Certificate of Excellence
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.

Dear Tarun K, We are absolutely delighted after reading your review! Thank you for taking your valuable time to share your Bandos Maldives experience with our fellow travelers. We are located only 15 minutes from the airport, transfers are pre scheduled as per the given flight details by the guests upon confirmation of their booking. We ensure smooth check in with no further time wasted as we, like all our guests want no time spared for our guests holiday to begin. Deluxe Rooms are a great choice for families, however Jacuzzi Beach Villas are more popular with a lavish and more intimate deco. Our house reef is beautiful with an abundance of colorful fishes to be discovered, we are glad to hear you enjoyed snorkeling every day! Our club house offers various recreational activities to be enjoyed through out your holiday. Dolphin Cruise is one of the most popular excursions as it delivers an amazing experience. Thank you for your feedback on our Vegetarian food options, we will certainly take note of it and continue to assist our guests with their meal preferences. We will convey your sincere gratitude to Amar, Shifah and our chefs for their warm hospitality toward your family during your stay. Thank you for choosing Bandos Maldives for your Maldives holiday, we would love to see you again in the near future. Perhaps this time you could try our Dive center for a delightful Scuba experience. Best regards, Ismail Rasheed.

Too many bad mamnered smokers who even leave cigaret butts on the kids club area or the beach. Didn't get warm welcome at the kids club. Food at the buffet just average nothing more. Sealife is good. Swiming pool temperature is way too high. Not at all refreshing to jump in at
