Ok this was our delayed holiday/moon and we'd agree with all the positive reviews and would write pretty much the same so let's see if I can come up with any new tips, apologies if replicated elsewhere :s Tour operator was Thompson from the UK, no issues, paid up front for extra legroom seats but the long haul flights regular...

This place typified paradise, not in a cheesy tacky way at all, but literally the meaning of the word. It's so great that we returned two years in a row, never in nearly 20 years of holidays with my parents have we returned somewhere again. In a summary id say the island had a friendly, family feel to it, but...

Beautiful white sand..clear blue ocean..the place is a dreamland. We stayed at the jacuzzi beach villa and the first thought that came into mind was that the money we paid was worth it. The private jacuzzi is one of the best point of the villa..u can easily enjoy an evening in the jacuzzi with a bottle of wine. Food is...

We spent two and half days at Bandos after a diving safari at the Maldives. The beach was clean and an isolated spot was easily found. We had a great time watching the baby black-tip- sharks. Snorkeling was also very good, saw at least one shark every time!!! The trick is to find the side of the island that is...

Beaches have been my favorite ever since and so Maldives was the honeymoon destination for us. Mesmerizing crystal clear blue beaches with white sand, the most suitable place to visit if you want to spend a lonely time with your mate.

We stayed at Bandos from the 18th to the 25th April and I count myself as a hard to please customer so when I read all the comments before going, I really wanted to see for myself.

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
