Stayed here for a week, enjoyed the stay. Very friendly staff and really good cooking. Especially the fish was excellent. Rooms are nice as well. As it’s a small island and this is located right in the middle, all is within 5 minutes walking distance.
The Banyan was exactly 'as advertised', no (bad) surprises, very helpful staff (even if my specification of 'omelette' confused the chef initially, and I got three perfectly fried eggs instead). The 'go-to guy', Assad, was most helpful in arranging everything, from PCR, to diving, to transport, to airport hotel - many thanks! I was there on my own to 'wind down' over Xmas, but may come b ack next year with girlfriend..... Thanks All.
We had a fantastic staying. Assad and his staff received us incredibly well, he was a very good friend to us. The hotel structure is really good, the hotel is 5 minutes walking to the beach. We made excursions to see whale shark and manta rays. I recommend the hotel to everyone.
The most perfect holiday! The island was beautiful, people were very friendly. Nothing negative to say. 2 adults and 2 kids, aged 7 and 10. We are defenitely going back some day! A long way from Male by speedboat but it was worth it!
The staff was so friendly. Every time they passed they said hello, good morning, or good afternoon. The service was impeccable. The food was tasty. The atmosphere was amazing. I would come back to a lux resort! Always something to do. We LOVED our romantic pool villa. They came in twice a day to clean. Once in the morning to make the bed, and once in the evening to turn down the bed for sleeping. Everything was beyond expectation. Best vacation I’ve had to date!
