#1 of 3 hotels in Bandos
Travelers' Choice
Not wishing to rest on the laurels of our existing achievements, Bandos Maldives 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.

Hotel's Favorite
Wow! What an amazing time we had at Bandos. They are extraordinarily kids friendly. We travelled with three kids ranging from 1-12. All of them had a blast. Each had different interests and all were taken care of of. Highlight of the trip was snorkelling. Because of their amazing house reef, kids are able to enjoy snorkelling in shallow waters. Even if one just stands in sand and pops their head in, they have plethora to see. The staff is extremely warm and friendly and always eager to help. Few key pointers: 1) life jackets can be hired for free. One can retain it through their stay there. 2) it is advisable to carry your own snorkelling gear, as that works out much cheaper. 3) they have an excellent gift . sharks also can be seen. Kids will enjoy. 6) we went for glass bottom ride. It was nice experience but weather was just tooo hot. If they can plan a timing in morning early hours it will be good. 7) it's just 15 min from male. So very comfortable and affordable travel. An amazing amazing resort filled with kind people. We cannot wait to visit again.

We were met at male and taken to Bandos which took all of 20 minutes. Check in was fast and then taken to our room (236). We chose a std room with all inclusive, the rooms are spacious and nicely presented ( everything you need ) and 10 metres from the beach which is beautiful throughout the island. The food here is amazing and so are the staff!!. The gallery restaurant is buffet, you are served by the chefs who are proud to serve their food to you. I can't say enough about the staff, happy, welcoming and thoroughly charming. The food standard is superb, every dish I had was delicious. On some reviews and the odd comment says its repetitive: fried fish, steamed fish, New Zealand lamb, Argentinan beef, beautiful rice dishes, stunningly flavoured currys, soups, beef teriyaki, chicken breast in mango, ratatouille spiced!!! Pasta dishes to name but a few. A huge array of desserts, fruit and ice cream. The seabreeze has snacks in the afternoon, lightly toasted Sandwiches and fries. We opted for this rather than lunch, home made cookies and cheesecake too. Don't miss the feeding of the rays and sharks here at 7pm. Huvan bar with a lovely breeze and excellent cocktails finished our night off most nights. The pool is a lovely area to relax and have a few afternoon drinks before or after snorkelling on the house reef. The water is clear and the reef is well known amongst the diving fraternity, I saw black tip sharks of various sizes every time I went out. A very special thank you to the chef on the meat area, Rameez at Huvan and Tanuj at the gallery restaurant. The service from Tanuj was absolutely exceptional and made us feel special. Rameez equally gave special service too, I did mention how nice his body spray smelled and two days later I was handed a present all the way from male. Small things like being handed a fresh coconut to drink by the guys harvesting them made it for me. Lovely people and resort. A massive thank you to all.
