Bandos Island Resort - Maldives

A short boat ride away from Male, Bandos resort offers divers the opportunity to combine a week long liveaboard with a few nights shorebased.  A small round island, Bandos has been receiving guests for over forty years.  With excellent diving on its doorstep and a recompression chamber on the island, Bandos is a popular spot for all levels of divers.

This resort is recommended for families looking to have a full range of activities, including a kids club, while on their dive holiday.  Babysitting can be arranged with the hotel reception. If you want to have an active holiday within close range of the airport, Bandos will suit those needs well.


Bandos is a small resort with only 225 rooms.  There are rooms to suit every budget, from traditional water villas, exclusive jacuzzi beach villas or quiet corner Garden villas. There are also standard or deluxe rooms if you plan to spend most of your time enjoying the many activities on the island.

With several restaurants to choose from, including one serving Thai specialties, a sunset bar with excellent stone oven pizzas, and another serving up tasty pastas and salads, there is plenty of variety.  Guests may choose to book only breakfast, breakfast and supper, or all-inclusive.  All of these will be served at the main restaurant with a buffet style service.  

Try your hand at windsurfing, wakeboarding or kayaking, work up a sweat in the ultra modern gym, or spoil yourself at the spa.  There are two pools, one of which is for younger children.  The reefs around the island are excellent for snorkeling and there is plenty of beach space, so you never feel cramped.  As the resort has been around for several decades, the island greenery is very lush, providing excellent shaded areas for a nap in a hammock mid-afternoon.
