Nice resort to enjoy pleasures in life; relax at the beach & dive. Dive school is not the best, they are too commercial an less about the divers experience. Luckily you can go yourself at the house reef.

I stayed for 6 nights with my Wife and my 2 boys, and I was expecting that my kids will get bored soon and that's will destroy all our plans, however Bandos turned to be an enjoyable place for my kids more than me and my wife. Standard Room ( Room # 223)is excellent considering its space, decoration and location... More

Pros: The island is beautiful. The snorkeling is fantastic. The house reef is amazing. The Thai restaurant is delicious and the buffet there is worth the cost. This is a good island for a family with children. We traveled with teenagers and it was a good fit for us. Cons: The food is overpriced, which is to be expected, but... More

We have just returned from a 10 night stay in Bandos and loved it. It was our first time in the Maldives and we have got the bug! We have two children who found more than enough to do with the pool which was large, spotlessly clean and not crowded, and the snorkelling where they spotted baby sharks and a... More

We have just returned from our honeymoon at Bandos. We stayed for ten nights. It was absolutely brilliant. The resort is very well organised and the staff could not be more helpful or friendlier. Our room was a delux room. It was very comfortable, clean and spacious. Air conditioning worked a treat and the daily cleaning meant that all the... More

We had taken 1 of the only two water villas on the island and it was absolute luxury.The water villa is huge with separate living area,bedroom,huge open air lounge and an equally huge bathroom with jacuzzi. Of course it is exorbitantly priced but was worth it.The location was great with the beach closeby(although the beach itself is quite small). Otherwise... More

Friendly staff, down to earth owner, wonderful amenities, gorgeous/tranquil beach and awesome atmosphere! Food choices were not plentiful and not that tasty. Please expand choices of cuisine. Otherwise, awesome experience! Did not realize there would be as many children at this resort.

The island resort is simply awesome! The villa we stayed in was really clean when we checked in, and was cleaned at least twice daily. Lovely view of the beach from the downstairs patio & upstairs balcony. The living room & bathroom suite is downstairs, the bedroom upstairs. Wooden floors. The bathroom suite of rooms are something to behold. It's... 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
