    Lovely Place

    I was pleasantly surprised with how my trip to Malahini Kuda Bandos turned out. The staff was helpful, the food was of a good quality and the all inclusive was a great deal. It is also very convenient to the airport so you don't have to worry about a long trip to your island after a long flight. Would definitely recommend as a nice getaway!

    Fantastic staff and service. The food is really good and creative with different style cuisine every day. Also arranged birthday dinner on the beach for my fiancé which was amazing. Beautiful location where you are o. The ocean with beautiful views and ten meters to the water. Good snorkeling around the island but also great snorkeling tours arranged by the team. Saw reef shark, stingray, huge variety of fish and also Manta Ray from a distance. Can highly recommend Malahini Kuda Bandos and hope to go back myself soon!!

    Wonderful place. The turtle snorkeling was incredible -- like being in a National Geographic documentary. The staff were extremely friendly & helpful. Food was superb. The place was beautiful. Lots of fun things to do, breakfast was always good. You feel like a jet-setter, yet the stay was affordable.

    Our rooms were very small, a bit disappointing as it was advertised as deluxe rooms.

    The resort is wonderful, it has everything that you could need, and is small so you can get to it easily. I love the family vibe it has to it, the staff are so friendly and have a great memory of who you are. If you are after pure relaxation with minimal effort then this is perfect. There is no pool, so you would have to be ok with sunbathing on the beach. In the Maldives, is there any other way you'd want to do it?! Snorkeling is seconds away from the beach and it is wonderful. Will definitely be coming again

    Gorgeous sandy beaches with crystal clear water! Service was very good. We loved the seclusion and privacy of the beach front villas. Meals in the restaurant were mediocre but breakfast buffet was amazing! A wonderful stay!

  • 2,0.Poor

    1) I believe that the advertisment is very misleading, as the overall features of the property do not correspond to the actual status of the resort  2) the overall level of cleaning is poor which also result in the production of bad smell from the bathrooms and in the front part of beach in corrispondence with the bar . 3) The status of the beach and immediate entrance of the water is hardly useful for swimming (irrespectvily of the water and weather conditions). 4) the mahini is not a family friendly property as predominantly indicated on your promotional material. 5) the construction work by my room was bothersome! 6) I feel very frustrated because of all the above has ruined my holidays.
