Baros Maldives

Best Experience: Honeymoon, Beach, Spa, House Reef Snorkeling & Diving

Updated May 2019

Baros is a perfect getaway located in the North Malé Atoll only a 25-minute by speedboat from Malé Airport. With a variety of villas to choose from, these very stylish settings make this the ideal island retreat for couples young and old.

Located on a beautiful private island with a crystal clear coral lagoon, Baros is a 5 * star boutique hotel in the Maldives that will surpass all of your highest fantasies of the "dream island". Surrounded by clean, warm waters and snow-white sands, with groves of coconut palms and fragrant flowers, this cozy resort landscape is really worthy of fainting. The team is serene modern rooms (including water villas), fine dining, a fantastic spa, a large swimming pool and water entertainment from a luxury yacht to diving and yoga.

Baros is one of the first luxury resorts in the country - four decades ago when communication occurred through the Morse code and the guests needed three hours by a dhoni boat to get to the pristine atoll beaches. Today, the natural beauty of Baros island still thrives due to local efforts to preserve the environment. You will have time to participate in an internationally recognized house reef conservation program, or go snorkeling with a marine biologist to learn more about vibrant marine life or just listen to wind music through the thatched roof of your villa and enjoy the splendor of seclusion in a tropical paradise.

A Villa Host is on call around the clock providing a discreet, personalised service making every stay hassle-free. The resort has both an EcoDive and a Marine Centre.

Eight villas have their own infinity pool, among that two Premium Pool villas are also equipped, sports jacuzzi sizes, have their own beach area and personal butler, ready to satisfy any your whim.

Here the privileged guests of the residence can expect a lazy holiday on four sun loungers, massages in the room, or you can simply call your personal butler 24/7 to drive for mojito, which you can then enjoy on the sun deck, a stone's throw from the sandy beach, making it the ultimate Maldivian luxury resort villa.

Baros Residence honeymoon 2018 trip

Baros Pool Villas and Premium Pool Villas have panoramic swimming pools, and the Residence has a larger swimming pool. Guests of other rooms can swim in the huge main swimming pool (85 sq. m.) near the Lime restaurant (open from 11 am - 6 pm) - the largest freshwater pond in the Maldives with at least a hundred meters of fiber optic lighting for night effect. On one side of the pool is a bar with drinks and canapes ... and where the staff will clean your glasses, if you politely ask. The lagoon is also a safe water area for a refreshing swim.

In 2018 a new category of rooms has been added and branded as Baros Suites. These Baros Suites are private, stand-alone villas providing guests with a modern, luxurious living space, complete with a spectacular, 6m by 3m swimming pool, a separate hot and cold water jacuzzi and a secluded gazebo that features a swing with a view of the ocean stretching to the horizon. In addition, existing Baros Water Villas, Baros Pool Villas and Baros Deluxe Villas have all been upgraded with new furniture, bright colours and high-quality materials to enhance guest comfort and improve each villa’s elegant style.

Baros Premium Pool Villa

Kids from the age of eight and older are always welcome in the Baros Maldives, although this romantic place is more "for adults" and the hotel has no children's facilities ... it's better without children. An extra bed for a child with two adults requires an additional payment of 50 percent of the price for the villa.

Baros Villa

Baros is an active participant in the coral breeding program, hoping to improve the underwater world, and to educate the guests' love for the marine life. Foodstuffs are also seasonal and is mainly grown on local beds.

This property is also rated for the best value in Male City! Guests are getting more for their money when compared to other properties in this city.

Snorkeling & Diving

For many reasons, Baros is a unique site for diving. The resort has two dive centers, including a marine biology center. Near the island there is an excellent house reef with abundant marine life, ideal for diving and snorkeling.

Around the island, less than 50 minutes by boat, scattered more than 30 world-class dive sites. In Baros, guests can not only learn diving, but also take classes in eco-diving, as this is the first eco-diving center in the Maldives. 5 stars PADI Divers Baros Maldives has been operating on the island since 1979 and was opened on the archipelago one of the first, and today with a qualified team formed of international instructors specializes in serving small groups with an individual approach. Baros Maldives stands for environmental awareness, and the resort's diving center is actively involved in the conservation of reefs.

Baros' house reef is known as one of the best house reefs in the Maldives. With a length of 300 meters, the coral gardens have easy access. The reef is dropped by ledges to a depth of 20 meters, where you will find the hypnotic world of corals with an amazing variety of a vibrant marine life. Expect to see blacktip reef sharks, turtles and many species of fish, including pelagics. In Baros is particularly popular fluorescent night diving, offering a look at the underwater world in a new light.


Set over the water, in the form of a circle, the gourmet The Lighthouse restaurant hides in the shade of a marquee, floating like a sail, which contrasts sharply with the day and glows at night. Lounge is an ideal place for a glass of champagne at sunset, and the restaurant's menu serves Asian and Mediterranean dishes. Intimate dining over the lagoon, the aroma of spice drifting through the night, Cayenne Grill, with thatched roof and open structure is a more casual love affair where food alternates with Maldivian, Indian and Japanese dishes in buffet style. In the Lime restaurant located on stilts above the water, all day you can feast delicacies of world cuisine from the global "a la carte" menu.

Cayenne Grill

With sugar-white sand under your feet and palms above your head, Sails Bar is a seductive bar to sip pomegranate Margarita, or selected sommelier world wines throughout the day and night. Live music plays every Tuesday and Saturday night and there is a hookah. The Lighthouse lounge offers a more cozy atmosphere for night drinks. Guests lounging by the pool can order cocktails from the roving waiters; pick from classic piña coladas, margaritas and daquiris, or order a more modern concocotion. We like the Baros Island iced Tea with vodka, shochu, peach and orange liqueurs, lemon juice, honey and green tea. A snack menu has dim sum, mini burgers, gourmet pizzas and sushi.

10:30pm for dinner at the Lighthouse and Cayenne Grill and Lime Restaurant. Sails Bar keeps the drinks coming until 11pm.

Room service is available on request 24 hours. The menu offers breakfast (including breakfast with champagne for two), snacks, lunch and dinner. The Light House and Cayenne Grill can whip up dinner in the room between 7pm and 10pm.

Outdoor patio-front tables are always the best places (take on the lower deck of Lighthouse, with the music of hissing waves). You can also dine in privacy in your villa, in the fresh air somewhere on the island, or on the romantic sand bank. On the theme of the dress code is recommended upscale beach chic.

Baros Piano Deck is a unique dining expeerience on a stand-alone deck isolated in the middle of the beautiful, turquoise lagoon – a symphony of fine cuisine served in exclusivity in the exotic setting of the lagoon. This deck, whose profile resembles a grand piano with wooden steps like a piano keyboard, is just minutes by boat from the resort’s shore with access only through prior reservation. With a muslin canopy billowing in the breeze and providing shelter from the sun, the Piano Deck is extremely popular with guests who want a different experience in sophisticated style. There is no permanent structure on the deck, making it possible to create the perfect backdrop for any occasion whether during the day or on a moonlit night. While the Piano Deck is more frequently chartered for a couple to share a romantic meal, whether breakfast, lunch or dinner in privacy, it has also been used as a venue for small cocktail parties, for yoga enthusiasts and for renewal of wedding vows for both newly married and couples commemorating a wedding anniversary. It’s ideal for a melody of Baros cuisine discreetly served on the deck in the lagoon under the stars.

Piano Deck Dinner Melody

Sports and Activities

At Baros there is a wide range of escapes and experiences to choose from. Serenity Spa offers a variety of relaxing wraps, scrubs and massages that guarantee the removal of stress and tension. While a lot of hotels offer a dawn yoga session, few rival the one at Baros. Book a private session and you'll be whisked across the lagoon by boat to a sandbank where the resort’s resident yoga instructor leads you in contortions as the sun rises out of the Indian Ocean. Otherwise, free group classes are held at 6am in the Palm Garden (every day except Sunday).

For those who prefer diving to downward-facing dog poses, Baros has its own diving centre which can get you geared up and underwater faster than you can say ‘salutation to the sea’. READ MORE ABOUT DIVING

Snorkellers can explore the house reef just off-shore, or if you'd rather stay above the waves, the water sports centre can arrange everything from wakeboarding to glass-bottom kayaking. Baros also boasts a range of day trips giving you the chance to explore nearby atoll islands, try a spot of fishing or hit the streets of the capital Malé for some sightseeing and shopping. The resorts two vessels, the Serenity yacht and the Nooma (a traditional wooden dhoni), are used for group sailing tours or can be privately chartered for romantic excursions.
