Other facilities

Bandos Maldives houses one of the longest established dive centres in the Maldives, which provides a range of PADI certification courses and trips to over 40 dive sites. If you prefer to snorkel, paddle above the spectacular house reef, which is considered one of the region’s best. You can rent snorkels, canoes and paddleboards for free at the nearby water sports centre; plus, you can go water skiing, jet skiing and wakeboarding for an additional charge.

The resort’s Clubhouse sports complex is the place to work out, take a spin class and play table tennis and board games in the entertainment area. Otherwise, you can play beach volleyball, badminton or tennis. Meanwhile, children between the ages of 4 and 12 can spend time at the supervised kids’ club, complete with an outdoor playground and indoor nursery. The activities schedule covers arts and crafts, cooking lessons, treasure hunts and story time, in addition to magic shows, live music and fashion shows.

The hotel’s freshwater pool has a swim-up bar and plenty of loungers for sunbathing. You can also stroll along the white sand beaches, spot reef sharks on the jetty or withdraw to the Orchid Spa for a classical Maldivian massage. The spa also offers beauty treatments, romantic spa packages for couples and junior spa packages for children. You can relax in the steam room and sauna before or after your treatment. 

Dining information

The Gallery Restaurant is the main buffet-style restaurant that opens for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For a change of scenery, visit the Sea Breeze Cafe on the water’s edge and order pizza or hamubergers from the a la carte menu. Alternatively, savour grilled meats and seafood at The Grill Bar, indoors or on their overwater deck overlooking the Indian Ocean.

You can watch chefs skilfully cook your food on the teppanyaki hot plate or dine at the end of a pier at The Huvan. There are also opportunities to arrange private dining experiences, where a private chef serves you exclusively on the beach.

Swim up to the Pool Bar, located in the main pool, and enjoy a juice, ice cream or milkshake. The beachfront Sand Bar will keep you refreshed with tropical cocktails and other beverages by day. At night, it turns into a hotspot, hosting karaoke events, live bands or discos.
