    Not a genuine 5-star stay! Lackluster service fails to meet expectations.
    Cons: My stay at Malahini Kuda Bandos in February was a mix of highs and lows. The hotel's prime location near Male and Hulhumale offers convenience but lacks the expected Maldives views. Despite branding itself as a five-star establishment, it falls short, especially in facilities and dining. Service falters, with inflexible check-in and check-out times. Despite availability, I was denied a later check-out. The lack of flexibility and customer-centric focus is disappointing. While individual staff like Fifi stood out, the overall management approach is lacking. Malahini Kuda Bandos fails to deliver a true five-star experience, and I caution against booking until these issues are addressed. This review aims to inform decision-making, highlighting beach access issues, the gap in achieving a five-star rating, and disappointing management. My experience won't change, but I hope it helps others make better choices.

    A very beautiful country to visit.
    Pros: The location is near the airport and the ride there is very easy and short. The food is really delicious and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The beach is amazing and you can do snorkeling on your own.
    Cons: I booked a night at a villa and expected to have access to the beach as it was stated in the villa description. Unfortunatelly, I had the villa without the ocean view since the trees blocked all of it. It was a beautifull experience anyways and we enjoyed it. I just had plans to take pictures for my anniversary with the ocean behind me.

    The resort has a speed boat scheduled at a particular frequency. Thus one may have to wait for sometime at the airport. Checkin was smooth. The rooms are very good. The home reef/coral starts 2 feet from the beach. Thus, nice for snorkeling. However, you do not have a beach where you can walk till your waist due to the coral. The food was not that great. We took it all inclusive. The breakfast spread was nice. I cannot say the same for lunch and dinner. I would say it was very average or even below average. Do not take all inclusive. They have restaurants where you could order. I think that would be more efficient. Checkout was not that smooth. I have a feeling that Maldives still has some learning left on hospitality. In general, not everyone. Not even the immigration says 'welcome to Maldives'. If you compare the resort staff with a similar resort in Thailand or Malaysia, the people there really do everything to make you comfortable and feel welcomed. I did not see the same in Maldives. It could also be the culture in general or could be that they did not like me.

    Esperienza magica e fantastica, ben sopra le aspettative! Resort bello, sempre in ordine e ben organizzato. Camere ampie e personale sempre disponibile per ogni richiesta. Il cibo poi davvero sopra ogni aspettativa, sembrava quasi di essere a casa. Un particolare aspetto vorrei dedicarlo al personale di sala: persone super attente e alla mano, in particolare questo soggiorno è stato speciale grazie a Dipak, Sourav (che fa una pasta strepitosa) e sopratutto all’impeccabile Anil!

    We booked a holiday package wherein we didn’t expect great things in this beautiful resort. Aru was indeed helpful from the beginning from giving us a complete information about the amenities and we requested if there are any available room that we could upgrade and he recommended a new villa and secure the room for us. Great food reasonably priced and excellent staff. Devi, Vanesa and the rest of the crew were prompt and cordial to us. Spa experience was exquisite all of us were amazed with the tropical relaxing ambiance. Silvia and Novita were good the massage was totally relaxing. Overall experience I can say one of the best vacation I ever had.

    Отдыхали в начале 2024 года, впечатления свежие. Хороший бюджетный отель (по меркам Мальдив). Остров небольшой, но уютный, персонал вежливый, в номерах чисто, каждый день чистые пляжные полотенца, по вечерам разные развлекательные программы (живая музыка, караоке, танцы и тд). |Остров сам по себе небольшой, но места более чем достаточно, лежаков хватает всем, пляж чистый, свободный. Единственное что надо учитывать, так это то что вокруг острова кораллы и без специальной обуви войти в воду достаточно проблемотично, но благодаря кораллам возле пляжа много разноцветных рыб, даже лично акул видел (где-то с метр), кто-то видел даже черепах.|Питание очень достойное, каждый день свежая рыба, разные мясные блюда, разнообразные фрукты, выбор напитков по все включено тоже достойный.|На острове львиная доля отдыхающих это иностранцы, при том половина из которых пенсионеры. |В целом для спокойного отдыха более чем достойно, для любителей тусовок и активного отдыха будет скучновато.

    I recently stayed for one night at the Malahini Kuda Bandos in February, and I must say, my experience was a mix of highs and lows. The hotel's prime location, extremely close to Male and Hulhumale, is both its biggest draw and drawback. While it offers convenience for those in transit, it lacks the quintessential Maldives postcard views and sense of isolation. From this tiny island, one can hear the seaplanes constantly flying above, and glimpse the cityscape, giving more of an urban vibe than the expected coral beauty and endless sea vistas. If you seek the true essence of the Maldives, this isn't the island for you. However, if proximity to the airport is your priority, then this might seem enticing. Despite its current four-star status, the hotel ambitiously brands itself as a five-star establishment. However, it falls short of this mark, particularly evident in its facilities and dining options. The beach, a highlight of any Maldives stay, is scarcely represented in the room views or promotional material. The reality is disappointing – either rocky shores or artificial sand mounds greet guests, a far cry from the picturesque images advertised. The guest demographics, predominantly French and Russian, aligned with the accommodation offerings, which struggle to shake off a lower-tier hotel vibe. Admittedly, the sunrise villas and suites boast excellent standards, but a true five-star experience encompasses more than just luxurious rooms and amenities. Service and customer attention play an integral part, and unfortunately, this is where Malahini Kuda Bandos falters. For an island hotel catering to short stays, flexibility should be paramount, especially concerning check-in and check-out times. However, my experience indicated otherwise. I conditioned my reservation to this flexibility, which seems obvious. Before confirming my booking on Booking.com, I had called the hotel specifically to inquire about the possibility of an early check-in and late check-out. Despite this proactive measure, upon arrival, I encountered several issues regarding the timing of my stay. Who wants to arrive in the Maldives in the morning after a long journey and wait 5 or 6 hours before being able to check into the room (at 2 pm)? Who wants to be kicked out at noon before a long journey with several layovers and a flight departing 7 or 8 hours later? This might be understandable for an establishment located far away and constrained by seaplane flights. However, it's not an advantage for a 5-star hotel situated right next to the airport. Hotels typically respond with "subject to availability," which is a catch-all phrase avoiding a direct response, whereas reservations should allow for anticipation rather than subjecting the guest to waiting or forced departure once they're committed to their booking and stuck on the island. Despite the availability of rooms on Booking.com the day before and after my stay, I was informed upon arrival that I would have to wait for four hours before being able to check-in. While I did appreciate the gesture of an upgrade to a suite to mitigate the inconvenience, the inflexibility regarding the late check-out the following day was disappointing. Although several suites and sunrise villas were still available on Booking.com for the same day, I was denied a later check-out, despite reasonable expectations given the circumstances. It was allegedly fully booked… Either Booking.com allows reservations that won't be honored, which would seem surprising and particularly concerning, or the hotel was particularly inflexible. I even took screenshots of Booking.com at 12:00 PM while I was supposed to check out of the room, which was still available for booking at that time... Furthermore, a slight adjustment to the departure time, even by just an hour, could have been made by adapting the housekeeping schedule to accommodate potential later arrivals of future guests, rather than rigidly enforcing a 12 PM checkout. even this suggestion was met with refusal—12:00 PM is 12:00 PM. This is indicative of the treatment you can expect at this "5-star" establishment. This lack of flexibility is further underscored by the numerous paperwork signatures, including acknowledgment of an upgrade, which also contrasts with the practices of genuine five-star establishments like the nearby Oblu Lobigili, which operates without a reception desk… I was even told that I could write whatever I wanted about the hotel, indicating a disregard from its management. Indeed, if they find other unsuspecting guests like myself who buy into the glossy photos, the management not be concerned about the lasting impression left on customers. However, for a limited time only… Because considering the treatment of guests, a nice room and an upgrade (which attempted to compensate for the lack of early check-in that had influenced the reservation) don't make for a true five-star experience at a hotel that lacks a customer-centric focus and is still far behind overall. The gardens are beautiful, but it takes 5 to 6 minutes to walk around the island, where boredom may set in. Customer service lacks flexibility and fails to consider the clientele that a genuine five-star establishment should cater to. The island's proximity to the airport demands a level of flexibility and human consideration that makes all the difference. However, I must highlight the smile and attention of "Fifi", a Tunisian staff member, who was the only one to care about the situation and understand the hotel's shortcomings. I thank her and distinguish her from her supervisor and management. They should take a leaf out of her book… Those who wish to stay here will be disappointed, while those looking to transit in a five-star resort may want to look elsewhere until genuine five-star management exists, and the hotel lives up to its rating. Others may find it satisfactory, but they won't be experiencing a true five-star stay, regardless of the room decor. Flexibility should be a hallmark of a hotel located a mere 10 minutes from the airport. While I appreciate the efforts of individual staff members like Fifi, whose empathy stood out, the overall management approach leaves much to be desired. In conclusion, Malahini Kuda Bandos falls short of delivering a true five-star experience. Given its status as a transit island due to its proximity to the airport, the management's failure to address issues of flexibility and guest-centric service is particularly disappointing. I would caution against booking a stay here until these concerns are addressed. Transparency in reviews like this is crucial for informed decision-making, and I hope my experience helps future travelers make better choices. I suspect that this message, which highlights the absence of beach access along the suites and a large part of the island, the significant gap that remains to be bridged to achieve a five-star rating, and the highly disappointing management that failed to recognize that the hotel's shortcomings should be offset by exemplary customer service and flexibility, will prompt the hotel to come up with excuses, insist on the upgrade I received, claim that Booking.com was misleading, and ultimately deny responsibility. You're free to believe them, it won't change anything for me, I won’t be returning. However, the sole purpose of this review is to potentially influence your decision-making process, as I would have appreciated having this information before making a reservation; I would have chosen differently...

    Was really cool experience. Really liked the atmosphere of the hotel, the service. All the food is very tasty. Be sure to try the floating breakfast in your room. The hotel is suitable for a romantic vacation with your soul mate, as well as for a vacation with friends.

    The room was cleaned twice a day very nicely by Hassan. There was a lot of variety in the food at Maaga. Dipak, Saurav, Amdadul, Inshan and the team made sure they gave us fresh, hot vegetarian food. Vanesa was always warm and the service at maaga was great thanks to Eni, Jeena, Ajay and the team.

    We booked a holiday package wherein we didn’t expect great things in this beautiful resort. Aru was indeed helpful from the beginning from giving us a complete information about the amenities and we requested if there are any available room that we could upgrade and he recommended a new villa and secure the room for us. Great food reasonably priced and excellent staff. Devi, Vanesa and the rest of the crew were prompt and cordial to us. Spa experience was exquisite all of us were amazed with the tropical relaxing ambiance. Silvia and Novita were good the massage was totally relaxing. Overall experience I can say one of the best vacation I ever had.
