Guests receive the warmest of welcomes in this exclusive island paradise.

A boutique private island resort of rare and striking beauty, Baros lies only twenty minutes away from Malé by luxury speedboat transfer. Member of the exclusive Small Luxury Hotels Of The World group, the destination is renowned for its discreet, personalised service and lush natural environment. Welcoming guests above eight years of age, the resort cultivates an intimate and harmonious ambience, making it the ideal place for couples desiring privacy. Encircled by gorgeous palm-fringed beaches, pristine lagoon waters and a vibrant house reef with its own PADI dive centre, it's heaven on earth for divers seeking the best underwater playground. Luxurious sheltered beachside residences and glamorous overwater villas provide all the solitude you could ever need, whilst a number of vibrant, high-quality restaurants and bars imbue a sense of lively sophistication.


Whether you prefer to stay over the water or on the verdant shoreline, all accommodation takes full advantage of Baros' idyllic setting, featuring gorgeous outdoor spaces with peaceful ambiences which invite residents to linger over the expansive lagoon views.

Water Villas, suspended over the ocean, are no less stunning, containing spacious wooden decks with comfortable four-poster daybeds, sun loungers and direct lagoon access, and elegant furnishings and plush recesses. Opt for a Pool Villa for a private infinity pool, or consider a glamorous Baros Suite for enhanced amenities and a decadent hot and cold Jacuzzi.

Baros' Guest Experiences Team are on hand to arrange your ideal island adventure, whether it's a group excursion or a private experience. Witness the pure romance of the Maldives first hand with a wedding blessing or vow renewal ceremony on a private sandbank or on the jungle-fringed beaches of the tropical island. For the most peaceful way to lose yourself in the area's picturesque scenery, set off on Baros' traditional rustic wooden dhoni for island hopping excursions, sunset sailing and romantic dinner cruises, or soar high above with a scenic seaplane flight. For something a little more active, jump aboard a luxury motor yacht and find some of the best reef snorkelling adventures, deep sea fishing trips and whale and dolphin watching opportunities in the region.

There are many ways you can enjoy Baros' gentle waters. Glide along the surface of the ocean on a paddle board or float over fish and black-tip sharks in a clear bottomed kayak, hear the wind whistle past as you slice up the waters on a wakeboard, waterskis or a catamaran or master a windsurfing board. Diving and snorkelling at Baros' house reef is simply legendary. Located so close to shore that it can easily be explored by beginners, discover a world of bewitching beauty, with colourful fish and turtles drifting just 20 metres from shore. For more advanced divers, there are dozens of world-class dive sites conveniently nearby. Home to a PADI Five Star Gold Palm Dive Centre, guests can benefit from a number of specially curated underwater activities including biologist-led snorkelling safaris and unforgettable guided night snorkelling tours equipped with an underwater torch.

Once you've finished frolicking in the sea, return to enjoy the rest of Baros' facilities. Relieve stress in the fitness centre, drift in the overwater infinity pool, browse the boutique shop or test your skill with a game of table tennis. A relaxing sanctuary hidden in the trees, Serenity Spa invites you to embark on a blissful programme of bespoke spa and beauty rituals. Everything, from luxurious couples treatments to complimentary morning yoga sessions, invigorating massages to beauty therapies, has been specifically designed to help you restore your body's natural balance and find ultimate calm. For something beyond the ordinary, request a yoga session anywhere on the island, or enjoy a treatment in the seclusion of your villa.
