    Our opinion

    “Surrounded by its own spectacular house reef, Baros offers understated luxury in tropical surroundings”

    Hotel description

    Baros Maldives is ringed by a house reef teeming with marine life, in the shimmering waters of a shallow lagoon. Elegant villas, created from timber and sandstone, are poised over the translucent lagoon or nestled discreetly among exotic blooms by the beach, ensuring perfect privacy and seclusion. The villas include relaxing daybeds, Lavazza espresso machines and a personal wine chiller with bottles selected on arrival. There are no motorised water sports close to the resort, nor a main pool area, thus evoking an atmosphere of pure tranquillity. One of the highlights of Baros is The Lighthouse, a contemporary fine dining restaurant showcasing the freshest seafood as well as modern fusion cuisine. An elegant Martini and Champagne bar offers 360-degree views of the ocean accompanied by the light sounds of jazz. There are also two other original dining venues and a cocktail bar. Baros Maldives is an excellent choice for snorkellers and divers who can enjoy ‘diving by design’ in this amazing oceanographic environment. The dive team works closely with the resident Marine Biologist who conducts awareness presentations and leads snorkel and reef tours. Water sports include canoeing, catamaran sailing, windsurfing and even coral planting. The relaxing spa offers a wide variety of treatments and daily yoga classes are held in the air-conditioned overwater pavilion or on a private sand bank in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Alongside all the activities on the island, it is also possible to arrange excursions on a traditional dhoni or luxury motor yacht to include dolphin-spotting, fishing or just purely relaxing. The resort’s 19-metre Dhoni offers the opportunity for romantic sunset dinners or private snorkelling trips for two. Another highlight is a private sandbank picnic. Baros Maldives was ranked amongst the top 10 luxury hotels of the world by Trip Advisor users in 2011. We agree this is a fabulous choice for romantic couples looking for plenty of activities to keep them occupied.
