    We loved it here! The food was good, the room was clean, the workers were so nice! I think Cynthia was her name...she worked at the counter at the restaurant. She learned my son's name and had our room number memorized. She always spoke to us every time we saw her. We did 3 excursions - glass bottom boat, island hopping, and fishing. This island was the perfect place to relax and spend time with family and we will certainly be back.

    We loved everything. Bandos is a stunning island, but the kindness and courtesy of the staff makes it even more beautiful. We Got an upgrade for a beach villa. The food at the gallery restaurant was great, but we also enjoyed (and loved) eating at Huvan’s and the Sea Breaze. Amazing! I suggest you to eat the crêpe suzette and the tuna steak. The japanese restaurant with his cooking show is unbealivable! We hope to come back very soon. It was an unforgettable journey. Thank you Bandos!

What people are saying about Mystical Maldives

We are extremely satisfied with our stay in the Maldives on a beautiful small Island with a beach, in bungalows over the water. My family enjoyed the water activities. The calm scenery of the seaside was very relaxing. Our trip was perfectly arranged by Mystical Maldives. It’s the best travel experience we’ve had so far.

Radu M

We had the best time here in the Maldives as part of a three-week trip around Asia. The island is amazing and beautiful with crystal clear waters and wonderful sea life. Our agent from Mystical Maldives was very accommodating and gave us the best hotel choice. To sum up, it’s a very lovely vacation.

Simon W Smith

It was a very remarkable vacation we had in Angaga. My husband and I were able to spend our one-week honeymoon on a perfect Maldivian island. It would not be possible if it wasn’t for Mystical Maldives who helped us arrange this unforgettable experience. Thank you so much.
