Baros

5* out of 5 stars

Just a short hop via speedboat from Male airport, discover one of the best boutique resorts in the Maldives. A tradition of warm, professional service and exacting standards has seen Baros Maldives emerge as a multi-award winning resort offering an idyllic escape for couples, honeymooners and families.

A mesmerising turquoise lagoon circles this cosy coral island. Soft white sands form the wrap-around beach above which flutter lofty palmtrees, completing a quintessential picture of paradise. Tucked away in the greenery are the private pools that accompany the elegant Beach Villas, while the Water Villas also feature a private plunge pool – this time overlooking the ocean. 

The atmosphere strived for here – and achieved effortlessly – is serenity. With no motorized watersports to disturb the tranquillity it means you’re free to sit back, unwind and settle into a slower pace, a million miles from the stresses of modern life. You could opt for a private spa treatment, complimentary morning yoga class or sailing trip aboard a traditional local vessel. The island’s house reef creates excellent snorkelling and scuba opportunities and an expert dive centre will get you all set up for your underwater adventure. Be sure to sign up for the 'Diving By Design' programme which unveils no less than 30 dive sites within a 15-minute radius.

Evenings are for getting together and reviewing your day over a tasty dish and a drink or two. Baros Maldives’ hallmark dining venue, The Lighthouse Restaurant, is poised on a pavilion above the Indian Ocean and specialises in a temperature controlled wine selection to accompany its wonderful array of cuisines. And why not ask about the resort's romantic tailor-made dining ideas, such as sandbank picnics and piano deck dining?

Baros Maldives is committed to maintaining the utmost in-resort tranquillity and as such would like to remind you that families travelling with children below the age of eight are not permitted.
