Bandos Island Resort & Spa

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 otherworldly. 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?
