Guys, this island is amazing, we had our honeymoon there and enjoyed every second of it. We stayed in a standard room and the view was just amazing. Lots of sun.. it only rained twice and it was at night :-) I will definitely visit again as i truly miss it :(

I planned this trip after reading a lot of reviews on Trip Advisor for Bandos. Which is exactly why i want to be specific about a few things. While reading these reviews, one needs to be discerning about who's writing. Somethings would be common, so for eg, when the reviews said that Bandos is an amazing Resort with breathtaking views...

Just got back from Bandos last week after staying on the island for a week in a jacuzzi villa. The weather was really good, only rained twice in the evening. The jacuzzi villa was excellent, really spacious and the jacuzzi was wonderful. We stayed half board and found the choice of food to be excellent especially the 'Action Corner' where... More

We have just returned from 11 days in the beautiful Maldives at Bandos Island and can honestly say it was the holiday of a lifetime, having read alot of the reviews on here we really can't understand why some people have said what they have.

Firstly let me tell about this property, this was a true paradise island - white sandy beaches, spotlessly clean and an exceptionally efficient system. When I say system, it is about the process that these guys have implemented, for the entire length of our stay - for the life of me, I couldnt find one General Manager or a boss... More

Great place. Excellent dive centre. Really nice house reef. They let suitably qualified dive house reef without dive master if you demonstrate sufficient competence. Loads of black tips... As for the room, it was all you needed, being able to walk straight out onto the beach with the crystal water. With only 20 min speed boat from Male, we will... More

I flew in for a 5 day stay never having been to the Maldives before, and had no idea really what to expect. The whole island is the resort, and the rooms circle the island, so nearly every one faces a beach! I stayed in a standard room - which was so beyond any standard room I've ever stayed in,... More

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
