A beautiful island and an amazing resort

Review by jberwae

It was our first time in Maldives and we immensely enjoyed our stay at Bandos. I went there for my birthday and fell in love with the friendly and relaxed atmosphere that’s present in the hotel and on the whole island. Everything was at high level of comfort and convenience, the territory is clean and well maintained and the staff did their best to provide you with whatever you might need and was always happy to help...

Special thanks to RIYA’s members: Taha who’s very polite and outgoing, helped us with many questions and was available at all times, as well as to Li and Mona. There is a wide variety of dishes available in the restaurant, the food’s really delicious - without a doubt you won’t stay hungry :D Even with covid restrictions we had fun and made memories on the excursions that were available, enjoyed entertainment in the evening, visited the wonderful SPA that hotel has, exercised in the gym (wasn’t crowded at all) and made purchases in the hotel Blue Coral shop - they have products that are made by locals which is amazing cause we could learn about native people’s life, their traditions and Maldives’ history through their work. Our room (Superior Beach Villa) was located right on the beach, so we had an awesome view all the time. Make sure you don’t miss the feeding of whale sharks and stingrays that’s held every evening near the bar cause it’s a lovely experience. The ocean water was so clean and clear you could see the reefs below your feet. The amount of palm trees and other trees growing on the beach definitely makes you feel like you’re Robinson Crusoe and are living in a natural habitat. We also saw flying foxes, herons and crabs - they’re not afraid of humans but still stay at the safe distance from you and seem to be enjoying their life there. I can 100% say it was one of the best if not the best travel experience of mine. Highly recommend Bandos and definitely coming back! :)

Lovely Resort - 9 days, 8 nights

Review by Gemelle California

We stayed for 8 nights, 9 days at Bandos, Maldives in early July. The resort is located close to the Male Airport and the boat ride is only 15 minutes. This is an important factor for us traveling in the rainy season as we could not risk not making it back to the airport if the weather acts up.

The property is very well maintained and beautiful...

The staff works really hard to clean up the beaches to keep it pristine. What we all see on the brochures doesn't just come that way. Someone put in a LOT OF hard work to clean up the dead coral and kelp so we have a picturesque beach to walk on.

We experienced a mini storm on the 2nd night we were there. We woke up and saw so many things washed on up the beach. We are always up at 4am, don't know why, and we get to see the sunrise and the beaches before clean up. Then after breakfast at 7am, the beaches are perfect again. We see them cleaning up every few hours too.

The buffet was worth every penny on this trip. We got FULL Board and it was absolutely worth it. Chef Amit was fantastic and he loved talking to our 12-year-old. The omelet chef was also fantastic. He knew us by the 2nd day and knew we always get 4 delicious omelets.

I also loved the smoothies at the pool. The server there was fantastic too. Although it is not customary to tip but we did at the end of our stay. We tipped everyone that went the extra mile for us and they are so grateful when they receive it. Housekeeping was fantastic too.

Thank you Bandos.

Best service we ever experienced!

Review by yasmina_yerastova

Staff made our stay unforgettable! Our roomboy Reesan made surprises in our room almost everyday, he was so kind and nice, always trying to help! He told us everything we needed to know about the island to help us with entertainment, showed some awesome places on the island and even brought a handmade gift on our check-out day. If you are staying at Bandos - ask managers to make Reesaan your roomboy, he is the best as a roomboy an person! We will really miss him. The hotel helped my husband to set up a B-day surprise for me! I had cake with my name on it, baloons, flowers! Waiters - Peeta, Humam, Haleem, Ibrahim were so sweet! It was more like we've found lots of friends, not just met some staff there. Special thanks to Ajay - the cook. He always helped us with the choice of food and it's always been amazing. Therefore, all the food was delicious! We loved it so much, so me and my husband gained some weight even though we walked and swam a lot lol...

Miss those cheesecakes and tiny cakes already :D We tried almost all of the food entertainment - special dinners. "Lobster dinner" - AMAZING, 10/10, worth every cent. "Grill dinner" - went twice!! Delightful meat, best raw tuna... Dinner at Yumi Yaki - was really fun! Cook is a real pro there! Spent 2 weeks there and will definitely come back for more! The reef is charming there - it was our first snorkeling experience and we loved it! Island was clean and all set for a great stay, staff - best people we've ever met, nature - unbelievably beautiful, villa (we stayed at Superior Beach Villa) really cozy (thanks to Reesaan again lol), transfer was really comfortable
