Behind the scenes with Bandos Island Resort

Bandos Island Resort

The second of our three locations for the World Swimsuit 2015 shoot in the Maldives was Bandos Island Resort.

Bandos Island Resort

Water sports, socialising and relaxing are three of the key aspects of Bandos with the extensive facilities catering for every niche. Our villas were situated right on the beach front, spacious round chalets with huge outdoor bathrooms - including an incredible bath/jacuzzi - and only a few short steps from your front door to the delightful water.

The water is really where it all happens at Bandos. With a magnificent coral reef drop-off only metres off the main beach, grabbing a snorkel and joining the underwater world of tropical fish, reef sharks, coral formations and rays takes a matter of seconds. The Bandos dive centre also caters for everyone from amateur to experienced scuba divers with guided outings, day trips and more on offer.

On top of the water there is kite-surfing, tube-rides, windsurfing and many other incredible activities or there's the choice to simply sunbath or float on top of the water.

The Bandos Today newsletter is delivered daily to your room inviting you to a host of activities at the resort. From Karaoke to DJs, movies and much more - it all takes place at Bandos! You'll never get bored.

Finally, the dining experience at Bandos caters to all tastes and budgets. A number of restaurants and bars are scattered around the island, offering delightful food and cocktails.

The World Swimsuit team only spent short time at Bandos, but it was packed with fun and memories. Enjoy these fun behind the scenes shots.
