Encircled by crisp clear waters, Baros is private five star idyllic island, just 25 minutes by speedboat from Male International Airport. It offers indulgent luxury that’s tasteful and sophisticated; expect private villas spread through swaying palms and white sands. Dining at Baros is a real pleasure and there’s numerous options including the Cayenne Grill, serving grilled meats and seafood; The Lime Restaurant, that offers all-day dining as well as The Lighthouse Restaurant, their circular fine dining option that looks spectacular at night. There are plenty of activities for those who find sitting on beach all day hard. Choose from the 19m long dhoni boat, the Princess Yacht, game fishing, diving, snorkelling kayaking, water-skiing, windsurfing and even wakeboarding. There’s also a true five star spa to top it off. We feel Baros is a perfect all rounder and is ideal for couples and families that want a five star experience without breaking the bank.
The 75 rooms are contemporary and have a boutique feel; some are located on the beach whilst others expand out into the ocean. The Deluxe Villas, the lead in category, are absolutely beautiful. These sit next to the beach amidst fragrant flowers and have luxurious semi-outdoor bathrooms. The Baros Villas are similar, but are just a little larger with a shaded veranda and day bed. If your budget allows, try the Water Villas that are perched above the ocean. These are spacious with large private sundecks that make the most of the spectacular vista. If sleeping over water doesn’t tickle your fancy then go for the Baros Pool Villa; these have the most wonderful private infinity pools that lead out to the beach and ocean.
