I have stayed in Banyan Tree resorts in the past and I have to say that they are often the yardstick in which luxury resorts should be measured against. The resort at Vabbinfaru is no different, nice villas, a peaceful location and friendly staff, you could argue that this Banyan Tree resort is the best of the lot. When you...
