Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru

‘Swaying Coconut-trees, Pool-Villa Seclusion’
Fringed by the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru is a circular island resort in the North Male Atoll surrounded by a splendid coral reef. It is particularly renowned for its private, luxurious thatched-roof villas each with their own pool set in a tropical walled garden. This elegant property simply oozes castaway romance and the addition of new Spa Sanctuary Pool Villas with its unlimited complimentary spa treatments is surely the ultimate for a honeymoon getaway. If you wish to be active, you’ll find a great choice of water sports including of course amazing diving and snorkelling – the marine-rich house reef is an ideal starting point. Dine outdoors in one of the two restaurants, or select in-villa or ‘wherever you like’ with Destination Dining.
