BANDOS MALDIVES

Bandos Maldives opened in 1972, renovated in 2005, is located in North Male Atoll, around the island 1530m, is a medium-sized resort island in the Maldives. Beach score 4/Max 5, 100% round the island, average width 5m. Snorkeling 5/Max 5, House reef 100% round the island, distance to the beach 20m.

Bandos Maldives is a five-star resort, total number of rooms 215, room density 1.2/1000m². Bandos Maldives operates 3 restaurants and 3 bars. The spa is self-operated. The diving center is self-operated.

One of the largest resorts in the country, Bandos has developed and expanded enormously since it opened as the second resort in Maldives in 1972. The island is highly developed and resembles a well-manicured town centre rather than a typical tropical island. Many love it for that reason, though it’s perhaps not ideal for travellers seeking rustic escapism.
