Offering excellent value for money, the Bathala is a paradise for scuba divers and snorkelers alike with crystal clear waters and one of the best house reefs in the area.

Amazing start to our honeymoon

We loved Sandies Bathala, everything on the island is so beautiful and clean. The vibe is so relaxed, the beach and sea was sublime and the staff are so attentive. With particular thanks to Waheed who had our table and drinks ready every day and also Bond for keeping our room so clean and tidy and we also loved the flowers on the bed...

Thank you so much Sandies

Holiday of a lifetime with friends

Review by Anners2015 Lincolnshire, United Kingdom

Wow great choice for first trip to the Maldives

Everything & more and can see they have done a lot of work to rectify some things when they first opened & we were meant to go .

Water bungalows were the best as no one walks in front of your room . The further out your water villa is the better the depth of sea for your snorkelling is advised.

Great snorkelling and felt brave when swimming with sharks , turtles , baracuda , it was like swimming over your own aquarium! It was a bit choppy when we went but in 2 weeks it only rained alone Pm and overnight sometimes .

Plus points - ALL the staff just can’t do enough and given I’m someone who struggles with certain foods the chefs ( especially Amith ) were so kind and considerate which was very appreciated.

The reef was amazing and dive team were helpful

The choice of food and quality was amazing and always hot !

Mohammad the Barman made our holiday with a great sense of humour!!!

Rooms were clean and daily serviced

Iram the Kuoini rep despite not seeing him was AMAZING & always got back to us .. wish I could’ve posted more pics

Pool guy was brilliant as well and well maintained!

Loved fruit bats , Ginger the cat 🐈 & the Herons who joined me every morning to watch the sun rise !

Very few negative points :

Check your all inclusive drinks package - sorry but their house white red and rosè was awful ! No sparkling wine and you couldn’t change yer package once there !

We had a fridge - but you paid for anything in it ....

we weren’t tempted as we complain all first week that it wasn’t working and never got fixed or changed !

No room service

Felt for some guests as sadly some beach rooms had nothing but sand bags outside their rooms !

The Italian reps were focused on a heavily Italian based own clientele & didn’t get any support from them at all .. the evening karaoke and disco in our view was loud an aimed just for Italians and our friends had a room near the bar and noisy until late

Anyway the catering and bar staff made it for me !! Thank you all

Just had to be realistic ref feedback ..,

Our stay at Sandies Bathala

Review by Sumitdec Kolkata (Calcutta), India

Great rooms, lovely sea and excellent views. Never seen this kind of clear water before.

It has all elements for a break from hustle and bustle of life.

Refreshing activities by staff is a surprise.

Beware of the sun, it burns very bad later in the day.

Just beautiful

Review by Angela C Weybridge, United Kingdom

We stayed at Sandies Bathala for 2 weeks in December just before Christmas and it was amazing. When we were choosing a hotel we couldn’t find any reviews about the food at Sandies Bathala and I have to say it is amazing. The restaurant is a buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner...

For breakfast we had freshly cooked omelettes, or fried eggs - on the buffet they have the usual bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms, beans, pastries, lots of fruit, toast, bagels, pancakes, french toast, cheese, meats, bread etc - they also have some Indian type dishes but sorry I don’t remember the detail. For lunch and dinner every day they have a pizza station and a pasta station which is amazing. Also Meat and vegetable curries every day, salads, fruit, along with other beef, chicken and vegetarian dishes. All the chefs were friendly and happy to help. This is one of the best buffets I’ve ever been to, and am perhaps a bit biased as my brother is a chef who has worked in top hotels so have been lucky to taste amazing food in the past. So a big thank you to all the chefs! We had an over water villa which was beautiful, although if being a little picky i would have to say we were kept awake a few nights with the waves crashing into and moving the villa. Last but not least, all of the staff were very friendly, happy and always wanted to ensure you were having a great holiday.
