Malahini Kuda Bandos resort opens
Malahini Kuda Bandos resort, Bandos Maldives’ sister property, welcomed its first guests in late July.
Located in North Male’ atoll, the resort can be reached by a 10-minute speed boat ride from the Ibrahim Nasir International Airport.
The resort offers 82 rooms in two categories: Sunrise Beach Bungalows and Garden rooms.
Spread over the east side of the island, the beach bungalows offer a spectacular view of the sunrise. With direct access to the beach, the surrounding foliage offers privacy and creates a feeling of seclusion. These bungalows also boast open air showers.
The Garden Rooms overlook the gardens of the island and feature simple interior and minimalist furniture. These rooms come with either queen-sized or twin beds along with convertible sofa beds.
All rooms are air-conditioned with hot and cold showers, mini bar and free Wi-Fi. Tea and coffee making facilities are available.
The resort’s main restaurant Maagaa serves international cuisine, including breakfast, lunch and dinner. Located on the beach, The Bluu serves light meals, and is open late into the night.
For a change of scenery, guests also have the option to visit Bandos Maldives resort next door to sample any of the four dining outlets available at the resort.
The resort’s bar is located on the beach, offering great views and everything from the classics to customised cocktails.
Malahini Kuda Bandos also boasts a spa and gym.
Taking advantage of its proximity to great dive sites, the resort’s PADI-certified instructors will take guests on guided dives and snorkeling trips. Several watersports activities, such as catamaran sailing, Jet Ski, para sailing, canoeing, windsurfing and surfing are available at the resort’s marine and recreation centre.
Excursions on offer include island hopping, sunset dolphin cruise, and big game fishing. Evening entertainment include movie screenings and parties on the beach.
