baros house reef: snorkeling with sea turtle

27 August, 2023

Most people come to the Maldives to relax, soak sun on white sandy beaches, and drift in the clear pristine waters. Baros Maldives resort offers this and more. This iconic private island retreat is the perfect balance between luxurious relaxation and the adventures of a lifetime.

We list here five unmissable experiences that will add an edge of adventure to your perfect island holiday:

1. Aboard the Nooma

Nooma, the traditional Maldivian dhoni, offers adventure out on the water in a romantically, classic way. Nooma is the perfect vessel for an authentic local experience whether that be reef snorkelling adventures, sunset sailing or a romantic dinner cruise for the two of you. Nooma features a sundeck, a private saloon lounge and an air-conditioned double bedroom – all you could want for your private sailing adventure.

2. Cruise with dolphins

The Maldives rank among the top five places in the world for dolphin watching. At Baros you can enjoy the spectacular sight of pods of dolphins playing in their natural world from the comfort of our luxury yacht.

Dolphins tend to have a regular daily routine, feeding offshore at night, coming into the atolls in the early morning, and leaving again for the open ocean in the late afternoon. This dependable schedule helps us to ensure you have the sighting of a lifetime.

3. Fishing the Maldivian way

Set sail on our authentic Maldivian dhoni and try fishing the traditional way – using a hand line with raw fish as bait. This is engaging with your surroundings at its best. Quiet, slow and extremely rewarding, fishing from a traditional dhoni is a truly unique experience.

4. Picnic on a deserted sandbank


Just the two of you, on a secluded sandbank with water lapping the shores quietly and a discreet chef and steward on hand to cater to your every need. Does it get any better?

Watch the vibrant sun rise to greet the day over a breakfast of salmon and prawns, savour a sushi picnic lunch, or enjoy a dinner barbecue ablaze with the orange and reds of a Baros sunset.

5. Visit the capital city Malé

Malé, the capital city of the Maldives, is the political, economic, and cultural centre of the country and is known for its vibrant atmosphere, bustling streets, historic sites, and diverse array of restaurants and shops.

Visit the Hukuru Miskiy Mosque, known for its intricate carvings and beautiful architecture, or stroll through the modern park ‘Ras Rani Bageecha’, a popular gathering place for locals and visitors. And don’t forget the local markets with many local artisans selling their wares – the perfect place to pick up unique gifts for home.

These excursions add that exhilarating edge to the ultimate luxury and relaxation that you will enjoy with us. At Baros, we provide perfectly personalised experiences that will resonate with your spirit. Our Guest Experiences Team will arrange the ideal island adventure for you.

41% off - Special Offer with airport transfers, breakfast and dinner included: Every space at Baros exudes warmth and guarantees total privacy, enabling truly meaningful connections with your surroundings and each other.
