We stayed here in Dec 2011 and had a relaxed and laid back holiday.. the resort is beautiful and we received a warm welcome on arrival.. after some briefings on arrival and check in we were on our own at the resort.. We had to find our way to the room too ourselves with the help of the resort map...

We only spent one night on Bandos after a 10 night dive live aboard trip before returning home because it's very close to the airport in Male. We had booked a standard room and upon check in we were told we had been upgraded to a garden suite. I thought, great, but when I asked about it's location and quietness...

We did have an enjoyable time at Bandos but a word of warning - the beaches are nearly gone! We stayed in a standard room which was spacious. The bed however was very hard. The standard rooms also require quite a walk to actually get on to the beach - they are not located on the beach or directly opposite...

It's the Maldives, it was amazing. The reef was beautiful and the snorkelling all round the island is excellent. Staff in the restaurants and bars across the island are friendly and would do anything to help you and make your stay pleasant. Pools are well maintained, as is the gym. Everything you buy on the island gets added to your...

Wonderful relaxing holiday thanks to the friendly staff and facilities.Our room was a standard room but very adequate and kept spotlessly clean by our young lad.There was a good choice of food and restaurants though we did tend to favour the Sundowner for our evening meal.Although all prices were in US dollars it wasn't a problem to us, but the...

Bandos was our seventh Maldivian island resort we have visited & I have to say, in some ways one of our favorites being a non pretentious natural resort. Being around twenty minutes from the airport means you can be checked in, unpacked and on the beach (or in my case snorkelling the great house reef within two hours of landing...

I loved Bandos. The island is stunning and you get a real sense of isolation when you see that little dot in the middle of the Indian Ocean. I only went for a week which for me was enough. I get a little bored with constant sun bathing and I ended up playing volley ball with the hotel staff. Scuba...

Went to Bandos with my then 15 month old daughter after being invited to hijack my parents' dive holiday. We had a wonderful time.

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
