Baros Maldives, Maldives

Maldivian sophistication in spades


Cocooned in luxury


Set on an intimate coral island not too far from Male (but far enough for the stranded-on-an-island experience), Baros Maldives requires next to no effort to get to, and to get use to, for that matter. Celebrating 40 years of excellence and Maldives' third resort to open, the island is naturally abundant in every sense; its lush vegetation and foliage is second to none, it sports a renowned house reef, and of course, luxury and service comes in spades. Chilled champagne on arrival, more at breakfasts and then again at departure, need we say more? 


North Male Atoll, Maldives
The resort is within easy reach; the breathtaking journey by speedboat from Malé International Airport is just 25 minutes; expect to be in your villa within 45 minutes of landing at the airport


The 350 x 300 metre (give or take a metre) half-moon shaped coral island is fringed with a postcard perfect white sandy beach, calm lagoon and a gorgeous house reef (one of Maldives' best) just 30m from the shore


2014 was a busy year for Baros, the resort now boasts a seamlessly stunning infinity pool on the edge of Lime Restaurant's dining deck. Spanning nearly 90sqm in size the pool is generous and inviting, but more importantly, none of the island's natural foliage was disturbed in its construction - to quote Glenn Murcutt, it touches the 'earth' lightly

Lime Restaurant – lagoon edge dining serving champagne breakfasts and contemporary Maldivian delicacies and international favourites throughout the day
Cayenne Grill – enjoy fresh grilled seafood, wood-fired pizzas, teppanyak and tandoori specialties under the lagoon facing thatched gazebos
The Lighthouse – think epic sunsets teamed with delectable creations like Foie Gras on Warm Brioch Glazed Apple, Calvados Shallot Jus and a well-stocked wine cellar; you can have it all on the open lower deck or venture upstairs for a tented open air elegance.
Sails Bar and Palm Garden – this is a cocktails and light lunches, feet-in-sand, bums on cushioned armchairs under the shade of towering palms relaxed garden eatery. If you're there for their weekly evening buffet, be sure to try the Sri Lankan Hoppers dish, a lightly fried crispy coconut egg basket served with condiments (yes I know, it doesn't sound fantastic but it is!)
In-Villa Dining – on demand 24/7

Destination Dining – design your own island dining experience in your villa, on a private sandbank, by the beach or on the resort’s 19m long traditional Maldivian sailing dhoni, Nooma. We loved our private lunch on the nearby private sandbank, what a treat it was!

The resort's 300m long house reef can be accessed directly from the beach for easy-peasy House Reef Diving and snorkelling; with a gentle gradient that slopes down to 20 metres, the reef is home to black tip sharks, turtles and a host of colourful fish species.
