Discover authentic Maldivian luxury at Baros Maldives. A discerning resort in every way, travellers are treated to a world of comfort and style in a tropical ocean setting.

Baros Maldives first welcomed travellers to its shores in the early 1970s. When locals travelled from island to island on wooden dhoni sailboats and the Maldives communicated with the world by Morse code, it was a time when only those "in the know" spoke of this paradise island. While much has altered since then, Baros still remains a place of astonishing natural beauty.

Being one of the Maldives' first resorts, Baros established the bar for other luxury resorts to aspire to. Now, Baros boasts six distinct villa dwellings, each with its own unique style and personal charm. Stay in a water villa with a secluded plunge pool and timber veranda overlooking the lagoon, or for maximum intimacy on the island, enjoy the Baros Residence with its tropical garden setting, luxurious furnishings, and personal butler services.

With a unique take on modern cuisine, water-facing open-sided pavilions serve up waterside alfresco dining with a contemporary twist. From romantic dinner cruises, gourmet menus and sunset cocktails, Baros will leave your tastebuds yearning for more. Still, fine dining is not the only highlight at the resort, as a fully-equipped gym and various other facilities will keep guests thoroughly energised, entertained and relaxed in equal measure.

Featuring the first EcoDive Centre in the Maldives, Baros Maldives has worked hard to protect its rich waters and lush jungle environment, through a number of sustainable and eco-friendly initiatives. This beautiful island, which is only 25 minutes by speedboat from the Maldives' international airport, is an easily accessible haven that everyone deserves.

Location:

The island of Baros is located in the Republic of the Maldives, at the heart of the Indian Ocean. This paradise in the Maldives is found in the southern reaches of North Malé Atoll, a stunning seasidescape unlike anywhere else on Earth, but within a short speedboat ride of Male' international airport.

Baros lies near the international airport, so you won't have to wait for a seaplane to take you there. While visitors heading to distant atolls must wait for a transportation flight, you'll be able to depart from the island airport by boarding an enchanting 25-minute speedboat trip directly to your villa.

On request, speedboats depart the airport and travel to Baros at all hours of day or night - and the employees are prepared to meet you at the airport as soon as you arrive. Your holiday in Baros begins as soon as you touch down.

Environment:

Just a few decades ago, this was an uninhabited wilderness of coconut palms and tropical undergrowth, surrounded by an untouched beach and a pristine coral reef. For more than four decades, Baros have carefully nurtured the natural eco-systems of the island, the lagoon and the majestic underwater world beyond.

Environmental protection is a top priority at Baros, even behind the scenes. Water is recycled so it can be used, after purification, for irrigation of the garden, LED lighting systems with a longer lifespan and lower electricity consumption are standard, All air conditioning units are CFC-free and guest villas are fitted with a heat exchange system that heats water used for bathing.

What's more, Baros organises awareness programmes with tours to neighbouring villages and uninhabited islands, and diving and snorkelling activities to promote understanding of ecological issues.

Guests are urged to respect the reef and to refrain from breaking off, or even touching, any pieces of coral. It is illegal in the Maldives to collect any coral, shells, or other souvenirs from the ocean. Buying any souvenirs made of turtle shell is illegal in the Maldives, and such souvenirs will be confiscated at the airport and result in a fine.

Water Pool Villas:

The turquoise of your plunge pool blends with the blues of the lagoon. A stairway descends to crystal-clear waters behind the daybed on your sun-drenched veranda, with the house reef awaiting discovery.

Baros is a haven, both inside and out. You will discover all of your requires in your private cocoon over the water - luxurious bedding, comfy furniture, and rich teak floors - as well as every modern convenience. Your tropical overwater getaway provides you with precisely the right amount of seclusion while also allowing easy access.
