My husband and i travelled in September 2011 for our 2nd year wedding anniversary. We'r both beach bums and really enjoyed our stay. The resort is close to Male and we were happy to find the beach villas were quite comfortable. Super resort to try out snorkling, scuba diving and just lounging in hammocks by the beach :) Food was...

We have stayed at Bandos four times, with our young children, and it was just the perfect beach holiday. Yes, it is a long way to travel with young children, but for guaranteed sunshine, warm sea and not a car in sight, it was perfect for us. Also with young children it was easy to keep going back knowing we...

We had a wonderful time. Food was great. Snorkelling was exceptional. Kids club was great. It is an older resort, but that also meant mature trees and foliage and lots of shade. We upgraded to a jacuzzi beach villa and felt it was money well spent. Everything people say that we read in the reviews was accurate. Tip: Unless you...

this was my first trip to the Maldives and I was impressed, we went bed & breakfast as we like to do our own thing, but we realised it's easier to go all full board, as we just ate in the bar most of the time, we had a beach villa with a hot tub & it was lovely, clean...

This is a bite-sized resort, good for a weekend away from Male. The room was nice, the beach gorgeous, snorkelling was just amazing. I felt comfortable here alone as a woman. No one bothered me as the only single woman there. The food was mediocre, but fine, not outrageously expensive either. Very good value.

May 2012. Just returned from a week stay B&B at Bandos Island Resort. The Airport transfer is very quick at 10minutes but no aircraft noise at the Resort, other than the odd sea-plane. The rooms (Deluxe) are very good and better than I expected to be honest, the bathroom is very spacious and the walk in shower etc was excellent....

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
