This is a great property. Period. It is an island-hotel with 70 rooms only. When I think about all-inclusives, I generally categorize them in 3 big groups: 1. Party all day. Adults only, fun and drinks happening all day long. Plenty of eating options. 2. Family oriented. Games, a lot of kids around. Many pools, eating options. 3. Quiet. Can be family or adults, but it means relaxing at the beach, food served at fixed ours, nobody really partying, most guests in bed well before midnight. This is clearly a (3). It is a great place for relaxing at the pool and/or beach, swimming, snorkeling around the property (you can walk around the island in 10-12min), and scuba diving. If you want this, it is hard to beat. The island favors sustainability, so all guests have meals in a single restaurant (local supplies favored), paper products (such as napkins) are minimized or non-existent, and water is used quite efficiently (the island has its own water desalinization plant). There is one house beer, white, and red wine as part of the all-inclusive, unless you want to step up and consume other drinks at an additional cost. There is a bar open till midnight, where you can hang out and have a drink or two while there, snacks are available (small sandwiches, popcorn). Staff is great, always helpful. Great store to buy some sarongs and get them tailored to your taste - right there! Communication was clear mostly at the front desk or through email. Great stay overall!

Nice Overall
The place is a few miles from Male. We had to travel to Sandies via a seaplane (cost about 325 USD per person - round trip). The seaplane however did not drop us till the destination, the hotel sent a boat to a common point at the sea. It is a very beautiful island. The hotel is the only thing on this island so it is better to opt for an all-inclusive package. We stayed here for 4 days. It is indeed beautiful. There are water villas and beach villas. It's a very nice location for people who like to snorkel or dive. The place is clean and eco friendly. If you are planning any water activity or avail spa facilities, you have to book a day in advance to get a slot. To snorkel or dive, they also want a minimum number of people to participate. The hotel provides dental kits only on request. Other amenities found commonly in all hotels are available. We were told that laundry would be done at additional charges. There is an in-house doctor who can provide a valid PCR certificate in 24 hours. Positives - Location Crowd - Decent Cleanliness - rooms are cleaned twice in a day Logistics - hotel timed the seaplane and boat rides perfectly. Food - widespread buffet Negatives - Phone helpdesk - Wasted international calls to get hardly any info. The tone was bad and sarcastic. Better to write them an email and wait a day to hear. Waiters - although most hotel staff were pleasant, some waiters in this place could put you in a bad mood, can learn a thing or two about hospitality

Tiny little paradise
At first the island seems tiny, simple resort, one bar and one buffet restaurant for daily meals. The buffet is nice with something for everyone, the pizza station is amazing! But what made our stay so amazing and special was the staff, the island has very unique vibe. The house reef is amazing! We had individual beach bungalow (some were detached), the room is very basic but you’ll spend most of the time outside anyway. Everything was clean and well kept.

Do not think twice, just book, you wouldn’t regret
My stay @ Sandies Bathala was amazing. At first I was skepticle about having to pay extra for the seaplane, but I am glad that I did, it just made the experience even more exciting to be flown to a private Island. Can’t say enough good things about the staff, from the host to the cooks to the reception, everyone went over and beyond to make sure you were enjoying your stay. I stayed in the water villa for 2 nights. The villas are huge and in perfect spot to see the sunrise, different species and colors of fishes, corals, snorkeling etc. There is also an infinity swimming pool with a huge deck for parties. On Fridays there is a cocktail gathering to watch the Sunset. You can walk the entire Island in 5mins. Not to mention the food is amazing. Let me start with breakfast. There is a dedicated cook assigned to make your omelette or eggs and he is really good. The assortment of dishes for lunch and dinner is really good. From soups, to appetizers to the main course and dessert. I love fish and there was always 2-3 different recipes. I have to mention that I had a problem that required me to book additional nights just for security in case I couldn’t make my flight, but thank God I got my problem resolved and was able to make my flight. But I didn’t realize that the reservation I paid for through was unrefundable. Sandies reservation person together with the agent at got me my refund and I really appreciate that. Thanks to Didi, Iyaas and everyone.

Amazing place! We stayed in a overwater villa for 7 nights and can't say any better than it's perfect! The island is small, which is amazing for relaxing, without the rush of big hotels. The snorkeling around the island is so beautiful, you can see turtles, sharks, rays and many many different kinds of fish. The staff is super nice and is always looking forward to make your experience the greatest possible. Thank you for this unforgettable vacations!

L’hydravion a été réservé par l’hôtel, les horaires étaient parfaits. Chambre dispo avant l’heure d’arrivée et après l’heure de départ pour profiter plus longtemps. Nous y avons bien mangé. La chambre était propre, le ménage fait 2x dans la journée (sympa pour le sable). Hôtel très calme, une bulle hors du temps, parfait pour se reposer

ATENCIÓN: leerlo atento. NO HAY TELEVISIÓN, en ninguna parte. El resto es PERFECTO. Todo ha sido muy bien gracias a personal y a la dirección a la gerencia las playas son limpísimo solamente hay botellas rotas que espero que van a limpiar. Un buen sitio para bucear tiene mucha vida marina.
