Banyan Tree, Vabbinfaru, Maldives

White sandy beaches, beautiful coconut trees, and tropical sunshine are just some of the ingredients for the perfect holiday getaway; and the Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru provides each one, plus more. This is an island surrounded by a spectacular coral reef –described as a ‘sanctuary for the senses’ – and is located on the North Male Atoll, just a 25-minute speedboat ride from Ibrahim Nasir International Airport.

Guests can simply relax and enjoy lazy days on the beach or become involved in a host of enjoyable activities based at the resort. Many take full advantage of the health and fitness centre activities, participate in diving trips through the enchanting coral reefs, or getting involved in the many exhilarating water sports available.

Ilaafathi Restaurant is situated on the beachfront, where meals can be enjoyed under the natural grass-roofed building.

Naiboli Bar – While the Naiboli Bar is renowned for its delicious cocktails and friendly atmosphere, it is also the ideal spot to enjoy a snack or light meal while chatting with friends or unwinding after a day of adventure.

Sandbank Dining – Take a speedboat trip to a spectacular sandbank and enjoy a meal under the stars, with just the moon and torches to bring light to the meal. A feast of gourmet food accompanied by fine champagne makes this a dining experience to remember.

In-Villa Dining – For extra privacy and perhaps a touch of romance, the opportunity to indulge in the in-villa dining menu is one that can be experienced by all guests within the comfort of their private villa. A private chef can create Maldivian and international dishes, all of which will be served by an attentive and personal waiter.
