Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru 5.0

Vabbinfaru, North Male Atoll, Kaafu Atoll
This luxury boutique resort from Thailand's Banyan Tree is slightly bigger and more expensive than sister property Angsana next door. Each of the 48 spa-like villas offers direct water access from the front (beach privacy varies), and in the rear, the pièce de résistance: a walled-in plunge pool and jetted tub area.
