The Bandos Experience

Lapped by the vast expanse of the Indian Ocean, the island of Bandos is blissfully marooned a world away from the hurly-burly of daily life.

The turquoise of the lagoon, lush green vegetation, pearl white beaches, azure blue sky and abundant golden sunshine create a feeling of perfect tranquility. Everyday stresses will melt away as you are transported to a haven of pure calm and serenity.

From the moment you arrive you will receive a warm Maldives welcome and the friendly, attentive service that has earned Bandos the reputation of the ‘Island of Hospitality’.

Conveniently located just 7km from Malé International Airport, our idyllic resort has a total of 215 rooms, sumptuous dining and a wealth of leisure options – a perfect setting for a romantic getaway or peaceful escape.

We have multi-lingual staff and facilities ensuring we are a destination where people from all over the world come to relax and unwind in a multi-cultural atmosphere.

Guests have the benefit of our Dive Centre with professional staff who will guide you on an exploration of the spectacular underwater world of the Maldives and our Medical Clinic with a decompression chamber for complete peace of mind.

Our fresh water pool, with wading pool for children, provides a comfortable area to relax, and for the ultimate luxurious experience, take a trip to our Orchid Spa and indulge in revitalising Asian therapies.
