Bandos Island Resort & Spa, Maldives

Posted by: Wen Ching In: Travel|Western Food

Not too long ago I had an opportunity to go to Maldives for a short trip. I went to the island of Bandos and stayed in Bandos Island Resort & Spa, which I thought was an excellent resort for a city escape.

Upon arrival into Maldives I was excited to see the island from above, the sea colour was something I’ve never seen in my life before, it was painted with different shades of turquoise blue which was impressive and mesmerizing.

Bandos Island Resort & Spa, Maldives
Maldives consists of 1,192 coral islands grouped in a double chain of 26 atolls and located in the North of the Equator in the Indian Ocean. The climate of the country ranges between 24 °C and 33 °C throughout the year, similar to Malaysia.

Upon arrival at Ibrahim Nasir Airport, I took the boat to the resort. The journey took around half an hour and we arrived at Bandos Island Resort.

I checked into my room and it was nice and decent, albeit slightly old.

While my friends went for snorkelling in the sea, I strolled around the island on my own, taking photos of the island.

The water villas were even more impressive than any other chalets. I definitely hope to stay in one of these in the future!

Sundowners Bar, Bandos Island Resort & Spa
When my friends finished snorkelling, we decided to grab a bite in the Sundowners Bar, which was located along the beach.

The bar is open daily from 7.30am until midnight. The environment was nice and shady, which allows one to sit back and relax while enjoying the scenic view of the sea.

Pizza Au Fruit De Mare, Bandos Island Resort & Spa
We had a Pizza Au Fruit De Mare to share. Priced at USD17, the pizza was topped with fresh prawns, fish, mussels, onions, chopped chilli, cheery tomato and cheese, it was fresh and delicious!

Chicken Kathi Roll, Bandos Island Resort & Spa
I also had a Chicken Kathi Roll for USD13. The roll was filled with chicken tikka, lettuce and cucumber and served with French fries. The roll was delicious, very freshly made and the fries were crunchy and good as well. Overall the food was good at the bar but their service can be improved.

Colourful Bird, Bandos Island Resort & Spa
While dining in Sundowners, we saw this colourful bird feeding on a packet of sugar.

Jefrey had the Omelette cooked with tomato, onion, chilli, ham and cheese for USD7. The dish was served with sausage, grilled tomato and fries. It was quite good, a filling and satisfied breakfast for him.

I had the Peprika Cheese Toast. Thin slices of bread were toasted with mozzarella cheese, onion and egg and served with fries. Although nothing extraordinary, the cheese toast was nice and decent.

Before leaving the island, we visited the souvenir shop. It was a wonderful experience for me in Maldives and I am looking forward to visit the island again! For more information about the resort, please visit their website here.

Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely
long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had
written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything.
Do you have any tips and hints for beginner blog writers?
I’d genuinely appreciate it.

First of all I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
I was curious to find out how you center yourself
and clear your head before writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts
out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to
15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how
to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Kudos!
