Koamas Trip to Angsana Ihuru & Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru 2015
The two sister islands of Angsana Ihuru and Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru are conveniently located only 25 minutes by speedboat from the airport.
Both islands are small, picturesque with a beautiful beach and stunning lagoon. Angsana Ihuru boasts one of the best house reef in the Maldives and Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru has its own Marine Centre and Turtle Conservation program.
Angsana Ihuru décor is vibrant colours, Red, Orange, Green and Yellow which is a freshening change from the earth tones that many islands use. The resort features Beach Front Villas and Beach Front Villas with Jet-pools. Whilst the rooms are quite compact they do have all the necessary facilities and amenities a holiday maker would require and whilst space would be tight, the rooms can accommodate up to 4 people so ideal for 2 adults plus 2 children. The rooms face out onto the beach, with typical Maldivian swings outside and semi open-air bathrooms. The Beach Front Jet-pool Villas have the added attraction of a jet-pool (Jacuzzi) in the bathroom open-air garden area.
Facilities in the resort include: dive school, non-motorized water sports and small gym, the Angsana Signature Spa, the without doubt one of the main attractions is the amazing house reef.
Whilst the resort does not offer a kids club, the resort does welcome children.
In contrast Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru is much more rustic, and with the use of natural resources such as bamboo and wood, the resort really has a very natural feeling and blends well with the lush vegetation and its natural surroundings. The rooms are round in shape, giving wonderful views of the beach and ocean.
Facilities include the award winning Banyan Tree Spa, dive school, non-motorized sports, small gym and the Marine Centre.
For guests staying at either of these resorts, they have the advantage of being able to visit the other island as a regularly ferry boat operates between the tour resorts, so guests can have two experiences in one.
These two islands are remarkable and two absolute Gems in the Indian Ocean and without doubt guests will have an amazing truly Maldivian experience.
