Everyone was very helpful and smiling and greets you with a pleasant hello or good morning/afternoon/evening. Food is also good with a lot of restaurant choices. Go for the all-inclusive package as it is worth it - buffet meals in the Gallery restaurant plus selected... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
