Our first trip to the Maldives and this place is amazing and great value for money.We stayed half board as we didn't think we needed to be all inclusive as we went without the kids! The drinks are quite pricey and the food was really good so we probably should of done all inclusive. Food in all the restaurants was...

If you want somewhere near to the airport for a relaxing holiday then this is a good place to stay. Not our favourite but without the hassle of waiting for another small flight. We stayed in a Jacuzzi villa over a year ago now but kept forgetting to write a review. Seats in room-look good but not at all comfy....

Dear Leximonkey, We are really grateful for your review and to have you stay with us last year! And as you mentioned, one of our key strengths lie in the closeness of our property to the airport and our house reef. We are glad you enjoyed the house reef and the beach. Normally you would see more than just turtles...

Ok, let's take a deep breath and try to forget all we could see before in Maldives to give a fair note to this resort. Not easy. Comparing is always the worst enemy of a tailor made feedback, so.. if you visited some 5 stars resorts in Maldives before... you cannot be happy in Bandos. I cannot note the transport...

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
