Baros Maldives Holidays 2016-2017

Luxury Maldives Holiday

Circled in a ten-minute stroll, this stunning, world class island is where style meets simplicity.

With its dazzling sands and coral lagoon, Baros is possibly the most picture perfect of all of the Maldives islands. An intimate resort providing a complete luxury escape, its contemporary, elegant facilities include the architecturally spectacular The Lighthouse restaurant with its tented white roof, and the exclusive Piano Deck offering yoga, massages or dinner on a deck isolated in the middle of a sparkling lagoon.

There’s a real focus here on the bespoke – as well as restaurant dining, there are private dining options available at any location of your choice; spa packages can be tailored to suit you; the diving is ‘by design’; and experiences range from personalised adventure to pure romance. A main swimming pool was added in 2014 – and in true Baros style, it's not your average pool. The overwater deck surrounding the Lime Restaurant has been extended to create a large overwater infinity pool; the perfect way to introduce a shared pool to this small island without compromising its natural, tranquil environment.

75 exquisite villas include extra touches such as wine chillers, yoga mats and dedicated villa hosts. The Deluxe Villas are individual thatched bungalows a few feet from the water’s edge, whilst Baros Villas have a four-poster bed and private sun deck overlooking the ocean. If you enjoy taking a dip in your own secluded pool, then it’s worth opting for one of the private pool villas.

Restaurants & bars
Baros has given some serious thought to the menus and locations of its dining options. A restaurant with a real ‘wow’ factor, The Lighthouse is its crowning glory. A rarity in the Maldives for its elevation and panoramic views, it is architecturally spectacular; its tented white roof sail-like over the turquoise lagoon. Head upstairs to the lounge with its glorious views over the lagoon and let the sommelier recommend you a fine wine before heading to the restaurant below to dine on gourmet cuisine, such as fresh seafood with Asian flavours.

The Cayenne Grill offers casual al fresco dining and a satay bar, and at the overwater Lime Restaurant there’s all day dining with buffet breakfasts and à la carte menus later in the day. Sails Bar is a stunning open-sided cocktail bar, with an impressive range of drinks and plenty of seating outside under the palms.

Spa & Wellness
Set within a tropical garden, the Spa at Baros Maldives specialises in bespoke packages. The four private spa suites are perfect for couples, each with an outdoor relaxation area, rainfall shower and bath tub. There’s also a Thai Sala for Thai massages, a garden relaxation sala and a yoga pavilion.

Diving
There's a glorious house reef perfect for snorkelling. There are also 30 dive sites reached within an hour of Baros, and a variety of dive courses are available at the dive school. 'Diving by Design' is a diving programme personalised on request by the diving instructors, certified as the first EcoDive resort in the Maldives. A resident marine biologist also provides expert information for diving excursions on the house reef.
