We stayed in a standard room, very comfortable & a short stroll to the beach - perfect! I like some of the thought the resort has put into the room's facilities - tap outside to rinse the sand off your feet, a bar plug to ensure plenty space for charging gadgets, beach towels, umbrellas for when there's a shower, bottles...

Everything about this hotel is fantastic, the food, the staff, the beach, the entertainment, the excursions, the spa, the bats and the bungalows!! 1 week was simply not long enough.

Stayed here a few times when I worked in the Maldives. The resort is Ok but not one of the best on Maldives tho it is close to Male and the airport. Probably OK for families but not for Honeymooners. If you can get a good price then worth a visit.

We travelled in July with two small children (2,4) and stayed 5 nights at the Banyan Tree. We enjoyed our stay but in short - if it is your honeymoon - NO, if you get a good deal and you're brining kids - Sure. Positives: Nice kids club, good kids pool, children menu at the restaurants. Boat transfer is cheaper...

Just got back from 10 lovely days at Bandos! We loved it....! We went for the chill, the diving, the fact that there is a "free" Kids Club so we wouldn't have to worry about our little one while under water! :) We chose the B&B and were VERY glad we did. Highly recommend this option - the full board...

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
