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.

An awesome place for honymoon with really friendly staff. Activities are a bit costly but would recomend dolphin cruise. Food can be customized to what we want. All inclusive food option can be repetitive. I would recomend trying other restaurants to get variety.

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.

Having been to the Maldives few times, this is the worst resort we have ever stayed in by far. Booked it because of the many good reviews and ignored the bad ones. It looked very price appealing given it is the season and other resorts were very expensive and over priced so we
