We keep looking and keep checking trip adviser, but we can't find a better island for the same price. It has a house reef and 1st class diving, a fabulous spa, great restaurants and friendly, helpful staff. Trying to think of a fault, but can't!

The resort is 20 minutes by boat from the airport. Though the boat ride was choppy, the magnificent blue waters made up for the uncomfortable ride. The staff were efficient and courteous and the villa provided was spacious and comfortable. We joined an outdoor fishing tour and were able to catch fish which were then cooked by the restaurant for... More

I stayed here in August 2014 with my fiancé for 4 nights and would fully recommend Bandos Island. From the moment we landed and were greeted at Male airport by the resort speedboat, we knew we would be well looked after during our stay. The best parts about Bandos are the tropical feel, soft white sand and turquoise waters that... More

Just coming to the close of a twelve day break with 11 year old twin boys in tow. We were a little worried in advance about how the Maldives would stand up as a family destination - having been twice before as a couple - but it was truly wonderful. The boys when asked rated it as 5.5 stars out... More

Stayed at Bandos for three nights. Managed to get a very cheap rate for one of the the waterfront jacuzzi villas. Great room, plenty of space, clean and comfortable. Prices at the resort where expensive but not extortionate. A beer was around $7 after tax and a spirit with coke was around $12.

We came together with 3 families hoping to have an enjoyable holiday, even though we don't have high expectations on the hotel, we just didn't expect unprofessional restaurant staff (especially at main restaurant Gallery) can ruin the whole experience, disregard the staff at excursions, water sports and spa are good. Won't come back again and won't recommend to anyone who... More

we stayed in a Jacuzzi Villa at Bandos Maldives from 25 July to 30 July. We enjoyed our stay all along and it was a very good experience. The long pleasant walks, water sports & activities and daily trips were all memorable. This resort has good house reefs and very good for snorkeling. Plus 1. Nice and friendly staff 2.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Not wishing to rest on the laurels of our existing achievements, Bandos had in the past year undertaken a major refurbishment project with the intention of transforming ourselves into a hotel that is truly reflective of the times. Careful consideration however, was given at all times to ensure that the old-world refinement for which the island has a reputation remained uncompromised. Under the project, major facelifts have been given to the front desk, lobby areas, shops, restaurants and bars and have furthermore commissioned a new swimming pool and additional accommodation facilities all of which perfectly blend with the island’s tropical splendour and give visitors a taste of the Maldivian aesthetic. ... more   less
