Far removed from urban living and nestled on a gorgeous island in the North Malé Atoll, a luxurious beach holiday awaits, just 25 minutes by speedboat from Male International Airport, at Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru Round Trip to the Airport. It has free WiFi access throughout the property including all rooms. Vabbinfaru's exquisite set of villas feature a modern Maldivian styling that incorporates thatched roofs and rustic worn-wood elements. Despite traditional appearances, each villa is equipped with a host of modern amenities like flat screen TVs, both outdoor and indoor showers and more. Tea/coffee making facilities are available in the rooms. All villas are merely steps away from the white sandy beaches, and every villa comes fully furnished with private plunge pool and jet pool. Banyan Tree Spa Vabbinfaru features a relaxing menu of massage treatments and beauty therapies. The resort offers watersports and a diving center offering rental of snorkeling equipment, dove trips and guided catamaran excursions. The property also houses a marine laboratory. Maldivian cuisine, fresh seafood and international dishes are served at the beachfront Ilaafathi Restaurant, Madi Hiyaa and Sangu Garden Restaurant. For additional dining/activity variety, guests are able to travel to Dhawa Ihuru, 5 minutes away by speedboat, where they can dine at Riveli and The Velaavani Bar, and snorkel in the house reef.
