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 splendor and give visitors a taste of the Maldivian aesthetic.

Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Bandos Maldives garners applause for its idyllic location near Male and its pristine cleanliness. The atmosphere is often described as vibrant, with entertainment and services that cater to special moments. Despite the allure of diverse amenities and snorkeling opportunities, some guests feel the 'all inclusive' package falls short of expectations due to additional costs. Room experiences are mixed, with luxurious accommodations impressing many, while others find rooms in need of an update. The hotel's staff is generally celebrated for their dedication, though occasional inconsistency is noted.

Abu Jafor at the main restaurant is a really perfect guy. He is very helpfully and he provides every time the impression that you are always welcome. We hope, we'll see him again during our next visit. Also the other staff like for e.g. restaurant reception, the cooks, the housekeeping and so on provide us a very good welcome feeling

Hotel's Favorite
This was our second time to Bandos, the first time being 25 years ago for our honeymoon. We decided to return to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and to make it even more special, we renewed our Wedding Vows. We travelled with British Airways Holidays as this was the only airline that flew direct to Male. It was more expensive to do the holiday that way, but for someone who doesn’t enjoy flying, it was best for us. Bandos is only 15-20 mins away from Male; we found the island representative in the arrivals area at the airport and after a short wait for other passengers to arrive, we were led to their waiting large speedboat, to take us to Bandos. We were lucky to see a family of dolphins on our journey across the ocean and the pilot of the boat, slowed and stopped the boat so we could take in the beautiful sight of the dolphins against the turquoise blue waters. On arrival to the island, we were led to a reception area and offered cold drinks and warm cleansing cloths to freshen up. After a 10hr+ journey, this was very much appreciated. After a short wait, we were taken to our accommodation by a motorised buggy and our luggage followed shortly behind. We actually got to our room earlier than anticipated as the accommodation was available for us; in theory we should’ve waited 4 hours but we’re kindly allowed to go in early. We booked all inclusive and chose to stay in a Beach Villa for our 9 nights on the island. The accommodation was perfect for our needs; positioned right next to the beach with less than a minute or two to get where we wanted to be. Our accommodation was fairly close to the Huvan, a restaurant/bar that was positioned above the ocean on a walkway jetty. We drank plenty of cocktails from here while watching fish swimming around in the waters below. The position of Huvan was on the west side of the island and gave some beautiful sunsets in the evenings. Our Accommodation was relatively new, very modern with huge king size bed and sofa, tea and coffee making facilities, mini bar etc. hairdryer, and a bathroom that was huge! The bathroom is attached to the accommodation, but is part exposed to the outside ( has no ceiling above the shower)… all open air! Our swimwear dried very quickly in the bathroom after wearing and rinsing! Bandos is a very clean island, and there were many staff on the island always tending to areas on the island, cleaning, tending to plants, sweeping, sorting vegetation etc. The island is somewhat self sustaining and grows vegetables, fruits, rears chickens/ eggs etc. The staff are so helpful and just can’t do enough for you; nothing is too much trouble and they will go out of their way to be helpful in whatever you need. Even though it was the holy month of Ramadan and some staff often were working without eating until after sunset, this never stopped them from smiling and continuing with their normal working activities. The staff are a credit to this island. We could not have got better if we had paid more for a five star island; in our eyes, this lovely island had gone from 4 star to 5 stars in the 25 years since we’d been there! So many changes that were positive, 3 restaurants to now choose from ( previously only 1), an entertainments/ bar area which had a program of changing entertainment throughout the week, a lovely large outside swimming pool with swim up bar, which served some wonderful drinks/cocktails or tea if you preferred! Highlights to our holiday were watching small sharks and stingrays in the evening near the Seabreeze Cafe; just amazing to watch these swim right up to the jetty and await food that was often given to them in the evening. We renewed our wedding vows 2 days after arriving on the island, on our actual 25th wedding anniversary. We had emailed in advance of the holiday to ask and explain of our intention to do this and on arrival, after an initial chat and a few smaller chats, everything was taken care of by the management and Bandos staff. They arranged for our wedding attire to be picked up and ironed, arranged for me to have wedding makeup and hair done; picked me up and took me to Orchid Spa for these to be done. They picked up my Hubby and brought him to meet me ready for the ceremony. They arranged for a photographer to capture photos of our afternoon/ evening and special day. We had the ceremony on a beautiful part of the beach, where we later cut cake, and celebrated with champagne and our wedding meal. We also were taken for a short trip around the bay on a boat, for more photo opportunities. It was a perfect day! We received the digital photos prior to leaving the island; was lovely to look at them on the plane home! The food on the island was superb, catered for all needs. For us, there was a great buffet selection of different meat or fish dishes, pastas, vegetables, salads, breads, soups, great breakfast selections from cooked breakfasts, different breads, pastries, fruit, and a wonderful selection of desserts from mini cakes, Ice cream to puddings… just couldn’t fault choices available at every meal time! We were blessed with great weather during our stay but if we hadn’t, we would’ve made even more use of the indoor air conditioned gym or games area. The badminton court was not air conditioned, so we only managed 15 mins in there after an hour in a cool gym! But was great nonetheless. As it was Easter, the island was quite busy. It was quieter in the first few days we arrived but soon became busier and more families arrived. We would’ve loved an area of the island to be adult only; working in Education, it’s nice to have the chance to escape children, but if there were more families around, you could always walk elsewhere. We loved our stay, and can’t wait to return again one day. Thankyou to all of the Bandos staff, Amar, Petru in the pool and sandbar, the lovely ladies that greeted us in the Gallery restaurant ( 159!) , the wonderful guy in the sea breeze cafe ( whose name we’ve forgotten so sorry, but had s pointy beard and was always smiling!) and the lovely guy in the orchid spa, who did a wonderful job making me feel a million dollars on our Special day… thank you to you all!

First trip to the Maldives has us addicted . Bandos ticked every box after s direct BA flight to the short boat transfer in turquoise waters. Instant relaxation in arrival as we checked in . Cold towels and an ice cold drink before we were tsken to our water villa. The Villa was heaven . Quality furnishings with an outstanding bathroom and own plunge pool. The island is clean and peaceful with most warming welcoming staff. We changed to s beach villa during our stay snd this was equally as nice . We took all inclusive so had no worries with a huge bill. Drinks can be expensive in Maldives. We found the selection plentiful and paid for the odd supplemented drink or food that wasn’t available. All dining options are excellent . Obviously more ambience if you choose to eat at the grill or huvan, however these are not included in AI but you get a very good discount . We had s massage in the dos , this was perfect in most peaceful surroundings . The water sports are fantastic and we can’t wait to get back paddle boarding . Next visit we are booked in a premium beach villa. Can’t wait for morning coffee overlooking the beautiful ocean . See you soon 🌴

Our visit to Bandos lived up to our expectations. The direct flight with BA was a plus, and the boat transfer worked excellently. The island is both very pretty and so peaceful. Our accommodation offered a huge bed and plenty of space, and a 1 minute walk to the sea. The gym was well equipped, and the staff football pitch a surprise but we enjoyed the inter departmental matches We went all inclusive and the food on offer was first class, catering for all tastes and spoilt for choice every day. The staff were outstanding, friendly and helpful. Whilst they were all excellent I would like to mention Marvel in the restaurant, along with Hussein and Lujan, and Yallapa at the Pool Bar. A wonderful break.

Great experience. The beaches are beautiful, with no crowd at all. The athmosphere was great for relaxing. The gym was well equipped. Everyone was very nice and helpfull. The food was good. Our favourite was Guru, who makes the besz cocktails at the Sand Bar, in the evenings, ( it is not a commercial, really great cocktails!)

This was the first time to Bandos, the first time being on a island ever in my life. It was a short decision and the best. It was a long way flying to Bandos but it was worth it every day been there. The first trip with the speedboat to Bandos was making us very excited. On arrival to the island, we were led to a reception area and offered cold drinks and refreshing warm clothing to refresh our faces. After 13 hours journey, this was very much appreciated. After a short wait, we were taken to our accommodation by a motorised buggy and our luggage followed shortly behind.

I couldn't stop smiling from feeling so grateful and thankful to be on such a beautiful island. The service was everything a person or families would expect on a vacation. Thanks to a wonderful young lady by the name of AFIFA MOHAMMED 💕 she made sure that we had everything during all this time and gave great advice for everything, she always set up the table so nicely for us, she really made us feel special, which made it hard for us to leave, and will definitely come back to visit. Hopefully we will see her again, i already miss her🌺💕. Thank you to the Bandos staff, the entertainment was just wonderfully enjoyable. Karaoke was fun and we had a chance to sing with a great singer who had a beautiful voice of Grace Sadora and an awesome Rock Band called “The Wood!”hopefully will see you all again in February next year!💕 but I'll ask for softer bed 😉. The only disappointment was the excursions were too expensive to experience on such a beautiful island. I would’ve loved to do more and watch or swim with the dolphins , but still had a great time with all inclusive. Thank you so much for everything. I'll miss you all🙏🤗

It is a perfect place to rest and relax with your couple or family. A very comfortable hotel, well conserved, despite being one of the first resorts around Maldives. The quality of the food is good, and the main buffet is well prepared every day. What we do a 5* stay is the hotel crew. They are friendly and always try to make your stay as great as possible. I want to give special thanks to Tanuj and his crew; they were always taking care of all the details, working really hard to make guests as happy as possible. You guys are rock stars. Thank you so much for your hospitality. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
