We loved everything about Bandos and it was the perfect new year getaway - just what the doctor ordered! we upgraded to a Jacuzzi Beach Villa and we loved the outside shower room and Jacuzzi and the uniqueness of this accommodation that was a step from the beach. Everyday the room was serviced, we were given fresh beach towels and...

Although a 4 star, the hotel reaches up to the 5 stars standards. Convenient location, 10 min boat ride from the airport. Amazing in-house reef with excellent snorkeling, better that other 3 locations we have visited in Maldives. Nice lagoon with white sandy beach all around the island. Very organized and well equipped diving center (PADI). They have a baro-chamber...

We stayed in the deluxe room which was big but a little tired looking. We took half board but ate in the other restaurants and paid for it as the main restaurant was like a zoo and very busy. The views are fantastic and the in house reef great for beginners

The transfer from the airport to the island was excellent. Our room was in a semi-detached bungalow with a separate sitting area and enormous bathroom. We chose the half-board option which, for two nights, was fine but I would not wish to be limited to this for a longer stay. I also had to see the doctor due to a...

Great place for R&R - 5 days is enough as VERY small island (15 minute circuit) - the main restaurant (Gallery) is good for breakfast but DO NOT eat there for dinner - very expensive $60pp for average self service buffet food. Sea Breeze & Huvan have great food and menus and much better priced & waiter service.

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
