A very private affair! Located on its own private island in the North Male Atoll, Baros is a true hideaway retreat appealing especially to romantic escapists. This small but perfectly formed lush green island sits in a shallow lagoon with the sapphire ocean beyond the reef. Baros affords guests luxury and privacy in its recently refurbished accommodation, complemented by three dining venues for choices from alfresco to eclectic modern fine dining with extensive wine cellar. A new category of Villa accommodation 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, 19 ft by 10 ft 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, the 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. The Baros Dining Experiences are better than ever following new designs of the Sails Bar and lagoon-side Cayenne Restaurant. Sip cocktails with your feet in the sand or indulge in a glass of Champagne whilst enjoying the panoramic views. During the day a range of diversions include water sports, PADI diving and your very own man-made shipwreck 'Secrets of the House Reef - a diving haven! The restoration of the house reef to its natural, pristine glory has been advanced with a new project called Coral Lines. This uses a method that is environmentally sustainable and close to nature. Fragments of coral are collected and attached to ropes hanging in the lagoon nursery which are then nurtured for one to three years before being planted directly on the reef. This hands-on method encourages the growth of corals in their natural habitat without any artificial structures. Voted the Top Luxury Resort of the year by TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice, Baros is a small, lushly landscaped, private tropical island of 75 overwater and beachside garden Villas and white sand beaches set in a turquoise lagoon, just 25 minutes by speedboat from the Maldives International Airport.
