Fantastic Experience

King of Prussia, Pennsylvania

The entire staff at Banyon Tree went out of their way to make all of or wishes come true. Nothing was too much trouble for them (or at least they didn't let us know). Everything was a bit pricey, but they were up front about it, They marine center and diving instructors were extremely competent and patient. This was our first experience at diving and we would not have been able to do most of the things we did without their help. All I can say is "Very professional, thank you!" A reasonably priced luxury resort. To choose a resort, we eliminated the most expensive and the least expensive then chose from what was left, there were still a lot. I'm very happy we made this choice. I would return again.

Amazing experience

One of the best places in Maldives if you’re looking for a quiet, luxury Maldivian style resort. Very clean beach! Amazing snorkeling experience. We spent 3 nights and we didn’t feel that we need to see any thing out of the island at all!
