‘Beautiful, Idyllic, Intimate Seclusion’


Fringed by the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean and cast away on its own intricately delightful island, Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru exudes elegance and grace. Cloaked by the reef-bound lagoon; Vabbinfaru island consists of 48 villas delicately placed amongst lush gardens of coconut trees and indigenous blooms, encircled by a pristine stretch of powdery white sand beach. Specifically designed for privacy, elegant thatched-roof villas offer their own paradise of serenity, each flowing out to a tropical walled-garden with a tranquil pool as centre piece. Besides two restaurants, guests can also choose to dine in seclusion with the exceptionally romantic Destination Dining; from a candle lit meal on the beach to a rustic wooden jetty perched above the sparkling ocean - complete with gourmet treats and chilled champagne served by your very own butler. Opportunities to explore the abundant marine life are available through the excellent dive centre, whilst those simply seeking relaxation may look no further than the blissful spa.
