Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru *****

A truly luxury holiday adventure is guaranteed in a Maldives paradise when you venture to the Banyan Tree, Vabbinfaru.

This elegant 5-star resort is just a short speedboat journey away from Male, offering understated barefoot luxury.

Sink your toes into warm white sands, gaze out at the dazzling crystal clear waters and revel in the renowned Banyan Tree brand's splendid hospitality.

Paradise Found 

A jewel in the North Male Atoll, blessed with lush tropical palms, immaculate coral beaches, sparkling cerulean waters, and a house reef bustling with turtles, manta rays that appear daily to be fed at the water's edge.

Maldives Island Hideaway

The stunning white powdery beach wraps around the island with 48 rustic-all-pool villas nestled within lush tropical gardens, offering seclusion and privacy. Do something, take a stroll around the edge of the island or simply do nothing, and watch the beautiful reflections of wispy clouds dance across the sea.

Wellness & Relaxation

Your journey to spiritual, mental, and physical wellness begins at Banyan Tree Spa Vabbinfaru at this award-winning sanctuary for the senses.

The spa comprises five outdoor pavilions, be pampered by expertly trained therapists while relaxing in the breeze from the glistening Indian Ocean.

"I truly felt 10 years younger after just a week and was energized by the combination of bespoke treatments and yoga sessions tailored to suit my lifestyle." - Andrea


With beachfront restaurants offering HB, FB, or AI, Ilaafathi and Sangu create lavish spreads of International or Maldivian cuisines with impeccable service. The waterfront Naiboli Bar has the perfect ambiance for the evening to sit back and taste exotic cocktails.

Embrace the Environment

This is the perfect holiday for those ecological warriors wanting to reduce their carbon footprint and embrace the sustainability core value at the heart of Banyan ethos.

You can join resident marine biologists and assist with research projects.

Guests at Banyan Tree are welcome to visit the marine lab and become involved with coral planting and reef cleaning. Also, a centre for green turtle conservation and a highlight of my stay was to assist and see the young turtle hatchlings being released into the ocean!


The delightful beach huts scatter the island and each has its own secluded oasis, including a private pool and outdoor jacuzzi, complete with an outdoor bathroom and tropical rain shower offering you that Robinson Crusoe experience. 

  • Oceanview Pool Villa
  • Beachfront Pool Villa
  • Spa Sanctuary Pool Villa


Indulge in the exquisite dining experiences on offer in this fabulous resort. The rustic wooden tables and the barefoot ambiance greet you at the Ilaafathi restaurant where you can expect the highest standard of fine dining.

For a special romantic evening dine on a sandbank under the stars.

Naiboli Bar is the perfect place to chill with a signature cocktail.  


For those looking to keep active, there is a health and fitness centre, an array of watersports available, and the transparent brilliance of the ocean is perfect for snorkeling and diving.

Witness the daily appearance of local stingrays as they are fed by the beachfront! 

Diving Experience

Banyan Vabbinfaru is the ideal place to learn how to dive. As an average swimmer, I was surprised how quickly I found my confidence!

You can take a PADI course with highly qualified and professional dive instructors, and for those keen to snorkel but at a novice level, the lifejackets, flippers, and snorkels are fitted before a starter lesson in the lagoon, to make sure you feel super confident.

Discover more on an overnight cruise onboard the Kahan’bu catamaran, for unforgettable snorkeling and dive spots of the North and South Malé Atolls. 

Personal Experience by Andrea

Definitely, the perfect choice to celebrate my special wedding anniversary a few years ago. From the gorgeous beach hut with its own little pier and the perfect patch of sand to snorkeling at the reef edge and watching the tiny turtles be released into the ocean. Each day started and finished with a relaxed vibe! Andrea
