Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru



The beautiful setting and wonderfully private pool villas at Vabbinfaru are the perfect recipe for relaxation, and there is a great emphasis on providing romantic, memorable experiences that ensure a magical stay.




The surroundings at Vabbinfaru are conducive to hours - if not days - of R&R: fine white sand beaches, tepid waters, obliging staff and delightful private villas with pool-side salas; but there is a host of facilities and activities including an excellent spa, first rate dive and watersports centre, Marine Biology Lab, fitness centre, gallery and restaurants to keep you occupied. The resort is on the smaller side and has a romantic, understated feel, with plenty of room for indulgence as well as the option to get involved with various conservation programmes. 



The 43 shell-shaped, thatch-roof villas at Vabbinfaru are particularly appealing to couples and families seeking privacy, thanks to four poster beds, twin bathrooms, and private gardens with sun deck, plunge pool and jet pool. Décor is airy and contemporary, with white draped fabrics and large windows to let in the sunlight. Some of the villas have direct beach access and salas that are elevated over the sea, while others enjoy outdoor showers and alfresco dining areas.     


Modern luxury meets conservation.


Vabbinfaru is lovely for self-sufficient families.Though there is no children's club at the resort, there are quite a few child-friendly activities on offer, including the chance to learn about the conservation work being carried out by the island's resident biologists, which includes turtle and stingray feeding. There is also a range of watersports including always fun banana boat rides. Expert diving instruction is open to children over the age of eight, while younger children can enjoy catamaran and dhow outings to explore marine life which may include dolphins. There is also the chance to enjoy quality time over delicious meals thanks to the resort's private and in-villa dining opportunities, as well as learning about Maldivian culture at the Bodu Beru night of live music and dancing.


Weddings at Vabbinfaru make the most of the beautiful natural setting. You can say or renew your vows on the beach at sunset - when it is perhaps at its most beautiful - on a deserted sandbank, or even underwater in Velavaru Lagoon. After your big day, there are many other romantic experiences to enjoy together, including dhoni sailing, cookery classes, romantic beach barbecues and couples' massages.

Insider Viewpoint

The Maldives is a stunning natural environment and at Vabbinfaru luxury and pampering don't come at the expense of that: you can rest assured that Vabbinfaru's impact is a positive one, and can be as involved - or not - as you wish. The villas here prove particularly difficult to drag yourself away from thanks to lovely private gardens with pools, but I highly recommend taking a boat across to a deserted sandbank for the ultimate castaway dinner of barbecued lobster under the stars.

Idyllic seclusion with an emphasis on conservation.
