ust back from Malahini Kuda Bandos Resort photos

It is a budget resort. We paid USD$225 for a 3-person deluxe room with half board. Return speedboat is USD$85 per person, only 10 minutes ride from the airport. It was my 6th trip to Maldives. It was a pleasant trip.

Pros:

Very nice and clean budget resort.

Services are very good.

Buffet food OK

Can see many fish and small sharks while snorkeling.

Short speedboat ride (10 minutes)

Cons:

no swimming pool

Not enough divers for dive boat trip

Beach dive is average

Beach chairs are mostly dirty but you may use beach towel to cover it.

Excursions are expensive

We also paid USD$30 per person for return boat fees to visit its sister resort, Bandos Resort.

Thanks Travelem. This is interesting to see as we had considered Malahini for March this year but were wary of it being so new and untried. It looks very modern.

If anyone books this resort, don't book classic or garden room. They are too crowded, no seaview and has mosquito problem.

Superior room and deluxe has partial seaview. Beach villa has full seaview and outdoor bathroom. But outdoor bathroom also has insects problem.
