Spa and 4 restaurants

A swim-up bar and wading pool make pool play fun, while Orchid Spa offers a wide menu of treatments for adults and kids. Whether you choose the buffet, café deck dining, or sunset drinks over the water, the resort's 4 restaurants will help you fuel up for karaoke at Sand Bar.

Wonderful Atoll
we arrived early on Friday morning after a night flight from Qatar. A representative was there to greet us and a boat soon arrived to take us to Bandos Atol. We were greeted by the receptionist and all the paperwork was ready for us when we arrived and our room was ready. We just dumped our bags had an early lunch in the cafe ( good service and food),went to our room put on our swimming things and basically swam/ snorkeled for 4 days wonderful reef and lots of fish to look at. From our experience always take the all inclusive as it includes drinks and better food which we will do next time as they are very expensive otherwise. We would recommend this to any couple or family as a holiday destination. Just pack flip flops, a costume and some clothes to eat in and your fins , mask and snorkle you need nothing else

Private and luxurious
We arrived in Male. Got transferred to a private boat and taken to the island. Our cottage we had booked on the beach with private jacuzzi and out door bathroom. It was so good! Not cheap but worth the money
