In a country like Maldives which is driven by the tourism industry, it is important for luxury resorts to bring something new to the table, in the ever so competitive industry. For them, capturing the essence of Maldives is vital – and many resorts try out different methods, but among all these, Baros Maldives stands out.
Ringed by a sandy beach and a living house-reef, just 25 minutes by speedboat from Ibrahim Nasir International Airport, Baros is an award-winning boutique resort renowned for discreet, personalized service excellence
With the Maldivian traditions of heartfelt hospitality taken as an inspiration, Baros Maldives is a tropical island dream come true; fine cuisine, a garden Spa, a gym, an overwater swimming pool, individualized excursions and underwater experiences and many more add up to the perfect getaway in the Maldives.
There are 45 Beachside and 30 Water Villas in Baros Maldives – providing guests with choices that they can never forget. Built by craftsmen using sandstone and timber to blend with the natural environment and the inclusion of contemporary furnishings work together to provide a truly timeless ambience.
Apart from having a private veranda or sun deck, sun loungers and a teak dining table for two, each Villa has a spacious, teak-floored bedroom featuring a king-size bed with soft cotton sheets and pillows, as well as a vanity desk and a large sofa or day bed. All have direct access to the beautiful lagoon by the beach from the veranda or by wooden steps from the sun deck. Many have private pools.
The dedicated Food & Beverage team in the kitchens, restaurants and bars of Baros Maldives are praiseworthy as they attend to every whim of guests – be it in-villa, or anywhere on the island or even on a sandbank, the Piano Deck over the lagoon, or during a dhoni cruise, they are here to pamper you with splendid service and fine food and wines.
The Lighthouse Restaurant is the hallmark of Baros Maldives, an over-water pavilion with a white sail pinnacle roof that serves as an iconic beacon visible long before the island comes into view. It has been acclaimed as one of the best restaurants in the whole of the Maldives.
For guests it is a wonderful experience to sit on The Lighthouse Deck above the Indian Ocean, while rays and fish swim below, enjoying the memorable moments of a gourmet dinner. At The Lighthouse, every meal is one to remember.
In addition to the Lighthouse, Baros houses the Cayenne Grill – with palm thatched gazebos for dining above the lagoon, the Cayenne Grill is the place for a light lunch from a wood-fired pizza oven as well as salads, wraps, paninis, and for combination platters of grills of the world: Teppanyaki and Tandoori.
A holiday at Baros Maldives could be considered as an opportunity to discover more about the Maldives, whether sharing an experience with other guests or on a personalized tour for two especially arranged by the Guest Experiences Team.
Baros offers different excursions, a highlight of which include voyaging on Nooma – a traditional handcrafted Maldivian sailing dhoni. It is also possible to get away from it all by spending the day, or having dinner, in a secluded sandbank in the middle of the ocean.
And for the romantics who visit the resort, a special renewal of vows ceremony could be arranged – with a very Maldivian twist! The Piano Deck, a small wooden deck shaped like a grand piano and poised above the translucent lagoon, is a unique location for a celebration.
All in all, Baros Maldives is your go-to destination when it comes to luxury holidays in the Maldives!
