This was our 12th visit to Bandos. We flew Emirates from Gatwick, flights were great on arrival at Male, the visa cards had to be completed in the airport as none were available on the plane, which was a tad fraught, but afterwards everything was efficient as always. Not long and we were back at Bandos. Check in was interesting,...

Stayed here for a coupe of days and wish I had stayed longer. It's a great introduction to the Maldives, as it is a very close water ferry ride from the airpot island, whereas other islands require an expensive flight and much more time to reach. The staff were all very friendly, and my room was perfectly comfortable and clean....

Never Bandos again in Maldıves. They don't know how to greet a guest. All they care about is the money. The moment you arrive they wait you with calculator to add whatever they can to the bill. Food is not good and not clean. Swimming area is limited because of reefs and rocks. Don't pay up front because they won't...

We were there in April. Absolute paradise. The people were lovely, the facilities better than I expected and the snorkelling was brilliant and you just had to walk off the beach to get to the reef. Will definitely be going again.

Our first trip to the Maldives. We originally booked a deluxe room, however, whilst the room was extremely spacious and absolutley spotless, the walls were thin and, as the family next door had a baby, we upgraded to a Beach Villa - more than worth the money! The villa was right next to the beach and in a great location...

Me and my wife visited Bandos while the children went skiing. It is a truly lovely island where we went snorkelling every day and visited other islands and Male. We stayed in a jacuzzi beach villa which was just right for the two of us. Each morning we would open the villa door and take a few steps then straight...

Really lovely island resort. We were upgraded to a Beach Villa, which was superb and the little beach area in front of the villa was idyllic. The villa had an open air bathroom and Jacuzzi area, which we loved, but if you are scared of lizards and insects this might not be the best choice of accommodation for you. Drinks...

It was our second time, we recommend Bandos for parents looking for a Maldives island and holidaying with kids, our 5 and 3 year olds loved kids club and made loads of friends over half term. Brilliant staff at kids club also babysit, great kids activities. They did a special Easter day and party for kids- we were very impressed....

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
