Our first trip ever to Maldives went to Bandos Island. We are sure to go back! Service and staff so friendly, well organised. We stayed at Beach Jacuzzi villa - 10m from the sea (we were upgraded from standard room - yeay!). Staff at Dive Bandos, at restaurants and reception incredibly helpful and accommodating. The island is so lush and... More

Bandos has greatly surpassed my expectations. The snorkeling was amazing. There are a variety of reefs around the islands for all tastes and skills. I have seen all kinds of colorful fish, sharks and different types of reef. If you are on a budget don't go on the snorkeling trips. Chances are is that the snorkeling in the island is... More

The Maldives itself is a spectacular destination and Bandos does not disappoint. It is not the most luxurious resort but we were pleasantly surprised by the service, rooms and activities. Food and activities are also reasonably priced. Rooms are lovely we had a standard bungalow and it was immaculate and the turn down service was great! Overall it is a... More

I recommend this place for all, families with children, couples, friends. The resort has a kids club, free of charge. But it is amazingly quiet and do not see many people on the beach (as the cottages scattered all around the island.. so you can have your privacy). I liked this place. Positive: -Mr. Ibrahim- the duty manager when I... More

This resort is very near to Male and we can see the city from the beach. Upon arrival at the airport, we proceeded to Counter no. 2 and there was someone who escorted us to the Bandos speedboat.The speedboat journey took like 15 mins to reach the resort from airport. We booked deluxe room for 4 nights and were pleasantly... More

We just spent 9 days there in June/July 2014 and had a lovely relaxing time. It was low season, so a bit windy with some rain but also lots of blue sky. Only one day was wet throughout the day, the rest was either clear or some showers mainly at night. The wind stopped it being too hot so it... More

Over all everything was fine, the room was nice, the staffs were good and friendly but the reception was very dissapointing. They're not qualified enough to be a receptionist, especially when they answer or give feedback on phone. They talked unfriendly everytime I called. It's really different when they were welcome-ing me. It needs to be fix because sometimes maybe... 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
