Baros Resort, Maldives

Baros Maldives is a stunning award-winning property which is wholly Maldivian owned and managed and was the third hotel to open in the Maldives. Today it offers understated elegance with a sense of authenticity, value and local culture.

Baros Maldives is set on a coral island lush with coconut palms and tropical greenery yet surrounded by white, sandy beaches and crystal clear waters.  Located in the North Male Atoll, Baros is just a 15-minute speedboat ride from Male International Airport.

There are 75 villas in total made of natural stone, tropical wood and coconut palms with many different styles to choose from, from the Water Villas built over the lagoon offering direct Indian Ocean access to Pool Villas with their private pool.  Top of the range is the Baros Residence offering all you could need from private pool, to private spa and butler service.  Amongst other amenities, all the Villas have king size beds, daybeds to chill out, Lavazza espresso machines and a personal wine chiller with bottles selected on arrival. Some have complete open-air bathrooms, whereas others have contemporary bathrooms with rainfall showers. All of them are supremely comfortable, light and airy.

For gourmet food, the Lighthouse offers the best of fine dining in a stunning setting with 360 degree views of the ocean.  In addition to this main restaurant, there are a number of other dining options to sample during your stay.

Activities at Baros Maldives centre around the ocean with deep sea diving, non-motorised watersports, excursions on board a traditional Maldivian sailing dhoni or snorkeling just some of the activities available.  Or you may prefer to just pamper yourself in the excellent spa which offers an extensive range of treatments and therapies.
