Ilaafathi is the resort’s main restaurant, serving a range of international specialities in a rustic setting on the beach. An exciting new addition to the island is Madi Hiyaa, an exclusive overwater restaurant offering authentic Japanese cuisine with a Maldivian twist.

Banyan Tree are renowned for their outstanding spas, and Vabbinfaru is no exception! Guests can indulge in a range of holistic treatments based on traditional Asian healing philosophies that make use of locally grown ingredients. Offerings include acupuncture and myofascial release, where therapists use pressure on trigger points to help enhance mobility and alleviate pain. Private yoga classes are available on the beach or in a serene studio, and guests can also simply relax in the privacy of their tranquil villa.

Experiences & Island Adventures

As well as being the perfect setting for a wellbeing retreat, Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru provides unforgettable experiences and plenty in the way of activities. Boasting a vibrant house reef, it’s own marine lab and a PADI dive centre, the island is a perfect choice for keen snorkellers and divers. For those keen to explore some local culture, Maldivian culinary classes are on offer, as are Boduberu nights, where guests can join in with traditional Maldivian dance. Guests can also explore the resort’s sister island, Dhawa Ihuru, reached by a short boat transfer. Of course relaxing by the new saltwater infinity pool is also an option!
