Banyan Tree, Vabbinfaru, Maldives

Perhaps being pampered in a world class spa, whilst you gaze out over snow-white sand and a sparkling Indian Ocean isn’t actually heaven. But it is very close.

If you’re planning a luxury, tailor-made vacation to the Maldives, make sure you put the accent very firmly on the ‘luxury’. Stay at the Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru and you’ll have an immaculate beach and a shimmering topaz ocean at the tips of your toes. Expert masseurs will relax every muscle of your body as you lie in a thatched pagoda, itself standing on stilts above the murmuring sea. Skilled chefs will prepare Maldivian lobster and sea scallops, and serve them to you on a private, lamp-lit pier. And then, when you feel energetic, you can sail a catamaran to nearby sandbanks, go diving, wake boarding or skiing, or take a romantic sunset cruise. The Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru is the ideal idyll for couples of all ages and heaven-seekers everywhere.
