I had my eyes set on another resort for our Christmas break but fee lucky that we ended up at Bandos!! Our flight from Singapore was going to reach Male late in the evening. The choice was between staying in Male and going to the resort next day or find a resort that we could get to even at 10pm...

Orchid spa was great i meant great, very nice place and so friendly staff. I suggest deluxe room or rooms with jacuzzi to stay. At all I liked this hotel.

We stayed 3 nights in the water villa, halfboard plan. On the last day, we checked out at 12 noon but our flight wasn't until 9:30pm. So at the reception, AMAR was kind and helpful to get us the best rate for a day use of one of the classic room. Pros: -water villa was spacious, very private -beautiful soft...

We stayed at Bandos twice. It was in Oct 2014 and May 2015. The standard rooms were very close to the beach. The food at the restaurant was good, nice snorkeling (a lot of baby sharks) and nice garden. We had great stays and will definitely come back!

Stayed for 5 days and it happened to be the perfect vacation for us. The resort was a perfect place to laze around and enjoy a quite vacation. Also, it had all the features to keep us occupied like snorkelling, kayaking and other water activities. Since it was our first experience at snorkelling, we were a bit cautious but at...

We chose Bandos as we were travelling with our 6 year old son and wanted a family friendly resort, not too far to travel to from Male, but with great snorkelling. Bandos fitted the bill perfectly, a great environment with an amazing house reef, and a nice pool area. We stayed in a deluxe room that was a few steps...

I would recommend visiting Bandos for 1-2 days since it is a very small island but perfect for relaxing. For someone who is passing by Maldives it is ideal since it is a 40 min boat ride from Male. Plus, you have all the usual activities to do such as snorkeling, scuba diving or sport activities within the resort. The...

We spent 5 nights at Bandos and we loved it. We travelled with a 4 years old and the resort is just excellent for kids. We arrived early in the morning and our room was ready which we really appreciated. We got a standard room which is big and had a single bed for our daughter. The room is very...

There is nice house reef so you can go snorkeling and diveing right from the shore. The place has to offer activities and attractions for kids as well so the hotel is family friendly. There are plenty of places to go if you prefer some privacy. Just to be reminded the the reef is bleaching although it may be valid...

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
