What we say

Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru

Ever explored the dark depths of a sunken shipwreck, or fed a beautiful stingray at sunset? Well, here's your chance- what are you waiting for?

At Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru in the Maldives, a world of possibilities awaits you...

Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru
The awesome surroundings

You'll find this lovely resort located in the North Male Atoll, in seas surrounded by coral reefs and teeming with diverse marine life. The best place to relax and holiday with the family or ignite some sparks with an unparalleled romantic experience.

So much to do...

For the romantic in you, try the Sharkpoint Dinner where the best cuisine is laid out on the beach for you and your loved one to enjoy in private. There is also the Sandbank Dining option where Asian, Maldivian and Continental dishes are served up in an intimate sandbank setting for a truly memorable dining experience.

The watersports at the Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru are out of this world. With the best oceans to sail, dive, snorkel or explore, you will never be in want of more adventure. Take a sunset cruise on a traditional Maldivian dhoni or take a sandbank tour- it's all about discovering new places.

Enjoy a Siam massage on the beach where the wind blows through your hair as the experts rub your cares away in traditional Thai style.

If you're the kind of person who keeps a bucket list of unimaginable things to do, you might get lucky in ticking one off at the Banyan Tree as they invite their guests to feed sting rays just before sunset... So don't forget to speak to the resort if this excites you.

There's also an artificial sunken shipwreck waiting to be explored in the waters between Vabbinfaru and Ihuru. The wreck is also surrounded by the most beautiful corals you will ever see. It's a dive of a lifetime!
