My husband and I have just returned from our 2nd visit to wonderful Baros. It is 4 years sine our last visit and is just as beautiful as we remembered if not better. As other reviewers have said, the staff make this island so special. They are all without exception genuinely friendly and very happy. Azzam, our villa host looked... More

Recommended by friends who honeymooned there this more than lived up to their promise of the most special experienceever. Villa on the beach even better than on stilts. Food and service superb. Level of attention from personal butler just right unlike over attentive others in another high end resort.

We have been to the Maldives before, but this was our first visit to Baros. Its a boat trip of 20 minutes only from the airport - beats that hot & noisy seaplane! Baros is beautiful - you won't be disappointed. As you would expect, the island is immaculate, the villas superb & the service could not be bettered. We... More

We visited mid-December 2014; everything was impeccable. We have travelled the whole world and stayed to the best hotels but this was different. From the first moment you have the feeling that you are on paradise. From the basics to the small details everything was perfect. We stayed to an overwater bungalow with private pool, worth every penny. Our villa... More

We have just returned from a wonderful 2 week stay at Baros. The trip was to celebrate a major birthday of mine and our 40th wedding anniversary. From the time we were collected from male airport by a speedboat (there were 4 members of staff to look after my husband and myself!) to the time we were returned to the... More

It is difficult to write about our experience at Baros as previous reviews have already used up all of the superlatives in the English language, so let me start with the negative aspects. Well actually there is only one but it is worth reminding those who, like us do not have an unlimited budget; this place is expensive! We stayed... More

Returning home from a second visit to Baros, I can say it is now my all-round favourite resort in the Maldives. Having travelled to this wonderful country every year now since 2001, we have stayed at eight or nine resorts over the years and Baros stands out. The reason is a combination of things that Baros does well: People and... More

We spent 3 days at Baros and I must say it was fabulous. from the moment of arrival until the minute of departure the service was fantastic. The attention to detail was a highlight.

We have just returned home after our 40th anniversary celebration in Baros. This island is amazing, all the staff are so friendly and the food in all the restaurants is first class, I honestly cannot think of anything negative to say, the pictures really do not do it justice. A wonderful memorable holiday, we will return.
