Banyan Tree, Vabbinfaru, Maldives

How long does it take to discover one of life’s ultimate pleasures? About twenty minutes by speedboat. Welcome to the Banyan Tree Hotel in the Maldives.

If you’ve always wanted to laze on an immaculate beach, listening to the Indian Ocean make music on white sand. If you long to spend day after day being pampered in a world class spa. If you love water sports and excellent cuisine…come to the Banyan Tree Hotel in the Maldives.

This is one Maldives hotel with everything you need. Set on the tiny island of Vabbinfaru – twenty minutes by boat from Malé – the Banyan Tree consists of only 48 villas. Each has a design reminiscent of a nautilus shell, with luxury features that include al fresco dining terraces, bedrooms with draped, king-sized, four poster beds and sumptuous bathrooms with step-down showers.

And then there’s the award winning spa. No hotel in the Maldives can offer finer. It is arranged through five garden pavilions and features a cornucopia of traditional and ethnic treatments, including the fabled Rainmist Revival therapy with its body polish and special banyan Tree massage.

Dinner is served in the Ilaafathi Restaurant or by a private chef and butler on your dining terrace. Or beside the lagoon itself.

Add in water sports, PADI diving, island hopping, shopping trips and marine biology classes and you’ve arrived at one of life’s great pleasures. The Banyan Tree Hotel in the Maldives.
