We just got home from 5 nights at the Banyan Tree, Maldives and the resort was perfect with 1 minor exception. The air-conditioning in our room was too noisy. We stayed in villa 45 which was just a little too crowded with our surrounding villas. We paid for a deluxe beach villa and I was a little disappointed with other...

The service at Banyan tree was top notch right from the moment you are greeted at Male airport. We had the beach front villa with jacuzzi which was really private, and offered great views of the beach and sea front. House reef was excellent and we saw nurse sharks, turtles and tons of fish while snorkelling. Do take the free...

Whether it was in-room requests, or dining at the restaurant, service was always prompt and staff were attentive. We had a great time with the many activities organised by the staff as part of the wedding. Staff participated whole-heartedly in beach soccer with...

Besides being set in an excellent house reef that balances both snorkeling and diving, and the beautiful turquoise ocean across Maldives, the instinctive service and hospitality of the Banyan Tree staff certainly enhances the Maldives experience. Especially enjoyed the Easter surprise placed in the...

Attended a friend's wedding here and it was beautiful. The service from the attentive staff made our stay even better. Check out the sandbank for a private dinner and head out for the sunset cruise. The dive center and marine lab guys were also patient and friendly, often making sure we had the right equipment and always answering our million...

Although it rains from the afternoon untill minight every day during our stay, I still want to say it is a wonderful trip. However, there are two items that I feel unsatisfied with: (1) the monotonous desh, comparing with the island Taj which I visited last time; (2) poor room's insulation. I can hear the voice from the lady of...
