During Covid times we asked all customers to contact us by email only. This worked very well as we could prioritise response times and ensure we had a full record of conversations. For these reasons we would like to continue with 96% non-telephone contact - if you feel a call is necessary, and cannot be dealt with by email, please first send an explanatory message with any questions you wish to ask and we will call UK numbers or provide our numbers for non UK residents.

The island of Bandos is a perfect setting for that romantic getaway or those two weeks of bliss away from work. The sense of calm and serenity the island emanates is truly other worldly. The gentle lull of the sea, the whistling breeze, and the rustling of the palm fronds on the beach will help transcend you from the hurly-burly rigours of daily life.
This aural feast, complimented by an all colourful visual one, where the turquoise of the lagoon, the lush green vegetation, the pearl white beaches, azure blue sky and generous offerings of golden sunshine inspires in us the question, did heaven and earth meet?
There is a lush tropical landscaped setting on an island that is 183,180 square metres totally devoted to a relaxed resort lifestyle with only 225 guest rooms.
The island is fully encircled by pearl white beaches, clear turquoise blue warm water under a never ending azure blue sky blessed with abundant sunshine.
Bandos offers you a wide choice of accommodations, however, comfort, luxury and convenience are the hallmarks of all the 225 rooms.
From the ultra-exclusive and luxurious Water Villas, to the Jacuzzi Beach Villas with their beach-hut inspired design and en-suite Jacuzzi, or the Garden Villas designed to cater for those who wish to remain in close proximity to nature, the accommodation options at Bandos reflect a diversity of tastes and requirements. In a similar vein, the simple elegance of the deluxe and standard rooms are for those who simply seek to experience the Bandos way of life.
Location: Only a 15 minute speedboat ride from the international airport.
A large, lively island. Facilities relatively basic but a great island for a family holiday.
Atmosphere: An active island with lots going on. Families are extremely well catered for here and the service is great. Not recommended for a romantic getaway.
Rooms: Rooms have been refurbished relatively recently and are reasonably well equipped. The Standard Rooms are ideal for families as it is possible to have adjoining rooms. Some Beach Villas are situated along a better stretch of beach than others.
Dining: The buffet has a good selection but the quality can vary.
Activities: The dive base is impressive, one of the best even, and accommodates every ability. The snorkelling here is also great - it is possible to snorkel all the way around the island. The childcare here is really good for those with little ones.
