds, scented candles and wooden bowls.
The two restaurants serve a range of delicious Asian and international meals with impeccable service. Naiboli Bar offers all day snacks, light meals and cocktails and on Fridays they host a Maldivian night complete with Bodu Beru - a drumming music performance with a Maldivian themed buffet. Ilaafathi offers beachfront dining serving buffet breakfasts and superb dinners.
Weather permitting, Sangu restaurant opens to serve BBQ lunches and theme night dinners under the stars. For a special occasion the hotel will be pleased to arrange private dining in your villa or even on a sandbank at an extra charge.
The PADI Gold Palm 5-star Dive Centre has multi-lingual instructors and offers scuba diving and a range of PADI accredited courses adding to the broad array of watersport facilities. The island has its own marine lab to monitor the marine life and also a gallery selling handcrafted items as well as resort clothing and signature spa amenities.
