A paradise island getaway in the Maldives, with breakfast, a massage for two, flights, speedboat transfers and a luxury private pool villa with a Jacuzzi

Far removed from urban living and nestled on a tiny island in the North Malé Atoll, Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru is an ideal escape for those who want to log out from modern living. The resort’s collection of dazzling villas feature Maldivian styling with romantic thatched roofs. Despite their rustic appearance, each villa is equipped with a host of modern amenities; a private pool and your very own Jacuzzi for starters.

The main restaurant is perfect for a laid-back meal in a romantic setting; you can head to the beachfront bar for cocktails or you can opt for more bespoke options such as intimate in-villa dining or sunset barbecue dinners. When you're not beach or pool hopping, indulge the senses with a reviving session in the luxury spa.

Naturally, the resort offers plenty of ways to experience the scenic beauty that surrounds Vabbinfaru. The watersports and diving centre offers snorkelling, dive trips, guided catamaran excursions and more. You can even go on a scenic sunset cruise through the lagoon on the resort’s traditional Maldivian dhoni.

Good to know

A Green Tax of USD 6 per person, per night is not included and is payable directly to the resort. This helps fund environmental projects in the Maldives.


Oceanview Pool villas are stunning retreats that encapsulate the classic Maldives island experience. Inside, the villa is dressed in neutral tones and styled in a modern-tropical fashion. A four-poster king-size bed made of teak faces a curved wall of French doors. Outside, the villa’s private pool and outdoor Jacuzzi take centre stage and the beach is directly accessible from the patio.

The resort also offers more intimate destination dining options for special occasions that include a four-course barbecue beach dinner.


The breezy Banyan Tree Spa on Vabbinfaru offers a broad range of spa treatments that are inspired by traditional Asian healing philosophies. The spa also highlights natural products including soothing balms made from locally grown coconuts. For a truly indulgent treat, pick the Sense of Romance package which includes dinner as well as an intimate spa session for two in the comfort of your villa.


Perched on an island idyll in the North Malé Atoll, Vabbinfaru is where awe-inspiring vistas are the norm - from its tranquil turquoise waters to pristine sands. This paradisal escape is located just 16 kilometres north of Velana International and can be reached by speedboat transfer.
