Bandos Island

I stayed at Bandos Island in 2005. I can honestly say this was the best holiday I have ever had.

Although it is probably not the best island resort in the Maldives, staying in a jacuzzi beach villa is something special.

The service is good. Prior to traveling I was able to arrange a meal on a deserted island where I proposed to my girlfriend (now wife). This cost just $300 dollars including transfer and some absolutely amazing food.

Unique Quality: Jacuzzi Beach Villa is something special.

Well furnished, nicely decorated, fully equipped with excellent services. Bandos Island is perfect resort for holidays and makes some fun with your family. We had stayed for a week in Bandos Island during my family holidays. We had found everything well managed and in a mannered way. We stayed at deluxe room which was elegantly designed and had a great view Jacuzzi Beach.

The all staffs were very friendly and served everything in a mannered way. The food was superb especially Thai food was amazing. We enjoyed boating there especially this is good stuff for the kids. I recommended this resort for their excellent services and must visit again. I had booked this hotel through

Unique Quality: Services, Staff

Bandos, Oh I love Bandos thats why I'm going back again for the 5th time in 2008!! Its a great hotel for families, there's a fab creche, for the energetic there's a gym, tennis court, squash court, table tennis! The dive school is excellent and the house reef is fantastic for snorkelling and diving. There are 3 restaurants, the standard half board one, a grill overlooking the water, the fantastic sundowner bar and grill and the very posh (and expensive) Harbour Grill. The food is great, the staff are great. I love it (and so do my family). Oh and there's a fab new spa which is wonderful!!

Beautiful Resort

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 19, 2006

This resort is really nice. We stayed at a bungalow. Beautiful!!!Downstairs was the living room and a extra bed for my son. Upstairs was our bedroom with a queen bed. The bathroom was in the back patio. Yes!! very pretty and extrange. There was a jacuzzi and a gazebo was covering the jacuzzi. As I said the bathroom was in the patio so it had high walls. At the beginning I felt unconfortable going to the bathroom or taking a shower but really the bathroom was the best of this unit. It looks like it was recently renovated after the Tsunami. The food was also good. All the amenities are good. This resort is good for families that go with children. While I stayed there I saw children everywhere and they were so loud. Actually, if you want to relax you will hear one of them crying or yelling parents did not say nothing to the children and many people really go there to relax. Specially the first day, I got to my resort so tired!.I spent all night in the airplane we left home in the afternoon and we arrived at 8 am the next day to maldives. So I wanted to relax and take a little nap by the beach or the pool. No possible.

Lovely individual bungalows in quiet peaceful surroundings. Literally 3 seconds to the sea right in front of you. Spacious room and good size bathrooms - and we were in the cheaper version ones.

Unique Quality: Facilities on the island were great for those that love water sports or who like to relax by the sea or by the pool. Also a beauty parlour and indoor games such as table tennis and table football. Good bar and interesting karaoke

Directions: 30 minutes by motor boat from the airport
