What We Love

  • Daily American breakfast is included in the Jetsetter rate
  • Elegant, without a hint of snobbery; leave the shoes in the villa
  • Permanent on-site marine biology team who lead excellent snorkel safaris
  • Short speedboat transfer from the Malé airport
  • Genuinely friendly, unfawning service from staff you actually enjoy hanging out with
  • Serious spa treatments from highly trained professionals

What To Know

  • No TVs in the rooms or on the island. This is a place to unplug and unwind
  • Drinks aren’t included in the price of the room and can be quite costly
  • The island is tiny — you can literally walk around it in 15 minutes
  • Small but harmless baby blacktip sharks in the lagoon may unnerve some guests
  • Water currents shift the sands, so the villas’ beaches increase or decrease from week to week
  • Speedboat transfers to/from Malé are roughly $113.50 per person, each way, and can be arranged through the property

Banyan Tree Bliss

We came to this beautiful natural island on our honeymoon and loved every moment. It is completely respectful to the wildlife and nature of the island, the beauty is awe-inspiring. The food was truly delicious, we loved every meal with plenty of Maldivian treats!

Paradise
kickstart2019

Amazing place with lots of beach area, staff amazing , room was very clean we stayed in the beach villa which is recommended. The sea was the highlight with lot activities available. August the weather is unpredictable so better to go in the months between November to April .

Very Good

Very good accommodation and villa. Small island, you can go anywhere in less than 7 mins with a very nice beach/lagoon in the island for those who love the sea. Food wasn't as good as we expected but breakfast was very good. Staff were very friendly and welcoming.
