Stayed for a week in the quiet Deluxe room 257, island close to airport with about 10 mins boat ride but also bring some occasional plane noise but it is OK.

We've stayed at Bandos for 10 nights and we just loved it. Upon arrival we were greeted with a lovely ice-tea and the check-in process was quite fast. We've stayed in the deluxe room no 279 witch was only 10 steps away from a gorgeous small private beach. The staff was very friendly and they speak good english, the food...

I visited here on a day trip from another island , I loved it so much I visited twice. The sands pure white and fine, the beach was very clean. My day consisted of relaxing snorkelling and feeding the fishes, which surround you and take food out of your hand. The reefs are beautiful too and plenty of different species...

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
