Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru

On a tiny exclusive island, Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru is a perfect place to experience traditional Maldivian magic. Fine white sand and bright blue water provide the backdrop for 48 charming villas, each cooled by the sea breeze of the Indian Ocean.

Encased by a white powdery beach, beautiful and individual circular Beachfront and Oceanview Villas feature thatched roofs, a private walled garden and both a pool and jet pool. Beachfront Villas have the added benefit of leading straight onto the sand, allowing guests to feel even closer to the warm water’s edge. Indulge at the award-winning spa or discover vibrant marine life while island hopping, snorkelling and diving. The Banyan Tree Maldives Marine Lab ensures divers of all abilities leave with memorable underwater experiences, while above the surface, watch as stingrays take their evening feed.

Cookery classes deliver a fun taste of the Maldives, as resort chefs conduct culinary demonstrations on-request and allow guests to watch, learn and sample their creations. Savour a private barbecue in your villa or dine on eclectic Maldivian and international cuisine at the fabulous Ilaafathi restaurant. The open-air Naiboli Bar also serves an extensive range of appetising snacks and light meals, along with a selection of refreshing cocktails.
