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 had booked an all inclusive beach room. The room overlooked the beach, and we went snorkeling daily twice! The coral reef is fantastic and very easy to navigate in even for beginners. Reading books on the sun lounger, placed all over the beaches was our favourite pass time. The view was fantastic. The all inclusive pack got us amazing buffets 3 times a day at the gallery restaurant, and also High tea at Sea Breeze Cafe. The all inclusive package also gave us access to unlimited drinks! We had drinks at the below places. 1. Pool bar - you can sit on bar stools underwater with jaccuzi bubbles around you, relaxes all your muscles 2. Huvan - best sunset point, with 270 degree of view of the deep sea 3. Sea breeze cafe- very breezy, refreshing and also you get to see stingrays and sharks that come to feed in the evening. 4.sand bar- sports lounge feeling with Libe action of sports, dance nights, live band and even a DJ night on different days, with a pool table to spend some chillzone time. 5. Gallery restaurant- you can have drinks along with your meals. A special thanks to the bartender Bavan who served us at Sea Breeze cafe and made such perfect drinks and recommended the best cocktails to have at all of the above locations! All drinks were Very refreshing and gave a nice high!

I booked superior beach villa, The hotel look good and the staff are very friendly. There's few things has to be mentioned: Impressed: 1- the island has variety of shops ( jewelry, clothes,art, small grocery..). 2- there's activities schedule (weekly & daily). 3- big dinning hall. 4- there's no waiting if your room is ready you'll be checking in once you arrive. ( I checked in 9am, i didn't get charged for early check in). 5- the food is delicious. 6- providing mask and PCR test. 7- the wi-fi is good and it's almost cover the whole area but sometimes disconnected or slow. 8- providing free umbrella you'll finds it at your resident and other locations. 9- there's air-conditioned lounge to stay after check out. Unimpressed: 1- the bed and floors so stiffy makes noises whenever you step or filp. 2- the mattress stiff (hard). 3- the path from the villa to the reception/ restaurant are a bit dark. 4- the dinning area doesn't fall on the sea (no view) 5 - no slippers. 6- they don't give copy of the bill if you buy something. 7- the prices so high and expensive i.g( snorkeling cost 67$ , the equipments has separated fees rent 20$ , buy 70$ ) 8- room dinning has extra fees for delivery. Tips: - take photo of the bill or recorded on your phone notes to track your spendings. - bring spray/ coconut oil to prevent mosquitoes bites. Or you can ask the housekeeper. - wear light color clothes and long sleeves. - bring extra blanket. - bring your snorkeling equipments
