Lovely Place
I was pleasantly surprised with how my trip to Malahini Kuda Bandos turned out. The staff was helpful, the food was of a good quality and the all inclusive was a great deal. It is also very convenient to the airport so you don't have to worry about a long trip to your island after a long flight. Would definitely recommend as a nice getaway!

Wonderful place. The turtle snorkeling was incredible -- like being in a National Geographic documentary. The staff were extremely friendly & helpful. Food was superb. The place was beautiful. Lots of fun things to do, breakfast was always good. You feel like a jet-setter, yet the stay was affordable.
